RED CLOUD, NEBRASKA, CHIEF
Why Compare Beef and
Swift & Company has frequently stated
that its profit on beef averages only one
fourth of a cent a pound, and hence has
practically no effect on the price.
Comparison has been made by the Federal
Trade Commission of this profit with the
profit on coal, and it has pointed out that
anthracite coal operators are content with
a profit of 25 cents a ton, whereas the beef
profit of one-fourth of a cent a pound means
a profit of $5.00 a ton.
The comparison does not point out foiat
anthracite coal at the seaboard is worth at
wholesale about $7.00 a ton, whereas a ton
of beef of fair quality is worth about
To carry the comparison further, the 25
cent profit on coal is 3 per cent of the
The $5.00 profit on beef is only 1 per
cent of the $400.00 value.
The profit has little effect on price in either case,
but has less effect on the price of beef than on the
price of coaL
Coal may be stored in the open air indefinitely;
1F5f must be kept in expensive cookrs because it is
highly perishable and must be refrigerated.
Coal is handled by the carload or ton; beef is deliv
ered to retailers by the pound or hundred weight.
Methods of handling are vastly different. Coal is
handled in open cars; beef mutt be shipped in
refrigerator cars at an even temperature.
Fairness to the public, fairness to Swift &
Company, fairness to the packing industry, demands
that these indisputable facts be considered. It is
Impossible to disprove Swift & Company's state
ment, that its profits on beef are so small as to have
practically tio effect on prices.

Dr. Henry N. MncCrnckcn, the
prenldent of VnsRor college, has been
devoting himself to tho upbuilding of
the Junior Bed Cross, which has grown,
within a yenr, from nothing to a
membership of over 8.W0.000. Un
der the Inspiration of Ills leadership,
with war work ns n motive, the accom
plishment of school children all over
the country has been ninnzltiK. They
have turned out garments for soldiers
and refugees quilts, comforters, rugs,
knitted clothing, furniture, toys. They
hnvo guttiered thousands of dollars
worth of salvage, In tin cans and tin
foil, and garnered vegetables contrib
uted for the maintenance of markets.
In fact, Doctor MocCrncken says : "The
Junior Red Cross today finds Itself en
gaged In doing almost as many things
as there are mlloH between the Atlan
tic and tho Pacific, hut always with
one object national service."
"Notional Servlco" what an enno
bling Idea to constantly cultivate In
tho minds of the young I For this
one reason alone every parent should
do more than encourage the nctlvltles
of the Junior Red CroRS. The Idea of
service takes patriotism for granted,
and Instills Its best part all the tlmo
In the minds of children. But the
work the bpIiooI children have done
has been beneficial In other ways, and
moreover the young people are Intense
ly Interested by It. Thoughtful and
practical men complain that courses of
study In the public schools are too de
tached from the everyday business of
thing. Flore Is where tho work c" tho
Junior Red Cross will help out. The
sewing, knitting, cooking, rug-mnklng,
toy nnd furniture making arc all as
practical ob brushing 'one's teeth. Tho
children learn that their work must bo

arise. This la nartlculsrly true with el
