Members of the county soil conservation committee, and county agent A. L. Brown were attending a meeting at Mason, City, Wednesday, at which details in connection with the agricultural program, and the corn loan were discussed. v Apply to Sealer* At this point, it waa understood that applications for corn loans will be made through the otwnship sealers. They In turn will probably take samples of com, to be sent to Des Moinea or Ames for a "est of moisture content. A farmer, to bo eligible for a corn loan must have been in the 1937 program, and met all re- quircmente. The loon rate is 50 cents n bushel baaed upon a moisture content of 14!<i per cent and a volume of two and one-half cubic feet If the moisture, content I* higher than HH per cent, the volume of the corn In the crib Is reduced by two per cent for every one per cent of moisture above H',4 per cent. An example to explain the point sasls is this: if a crib would hold 1,000 bushels of corn with a mois- :ure content of HVi per cent. It would hold only 940 bushels of corn f the moisture consent was 17Mr per cent. But In this case the loan rate would be 00 cents per bushel on the actual bushels figured" to be in the crib. The maximum moisture content allowed In sealed corn la 20% per cent. Other Requirements Other requirements are that the corn must be stored in approved cribs and permanent cribs, to be eligible for a loan. of the intended victims might be ealied into take a look at Kmo.-y.
