"This is a proposal I have advocated for a number of years, before different groups, and I would like to see it become effective," he said. There are hundreds of farm managers operating in Michigan, Mr. Vaughan continued, and with varied qualifications. Many are capable, ef course, but many are just the reverse from that and those who are not qualified are the. cause of heavy losses to Michigan agriculture. Most everyone in the professions and trades are now compelled to pass. qualifying examinations and are then, licensed by the state to do business. It is not the intention of a licensing act to disqualify anyone from practicing a chosen profession or business. It simply puts the stamp of the state's approval on a person's fitness through training or natural ability to perform his duties. It disqualifies the unqualified and protects the public thereby, and in the instance of farm managers, such an act, Mr. Vaughan is convinced, would add untold wealth to Michigan agriculture. d WILLING WORKERS MEET AT HAMMOND HOME Forty-three members and guests were entertained at the home of Mrs. Ralph Hammond, Thursaayv November 21, when she- served* as* hostess to the Willing Workers.
