He judged the Hutchins field would yield close to four tons per i acre: This field will be watched, ' and results published later. Another excellent field inspected was that of Robert Loss, east of Algona. • The tonnage per acre was estimated to be about that of- the ; Hutchins field. Crop Outlook Good I..M. Olson. --K- ftWWHIESIQR ftffl; RUSGtt, 76, AT LOTTS CREf Had Lived In \Yfittemore Corn Purchase Program Defined Due to harvest, shortage of labor, wet weather, etc., corn movement to markets has been slowed up considerably. In accordance with announcement of June 20th by the War Food Administration, producers who sell their corn .between July 1 and August 10 inclusive, will be protected by the Commodity Credit Corporation in the event the ceiling price of corn is Increased. If the farmer commits sale on or before August 10 to local elevator and Is uri- able to deliver then he will be given ample time in which to make delivery beyond Aug. 10. the corn quota which Kossuth has been assigned to sell is something over 1,000,000 bus. Up to Saturday last, there had been bought by elevators a total of 305.821 bushels and' nf this 240,362 bushels had been shipped to markets for war products processing. This indicates that there is much corn yet to be moved out of the county.

Lauritzen, who states that there are between 10 and 15 county school which are still without a scnooima'am, am. school starts in about three weeks or on August 30. Wages for the teachers are running this year at from $100 to $115 per month, Under the war emergency it has aeen made possible for a person who has once had a rural teaching certificate to make application for a war emergency certificate, which must be signed by the applicant the director , or president of the board of directors of the school t>. be taught and by the county superintendent.

A revised state course of study for rural schools has been set up which will be distributed this year amqpg the teachers.

Deeply interested in the problems now confronting the farmer os regards especially live stock production and feeds and his efforts' to increase the food for victory output, Vice President Henry .Wallace is making a tour of the state and contacting the farmer individually, getting information directly from the farmer. He reached Kossuth county last Friday forenoon and slopped in Algona for dinner, the guest oi C. B. Murtagh. While the notice was rather short Mr. Murtagh managed to gather a small group of business, professional men, and farmers and representatives of the AAA to have lunch with the vice president. The group met at the Algona Hotel. Discuss Problems There were no speeches made at the gathering and there was no element of politics entered into during the meeting. Mr. Wallace asked questions and they were answered by those present and the questions all had to do with the sale of brood sows, cattle for slaughter, feed, particularly corn on hand, prospects for increase in corn production, and food croos in general. He expects to make an informal report to interests in the nation's capital which have to do with decisions concerning the nation's bread basket during the war emergency. Honored Guest While the vice president was in the city several hours it is nevertheless a distinctive honor to entertain the country's second highest official. And especially that official also being an Iowa man. Present' at the dinner were Art Murray, Bancroft; Art Schissel, Lakota; Julius Kunz, Wesley; and Larry Brennan, Emmetsburg; GeOrge Hawley, Laurens; Arden McKee, Cresco; Jake More, Des Moines; and C. B .Murtagh, Duke Kinsey, T. C. Hutchinson, Garrst Welhausen, Bob Loss, Roy Brown, Luke Linnan and Chris Reese of Algona. " • Kossuth Scout Executive and Boys Off to N.

