? (ges Women to Do City Work
To Allow Meq Return to Soil
Washington, March 22 The primary
responsibility for furnishing labor
for the farm this year is a community
and not a governmental one, said
Clarence Ousley, assistant secretary
of agriculture, in a statement tonight
on women working on farms. "No
agency of the government," he said,
"can create labor or compel men to
pursue any particular vocation."
He urged that women seek to "re
place men in cities at brief intervals,
to enable the men ta work on the
farms" during the cultivating and har
vesting season, pointing out that "it
should, be understood that the man
power of the country is not yt ex
hansted, and that except for certain
slighter tasks men are better adapted
.fhan women for farm work."

Washington, March 22. Gathering
of evidence against citizens olBisbee,
Ariz., who were responsible for , the
deportation of 1,186 striking copper
miners last July 12, has about been
completedby the Department of
Justice, and a report will be? made
soon to President Wilson. ,
Some Department of Justice offi
cials believe that federal statutes were
violated in the seizure by the vigilance
committee of the Bisbec exchange of
the Bell Telephone company and the
attempt to exercise a censorship over
interstate connection of both tele
phone and telegraph lines, and by the
committee's measures to prevent the
return of some of the deported; work
ers to their homes, where they were
registered for the draft.
If it is found that there is insuffi
cient evidence to justify prosecution
in federal courts, it is probable that
the Department of Justices report
will be forwarded to Governor Hunt
of Arizona for any action he may
wish toMake. .
' Would Discredit Labor.
It is understood that federal agents
also have investigated .complaints by
organized labor that copper mining
companies ot the Warren district ot
Arizona financed Industrial Workers
of the World propaganda among the
workers in order to discredit the or
ganized labor movement. Reports
on this und other phases of the in
vestigatiou have been received from
United States Attorney Flynn of the
Arizona district. '
The attention of the Department of
Justice was called to the Warren de;
portation particularly by a report o
the labor mediation committee, headed
by Secretary Wilson, last November,
after inquiries into labor conditions
in the Warren copper district. The
committer declared . there, was little
basis for the fear of Bisbee citizens
that the strikers planned extensive
sabotage, that most of the men were
law-abiding American citizens, few
were members of the Industrial
Workers of the World, and that there
was no justification for the forcible
deportation, made under the direction
of Sheriff Wheeler of Cochise coun
ts', with the assistance ot a number
of citizens sworn in as deputies. ..
The committee recommended en
actment a a federal law making sim?
liar deportations from one state to
another a criminal action.
