Excerpt

The commission agrees that $9.50 per dozen, foreign valuation, represents a fair breaking point for customs purposes between lower-grade hats competing on a price basis and hats of superior material and workmanship competing on a quality basis.

Under section 315 of the tariff act of 1922 there is an undetermined legal question with respect to including transportation expense in estimating foreign production costs. Commissioners Costigan, Dennis, and Baldwin agree that under subdivision (c) of section 315 a fair estimate of foreign costs should include the expense of transporting the foreign product to the principal competitive market or markets in this country.

A dark and disturbing one act play, set in a sinister and run-down saloon in the border town of Mexicali. Three characters--a retarded cowboy, a double-amputee librarian, and a talking horse--discuss their various problems; all the while drinking tequilla.

Some sparkling dialogue and memorable phrases ('You ever try to run a library without arms? Well don't!).

Written by the United States Tariff Commission; a profound and welcome change from their usual dry and boring reports on tariffs and stuff.
