Film Boards of Trade: Following complaints received from owners of moving picture theatres, the Department of Justice has during the past 18 months conducted an extensive investigation of the operations of the film boards of trade, with a view to determine whether or not there had been a violation of the antitrust law. ... That this plan as conceived and executed, provides a fair, just and economical method of dealing with disputes is evidenced by the fact that during the past two years 10,325 awards have been made by these Boards and of these only 37 have required reference to a seventh arbitrator to reach a decision.
