Clark Calls Act "Blackmail" A TRAFFIC PROBLKSI has been solved at the Golden Sun Milling company with the addition of a system of chutes, conveyor belts, tow motor, and loading docks, along with new bins to move ,an average 2,500 to 3,000 tons of feed through the plant daily. The now traffic system was begun last summer and Is being completed now. Much of the lifting and carrying formerly done by em- pWyes now is clone by rnachlne "to handle move feed faster with the same amount of help," says (JL-iaiiy News photo and engraving) Lawrence Jensen, partner in the mill with his brother Herman. Two freight cars can be spotted at dump sinks in the plant at one time to deliver incoming Ingredients in bulk form. The meal, meat scraps or wheal shorts pass down Iho chute (see lower foreground of the picture). Rudolph Holmgren can be seen operating the controls to the six hulk storage bins for Ingrodlcnta. The controls also take carq of the six storage bins for finished products. FROM THK STORAOE BIN. the ingredients pass to the scale where it is weighed before it goes into a mixing tnachlno. Six feeders fit into the bottom of the' bins, three of them operating by gravity and three by a screw conveyer, to the scale. A little less than a carload of Ingredients i...iim-vi (Daily News photo and engraving) can bo stored in each of the bins. From the mixing machine, comes the Ilfiish^id product, pel­ leted and crumbled feeds. Albert Era! can bo aeon operating the hopper scale for weighing out ingredients from bulk storage to the mixing machine (In the background). Arrest Six at Spencer On Charge of Assault Seoul. Korea.
