Vegetable growers in Essex and Kent Counties are watching their acres of tomatoes ripen and wondering whether they will get them to market. Some say. they have lost con- fidence in Canada Manpower as a source of seasonal help and are looking to Mexico to -supply harvest help. Vern a director of the tutarb Fruit and Vegetable says he would be able to bring in enough help from Mexico in one week to harvest the entire crop. if we stand back and wait for Manpower to supply the we may never get the crops he says. He estimates farmers in the area wil need about workers to bring in the to- mato crop. The problem is com- pounded since the harvest runs into long after students have returned to school. And Mr. Toews estimates only about 10 per cent of Cana- dian help supplied by Man- power will remain on the Job through the harvest. A Kent County grower said he was forced to plow under 15 acres of tomatoes last year when most of his help left. Jim Dickie of Can- ada Manpower agricultural programs coordinator for On- agrees that local labor is a problem this year. He says abaut workers from Barbados and Jamaica work in the Florida sugar cane crop and ftese same workers are available for the Ontario crops. Last only workers were brought in under the pro- but Mr. Dickie expects there will be about this year. But growers are reluctant to tap the Caribbean labor be- cause they must pay a re- turn air fare. To escape costly transpor- tation growers would like to tap the Mexican and Portuguese markets. Mr. Dickie says the major problem associated with help is the policing to make sure all the workers leave the country after the harvest. have been many people who came to Canada over the last few years and then stayed. We are still trying to find some of those Al Windsor area Manpower has as- sured the growers they will be able to get work visas for the foreign help only after all sources of Canadian help have bsen exhausted. He that by September the labor supply may be exhausted and grow- ers will be granted permits to bring in Mexican or Portuguese help.

John a Leamiiigton area says be has re- placed about 100 acres of vege- table crops with wheat and sim- ilar crops that don't require the same amount of labor.

LONDON A com- mittee of medical and scientific experts has concluded after a 10-year study that adding fluor- ide to water supplies may not only be of dubious value in pre- venting tooth decay but actual- ly harmful. The British government be- lieves fluoride to be an impor- tant factor in dental but has left the matter up to local authorities. About 3.5 million persons in England now receive drinking water treated with fluoride. The committee of veterinarians and sci- entists which produced the an- tifluoride report say they have evidence that fluoride merely delays the onset of tooth decay in children for one or two years and thereafter has no effect on the rapidity of decay. Tooth enamel containing flu- oride might be more brittle and therefore weaker and fluoride may also cause stained and un- sightly teeth in older the report said.
