T. 0 ANDERSON. SENATOR KENYON’S CONTRAST ING VIEW Ol Just what is the purpose of the Kenyon bill now in hearing at Wash ington would be hard to deduce from Senator Kenyon’s own statements. In ! the bill itself the purpose is set forth ! as follows: “To stimulate the pro duction, sale, and distribution of live ' stock and live stock products, and for other purposes.” This stimulation of live stock production may he well taken as a bid to the consumer to hope for lower meat prices. But he has a different thought to present to producers. In a letter ad dressed recently to the Wallace Fann er he says: “I do not believe myself that the situation as to restricted consumption is going to be changed very much, and there will be the neces sity of less production.” Of course loss production would supposedly mean higher prices for live stock, but also higher prices for meat. Are either the general public or the farmer going to be fooled by this method of playing up the one against the other? It is not likely. Farmers and consumers are both coming to the realization that hampering the pack ers is not going to bring higher prices for live stock nor lower prices for meat, but quite the opposite. » -o tSHHOWN I.ODP.E NO, 581 E. & A.
