Testifying recently before a body of •enatoris in Washington, a jstae-presl- denf: of one' of the large packing concerns (F. Hdson. White of Armour and Company) made the astounding statement that'so lei in the'lr fiscal year, which would coyer" the''.past eight of. nine'months, his'company had ''made no money whatever on beef." , j •. This statement is doubtless' Voll , nigh incredible to the average' man. p Yet it was made in full knowledge that ! the "senators had access to the com- 'pany's books. . Kecovering from, the first shock, this . same average man will say, "Yes, but . the packers are shrewd; what they do not make on the beef they more than make up on the. tides." But even this illusion was destined to be shattered. Mr. White ; explained . that his statement included everything that was derived from the steer as purchased—Ihe hide, fat, even-the intestines which are used, largely for sausage casings. • Make Money, Nevertheless. Well .the packers make money—how do they do it? Mr. White admitted that they did, quoting figures secured .by auditors of the Food Administration, to the effect that packers' profits on food'commodities .of all kind last year were'1 6/10 cents'on each 'dot lar, taken in. These would includa such "things as 'sausage, shortening, canned meats, etc., in.addition tb fresh meats, hams and bacon. On all'the products of his company, Mr. Whitfe explained, comprising both foods and inedible commodities, the profits during the same period were 1 8/10 cents on each dollar sale. All of which would lead many to say that the packing business is not well understood. It isn't. Yet as one of the leading Industries of the country, its workings and, above all, its profits, should be familiar matters to us. It Is quite useless to orate against the high cost of living without digging into some of these fundamentals. By-Producta at Market Value*. One of the most enlightening bits 'of Mr. White's testimony was .'his ex- plarfation of the way In which cost price of beef is arrived at. If a steer is bought at $125.00 and hides are bringing $16.00 in the , open market, then $16.00 is credited to the cost of i the steer. If hides are selling at $23.001 that amount is credited. The visceral | fat, offal and everything else that comes from the 'steer are likewise credited at their prevailing market values. \ What remains "is taken as the cost price of the meat. 'The beef car-'| cass is then shipped to one of the lo- | cal distributing branch houses, and the manager there is given the cost price with instructions to sell the beef ; at a profit if he can. But in any event. whether the local market "be lively "or dull, he inu^t sell •for'what he" can ge't; for the commodity is'a perishable one afld must be sold.. • • , Manufacturer's Profit on By.Products. Ho'wever,..there i« aaotlier hitch to the packing businesiii quite.,as .little understood apparently;'-that g6es"t6' a' loss-'on •'fresti meats^miiy be, accompanied by a profit on the total amount of business done. Take, for example, the banjo strings, aforementioned, which are. made from the intestines of sheep. The; department that '"makes • banjo strings (and' liter wise surgical, ligatures, tennis strings; etc'.,)' "buys'" the-intestlnes.-from-the shbep-kiliing'department; paying: es-- actly the same 5 price'that these bring; wJ»<>n sold to the, outside market.'
