There was much difference of
opinion as to the Boundness of
the principle and "practicability
of price.fixing by government.

been in the past, the policy has
now been adopted as a war meas

can to make it successful. Then,
if we find it unwise or impracti-
livable, it should be promptly
abandoned. Opponents of the
of the ¡policy should generously
acquiesce in it while it is law’ and
its advocates should not adhere
to it unreasonably if it shall be
shown to be unsuccessful.
