There were indications that the proposal un- der study hinges around tlie sale of elevators to persons who could get Department of Agriculture approval for continued storage of grain. The proposal apparently would involve the purchaser of the ele- injvalors to assume liabilities incur- red by Estes in his far-flung-agri- culiural operations and would eventually pay off Estes' many creditors.
