Onion Passing Out As
Scioto Muckland’s
Greatest Crop
The onion, for which the great
Scioto marshlands in western Hardin
County known throughout the mid
dlewest is slowly giving up its rights
in the muckland to the potato, hybrid
corn and peppermint.
This year as the onion harvest
draws to a close, an estimated crop
of 500 acres will yield approximate
ly 150,000 bushels of onions, far
from the 2,000,000-bushel yield of 20
years ago when as many as 5,500
acres were planted out of the 16,000
acres of muckland.
The average yield this year will
be about 300 bushels to the acre. In
the period from 1905 to 1915, when
the onion reigned supreme on the
marsh, a yield of 1,000 bushels to
the acre was not unusual and 600
to 700 bushels was average.
Ada Sailor Still At
War With Japs
And Nazis
Richard E. Baker, fireman first
class, Ada, is still technically at war
with both Germany and Japan. He
had the believe-it-or-not experience
of missing both V-E and V-J Days.
His attack transport, the USS
Pickaway was westbound in mid
Pacific when Germany surrendered.
On May 8 he was crossing the In
ternational dateline, and V-E Day
was skipped. Then on Sept. 2, the
day the Japs signed in Tokyo Bay,
the Pickaway again was crossing the
dateline and V-J Day was missed.
The story of scrambled holidays is
an old one for the men of the Pick
away. In the course of 50,000 miles
of Pacific travel this year, they
missed the Fourth of July as well,
but enjoyed two Easters. Dick is
dubiously looking toward Thanksgiv
ing and Christmas.
