TWO MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE DECEMBER 11 1933 CORN IN OPEN CRIBS ELIGIBLE Murray Told Maize in Slat Cribs Can Get Loans ·' From U. S. DBS MOINES, Dec. 11. (--A ruling: from William S. Bradley of the commodity credit corporation making corn stored in open cribs acceptable for warehousing Jn connection with the government loan plan was in the hands of State Secretary of Agriculture Ray ilurray today. ·Murray has been informed that Corn in wire or slat cribs is eligible for the 45 cent loan provided the cribs have poles or studding to support the sides and have a tight roof. Cribs without floors will be accepted, but a deduction must bo made from the height used in computing the numbers of bushels in such crib3. Many millions of bushels of corn stored in open cribs in Iowa will ze made eligible for the. loans by the liberalization of crib requirements. The previous government loan policy indicated that the corn would have to be marketed or fed to livestock. Payment of cash by banks atUl was slow in many communities ac- cording to reports yesterday, but prospects seemed good for speeding the payment of the money. Several banks reported return of warehouse certificates from Chicago because of errors. The ruling received by Secretary Murray also informed him that plans are now underway to include in blanket insurance warehoused corn the notes for which are held by banks and other lending agencies.
