Reporters scramble for crop reports, Washington, D.C., October 10. Due to a premature leak of information from the drop report of the government several years ago, the Federal Crop Reporting Board has a system to prevent premature information which might influence the stock market. The reports are laid on a table a few yards away from the newsapermen who are held off by a rope. At a given signal, the rope is dropped and the reporters rush to the table, pick up the reports, and make another rush. This time to the phones to phone their papers. The photograph shows some of the reporters after the rope was dropped
