Attorney General Tom C. Clark warned today that small businesses gradually are being eliminated In the wake of a "dangerous anrt unfortunate .trend, toward monopoly." "Bis; business has become bigger and smaller lnde|>ondeiH enlerpri- .ses have shrunk in sl/e or have disappeared altogether," Clark lotd ' Ihc general session or the 34tli annual meeting of Ihc National Chnmbcr of Commerce. "Essential war-time controls, lo- CCthcr with other phases of the war, played a part in accelerating the dangerous and unfortunate trend toward monopoly and the disappearance of independent enterprise," lie said. Clark added, however, that this does not mean that the lime litis arrived to completely abandon war- lioie conlrots, "Business has a Ire- mendous slake in the continuation of OPA for another year." he said, warning that "us we do abandon war time governmental controls over industry, we must, be very certain that we arc not surrendering control to private monopolists."
