Rep0rteBot Be Serious "Next Fall An indication --of the seriousness of the potato ' situation and the resultant potato shortage possible 'in this .section of Iowa is that in which/till^ Hendricksen, of Kstherville, '.'-•, finds himself -at this time; He is tone of the states largest potato growers and at the present time has 50 acres of potatoes under water, 'the tops of six inches -being covered, and resultantly there will be no potatoes grow in that patch. Then, too, he has eighty acres prepared for planting, and this too has been under water to the extent that he was unable to plant a single spud; He had ten tons of seed potatoes ready to enter this patch and being unable to use them he sold them to Frank Vera, of Algona, also an extensive dealer in spuds, Mr, Vera. is finding ready sale for the seed here as there have 'been no seed potatoes" obtainable in this neighborhood the past month, and many growers are eager to get the seed for planting, late as Monday '"that are thousands pj acres of planted, potatoes (ruined ' by. w«t . and .ptjier thousnds acres Will fee too'wet fop pjajjt- ? andihere fc po question.' but that »§ shortage qf PPtatogp w|ll be seriously fell this WL, , • Guy Mantor Buried Monday Guy deetfif Algon^was in But It Really Isn't Hot Yet The thermometer this week, ac cprding to Weatherman Harr.

A Japanese flag, the brilliance f its rising sun faded and shiear- d by a 3-day Luzon rainstorm, ow is the property of Mr. and drs. Henry Dearchs. The White silk flag, imprinted vith a large red sun "and tolack apanese characters, is nearly, a ard wide and more than a yard ong. It was found buried in a ole on Luzon by Pfc. Henry Bill" Dearchs, Jr., of Union ownship". ,-'-,' Mrs. Campbell Humphreys usBand, with an ordnance..unit n the Pacific, also has received a apanese flag which was takeh rom the ibody of a dead Japanese oldier.' 'She has been told that he black Japanese writing bn the lag is a -group of names and probably includes the names of riends and well wishers. -. Clear Away Dead Japs How Pvt. Dearchs found -the lag is not a pleasant'story, Mrs Dearchs says, because it was tin- covered during a three-day clear- ing awajr of Japanese dead on the island. The Dearchses also have a Japanese bayonet, sent to them before an army ban slapped a prohibition on such activity. Private Dearchs has been in the army three and a half years and has spent three years of that time overseas. His pioint record shows 97 points. Red Arrow Division A member of the 32nd Red Arrow Division, Dearchs has seen action at Leyte, New Guinea and other Pacific posts. Only 50 per cent of the original division remains alive today, one other man of whom is Jim Elmore, also of Union township. The division was given a citation, its second, for action at Villa Verde pass. Mrs. Dearchs believes her son's division also received a presidential citation, probably at Buna. Cot to Sleep Oh Reporting that he's been in action until the last days, Pvt. Dearchs says the whole troop is making camp, one of the nicest camps that they have had. He now has a cot to sleep on and a tent to sleep under—and a kitchen where he can get hot food. Dearchs hasn't slept on a cot since early last fall. He and two comrades, guarding the entrance^ to a pass, lived in a cave above the clouds in the mountains. There was one bed and only two could sleep in it, but, Private Dearchs writes, that was all right because the third one would have to stand guard against the Japs anyway. Daring the Japs to come out and get them, they fire to warm their C rations. In Australia Three Months Dearchs was in Australia three months. One year he spent 148 days in a hospital with malaria. Not long ago Dearchs visited a friend on Luzon and got to put his "feet under a table." The occasion was a fiesta which .began at 4 a. m. and lasted two days.
