Mr. Chernin telephoned today to advise me of receipt of my letter to him. He further stated that he will be looking at acquiring from John Morrell & Co. two restrainer boxes presently at their closed Sioux Falls facility. If he is able to consummate the purchase, he intends to install them at the Federal Beef, Fargo, N.D., facility. He believes that the installation can be completed over a weekend. In the event these restrainers are either unavailable or not a proper fit fer the Fargo plant, he is committed to resolve the issue another way. He has promised to comply with our request.
