SCOTT W. LUCAS. TLS: "Scott W. Lucas" as U.S. Senator, 1p, 8x10. Washington, D.C., 1946 May 7. To Frank H. Brown, Geneseo, Illinois. Form letter. In part: "Your views on the price control program have been carefully noted. I regret that I must take this means of making reply, but the amount of mail I am receiving on this subject alone is almost more than my office staff can handle...." At the time, the Price Control Bill was being debated in Congress. It passed but on June 29, 1946, President Truman vetoed it, stating that the choice presented was not a choice between continued price stability and inflation but "a choice between inflation with a statute and inflation without one". A second Price Control Bill was written and passed by Congress. On July 25, 1946, President Truman signed the second bill "with reluctance". Scott W. Lucas represented Illinois in the Senate from 1939-1951. He served as Democratic Whip (1947-1949) and Majority Leader (1949-1951) but was defeated for reelection in 1950 by Everett Dirksen. Creased.
