  LANQ     U    ight of ten different volunteer leade.rs who assisted
         with the Farm Labor Program this past month are members of
         our USDA. Council," says the report from Langlade county.
 SEIPIX -    The help situation in Pepin county is considerably
         imDroved this summer by the return of many of the boys from
         the armed services. Most of these boys have returned to their
         home farms but some are operating farms for themselves. A
         few are working as hired men on other farms.
              Another indication that the work situation is going to
         be better is the fact that a number of high school girls
         have volunteered to do corn detassoling work. Some of this
         group worked last year and some who have never worked before
         have volunteered.  Last year when detasseling started there
         were not enough workers.   This year enough have calready signed
         up.
              The present rate at which boys and Wirls are volunteering
        for bonn picking, would seem to indicate that there will be
        enough volunteers this year wit:lout special recruiting effort.
 PIERCE      The farm labor situation has apparently eased up a bit
        in Pierce county due '. artll to the favorable weather during
        iK'y which permitted spring work to move along without delays.
        Also, thcro are about 50 to 60 boys taking on-the job training
        end operating their own farms which has taken up considerable
        slack in the county heln situation.

       help cominf; baek anud in some cases brinving other franilies.

       To remedy their plight, they are trying to get some Milwaukee
       youth through the Milwpu2cee Farm Labor office.  Any person irill

1D'SH4A     All your rounJ help is very sc-rc.    COcumber growers will
       need some help and are counting on netting some of the sugar
       beet workers in their off-sae,-so, who can return to the beet
       fields in time for the harvest
