Stewart brothers were cutting the ice and it was being used .tofiil local icehouses and trucked to nearby towns. The ice harvest is a standard winter industry in Clear Lake, many men being employed. The unseasonable warmth halted the harvest* this year before all local needs had been supplied. Work will be resumed when conditions rant. In normal years about 35 companies in Iowa cut a total of approximately 37,000 tons of natural ice on state-owned- lakes and streams. This year the ice-cutting is greatly reduced because of labor shortage in many areas where normally considerable tonnage is cut. In the past few years there has been a gradual decline in the amount of ice cut.
