Palestine Is Topic of Delano Meeting Mrs. Homer Rose Addresses Members of Women's Club Two Delano Soldiers Home on Furlough DELANO, Oct. 20.—Two Delano homes have as guests this week eons who are serving in the armed forces. Mr. and Mrs. James Beryl Nicely have as their suest their eldest son, Sergeant Kenneth Nicely of the anti-aircraft ^division, who is based at F,l Paso, Texas. Mr. and Mrs. C. S. Parks have as their guest their son, Private Woon- yong Parks, of the medical corps, who has just finished a four months laboratory course at Indianapolis, Ind., and who will leave when his furlough is ended for North Carolina. At With the Loaded In the 1944 livestock production "game," the •farmers and ranchers of America are certain to win another pennant for patriotic effort by an even wider margin than in 1943. An Vofficial box score," with figures showing the numbers of livestock slaughtered in all meat- packing plants operating under federal inspection, tells the story: 1943 Totals (An all time record) Hogs-63,431,000 Lambs-23,363,000 Cattle-11,727,000 Calves— 5,209,000 1st 7 months of 1944 (Increase ever tarn* months eM 943) 30.3 per cent 3.3 per cent 24.3 per cent 55.9 per cent .During these first seven months of 1944, the meet-packing industry often found itself "at bat with the bases loaded." So many animals arrived that facilities for the handling of livestock and preparing of meats were taxed to the limit. When the bases are full, the batter is under a strain. Like the batter, Swift & Company found its capacity strained during the heavy marketings. In spite of this, how- v ever, we have bought and handled more livestock than many similar periods in our history. This was done even with the shortage of expe- rienced help, difficulty in obtaining containers and of finding storage space with coolers already filled to the doors. We did our best "hitting in the pinches" by buying several days' supply of Livestock ahead of slaughtering capacity. This was a costly practice—but an essential one. We are proud of the meat production records of 1943 and 1944. We had a hard job to do and we did it! But the greatest share of the credit goes properly to our team mates, the producers of Livestock. For we know that these outstanding records were made .under difficulties and are the result of hard work on their part, long hours, and extra effort all the way around.
