STEADIER HOG MARKETS PLANNED
Hog Producers and Packers Confer With Repre
sentatives of the Food Administration and
Agricultural Department and Adopt
New Plan of Regulation.
In accordance with tlir iollcy of the Food Administration alnce Ita founda
tion I mault rcpreariitailve mru In the agricultural Industry oo ocinalona
uf Importance to special branches of the Induatry, on October 24 there n
coin .m il lu Washington a nu'i-ilnii of the Live Stock Subcommittee of the
Agricultural Advisory Hoard and Hie special iiirmhrr representing the swine
Imluatry to consider the altuatlon In the linn market.
The conference lasted for three daya, and durlnr thla time met with the
riecullve comuilttre of the lift y packing tlruia participating In foreign orders
for Mirk producu and with the mcmlx-re of the Food Aduiliilatrallon directing
foreign wrk purchaae.
The ronclualona of the conference were aa followa:
The entire marketing situation hu
so changed ellico Ihe Septcmlcr Joint
cot, f en tice aa to nceeiuilliile an entire
alteration In Ihe pluna f price aialil
llmitlim. The row-lit peace lulk haa
alarmed the holdera of corn, and ihcre
hua been a price decline of from

the unuaunl'y l.avy marketing of the
available supply. In the face of the
evceaalve rt-cei.ta some iwckera have
Dot niolntalni-J the price agreed laat
month, on Ihe other hand, many
of Ihe pn ken have paid over the
price offered to them In an endeavor
to nialnii.lii the agreed price. The re
sult In any event haa been a failure
to maintain the October price bual
determined upon at the September con
ference and undertaken by the pack-
era. Another factor contributing to
the break In price during the month
hn hccii the Induenu epidemic : It
haa ehnrply curtailed consumption of
pork product and temporarily de
rreaacd the labor elan of the pack era
about S."i per cent
The cMH.rts of lrtO.OW.OOO pound
of pork products for October com
pared with sbout ft2.000.000 pound
In October a year ago, and the
eiiort orden placeable by the Food
Administration for November, amount
to 1TO.0O0.0D0 pounda as contrast
ed with the leaner exports of
ns.000.0ti0 for Noember. 1U1T. The
Inrreawd demand of the allies are
continuing, and are In themaclTe
proof of the necessity for the large
production for which the Food Admin
istration asked. The Increase In ex
port demands nppeara to be amply
suinclent to tu up the lucrenso lu
hog pmducil ui, but unfavorable mar
ket conditions existing In October af
ford no fair Index of the aggregate
supply nnd demand.
It must be evident that the enor
mous shortage In fats In the Central
Kmplre and neutral countries would
luimeilliitely upon peace result In ad
ditional demand for pork product
which, i top of the heavy shipment
to the Allies, would tend materially
to Increase the American exporta. In
aamtich aa no considerable reservoir of
supplies exist outside of the United
Suites It seems probable that the
present proiecllve supplies would be
liiatlciute to meet thla world demand
with the return to peace. So far as It
la possible to Interpret thla fact. It ap
pears that there should be even a
stronger demand for pork product
after the war, and therefore sn.v alarm
of hog producers as to the effect of
pence Is unwarranted by tho outlook.
In the light of these circumstance
It I the conclusion of the conference
that attempt lo hold the price of hog
to the price of corn inny work out to
the tllsiidvantngc of pork producer.
It la the conclusion that any Interpre
tation of the formula should be a
broad gauged policy applied over a
long period. It I the opinion of the
conference that In substitution of thr
previous plant of atahlllrnllon Ihsi
Live Stock Subcommittee or tne Agn
'cultural Advisory Hoard, together v llh
the specially Invited awlne reprccnla
tlve. should accept the Invltutl. n of
the Food Administration to Join with
the Administration and the packers In
determining the prices at which con
trolled eximrt ordera ore to be placed.
This will be regularly don. The In
fluence of these order will be directed
to the mnliitenanr of tho common ob
ject namely. Ill nhlUintlun of the
ertce of live hoc so as o secure as far
aa It la possible fulr returns to the
producer and the Insurance of an ade
quate future aupply.
These foreign ordera are placed
Uxin Ihe basis of coal of hoga lo the
packera.
Aa Ihe renUt of long negotiation
between thla body and Ihe Pucker'
Committee, representing fbe 4.1 to 80
packera participating In foreign or
ders, together Kith Ihe Allied buyers,
all umler Hie Chairmanship of Ihe
rood Ailuiliilstratlon, the following un
dertaking haa been given by Ihe park
era :
In view of Ihe undertakings on the
part of ihe Food Admlulatratlon with
regard tu the co-ordinated pun-haec
of (Mirk produi-la. covered lu Ihe at-
I lached. It la agreed that Ihe packera
irtlriitiiig In these orders will un
dertake not to pun-base hoga for teas
than Ihe following agreed mlnltoutna
for Ihe month of Novemln-r, that la a
dnlly minimum of 117 .MJ per hundred
pounds on average of packera' drove,
excluding throw-outs. "T'hrnw-ajuls"
lo tie del! ned as pigs under l.'UI

