CCC WITHDRAWS OFFER TO BUY 1944 CORN MAY I'45 According to notice from the state AAA office the Commodity Credit Corporation has withdrawn the offer to buy 1944 corn on May 1. Robt. M. Loss, county AAA Chairman, notified all corn sealers and community chairmen to that effect Monday of this week. Following is the memorandum sent to the AAA workers: "Inasmuch as the Commodity Credit Corporation's offer to pur- chase 1944 corn has been In effec approximately six w£eks, it ha been determined to terminate the program and withdraw CCC's offer to purchase com on May 1 1945. This will have made the purchase program available for a period in excess of two months and it would seem this has given all persons having eligible corn ample time to sell under the 1945 purchase program. The maximum moisture requirement will ibe reduced to ?er cent on April 1, which con- 'orms to the regulations with respect to moisture for both the loan ind purchase program."
