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.
