THURSDAY, JANUARY 28, 18« Hemp Plant Cut Likely MASON CITY GLOBE-G^ZETTfc BAD WEATHER IN SEED PRODUCING AREA IS BLAMED Contracts for Plants Expected in February;'. Two Already Awarded WASHINGTON, (IF) -- T h e amount o£ hemp seed obtained from Kentucky will finally determine the acreage to be planted this spring and the number of hemp breaking plants to be constructed in six states, S. H. McCrory, director of the hemp division, Commodity Credit Corporation, said Thursday. It was originally planned to seed 300,000 acres in Minnesota Wisconsin, Iowa, Indiana, Illinois and Kentucky to obtain badly needed hemp fiber, since foreign sources were cut off, and to build 72 plants. * * * Unusually bad .weather in Kentucky, however, where the feed is grown, h»s necessitated revising plans to plant about 2M.OOO acres and construct 42 to 55 plants, McCrory said, and this is subject to revision again when the amount of seed available is finally determined. * * * Under the original plans, it was expected 60,000 acres would be seeded each in Minnesota, Iowa and Illinois; 40,000 in Wisconsin 48,000 in Kentucky and 32,00( acres in Indiana. Construction plans called for 15 plants each in Minnesota, Iowa and Illinois eight in Wisconsin and Indiana and 11 in Kentucky. McCrory .said, that i£ the program is finally cut about one- third, the proportionate, cut in acreage and plants built in each of the states would be on aboul the same ratio--with some variations. * * * Contracts for two plants have been awarded--at Winchester, Ky., and Polo, HI.--and announcement of additional contracts Is expected to be made in February, MeCrory said. Each plant is expected to cost about $350,000 with equipment including trucks, tractors and field machinery. McCrory said one of the main determining factors in locating the hemp plants, each to process the fiber from about 4,000 acres, was the field retting of the hemp, in addition to where it can'best be grown. -···; · · · . · * · * * ; He said best retting condi- tions'were found in southern Wisconsin, northern Illinois, north central Iowa and south central Minnesota. It takes from three to six weeks for the hemp Don't Neglect Slipping FALSE TEETH "Do false teeth drop, slip or wabble when you talk, eat, laugh or sneeze?

DENY CLAIM ON TURKEY LOSS Pheasants Kill 25 Month-Old Turkeys WEST UNION _ The Fayette county board of supervisors in passing on the claims for,loss of domestic animals for the year 1942 turned down this month the most unusual claim which ever \vas submitted to them in that connection. This was a claim for $25 for the killing of 25 one month old turkeys by pheasants. The super- visors checked on the claim, which was by Miss Vivian Blue of Rah- dalia, and were satisfied that the loss occurred as was asserted, but could find no legal warrant for paying claims for loss of domestic animals by any other predators than dogs and wolves. Miss Blue stated Wednesday that tlie pheasants came up in the barnyard last June and attached the poults. They did not eat the carcasses, but were observed to sip up the blood from the ground. When Miss Blue put the poults in a protected place the pheasants then started in on young chickens. She ended the trouble by selling off her turkey flock and keeping the chickens under cover. Pheasants are numerous here. and are believed to be somewhat short of food. The soybeans have been covered deeply in snow for a long time, and the corn shocks remaining in the fields are not very numerous. Within the past week, Miss Blue says, she counted 200 pheasants io one field close to her home. / 'ALPHA CLUB MEETS GOLDFIELD--Mrs. Harlan Larson was hostess to tlie Alpha club at her home on Tuesday afternoon with 11 members in attendance.
