America is ready to swing into another great movement to combat
the forces of unemployment, and the program is underway to speed up the momentum
of the business machine. Just how these far-flung plans will be carried out was
described by mayor Herbert H. Stump, chairman of the N.R.A. committee in
“The project quite naturally follows the Blue Eagle campaign,”
he said, “which has captured the imagination and enthusiasm of the entire nation
as nothing has done since the stirring War days of 1917 and 1918. The Blue Eagle
drive, including the codification activities of the N.R.A., has resulted in
placing more than 90 percent of the business of the country under the
President’s Agreement. More than 2,000,000 workers have been reemployed and
millions of dollars have been added to the weekly pay envelopes of those who
toil. All this has spelled tremendous happiness for millions of homes and has
completely changed the economic outlook.
“It must be remembered that this addition to the buying power of
the public has placed burdens on business. Business must be speeded up in order
to make it possible for employers to continue to maintain their added labor
costs. Business must be stepped up to a much faster clip than is the case at
Stump explained the methods by which it is hoped these
objectives will be attained: “The activities will be based on the logic of our
slogan, “Now is the time to buy.” You will note that we are not making use of
the word ‘campaign.’ Our plan calls for a logical, systematic program to be
carried on between now and the holidays with the sole object of stimulating a
well-ordered business acceleration.”
