MS President Harry Truman sat at table posing for photographers. MS photographers. CU cameraman.
CU Truman speaking:- (natural sound) "And the way to do it is to have an anti-inflationary programme, including price control, wage control, rent control, credit control, controls that really hold down prices and the cost of living. When some of us have to make a cut in profit or pass up wage increases we might otherwise get, remember we are making a contribution to the peace of the world. The men who are fighting in Korea will tell us it's a very small contribution after all. At a time like this, when men are fighting and dying for our country and the peace of the world, it it wrong for any of up to place private interests above the national interest". (The Speech is directed against communism and its effect on the peace of the world.)
