Marie and Albert Kawalski. 615 S. Bond St., Baltimore, Md. Albert is 10 and Marie 11 years old. They worked, with mother, last winter, shucking oysters for Varn & Beard Packing Co., Young Island, S.C. (near Charleston). Mrs. Kawalski did not have things represented to her correctly and she found that all the children that had fare paid were compelled to work for the company. Other smaller children worked some and went to school some. Marie and Albert have worked several summers in the berry, beans and tomato fields packing houses near Baltimore.
