FORM EXPORT CORPORATION
Meat Packers, Exclusive of the Big
Chicago, Feb. 19.-A tentative ex
port corporation, composed of meat
packers, exclusive of the five large
packing companies, was formed today
by representatives of forty firms
from all over the country.
Twenty-five firms pledged $5,000

pended largely on such governmental
action as might be taken in Europe
with regard to stabilizing prices
and regulating supplies.
Mr. Snyder said the allotments to
the small packers were equal to the
combined allotments to Armour & Co.
and Swift & Co.
James Agar, a Chicago packer, said
small packers would be in a bad way
unless the allotments of the food ad
ministration continue for at least an
