If anyone thinks there is no competition amongst the big pack ers he ought to go through a day's work with Swift & Company. Let him begin at the pens when the Eve stock comes in; let him try to buy a nice bunch of fat steers quietly and at his own price, without somebody's bidding against him. Let him realize the scrupulous care taken at the plant that not one thing is lost or wasted .in order that costs may be held to a minimum. Let him go up into the office where market reports are coming in, and reports of what other concerns are doing. Let him watch the director of the Swift Refrigerator fleet, maneuvering it over the face of the country like a fleet of battle ships at sea. Let him take a trip with a Swift & Company salesman and try to sell a few orders of meat Let him stay at a branch house for an hour or two and see the retail meat dealers drive their bar gains to the last penny as they shop around among the packers' branch houses, the wholesale dealers, and the local packing plants. And then, when the day is over, let him have half an hour in the accounting department, where he can see for himself on what small profits the business is done. (Less than 4 cents on each dollar of sales.) If he still thinks there is no com petition in the meat business it will be because he wants to think so. Swift & Company, U. S. A.
