NEW YOriK, Mnrcli 30. "There
Is more child labor In rural than In
urban America, and eomo of It Is
Just as bad ns in the cities," says
Owon It. Lovejoy, cenoral secretary
of the National Child Labor Commit
too. Tlilfl statement appears In Tho
Amorlcan Child, tho current Is.suo ot
which Is devoted to child labor In
agriculture "Tho Idyll! conception

"Tho enforcement of compulsory
attendance laws In rural school dis
tricts Is notoriously poor throughout
the land. No one section of tho coun

Us sin In this respect, for one's sin
Is as great as another's. No law re
stricts or regulates farm work by
children; the only laws that rolato
ta tho subject In any way nre the
compulsory school attendance acts,
and they apply only In school toura.
and aro but little respected."
