NARITA, IlL June 5 SpeciaD.--I .Vhat is to become an increasingly l common sight in Illinois is shown i above--the re-working of corn in gov- I ernment steel bins to hold insect and l mold damage to a minimum. The procedure as used here in Logan county is to use two portable elevators with an inclined screen between them. The corn from the second bin is ele- vated onto the screen and runs by gravity down the screen into the dump of the second elevator, which runs it into the first bib. The first bin had been previously emptied, and holes filled up. Aftei" filling with re-cleaned corn the sur-face Of the corn was treated with a paraffin preservative and insecticide. The screening device used here hi Logan county is of nev," design but probably will be used by the AA.A elsewhere in the state, The theory of the screen is that it will remove broken and cracked kelneis, as well as chaff. Mold and insect dama:e is apt to be high In bins where broken kernels are allowed to remain for some time, I,oose incects also are le- moved by the screening plocess. XYhen observed in action the screen their way clear to realize expenses on seemed to be taking a rather high pet'- the job. centare of small, bt sound, kernels asl According to an AAA dispatch from well as those that were cracked. Lit- Washington inspection of government- tle insect damage was noted. The,oxned cozn in nearly 50,000 steel bins screenings, apparently of considerable in the middle west reveals it is keep- feeding value, will be sold to farmers ling well. The story states that 98.8 at 3nc a bushel, per cent of the corn will grade No. With the roach ne above shown tt;3 or better. Corn not up t'o standard is hoped to re-work three to four is being boosted to No. 3 grade by bins per day'. There are 16 bins in cleaning and fumigating Of the 1.2 Narita and a total of 478 in the eoun-iper cent of the corn grading" below No. tv. In adjoining McLean county where 3 damage has been caused by insects. there are move than 1.000 bins, or over 2.000.000 bushels, re-working corn has been under way for some months and the job is about half completed. ,Vorkevs here stated that they un- derstood all of the Illinois corn in steel bins was to be re-worked. The equipment was purchased by the AAA and the crews hired on a daily wage basis. One elevator ope,'ator inter- viewed stated that the AAA originally had asked for bids on the job. But because of the time taken in moving the equipment, an the unhandy lay- out of some bins. especially those in double rows. many of those regularly in the .k'rain business could not see i mold and moisture. In all the govern- ment has 125,000,000 bushels of corn in steel bins--some of tt three years o1,1. The Washington dispatch says that Ire-working and fumigating the corn is costing just under a cent a bushel. Assuming the cost was three-fourths of a cent a bushel this would mtan $15.00 per 2,000 bushel bin, cra total of over $15,000 for a county like Mc- Lean. Illinois has a total of 14.544 steel bins and Iowa has 25,404. Of the Illi- nois total 123 are reported contain- ing corn grading No. 4 or below, Iowa has 315 below par. --Ch;cago D-overs Jor'a BIBLE SCHOOL CLASS CLOSESJ, ever;no when +be ,. 2u"c!"er!
