Addressing the United States conference of mayors, Rayburn announced the formation of a special house committee on post-war fact finding to accumulate information, recommended policy anc propose legislation. As ' "consultants," he said, the committee would call-in officials of the federal government, ani for "agents in the field" it would depend "primarily on you, the mayors of this nation's cities, on governors, county agents, laboi and agricultural organizations, ant business groups." Rayburn said the committee would serve as a people's planning board by drawing into a common pool vital facts on conversion, reemployment, allocation of materials, public works, foreign trade, release of surplus war commodities, and the postwar value of existing laws. Urging all groups to "get into 2 year old Texan spoke in terms] loth of warning and of hope. He said if the nation bungled he postwar job--"If we allow the pectre of depression to rise once more"--the people would eventually turn to a strong centralized ;overnmont. "What then?" he asked. "Will .he American people be so fortunate as to find another man as ereat, as democratic minded, as Franklin D. Kooscvelt to lead them through the crisis? Or will the 'man on the horse,' the 'man with the iron fist,' seize controls?" Turning, However, t o t h e "astounding accomplishment" of the nation's war program, he demanded, "who now will say that there is anything we cannot do? "Who believes that there is anything impossible for 135,000,000 people applying their skill to the vast resources of this continent?' j He said he chose the conference of mayors to announce his proposal because "no gi'oup of publi men in the United States is-more intimately concerned with the problems attendant on the return of industry to peacetime production and the re-employment o men." "This is a heartening meeting,' he declared. "It proves that \vi p not intend to bring our sol iers back from the agonies o oxholes and plunge them into th leartaches of unemployment." He said that reduced to simple; :erms, the problems of tomorro^ consist of 3 component parts-men, materials and tools.
