Utah Manufacturers Association
General Offices, Kearns Building
Salt Lake City, Utah.

Sept. 5, 1934,

RESOLUTION

WHEREAS the State Advisory Committee on Public Welfare and
Emergency Relief of the State of Utah has recently taken official action to establish four mattress factories in Utah for the purpose of
manufacturing ten thousand mattresses for distribution to persons in
Utah, and
WHEREAS there are already established in Utah eleven privately owned mattress factories with a combined output of approximately
sixteen thousand mattresses per annum, and such mattress factories are
tax payers in this State, and,
WHEREAS such government and state owned mattress factories
will be in direct competition with the product of the eleven privately
owned factories now in business and will inevitably tend to depreciate
if not destroy the value and usefulness of such privately owned
factories.
Therefore, be it resolved by the Special Committee of the
Board of Directors of The Utah Manufacturers Association that we
vigorously protest, not against the principle of supplying the needy,
but against the manner in so doing as employed by the State Advisory
Committee on Public Welfare and Emergency Relief, as being destructive to private business and to the working men and women employed
therein and as being subversive of American principle. Be it further
resolved that we urge all similar organizations to make vigorous protests in this matter.
