Dear Marriner :
Here is a clipping from our paper which

presents your

44-hour week suggestion i n the manner you intended*

I used the

material you sent to me—the extract from the letter you wrote to
a labor leader*
Indeed the battle against i n f l a t i o n goes on, but some progress
has been nade i n the form of educating the people to the pe i l s .
•I observe a decided improvement in the attitude of the people
I encounter*
A real smashing attack on the problem would receive
widespread public support, I feel sure.
You are entitled to feel pleased over the results flawing
from your release of the White House memorandum*
As ax a reader of Congressional Record I enjoyed the
episode of the exchange a£ letters between Vardaman and pricker*
I t was plain Var daman expected to receive

Bricker f s applause and

i t must have startled him to get a kick i n the pants instead*
Well you must be having fun even though i t is a mighty
grim and important emus ad e

upon which you are embarked.


me informed of your statements and addresses and don*t l e t m
get scooped on any important news affecting you.
