Phons, 1003 jam&i i 1 I to Itie American People There is no foundation for the alleged violations of law attributed to our Com pany by agents of the Federal Trade Commission and I want to say emphatic ally that Swift & Company is not a party to any conspiracy to defraud the Govern ment Nor has Swift & Company been guilty of improperly storing foods or of making false entries or reports. Conferences of packers, where prices have been discussed, have been held at the urgent request and in the presence of representatives of either the Food Administration or the Council of National Defense. And yet the packers have been accused of committing a felony by acting in collusion on Government bids! We have done our best, with other packers, large and small, to comply with the directions of the United States Food Administration in all particulars, including the furnishing of food supplies for the U. S. Army and Navy and the Allies, now be ing handled through the Food Adminis tration. We will continue totfoour utrr.ott.un der Government direction, to increase our production r.nd assist tha Food Adminis tration. Ve consider that the opportunity to co-operate whole-heartedly and to our fullest powers with this branch of the Government is our plain and most press ing duty. The Trade Commission Attorney has, by false inference and misplaced empha sis, given to disconnected portions of the correspondence taken from our private files and read into the Record, a falsa and sinister meaning with the plain purpose of creating antagonistic public opinion. The services of the packers of the United States are most urgently needed, and I regret exceedingly that we should at this time have to spend our efforts in defending ourselves against unfounded, unproved, and unfair assertions such as are being daily made public. 7.vt President ' Swift & Company, U.S. A.
