2 THERE will still be need for foreign workers after the corn has been harvested. Erven Long of the farm labor office points out that there are still such major crops as vegetables, apples, sugar beets and cranberries to be harvested. More than 200 Mexican Nationals are now harvesting potatoes in Vilas, Oneida, and Langlade counties. These workers arrived from Nebraska potato fields and will be needed most of the month. A good crop is reported by most growers. Severe frost damage in the northern half of the state, released foreign workers in that area for work in the corn fields of the southern counties. Foreign workers employed in pickles and corn in Oconto, Milltown (Polk) and othors from Ladysmith and Shiocton, were moved south where thoy were needed for corn picking. Marvin Sgbgaa RgaJea MARVIN A. SCHAARS, who resigned from Solective Service, wishes to express his sincere appreciation of the fine cooperation he has had from the county agents and farm labor assistants these past four years during which he has been dealing with agricultural deferment problems.
