I German Prisoners To Work On jHemp Stack
Hemp Harvest Is Behind At! Grundy Center Plant
Grundy Center, Iowa, Dec. 28.—The f Grundy Center hemp mill will start \ I to bring in hemp straw this week after ' about three weeks of weather that j made the stacking of straw impossi-1 ble. About half of the 1944 crop has | : been delivered to the mill and since I the snow the last of November only I the hemp that could be milled each! day was delivered to the mill.
German war prisoners will be used I
i to help with the stacking. The pris- j
I on camp at Eldora will be maintained j
I until next spring and these men will I
be available for other employers be-!
sides the hemp mill. They can be j
[ used by the farmers for helping with j
i the loading of hemp, and by firms who
may be in need of extra help.
