Everything that falsely en­
courages unrest also encourages
bolshevism.
Misunderstanding of Amer­
ican industrial organization, and
of its benefits to mankind, leads
to unrest, dissatisfaction, and
radicalism.
For example, the Federal
Trade Commission tells the pub­
lic that the large packers had an
agreed price for lard substitute
(made of cotton-seed oil)
It reproduces letters taken from
the files of one of the packers,
showing that such agreed price
existed.
But it failed to mention that
the agreed price was deter­
mined at the request o f and in
co-operation with the Food
Administration!
Even the Department of Jus­
tice, in its unjust attempt to
create prejudice against the
packers, has made public these
same letters, with no explanation.
How long must this kind of
misrepresentation continue? In
so far as it is believed, it not
only breeds discontent, but re­
sults in injustice to our industry.
