JESS FISH , 1 ! UNITED STATES BOYS' WORKING RESERVE s Committee of the Boys' Working Reserve for this locality, is pre- pated to give boys and parents information concerning any feature of the plan that is clouded in their minds. The big feature that needs no further explanation than a bald statement is that the country needs the boy, and needs him badly, during the coming Summer The enrollment card of the Reserve, is nearly self explanatory of the manner in which the Reserve operates. It was stated, at the outset, that though this army of farm labor constitutes a second line of defense foi the country; and an indispensibleone, there is no military feature nor any compulsion in the process. The enrollment card calls for the expression of willingness on the part of the boy to help the country in the present emergency. It calls also for the consent of his parent to his entering the Reserve. It solicits information as to the nind of work that he believes he can do to the advantage, as to the period of time for which he will agree to work and information concerning his experience, if any, in farm work. It is explained that the boy is not obligated by his enrollment, to go to this locality or to that, when he is asked to go, If the locality assigned is not satisfactory to him. The effort will be made, in placing boys, to send each boy to the locality where he desires to serve. Should the first assignment prove unsatisfactory the ley is at liberty to so indicate, and to state his preference as to localities. As to the degree of compulsion involved in signing the card It is made plain that the boy who has signed the enrollment card, may at a later date decline work and be released from his pledge, on the written request of his parent or guardian, but only on such Merchandise of Quality POPULAR PRICES the call on everyWe are headquarters for one to practice economy is great GROCERIES, Hardware, er than ever before.
