BTAtUSHlD IMS ALGONA, IOWA, TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 1965 2nd Section 3.68 Inches Rain Here During The Past Week Nearly four inches of rain fell in the Algona area in the past week, according to weather records here. The official tabulation at the KLGA weather station was 3.68 inches up through Monday morning, with a light drizzle-mist in progress. Despite reassuring words as to the crop maturity and harvesting outlook, there was considerable worry and pessimism on the part of the farmers of the area about their 1965 crops. The colder weather has definitely been slowing down the maturity of beans, and the chief danger is an early frost. Clear skys and a fairly warm wind for a couple of days would be most welcome and make a whale of a difference in the final yield outcome, it is generally agreed. The weather predictions were for cloudy skys today, but probable clearing weather by Wednesday.
