The problem of child labor in Kansas is being recognized more and more by the people and by the legislature . Child labor has never assumed formidable proportions in this state, however young people need protection regardless of the number employed. This particular age group has never been a great employment problem, perhaps the principal reason being t hat Kansas is primarily an agricultural state . The possibilities that t he stat e will become an industrial and manufacturing 'stat e are excellent and such a change would, no doubt, bring an increase in the number of children employed unless the group is protected by federal and state laws .
