Swift & Company President
Protests Against Charges
Louis F. Swift, president, Swift
& Co. protests on recent charges
made against that firm,
charges made against that firm.
"Swift & Co. protests against cer
tain unwarranted statements in the
report issued by the Federal Trade
commission on war profits. In them,
they give the public a false impres
sion regarding the profits and the
conduct of the packing business.
"Swift and Company can justify its
profits as not only reasonable, but
necessary for efficient conduct of the
business, to finance large inventories
at high prices and to expand facilities
at increasing costs.
"The report states that the five
large packers have a monopoly of the
meat industry and manipulate the
market without regard to law. This
is a serious charge unsupported by
facts. Swift and Company, in compe
tition with all other packers, has no
control, over prices and the policy of
the company is to obey the law.
"Packers' profits are unjustly aggra
vated by the statement that four large
packers made a profit of $140,000,000
during the three war years, as against
and average annual profit of $19,000,
C00 for the three years before the war.
This compares a three-year profit with
one-year-profit and the $19,000,000
should have been $57,000,000 to make
the comparison just."
Tops Market With 1 8 Steers
Averaging 1,323 Pounds Each
William Oeltjen of Creston, Neb.,
topped the South Side cattle market
Tuesday with a prime load of 18
Hereford steers that averaged 1,323

Omaha market. They were part of a
drove of 106 feeders purchased by Mr.
Oeltjen on this market last Decem
ber. At that time they averaged 728
pounds and were bought for $10.50
per 100 pounds.
Charles L.' Corkle of Tilden, Neb.,
topped market for yearling steers
with a load of fancy whitefaces that
were' 6old by Melady Bros' Com
mission company to a local packer
for $17.35 per 100 pounds. Mr. Cor
kle is One of the best known breed s
of fancy cattle in the state. The
6teers marketed Tuesday morning'
