EIGHTEEN MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE DECEMBER 12 1933 jMeat Supply Goes Beyond Purchasing Power, Claim l-ETe'ad- of Institute of American Meat Packers Gives | Review of Packing Industry. :·'! The following statement by William Whitfield Woods, president of 'he Institute of American Meat Packers, was Issued Monday by the inj'Utute: ' · , ;;s "Present low prices of livestock are due in part to the fact that the Viurchasinjj power of consumers have fulled to keep pace with the in- ·r'reaB'e which has occurred during recent months in the production of meat ;i 'jid lard. Production of meat and lard so far this year has been larger iyy more than 900,000,000 pounds than during the same period a year ago. vi "There have been unusually heavy* ;-'uns of beef cattle during recent Greeks,- as'well as heavy marketings 'f hogs, which have resulted in a ;/irge production of fresh pork. ;'; "Receipt" of cattle at 20 markets ·\uring- the month of November, for /sample, showed an increase of 17 :':'Jer cent over the marketings dur- Sg the same period of 1932 and ae number of hogs dressed during ioyember at 8 markets showed an J'icrease of 40' per cent over the Prices Lower. "Prices at wholesale of freah pork cuts have declined so sharply since the first part at November that present levels are from 18 to 36 per cent lower than those which prevailed at that time. "The increase in production ol meat applies to all kinds of meat except lamb, as indicated by the following tables, showing the number of animals dressed under federal inspection during the period from January to November, inclusive and the aggregate amount of meat HOGS CONTINUE THEIR DOWNWARD PLUNGE AVERAGE GRAIN VALUES LOWER Moderate Temperatures in Crop Area Give Edge to Wheat Bears.

W)--The downward plunge of hog values continued unabated today. Prices fell off another 10 to 15 cents and the top dropped to $3.30, only 20 cents above the 54 year low established Jan. 2. Excessive supplies and dwindling demand for dressed pork brought the weakness. Trade was active at the decline, with packing plants buying freely despite 12,000 .hogs billed direct from the country. Moat of the good hogs sold between $3.10 and 53.25. Outside markets also reported heavy supplies with prices ranging from barely steady to 10 and 15 cents off, mostly a dime lower. Cattle trade was fairly active and mostly steady on light cattle. Re- i ceipts were held down and ran un-.' der the supply received last Tuesday. A mixed, load of light steers and heifers topped at 56.75, but the bulk were little better than $5.40. Most heavy steers ranged from $3.75 to $5. Sheep receipts were heavy, but most of the early trade was about steady. Fat native lambs were held at ?7.50 and above with scattered bids down to J7.25.

"The supply of livestock coming to market is beyond the control of the packing industry. All the packing industry can do is to take the supply that comes, whether large or small, and market it to the best of the industry's ability. "The packing industry cannot hold a given supply of meats indefinitely for better prices; it must be sold promptly for what retailers will -pay. Retailers, in turn, must price it at levels that will move it nto consumption before it spoils. "Higher price levels to consum- rs, unless there were a correspond- ng increase in the consumers' abil- ty to buy, would turn people to ompeting products and reduce the volume of meat consumed. 'The result of these economic factors la that the going market rice of meats represents, in prac ;lce, the approximate level at which the current supply can be sold.'

UP-Stocks encountered selling in the late trading today after having held steady in the earlier hours. Rails eased following forenoon firmness. Recessions of fractions to more than a point were recorded by American Telephone, U. S. Steel, New York Central, TJ. S. Smelting, American Can and Auburn, transfers approximated 1,500 shares. The dollar was moderately higher in foreign exchange dealings as the domestic gold rate was again unchanged and currency stabilization talk was still heard in Wall Street. Sterling dropped more than 2 cents after early small gains and the French franc eased around .03 of a cent. Grains and cotton moved narrowly, but silver was under some pressure. Bonds were a trifle irregular. Notwithstanding the apparent better feeling toward equities generally, brokerage houses reported that the public had been doing little more than nibbling in the past week or so. The interest of the professionals, at the moment, seemed to be about evenly divided between activities at Washington and indications of growing Improvement in the business and industrial situation.

There was no real pressure, but sufficient scattered selling kept coming In to keep prices on the downgrade, with moderate rallies of the day not holding. The selling was mostly attributed to recent buyers, discouraged over the failure of the market to move upward. December acted ralber tight at times anil was around a cent under May with some buying of December Against sales of May a factor. Cash wheat here went to \f. cent over May for carlots of No. 2 hard, the basis being uj* around H to 1 cent as compared with Monday when trading was on the basis of December. The southwest was experiencing mode moderate temperatures. CORN--Corn averaged lower on scattered selling, part of which was regarded as due to a slight Increase In. country offerings of cash grain to arrive. Purchases of nearly 255,000 bushels were reported, of which fiO.OOO bushels were from another terminal market, by a leading Industry. No. 3 grades were bought at a price that figured around 3W cents above a delivery basis as compared wfth the December, ns this grade can only be delivered at a discount nt 2 cents In comparison with the No. 2 grades.
