Local worker sought for crew: The special census requested by the Brentwood City Council will be started within the next two weeks, it was announced this week by George Wedgewood, city clerk, after the Bureau of Census in Washington, D. C., had advised him that Brentwood was to get a much earlier survey than had been expected.

The city will enter into an agreement with the bureau assuming the cost of the census, and is asked to recruit a force of 10 persons, citizens between the ages of 21 and 65, to give full time for a period of about two weeks.

Full cooperation of Brentwood residents will have much to do with the success of the census. The council regards this as favorable, since many fruit pickers list Brentwood as their legal residence although they are away at other periods of time. For every added name, the city will receive several dollars annually in state allowances, which will go into the city's general fund and special funds to be used for policing the streets, street improvements and other operating costs.
