The Alftn* Ufcpet DCS Moinw, Algona, Iowa, July 2», 19*3 - i\ ALGONA SOLDIER IN WESTERN CAMP TELLS OF MISSION Private Gerald D. Allen, son of Mr. and Mrs. W. E. Allen, Algona, writes interestingly of one fo the old missions located near his camp, Hammer Field, Fresno, Calif. He was 'inducted into the service last January pu.t of Omaha and : prior to being transferred to Hammer Field was located in one of ,the Tqcptna, Wash., shipyards. His 1 wife arid baby have been malting their home here with his parents but are planning to leave next week for/Hammer Field, as Private -Allen has been assigned permanent location there. Of the old mission he writes: A Tiny Mission "In this once peaceful and redskin inhabited valley there was founded,. probably by some San Franciscan Friar, a tiny mission. Just a crude' building erected years ago to serve many purposes, a place of worship, a refuge for wanderers and a place to obtain food. It is a. tiny,. almost square little chapel.: Its windows are crude, it has no lofty spire, just a .small hand fashioned cross above the' door. Its steps are worn, the door is :y weather-beaten and battered by .years .of use! ,l]t'is the Santa Rilne. "Let your mind wander back There is No Celling on Comfort at the Chrischllles Store While complying with the government "ceiling" prices on all merchandise, we have heard of no ruling on "comfort."

Please send me free booklet. NAME... ADDRESS.. o'er the early days of San Rltae There out across, the! Valley ,in an old covered wagon a/native is bringing his infant Son to be christened. Maybe a young cbutfle can be: seen hastening to the mission to ask the padre for his blessinj, and to begin their life together in front of the simple mission altar,' or you may see a somber procession out of the chapel to ar open grave 6n the hillside, One oi the natives is being laid to rest. 'The Scene Changes "Suddenly the scene changes interrupting your reminisence, and you hear the zing of a rifle bullet, the rat-a-tat of machine guns in the distance.! Down the valley conies'a car, stops in front of-'the mission, and an aged priest enters the chapel. And you notice a sign "Mass every Saturday afternoon .at 5:00." Within a few minutes a group of soldiers begin to gather. They have taken time off from their war games to visit San Ritae. In three minutes the mission is full, within the aisles are crowded, and soldiers gather around the building, the windows are open and some can get a glimpse of the celebrant while others can only hear. The only service of the week is being held, no choir, you hear the ring of the Sanctus bell and momentarily the elevation takes place. Soon the Mass is over and the soldiers disperse— San Ilitae mission has served again." War Victory Hemp Notes (By Kinsey & Bistort, M'gr We visited hemp areas at Boons Hampton, Iowa Falls, Wells, Minn, and Surbourh, Minn., over tht week-end,- returning .Monday, and we inspected many fields and found the condition' of the growing hemp crops in those areas about the same as they are in this county. We saw no fields as good as our best, but did see fields that were poorer, than our poorest. We,are informed, that cattle .and livestock, will,riot eat hemp straw. Therefore no effect on the stock. Growers who may have ideas or suggestions in regard to the larvesting and to the forming of cutting rings will be asked to ex- jress themselves at the meetings ,o be held in their respective areas on a date following harvesting of small grain. At these meetings operators of the hemp harvester md tractors will be selected. There are some fields where no jorders were left and the hemp is growing up to the fence lines. We suggest that a border of at least 8 feet in width be cut around uch fields as soon as possible as t might be almost impossible to cut latef With ordinary farirt mnchittefy: * S6fh«! border crbps arttunfl hemp fields,are being "cut and the-hemp trimmed t*, to that time. By doing sb flow, the stray hemp fiiat has gro^vn'ih the border can be'cut with'little effort. Beans!'ahd"Cot-n as the border crops may be 1 cut at A later date.
