THE PENSACOLA' JOURNAL, FRIDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 26, 1919.
Pro at- Packen . Their Number Grossly Exaggerated - The Federal Trade Commission has published a list of some 640 articles said to be sold by the packers. This list is ridiculously padded in order to scare people into the belief that the packers are getting control of the food supply of the nation. For example, the list includes not only "beef sides" and "beef cuts," but also over 60 other items of beef products and by-products. Over 90 articles listed are not sold to the outside trade but are raw materials and supplies, such as brick, cement, eta, used by Swift & Company in carrying on its business. . Glaring duplications appear, such as "sardines" and "canned sardines"; "butterine" and "oleomar garine"; "dried sausages" and "drysausage, " etc. The list includes 37 kinds of sausage; 4 dif ferent kinds or preparations of beef tongue, etc., eta Simmered down, Swift & Company handles in addition to meats and meat by-products, only butter, eggs, cheese, paltry, canned goods, lard substitutes, and to a very small extent, dried and salt fish. And the proportion which we handle of the total supply of any one of these is absurdly small. Do you want to be fooled by such misleading and ridiculous statements of the Trade Commission? Do you want radical legislation based on such absurd evidence? FLORIDA, STATE. FAIR JACKSONVILLE November 22-29 Swift & Company, U. S. A. Pensacola Local Branch, Garden & Tarragona Sts. J.
