The main questions that confront us are: Are we going to turn the hemp? and when Is the hemp to be bound? These two questions cannot be answered by us nor can anyone else answer them without using the conjunction "if" depending on the moisture conditions. We are in dairy contact with fields of cut hemp and so far no signs of retting has taken place. It may be that word will be received to go ahead and bind the hemp and let the retting take place in the shocks. That, however, is just a thought of how the hemp may be taken care of as any day could bring snow. Under normal conditions in Kossuth county hemp hauling to the mill would be in progress. Mr. Leo Harriman, field supervisor for War Hemp Industries was here Monday and reading our labor situation in this vicinity is requesting that at least two hemp turning machines be sent to the Algona Mill incase we are directed to turn the hemp. and Mrs. Don Weise and son Wayne, Mrs. Clara Craft, and Dr. and Mrs. H.
