The Circuit Court ruling making unconstitutional "trade barriers, which obstruct the free flow of celery and sweet corn to market" was upheld.

It also held that the authorization to prohibit "unfair trade practices is subject to some infirmity." Hawkins said the last two items that were mentioned in the ruling had never been used by the committee and that there had been no plans to ever use them.

But while we don't save on our Scotch, we do save on taxes and transportation. We import in barrels and bottle here. We could and maybe even more successfully charge more and pocket the extra profit. I t's just that price-wise we have this foolish fear of heights.
