It wll be remembered that the reports as published recently have been' a week old. Now the government has •decided that publishing reports In this part of the country would have .no action on conditions in war zones. As a result Harry Nolle, weatherman, gives us the following up-to-the-minute report for the week: High Low Jan. 3 Jan. 4 Jan. 5 Jan 1 . 6 ..45 49 00 50 Jan. 7 44 Jan. 8 35 Jan. 9 41 Jan. 10 56 Jan. 11 44 Jan. 12 46 Jan. 13 '.: 40 Jan. 14 41 Jan. 15 38 Jan. 16 35 There were slight precipitations noted on the 10th. .03; llth, .02; 14th, 08 and 15th, .18. Legion Post Condemns Mob Action Against American-Born Japs Down at Shenandoah, Iowa, last week a mob of 200 persons demanded the discharge of four American- born Japanese chicken sexers from hatcheries there. It later developed that all four had been loyal to this country since birth and that one of them, George J. Kinoshita, 24, is an American soldier on 1 furlough until the close of the hatchery season. The Cotton Hatcheries, Lone Rock, employed several Jap chick- en sexers at the plant during the season last year. Willis J. Cotton, owner, itold an Upper Des Motnes reporter Friday that all of them spoke fluent English, were graduates of high schools and "that they were working under super' vision of" Iowa State College. One of them (Mr. Cotton said It was an unpronouncable name) had vol unteered and was serving with our forces today. Mr. Cotton suggested that there no doubt were some persons at large who should be interned but he felt the government should attend to that. He would, of course, prefer Americans to do the job in his hatchery, but so far only Japanese seemed expert in that line. Clifford Teeter, Of Turner Field, Visits Parents Here Just eight months ago yesterday, July 16, 1941, Clifford Teeter, son of Mr. and Mrs. D. A. Teeter, city, joined the U. S. forces.

That is a good name for a garden, but whether the victory will be yours or will belong to the bugs and the weeds will depend upon the amount of effort you are Willing to expend. There is a great deal more to ifi good garden than planting the seeds and harvesting the crop. Unless you are prepared to give your garden time and thought and many hours of hard work you had better skip the whole thing. Without this attention you will be wasting space and time and good seed. The old rule that has long been a favorite of the amateur gardener, never to plant more garden than your wife cdn conveniently take care of, will no doubt apply to many a Victory garden this yjar. So it would be a good idea to consult the litle woman frequently when you are planning. A home vegetable garden will pay large dividends on the amount of time and energy expended. Not only will fresh vegetbles from your own garden add variety to the diet and improve your health, but will also help to relieve transportation difficulties and marketing pirob- lems that are becoming more acute every day. All this can be done on otherwise idle land and on spare time and will add greatly to the victory effort of our country. That extra hour of daylight can be put to good use in your garden. Little need be said about the soil. Here in Algona we are blessed with a deep, rich, black loam that will produce large crops with little or no fertilizer. I have known gardens here to produce good crops year after year from nothing but the natural rich black soil. However, any garden will produce more !f good manure or other fertilizer is added before plowing or spading. Of course, every gardener is anxious to get his garden started as early as possible, but none will care to have his early plants cut down by frost, so a consideration of the last freezing temperature in the spring is necessary. A weather bureau summary for Iowa for the past 49 years of the last killing frost in the spring and the first killing frost in the fall shows that while the first killing frost in' the fall is nine days later on the average the last killing frost in the spring is also later by 2.4 days. Thus our growing season is one week longer. In the past ten years in Algona the latest spring frost was May 14, 1937, while the earliest last frost was April 21, 1939. A median between these two dates is May 4th. Nine out of ten years the last frost has occured before May 4th, so we can say, with a reasonable margin of safety that a garden plant' ed May 4th or later will be safe from fost damage. Remember, a good garden begins in the mind. Start planning yours now—out where the soil is rich an< black and where the sunlight hits most of the day. In future articles I will go into further detail as to the preparation of* the soil, different varieties planting of seed, culture, insec control and many other things thai will help make your Victory garden a reality, nxost of the publications bf the" U S. Department of Agriculture an< of the lowft State College relating to home gardens and. all factua statements will be based on these authorities. Twenty years of e*» perlmental gardening as & hobby have produced some practical facts experiences and opinions that '. will be glad to pass along to you for what the yare worth.
