An International Service Built
on Tiny Profits Per Pound
; 1 Some industries fiavd been able to get in
step with war demands more quickly , than
j.o&eis.;. ' ; ; . ....
In many cases mighty plants have sprung
ap-but, at aprodigious cost. , ! ,
The packing industry was able to adapt
Itself to unheard of demands more quickly,
perhaps, than any other industry. And this
was because the vast equipment of packing
plants, refrigerator cars, branch houses, etc.,
had been gradually developed to its present
state of efficiency, so that in the crucial hour
it became a mighty international system for
war" service. ' '
And how had this development taken place?
Not by making vast inroads into the capi
tal wealth of the country, bu41argely by using,
from year to year, a portion of the profits, to
provide for expansion.
Swift ft Company's profits have always been so
tiny, compared with sales, that they have had practic
ally no effect on the price of meat (amounting to only
fraction of a cent per pound).
And yet the owners of the business have been
content with reasonable returns on their capital, and
have been able, year after year, to put part of the
profits back into the business to provide for its
These fraction of tiny profits have been repaid to
to the public many fold in the form of better service,
and better and cheaper meat, and made it possible for
Swift & Company to meet, undaunted, the sudden
cry for meat for overseas.
Could any other method of financing a vital
industry involve less hardship to the people of the
country ? Could there be m better instance of trotf
"pTOrrNsnaring'' than this return in added usefulness
and in national preparedness ?
