been the poller to keep the yards

The presumption is strong? that

Swift & Company
Products that Packers Sell
Their Number Grossly Exaggerated
The Federal Trade Commission has
published a list of some 640 articles said
to be sold by the packers.
This list is ridiculously padded in
order to scare people into the belief that
the packers are getting control of the
food supply of the nation.
For example, the list includes not only "beef
sides" and "beef cuts," but also over 60 other items of
beef products and by-products.
Over 90 articles listed are not sold to the outside
trade but are raw materials and supplies, such as
brick, cement, eta, used by Swift or Company in
carrying on its business.
Glaring duplications appear, such as "sardines"
and "canned sardines"; "butterine" and "oleomar
garine"; "dried sausages" and "dry sausage," etc.
The list includes 37 kinds of sausage; 4 dif
ferent kinds or preparations of beef tongue, etc, etc.
Simmered down, Swift & Company handles in
addition to meats and meat by-products, only butter,
eggs, cheese, poultry, canned goods, lard substitutes,
and to a very small extent, dried and salt fish? And
the proportion which we handle of the total supply
of any one of these is absurdly small.
Do you want to be fooled by such misleading
and ridiculous statements of the Trade Commission?
Do you want radical legislation based on such absurd
Let tu estad you a "Swift Dollar."
It will interest you.
