THE SPRINGFIELD NEW
WOMEN. CAN HELP
How to Assist In Solving the
Farm-Labor, Problsm; . Many
Ways to Rtfldsr'-iSsrvfcf.
Wlillo women can do much la the
olutlon of tbo complex nnd nUicr
pressing farm-labor problem, It should
bo understood that, the man power of
the countrr la not yet exhausted and
that, except for certain lighter taski,
men aro better Adapted thun women
for farm labor.
On account of Uio domanda for la
bor In nocoBBary Industrie, und be
cAuno for many yoara pant tho cltlea
with tholr attractions of high wages
and ntnuaoinonu lmvo drawn muny
men from tho farms, thcra' la not ntixi
enough labor seeking employment to
NUpply the domand of the farina for
extra holp, 'especially during the
periods of aeaBonnl strain for culti
vating and harvesting.
Whllo much la bohiR done by tho
Departments of Agrlculturo and of
Labor, to mobilize man power for
farming operations, much yet remains
to bo done If wo aro to make sura tho
aavlng of the crops which aro now,
vMutt Assume Responsibility.
Tho primary responsibility must bo
aisumod by tho regions and communi
ties; most vitally affected, because no
money of government can create la
bor or compel men to purauo any par
ticular vocation. In all towns and
cltlea adjacent to agricultural reglonn
thoro nro many men of farm experi
ence who can bo spared for a day at
a tlmo or n week at a time, na tho
case may bo, to holp tho farmers with
tholr most pressing tasks, jn many
such towns and cities last year men
wero spared from ordinary buslncsH
anil Industry, from otllcoa and shops,
und crops wero cultivated nnd har
vested which oihurwlso might lmvo
Buffered sorlouH losa. Such adjust
ments must bu made thin year and un
doubtedly will bo mado when tho
communities affected come Into a full
realization of tho neccHHltloH of tho
in releasing tho mon of farm exper
ience In tho cities for farm Inhor,
many women can bo utilised to tnko
their placoa for a fow dayH at u time
or" Tor a whole BertUon. GonS'rally
upoaklng, It will bocomu more and
more necessary for womon to take tho
places of men In nil occupations.
How Women Can Help.
in nddltnon to rellovlng Miion In
towns and citlca, womon can actuully
perforin many farm -ta8kft, such as
dairying, vegetable cultivation, fruit
gathorlng, etc. Tho precise mothod
of utilizing women for furm labor can
not Uo proscribed In any uniform plan,
but it will dopond upon conditions In
tho community, nnd upon tho farms.
Of course, ateps must bo taken to seu
that women laborers are properly
housed and otherwise are safeguarded
from unnecessary hardships. Wo
men who nro not physically ablo to
perform farm labor may bo of great
service to farmors by nBcortalnlng
Uiolr neoda for lnbor and endeavoring
to supply such noeds. organized
groups of women oagor to render pub
lic sorvloo might well undertake by
personal visitation to make Hur.voys
ot tho farm-labor situation in tholr
neighborhoods. Moro holpful oven
than that In many places would bo
for somo of tho womon of tho towns
nnd cities to tako tho placoa of tholr
country sisters during tho porlodB of
labor stress and actually do tho house
work In order that tho women of tho
farms may holp thor husbands) Somo
of tho finest of our Amorlcnn women
nro cooking nnd washing dishes In tho
hospitals of Franco. Tho women ot
France are botwoon tho plow handles.
No good woman would hesitate to
keep house for her sick friend for a
week. It would bo bonutlful sorvlco
It city women would keep house for
country women for a llttlo while. Of
course, this la not as attractive or as
romantic as binding up tho wounda ot
soldiers, but It la ono of tho things
that must bo dono It tho soldiers are
to be fod.
It docs not seems to bo possible td
work out any uniform plan ot mobiliz
ing farm labor or of directing tho em
ployment ot womon on farmB. Tho
