HOOVER, HERBERT. Signature, on a copy of a typed press release "to all editions of morning papers, Monday, June 28, 1943," concerning the introduction of a bill proposing the creation of a federal "Food Administrator" charged with helping to control the inflation of food prices. 1 page, 4to; horizontal folds. Np, nd
Estimate $100 - 200
". . . Inflation in food prices cannot be stopped unless we have a single, responsible head over the inseparable functions of food production, distribution, prices, rations, government purchases, imports and exports. . . .
". . . The continuation of this administrative chaos threatens the food to our cities, the food to our armies, the food to our Allies and the relief of post-war famine--in fact, the whole war effort."
