THE DAILY CAPITAL JOURNAL, SALEM, OREGON, TUESDAY, JULY 8, 1919.
"Meats in Storage"
Every working day of the year 75,000,000 pounds
of meat are required to supply home and export needs
and only 10 per cent of this is exported. .
These' facts! must be kept in mind when consid
ering the U.; & Bureau of Markets report that on
June 1, 1919, 4her -were 1,-348,000,000 pounds of
meats in. cold storage.: If the meat in storage was
placed on the market it would only be 20 days' supply. .
This meat is not artiBcially withheld from trade
channels to maintain or advance prices. -
Meats in storage consist of
'65 '.per cent (approximate) hams, bacon, etc., in
process of curing. It "takes 30 to 90 days in
pickle or salt to complete the process.
10 per cent is frozen pork that is to be cured
later in the year.
6 per cent is lard. This is only four-fifths of a
pound per capita, and much of it will have
to go to supply European needs.
19 per cent is frozen beef and lamb, part of
. ... which is owned by the Government and was
intended chiefly for over-seas shipment. If
this were all diverted to domestic trade chan
nels, it would be only lKlbs. per capita a
3 days supply. .
From this it will , be seen that . "meats in .
storage" represent merely, unfinished goods in pro
cess of curing and the working supply necessary to
assure the consumer a steady flow of finished product.

"The league of nstioire -ii the most

Taaaahi Harm, leader of the jSeiyjkM

lines so she can. contribute her full

tbe Orient, It is not expected that the
league will settle all international dis

be a salutary check on ambiguous and
unscrupulous politics that menace world
peace. If a stable Russia and the new
nations evolved from the war join, the
