If you didn't It wasn't the fault
of the nation's farmers and meat
This year America's per capita
meat consumption averaged 128
pounds as compared with 124.4 last
year. Total 1938 meat consumption

president of the Institute of Ameri
can Meat Packers:
1 Wholesale prices of most meats
are substantially lower than a year
2 Upswing in meat production.
3 Farm prices of livestock dur
ing recent months have remained at
relatively higher levels than farm
prices of grains, cotton and cotton
seed, fruits, truck crops and dairy
4 Farmers' income from meat
animals in 1938 approximated the
sum of $1,900,000,000,

Here You Are Nineteen-Ttiirty-Nine
TO ALL OUR FRIENDS WHEREVER YOU MAY BE GREETINGS !
We Wish You All a Happy New Year
A year filled with joy and happiness, good health and true friends.
And in addition, we wish you a generous degree of what the world
calls material success counted in terms of dollars and cents. And
fceyond all this we wish you the real success that has been so glibly
termed "The Abundant Life." While money may provide you with
many things, the true Abundant Life must be grounded on a true
fellowship with your fellow man an interest in his welfare as well
as your own. An epitome expressed by Van Dyke, when he said:
"Let me live my life from year to year,
With forward face and unreluctant soul;
Not hastening to, or turning from the goal,
Nor holding back in fear from what the future holds,
But with a whole and happy heart, that pays its toll
To Youth and Age . . . and travels on with cheer.
So let the way be up the hill, or down
O'er rough, o'er smooth, the journey will be joy;
Still seeking what I sought when but a boy:
New friendships, high endeavor and service to my fellow man
My heart will keep the courage of the quest
And trust the road's last turn will be the best"
"To live in a house by the side of the road and be a friend to man ;"
To share with the joys, the griefs, the desires and troubles to do
all possible to banish fears and increase the joy of living all this
will need be a portion of your work and to those who do this and
maintain a faith in and obedience to our Heavenly Father, there
is insured "The Abundant Life." We hope you may approximate it!
We thank YOU for your many kindnesses and cour
tesies to ourselves and to the Journal these many years.
