Personal

My dear Governor Eccles*
You impressed deeply every one who heard
your clear, logical talk to the Cooperative Forum last evening*
It is difficult to find words to express how effective you were*
It is a most encouraging experience to find
a man of such intelligence and vision devoting himself to the
service of his country* Your understanding of people, shown
clearly last night, has endeared you to all of us*
Because it expresses some small part of our
admiration, I am enclosing a copy of the thanks to the guest
speaker*
With warm personal regards, I am
Sincerely yours.

Charles T. Ej
Chairman
The Cooperative Forum

The Honorable Marriner S* Eccles
Chairman of the Board of Governors
of the Federal Reserve System

THANES TO TBS GUEST SPEAKER
Cooperative Forum* November 29, 1937

Sometimes it seems that the millions of our people think
only of the power and the glory of the men in high position in the Federal
Government.

They do not realize the nerve-racking strain, the tremendous

burden of responsibility that they must constantly shoulder.

Then, too, most of us are prone to think that Governor Eocles
has concern only with national problems*

Y e should remember that he, with
f

the President and the Secretary of State, must always think of us in relation
to the rest of the world*

If they were once to lose this perspective, the

result would be national chaos*

For this and many other reasons we are all deeply indebted
to our guest speaker for coming to us tonight - in the midst of the rush
and pressure of his duties - and bringing to us an international point of
view*

Surely there is nothing most of us need quite as much, inclined as

we are to a narrowly selfish sectionalism*




Governor Eocles, we can only say, "thank you".
