I Nevertheless, literally millions v.ere put to work and many a skimpy, starvation wage was raised to decency. And test of all, tens of millions of Americans were set lo thinking. They were made to re- allzr that their business, their job, dcp'"ds on thi welfare of all. You hoar t:is Discussed wherever men gather—the smoking-car story i.tftaily has been replaced by the economic forum. And when you get millions ot American brains concentrated on finding a solution to cur common problems instead of on the stock market and the farmer's daughter, you've done something. The Chiseling Begins But when [the first fine frenzy died, the chiseling:, began. I believe chiseling has been much more widespread loan optimistic compliance board reports indicate But this is a guess, for no one knows and no one ever will know- how much chiseling there has been under the blanket code. I have been able to find aa evidence nf a single firm actually forced out of business by increased costs under any code. Many employers protested that they could not pay such vages and continue business. Though I inquired in every town I visited, I could not find one who actually gave up. The Dun and Bradstrect fif- nres for JS33 on business failures seem to bear this out—they run for 1333 about half of those in I9S-2. Neither r.ave I been able to fiiKl nny evidence that refusing to cooperate in the Blue Eagle drive lee to the "economic death" threatened by General Johnson. Tr.e public, in my opinion, largely refused lo back up the Eagle i tr:is meant spending a few cents more in patronizing an Eagle establishment. Ford, the outstand !ii- ictel ajnii:!:! Ihe Blue Eigle sold more cars in December thai for years. The Codes I believe thousands will seize thi end cf tUeir presidential agreemen 'Dec. 31 last) as a chance to duck out of trcir responsibilities undc: the blanket cede. No one can di anything about thot. It is thci right. But even Ihls won't matter much For tr.e permanent codes arc being adopted so fast that by tte tim. compliance under the blnnkcl cod' dwindles to almost nothing, as i will, industries will be so complete ly covered by permanent cede- that there will be no letdown, an the gap will be bridged without murmur. The permanent codes arc horse of another color, f bclicv that here the benefits arc so grea and so unquestionable that nian of them will remain after the in Its present form is forgotten, fo these codes have changed tlie en tire face of American business. The evidence here seems bcyon question. jy\\ and lumber conser vatkxi, dreams of three decade became realities overnight by agree msnls among producers to sto wasting natural resources and cea: profitless, throat-cutting compel Hon.
