Fletcher, Chairman Senate Committee on Commerce, says:?"Prior to 1914 in normal times the shipping business was one of the most remunerative businesses in the world. Of course during the war we all know that fortunes were mads in a few months. There never was a time when ? change in shipping conditions would be more advantageous than right now. Now is the opportunity to open up routes and get into the shipping business." August Belmont, Chairman of the Board of Trustees of National Marine League and head of the well known banking house of Belmont & Company, says:?"For 20 years to come 7,000,000 additional tons of ships per year will be needed. Dollars spent within the next year will bring returns in the near future beyond even my optimistic calculations." / Hon. Sidney Story, member Advisory Council National Marine League and former manager National Service Section, U. S. Shipping Board, says:?"Now is the time to invest money wisely in the restoration of our merchant marine. Dollars invested within the next year in maritime securities will bring returns to the investors beyond their fondest expectations." Congressman Good says:?"The evidence taken before the Congressional Committee shows conclusively that if the Government Merchant Marine were now in the hands of private owners and was operated only on profitable trade routes the returns would be fabulous." Mr. Rosseter, Director of Operations U. S. Shipping Board, says:?"Here is the case of a ship where, after the United States Government paid the owners the full charged hire established as a just compensation and paid all the expenses of the voyage, the ship made for the Government, in addition, $722,369 in three months and 12 days."
