will be sent to the CCC division headquarters at Evanston 111 to cover the shortage The CCC has in formed him it will accept Such a check Clayburg adds Clayburgs explanation of ths discovered shortage is this You cant store corn without it shrinking and the better job of storing you do the more it will shrink This just shrunk a heck of a lot more than we thought Since 1955 the elevator has had varying amounts of gov ernment held corn in storage This amount has ranged from as much as 505000 bushels to the present 144000 bushels The a 11 o t e d government shrinkage on the 500000 bushels would be about 25000 bushels while the alloted shrinkage on the 144000 bushels would be about 7200 bushels By not allowing for the proper amount of shrinkage1 when the government reduced his storage capacity from 500 000 bushels to 150000 bushels last year Clayburg transferred the shrink on the larger amount to the smaller total In other words Clayburg says when the government re duced his storage capacity by 70 per cent he delivered that amount of corn to them with out making the proper allot ments for shrinkage in stocks he still had Woman parachutist Tumbles 2000feet into lake
