War Victory Hemp Notes (By Kinsey & Elston, Mgrs.) In a : week or so machines the. will look strange to most peopl will be moving over the highways to the different rings where the: •will await the time to start cutting the new hemp crop. The ring meetings were completed with the ..meeting a Whittemore September 1 where the' last four rings assembled to pick tHe operator for the machine that is to cut the hemp crops in the respective rings. Each machine operator is employed and paid by War Hemp Industries, but has been selectee by the' ring menibers. In the 30 rings one man anc tractor -was employed by ,the growers to pull the cutter for each entire ring, with the privilege of the grower to use his own tractor to^qut bis^pwp hemp if he so desired at the time of the meeting. The attendance of these meetings wps nearly 100 per cent of the growers involved, and we assure you it was a pleasure to meet with all these groups. In going through hemp fields in recent inspections we believe we have discovered the reason for the add but somewhat familiar cider that comes from the hemp fields. Those little-animals ,can really make it tough for you when you are in t^U hemp on a hot day, ask Mr, Elston. operators for the harvesting neai.will be called to Algona for- a day of Schooling in handling the Cutting machine. We intend to " avflfit lejas,!; two fields near Al« ha, where several machines will in operation at the same time. Each operator will handle a mar chi&e until he is familiar with the operations and care of the machine he is to use through the season.

Sjogren, writes very interestingly from Nortli Africa, where he is stationed with the U. S. armed forces. Richard was a member, of the contingent which left Algona early in December last year. Then in March he was sent overseas and has seen service in North Africa since that time. He has written regularly to his parents and this week a letter informed them that they would probably not hear from him for a while as he was "on the move." His letter to Ted Larson follows: Dear Friends:— First of all I want to thank you for your nice letter. Believe"me, Ted, letters mean more and more to us each day. If the people at home could just see what a mad scramble there is here when somebody hollers "Mail Call" they would surely realize what I mean. There isn't any of we boys who are across that wouldn't like to write to everybody he knows, but you know yourself, from your trip across, that one,, doesn't have so much time. ^Another v^ry goo,d reason,.is the^fact tKatvIt is So blamed hot that one doesn't care if he moves'at all. If the afternoons and evenings . didn't turn cool like they do I'm sure we would all roast. ; t The "African Beggars" I now very thoroughly understand why these "African Beggars" 1 are so shiftless and lazy. Under every shade tree or bush one is sure to find a dozen Arabs and only once in a while do you ever see one of them doing an work. How they manage to sur vive.is beyond me. Lots of ther have sheep and goats. They not kill them, however, as the hold them 'isacijed." You see the believe that ;> when one of thei people dies he then takes the form of some kind of animal. They ea the one which dies a natura death, however. An Ara,b Funeral. The other day, while in town I was lucky enough to see an Arab funeral. It was really something to witness.

And especially do the Algona retailers intend to take a definite and active part in the September sales of war bonds. The local retailers' committee, headed by T. H. Chrischilles, proposes to organized for the local drive on Friday of this week and all stores will be closed at 5:30 p. m. and a rally will be held in the War Bond Office, the former Steele Clothing Store, the rally to be taken part in by every retailer and employees in the city. At this rally details will be gone into concerning the drive activities for the month of September. Quotas to Sell) It is suggested that each store or business place spend at least 10 per cent of its September allotment for advertising on the sales promotion of war bonds during the month. Each.sales person or employee is to be given a quota of $200 in bonds and stamps to sell during the month. A co-operative advertising program, backed by the local retailers, will be instituted in the two papers here with display ads for four weeks, beginning September 7th, promoting sales for "Attack Day," Sept. 9; "American Heroes Day," Sept. 16; "Axis Pay Day," Sept. 23, and "Sacrifice Day," Sept. 30. Frizes For Salesmanship The committee also proposes to give a prize of a $25 war bond to the employee who sells his or her quota first. The committee for the county, by the way, also proposes to give a prize to the employee in Kosuth county who comes in first with the quota sold. The retailers in other Kossuth county towns are planning a like gesture of prizes to the fast workers in their respective localities. The Committees Chairmen of the Retailers For Victory" committee in the different towns in the county are as follows: Whittemore James Geelan Fenton Wilford Stoeber Lone Rock Harlan Blanchard Seneca C. O. Bailey Swea City C. J. Applequist Ledyard D. A. Carpenter Lakota R. F. Smith Titonka Homer Downs Bancroft .... Clarence Hendrickson Burt W. L. Lockwood Wesley Roy Kleinpeter LuVerne Harold Trauger Algona Theo. Chrischilles In Algona the block chairmen are Sherman Fenny, Roy Christensen, W. Braile Wright and John Cawthorne. Local men representing the county committee are A. E. Kresensky, county chairman, Joe Bloom and Norman C. Rice. Algona $220,000 The quota assigned to the county is $1,153,000 for September, the third war loan drive, and this means that Algona is asked to buy war bonds to the amount of $220,000. These quotas are assigned by the Kossuth County War Activities Committee. It is the intention of the retailers of Kossuth county to get into the drive in a definite and active manner to help put over the September! quota promptly and efficiently. Melvin Miner Writes Home of Soldier's Life In Iran JUSTICE COURT DISPOSES OF FOUR CASES THRU WEEK Four cases were disposed of in Justice Delia Welter's court the past week, all of them having to do with motor vehicle violations.

