S. 3 Months--Rath AMES, Feb. 22.--"The state of Iowa produces annually about 15 per cent of the aggregate meat production of the United States--an amount sufficient to feed the entire population of the United States, at the prevailing rate of consumption, for almost three months," John W. Rath, chairman of the Board of the Institute of American Meat Packers, and president of the Rath Packing company, Waterloo, said last night, in an address before the Retail Meat Dealers' short coure in session at Iowa State college. "In 1933, Iowa apparently retained firmly its title as the leading state in the production of hogs, by producing approximately two billion pounds of pork and lard. "The production of meats in the United States during 1933 broke all existing records," Mr. Rath continued. "The meat industry,' packers and retailers, did its job during the year by maintaining a daily cash market for livestock, purchasing nearly twenty-four billion pounds of livestock--an increase of more than two billion pounds over 193: --and kept the channels of distribution open by selling the products ol the livestock In spite of the fact that the purchasing power of consumers during the year was less than one-half of normal. "Although low prices were necessary in order to keep the meat moving, the meat industry is proud that it was able to do its job and be able to offer the farmer cash for his livestock on any day the farm er wished to sell. At a time when many products could not be sold at any price, the meat industry continued to keep the hogs, cattle and sheep on the American farms anc ranches as negotiable as Liberty bonds."

STILLWATER, Minn., Feb. 22. 7P--The old soldier baa packed his kit bag once more for another march to the scene of by-gone days when the last man's club was in flower as it rallied 'round the banquet table at Lowell inn. But the last man's club haa given way to the Bully Beef club and Charles Lockwood, aged veteran of another war, formerly of West Union, Iowa, will not really "march" :o Stillwater from his home in South Dakota for the World War veterans' last buddies Bully Beef club dinner, but will ride by train and automobile. "I am feeling much better now and I shall tie happy to meet the Bully Beefers," the 91 year old Civil War veteran advised Lloyd B. Killl- ner, first vice commander of the state department of the American Legion who heads the "Bully Beef- ers." . Lockwood Sole Survivor. Lockwood will meet the 280 members of the club tonight at its third annual banquet where a battle scarred, battered tin of beef, rescued from the shell torn fields of France in the World war, will grace the table. A little baud of the boys in blue formed the last man's club, cherishing: a bottle of wine that was to be opened by the man who lived the longest among its membership. Lockwood, his legs slowed by the years and his eyes dimmer by age, was that survivor. In place of the wine, the Bully Beef club has the tin of beef. The last two of its surviving members, will pry it open and eat its contents marking the end of the club. State Commander Speaker. "The object of our club is to form and perpetuate a selective group of World war veterans," said Sergeant Major Ktlllner. "It is to so strengthen the bonds of comradeship and to unite the members of this club so closely that death alone can sever their ties." The chief speaker at tonight's banquet will be Michael Murray, St. Cloud, state commander of the American Legion. Mr. Killiner will introduce Stafford King-, state auditor, who will be toastrnaster. King is a charter member of the Bully Beef club. The can of beef was brought back from France by Dr. C. J. Fredell, Hector, who presented it to the organization. Goes Back to 1018. The romance of the Bully Beef club goes back to Nov. 7, 1918, a. few miles from the village of Grand Pre on the Meuse Argonne front, Seventy-seventh division, of which Dr. Fredell was a member. It was at this time that Fredell was issued the can of beef. Fredell later lost his pack contain- ng the can of beef. As the can had 'red ell's name scratched on it, hrough the efforts of a Red Cross nurse it was found. Fredell went back to his company on Nov. 10 and on Nov. 11 was transferred to the Army of Occupation, which started ts famous march to Germany. Sarting from Sweden the army went through Luxemberg and arrived at Trier, Germany, Dec. 24, 1918. Along this memorable march went the can of bully beef am" would have been devoured by Frci ell at Trier had he not been fo tunate enough to swap some arm soup for a big home cooked mea' Staying at the famous Fort Ehre; jreitstc-in at Coblenz, Germany, f some time arid in that vicinity Fred- ill did guard duty until September, 1919. All this time he had the can of bully beef in his pack. Brought to America. One day in septe-ivoer, preparing for inspection, he noticed it and was about to throw it away when a buddy, R. Hooper of East Orange, N. J., suggested bringing it home as a souvenir which Fredell did. Jan. 3, 1931, Fredell was showing his war relics to his brother-in-law, P. Milton Lindbloom, who conceived the idea of forming a last man's club around this can of bully beef-just as the famous Last Man's club, composed of veterans of Company B, First Minnesota of Civil war fame, was former around a bottle of wine. The formation of the last Buddies Bully Beef club followed.

HERRING HALTS WORK ON BRIDGE Controversy Centers on Pay Dispute; Claim' NRA Is Violated. DBS MOINES, Feb. 22. Work on the Euclid avenue bridge here was halted today after an executive order from Gov. Clyde Herring to the state highway commission. The order followed a recommendation by the Polk county NRA compliance board for such action.
