Lack of Labor Endangers Corn Crop

From the September 5, 2018, MidWeek   "Looking Back."

1943, 75 Years Ago.

"The Sycamore Preserve  Works tolled through the week end to pack corn.    On Saturday an emergency call was sent out through the Sycamore Chammer of Commerce for 100 men to work Sunday.

"Harvester Street was  jammed with wagon loads of corn waiting to be poured into the  canner plant.  The crop is apparently heavy.  There seems to be no end to the tons of ears being hauled in."

That Pesky Labor Shortage.  --GreGen
