How Competition The competition that exists among the hundreds of meat distributors, large and small, means Rivalry in Prices Rivalry in Service Rivalry in Economy Rivalry in Quality Swift & Company sells meat at the lowest possible price, consistent with quality and service. Our profit of only a fraction of a cent a pound on all products is evidence of keen competition. Swift & Company must provide the best service to your dealer or he will buy from our competitors. This means a supply of fine fresh meat always on hand for you at your dealer's. Swift & Company must keep down manufacturing and selling costs, and use all by-products to avoid waste, or else lose money meeting the prices of com petitors who do. Swift & Company must make itc products of the highest quality, or see you turn to others. This means better meat for you and a greater variety of appetizing, wholesome food. We are as glad for this competition as you should be. It helps to keep us on our mettle. Swift & Company, U. S. A. i \ Washington Local Branch, 10-14 Center Market D. T. Dutrow, Manager PREPARE TO MOVE American Officers Will Super vise Exhuming and Shipment of Soldier-Dead. ? r NKHTOK C. PAHKK, I. H. S. IUI Cirrap?a4*Bt. l'AK18, Jan. T.?The work of re moving the bodies of 30,000 American dead burled lo Prance outside of the battleneld and ariny Bone, which has been sanctioned by the French gov ernment, la expected to begin within two month*. It will be directed by Col. H. K. Rethers, U. H. A., assisted by other officers from the American army, It wa* learned today A number of tech nical worker* are coming from the United Htatea to direct the French civilian laborera who will be em ployed on the ta*k of diainterrlng and ahlpplng the bedlea. The work will take eome time, but It la ex pected that It will be completed within 1020. Baa* Parte PI rat. On account of the ahortage of coal and lack of train*, the tlrat bodlea exhumed will be those at the baae port* of Bordeaux. Brest, and 8t. Na ealre I.ater truck* will be sent from the United State* to carry t^io bodlea of the heroea who died In the Ar gonne and St. Mihlel offenalves and who were buried outside of tho bat tle sone near the base hospitals of Neufchateau. DIJon. and t'haumont. The area covered by the work will be divided Into sections with an army officer in charge of the workers in each xone. The bodies will first be place*! In hermetically sealed caskets and than the caakets will be put In wooden boxes. The coffins will be sent to storehouses In the nearest port to await shipment. The most careful arrangement* have been made for checking the bodies so that there will be no mis take in Identity. Colonel Rethers, who la head of the graves registration service, said he had no knowledge of rumors that several wealxhy Americana had al ready surreptitiously removed the bodies of eons and shipped them to America. He admitted, however, that It would be possible to steal bodies at night In lonely places and then re fill the gravca. DUrrlalutlea. The American military authorities expect a flood of Americans anions the 1920 tourists begging that their relatives, who fell In France, be re - moved first and be given preference In .shipment. There win be no dls . crimination. Colonel Itethers tsald. j Wealthy famlliea who are able to come to France to make a request for preference In person will get no | favors, he added. | Hugh Wallace, the United States ambassador, has an appointment with Stephen Plchon, the French forelrn minister, for another series of -og ferences this week to continue the negotiations for the removal of thn American dead burled In the groat military cemeteries within the battle field and army tones in France. It Is unlikely that there will be amy quick action In this respect owing to transportation difficulties.
