To the Editor:
   The American Century began with Roosevelt and Taft breaking up cartels. They understood that the consumer is as important to our economy as the supplier. Now, the collusion has moved from railroads to airlines. But the challenge to our prosperity is the same, and the same remedies are at hand. If the members of International Air Transport Association are colluding to fix prices and discriminate against whole classes of travelers, they should be prosecuted for anti-competitive practices.
