PREFACE

Purpose.—The purpose in making this compilation is to bring together for ready reference the statutes administered by the Federal Trade Commission and the court decisions construing them.

Scope. The compiler's search of the authorities covered the period from September 26, 1914, the date of the approval of the act of Congress by which the Federal Trade Commission was created, to December 31, 1929, and specifically the following:

(a) The commission's records of its court cases for the same period.

6) The United States Official Reports to and including volume 279, U. S.

(c) The Federal Reporter to and including volume 36 F. (2d). (d) The Opinions of the Attorney General to and including volume 35.

A general outline of the material assembled is set forth in the titlepage. To the date mentioned (December 31, 1929), this work contains all reported cases to which the commission was a party under any statute, and all reported cases under the Federal Trade Commission Act irrespective of parties, together with a large number of decisions not heretofore reported, the latter dealing principally with interlocutory matters.

As to the Clayton Act, which is also reprinted in full, the cases herein are confined to those relating to sections 2, 3, 7, 8, or 11, which are the only sections pertaining to the Federal Trade Commission. All cases to which the commission was a party under the statute relate to one or more of these five sections, and are included in this work. There have been many cases pertaining to these sections to which the commission was not a party, but of this class of cases the limited space available made it necessary to include only such as appear to cast considerable light upon the interpretation of the provisions named. Most, if not all, of such Clayton Act cases as are not included contain only unimportant or passing references to the sections administered by the commission.

While the great majority of the cases necessarily arose in the Federal courts, there have been a few in the State courts where application of parts of the five Clayton Act sections above referred to was brought into question. Upon examination a small number of these cases was considered of sufficient importance to be included in the compilation.
