Mirror Pond Crop Runs About 75 Tons to Acre

mirror pond crop“About 75 tons to the acre.”

Such was the estimate of the mirror pond underwater weed harvest made today by Frank Smith, who, aided by several CCC boys, is now engaged in the difficult task of cutting the aquatic plants from their moorings with long handled scythes. Yesterday afternoon one of the boys tumbled into the river, but got out without any great difficulty.

The mirror pond harvest crew is working from a special boom, anchored across the river. Reports indicate that the long scythes are doing effective work.
