William S. Hart, the movie real heio
and about 1000 Salem folks met each
other yesterday evening when the Shas
ta Limited stopped for a few minutes.
"Bill" was about two minutes late in
making his appearance on the rear of
the train and as a result his speech was
limited to about a three minute talk.
He told of his letter from William
G. McAdoo asking him to assist in the
the Third Liberty loan campaign and
how much it frightened him to think
that he was about to appear before the
peoplo in person and not in pictures.
Then he told the story of how he aud
his, favorite bull dog were riding to
gether in aa auto. Their heads happen
ed to be close together when a couple
of women passed, One of the women re
marked, "What a brutal face." Then
the other said, " Which t". About this

OF HOTTEST SECTIONS
Army Losing Its Identity From
Being Scattered Among
Washington, April 24. The nation
today was stirred at word from Eng
ftind that some Americans are now bri
gaded with the allies on one of the
bitterest saetiojis of the western line.
The proem of brigading the Amer
icans is being hurried. Daily the war
department receives reports of shifts
of United States foices and these
changes are carefully tabulated. Soon
most of the army wir'l probably have
lost its identity, being swallowed up
in the. French aad British machines.
Tho changes abroad served to em
phasize strongly today the fact that

principle that "Black Jack" could

jand whkln he asked for it.

is Classed As One of Most
Daring Exploits In
London, April 24. The Franco-British
naval raid on the Belgian coast yester
day morning. one of the most daring
exploits in maritime history was be
lieved by experts to have sealed up tho
Zeebrugge Submarine base.
The blow is a hard one lo Germany
inasmuch as two 300-foot ships, filled
I with hundreds of tons of cement hard
ened like stone which were sunk in tho
channel will require weeks of labor to
remove. Meanwhile, many submarines
and other war craft thus will be block
ied from the open sea.
Survivors say the approaching ships
'were discovered near the mole and hun
dreds of guns from the shore batteries
opened fire on them. The ships were pai
tially protected by the mole, although
numerous hits were scored on tin-in in
the upper works and Other not vital
When the landing parties disembark
ed, the German garrison on the moie
fled, crying "It's the Americans!" The
tstoruiers destroyed cannon and immense
j quantities of munitions on the mole and

London, April 24. A sailor who par
ticipated in the raid on Zecbrugge said
today that two German destioyers were
sunk, one in the harbor and one along
side the mole.

High Cattle Prices
High Beef Prices
If consumers are to pay less for beef,
live-stock raisers naturally will receive
less for cattle.
If fanners are paid more for live stock,
consumers will necessarily pay more for
Swift & Company pays for cattle approximately
90 per cent of the price received for beef and
by-products. The remaining 10 per cent pays for
dressing, freight to market, operation of distributing
houses, and in most cases, delivery to the retailer.
Net profits also have to come out of this 10 per cent.
This margin cannot be squeezed arbitrarily without
danger of crippling the only effective means of performing
the complex service of converting cattle into meat and dis
tributing this meat to the fighting forces and to consumers.
Swift & Company's net profit on beef during 1917 was
only l4 of a cent per pound. On all products, it was
a little less than four cents on each dollar of sales. Com
plete elimination of these profits would not affect appreciably
retail prices of meat, or farm prices of live stock.
Swift & Company will be glad to co-operate in devising
methods that will improve conditions in the meat and
live stock industry.
