Calder wood of Minneapolis late today filed or United States senator on the Na tionalist ticket. Business Should as Big as Its Job If bigness is of benefit to the public it should be commended. The size of a business depends upon the needs which that business is called upon to servë. A business should be as big ■s its job. You do not drive tacks with a pile-driver—or piles with a tack-hammer. Swift & Company's growth has been the natural and inevitable result of national and international needs. Large-scale production and distribution are necessary to convert the live stock of the West into meat and by-pro ducts, and to distribute them over long distances to the consuming centers of the East and abroad. Only an organization like that of Swift & Company, with its many packing plants, hundreds of distributing houses, and thou sands of refrigerator cars, would have been able to handle the varying seasonal supplies of live stock, and meet the present ' war emergency by supplying, without interruption: Tirrt The U. S. soldiers and the Allies in Europe by shipping as much at 800 carloads of moat products in a single week ! Second—Tho cantonments in the United States. Third —'The retailers upon whom tho American public depends for its daily supply of meat. But many people ask—Do producers and consumers pay too much for the complex service rendered ? Everyone, we believe, concedes the efficiency of the Swift & Company organization— in performing a big job in a big way at a minimum of expense. Swift & Company's total profit in 1917 was less than 4* cents on each dollar of sales of meat and by-products. Elim ination of this profit would have had practically no effect on live stock and meat prices. Do you believe that this service can be rendered for less by any other conceivable method of organization or operation? These questions and others are answered fully and frankly in the Swift à Company 1918 Year Book sent free on request. Address Swift à Company, U. S. Yards, Chicsgo Swift & Company, U. S. A.
