Such a law, according Commis

antagonistic to tho Federal statute
but is favored by tho government in
all casos whoro reasonable restric

will permit tho pooling of Interests,

former, and a reasonable percentago
of gain bo marked up on tho wholo
system. Ultimately, according to the
commissioners, it is the public that
