By Nathan Robertson Washington la a the daily newspapers have almost completely ignored one of the biggest stories that has broken in Washington recently the drafting of legislation to break up the giant monopolies into smaller companies. It also has ignored another big Story that the experience of the securities and Exchange commission in dissolving the huge Public Utility holding companies has resulted in a let in break for the stockholders in those companies. Their securities Are Worth much More today than they were 14 years ago when the Law was passed ordering them broken up. There is a close connection Between these two stories which the daily newspapers have played Down. Both stories were broken by the Celler committee of the House which has been investigating monopolies. And the new legislation a for breaking up the big Industrial giants a is a direct copy of the legislation enacted by Congress 14 years ago which has been so successfully operated Good of the country in other words the Celler committee now has legislation a a based on 10 years of successful government experience a for breaking up big monopolies into smaller companies for the Good of the country and even for the Benefit of the stockholders in these companies. This is rather big news even to a hardened old Washington correspondent. But it did no to get into the newspapers at least the newspapers most of us read. It was important enough to be thoroughly covered by the financial and Trade papers that businessmen read. They know All about it. But the Public which would Benefit most if the legislation were enacted has not not seen told about it.

But they preferred to write their stories not about this Bill but about the testimony of other witnesses the president of one of the big insurance companies who denied of course that there was any danger in big business and warned the Federal government to keep its hands off the insurance companies. There Wasny to any real news in this big businessmen and insurance men had been saying the same thing for Days. But the reporters knew what their papers preferred and they wrote their stories that Way. Just As one example of How the press handled the Story which broke before the Celler committee dec. 1�?is typical. The Washington posts Lead said a president Thomas i. Parkinson of the equitable life insurance co., urged the Federal government yesterday to keep hands off the insurance the Post Story then went into detailed coverage of what Park cont med on Page 41 Eubanks will speak briefly at which starts .
