OPPONENTS IN BITTER CONTROVERSY
The rcnomlnatlon of John Skclton Williams, of Virginia, to be
Comptroller of the Currency for .mother five years after a Democratic
Senate refused to confirm his nomination at the last session fore
shadows a continuance of the fight against Williams' confirmation.
Representative Mcl'addcn, of Pennsylvania, a member of the Hanking
nnd Currrncy Committee, is leading the House opposition to continu
mice of the Comptroller's office, lie is author of a bill to vest the
function of the office in the Federal Reserve Hoard, asserting that
Williams' conduct In office has demonstrated the danger to the country
lies in the nuuse of large powers granted to Hulivldii.il
when those officers nre inclined to be autocratic,
FSenr.lc will again refine to confirm Williams.

finite details, requiring infinito
Experienced men must know
livestock buying with a knowl
edge of weight, price, tho amount
and quality of meat the live
animals will yield.
Each manufacturing operation must
bo done with expert skill and scientific
precision. A highly perishable product
must be handled with speed and enro
to avoid loss.
Chemists, engineers, nccountants,
and other specialists are required to
take care of our intricate problems.
Alert wisdom and judgment must
bo used in getting stocks of goods into
the open channels of demand through
our four hundred branch houses.
Branch house organizations must
show activity and energy to sell nt the
market in tho face of acute competi
tion from other large packers, and
hundreds of small ones.
All these requirements of intelligence,
loyalty, devotion to the task, are met
in tho personnel of Swift & Company.
Yet the profit is only a fraction of a cent
per pound with costs at minimum.
How can the workings of this deli

THE HAPPY MEDIUM
No business was over built up in a locality like ours by depending upon the transient trade. No stor6 can
survive here that expects to do business with a customer but once.
Values must bo true to command tho return customer. If we catered to the high priced trade this store
would have gone with the first that went. If we sold only cheap goods we would havo lasted about one year.
The men of this locality know that what we have to sell to them is in every way dependable, not too high
and not too cheap, just the happy medium.
