eat nothing but toast, fruit and
hot water. Every thing else

Swift & Company
Publicity
At a recent hearing of the Federal Trade Commission there |
was introduced correspondence taken from the private files of |
Swift & Company, which showed that the-Company had been con- I
| sidering for some time an educational advertising campaign. f
I The need for this publicity has been apparent to us for sev- 1
I eral years. The gross misrepresentation to which we have |
I recently been subjected has convinced us that we should no longer I
H delay in putting before the public the basic facts of our business, |
I relying on the fair-mindedness of the American people. |
I The feeling against the American packer is based largely on 1
I the belief that the income and well-being of the producer and 1
I consumer are adversely affected by the packers' operations, ffi
I resulting in unreasonably large profits. < I
I Swift & Company’s net profit is reasonable, and represents 1
I an insignificant factor in the cost of living. |
I For the fiscal year 1917 the total sales and net profit of Swift |
I & Company were as follows: , W
I Silei |
I $875,000,000. fIHHHHHHHBHHHHfIH
I Profits _
I $34,650,000. ■
I This is equivalent to a $3,465. profit on a business of $87,500. |j
H y/i If Swift fle Company had made no profit at all, the cattle raiser |
■ would have received only one-eighth of a cent per pound more for his H
H cattle, or the consumer would have saved only one-quarter of a cent per (M
I pound on dressed beef. Bl
