Scott Catalogs Under Fair Trade
In a recent
notice to the stamp trade, Scott
Publications announce that they have entered into Fair Trade Agreements
in every State in which Fair trade Laws are now in force, applicable to
44 of the 48 States. This means an end to price cutting on
albums, and other publications of the firm.

Editor's Note: The Fair Trade Laws of the 1930s were open attempts at price fixing at the retail level "to prevent ruinous competition." Manufacturers established agreements with their retailers to sell at the Manufacturer's List Prices. They notified the states who then would enforce the laws on the price-cutting retailer.
