DBS MOINES, Dec. 13. /P)-John P- Mullen, president of the Io\ya State fair board, demanded . that steps be taken to restore the competitive livestock market to the farmer in an address here today at the opening- of the state agricultural convention. He charged that the Chicago packers' practice of building up l i v e s t o c k concentration points throughout the state for direct buying is destroying competition and ruining livestock prices. "In former days at the Chicago stockyards," Mullen declared, "packers, butchers and eastern shippers competed at the great central Chicago market for the needed quota of beef and pork to keep their plants running. "However with the advent of direct buying by the big Chicago packers, competition at the great central market is destroyed, with the result that the packers with a reasonable supply direct from their concentration stations, can keep their plants going and usually refuse to bid or compete with other classes of buyers until they arq supplied and then reluctantly take what is left over. "Something must be done," he said, '.'to bring about a return of healthy, competitive markets for these livestock products which are of such transcendent Importance to our state." lowan Takes Own Life.
