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

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.
