great many people have wanted to have a new picture of Jim Poole, who seems to
almost jump right through the loud speaker when he says, "Chicago Live Stock
Exchange, broadcasting from the Union Stock Yards, Chicago."
Jim has been a stock reporter at the Chicago stock yards for somany years that
nobody remembers just how long. He has seen the market hit the top and the bottom,
and has a personal acquaintance with thousands of livestock shippers throughout
The picture at the right was taken in November, 1933, while Jimwas making his
daily rounds, looking over the livestock receipts for the day.
A lot of people enjoy listening to Jim Poole's livestock markets eho don't know
much of anything about the market, except they enjoy his picturesque language.