The same day state commerce commission agents brought in a truck driver for the Brady Transfer, of Fort Dodge, and he was charged with having no compensation plates. He paid $15 and costs.

The tornado came from the southwest and passed through Irvington going northeast. It seems that the tornado split just south of Irvington, one wind traveling north and the other northeast. The wind caused considerable excitement to Irvington residents, and it was bad enough so that the people are not anxious to have another one soon. with driving without He paid $1 and costs. a license.

"During the three months the rains have totaled in June 5.U2 inches; in July 5.73 inches and in August 6.28 inches. This : totals 17.63 inches for the three months. In the past 53 years of record only one summer, that of 1928, has exceeded this amount with a total of 17.99 inches, or a mere .36 of an inch more. Rained 44 Days "However, the summer of 1943 has the summer of 1928 beaten in one way that will explain why haying and harvest have been so delayed and also why we have such a luxuriant crop of weeds. This year, during the three months period we have had rain 44 days' out of the 92, while in 1928 the rain all came in just half that number, 22 days. "Considering the fact that the rains of 1928 were much heavier, the run-off was much greater than this year. The many frequent lighter rains of 1943 enabled a large portion of the moisture to soak into the 5Q.il. Hence the damp summer, the mud, the weeds and the high humidity." Herbert Blake, 55, LuVerne Farmer, Dies '' ''Funeral Services for Herbert Blake, 55, LuVerne farmer, were held Wednesday afternoon at Bradgate, Iowa, from the M. E. church, as were also services for his father-in-law, Thomas Joliffe, 68, of Bradgate. Mr. Blake died Sunday evening from a heart ailment, a patient in a Fort Dodge hospital, and later that same evening Mr. Joliffe passed away at his home in Bradgate. Mr. Blake is survived by his wife and four daughters, Mrs. Laural Wosster of Bradgate, Mrs. Edw. Erdman of LuVerne, ' and Margaret and Norma at home. Mr Blake had operated the forme Grant Jennings farm near Li Verne the past five years. FRANK BAILEY, 83, PIONEER, PASSES Following an illness of only a few days Frank Bailey, Kossuth pioneer' and Fenton merchant for nearly a half century, passed away in an Emmetsburg hospital Tuesday afternoon. At this writing funeral arrangements had not as yet been completed. A daughter, Lieutenant Marjorie Bailey, of the nurses' corps of Panama, arrived home Monday, and a son, Pvt. John Bailey of San Angelo, Texas, is home on furlough. Kossuth' Pioneer Frank Bailey enjoyed a wide acquaintance in Kossuth and especially; .the western- part ••of the county. His father homesteader! three miles northeast of Algona in 1869. When a young man Frank opened a store at a point two miles east of the present Fenton. In the early 90's he moved the store to Fenton and had been in the general mercantile business there ever since. Melvin Miner, s"on of Mrs. Edith Miner, has written home some interesting letters about conditions in Iran where he has been stationed for several months. In a recent letter to Mrs. Ann Fechner he went into some detail about the life of an Iowa soldier in that country and we are printing it for Melvin's many friends to read. The picture, taken from one sent recently to his mother, show Melvin with a group of small Persian children, and it is easy to recognize his goodnatured, friendly grin, although the dark glasses shield his eyes. His letter follows. Dear Ann: . • Just got your letter of July 3 this morning and I'm getting it answered within an hour of the time I got the letter.

