Nation a Year Apo
A report on the amount of alum
inum collected in the National Alum
inum Collection Campaign last year
was made publicjune 19th by the
Bureau of Industrial Conservation.
Excerpts from the report follow:
Collections during the national
aluminum campaign were scheduled
for the period of July 21-29, 1941
Actually, the collection of this alum
inum, which was under the super
vision of the Office of Civilian De
tense, extended over a considerable
period of time subsequent to Julv
According to complete returns
now available, 11,173,979 pounds of
aluminum and other scrap were col
11 i "-a during the campaign. The
amount is somewhat less than was
indicated earlier on the basis of re
prots received from local chairmen
at the various concentration points.
Ttie best relative showing was
made in the New England states,
while the poorest showing was made
in the Southern states particularly
in Mississippi. Georgia aDd South
It was hoped that around 15,000,
000 pounds of aluminum would be
collected as a result of the drive.
Actually, only 0,398,051 pounds, or
57.4 per cent of the total scrap col
lected was in the form of aluminum.
The remainder was largely scrap
iron with smaller quantities of cop
per. brass, pewter and other mater
The reasons for this disappointing
showing are not difficult to discern.
The collection was undertaken by
the Office of Civilian Defense with
out adequate preparation and with
out cooperation of the dealers who
were left entirely out of the pro
gram. Also, the expected results were
based upon two sample drives in
Madison, Wis., and Richmond, Va.
These two particular drives were of
an intensive nature and should not
have been regarded typical of what
we could expect from the country
as a whole.
The delay in the shipment of alum
inuni scrap from the various con
cent ration points to the plants of the
smelters can be traced in large meas
