TAXPAYERS WARNED AGAINST IMPOSTORS Taxpayers are advls'ed by the Bu. reau of Internal luvenue to assure themselves that persons seeking In formation regarding their Income tax statements are authorized offloers of the Treasury Department. Com plaints that persons claiming to be "revenue tax Inspectors" or "revenue agents" have attempted to obtain such Information recently have reached the bureau. High Cattle Prices Accompany A High Beef Prices If consumers are to pay less for beef, live-stock raisers naturally will receive less for cattle. If farmers are paid more for live stock, consumers will necessarily pay more for meat Swift & Company pays for cattle approximately 90 per cent of the price received for beef and by-products. The remaining 10 per cent pays for dressing, freight to market, operation of distributing houses, and in most cases, delivery to the retailer. Net profits also have to come out of this 10 per cent. This margin cannot be squeezed arbitrarily without danger of crippling the only effective means of performing the complex service of converting cattle into meat and dis tributing this meat to the fighting forces and to consumers. Swift & Company's net profit on beef durinc 1917 wai only V4 of a cent per pound. On all products, it was a little less than four cents on each dollar of sales. Com plete elimination of these profits would not affect appreciably retail prices of meat, or farm prices of live stock. Swift & Company will be glad to co-operate in devising methods that will improve conditions in the meat and live stock industry. IP? gpMl L.
