There is no foundation for tho alleged violations
of law attributed to our Company by agents of the
Federal Trade Commission and I want to say emphat
ically that Swift Ac Company is not a party to any
conspiracy to defraud the Government. Nor has
Swift & Company been guilty of improperly storing
foods or of making false entries or reports.
Conferences of packers, where prices have
been discussed, have been held at the urgent request
and in the presence of representatives of either tho
Food Administration or the Council of National
Defense. And yet the packers have been accused
of committing a felony by acting in collusion on
We have done our best, with other packers,
large and small, to comply with the directions of the
United States Food Administration in all particulars,
including tho furnishing of food supplies for the U. S.
Army and Navy and the Allies, now being handled
through the Food Administration.
We will continue to do our utmost, under
Government direction, to increase our production
and assist the Food Administration. We consider
that tho opportunity to co-operate whole-heartedly
and to our fullest powers with this branch of the
Government is our plain and most pressing duty.
The Trade Commission Attorney has, by false
inference and misplaced emphasis, given to discon
nected portions of the correspondence taken from
our private files and read into the Record, a false
and sinister meaning with the plain purpose of creat
ing antagonistic public opinion.
The services of the packer of the United States
are most urgently needed, and I regret exceedingly
that we should at this time have to spend our
efforts in defending ourselves against unfounded,
unproved, and unfair assertions such as are being
daily made public.
