(BITS ?
The Federal Trade Commission in its recent report on
war profits, stated that the five large meat packers have
been profiteering and that they have a monopoly of the
market.
These conclusions, if fair and just, are matters of serious
concern not only to those engaged in the meat packing
business but to every other citizen of our country.
The figures given on profits are misleading and the
statement that the packers have a monopoly is unsup
ported by the facts.
The packers mentioned in the report stand ready to
prove their profits reasonable and necessary.
The meat business is one of the largest American indus
tries. Any citizen who would familiarize himself with
its details must be prepared for large totals.
The report states that the aggregate profits of four
large packers were 140,000,000 for the three war years.
This sum is compared with 19,000,000 as the average
annual profit for the three years before the war, making
it appear that the war profit was 121,000,000 greater
than the pre-war profit.
This compares a three-year profit with a one-year profit
a manifestly unfair method of comparison. It is not
only misleading, but the Federal Trade Commission
apparently has made a mistake in the figres themselves.
The aggregate three-year profit of 140,000,000 was
earned on sales of over four and a half billion dollars. It
means about three cents on each dollar of sales or a
mere fraction of a cent per pound of product.
Packers' profits are a negligible factor in prices of live
stock and meats. No other large business is conducted
upon such small margins of profit..
Furthermore and this is very important only a small
portion of this profit has been paid in dividends. The
balance has been put back into the businesses. It had
to be, as you realize when you consider the problems the
packers have had to solve and solve quickly during
these warv years.
To conduct this business in war times, with higher costs
and the necessity of paying two or three times the for
mer priecs for live stock, has required the use of two or
three times the ordinary amount of working capital.
The additional profit makes only a fair return on this,
and as has been stated, the larger portion of the profits
earned has been used to finance huge stocks of goods
to provide additions and improvements made neces
sary by the enormous demands of our army and navy
and the allies. .
If you are a business man you will appreciate the signi
ficance of these' facts. If you are unacquainted with
business, talk this matter over with some business
acquaintance with your banker, say and ask him to
compare profits of the packing industry with I those ol;
any other large industry at the present time.
No evidence is offered by the Federal Trade Commis
sion in support of the statement that the large packers
have a monopoly. The Commission's own report shows
the large number and importance; of other packers. ' i
The packers mentioned in the statement stand ready to
prove to any fair minded person that they are in keen
competition with each other, and they have no power to
manipulate prices.
If this were not true they would not dare to make this,
positive statement.
Furthermore, government figures show that the five,
large packers mentioned in the report account for only
about one-third of the business of the country.
They wish it were possible to interest you in th: details
of their business. Of how, for instance, they can sell
dressed beef for less than the cost of the live animal,
owing to utilization of by-products, arid of the wonder
ful story of the methods of distribution throughout this
broad land, as well as in other countries.
The five packers mentioned feel justified in co-operat-
ing with each other to the extent of together presenting
this public statement.
They have been able to do a big job for your govern
ment in its time of need; they have met all war time de
mands promptly and completely and they are willing to
trust their case to the fair-mindedness of the American
people with the facts before them.

TOO WEAK TO WORK
Vermont Woman Tells How She Re
gained Her Health.
Alburgr, Vt. "I "was run-down, no
appetite, and too weak to do my
housework medicines did not seem
to help me until I tried VInol I soon
noticed an improvement, and am now
well, strong-, and able to do my work."
Lillian Babba.
The reason VInol was so successful
in Miss Babba's case, is because it con
tains beef, and cod liver peptones.
Iron and manganese peptonate3 and
glycerophosphates, the very elements
needed to build up a weakened, run
down system, make rich, red blood
and create strength. Adr.
