A cigarette has caused a commotion
among the men at the Crnmnj ships ard.
On the white paper wrapper of the cig
arette was the name of a girl with her
address. This girl Is supposed to hae
rolled the "pill; and put her name on it
for fun . i
The thing has nlready caused loti of
fun at the shipyard. One of 'the quaiter
men In the riveting department got the
prize package In a store near the yard,
and took all his pals Into the secret, A
nice long letter full of "loe and klses"
was penned, by one of the men and about
a score of the shlpworkers signed it, some
with their right names nnd addresses.
The letter was posted and reached the
girl nil right, for several of the quarter
men nlieady have received answers that
hae put .some ot the older "bird"!" in
their best humor. The girl lives In Phila
delphia, but the hoys would not give her
away, Some of them say they lune made
engagements with the cigarette roller
and It would rflne for Groter Wagner,
Kidder Boyle. Charlie Black and a few
others to come together unexpectedly
at the girl's home some evening.

No Mystery in Meat
Some things are so simple that .they
have to be explained again and again.
When things are obvious, people 'keep
looking for mysteries behind them.
So it is with the packing business. The
mere size of Swift & Company confuses
many. Because their imaginations are
not. geared up to scale, they believe "there
must be. magic in it somewhere some
Swift & Company is just like any
other manufacturing business, run by
human beings like yourself;' it takes in
raw material on the one hand and turns
out a finished product on the other.
Swift & Company keeps down the
"spread", or the expensejabsorbed between
raw and finished material, to as low a
figure as possible. (If it didn't it would
be put out of business by others who do.)
' How much Swift & Company pays for the raw
material, and how much it gets for the finished pro
duct, depends upon conditions which Swift & Company
does not control.
' It depends entirely upon how much people want
the finished product, and how much raw material
there is available to make it from. '
The profits of Swift Sl Company amount to less
than one cent per pound on all meats and by-products,
less than one-fourth of a cent on beef.
