While for a time last spring it looked as though Atchison County was going to be short of a satisfactory corn crop this year, conditions have so far improved in recent weeks that, weather permitting, the county should have an excellent yield next fall. Weeds practically took the fields during the prolonged rains of spring, when most cornfields were so green with weeds they looked like a pasture. Now every field is clear of weeds, corn has made a remarkable growth and outside districts where hail has done damage, the indication is that this breadbasket of the country is again to have lots of corn when harvest time rolls around.

Attractive additions to the Christian Church are two brick pillars holding the church bulletin board and bell. They are part of approximately $26,000 worth of additions being made to the church. A 30 foot by 60 foot addition is being built onto the church with space for seven classrooms, and office, two restrooms and additional storage space. The exterior is of haydite with a brick veneer. The addition extends to the alley in the east and to within about three feet of the sidewalk in the northeast. The Reverend Ed Cox, pastor of the church, said the completion date is not known but it is hoped work will be done by the first of October. Burke and Sons are the contractor.
