THE PENSACOLA' JOURNAL, FRIDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 26, 1919.
. 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

Corpus Christi is most timely and I
am confident it will receive a willing
and liberal response.
However I wish to state that the
Rotary- club did not appoint a com
mittee to receive public subscriptions
for this worthy cause but we simply
received voluntary subscriptions from
our membership at our luncheon, and
asked your representative if your pa
per would not bring to the attention
of the public the great need cf as
sistance, and immediate assistance, for
the storm sufferers and to announce
you would receive subscriptions. You
have started the good work and hope
you can announce through your paper
that you have opened a public budx
scription list. For your information
I attach herewith letter received from
International Rotary from which you
will note funds are to be remitted to
Robert E. Vinson, president, Univer
sity of Texas, Austin, Texas. I am
sure you will agree with me that the
call is urgent and that our generous
hearted citizens will answer with their
financial aid this distress signal f rom
suffering humanity in our sister state.'
