The stabilization director, in a fighting speech prepared for delivery before the annual convention of the National Fawners Union, declared: "The. next few weeks represent the Guadacanal, the Okinawa and the Stalingrad in our fight to main tain a stabilized economy. To lose this fight will mean disaster. To win it will pave the way for a future of sustained prosperity for all of us." Depends on Congress. Whether the fight is won or lost Bowles said, will depend on deci sions in Congress during the next 90 days as to whether to extend price control through June, 1947, continue food subsidies, allow OPA and other stabilisation agencies "sufficient funds to carry out their enormous responsibility." And, he said: "Congress must decide whether we shall move vigorously ahead to build the homes millions of veterans are looking forward to at prices, or whether we shall continue to fumble with the housing crisis in the name of reaction and narrow, selfish interests." Stating we are "on the eve of a crisis which cannot be exaggerated," Bowies declared that on one side of "battle lines being drawn ... w? have all the millions of inarticulate little people who have made our country great in the past and on whom its future depends." "Opposed to them," he continued, "are some of the most irresponsible, reckless, greedy organizations in America. Names Lobbists. "(<et there be no question about whom I am tajking. I am talking about the lobbyists of the National Association of Manufacturers. , I am talking about the heads of the National Retail Dry Goods Associa tion with all the_phony propaganda with which tbey seek to cash in on the apparel shortage. "I am talking about some of the real-estate lobbies and your old friend the packers' lobby and the textile lobby. I am talking about the dairy lobby. "I am talking about those lobby ' ists who haunt the Washington hotels and the balls of Congress and the governmental agencies, endlessly scheming and plotting to trade the interests of the great majority at our people for the narrow short range profit of the groups they "And finally, I am talking about these speculators in the commodity markets and those speculators in Wall Street who time and again have played the American public for suck ers m their promiae of speculative profits from stocks and securities, and who today are again irresponsi bly whooping it up for inflation. "These people do not repress business, x x x they represent only themselves, x x x They are out to eliminate or wreck the only con trols which stead between oar peo-, pie and inflation." Between now and June, Bowles as serted, derisions must be made' in Congress whether "we are 'to stable prices and rents; whsthe savings and insurance policies are to be protected; whether our bends as* to be worth the money we paid for them; or whether we are to start down the primrose path toward another teflon whi*h will surely bring disaster to our economy and sweep away the life ssriags of the tens of thousands of our peopled This poses "one of the most fata, ful derisions in ti tory of our nation, chief said.
