I Ice Boxes on-Wheels. I
Refrigerator cars for carrying meat are ice boxes
traveling on wheels.
Most people in America-would have' to go without
fresh meat, or would have to pay more for what they
could get, if it were not for these traveling ice boxes.
Gustavus F. Swift, the first Swift in the packing industry, saw
the need of these traveling ice boxes before others.
He asked the railroads to build them. The railroads refused.
They were equipped, and preferred to haul cattle rattier than
So Gustavus F. Swift had to make the cars himself. The first
one was a box car rigged up to hold ice. Now there aro 7,000 Swift
refrigerator cars. Each one is as fine an ice box as 3'ou have
in your home. , x
Day,and night, fair weather and foul, through heat and cold,
these 7,000 cars go rolling up and down the country, keeping meat
just right on its way to you.
Thus another phase of Swift & Company'3 activities has grown
to meet a need no one else could or would supply, in a way that
matched Swift & Company ideas cf being useful. ,
,. -When you see one of these Swift & Company cars in a train,
or on a siding, you will be reminded of what is being dons for you
as the fruit of experience and a desire to serve.

Prune Situation Just a
Little More Encouraging
The life of the prune packer is not
a very liappy one, especially sifcice
there is such a demand by the grow
lers for their money while at the same
, time the packers have nothing but
promises or orders for shipping next
December or January. Everything has
foeen held ,up by the federal food ad
ministration that has been figuring
for . the .past four weeks how much
damage wag done. by rains in Califor-
As an example of conditions, the Dra
gej Fruit Co. received Sept. 25 a let
ter saying that an allotment would be
rushed through calling for the ship
ment of 1,000,000 pounds of Italians
and 320,000 pounds of Pctites and this
from an official. Today after waiting
more than three weeks for the orders
that was to be rushed, the Drager
Fruit Co. received an order not for
the 1,000,000 pounds of Italians but
for the 320,000 pound ordr of Pctites.
This looked at first encouraging, but
the order closed with instructions that
one half of the shipment was to be
made to a foreign, port in Dtceniber
and the othor half in January. An or
der good for two or three months in
the future does not relieve the present
A wire was received today by the
company to ship half a million pounds
of prunes in SO pound boxes to JSng
lnd, with the further information
that contracts and shipping instruc
tions would be mailed. It 'will be at
least ten days before those instruc
tions are received and of course the
order is held up until about Oct. 17.
A letter was received by Drager
from W. B. Ayer, state federal food
administrator, that the quartermast

made at once. This seemed quite en

is not a happy one.
