In accordance with the policy of the

convened in Washington a meeting of
Agricultural Advisory Board and the sp
industry to consider the situation in the
The conference lasted for three day
executive committee of the fifty packing
for pork products and with the members
foreign pork purchases.
The conclusions of the conference w
The entire marketing situation has j
so changed since the September joint q
conference as to necessitate an entire
alteration in the plans of price stabi
lization. The current peace talk has
alarmed the holders of corn, and there
has been a price decline of from 25
cents to 40 cents per bushel. The fact
that the accumulations of low priced t
corn in the Argentine and South Afri- c
ca would, upon the advent of peace 1
and liberated shipping, become avail
able to the European market has cre
ated a great deal of apprehension on
the part of corn holders. This decline
has spread fear among swine growers
that a similar reduction in the prices
of hogs would naturally follow. More
over, the bower range of corn prices
would, if incorporated in a 13-to-1 ra
tio, obviously result in a continuously
falling price for live hogs. In view
of these changed conditions many
swine producers anticipated lower
prices and as a result rushed their
hogs to market in large numbers, and
this overshipment has added to and I
aggravated the decline.
The information of the Department I
of Agriculture indicates that the sup
ply of hogs has increased about 8 per
cent., while the highest unoflicial esti
mate does not exceed 15 per cent. in
creased production over last year. On
the other hand, the arrival of hogs
during the last three weeks in the
seven great markets has been 27 per
cent. more than last year, during the
corresponding period, demonstrating
the unusually heavy marketing of the
available supply. In the face of the
excessive receipts some packers have
not maintained the price agreed last
month. On the other hand, many
of the packers have paid over the
price offered to them in an endeavor
td maintain the agreed price. The re
sult in any event has been a failure
to maintain the October price basis
determined upon at the September con
ferenlce and undertaken by the pack
ers. Anothler factor contribluting to
tile break in prices during tile month
hlas been thle influenza epidemlic; it
has sharply curtailed consumpnltion of
por-k pr-oducts and temporarily deC
creasedl the labor- staff of the packers
about 25 p~er cent.
Tile exports of 13i0.000,000) Iountds
of por1k products for October com
pared with ab~out 52,000.000 pounds
in October a year ago, anti the

Administration for Novembier, almount
to 170,000,000 pounds(1 as contrast
ed with the lesse- exports of

inlcreasedi demands of tile allies are
continuing, and are in thlemselves
proof of thea necessity for tile tar-ge
production for whlich tile Food Adnmin
Istration asked. Th'ie increase in ex
p~ort demands appears to be amply
suilcient to take up tihe increase in

The ability of the packers to carry
out this arrangement will depend on
there being a normal marketing of
hogs based upon the proportionate in
crease over the receipts of last year.
The increase in production appears to
bei a maximumn of about 15 per cent.
and we can handle such an increase.
If the producers of hogs should, as
they have in the past few weeks, pre
maturely market hogs in such Increas
ing numbers over the above it is en
