A heavy wind prevailed which hindered cutting operations, i In order not to burden the binder machine, which later follows and ties the cut hemp in bundles, operations were stopped for the day. Schooling For Operators The purpose of the two machines in the Schenck field was to serve as a schooling for the machine operators who are to have charge of cutting machines in the 30 cutting rings and to give each operator a chance to familiarize himself with the machine. The remainder of this week will be devoted to the schooling, after which the machine operators will return to their rings to start cutting operations in the entire area.

D., under the army specialized training program, is here on a ten .day visit with his wife and baby and other . relatives and friends. Willard was graduated from the Aircraft Mechanics' school'at Lincoln, Nebraska, prior to going to Brookingsl He has been in the army since October. He will return to Brookings a week from Sunday. Mr. and Mrs. Paul McNiel became the parents of a baby girl at the Kossuth Hospital August 27. The baby was named Sheryll Gertrude. The McNiels also have a son, Teddy Paul, a little over a year old. Mrs. McNiel returned to her home in the Wesley neighborhood on 'Monday. Mrs. McNiel before her marriage was Miss Irene Johnson, and was employed at the J. W. Haggard home in Algona for'some years. The promotion of Staff Sergeant Clifford R. Teeter to the grade of technical sergeant was announced recently at George Field, Illinois. Clifford entered the army in July, 1941, and is now, serving in the quartermaster corps as chief warehouseman of the commissary and cold storage warehouses. Sergeant Teeter is the spn of Mr. and Mrs. D. A. Teeter of Algona, and his grandfather was a Civil War soldier, serving in the cavalry, Mrs. W. J. Sigsbee visited her son and wife, Mr. and Mrs. Harlan Sigsbee, from Friday till Tuesday, Her daughter, Ruth Ann, came Sunday and then returned with her mother Tuesday to Fort Dodge where they will make , their n e w home after spending the summer in Provo, Utah, where Mr. Sigsbee is employed .on a steel construction job. The Sigsbees are former Algo- nians. While Mrs. Sigsbee was here she-also • visited her mother, Mrs. Louise, Wegener. been received and it is hoped that the last ten machines can be set up and delivered by Sept. 18th, which will be ample time to start cutting. No one need be in a hurry if they do not receive their harvester, as spoh as a* neighbor ring does. It may be to an advantage if the hemp happens 10 be cut later, especially the taller hemp. To Cut 4,095 Acres Starting within the next few days the cutting of 4,095 acres of hemp will be on in earnest. There are 370 fields in the hemp area. Thirty machines will be put' to work. These cutters windrow the long hemp -stalks and following a season of retting the hemp is then picked up by a machine which binds the stalks into sheafs and in this manner they are delivered to the hemp plant grounds and stacked to await processing through the winter months. Schcnck's Largest Field Alfred Schenck is growing the largest acreage of hemp- pf the 370 farmers participating in the project. His farm is located on No. 169, two and a half miles npjth of Algqna J .and-the.;field of 5"jB acres- of hemp adjoins the/ hiM- way. Next in size is the"'field; of 40 acres grown by Walter Krause, Lone Rock. Lewis Merkle, Livermore, has 37 acres, R. L. Kuhlman, Ottosen, 30, Clifford Ringsdorf, Titonka, 30, and several have in the twenties. However, by far, the largest number of fields consists of 10 acres. Rings Reach 29 in Area The growers have divided the hemp fields in the area into cutting and binding rings to be covered by. the thirty machines. Each ring has its cutter and binder operator and tractor man. It 'is estimated that under favorable conditions, in the neighborhood pC ten acres can be cut by one machine per day. Even at that the cutting and harvesting of the crop is going' to take up considerable time to place the Hemp in stacks at the plant.

BUY THOSE BONDS RIGHT NOW TODAY "Back the Attack" is the slogan of the Third War Loan drive. The startling and pleasant news that Italy surrendered yesterday is a reminder that we should add another-slogan "Don't Quit Now." The elimination of Italy as: a foe does hot mean that we; have the war half won. It is undoubtedly true that the elimination from the war will shorten j the fighting and make ij; easier for the allied nations to make the attack which will bring victory. Now that victory seems closer, is all the, more reason .-why, we should "Back the Attack" with additional purchases of war bonds so that we can continue the war- effort on an even greater scale. AH over the county today, solicitors are starting their work -In- attempting to contact -everyone, Most of the towns expert the bulk of the work done by,'tonight. In the rural districts, some of the farmers are extremely busy With fall work, but they, are attempting to do their, part and hope to finish their territory this 'weele end. If people are not contacted -by a solicitor within the ; next few days, it is hoped that they will report to their town or township • chairman voluntarily making a subscription. Every person u urged to put all the money that ' they can afford into war'bonds ' this month. Step by step as we" come closer to the final • attack, more money is needed. ' ' '. Don't quit now.
