NEW JUDICIAL BODY
For Trade Is Urged By In
By A. F. of L. News Service.
Washington, D. C.—A recommenda

trade commission, if that body is con
tinued, be limited to the functions of
investigation and prosecution and that
its judicial functions be transferred to
an independent group was included in
a report approved by the Council for
Industrial Progress and made public
by Major George L. Berry, co-ordina
tor for industrial co-operation, follow
ing submission to President Roosevelt.
Holding that there are many diffi
culties involved in vesting both ad
ministrative and judicial power in a
single body the report said the new
body with judicial functions only
"should include in its personnel, be
sides incumbents with legal training,
lay representatives of industry, labor
and the consuming public, and should
have jurisdiction, but not to the ex

The committee assigned by the
council to study the anti-trust laws
and federal commission act was head
ed by Robert A. B. Cook, of Phipps,
Rudgin & Cook, Boston, represent
ing management, and Matthew Woll,
third vice president of the Ameri
can Federation of Labor, representing
Ban on Unfair Work Conditions
The committee found that the pres
ent anti-trust laws are not entirely
potent in preventing many of "the
destructive, discriminatory, or de
ceptive, competitive practices which,
once initiated, tend to become general
under the competitive pressure which
they generate," adding:
"They obstruct the sound function
ing of the competitive system. They
demoralize industry in business. They
reduce purchasing power as a result
of enforced exploitation of wage
earners. They undermine economic
stability. From them flow evil conse
quences which the anti-trust laws
were designed to prevent and others
at least as grave."
