For the third time the cry has
gone up that the small business
man in America is in danger of
extinction or of suffering ser
ious financial consequences be
cause of New Deal legislation 01
policy. The so-called small busi
nessman first complained when
the NRA was adopted back- in
the early days of the New Deal
It was claimed that the codes as
set up were favorable to big cor
porations and were in the main
under their control and that tht
little fellow was placed under
soiious disadvantage when it
came to competing with his more
The second complaint came
with the tax provision which
made it virtually necessary that
business concerns pass out the
greater part of thir earning it
the way of dividends. It was
pointed out that this law worked
greatly to the advantage of the
big corporations. It purportedly
greatly handicapped the business
man in setting up a reserve fo
the rainy day, something which
he must have to survive. The
big corporations, with their enor
mous reserves already at hand
it was pointed out, could weather
the storm much better.
These two complaints of the
small business man were taken
care of by the Supreme Court
and by Congress. But now a
third difficulty has arisen and it
is one wbicn has 1o un wuh -.he
defense program. It is pointed
out that most of the defense ord
ers are going to a few more than
fifty giant firms in the United
States and that small business is
being left out on a limb Not only
does the little business man face
the prospect of getting no de
fense orders, but he is confronted
with the Drobability That he will
be unable to get material to carry
on his ordinary business because
of defense priority demands. Fur
thermore, with a lot of durable
goods now to be put on the unnes
essary list because of the de
mands ot defense it is doubtful
! whether he can find a market
[ for his wares even if he manu-j
facturcs them. So it is believed
that many thousand small busi
nss men face the prospect of
stagnation and perhaps ruin, even
in the face of boom towns and!
tremendous government spend
Warning of the danger of pre
sent conditions to small business
men the country over, Joseph W.
Martin Jr., minority leader of the
national House of Represent
atives, recently announced the
appointment of a committee of
Republican congressmen to study
this subject of the perils con
fronting small business today. He
declared that small business is
being deprived of a fair share of
arms contracts and is being stran
gled by priorities as well as stifl
ed by regulations and taxes. He
added that unless present ad-1
ministration policies are reversed!
at Washington the small business-!
man is in danger of being wiped
off the economic map. He adds.
“Surveys show that small busi
nesses employing less than 200
workers comprise 99 per cent of
all business and handle 65 per cent
of the nation’s commerce. The loss
of the major portion of these
would be a great calamity and1
would be especially deadly in the
period which will follow the close
of the war.
“In England after two months
of war, 20.000 small business were
forced to close, and about 20,000
more were about to do so, it was
reported. Now in America the
small enterprises, which have
provided a livelihood for millions
and made possible the prosperity
of the nation, are hanging on the
There is no question that small
business is now facing grim times
because of the difficulties enum
erated above and something
will have to be done about it un
less we are to face a very serious
situation within a year or two.
The New Dealers are great
planners and schemers, but weak
on following theirs plans through
to a successful conclusion. We
wonder why it took so long to get

enit of the painting and decorating

National Capitol? For seven years
as many as 15 employees have been
listed at from $200.00 to $300.00 per
month when no such employees ex

In the Congressional Record, Re
presentative Taber, Rep., N. Y. says
“in the fore part of June the Quar
termaster corps sent out invitations
for bids for mattresses to 30 firms.
On June 18 they announced con
trarts for 150,000 mattresses to cost
$724,000 on those bids. A week
later, on June 25, they let a cont
tract for the same number of mat

bids, or $109,000 less.”
