STATEMENT IS PROTESTED BY SWIFTANDCO. Part of Federal Commis sion's Report Declar * ed "Unwarranted." Statement?, allegad to ha unwar ' ranted. In the report of the Federal I Trade Commission on th? meat pack l lac Industry In the United State | were criticised yesterday by Louts F ?Swift, president of Swift aad Com pany. In a telegram to L L. Bracken secretary of the commission. Mr. Swift from Chlc?-?go sent the following: "Swift and Company protest? againat certain unwarrented state ment? in the report I?ued by th? Federal Trade Commission on wa. profita. In that they give the pubi i m falae impression regarding the pro; Its and the conduct of the packln business. "Swift and Company cran Justify it. profit? a? not only reasonable but necessary for efficient conduct ot the business to finan?a large Inventories at high prices, and to expand facil iti?? at Increasing costs. "The report states that tha five large packers hav? a monopoly of the meat Industry and manipulate the \ market without regard to law. This Is a serious charge,-unsupported by fact?. Swift and Company la in com petition with all other packers, haa ] no control over price? and the poll?*? | of the company is to obey the law. "Packers' profits are unjustly exag gerated by the statement tbat four large packers made a profit of tUD, ???,?) during tbe three war year? as against an average annual profit of 219.000.000 for the three years before the war. This compares a three-year profit with a one-year profit and the ?19,000.000 ahould have bean 157.000,9110 to make tbe comparison Just. "It would be fair to the Industry If the report had stated that thi? n*IO.0M.I?W profit of four large packers was earned on sales of nearly $5,000, 000.000 and amounted to only about t cent? on each dollar of sales. This profit amount? to only a fraction of a cent per pound of product. In view of these fact? the packer? cannot be Justly accused of having 'preyed up on the publie unconscionably.' Th? Trade Commission's report as a mat ter of fatmesa should have explained this and that It covered transaction? prior to establishment of control by the Food Adnvnlitratlon In Novem ber, 1197. Since that time our profit has been limited to 9 per cent on capital employed In the meat busi ness, equal to about 2 cents on each dollar of sales. ?The Ir pressi?.?! has gnr ? broad cast that .ic-yT-e control haa been flounted by the packers. Swift and Company has ?ij.ll times e*-.?.cjv. ? ed to liv eup to all regulation? of the Food Admfnie'ration both as regards the handling ni d marketing 3- food product? and also aa to profit?." capt7williams, OF MARINES, IS DEAD Washington Man, Wountkd June II, Decorated for Bravery.
