INVESTIGATING SALE, ETC., OF DAIRY PRODUCTS (H.Con. Res., No. 32.)

Investigating sale. Whereas an audit made by the Agricultural Adjustment Adminis-
etc., of dairy products.
Preamble.

tration has revealed that distributors in four of the largest
milksheds in the United States, for the five years ended Decem-
ber 31, 1933, made a net profit of 25.71 per centum on their net

plant investment; and
Whereas this audit shows the net profits of distributors in each of

the milksheds for the five-year period to be: Philadelphia (dis-
tributors handling 85 per centum of volume), 30,76 per centum;
Boston (distributors handling 75 per centum of volume), 22.45
per centum; Saint Louis (distributors handling 67 per centum of
volume), 14.64 per centum; and Chicago (distributors handling

90 per centum of volume), 25.84 per centum; and
Whereas during this same five-year period the wholesale price of

milk sold by farmers declined 50 per centum, resulting in severe
hardships and suffering to milk producers throughout the United
States and strikes and violence in many rural and metropolitan

centers; and
Whereas the aforesaid audit by the Agricultural Adjustment Admin-

istration has revealed net profits of milk distributors which
tends to establish that similar conditions exist in other milk-

sheds throughout the United States; and
Whereas an investigation in the District of Columbia pursuant to

S.Res. 76, Seventy-third Congress, first session, revealed testi-
mony which abundantly sustains the contention that over a
period of years large milk distributors have attempted to create
à monopoly in the District of Columbia, and largely as a result
of these efforts farmers producing milk for the District of
Columbia milkshed have received low returns for their product
and have been placed at a serious disadvantage; and

to

Whereas the testimony adduced at hearings in the aforesaid investi

gation in the District of Columbia tends to prove that similar
monopolistic efforts likewise exist in other milksheds in the

United States; and
Whereas there is reason to believe that there exists a close tie between

certain leaders of milk producers' cooperatives and milk dis-
tributors, which tie is unbeknown to milk producers and detri-

mental to their interests; and Whereas the continuation of the practices now engaged in by milk

distributors and certain leaders of milk cooperatives seriously endangers the efforts of the Agricultural Adjustment Administration and of the several States to alleviate and remedy the distress now widespread among dairy farmers in the United States, which distress if permitted to continue will result in the destruction of the already sorely pressed agricultural industry:

Therefore be it Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), That the Federal Trade Commission is authorized and directed to Federal Trade Oom

mission directed investigate conditions with respect to the sale and distribution of conduct investigations milk and other dairy products within the territorial limits of the its of United States. United States by any person, partnership, association, cooperative, or corporation, with a view to determining particularly whether any such person, partnership, association, cooperative, or corporation is operating within any milkshed of the United States in such a manner as to substantially lessen competition or to tend to create a monopoly in the sale or distribution of such dairy products, or is a party to any conspiracy in restraint of trade or commerce in any such dairy products, or is in any way monopolizing or attempting to monopolize such trade or commerce within the United States or any part thereof, or is using any unfair method of competition in connection with the sale or distribution of any such dairy products, or is in any way operating to depress the price of milk sold by producers. The Report and recom. Federal Trade Commission shall report to the House of Repre- of Representatives. sentatives as soon as practicable the result of its investigations, together with its recommendations, if any, for necessary remedial legislation.
