H e gripped an iinllpliled cigar in his right fist and a smouldering cigarette in his left. He took alternate puffs on both and eventually ruined the cigar (ho bnng- cd involuntarily) in his exasperation with Wendell Berge, f! 1D government's official trust-buster. The plump little pink-faced erge. solemnest assistant attorney general of them all. appeared before Chairman Langer and his Civil Service Committee to nsk- for more money to hire more lawyers :o prosecute more firms under tlic Sherman Anti-Trust Act. oh, oh The proceedings started peacefully enough, wilh Berge listing the number of anti-trust cases lie's filed the last few years. Lan°er wondered how many of the guilty JfK-wigs of business he'd put in "None," said Berge. "None in the ast generation, I guess." f He added that people arc ! pecul- »>'. They don't regard anti-trust •violators like they c! 0 sneak':thieves or embezzlers. "Now wait a minute, Mr. Bergc," roared_Langer,_exhaling smoke like an irritated dragon.' "lf~a man steals a loaf of bread in Minneapolis you put him in jail.
