U LR ICI March 27, 1944 Mr. Elliott Thurston Special Assistant to the Chairman Board of Governors Federal Reserve System Washington, D. C« Dear Elliott: Pack passed through Chicago yesterday. I was in the country and was sorry to miss seeing him, but we had a long telephone talk. He mentioned a statement by Marriner Eccles on the subject of the O.P.A. In some way I managed to miss this, and I would like an opportunity to read it. If it is available for general distribution, I would greatly appreciate a copy. If not and you care to favor me with an office copy, I will be glad to return it promptly. Things are going along here at top speed. I still think that your building is the nicest place to work that I have ever been in, including both facilities and occupants. With kind regards $ Sincerely, mm Mcxrch ¿9, 194-4• Dear Frank: Enclosed is a copy of the Chairman1s prepared statement aimed at adequate continuation of the OP* without restrictive amendments. There seems to be no doubt whatever that the hot will be extended, and the only question is whether it will be projected far enough to cover the uncertain postwar period if needed, as it certainly will be on some items, and to ffend off all sorts of nampering amendments. I imagine the real struggle as to the latter will come in the House. Your allusion to building and, generously, to occupants is much appreciated, ¿orry you didn't have a chance to see Pack, but you probably covered all that was necessary by phone. hith best regards, Sincerely yours, Mr. F. B. Hubachek, 919ftiorthMichigan avenue, Chicago 11, Illinois. Enclosure ET:b
