The present shortage, the witness
told the committee resulted from in
creased consumption beyond the ca
pacity of the paper mills. Saying that
increased prices for paper was neces
sary about three years ago, he asserted
that he producers failed to take the
publishers into their confidence at
that time with the result that an agi
tation was started against increased
prices and for public control of the
paper industry. Also the manufactur
ers, he said, failed w expand their
plants due to the lack of understand
ing between them and the publishers.
As a result of this situation, Mr.
Patterson said, when the publishers
came to renew their paper contracts
this year insufficient paper to meet
demands was discovered so that they
entered 1920 with a "shortage of pa
per 0 nevery hand."
Mr. Patterson expressed the belief
that the "universal practice of cur-.
tsilment in the use of paper" which
he said was being observed by
newspapers, would result in " a mar
ked effect on the market by fall.".
But nothing effective can be accom
plished unless there is a definite cur
tailment in the amount of advertise
ments," he said, "and the only way
that can be done is to Increase ad
vertising rates not for the purpose
of increasing revenues but to hold
down the amount pf advertising."

He was granted a summons
against a suitor who, the com
