He cannot increase his income to meet the increased cost of living. Therefore, it should be the ef fort of all to establish and maintain i reasonable basis of prices other wise the government must interfere." The attitude of the corporation on prices, Mr. Gary added, "has had con siderable Influence In preventing in creases in the general selling prices of steel, although some (manufac turers) have made them." "Moreover, it is believed that, the selling prices of most of the diverct fied products of the corporation, for the present at least, are high enough, thoughjt is pertinent to say that when, the actual value of the proper tlea and volume of business of the carporation are considered, the net return Is at least moderate." Reviewing last year's steel strike, Mr. Gary said: Stands for Oieii Shop "We stand for the open shop, which permits a man to work when and where he pleases, on terms mutually agreed upon, whether he does or does not belong to a labor union. "ff do not . combat labor unions as such. We, of course, acknowledge the natural right of labor to organ he; but we insist that a labor organ isation should be subjected to govern mental control and regulation like other organisations. Discrimination by law In favor of or against any particular class is detrimental to the Interests of the general community."
