Fanners explain that whenever complaints on work of the prisoners arc made the commanding officer noes to the field, and through an Interpreter, warns the offenders who usually work the remainder of the day without further trouble. Most of the prisoners In Mississippi County are arrogant and aloof and appear unable to understand directions. •• When chopping cotton last Spring and Summer, they apparently could not understand why cotton should be thinned 'and joked among themselves, as to the "stupidity" of Americans who plant nnd then cut It up. • ''-:','-'' ' ' Better Wort. In JUy They do their,best .work'In erinr> hay, which many apparently had done In Germany, and helped to make a. bumper crop here last year. The time element, is particularly Important In gathering lh» f cron. It was ""inted out. The prisoners' dislike working In cotton and "let everybody know It," as one farmer said. They also. have been used, In addition to chopping, picking end pulling cotton, gathering hay nnd com, to' spread lime .on the ground prior to planting. .

Each of the five prisoners who have escaped In the past from the Blythevllle camp have been apprehended and were put on the bread and water diet and. In solitary confinement for from 10 to 14 days, It was understood. The Blythevllle ' prisoners are taken to and from the camp anc fields In truck -with at least one guard to the truck. It was understood they get the regular army diet "with no specials. 1 ' Consensus of the situation ap- lieared that farmers think the fauli lies in the Army's system, of pro vidlng guards and not Iri the camj commanding officers, and tha serious trouble might easily aris from use of prisoners but that the> are needed If Mississippi Count, makes the bumper farm crops thi United States Postal Note 123 -456,789 123,456,739 123,456,739 nor POSTMASTER win PAT (PUKCHA3EH MUST HU.
