The Farmer Receives More Than Fire Thousand Dollars a Minute From Swift & Company This amount is paid to the fanner for live stock, by Swift & Company alone, during the trading hours of every business day. All this money is paid to the farmer through the open market in competition with large and small packers, shippers, speculators and dealers. The farmer, feeder, or shipper receives every cent of this money ($300,000 an hour, nearly $2,000,000 a day, $11,500,000 a week) in cash, on the spot, as soon as the stock he has just sold is weighed up. Some of the money paid to the farmer dur ing a single day comes back to the company in a month from sale of products; much does not come back for sixty or ninety days or more. But the next day Swift & Company, to meet the demands made by its customers, must pay out another $2,000,000 or so, and at the present high price levels keeps over $250,000,000 continuously tied up in goods on the way to market and in bills owed to the company. This gives an idea of the volume of the Swift & Company business and the requirements of financing it. Oily by doing a large business can this company turn live stock into meat and by-products at the lowest possible cost prevent waste, operate refrigerator cars, distribute to retailers in all parts' of the country and be recompensed with a profit of only a fraction of a cent a pound a profit too small to have any noticeable efiecton theprice of meat or live stock. s i Swift & Company, U.S. A. ' Mr. A. B. Hancock, of Paris, re ceived the .following letter from Mr. Edward W. Hines, Chairman of the Kentucky Council of Defense, in re gard to the Red Cross membership drive, which will begin on December 16 and continue through the week to December 23: "You are requested to lend the weight of your organization and as sist in all ways in the Red Cress Membership Drive, which will take place December 16-23, inclusive. "A HEART AND A DOLLAR is all that is needed. Those who have the the first will find the latter. Those who have the latter must find The first. This is not a campaign for money, but for mepabership. The, need for our support of all Americans in uniform was -never greater than now. The boys have done their work. Many of them lie wounded in the hospitals across the sea. Many of them are returning to this country wounded and sick and must be nur tured and cared for. Our Allies have borne the brunt of the battles for freedom. Many of them are sick and starving. Wprld liberty has placed a new and sacred obligation upon the American people. This obligation can be met in part through membership in the Red Cross. We also owe an ob ligation to our people at hopne who have suffered and are still suffering so greatly from the influenza epi demic, and this obligation can also be met in part through membership in the Red Cross, as that organiza tion ministers not only to our soldiers and to the sick and starving in the countries of our allies, but to the suf fering at home. "The co-operation of your Council of Defense with the manager of the Red Cross Campaign in your 'county will help bring these obligations to the attention of every resident. "KY.
