Says HempJPlant to Open April 1 2 IOWA PLANTS IN OPERATION NOW, SAYS LOVELAND Iowa AAA Chairman Reports '44 Agreements Now Being Signed Up The Mason City hemp processing plant will about April 1, begin Operations according to an announcement in Des Moines by A. J. .Loveland, chairman of the Iowa agracullural "conservation committee. Delay in completion of the plant has been attributed to inability to get vital machine parts. Additional unforeseen delays in deliveries of the machinery might hold up opening of the plant beyond the expected 30 days, it was pointed out. Two Iowa plants already are in operation, Loveland reported, and the other 9 will begin operations within 30 days. "The Humboldt plant started work about 10 days ago and the Boone plant ran a little last week," said the Iowa AAA chairman. The Eagle Grove plant is expected to begin operations this week and the Britt and Algona units will be ready to turn over to War Hemp Industries, Inc., within a. lew days, it .was reported. The other plants are at Hampton, Grundy Center, Iowa Falls, Traer and Bockford. Operations were delayed because of dillicuty in obtaining some items of equipment, including conveyor belts, whi^h are extensively used in loading and unloading war supplies, Loveland explained. Acreage agreements for the cora- inff hemp growing season are now being made with farmers in the vicinity of the 4. processing plants which are to continue in operation after the 1943 crop has been worked. The 4 plants are at Eagle Grove, Britt. H a m p t o n , and Grundy Center. Each plant will contract for 4,250 acres this year. This figure is slightly over the 1943 averages, when the 11 Iowa plants contracted for a total of 45,000 acres. Loveland predicted that the 7 plants which are scheduled to close down after the 1943 crop i processed would not be converted to other uses immediately, but held in reserve until the war has developed to the point where it is evident they no longer will be needed as hemp plants. Fred Butcher, president of War Hemp Industries, announced in Chicago last week that Iowa farmers were paid more than $4,400,000 this month for their 1943 hemp crop, which totaled 110,000 tons. Payments averaged $40 a ton for 4 different grades, priced at $30, S35, $40, and $50, and were made by the Commodity Credit corporation through war hemp industries Butcher said the general average net profit an acre to farmers was S9D. Cerro Gordo Hemp Average $80 Acre; Total at $3QO,000 Gross value of Cerro Gordo county's 1S43 hemp crop was well over $300,000 and averaged more than $80 an acre, declared Fred A Cahalan. Mason City plant manager, Tuesday in announcing that most of the checks were now on their way to the county's growers Another hatch of checks, 254 of them for $223,918.14, have been mailed from the Chicago office of War Hemp Industries. Inc., according to word received by Mr Cahalan. Less than a dozen checks have not yet been mailed he estimated. . ' Net amount of the 346 checks mailed to Cerro Gordo growers so far is $815.28, the report showed and Mr. Cahalan pointed out that this figure did not include the cost of seed or cutting which was deducted .from the amount due before the checks were written. In about three-fourths of the cases the entire cost of seed and harvesting was deducted. The hemp fields in the county averaged about 10 acres each, the manager said, making the net return per acre average about S80. That's net profit," he repeated Farmers don't deduct the cost of seed and harvesting when figuring the return from other crops They use the gross profit figure" A number of the checks showed returns of more than S150 an acre net. Those for 10 acre crops included the following $1,729.44, $1,498.89 $1,539.SO, $1,724.60 amounts: $1.550.97, $1,435.64, $1,675.59 and SI.512.06.

BECK --For Treasu WARNS FEDERAL TAX SOON DUE Follow Tax Forms Line by Line, Collector Urges The 1943 income tax returns must be filed not later than March 15, E. H. Birmingham, collector of internal revenue, reminded taxpayers of the Iowa district Tuesday. With March 15 so close at hand, Collector Birmingham said, it is important that every taxpayer understand his legal .obligation to complete his return on time. "This is a time for frankness." Mr. Birmingham added! "Much has been said about the difficulty of tax forms, about the complexity o£ tax laws and so forth. As I understand it, every branch o£ the government is committed to future simplification of taxes. "But no taxpayer can afford lo misunderstand t h i s : Whatever chances are eventually enacted into law, they will not and cannot alter the 1943 forms which 50,000,000 of us taxpayers must file by March 15. "The intelligent, the democratic thing for all of us to do is to make out and file 1Q43 returns to the best of our ability as soon as possible and in as good humor as circumstances permit. "I take Ihe liberty of Riving this advice for a very simple reason. The law requires these returns to be filed on time. The law requires penalties to be added to the tax of those who fail to do so. Neither I nor the bureau of infernal revenue want to assess such penalties. We hope the patriotic good sense of our citizens will make such action unnecessary." Collector Birmingham a d d e d that his office is providing as much assistance to taxpayers as it can but it is physically impossible for his office to make out the return qt every taxpayer and therefore citizens should collect their figures and tackle the blanks line by line. "Following the (ax forms on a line-by-line basis," he said, "the average taxpayer can fill out his own return."
