The court held that Alcoa was the (then) only aluminum producer, in Ihe field because of efficiency, and not : because it had mbiiopolixed the naturally accessible ingredients of bauxite and water power. Now the government has' appealed the decision to a special federal court and has asked that the company be dissolved. Solicitor General Charles Fahy presented the government's argument" And in speaking of the "innumerable" business transactions growing out of Alcoa's development, he said: .. "Assuming that each were innocent if treated in isolation . . . (Ihe) end result (hus achieved and maintained for (his.long period of lime in a basic industry, namely 100 par cent monopoly, in nhd of ilsnl!', all else beside, brings Al oil into.conflict with Section 2 of the ClicrhiM) Act (which defines monopoly ilr a irJxdcinci'nor and cuts forth its miix'mum penally)." Thufj it seems that tlu; government IRW consider,-; that; thqugh a business struct lira may be guilty .of no overt •a?lB ami iri (he sum of equally innocent, parts, it becomes punishable under law if only thu total business structure is large enough and exclusive enough. Quo might wonder whether, if mere size and efficiency in private industry 1 are to be penalized, the government's ultimate goal is a great ninny small private businesses and a good many large and exclusive TVAs. • The sum of all these considerations re-emphasizes the fact'ihat there hasn't been and can't be such a,thing as a ncuiipl Emopean power'In this war.
