hard work it meant they must wear
blisters and callous spots on their
hands with a shovel and pick handles.
Four weeks aero a network of
trenches were started inside the camp
boundary. At first the work seemed
easy, for the men were required to
work only a short time each day and
one day each week, but as the
trenches deepened the work grew
harder. Florida boys learned, Geor Georgia

Gary, president of the Ocala Wom

appropriate remarks: "It has been
suggested that clubs wage a war
against the transportation of food by
servants from the pantries of their
employers to their own. It is said
that this is one of the causes of the
shortage in male labor. If the male
members of these families can live
on the foraging of their females, why
work? There are laws in some towns
against this and wherever these exist
we should see that they are enforc enforced."
