Strongly to Girls From
. Factories and Shops
London.—"Are your girls working
n tho land, to?"
This is a finnilinr question put by
the girl farmer of England, whenever
she chances to meet a visitor from the
The question Is a natural one, too,
for the English girl will tell you that
sins has heard much of the American
woman's enterprises and that when '
the American woman undertakes a
jplt'ce of work she Is certain to make a
success of it, and therefore she is in-
terested In following her progress.
All over England today members df
the Woman's Land army are buNy
plowing np the land, putting in crops
and getting ready for the season's
drive for Increased food production.
This work has uiet with ti growing
popularity among women, as the
Workers become better acquainted
With the many phases of their new oc-
eupatlon, until this year, It Is estimat-
ed, the number of women employed In
farming, dairying and gardening will
be almost twice that of last year.
Women engaged in farm work today
In England are drawn from all walks
of life, from the woman of wealth and
title to the former factory girl. The
latter likes the change of occupation
and insists upon ever remaining a
Will the American woman take up
this life with a serious Intention of
continuing It as many English girls
have done, or will it be a temporary
utilization of forces to meet u war-
time demand?
These are frequent questions put by
tho English women.
Perhaps the American girl can tell
better after she bus experienced one
or two seasons on the land, as her
English sisters have done.
To those who have watched the
progress of women farmers in Eng-
land one fact stands out prominently.
Of the innumerable occupations In
which women huve engaged In the
warring, countries, particularly in Eng-
land. none make for a healthier, hap-
pier life than that of tlix woman farm-
hand. There are statlMlcs abundant
to prove this. For thousands of these
girls this life means, "oace a farmer,
always a farmer."
Most common are such remarks
from the girls who have been living
healthful, out-of-door lives: "Oh, I
conld never live wltliln the close walls
of a factory or shop ugalii,"
Here In the beautiful English coun-
try there are change, independence
and a wholesome environment, which
make a mighty appeal to the normal
Not only has gardening been taken
up by thousands of girl.s f4>r the liveli-
hood it gives them, but hundreds of
women of small homes are, for the
first time In their lives, this spring

of the work of the land army.
That the experience of these girls will
give a strong Impetus to the "back to

Many the girls are planning,
when their soldier boys, to whom they
are enguged, return home, to settle on
a little farm, and many women whoso
husbands are doing their bit at the
front have declared their Intention of
taking up farm work permanently
when the men return.
Many Inquiries have come to th®
committees from young women, who
have expressed a desire to continue
farming in one of England's colonies
after the wur, and the government has
been asked what, If uny, arrangements
have been made to meet this request.
In answer to such a request the fol-
lowing appeared in a recent number of
the official farm magazine:

While girls have proven their effi-
ciency In all departments of farm
work, from operating a motorpiow to
weeding nnd haying, one thing In
which they have excelled is in taking
care of the stock. The farmers have
been quick to realize this. It has
been woman's nntural work to en re
for children, so why shouldn't she be
especially adapted to looking after the
pets of the barnyard?
As the numbers of the land army
have grown to thousands, the commit-
tee of women, under the b,«rd of ngrl-
culture which has this work In hand
Is constantly Introducing new Idens.
For Instnnce, traveling Inspectors
vifllt the district committees, and often
the girls themselves, nnd thus the girls
may keep In touch with the land army
organlzntlon. Examinations are held
at various periods of the year and any
ambitious girl who has devoted her
time to specializing In n certain kind
of work, such as dairying, gnrdenlng
or poultry raising, may enter the ex-
aminations. Her efficiency Is record-
quallficatlons of those girls who wish
to take up this work. When the war
Is over the vnrlous colonial govern-
ments will be approached with a view
to obtaining special facilities In the
colonies for nil the girls whose names
are on this register."
So, no longer Is there a question as
to farm work for women being on ac-
cepted or recognized occupation. The
woman fnrmer of England has come to
