Why Swift & Company Handle
Poultry, Eggs, Butter and Cheese
Swift & Company went into the pro
duce business because they saw a
crying need for the kind of service they
were equipped to perform.
The produce business was in chaos.
Collecting, transportation, preparation
and distribution was hit or miss,
with delay, deterioration and loss on
The farmer was at the mercy of an
uncertain, localized market. He had
no way of reaching through to the
people who needed what he was
raising for them. There was no prem
ium upon improving his stocks, for
grading was lax or lacking.
The consumer had to accept produce
that, as a rule, had no known respon
sible name behind it. He had no way
of knowing how long the eggs or the
butter he was buying had been lying
around in miscellaneous lots in the back
room of a country store. Much of the
poultry was not properly refrigerated
before shipment or properly protected
by refrigeration in transit.
Swift & Company's initiative brought
system to this chaos. Their organiza
tion, equipment, and experience in
handling perishable food products were
already adjusted to the task. Their
refrigerator cars, branch houses, cen
tral points, far-reaching connections,
trained sales force, supplied just what
Now the farmer has a daily cash
market in touch with the nation's
needs with better prices. Standardi
zation makes better produce more
profitable. More consumers are served
with better, fresher, finer foodstuffs.
Nothing suffers from this save
inefficiency, which has no claim upon

Trade Commissioner Thinks Meal
Men Are Too Smart for the
Washington, Feb. 14.-Victor Mur

commission, told the House Inter.
state Commerce Commission today
that he feared the tive big packers
had acquired so much power thai
even the United States Government
might not be strong enough to com
"Even Food Administration Ioov.
er," Mlr. Murdock said, "could not
reach into Chicago and take the li
cense of a great male factor, al.
though he could rescind the license
of one of the little fellows."
This testimony of the trade con.
missioner following his statement that
facts gathered (luring the commis
sion's investigation of the meat pack
ing industry had been turned over to
the Department of Justice and tha.
he had no doubt that proceedings un
der the anti-trust law would revult.
Mr. Murdock expressed fear theat
the legislative branch of the go'. -rn
ment would decal weakly insteeil of
vigorously with the packers. 'm :
statement that the packers w.ere w.ell
aware there w'.ould be vacancies~ on
Senate and House committees which
wouldi consider their case andl that
they would try to see to it that.
'their friends' got on these commit
tees as vacancies occurred brouA
sharp questioning from members of
the committee. Mr. Murdlock saidi he
lid not mean that any improper means
wouldi be usedl and that he (lid no3t
in any wvay mean to infer that there
had b~een "stuffing or padd~ing" of
committees in the past.
"But I do say," the witness con
tinlued, "that even while we here are
liscussing things that have happened
in the past, the big interests of the
country are thinking in terms of the
future. Th(ey are always w.ell ahead
of us. Anid you can dlependl upon it
that they are dloing it now."
C'omm issione.r Murdock strongly
urgedi enactment of legislation before
the commnittee for government control
andi regulation of tihe meat industry,
Replying to questions of committee
members, he said it was entirely pos5.
sible that if the meat industry werc
made subject to legislation such a'
that proposed every other business
might be madite subject to similar leg.
TIhe committee closed its hearing.

combination of American packers
which has for one of its purposes,
among other things, the allotment of
space for meat shipments from South
America to the United States as well
as to Europe.
"They say that the restriction and
apportionment of space was sanc

whose ships the meats from South
America was carried. They have said

that a meeting was held in Chicago
