Marie Callahan, 105 E. 31st St., Brooklyn 26, New York, has forwarded to us some clippings from the Brooklyn Tablet which have a strange storv to tell: John Shaughnessy, 1580 E. 15th St., Brook- |yn, was a civilian employee of the Vrmy Chemical Corps at 180 Varick St., Manhattan, who in 1953 received a certificate of achieve- menl and a $275 cash award from the government for his suggestion to mark all material shipped overseas '*Made in the United States of Vmerica." He is also credited with originating a simplified packaging plan which has saved 17,000,000 feel of lumber and $3,000,000. Late in 1953 he asserts thai his commanding officer told him thai his activities were "embai rassing" to someone unnamed and that he would have to stop his efforts or "seek employ- menl elsewhere." Mr. Shaughnessy, the Father of eleven children, received official notice of hi- discharge fifteen days after Congress lasl adjourned, purportedly as an "economy measure" although the amounl he is credited with saving the governmenl would pa) his -alary for five hundred years. \ecording to the Brooklyn Tablet, "Congress was so impressed [with Mr. Shaughnessy's suggestion to mark overseas shipments "Made in the United States of Vmerica"] thai it planned to pass a bill requiring such markings; bul the Departmenl of Commerce spearheaded the opposition h> the Executive Departmenl generall) and suggested a concurrent resolul - which, it assured, would ace plish the same results. The resolution was passed unanimously by both Houses and is being ignored unanimousl) b) the Executive Department, which instead IN There Was a P.T.A.
