He declined to tell the price paid for

greatly In ezcss of any previously paid
for property on the peninsula, Th tract
purchased la said to be, from a strategic
standpoint, the key to the. packing-house
and stockyards situation on the penln

'W. will build a plant that will ad
join the rights of way of tha Harrlmaa

convenient to Swift Co. and others.

Th entire tract purchased will b

Is to be accomplished In transporta
