This Week In
Undersecretary of War Pattersor
in a speech before the Los Angelei
Poet of the Army Ordnance Associ
ation, said last week that "the de
fense stiuation is not nearly so black
as some people try to paint it." Mr
Patterson said the United States ii
trying to do in 18 months what Ger
many accomplished in seven yean
and what Britain "is still struggling
to accomplish after four years" and
"We shalh^do the job and it will
be done in record time. We shall
be hitting our stride sooner than we
had hoped to do?in most instances
a lot sooner. In many instances we
have hit it already. In several we
hit it ahead of time."
Major Genreal C M Wesson,
Army Chief of Ordnance, told an
Army Ordnance Association Chap
ter meeting in Birmingham. Ala
bama that "in point of time we are
at least six months ahead of our
record in the World War. In con
tracts placed we are at least 500 per
cent . . (ahead)."
Later in the week the War De
partment issued a statement that 38
firms fulfilling individual construc
tion contracts on 31 projects in var
ious parts of the Nation are on or
ahead of schedule and Undersecre
tary Patterson said that reports of
rearmament delays due to labor
trouble were "exaggerated" and that
he had no recommendations for "co
ercive or compulsory" legislation to
curb defense strikes.
?opM Engineer Morris
Cook this week made public a state
ment, issued by an NDAC-called
conference of industrial engineers,
urging increased farming out of de
fense contracts The statement said
that "owners and managers of small
er plants have not appreciated the
possibility that their facilities would
and'-should be fully engaged in de
fense production" and recommend
ed that each prime contractor "set
up a group with his own organiza
tion to specialize in the handling of
The statement also urged that sub
contractors who are too small to af
ford the hiring of technical assist
ants obtain the aid of either local or
national organizations "to help them
apply the best management and shop
"A great part if not all of the man
ufacturing machinery of the country,
regardless of age, can be brought
into use," Mr. Cook said
Secretary ?jf the Navy Knox sent
a letter to Commandants of all Nav
al Districts, Navy Yards. Navy Sta
tions. and all Bureaus of the Navy
Department and Marine Corps Head
quarters "To emphasize . . . tin- im
portance of . . . 'sub-contracting' or
farming out' if the Navy is to meet
the continually increasing demands
that afe bemg^ made upon it."
"All hands must come to a fuller
realization of the gravity of the sit
uation and local consideration or de
sires for ideal equalization of work
loads must be sacrificed, if necessary,
in the interest of expediting national
defense." the letter said
