Mr. Gardiner:

There is always supervision when there is a floor price. I can best illustrate that by saying it is only a few weeks ago that it was found that a floor price was established on hogs. Immediately following that it was found that at certain places a price of 25 cents less per hundred pounds was being paid. This was immediately checked and in a very short time it was levelled out at 26 cents. The same kind of supervision will be applied to cattle as has been applied to hogs.
