Swift & Company
Has Not "Jest Crowed"
Swift & Company, in fifty years of well
ordered growth, has become one of the
great national services because it has
learned to do something for the American
people which they needed to have done
for them, in thè way in which they
preferred to have it done.
It has met each successive demand, in
the changing conditions of national life,
by getting good meat to increasing mil
lions effectively, efficiently, economically,
and expeditiously.
The Swift & Company packing plants,
refrigerator cam, car routes, branch
houses, organization, and personnel of
today are the practical solutions, born of
practical expet ience, to the food problems
of half a century.
Because of all these elements working in
correlation and unison, Swift & Company
is able to supply more and better meat to
more people than would have been pos
sible otherwise, at a net profit per pound of
meat so low (a fraction of a cent) that the
consumer price is practically unaffected.
Strip away any portion of this vast,
smooth-running human machine, and you
make a large part of the meat supply
uncertain, lose ti|e benefit of half a century
of fruitful experience, and scatter the
intelligent energies of men who have %
devoted a life work toward meeting the
needs of a nation in one vital field.

Very little has been heard of the war
work done by the churches, apart from
the part they have taken in the Y. M.
C. A. and relief work. Yet without de
tracting from their gifts to other funds,
church members are supporting many
auxiliary efforts. If a church values its
own message it will want to minister to
the boy at the front no less than at home,
and this has been done.
The following letter addressed in par
ticular to members of the Episcopal
church is of general interest in showing
the attitude of one church, at same time
it illustrates that of many others:
The following letter received by
Rev. W. H. Bridge, rector of St.
Mark church, is self-explanatory:
"May I call your attention to a
very important matter? The United
Campaign for the Welfare of the
Soldiers and Sailors begins November
11. It includes, as you know, among
its seven objects the Y. M. C. A., the
National Catholic War Council and
the Jewish Welfare Board. We should
urge our people as Christian citizens
and patriots to give this campaign
hearty and generous support, and
such support should be unequivocal
and strong.
"At the same time it is due to the
people of our church to be made aware
of the fact that their own church is

we have, With approval of the com

through the St. Andrew's Brother

Work on a Y. M. C. A. building for

The University of Idaho will supply the
site, heat and light.
The building will lie placed between
the gymnasium and Lewis Court and will
face east. It will he finished in
bungalow style, stained brown and be
one and a half stories high.
"This will be no V, M. C. A. hut.

The building will contain a large andi

lobby, lounging rooms, billiard and pool
rooms and secretary's office and five
smaller committee rooms. The Y. M.
C. A. will furnish the necessary equip

to the furniture if they choose.
Plans for the building were drawn by
Joshua Vogel, Y. M. C. A. architect,
Mr. Vogel has built huts for the soldiers
in many parts of the world. He has re
cently returned from work for the
armies operating in Palestine.
The materials will receive priority in

Thos. Stnrdevant and N. Brocke
secured 84 pounds of sugar substitute in
the loft of the Fraternal Temple building
last week. For the past three years
there has been a swarm of wild bees in
the loft of the building and during all
this time these busy little workers nave
béén putting away their surplus products
so that two enterprising Kendrick citi
zens could secure it at the logical mo
ment to help win the war. To get the
honey, however, it was necessary to
smoke out the bees with sulphur and
this caused their untimely death.
It is said that wild bees from a strong
swarm will rob the smaller hives of tame
bees and thus the tame bees will die
during the winter of starvation, so that
the death of this swarm could not be
considered a calamity from a conserva
tion standpoint. It was also thought
best to extinguish this little colony in
order to guard against a contingency
that might arise during the solemn and
mysterious rites of conferring degrees
in the various local lodges.
During the winter when the custodian
of the building, N. Brocke, started a fire
preparatory to a lodge meeting, the
warmth brought to life the hibernating
little insects and they had a habit of
dropping down through the ventilators
of the ceiling, probably for no other
purpose than to start their sluggish
blood to circulating and to bask in the
warmth of the room. Eaves-droppers,
however, are not allowed within the
gates of the various secret orders so
that it was impossible to tile the lodge
properly in their presence Then, too.
't was feared that during the solemnity
of conferring some of the degrees, the
candidate and a bee might form a con
