Capture of "Lieutenant-Commander
X" Kxpected) to Lead to Appre
hension of Other Members
of Alleged Combine.
NEW YORK, May 1. Federal au
thorttles arrested her today a German
naval Lieutenant-Commander, who la
said to be tha head of enemy props
ganda In America, having been dele
gated to this work by Count von Bern
storff when the former German Am
bassador left this country. Pending
other expected arrests, the prisoner's
name waa wtihheld.
Th arrest of th German naval of
ficer, who has thus far figured In the
records of the Federal authorities as
"Lieutenant-Commander X," follows the
apprehension on Saturday of Marine
D'Vlctorlca, alleged to have been on
of his most valuable lieutenants.
Tha woman, who Is detained at Bel-
levn Hospital, where she was taken
after her arrest, suffering from th ef
fects of a narcotic, confessed that ah
had received about 40,000 from the
German naval officer since her arrival
her in January, 1917, Federal authori
ties assert. -
She denied the charge that she used
th money in furthering the dlssemln
atlon of Pro-German propaganda here
and said she spent it for living expenses
at hotels.
She claimed that she owns a large
estate In Chile and that the money she
received represented interest on "her
properties, which had been managed by
the German. .
"Lieutenant-Commander X" Is said to
have come to the United States In De
cember, 191C. four months before the
United States entered the war and
stopped at a hotel, where he associated
with Count von Bernstorff and other
leading Germans.
He is said to have been the paymas
ter of German agents after the depart
ure of Von Bernstorff and to have di
rected to a large extent German propa
ganda in this country. He is also re
ported to have directed German activi
ties in Brazil and other South Ameri
can countries.

were named as delegates from the or

ference of the League to Enforce Peace,
which will be held in Philadelphia from
May 16 to 18. Both have accepted the
mission and will attend the conference.
The assembly at Philadelphia waa
called by ex-President Taft, for the
consideration of matters vital to Amer
ica's progress in the war., The objec
tive of the League to Enforce Peace is
found in Its determined stand for an
nnrelenting war with Germany until
a victory that will insure lasting; peace
Is attained.

A Business Should be
as Big as Its Job
If bigness is of benefit to the public it
should be commended..
The size of a business depends upon the needs which that
business is called upon to serve. A business should be as big;
as its job. You do not drive tacks with a pile-driver or piles
with a tack-hammer.
Swift & Company's growth has been the natural and
inevitable result of national and international needs.
Large-scale production and distribution are necessary
to convert the live stock of the West into meat and by-products,
and to distribute them over long distances to the
consuming centers of the East and abroad.
Only an organization like that of Swift & Company, with its
many packing plants, hundreds of distributing houses, and thou
sands of refrigerator cars, would have been able to handle the
varying seasonal supplies of live stock, and meet the present
war emergency by supplying, without interruption:
First The U. S. soldiers and the Allies in Europe by shipping as
much as 800 carload of meat products in a single week !
Second The cantonments in the United States.
Third The retailers upon whom the American public depends
for its daily supply of meat.
But many people ask Do producers and consumers pay
too much for the complex service rendered ?
Everyone, we believe, concedes the efficiency of the Swift
& Company organization in performing a big job in a big way
at ta minimum of expense.
Swift & Company's total profit in 1917 was less than 4
cents on each dollar of sales of meat and by-products. Elim
ination of this profit would have had practically no effect on
live stock and meat prices.
Do you believe that this service can be rendered for less
by any other conceivable method of organization or operation?
These questions and others are answered fully and
frankly in the Swift & Company 1918 Year
