REYNOLDS SHOWS BUTCHER
ARMOUR AS BANKER
George Reynolds, president Conti
nental & Commercial bank, is out
with a newspaper statement telling
how interlocking directorates oper
ate in Chicago-
He says in substance that our most
prominent butchers are not only
butchers, but also bankers. The two
business interlock. That's why J.
Ogden Armour, the banker, is going
to punish, England for what England
is doing to J. Ogden Armour, the
jiuteher, in confiscating $2,500,000 of
meats shipped to a neutral port in
thirteen times normal quantity.
Both Germans and allies who like
a laugh are enjoying the comedy in
it The Germans don't know wheth
er it was Armour, the banker, or Ar
mour, the butcher, who said a few
weeks after the war started that he
wanted to see Germany whipped.
Banker Reynolds tells newspapers
that England's confiscation of the
$2,500,000 of meat "was an unfor
tunate decision to be laid before Chi
cago bankers at this time." Banker
Reynolds shows how the wheels go
'round when he says:
"Packing house interests are ne
cessarily heavily interested in the
larger banks and, as is shown by their
public utterances, they feel aggrieved
at the British prize court's action."
In this case it's England that Ar
mour is punishing by blocking a loan.
Next time it may be a Chicago news
paper publisher or an Illinois politi
cian or a commission merchant who
raises a kick against rates charged
by the Armour refrigerator lines.
