What They Are Doing
There is no foundation for the alleged
violations of law attributed to our Com
pany by agents of the Federal Trade
Commission and I want to say emphatic
ally that Swift & Company is not a party to
any conspiracy to defraud the Govern
ment. Nor hac Swift & Company been
guilty of improperly storing foods or of
making falso entries or reports.
Conferences of packers, where prices
have been discussed, have been held at
the urgent request and in the presence
of representatives of cither the Food
Administration or the Council of National
Defense. And yet the packers have been
accused of committing a felony by acting
in collusion on Government bids I
Wc have done our beat, with other
packers, large and small, to comply with
the directions of the United States Food
Administration in (til particulars, including
the furnishing of food supplies for the U. S.
Army and Navy and the Allies, now be.
ing handled through the Food Adminis
tration. We will continue to do our utmoit,un-
der Government direction, to increase our
production and assist the Food Adminis
tration. We consider that the opportunity
to co-operate whole-heartedly and to our
fullest powers with this branch of tho
Government is our plain and most press
The Trade Comnmiion Attorney has,
by false inference and misplaced empha
sis, given to disconnected portions of tho
correspondence taken from our private
files and read into the Record, a false and
sinister meaning with the plain purpose
of creating antagonistic public opinion.
The services of the packers of the
United States are most urgently needed,
and I regret exceedingly that we should at
this time have to spend our efforts in
defending ourselves against unfounded,
unproved, and unfair assertions such as
are being daily made public.

There are now 125,000
ese aborers n the war zone
Europe. This is certain to have
a great influence upon the fu
ture evangelization of China
for eood or for evil, in nronor
tion as they are reached by de
i?eneratinc forces or come un
der the power of tho Gospel mes
sairc. One article in the new
constitution of Mexico provides
that none but native horn Mexi
cans may exercise the functions
of the ministry. This need not
hinder evangelical work, but
may prove a powerful stimulus
to the training of native pas
tors by the missions. An auto
