Salt Lake City Progressive Opinion (Newspaper) - March 20, 1942, Salt Lake City, Utah Printing publishing vol. No. 8. David Keith bldg., dial Salt Lake City Utah Friday March 20, 1942 published by c. N. Lund $1.50 per year Fate of free Enterprise rests with Small business i economic processes altered As producers seek to beat enemy Competition profit motive relegated to background. I f a j in Iby Baukhage news analyst and commentator. Get these facts before government officials and before members of con Gress before they act his third is to assist group action wherever it is necessary to assist private Effort or. Sheperdson cautiously Points out that he can not solve the individual s problems As such but wherever a group of interests Are concerned or wherever the individual represents a group of Allied inter ests he can and will be of assist Ance. He admits that winning the War is America s first Job. A part of Small business can help in the War Effort and the government can help Small business in this Field by advising the 35 or 40 per cent of Small manufacturers who Are convertible in changing Over their establishments to produce War products. Specifically his Job is to answer an Avalanche of inquiries. This he tries to do in simple straight Forward language. One of his chief tasks is to help the Small manufacturer to answer the complicated questionnaires and to fill out the forms required by All who get government contracts. His division has 31 representatives in the Field talking to Small business men personally. He has 12 consultants in Washington with him. He has also the tremendous resources of the Bureau of foreign and Domestic com Merce of the department of com Merce. And he has the of a group in Congress very much concerned with the plight of the Small business Man and he has the sympathy of Donald Nelson head of the War production Board. Central authority As an example of this sympathetic by the time this is writ ten Congress will probably have approved of the formation of a Hun dred million Dollar corporation of which Donald Nelson himself will be the head so there will be no split authority in War production. This corporation will have the Power to make contracts for military supplies it will see that these con tracts Are let exclusively to the smaller manufacturers who Are Ca Pable of converting their plants to War production. As to the 60 to 65 per cent of America s Small businesses which cannot be converted or. Sheperd son is rendering such Aid and com fort As his Long experience his knowledge of the ability and the shortcomings of the Small business Man and his wide general knowl Edge make possible. Small business says or. Sheperdson is usually managed by one sometimes two and rarely three men. Big business has management specialists who hire brains. Big Busi Ness has research departments. Small business cannot afford these things. Many business men cannot even read Blue prints. They do one Job and do it Well. They May have Learned their business from their fathers. They have Energy and Genius or they would not have succeeded. But they need leadership and Edu cation. Many of them keep no records. As a matter of fact 80 per cent keep none. In most cases the prob Lem they Are facing today boils Down to management. The department tries to help in their education. It is now preparing a business guide and there is not a five Dollar word in it. It does t even mention assets and liabilities. It says what do you owe and what do you own " that guide May Chart the course of Many a Small business through the Stormy Waters ahead and keep the Flag of free Enterprise flying. Incidentally if you Are interested in obtaining a copy i shall be glad request on to or. Sheperdson to pass your inc service 1343 h Street a Washington d. C. The War is placing the United states on a basis of a Cabinet member made this statement in a private gathering in Washington at which i was present 2 few Days ago. He was urging the need for a study of Post a r Condit ions. If we Are going to maintain the principle of free Enterprise he went on we must begin to think now about How we Are going to change Back from a system to the Normal democratic system of individual what the Cabinet officer was get Ting at is this the major part of the Energy of the nation is gradually be ing turned into War production. War production is a National Enterprise. The objective is to obtain the great est amount of armament and other supplies and necessities demanded for the creation o. A huge military machine As quickly As possible. This is an entirely different econom1c process from that upon which free Enterprise is based. Free Enterprise is the production of goods for civilian consumption on & competitive basis at a profit sufficient to encourage the producer to keep on producing. Under War conditions the Only Competition is with the enemy. Prof its May be made by the producer but every phase of his business must be government controlled. The gov eminent already says that Automo Biles or ice boxes or radios or