PIONEER HI-BRED TO (ORE 160 IN SEPTEMBER RUSH Detaaaeling Employees to Ctet First Chance at New Jobs Here Algeria's and Kossuth county's newest Industry, the Pioneer Hi- Bred Corn Company, is now making preparations for the first rush season at their new plant, P. M. Collins, assistant sales manager, aald, Present plans include the hiring of about 160 men working in two shifts after the middle of September. Mr. Collins explained thnt only half of that number, one shift, would start work at first but after the fall sorting season really got under way it was expected that it would be necessary to enlarge the crew by another shift of about 80 men, making the total of 160 working. Only men will be hired during September but there may be job* for some women later on. At present men who worked for the company doing detasseling during the summer will have first chance at the sorting Jobs. Manager of the local plant Is Robert Polndexter. The work will consist of sorting the ears of com as they are brought in from the farms, throwing out damaged or moldy ears. The workers will also be trained to recognize ears of corn froni the male rows Should any be thrown In by mistake Into loads of seed corn. Hybrid seed corn is grown on approximately 1,000 acres of farm land for the Pioneer company and in ihe corn fields there are three rows of need producing detasseled rows for every row of male corn. Thj latter is left In the field for the farmer's use while the three other rows of each group of four are picked for seed. The ears of seed corn can be readily distinguished from other ears by trained workers. When the second shift of sorters is put on each man will work by the light of a blue "daylight lamp- In the company's modernistic plant located north of Algona. The actual sorting work will be done on the second floor an dthe inspected ears then go to the first floor where they nre dried before sheing shelled. The drying units consists of slated bins mounted on trucks, each drier witn a fan. electric motor and oil burning furnace. All this machinery is necessary to insure uniform qunllty In the new variety of corn. City Drafts Protest on State Checkers' Charge Algona will probably have to pay the $1,068.15 bill for the checking of the city* books by the state auditors but the conucil does not Intend to do so before It has to. That is the substance of the decision reached by the city fathers in a meeting held Friday night because several members were unable to be in Algona Thursday, the day of the regular meeting. City Attorney Bonar told the council he believed the city could not avoid paying the bill but that with their permission he would draft a letter to the state auditor protest- ing the excessive charge and asking for a more detailed accounting of the MIL Most of the council members were of the opinion that the bill had to be pard this time, but what the council should try to do was to get the matter so much publicity that state checkers would be more careful in making out their bills in the future. A suggestion that a more detailed accounting be made of the bill presented the city was replied to by one councilman who said, "Gosh, they'll charge us $200 more to audit their own audit" . In previous years the same two year audit has cost the city $420 and $240. The bill is three and four times as much as that charged other cities of similar size such as Eaglt Grove and Webster City. An extensive system of water softening may be offered Algona citizens If preliminary tests to begin this wtek are successful. The system provides for installation of individual water softeners in each home with a central regenerating plant operated by the city water department to restore the chemical In the softeners when (( becomes exhausted. Some time this week 25 water softeners will be shipped to the city by the Culligan Zeolite company for trial. The softeners will be installed in various homes and placed on trial for a SO day period. If they prove satisfactory a general installation program will probably be begun. The devices consist of metal tanks containing the chemical, zeo- lite. Water filtering through the sand-like chemical has its calcium —the hardness— absorbed by the zeolite and pure water of zero softness comes out. After a period of time the chemical becomes exhausted and the tank is exchangd for a new one. Thp filter taken out is taken to the regenerating plant where salt brine is run through it renewing the strength of the chemical. The process is some 1 what like using a storage hnt- tery which can be run down and recharged indefinitely. From time to time different elements in Algona have proposed h city water softening plant. Svich n plant would be greatly wasteful according to local officials since it is estimated that only ten per cent of all the wnter used actually require softening. A municipal plant is very costly to build mid maintain. It would probably double the water hill of the individual citizen. So if any softening system is installed it will have to he of a type which softens only the water which needs it. A neighboring city, Estherville. only recently turned down a plan for n city water softener plant which it is estimated would have cost $50.000 and $13.00.0 to S15.000 annually to maintain-. Another water project, ihc municipal swimming pooi. consider- ed in the meeting and it was derided to rinse the pool Wednesday of this week. The prevalence of small pox nnd several skin diseases among Al. ponn children cut down the use of the pool this summer. Since children who were vaccinated for small pox or who had a skin disease did not use the pool, revenue for the year was cut down considerably. Tt is estimated that S1.14R was taken in this year ns compared with $!.- 7f>2 nnd S1.992 the year before. A complete report of thr pool's fin- nncp.e is hcing prepared hy the city; clerk. lUsona Upper JBe* Established 1865 ALGONA. IOWA. TUESDAY. AUGUST :M), Ton Pa ires VOL. :V7.
