Cullman Banner, The (Newspaper) - May 9, 1946, Cullman, Alabama XBE CULUfAN BANNER THURSDAY, MAT t, IMS Office Price Administration or Office Peoples Administration O. P. A. created by Congress in time of war was borne by and assisted in its efforts as a war necessity by the American public, the same law creating it fixed its termination date. It is now more than eight months since victory was won. The O. P. A. and its thousands of employees want to remain in office and in power. They and their rela- tives are flooding the Congress with telegrams, letters and propaganda to continue them in office another 12 months. Under their rules and regulations manufacturers refuse to produce the things we all sorely need and are giving evidence to the Congress daily showing that it is impossible and unprofitable to make the common necessities of life at O. P. A. prices. You continue to ask for automobiles, trucks, refrig- erators, electric and sad irons, stoves, ranges, pots, pans, buckets, screen wire, nails, fences, barb wire, roofing, saws, hammers, planters, section harrow, turn 0.

A. is contin- ued another 12 months, it merely means you will con- tinue another 12 months to want these and many other necessities of life. The greatest need of America today is mass pro- duction of civilian goods and mass production by farm- ers of food to feed the people of all nations. This sim- ply cannot be done with the kind of O. P. A. we have had and the kind that wants to hold on another 12 months. We, the undersigned, invite you to call at our stores and sign a prepared petition to your congress to this effect, and we will-have said petitions presented to the Congress by a personal representative. They have ask us to let them know not alone our wishes, but yours, and state that they want to be guided by same when they vote. E. C.. BOTTCHER JACOB UMPHREY C. H. KING V. J. JOHNSON J. B.
