WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 6. 1941 382,876 RECEIVE DEFENSE TRAINING Surveys in Industrial Cities Show Reserve Labor Army In Courses at Factories NEW YORK. Ausj. 5 The National Association of Manufacturers announced- today a survey of 659 defense industries in 23 cities showed an enrollment of 382.876 men, women, and youths in plant training courses. This reserve army of labor, trained by industry, is being built tip to eliminate any delay in the nation's defense effort. The survey also stated 102.523 men and women were enrolled in summer vocational schools, getting streamlined courses in all branches of skilled labor. The Training within Industry Division of OPM has placed labor requirements at between 1500.000 and 1,500.000 skilled and semi-skilled workers within the next six months. In Pittsburgh, Cleveland, and Hartford, typical defense training centers, hundreds of men in responsible positions are devoting from two to three nights a week to instructing cbsses despite the increasing burden of overwork. Engineering, mechanical drawing, applied mechanics, metallurgical inspection, machine and tool design and ordnance are but a few of the types of training now being oflersd. At Hartford, United Aircraft's Pratt and Whitney Division has built a new school equipped to graduate 1.000 workers every month. Three hundred plants in Cleveland have installed "in service'"- training classes. In the coastal cities, shipbuilders training classes are nearing the breaking point, the survey said, and the shortage of labor for this industry is increasing daily. The government, too, is training workers. At the Mare Island Navy Yard in San Francisco, there are 2.000 men in training and the plan Is to double that number.