phonographs cannot be made for Ordinary civilian consumption. The govern ment tells the manufacturer what he can have in the Way of raw materials and tells him what he can do with them. The big corporations for the most part a a already on a basis working for the government. Prices Are cont rolled. Big business which is convertible to War production has already been fitted into the new design. Big Busi Ness which is not convertible and which makes an essential civilian product is Able to adjust itself. Small business problems i but Small business faces a differ ent problem. By Small business is meant according to government " definition a manufacturing Plant employing 100 employees or less j wholesale establishments with less than $200,000 annual net sales vol a time retail stores service Stab 1 Lisments hotels places of amuse i ment and construction establish ments with annual net sales or receipts of less than $50,000. I about 35 per cent of the Small businesses of the country of which there Are 168,814 establishments according to the classification of the United states department of com Merce Are capable of conversion from civilian to War production. This leaves 60 to 65 per cent of these Small businesses which employ nearly 25 million men in an exceedingly precarious position. The vast majority of the people in the United states and the officials in Washington believe that Small Busi Ness must be preserved if free is to continue. What s to be done about it well1 spent an hour in the office of the Man selected by the department of Commerce to fight the fight for Small business. It is a very Plain office the Only Wall decorations Are a Cal Undari and a map of the United at the desk sits a Man with hair and a Fine scotch h Burr.

Brandon Bonita progressive opinion a recent convention of a National manufacturing association approved a ninety per cent profit income tax above a minimum exemption desired by Assoc action members a profit income tax should include a tax on the appreciation in credit within monetary and financial organizations incident to the increase in the National debt. The total in circulating and Deposit credit in the u s. Is approximately equal to the present Annua production in consumer production values or sixty six billion dollars. The National debt is in process of expansion by a sum equally As Large and will be effected by a private monetization of government Bonds and repayment pledges. Purchase of government securities by citizens from current income and a tax on the private creation of Public funds can Aid in Public finance and largely avoid inflationary trends. c i take a lesson from him America must win this War.

Louth about some Prophesy i n As much As this paper has said so much about Prophesy we deem it Wise to a a farther word to those who doubt the fulfilment of Prophesy. In doing so we shall quote the Bible and what it says about Adolf Hitler and leave it to the judgment of readers whether or not he has fulfilled the prophesies quoted. 1 urn to Daniel-1 21 and read to the end of the chapter. Verse 21 tells that there shall stand up a vile person to whom they shall not give the honors of the kingdom but come in peaceably and obtain the kingdom by f at t erics verse 22 tells How with the Arm of a flood that. Shall overflow before him rising to Power and overrunning his enemies before they Are aware of danger. Verse 24 Tella of the Conquest of so Many of the countries of Europe making them prey and taking spoil. Verse 25 tells of the trouble with the countries to the South France Holland and Belgium. Verse 26 tells of the cause of the fall of these countries. Verse 27 tells of his Alliance with Mussolini. Verse 28 tells of his opposition to the Church. Verse 29 tells of his War with Greece and Africa. Verse 40 speak s of Russia coming against him like a whirlwind. Verse 45 says yet lie shall come to his end and none shall help tin chapter also tells How he is a Man destined to shake the Earth. Isaiah. Sas in chapter 14 How he will Lay the entire world in ruins and destroy the cities thereof. All these were made More than 2000 years be fore Hitler was born. Life and death by l. M. Million i go in the graveyard and All is so still As still As the tombstones that stand on the Hill. There is Beauty around Here but what i have found Are the still faces that lie under ground. I read on their features the sorrow and care and some More than others the Cross they did Bear. Then i wonder what Hurt them and Why they did die and leave this old world that is filled up with sighs. There is one Over there so old and and so Gray i wonder what life held for her anyway. And there is one right Here so Young and so Small it seems like life for him held nothing at All. I wonder where life comes from and where does it go ? it has always been something that i want to know. Where has the life gone to ? that held All these names it seems such a mystery and something that s strange i stand Here and Ponder and think of it All it seems like a dream that i cannot recall