Cut courtesy Des Moines Tribune Survey Shows Kossuth County to Be the Garden Spot of the World According to a survey by the United States Department of Agriculture 25.2 per cent of all the grade A 1 land in the United States is found in Iowa. Think of it, one quarter of all of the nation's area of good land is in this state. These figures were obtained from government agencies by Harry Nolte, local United States weather observer. And Mr. Nolte has delved further into this interesting phase of what Kossuth possesses in the way of grade A 1 land. According to a breakdown of statistics and figures covering land areas in other countries, Kossuth county, because of its size and because ot the large percentage of grade A 1 land it possesses, is without • a doubt the garden spot of the whole world. We Have 498,500 Acres Kossuth county has, according to the 1940 census, 604,212 acres in farm' land. After deducting roadways, building, etc., there is found a total of 498,500 acres of land suitable for cultivation under best soil conservation practices. All of these acres are graded os A 1 productive farm land. Arid thus 'the county, because of its area, becomes the outstanding garden spot of Iowa, and, seemingly, of the world. All of this is something of which Kossuth residents may well be proud. Mrs. Nick Fisch Has Letter Erom Relative , In Axis Prison Camp ,One of the .first prisoners which the Germans took when they invaded -Belgium in May, 1940, was Lieut. Leclere, a brother-in-law o Mrs. Nick Fisch, of Riverdale township. He has been a prisoner in German hands the past three years. He is a veteran of the firs world war and has served in the Belgium army for thirty years. Last week Mrs. Fisch received a letter from him. It was written December 15 and reached here through the Red Cross. He -writes that the morale of the Belgiums eyen jf prisoners, is unbreakable and that they are glad the Americans are coming in to free them of the Nazi yoke. Mrs. Fisch came from Luxembourg- to Kossuth in- 1916, being raised near the city of Trome, one of 'the border sites between Belgium and Luxembourg. The letter was written in French, which she speaks fluently, the language being taught in the Luxembourg schools. RETAILERS SELL Survived by.

All enrollments should be sent in by September 1st, so that arrangements for getting the lambs can be made. , The project gives practical experience in buying, feeding, grading and marketing western lambs, according to William H. St. Clair. The experience will be of help to every young person who expects to farm, he said.

According to reports so far received it appears that the Retailers drive for. sale of stamps in July has gone over the top. Algona merchants, with a quota of $5,000, sold $6,458.53 worth of stamps for the month. Swea City reports sales of $159.95 in stamps and they also solo" $3,000 worth of bonds, C. J. Appelquist handled the drive there. From Fenton Wilfred Stoeber reports stamps sold in the amount of $135. C. H. Downs, Titonka, says that $1,032.20 Worth of stamps and bonds were sold in that town. Assuming that the other towns in the county did equally as well, comparatively, then there is no question about the county and towns going over in this retailer's stamp sale drive. RED CROSS SENDS 400 SERVICE KITS TO OVERSEAS MEN Local Man Writes Soldiers Are Well Pleased to Have Kits As They Embark For Overseas Service. I?oiU)r hundred ,khaki colored service kits were packed and sent from the Kossuth County chapter of the Red Cross to headquarters this -week where they will be distributed to all overseas men. These kits, which have proved' very popular with service men, are -given to both the army and the navy and are in the form of aprons, which may be tied around the waist and make them a very convenient item for men while they are washing, shaving^ -or,, pressing. ,, . , - r i contains the follow- Jim Mahoney Selected Section Leader At Tennessee Air Field James E/ Mahoney, S 3/c, son of Mr. and Mrs. John H.

Included also in the kit was a personal note of welcome in the form of a mimeographed sheet, showing a farmer, leaning against his tractor in his corn-field and gazing down on his farm—a typical Iowa rural scene. Above the picture are the words, "To Our Fighting Men" while below the illustration are these words, "From the Kossuth County (Iowa) Chanter of the Red Cross—Greetings. From the fertile prairies of Iowa, from farms, homes, business men—greetings through our Kossuth County Red Cross. Our thoughts are ever with you: we are backing you up on the home front—God Luck and God Speed." This personal touch was the idea of the women of the local Red Cross Chapter who thought something in the line of an intimate message would cheer the departing over-sea men. The work was done by T. H. Chris- chilles. Giving this service-kit idea an added local interest was a letter from Technical Sergeant Campbell Humphrey, in a letter to his wife, just received this week after a silence of over a month during which he was crossing to an oversea base, said that these kits were distributed to each man as he boarded a steamer' and the men were all delighted and well pleased with them. It gives women of the Icoal Red Cross Chapter encouragement thafc their efforts have not been in vain and that their labors will be appre- WAR ACTIVITIES GROUP APPOINTED FOR THE DURATION Twenty-five Men From the County Will Constitute Committee to Designate Quotas in Drives.
