Excerpt from The American Legion Weekly, Vol. 5: April 6, 1923

The contractor had every advantage on his side during the war, and every disadvantage was shouldered by the Government. Had the war been fought for their special benefit their gain could hardly have been greater, wrote H. L. Scaife, a special agent of the Department of Justice, in a report of his investigation of certain contract ors. But that was during a war upon which we had embarked unprepared. We paid the price. But now the war was over and the blessings of peace had descended upon us. What happened? Well, from the evidence that is avail able, it would seem in certain instances that if these blessings had been ex pressly designed for the benefit of the contractors their gain could have hardly been less.

Of the Claims Board and its method of settlement the majority report of the Graham committee of the House of Representatives says, If he (the con tractor) was honest, there was an honest settlement; if he was inclined to take advantage of the Government he did so.
