MISSOURI CAVES ARE USED AS COLD STORAGE PLANTS
POPLAR BLUFF, MO., Jan.
21 Farmers of northeastern Arkansas and southeastern Missouri
are utilizing scores of caves in the Ozark Mountains as cold
storage plants, with the result that practically no ice is needed
for storage purposes. A cave at Zack, Ark., known as the blowing
cave because of the cold breeze blowing thru it, has been
fitted with pipes so that the flow of air may be regulated. The
part of it used for cold storage purposes is more than a quarter
of a mile long and 125 feet wide. Great quantities of fruit were
stored in caves during a recent car shortage.
