WASHINGTON, May 3. --The perishability of meat tends to turn both farming and packing Into "Christmas tree industries" In which the seller must sell quickly for whatever price he can get, declared John W. Rath, chairman of the board of the Institute of American Meat Packers, to the annual meeting of the Chamber of Commerce of the United States this afternoon. Speaking on the subject of "The Packer and the Agricultural Program," Mr. Rath, who is president of the Rath Packing company of Waterloo, declared that the perish- ability of most forms of meat puts their owner "on the spot" just as if he were selling Christmas trees on Christmas ev ( e. Must Sell Crop. "The farmer whose chief crop is livestock, must sell this year's crop this year," he explained, "not only because he owes the banker on it, but also because there is a definite time in the growth of stock at which it should be marketed, just as there is a certain moment to take a cake from the oven." Mr. Rath described hogs as apparently the only "perishable" product on the list of processing taxes and noted that the slaughter tax o: 2% cents a pound 1 on a hog tha' sells for but 4 cents a pound, is equivalent to 56 per cent of his value and is perhaps the highest tax on the list. He pointed out also tha if the tax could be compared with the value of the product, the ratio would be considerably higher than 56 per cent, because hogs are a "diminishing commodity"--the bes any packer .can possibly do with each hundred pounds of hog is t get about 72 pounds of meat an lard from it. 6 Times Profit. He declared that the $200,000,000 "or nearly that," which the packin industry will turn over to the gov ernment in processing taxes thi year, is more than six times th profits of the entire industry from all sources last year, and more thar three times its entire profits in 192 or 1924, its record years of the so called prosperity era. For the 10-year period ending it 932, he declared, the packing In- ustry was averaging but 3.8 per ent on its investment, while all the ndustries of the country were aver- glng 8.1 per cent, or more than wice as much. He added that "if very cent of their 1933 profit from 11 sources had been passed on to he farmer in higher prices for his vestock, the increase would have een only about one-seventh of one ent per 1 pound."
