Why Not Face the Facts
Ahout Armor Competition?
To (he People:
The policy of the United States Government for many years has made real competition la
The Government might have asked the three armor plants for bids and let the entire
tonnage to the lowest bidder. That would have made competition effective.
The result of such a course would have been to drive two of the three manu
facturers out of business, and leave the country with facilities of only one
plant in time of need.
The Government in fact hag always asked for bids from
the three manufacturers, but no matter what the price
quoted, each year's business was divided among them.
Armor makers serve but one customer the Government, just as a public utility
serves but one customer a community.
The solution of the public utility problem is regulation of rates.
The solution of the armor problem is for the Government
We voluntarily agree to accept any price fixed by the Federal Trade Commission.
Isn't acceptance of that offer better than the destruction of an industry built solely
to serve the Government?
