Mr. Thuma expressed the opinion that the prisoners would leave here on or after October 15. Thus will terminate one of the most interesting phases of; the great war as far as Sycamore was concerned.

Their dally appearance as they marched to and from work; at -the canning plant, or rode in trucks to and from fields, became commonplace. People have paid little of no attention, to them in recent weeks. Whether any pictures have been obtained as they march ed is not known. Such pictures would be fascinating historclal in terest in years to come. They proved to be much1 better Workers than some other types of labor used at the canner during the war years. Students frdm Chicago and natives of South Atlantic islands failed to display tie efficiency and energy hoped for. The prisoners, under American army guard, and excellent labor! super-, vision, have been of great help to the Preserve Works, j Although it is known that the Sycamore Preserve Works; plant d, harvested, and peeked the largest amount of corn in (its his-: tory the complete figures will not be available until all Heads are gone over.