It is hoped that the solicitation can all be done in one day and people are urged to be ready to sign up for their share and more of war bonds. Solicitors will be supplied with a pledge card form on which the subscriber agrees to purchase a specified amount in bonds during the month of September. The subscriber will be given a stub from the pledge card, which he is asked to turn in to the bank or post office when he makes the actual purchase. In addition, solicitors will have application forms for the popular series E bonds. Checks' will be secured from the subscribers who wish to have their bonds issued right away. The bonds will be issued by the bank or post. office according to the subscribers own choice. All purchase made on or after September 1st are counted in the drive even though the purchase is made prior to the date of the campaign. With the war costing us over $100,000,000 a day more than it cost a year ago a tremendous financing program is necessary. Not only is the sale of bonds necessary to finance the war program, but the putting of money into bonds helps to prevent further inflation. "Nest egg" of bonds will help ;he owners of the bonds to tide ;hern over the re action in business which is bound to come when the war is over. It is still a long oad to Berlin and Tokio, pn d gossuth county residents will do heir part in helping finance their boys on the way to the Nazis apitals. 5orensen Boy* Hear Denmark Folks I don't know whether you know anything about this country I'm in or not, so I'll try and give you a little idea of what it's like. Of course there are things I can't tell you about till I get home, but I'll give you a little idea of what a few things are like. First of air the weather- is just-hotter."thanHell,- arid when I say Hell, I mean Hell. I saw a notice today where it had been from 175 to 180 here in Iran and that is not just exactly cool. One thing in our favor though, is that H cools off at night so you can get your sleep and as there is nothing to do but work, eat and sleep, I get plenty of sleep. As for any change in me, there are few. I have lost some weight, but I lost it where it did the most good. I no longer have the bay window I used to have. It just melted away. I'm feeling good, though, and everything is ok, so I guess that's all that's necessary. There, is just no place to go around here, and nothing to spend money for. Everything around here is off limits and one look at the place will show you why it's off limits. The people are all black color, but if it was not their natural color, they would be black from dirt. You have never seen dirt or filth in your life till you see these Persians. It is just un- believeable. Since the Americans got here, prices of everything have gone sky high. They make a lot of rings and bracelets out of silver, but they are no good. They turn black when you wear them I'm working in the Post Ex change and along with everything else I sell officers clothes. Jus can't iget away from it. We alsc handle cigarettes, candy, cookies toilet articles, and the like. buy all those things at cost. Cigarettes cost us about forty-fivi cents a carton. It costs very little to get along over here. Being there is no place to go, and nothing to spend your money for, everyone is either sending money home ^or buying bonds. One thing I do miss is fresh meat. I have not had any since January 1. So the next time you buy a steak, buy a big one anc think of'me when you''eat it. Our food is all good quality, but can- ried spam, corned beef and stew get old. We get quite a lot of canned fruit and things like that, bu right now I would like to go to work on a nice big steak, aw about the size of a tub. This,no doubt sounds like iUi - J .'- TAX COMMISSION DENIES CLAIMS FOR EXEMPTIONS State to Check Claims 385,000 1942. Follow Up and Homestead Tax From Now On; Applications lit lot worse.

Well the flys have gone and it won't be long till it's August, and -I'll see if they know what they are talking about. It will be something to look forward to. These natives have never seen a corn fed boy froiyi Iowa before and don't know what he can take. Then again, that corn fed boy was never in Iran before, and don't know just how hot it can get.

