Over in Clark County, and it is a common sight in our own county, to see women and children in the fields these days doing the work which was usually performed by the men of the community. Last week we were given the opportunity of autoing through the Clark County country by Edgar Wagner of the Buick garage and the number of “menless” farms was a surprise to us. Haying was in full swing then and all one could see was women in overalls doing not only their “bit”, but their best. Marshfield Times
