It breaks oppression's chain: A thousand freemen rally WASHINGTON", Nov. U Peace today threw into conference be tween congressional leaders and treasury officials the question of whether the tax burden plar.ned In the pending revenue hill can be lightened, in view of prospective reduction of expenditures. Sen. Simmons, chairman of the senate finance committee; Chair man Kitchln of the house ways and means committee, and Secretary McAdoo discussed the problem but reached no conclusion. Mr. McAdoo said he would un dertake an immediate survey of the government's tentative plans for re turn of the army from abroad, for curtailing- war orders and other phases of war to peace conversion, and make recommendations within a few days". The uncertainty of future gov ernment financial needs, and the ur gent need of pushing the revenue legislation to completion at an early date, constitute the principal rea sons prompting many congressional leaders, both democrats and repub licans, today to advocate that the bill not be changed to reduce the revenue to any great extent. Al ready the senate has revised it t-o that the income is estimated at about SG, 200,000 instead of the eight billions provided by the house draft Treasury officials also point ed out that a large inflow of taxes will reduce the volume of war bonds which must be floated in the spring. Demand for immediate steps to cut down expenditures now is com ing strongly from both parties hi congress. Senators Borah and Smoot, republicans.

Dotted Swiss, Dimities, Organdies, India Linons are only trifles in prices, but priceless when made into dainty aprons, with pretty lace edge at only 5c yard.

Why Compare Beef and Coal Profits? Swift & Company has frequently stated that its profit on beef averages only one-fourth of a cent a pound, and hence has practically no effect cn the price. Comparison has, been made by the Federal Trade Commission of this profit with the profit on coal, and it has pointed out that anthracite coal operators are content with a profit of 25 cents a ton, whereas the beef profit of one-fourth of a cent a pound means a profit of $5.00 a ton. The comparison does not point out that anthracite coal at the seaboard is worth at wholesale about $7.00 a ton, whereas a ton of beef of fair quality is worth about $400.00 wholesale. To carry the comparison further, the 25 cent profit on coal is 32 per cent of the $7.00 value. The $5.00 profit on beef is only 1 per cent of the $400.00 value. The profit has little effect on price in either case, but has less effect on the price of beef than on the price of coal. Coal may be stored in the open air indefinitely; beef must be kept in expensive coolers because it is highly perishable and must be refrigerated. Coal is handled by the carload or ton; beef is delivered to retailers by the pound or hundred weight. Methods of handling are vastly different. Coal is handled in open cars; beef must be shipped in refrigerator cars at an even temperature. Fairness to the public, fairness to Swift 6: Company, fairness to the packing industry, demands that these indisputable facts be considered. It is impossible to disprove Swift & Company's statement, that its profits on beef are so small as to have practically no effect on prices. Swift & Company, U. S. A.