Jaycees Sponsor Smokes For the Boys In Service In a special drive to augment the "milk bottle" cigaret fund the Junior Chamber of Commerce will promote sales of cartons of cigarets for overseas service men Saturday, the 4th. Booths will be established on the Security Bank corner, the Druggists Mutual corner and in the former States Cafe building. Here may be purchased a carton of cigarets for 50c. The purchaser places his name and address on a card which is enclosed with the carton and when this is delivered to the overseas boy he signs his name on the reverse side and then the card is mailed back to the United States to the original donor. Members of the Jaycee committee hopes to sell thousands of smokes for the Ame/lcan boy who is serving on foreign seas and shores. And, too, it is a privilege for those of us on the home front to remember the son, brother or friend who is doing his -bit in strange lands.

Help For YOHI< i94a Estimated Tax Filing A representative of the offj.^ of collector of' «*Jifrnjl reygnuj will be at the'Algoaa ppst offing, §S* »%_"• & * (WMA»P Homestead exemption credits have been set aside in 16 counties in the state so far this year by the State Tax Commission. One of the sixteen counties is that of Kossuth where six claims have been .cancelled. This is the first time in the six years since enactment of the homestead exemption law that the state tax commission is ordering cancellation of already allowed credits 'over the state. 132 Credits .Set Aside Up to the :pres%rit commission records show : that in'.-l32 instances credits have been ordered set aside as being "not justified under the law and not substantiated! by proper facts and should nott have been allowed." All were paid this year and vary from $1 to $62.50. There were 150 more- cases reported • under examination and numerous other actions are contemplated in various parts of the state. The Law The homestead exemption act was passed by the 1937 legislature, and provides up to $62.50 a year credit on the property tax assessed against the individual living in his home. This means that in order to benefit by the exemption the owner-must reside in the property six 'months of the taxable year. That is, he must live in the property six months and a day. in order that exemption may not be asked on two properties because of living six months in each. Improper Filings The commission cited instances where parents filed for homestead, benefits .on • houses they owned but in which lived sons or daughters and their families. Others filed for property in which they, had*,never.:lived. -In-other' STOVE DEALERS MUST REGISTER WITHLOCALBOARD Dealers and distributors of most types of domestic cooking and heating stoves rationed on a nation-wide basis August 24, -must register Wednesday, Thursday and Friday (September 1, 2 and 3) with their local .War Price and Rationing Board, reporting the number of stoves they sold during 1942 or 1941, whichever figure is larger, and the number of stoves they had in stock August 31 last, it was announced today by W. P. French, chairman of the local board. After Friday (September 3) a dealer or distributor may not buy or sell rationed stoves unless he is registered with his rationing es * are * n rals property but lives board. Under the program, covet-- JJJJkwn assets homestead, hence ing coal and wood heating''stoves and laundry stoves (except water-heating laundry stoves), coal and wood ranges, gas heating stoves and heaters, gas, ranges, oil as '.three'.- andKfour ^properties.' The, claims are'certified''by the county board of'supervisors to the county treasurer who in turn certifies them to the tax commission. Six Kossuth Cases There were six Kossuth county exemption claims set aside by the tax commission., County Auditor Leo Imrnerfall was notified, of the action of .the commission and he must take steps to see that the. proper assessed tax is paid. In case of refusal to settle the ta* will be charged to the property- and must be paid with the next years collection: Fenton Township The first case was that of Fred Boettcher, Fenton township, who claimed homestead exemption on the SW SW 27-97-30. He was given a credit of $42.00. However, because his mother had a life estate in the property but did not live thereon the claim was cancelled. Since this action, however, his mother has -passed away and he will be allowed exemption on next years taxes., Garfield Township Art Zinnel, NW 31-94-30, Garfield township, was given a credit of $41.34. This was cancelled because his mother had..a life estate n the property but did not live on it. She, too, has since passed away and Mr. Zinnel may "benefit by the exemption next year. Cresco Township David C. King, Cresco township. NE NE 13-95-29, was allowed a credit of $55. This was cancelled >ecause his mother, Mrs. W, H. • King, has a life estate in the property but lives in/Algona, and not on the farm. Union Township Frank T, Doege, NW NW 3-989, Union township, was given an exemption credit of $43.05 fo» 942.
