Otten, agronomist, and Professor Wright, officers with War Hemp Industries, lnc.,'of Chicago, were here Saturday, looking over some of the hemp fields that were damaged by hail recently. They advise that the fields inspected should be plowed under as .it would be an added expense if such hemp was delivered to the plant and it would have no value. Approximately 110 acres of hemp will be the loss suffered by growers and the Algona plant. Mr. Otten also advised that hemp under '36 inches ,in height would be of no value arid should not be harvested, as there is no market for 'hemp fibre of less than a 36 inch length.

Monday- noon- hemp that will not be tall enough Professor Wright informs us tha the cause of the short hemp i; due to excess of moisture, succes. sive rains in this area, and doubts if this hemp will grow more .than six to ten inches before maturity is reached. He stressed the necessity of planting hemp on the well drained soil. Cut In September The hemp crop is usually cut when the pollen bearing plants are in full bloom, about the middle of September, or sooner. At this stage most of the lower leaves have fallen off and the top. leaves are. usually yellow. The crop is harvested with a machine specially designed for that purpose, and which cuts the crop with a very low stubble, laying the plants parallel to each other in a uniform swath with all the butts even and pointing toward the center of the field. • , Free From Insects Class Of 40 Young People loin Methodist Chuich Here Youth Day Camp .
