P*r hundred pounds higher. AC St. Louis they were up $1.50 to (3. The big packers were buying more animals lor slaughter in plants which previously had been struck. They were bidding the price up. Farmers sent the heaviest cattle shipment to market since March 8, eight days before the strike began. Cattle sent to the 12 big Midwestern livestock terminals today totaled 71,500 head, compared with 74,000 March g and 57..500 a week ago today. Hog shipments today totaled 76,600, compared with 77,000 last Monday. Favorable weather kepi many farmers in the fields and prevented" them from shipping hogs. M,m Workers Reiurn About 10.000 employes of the Bwift, Armour and Cudahy packing companies and 10,000 workers »t independent firms were set to resume work in plants they struck March 16. The first sent individual telegrams to employes early today, notifying them to return. The workers were being returned in groups ae their departments were prepared for work. kJl-kfits continued to parade be- 1&te Wilson and Company plants, however. The union continued the strike against Wilson because the *rm refused to arbitrate cases where striken were fired for ille- tal acts. Th* biggest picket lines In the history of the strike appeared before tfca Wilson plant at Chicago today. Nevertheless, a number of non-strf HrtM. «nd 71 »nd jee entered Bl|f Shipments Seen A spokesman for Swift, largest of the packers, said farmers wouid probably ' ship huge lots of live»tock to markets for the next week. hogs, he said, would become especially plentiful. An Armour spokesman said that "formers have been holding back shipments because of the strike but they're anxious to get rid of marketable animals to avoid feed costs." "From today on these should be more cattle, more sheep and particularly more hogs on the market." he said. But none of the spokesmen would promise the housewife that the more plentiful shipments would ease the strain on her pockctbook.
