! Voluntary Codes Set
By Sawyer as Goal in
New Anti-Trust Study
ly the Associated Press
Some voluntary ‘'codes of fair
practice1’ may come out of a broad
new study of Federal policies in
the anti-trust field.
That was one of the major goals
set up by Secretary of Commerce
Sawyer, in announcing plans for
the study. He listed as others:
A reduction of confusion about
existing anti-trust laws and clari
fication for the businesman on
what he can and cannot do legally.
Mr. Sawyer, announcing the
campaign yesterday, said:
“It is my observation, confirmed
by my recent Nation-wide discus
sions with business groups, that
while most businessmen want to
obey the law and try conscien
tiously to do so. there is much
unnecesary confusion at present
as to what the law prohibits and
w'hat it permits."
Truman Indorses Step.
! President Truman himself in
dorsed the idea of seeking volun
tary action rather than swinging
a big stick. The President asked
for recommendations to “encour
age legal and desirable practices,
<and> to discourage and bring
about voluntary abandonment of
illegal and questionable practices.”
Mr. Sawyer released a report on
concentration of production in a
j small number of big firms. It
I showed that in 46 industries doing
a combined annual business of
more than $10,000,000,000. the top
four companies produce more than
75 per cent of all the goods.
Mr. Sawyer said “the problem
of bigness will be on the agenda.”
He was asked whether the cam
paign was undertaken because of
concern over growth of economic
empires or because of a need to
clarify the laws. Mr. Sawyer said
clarification was the major reason. j
Sawyer to Head Committee.
In the study Mr. Sawyer will
head a committee including rep
resentatives of the Justice Depart
ment, Federal Trade Commission
and other agencies which deal
with unfaii- competition, price-fix-,
ing combinations and monopoly.
The Treasury, Reconstruction i
Finance Corp. and probably other
agencies also will take part.
Among the findings in the con
centra tion-of-production report: ;
Three companies make all this
country's aluminum, four compan-j
ies do 95.7 per cent of all business
in the field of telephone and tele-!
grap equipment, four firms make1
91.8 per cent of light bulbs manu
factured, four firms account fori
90.4 per cent of cigarette making. |
Other highly concentrated in-,
dustries, as measured by the per- j
centage of total output contrib- j
uted by the leading four com-j
panies in each, include:
Small arms ammunition, 99.9,
per cent: aircraft propellors, 98
per cent; aluminum rolling and
drawing. 94.2 per cent: locomo
tives. 90.7 per cent: petroleum and
coal products. 88.2 per cent; flat
glass. 88.1 per cent: matches, 82.7
per cent: soap and glycerine, 79
per cent; tires and tubes, 76.6 per
In 130 industries—those in
which comparisons with 1935 are
possible—the study shows that
the degree of concentration has
increased in 58 industries and de- j
creased in 72.
However, among the biggest in
dustries—those with annual out- 1
put exceeding $500,000,000—there,
were more increases of concentra- j
tion than decreases, by a score of!
14 to 9.
Getting Bigger Share.
In other words, in each of 14
large industries, the four leading
companies were getting a bigger'
share of the total business than
they were 12 years before: in nine
industries they were getting less.
Concentration had increased,
the department found, in steel in
$50, $300, $500, up to $10<X>

measure “economic concentration”

on the job
... and off the job
The “spirit of service” is more than a phrase
or slogan to telephone men and women. We see it in
action every day of the year. It may be an
operator making an all-out effort to get an urgent
call through. It may be a gang of linemen
working all night to rebuild a damaged cable line.
You also see it in the interest telephone
people take in their home town. They may
be active in your church or service club.
They help in Scout work, in school associations and
In short, our folks with the spirit of
service are interested not only in better telephone
service, but also in helping to make your
town a better place to live.
