Address las office of the Production and Marketing Administration on April 7, 1950, signed a grain storage contract'wllh the Southern Grain and Storage Company, Inc., of Arkadclphia which Jeased a warehouse In that city. It said the net worth of the concern nt the time "was $5,000, of which $000 represented cash in the bank, and the balance of which had been expended for leasehold improvements." The storage facility, the Whittcn report said, was not inspected cither by the Dallas PMA office or by Ihe tilale or county' BMA committees prior to storage of 179,1100 bushels of wheat there In July, 1950. On October 3, the report said, Ross Stuard, grain inspector from the Dallas PMA office, found wheat going out of condition. Out-Loading Agreed On "It was finally agreed," said the report, "to load out 40,000 bushel.* of wheat to allow the elevator operator space to keep the balance of the Vain in condition" but this out-loading wasn't completed until February 4, 1951. On this shipment .Southern Grain was billed Tor $9,690.70 for damage of the grain due to poor condition. "Despite the evident irresponsibility of this operator and his failure In properly care for grain In storage," \yiiitlcn said, "no f u r - ther inspection of this warehouse was conducted by I'MA u n t i l August in, 1951." Tho second inspection was made, the report said, only a f t e r an outsider notified PMA that 'weevils were so numerous at the Arltadelphia facility that they were worltlng on the exterior of the building." As a result all grain was ordered out. ' The report said Southern Grain and Storage owcd.CCC $114,865.05 for deficiency in' quality of the wheat, $18,863.67 for shortages and $9,090.76 due on the first ship-' mcnt. Less earned storage charges and $60,000 on Southern's bond, II said, the government's "apparent loss" amounts Io $70,1197.29. Tollcy Termed Faulty The whole sltualion led the subcommittee to this conclusion i "Here again Is nil'example of the faulty policy of using any -lype of commercial warehouses, Including some operated by inexperienced persons with no financial backing and completely inadequate facilities." Whlllcn said the committee s information was thai the Arkadcl- phia contract was entered Into by two men from Memphis. He gave their names as Kenneth T. Con- nnslcr and J. F. Tipps. "As far as the record before us is concerned, It shows nothing criminal," Whillcn said. "It shows they operated on a shoestring and they got in on some pretty good big business with the government.
