            are signing up for summer work on farms. Reports from
            counties show that city and school youth volunteers will
            again furnish a substantial proportion of the placements

            school lads to substitute for hired hands who are hard to
            get. Youth placements for the month of May in this county
            took precedence over every other kind of work.

            Ing for farm jobs than can be supplied with work, pro-
            bably because of a general slackening of industrial em-
            ployment in that county.
