Dear Mrs. Petersen: I have read your letter of February 25 and agree with you that there is plenty of room for reformation in the habits of our people. I think, however, that you have been grossly aisinformed about Mr. Bowles and many of his staff in OPA with whom 1 am acquainted. It is a thankless, difficult job but I do not know any group of men who have tried in a more disinterested way to carry on this necessary fight against the evil of inflation. They undoubtedly have made many mistakes and Mr. Bowles has always been frank in admitting the difficulties of administering price controls. I know that he is doing all he can to correct inequities*. I know that he serves at a great personal sacrifice and would welcome the day when it would be safe for the eoonony to do away with the OPA altogether. I am venturing to enclose a brief discussion of the problem which I presented in a prepared statement to the Bonking and Currency Committee of the House last Monday. Sincerely yours, M. S. Ecoles, Chairman. Enclosure ET ;b
