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. UTAH MANUFACTURERS ASSOCIATION (Signed) J. P. Whitaker President.
