Summary: Governor Andrew F. Schoeppel of Topeka, Kansas, announces that Axis prisoners of war held at the "Camp Phillips Internment Camp" are available as laborers for farm or construction work. Interested farmers were instructed to contact their county extension agents for applications and information. The prisoners were to be paid eighty cents a day. This work program was controversial in the local communities because of security concerns and a preference to keep sons at home to help with the farming.