kind shall be bought, except throw

klmvea to be construed ua the avei-n-t
!1if Ihe total aales In the market of all
hog for a given day. All te abov
to tie based on Chicago.
We agree tlint a committee shnll be
apMliitcd by Hie Ko.nl Administration
to check the dally o-rations In Ihe
vartoue markets with a view lo super
vision and deinoiiKtratlon of the curry
ing out of the above.
The ability of the packers to carry
out tills arrangement will depend ou
there being a normal marketing of
hog based upon the proportionate In
crease over the recelpta of laal year.
The Increase In production appear to
be a maximum of about 15 ier cent
and we can handle such an tncnuse.
If the producers of bogs should, as
they have In the past few week, pre
maturely mnrket hog In such Increas
ing number over the above It la en
tirely beyond the ability of the puck
er to maintain these minimum, and
therefore we null have Ihe co-owru-tlon
of the producer himself to main
tain these results It Is a physical
impossibility for the capacity of the
packing house- to handle a almtlar
over-flood of hogs snd to And a mnrket
for the output The packer are anx
ious to co-operate with the producer
In maintaining a atabllluitlon of price
and to see that producers receive a
fair price for their products.
(Signed) THUS. E. WILSON,
Chulrmun Packers' Committee.
The plan embodied above was adopt
ed by the conference.
The Food Administrator has appoint
ed a committee, comprising Mr. Thom
as K. Wilson, chairman of the Pack
en' Committee ; Mr. Kverett Drown,
president of the Chb-ago Livestock Kx
change; Major Itoy uf the Food Ad
ministration, Mr. Louis D. Hall of the
Ilureau of Markets, to undertake the
supervision of the executlou of the
plan In the various markets. Commis
sion men are aaked to co-operate In
carrying out the plan emliodled lu the
pnekera' agreement It must be evi
dent that offera by commission men to
sell hogs below the minimum cstsb
llshed above is not fnlr, either to the
producer or the participating puckers.
Mr. Drown has undertaken on behulf
of the commission men In Ihe United
States that they will loyally support
the plan.
It la believed by the conference that
this new plan, based aa It I upon a
positive minimum basis, will bring bet
ter results to the producer thnn aver
age prices for the month. It does not
limit top prices and should narrow
Ihe mnrglna necessary to country buy
era In more variable markets. It Is
believed that the plan should work out
close to $18 average.
8wlne producers of the country will
contribute to their own Interest by
not flooding the market, for it must be
evident that If an excessive over per
centage of. hoga Is marketed In any
one month price stablllrntlon and con
trol cannot succeed, and It Is certain
that producera themselves can contri
bute materially to Ihe efforts of Ihe
conferences If they will do their mark
eting In as normal a way ss possible.
The whole situation as existing at
present demands a frank and explicit
assurance from the conferees repre
sentednamely, that every possible
effort will be made to maintain a live
hog price commensurate with swine
production coals and reasonable sell
ing values In execution of the declar
ed policy of the Food Administration
to ue every agency In Its control to
secure Justice to the farmer.
The stnhllliallon methods adopted
for November represent ihe beat ef
forts of the conference, concurred In
by the Food Administration and the

Chief Catlin tells the story.
The officer motored along; on his
way to Portland, enjoying; the roads
and scenery. At Salem he ate at the
White Front restaurant, and took
plenty of time to the menu.
But when he parted his whispers,
donned a glove and went outside to
twist the Chalmers, it was gone. A
search of the city did not reveal It.
Another call has been sent to Al
