Now two-thirds of the consuming centers, with millions of people, are one to two thousand miles away from the principal live-stock produc , ing sections, which are sparsely settled. The American meat packing industry of today is the development of the best way to perform a national service. The function of providing meat had to de velop accordingly. Those men who first grasp ed the elements of the changing problem created the best facilities to meet it—large packing . plants and branch houses at strategic points, , refrigerating equipment (including cars), car routes, trained organization, profitable outlets for former waste which became the nat ural, inevitable channels for the vast flow of meat across the country. If there were a better way to perform this necessary service, American ingenuity and enterprise would have discovered it, and others would now be using it During 1918, Swift & Company has earned a profit on meats (and meat by-products) of less than 2 >2 cents per dollar of sales—too small a profit to have any appreciable effect on prices. jwk Swift & Company, I JMm*. u. s. a. t f Madmmihr I Join the I fed Goss __ I I BTAEKVILLB. MISSISSIPPI, FRIDAY, DECEMBER 27. 1918 HUNGER DRAWS THE MAP ...... 0 A food map of Europe today shows not a single country in which the fu ture does not hold threat of serious difficulties and only a small part which is not rapidly approaching the famine point. With the exception of the Ukraine only those countries which have maintained marine commerce have sufficient food supplies to meet actual needs until next harvest, ami even in the Ukraine, With stores- accu mulated on the farms, there Is famine In the large centers of population. Belgium and northern France, as well as Serbia, appear on the hunger map distinct from the rest of Eurepe because they stand In a different rela tion from the other nations to the peo ple of the United States. America has for four years maintained the small war rations of Belgium and northern France and is already making special efforts to care for their increased after-the-war needs, which, with those of Serbia, must be included in this plan, are urgent in the extreme and must have Immediate relief. The gratitude the Belgian nation for the help America has extended to her during the war constitutes the strongest appeal tor ns to continue onr work there.
