WE ALL FALL FOR IT!
THAT MILK WAR
The milk war is just the old game.
The public is made to believe that
a big milk famine is coming; the pa
pers scream about it for a few days
Then the price of milk jumps and
we all get soaked.
The way the whole situation has
lined up from the start to now is
about like this:
Dealers were getting more than
their share of the profit m milk and
the farmers let out a legitimate yell.
Dealers told the farmers to go TO.
Then public sentiment butted in
and the dealers are all about ready
tp give in and pay the farmers more
money for their milk.
BUT! The dealers are not intend
ing to cut down their profits.
Nothing doing! Up goes the price
of milk in order that the farmer get
his little bit more.
So the dealer will still be getting
more than his share, the farmer will
probably be getting just about what
his milk is worth, and
The public will be handing over
too much per quart for mik and that
"too much" will be dropping into the
big companies1 pockets.
This argument only hits one deal
er at present, but watch out for the
rest of 'em to boost the price, now
that the milk war is over.
Or were the rest of the" dealers
really scared out?
