Transcript of Trade Practice Conference on Fair Methods of Competition. Myers hopes to concentrate on public accountability and self-regulation, but distributors and exhibitors approach each other with mutual hostility and suspicion. Block-booking is the major sticking point. Reform of Uniform Contract and theatre acquisition by producing companies are also raised. Producers offer as a resolution a list of "Don'ts and Be-Carefuls." (See categories "meetings" and "standard contract" for evidence that industry representatives carefully planned their combined approach to this conference.) Typescript of whole document totals 429 numbered pages.
