On many farms, empty cribs will permit moving corn from one to another. Moving aloni will loosen up the corn. -Moving will permit t'he removal of shelled corn and also the removal of some of the wettest and mst damaged ears. Where corn is very wet, ventilators should be installed in the :riibs to toe refilled.

It is generally agreed that corn above 20% in moisture this time af year is In danger of spoiling. o'clock; this time being to permil guests 'from a dis'tance to arrive.
