The opinion was Issued after Prosecutor Louis J. Schneider had obtained an injunction against the Howards Dry Cleaners and Nu- Way Cleaners to restrain them from cutting prices below the, code price of 75 c,°nts for dry cleaning. f A r> J revue held here V Signers of Acreage Keduc- Thursday nights, i to \lion"Contracts'.Are^.-.In- '\ited io'-'Aftehd V ''-"- : ^' '"•'"'' '' •" ."'
