The Company Will Pension Every
Employe in Their Empoly.
Two million dollars was the gift
made by Swift Company to their
employes today. Announcement ol
the accumulation of this sum during
the past six years in the form of a
pension fund occasioned much grati
fication to workers in the plants and
i ranch houses in all cities where it
was made simultaneously. It is esti
mated that move than 30,000 men am
women are eligible, in time, to come
under the provisions of the fum
which becomes active August 1.
One of the striking features op the
plan as outlined is that the employes
do not contribute to the fund, the com
pany furnishing absolutely all mone
needed to pay pensions. In this con
nection it is expected that Swift &
Conr-anv will he called upon to pay
$400,000 a year in addition to the in

"Swift & Company have had a pen
sion plan under consideration for over
six years and during that time have
accumulated for the purpose a fund
of two million dollars." said Louis
F. Swift, president of the company
today. '"In that time we have studied
dozens of pension plans in effect in
other organizations, both contributory
and non-contributory and we believe
that we have selected the best points
of these and have added a number of
good features that are distinctive. We
have made it possible for every man
and woman in our employ to provide
for his or .her old age simply by giv
ing efficient work and continuous scr
vice. It has been the aim of Swift &
Company to tie its employes to itself
in manv wavs. We have worked to
that end for years because we believe
that our employes become more valu
able to us with every j-ear of their
continued service. The pension plan

HITCHING POSTS FROM
FOURTH TO FIFTH STREET
from Friday's Daily.
The city is busy grading Pearl
street from Fourth to Fifth and put
ting it in shape for the installing of
fifty new hitching posts that can be
used by the farmers for the purpose
of tying their teams when coming to
the city for the day. This makes an
ideal place for the hitching racks as
it takes them off of the main street
of the city and does away with a
great deal of dirt and annoyance to
the owners of the teams and at same
time is within easy distance of the
business portion of the city. The fix
ing of the street and the widening of
the thoroughfare will make it a much
better place to hitch the horses than
any that has ever been suggested be
