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 tne 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."

Acceptance of "fair prices by the department of Justice was defended today by At torney General Palmer before the house Judiciary committee which is investigating his agreement with Louisiana sugar growers that 17 and 18 cents would not be considered an unfair maximum price for their pro duct. Mr. Palmer declared that the ac ceptance of the "fair"- prices was "not fixing a price but the exercis ing or tne lawrui discretion in an nouncing what the government would regard as a violation of the law." "For anyone to say such action was a violation of the law," said the at torney general, "show a lamentable Ignorance of the lilw. If I am guilty in- Louisiana then I am guilty else where throughout the country with respect to all necessaries and there is plenty of room from the records of the department of Justice to find me guilty." - . "Fair prices," he continued, "were determined by the fair price commit tees," organized last fall throughout the country. - The committees he de scribed as the "weapon of the public" for fighting rising living costs.
