MAY 4 1934 SIXTEEN NO DECISION MADE ON SEALED CORN MARKET LEVEL IS CHIEF FACTOR Government Will Have Until Oct. 15 to Determine Action, If Any. : WASHINGTON, May 4. UP--Officials of the farm administration and commodity credit corporation declared today they had made no decision on disposal of 270,000,000 bushels of stored corn on which the ' government has loaned $121,300,000 to fanners. The loans, made at the rate of 45 cents a bushel on ear corn stored under seal in farm cribs and public warehouses, will fall due Aug. 1 but .the government will have until Oct 15 to reach a decision on it. Number of Plans Suggested. Under the loan plan farmers can either sell the corn and pay their loans or turn it over to the government on the maturity date. If corn is above 45 cents a bushel the majority of debtors are expected to sell the corn, pay their loans and pocket a profit · If the price is below 4o cents, Secretary Wallace declared "the .government will have a lot of corn on its hands." · A number of plans have been suggested to officials. One would provide that the farm administration turn it back to farmers for their · own use in feeding and deduct its value from benefit payments due them under the corn-hog reduction .. program. Depends on MarUet. ' One of the major factors affect ing the decision will be the condi tion of the market and the price be tw«en Aug. 1 and Oct. 15. The sue cess of the corn-hog production con trol plan will also have a material effect. The 270,000,00 bushels under sea represent only a small fraction o the 1933 crop of 2,330,000,000 bush els, to which was added a carryove of 316,000,000 bushels.

With its wider, flatter tread, greater thickness, deeper non-skid, more and tougher rubber, and greater non-skid contact with the road, you get more than 50% longer non-skid mileage. This new development IB made possible by the Firestone patented process of Gum-Dipping, whereby the cotton fibers inside the high-stretch cords are soaked and coated with pure liquid rubber.

The new Firestone High Speed Tires for 1934, have already proved their worth by constant testing on the Firestone fleet of test cars over all kinds of roads and highways throughout the United States.
