The high price of meat causes the
people to be very sympathetic with
any criticism of the big packing firms.
Decent meat is getting out of reach
of the poorer class of people in the
cities, and even those in better cir

burden. Of course, plans are being
advanced to "relieve" -the situation,
one of them being government con control
trol control of the meat industry.:' Before we
take over any more industries, we
had : better take notice of what gov government
ernment government control of railroads and tele telegraph'
graph' telegraph' lines has done to us. It has
raised prices and lowered service. The
United States would have been in a
bad fix when it went into the war
without' the large and scientifically
organized meat industry. It could not,
in fact, have 'fed its army and navy.
And while you are criticising the big
profits the packers make, just remem remember

full share in paying taxes. If, for in instance,

men; who are making a profit of a
thousand apiece. That seems like a
