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. In addre$ses In

curtailment of vast government ex

Novelty Silks at $1.95 a Yard, in wondrous plaids and
Wash Satins at $1.50, $2.00, $2.50 Yard, are famous for
their superior quality.
Tub Silks at $1.75 Yard, always popular for waists, also
for men's shirts.
Crepe c!e Chenes at $1.50. $2.00. also suggests practical
gifts made into handkerchiefs, underwear, petticoats, caps.
The Cost of Making Useful Gifts is very slight considering with what great ap
preciation they are received.
A Kimono Laundy Bag made of plain or flowered Serpentine Crepe csts only
39c yard, could also be made of Superba Flannelette for cold mornings. The price
is the same.
Mercerized Poplins are very pretty, fashioned into dresses for little children.
You can make pretty Underwear of Silk and Cotton Crepe de Chine or Fashion
Silk. The cost is only 75c yard.
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.
White Madras will make hubby a tine shirt. The mercerized stripes will give a
pleasing appearance. The cost is only 50c yard.
Many other suggestions are also in great evidence in the fabric section. How
ever, we advise early selections. It is time now to commence making things in

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
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.
