Most of this corn will grade No. 3 or better. In Cerro Gor'do County, this would mean a minimum price of $1.54, or 23 cents less than the regular February "formula price" for government-owned corn here, according to Harold F. Anderegg, chairman of the county ASC committee. He stated that there are around 800,000 bushels of 1948 and 1949 corn stored in CCC binsites in this county. Instructions on the sale of the older corn have just been received by 'the county ASC office and prospective buyers may obtain complete information; there. A : few eastern and southern co'.inties of the state have no 1948 and 1949 corn in their government bins but buyers in those areas may make purchases in other 1 counties. It is hoped there will be no sales of lots of less than 200 bushels but there may be later decisions on both maximum and minimum sales to meet unusual local circumstances. It has been announced, however, that all corn sold under this plan may be used in any way the buyer desires.
