At Least the New York Herald Says the Secretary Did in
Speech at Houston, Texas.
NEW YORK, April 19. Hailed as. President to be at a Liberty loan
rally in Houston, Tex. State of Colonel House Monday night, William
G. MeAdoo, Secretary of the Treasury, effaced himself, says the New
York Herald, and launched a third term boom for Woodrow Wilson in
"I hare the utmost contempt for any one who uses the war for selfish
ends and personal ambitions," adding that his only desire was to perform
his public duties and then retire to private ,lif?.
"I most have your confidence, and you wouldn't give -it tottne if you
thought I were usinfc my high office for selfish reasons. As for 1920, in
my judgment, there is only one man in America who deserves the gift of
that exalted office from the American people."
The audience rose to its feet and cheered.
In this connection the article by CoL Henry Wattcrson, "A Wilson
Way to G16ry," is ''mighty interesting readirijr."

Swift & Company pays for cattle approximately
90 per cent of the price received for beef and
by-products. The remaining 10 per cent pays for
dressing:, freight to market, operation of distributing
houses, and in most cases, delivery to the retailer.
Net profits also have to come out of this 10 per cent
This. margin cannot be squeezed arbitrarily without
danger of campling the only effective means of performing
the complex service of converting cattle into meat and dis
tributing this meat to the lighting forces and to consumers.
Swift & Company's net profit on beef during 1917 was
only of a cent per pound. On all products, it was
a little less than four cents on each dollar of sales. Com
plete elimination of these profits would not affect appreciably
retail prices of meat, or farm prices of live stock.
Swift & Company will be glad to co-operate in devising
methods that will improve conditions in the meat and
live stock industry.
