T h e need f o r the exercise o f restraint is all-embracing. It applies alike to gov ern m en ta l agencies, national and State, as well as to private institutions and individuals.

T h e banks and o th e r lending institutions o f the country have d em onstrated by their loyal response at critical p eriods in the past that they will stand united with their G overnm ent in the situation that n ow confronts us. Officials o f associations o f lending institutions have called upon banks and o th e r financial institutions to decline to make loans to business or consumers which might be used f o r speculative purposes o r otherw ise interfere with defense requirements.
