THE POLITE "BUSINESS" BURGLARY OF THE TRUST, AND THE HIGH-ERICE OF MEAT BEEF There isn't much need to hunt forvthe cause of the high cost oflivings after the revelations made at 'the trial of the packers. , These revelations are almost sad. They show such an irurnoral state of mind'on the part of the packers. 3 ,' There is now no question , but that the packers were in a combine, a combine which' dominated the meat industry which fixed the "prices of cattle on the hoof and the prices of dressed meats, which bullied the railroads and swelled the fortunes of the Armours, the Swifts and the Morrises. The old pool, hidden' under the name of "R0. Box 247" did that many years ago. ' The packers were making $22,000,000 profit oyt of this every year on their own showing. Taking their, own figures, ..this was a profit of xver 12 per cent on their invested capital. And their own figures were, not correct. They were' swollen by watered stock..

He would buy his ownrt profits. The actual, cash obtained from, the sale of his stock woujd be clear profit for the packers. They were just going to'shove $600;- 000,000 of the investing public's! money into their jeans. Nowt the packers slay this scheme fell througlvwhich it undoubtedly did. The reason it fell throuerK is not very clear.

Ring generals, of course, find the weakness of the opponent and hammer him there whenever they get a chance. But in boxing - you are working for points not trying to batter a man to pieces and finally deliyer.a knockout. ; I want to explain feinting which is perhaps the finest "bit of' ring work from the spectators' viewpoint-and also an art most necessary to every boxer. Feinting means to make your opponent'belieyeyouare going to hit him in one place$ thus drawing , him off his guard, leaving an opening into which you can, shoot' the real punclrthat you'plan.
