REPORT TODAY For the first time this ' year, the Kossuth county grand jury has _been ordered to report this morning (Tuesday). County Attorney H, W. Miller said Monday that as the law requires the grand jury to meet at least t once during the year to make a formal inspection of the jaii, county farm, and similar county institutions, this meeting will include those activities, The petit jury for the next term of court will report a week from today. Small Fires . , Two small fires were quelled by ,the Algona Fire Department, last week. A small chimney fire at Georges' Cafe was quickly subdued, and a roof fire at the X?har?es UJfers home did some 4amage but was not too serious. THE LONG TRAIL for a refrigerator carload of Kossuth turkeys is about to begin in the above picture. Here John Strayer, Don Kienitz, Elmer Stebritz and Albert McVeigh are loading the car with dressed birds in the boxes you see, on the Northwestern siding here. If it isn't a "Happy Thanksgiving," Thursday, for thousands of grading and ;: sor.ting for quality:- .key "raisers • or processors ' have- During the early part of this month, Swift & Co. here shipped some four refrigerated carloads of turkeys to the New York market, according to Ohet Kurtz, manager. No doubt other plants around the county have been doing the same thing. Trainload in a Year During the course of a year .he local plant shipped a train- oad of poultry from 'Algona. A 'trainload" means from 60, to 65 cars, including all types of poultry. Kurtz said that production his pre-holiday season had been jlowed down somewhat on a :omparative basis with last year, >ecause prisoners of war were available last fall Turkey processing falls into ix major departments, he point^d out.

Inc., of Chicago, 111., was -granted a five- year lease with an option to buy. by the War Assets Administration, last Friday. In a telegram to Leighton Mis-/ bach, secretary of The" Algona Chamber of Commerce, word o£ : the final completion of negotiations was received, and with great satisfaction, here. Officers Expected Today The telegram stated: Gentlemen: We are pleased to inform you that the proposal submitted by Joseph Weiden- hoff Inc., to lease the Algona" Hemp Plant with option to buy, was approved by the zone board this morning. Signed, S. G. Taylor, War Assets .Administration, Chicago. Secretary Misbach was expecting representatives of the Chicago farm here this week. From previous interviews with the company representatives, it -was decided that upon acceptance of their proposal they would lose no time getting the plant in an'•• operative condition. Skeleton Crew Coming Preliminary information stated that the firm would send about 25 of its experienced em- ployes here from both its plant at Chicago and also Neilsville, Wis. This skeleton crew of •skilled workers would get things going and als® act as. instructors in an expansion program that will finally put at least ,100 per-* sons in the company's employ. The firm is a subsidiary of the , ! Bowser Pump Co. of Fort Wayne, Ihd., who themselves manufacture, gasoline" station pumps and equipment.' . : The Weidenhof firm manufactures battery: and electrical sei>.-."..•!', vice tools, such as fo,attery:charg4:> ers, 'filers,-' hydrometers, testers; v _ ^_ -M box and four tome. Sizth, ship'- ping in refrigerator cars, locally! iced before the journey begins. "Half Turkeys' Popular The fal Imarket has regular in price, with a spread of some 13 cents between hens and toms, Mr. Kurtz said. Kossuth turkeys have been running, into good, sizes, too, he added. The average American family of 3Vz people would take a long time to eat all of a big torn turkey. Hotels and restaurants like them, however. \ One of the newer, developments in packing is to slice dressed turkeys in two, and selling "half turkeys." These cellophane-wrapped birds are more in keeping with the needs of an average family. The large 35-lb. bird shown'in one 1 ' 1 of the adjacent pictures would provide a Thanksgiving dinner for 52 people at t}ie average serving, Kurtz said. The Swift plant here employs 46 people at the present -tune.

Other Firms Inquire At .the same time it was reliably stated that two other manufacturing organizations have been making inquiries regarding possible placement of plants in Algona. Neither is what might be called a "large industry," but one said that it would employ about 60 people, and the other one said it would expect to have over 100 employes. Chief inquiry was directed toward a potential site, with available railroad trackage, Chamber 1 " of Commerce-letters indicated.
