Finally, Assistant-Attorney <ii-tieral .Dan Duke and State Guard Commander Collins urged Arnall to send for the troops. "No." replied Arnall. "This thing r;nnnot bo decided by force.

"Is it all right for me to come in?" asked Pearce. "Sure, come on in and make yourself at home," replied Marcus. I'm pi.-ctty sure the meeting is open to everybody." Pearce explatri<f<3 that he mlphi bo able to pick up somo new Ideas to help housing; so Marcus escorted him in and the two men swapped stories about their experiences in the Navy. Next thing Pearce knew, Legion lobbyist John Thomas Taylor was pointing in his direction and sputtering furiously. "Get him out of here!" he shouted. Another Legion official who thouKht that Taylor-was acting im- puUlvely tried to dissuade him, but Taylor continued to storm. I don't care!" he yelled, "I'm running this meeting and 1 want him out of here." Turning again to Pearce, "Taylor demanded angrily: "Don't you know you ore in a closed session?" "I'm sorry; I thought it was open'," apologized Pfcarce, as lie left the room. Behind him in the so-callerl closed meeting remained a numberj of real ostale lobbyists, Including Frank Coartrlght, vice president of the National Association of Home Builders. newsprint Monopoly Conchisivo evidence of con- siplracy to juck up the price of newsprint to American newspapers over a long period of years is contained in a Federal Trade Commission report now being studied by the Senate Small Business Committee. The report shows how -the big paper companies, most of them operating in Canada but partly controlled by American bankers have Illegally put their heads to Bother to charge the same prlc< for newsprint and to keep the price high. One of the great haz nrds of a free- and competitive Am nrlcan press today is the difllculty of getting newsprint. The FTC report especially cite.3 the International Paper Company which, although Canadian opcrat l.s dominated by the Phijpps family of Colorado and by the Chase Na- :ional Bank. The Phipps family In :iu-n Is closely allied with the Rockefellers. Snortly after the Jast war. the Justice Department Indicted tho newsprint cartel and secured aeon- sent decree that they co«jc monopoly practices. The Federal Trade 'ommission's report, made for the Attorney General, covers the period up to 1939 and shows that the cartel has pretty much pone back to Its monopoly operation except .hat it liecps its books, offices, etc, : n Canada out of reach of the Justice Department. The Justice D< parturient's Anti-Tryst Division now ongiisred an a quiet probe of the newsprint c'irte!, but official they were handicapped by the 'act that the companies had care "ully kept their records in Canada, Justice Department officials added, lowever, thty had no reason to bu- levc there had been any change of conditions described in the FTC's •cport. Hlghllghta of Report This report, Incidentally .was kept confidential until Senator Murray of Montana, recently demoted head of the Small Business ommittee, ferreted it out and demanded 'that It be published. Federal Trade officials demurred for 'car the newsprint Industry's 'rionds in Congress would slash heir funds In retaliation. Senator Wherry of Nebraska, who hag succeeded Murray as Small Business Chairman, still has not decided whether to publish the newsprint •oport, though this column probably will force it Into the open. Hero are some of the highlights of the confidential newsprint monopoly survey: 1—Throe big' newspaper groups uie about 25 per cent of all the newsprint In the United States— tha Scrlppa-Howard chain, the Pattersan-MoCormlck press, and Hearst. . 2—Almost «v«ry newspaper publisher was willing to cooperate with the Federal Trade Commission in making Its report except the Gannett chain In New York, which flatly refused. 3—The New York Times secures its paper from the Spruce Falls Power and Paper Company of Ontario, of which it IB half owner. The Chicago Tribune owns all 'the stock of the Ontario Paper Co. The Hearst papers and also those in Minneapolis, St. Paul and Sioux City have an Interest In newsprint companies. But aside from the above, every paper in the United States Is dependent on the news- p pi n't monopoly. Subsequent to the- PTC Report, tho Cowles Interests which purchased the Minneapolis Tribune disposed of all ownership n paper mills. 4—Members of the newsprint cartel hold secret meetings in Canada at which they fix prices. Minutes of these meetings arc carefully guarded, and only the initials of those participating are used. Full names are omitted. However, the Federal Trade Commission secured the summary of one meet- ng held in Vancouver, British Co- umbia, which is most revealing! Present at the meeting were G. 3.
