Corn Pack at
Norfolk Plant is
Best in Years
High Quality of Corn Found and Fur
nishes Employment to 220 Per
sons at This Time.
The Norfolk Packing company,
one of Plattsmbuth's leading indus
tries which has been situated here
for the past seven and one-half years
and which has afforded employment
to hundreds of local citizens, is at
the height of its busiest time of the
summer season that of canning
3weet corn. Around sixteen hundred
acres of sweet corn, which has been
grown in Mills, Fremont, and Potta
wattamie counties, Iowa, and Sarpy,
Otoe, and Cass counties, Nebraska,
have produced good sturdy, and well
filled ears of sweet corn. The
1939 sweet corn crop is such that
it excels that of any other crop of
the previous years since the local
plant's arrival in Plattsmouth in
1932, reports E. H. Bernhardt, vice
president and manager of the local
plant. The quality of the corn has
been especially pleasing to the farm
ers of Nebraska and Iowa, whose
fields and returns have made them
feel the sweet corn crop is "the"
crop to raise in future years.
The corn season at the factory
started the first of August and the
canning of this vegetable will re
main in process during the month.
Six thousand cases of corn alone,
which means about 150,000 cans a
day, are canned by the 220 employed
persons at the present. A total aver
age of seventy people work steady,
which means the year around, at the
plant. The factory runs from twelve
to fourteen hours daily, and its prod
acts are sold in the territory west of
Des MoineB, Iowa; Texas, Oklahoma,
Kansas, and Missouri comprise some
of the states that are favored with
the products of this well known fac
tory . "The Norfolk Packing com
pany has created for itself a repu
tation of serving the country with
the finest quality canned vegetables
such that their products are very
much in demand at the present." said
Mr. Bernhardt In an interview Fri
day afternoon. Among the numerous
products that are canned and sold by
the local plant are peas, tomatoes,
pop corn, sweet corn, pork and beans,
hominy, red beans, kidney beans,
lima beans, beets, carrots, tomato
soup, vegetable soup, peas and car
rots combined, chile beans, spinach,
pumpkin, and spaghetti.
Five departments, all in oper
ation at this time, make up the
working staff of the local plant.
These are: 1. The husking, cutting,
and trimming department; 2. The
canning department. 3. The ware
house department; 4. The shipping
department; and 5. The office de
partment. The office department
comprises Mrs. William Nelson, Mrs.
Marcella Ruble. Misses Florence
Leamy and Anna Knieke, Lester
Thimgan and John V. Svoboda.
The process and manner of canning
the sweet corn is very interesting.
From the time the corn is taken out
of the trucks in the loading and un
loading dock to the time it is ship
ped away it has gone through a num
ber of machines. The corn is un
loaded generally by two men and
placed on the belt, where it carries
it to the huskers, machines each
operated by one man. As it leaves the
huskers, it is carefully sorted by the
women so as not to contain any
husks. From the washing barrel
it runs on the west-side belt where
these women take out and clean the
bad ears before they are run through
the silker and cutter. A little device
called the nubber cuts the bad ends
off the corn cob. The cutter which
takes the kernels off the cob, is oper
ated by two women. The kernels are
then run to the mixing room, a de
partment that is solely run by one
woman. Following the mixing pro
cess the corn is ready to be canned
in the filling room. In the canning
department the plant had installed a
new high-speed machine capable cf
oealing 170 cans a minute. The cans
are then strapped and placed In
crates, which are taken to the cook
ing room and placed in retorts. Sev
enty minutes is the amount of time
necessary to cook this vegetable. Fol
fowing this process the cans of corn
are labeled and put into cases.
Twenty-four No. 2 cans comprise a
case while forty-eight No.' 1 cans
comprise another case. On the top
of each can is sealed a code number,
which represents the content, and
date of canning. At the conclusion of
the canning process the cases are
taken to the warehouse where they
are disposed of in due time to the
hundreds of satisfied customers.
Following the corn season the fac
tory will begin on canning tomatoes
the latter part of August or the
fore part of September, it was reported.
Feature for the
Mass Religious Services From All
Parts of the County on Sun
day, September 24th.
One of the tentative plans for the
forthcoming King Korn Karnival
that is being outlined at this time is
that of a mass Sunday afternoon

in which churches over the county
will be invited to join.
The tentative program is for a
parade of the various Sunday schools

have several floats in the parade as
well as bands, representing churches
and Sunday school groups and every
hurch and its units in the county
are invited to attend and take part.
It is hoped to have a chorus from
the Callahan church at Murdock
here for the meeting as well as a
boy's quartet from the Father Flana
gan home at Boys Town to take part.
Two bankruptcy petitions, those
of Leonard James McLaughlin, Cass
county farmer; Stella Mae McLaugh
lin, housewife, -C county,- were

INJURES THREE FINGERS
The thumb, first, and second fin
gars on the right hand of Joseph M.
Hiber were severely lacerated Wed
nesday forenoon at Fort Crook.
While about his duties working with
a plane, he accidently placed his
fingers too close to the tool and as
a result a large portion of the tips
of his thumb and second fingers were
cut oft, with the first finger being
badly lacerated. He was immediately
pushed to the St. Joseph hospital in
Omaha where the wounds were dress
ed and the patient sent on his way.
John C. Brittain Friday after
noon gave onlookers a real thrill
when he scaled the steeple of the
First Presbyterian church to replace
several shingles that were destroyed
two weeks ago during the severe
electric storm when the church was
struck by lightning. The place where
the work was to be done was very
difficult to reach and to a less ex
perienced man might have proven
ratal. One of the parts of the task
was to climb a twenty foot ladder
resting on a ledge only a few inches
