THE HENNESSEY CLIPPER
Despite its scope Swift 8c
Company is a business of in-
finite details, requiring infinite
Experienced men must know
livestock buying with a knowl-
edge of weight, price, the amount
and quality of meat the live
animals will yield.
Each manufacturing operation must
be done with expert skill and scientific
precisiont A highly perishable product
must be handled with speed and care
to avoid loss.
Chemists, engineers, accountants
and other specialists are required to
take care of our intricate problems.
Alert wisdom and ludgment must
be used in getting stocks of goods into
the open channels >f aernanc through
our four hundrec branch houses.
Branch house orgamrations must
jihow •ctrvm anr energy to sell a: the
marKet m the fart of acute competi-
tion from other arge packers, and
hundreds of small or.es.
All these requirements of intelligence,
loyalty, devotion to the task, are met
in the personnel of Swift & Company.
Yet the profit is only a fraction of a cent
per pound with costs at minimum.
How can the workings of this deli-
cate human mechanism be improved
Do you believe that Government
direction would add to our efficiency
or improve the service rendered the
producer and consumer ?
Let us send you a Swift "Dollar".
