Anderson Washington — With the nation facing, nay actually entering, an economic depression of unprecedented magnitude, the house ways and means committee is preparing to call witnesses in August on the measures embodying the Townsend Plan. They embody the only concrete program so far suggested by which American business can maintain a home market sufficient to absorb, at high profits, all goods and services produced. Heres' a memo to Congress: Detroit, Mich. —Great Willow Run Plant Closes. k Litjchlield, Arizona — 'Arizona Rubber Plant tapers off. Springfield, Mas-s. — Garand Rifle Plant discharges half. Ft. Worth, Texas—Fort Worth Plant affects 200,000. Gary, Ind. — Big Armor Plate Concern keeps only per cent. Detroit, Mich. — River Rouge halts engine works. : Chicago, 111. — Armored car production halted. : New York—Business needs purchasing power. Adv. WAR LOAN DRIVE Y ES, despite their long months and years of privation and suffering, those gallant men, just released from filthy Jap Prison Camps, still have their good old fighting spiri . They're itching to get back into the fight and give the Nips a taste of tht \r own medicine. Let's show them that we're not quitting either! Lefs match their spirit with our dollars) Lefs make this MIGHTY 7th War Loan the mightiest of them all! But to come even close to matching their sacrifices, everyone here at home must buy War Bonds until it hurts. Buy double or treble the extra War Bonds you've bought in any previous drive. Remember, this is really two drives in one. In the same period last year, you were asked to subscribe to two War Loans. So let"s go, Americans. Our hard- fighting Soldiers, Sailors and Marines are giving their ALL: The least we can do is%0 lend our dollars. ' WAR BOH & . ^ Tbii b an official V.S.
