ployment. The propaganda of the
isig Government advocates said it
couldn't be done, that government
would have to retain fairly rigid
< outrols over everything. They
-.yen; wrong. The private enter-
•iri'.c system achieved new rec-
ords of peacetime highs and there
Was virtually no unemployment.
Other Battles Won
Next came June, 1950, and the
1 Korean War. The government
railed for vast new armament pro-
duction, and the economy shifted
once more to one predominantly
influenced by war and prepara-
tions for war. This time the gov-
ernment asked private enterprise
to expand production facilities so
that an almost adequate flow of
consumer goods could be contin-
ued, averting the need for ration-
ing. And American business and
Industry responded. This was an-
other battle of production which
the private enterprisers won.
With the Korean War ended,
we now hear the complainers say-
ing that production is going to be
overdone, that the markets will
become glutted, that unemploy-
ment will result, and that we will
have another depression. It is my
conviction that the private enter-
prisers will also win the battle for
distribution a n d consumption.
I America's needs are expanding
'swiftly. More than 11,000 new ba-
bies are born everyday—a record!

Winning Production Battles
In 1941, when America was sud-
denly thrust into war, President
Roosevelt called for war produc-
tion quotas which everybody
thought impossible to achieve.
Nevertheless, American enterpris-
ers set to work building planes,
ships, tanks and guns, and new
factories to produce still more ar-
maments. They far exceeded the
quotas. In fact they outproduced
all the rest of the world in arma-
ments, and this achievement won
¡World War II.
Then came 1945, and the war's
end, and the necessity to recon-

efforts of the American people.
