Ever since the anti-trust lawyers filed their suit to put A«tP out of business, they have been making, in the newspapers and over the radio, various "allegations" about how they think this company does business. Please remember that "allegations" are charges that have not been proved. In this case they will be disproved. There have been times in the past when the anti-trust lawyers made very damaging "allegations" about this company that the courts eventually decided were utterly without foundation. In our last advertisement we told you about the time the anti-trust lawyers charged that A&P, two other food chains and two labor unions conspired to fix the price of bread in Washington, D. C And yet, when this case came to trial, it was revealed that the defendants were actually telling bread cheaper than most other stores in Washington, and that there wa« absolutely no evidence that they had ever engaged in any such "alleged" conspiracy. That was the time Federal Judge T. Alan Gold.borough instructed the jury to bring in a verdict of "not guilty." It was the time he said to thei anti-trust lawyers: "If you were to thow thit record to any experienced trial lawyer in the world, he would tell you that there wat not any evidence at all. "Hontttly, / have never in my over forty yeart* experience teen tried a cote that wat at abtolutely devoid of evidence at thit. That it the honett truth. I have never teen one like it." But this was not the only time that the anti-trust lawyers made such serious "allegations" against AficP which were false. Again, and still again, they brought cases against A&P and suffered defeat. t ,A As we have said, we think you are entitled to know about these other cases. And now, we are going to tell you about the second time the anti-trust lawyers were wrong. The North Carolina Potato Case In December, 1941, the anti-trust lawyers brought a criminal •uit in Wilton, North Carolina. They charged that A&P's fresh fruit and vegetable buying subsidiary, and other good American citizens, had conspired to fix and depress prices paid farmers for potatoes in North Carolina, Virginia and Maryland. Can anyone imagine any charge calcujated'to be more damaging to a retail grocery business that must rely on farmers, day after day, for the food we distribute to our customers? In this case the anti-trust lawyers gave a story to the newspapers, telling millions of farmer* that we were the kind of people who would force their prices down, deprive them of a decent income, and lower their families' living standard. These charges were false. They made these charges despite the fact that it has always been A&P't policy to pay our farm suppliers fair market prices for all produce; to aid agriculture through better distribution of its products; to narrow the spread between farm and retail prices; and to help farmers build better markets for their products. That it why many thousands of farmers all over the country are now coming to our support. , When the case finally came to trial, the anti-trust lawyers put on as their first witness a potato expert of the U. S. Department of Agriculture. This expert, who was the anti-trust lawyers' own witness, testified that contrary to the anti-trust lawyers' "allegations," the defendants made every effort to help the Department of Agriculture in its tforts to aid the potato farmer in better marketing of his products and in getting a better price for his products. When the anti-trust lawyers had put in their evidence and argued their case. Federal Judge C. C. Wyche directed the jury to bring in a verdict of "not guilty." Judge Wyche said to the anti-trust lawyers: "I have studied this case from the very outset. In my opinion there is no testimony produced from which it can reasonably bm inferred that the defendants-entered into a combination to depress or lower the price of potatoes. "I might say that I never tried a case in my life where a greater effort, more work, more investigation bad been done, combing almost with a fine-tooth comb to gather evidence, as was done in this case. "But, as was said a long time ago, you can't make brick without straw, and you can't make a case without fact*" So, here was a case in which the antitrust lawyers made seriously damaging charges against A&P in which the Judge decided'that there were no facts to support those charges. That is why we say the anti-trust lawyers can be wrong and have been wrong. That is why we say that they are wrong again, just as they were wrong in the Washington bread case and the North Carolina potato case. l We are going to show the American people that the suit to destroy A&P it really a suit against efficiency and against real competition. The real question involved in this suit is whether businessmen are going to be encouraged to do a better and more efficient job; or whether we are going to let the anti-trust lawyers in Washington blow the whistle on anybody who gets big by giving the people more for their money. No one can make us believe that it is a crime to try to sell the best quality food at the lowest possible price. THE GREAT ATLANTIC & PACIFIC TEA COMPANY \ \ \
