At a time when the expenses of the Government are so enormous—
Isn’t it worth while finding o u t the actual facts before plungiug ahead into an
expenditure ot $11,000,((00 of the people’s money for a Government armor plant.3
T o clear up the whole situation, and to put it on a basis as lair and business-like as
we know how to express it, we now make this oiler to the Government:
The B ethlehem Steel C om pany .w ill m a n u fa ctu re a rm or plate for the
G overn m en t o f the United States at actual cost o f operation plus sueh
charges for overhead expenses, interest and dep reciation as the Federal
T rade C om m ission m ay fix. We will agree to this for such period as
the G overnm ent may designate.
The House of Hepresentatives voted down a proposal to empower the Federal Trade
Commission to determine a fair price for armor, and allow private manufacturers
opportunity to meet that price before the Government built its plant.
Isn ’ t ou r prop osition fair and ou g h t it n ot to be a ccepted ?
The measure is now before the United States Senate.
