Gi:N. IIKUIION SO.MEUVKLI, Chief of Army Services Forces Tile offensives launched at the [rout originate in the factories and foundries and on the nssemblv hies. The planes and tanks lha't intler the Axis today, the bombs lhat blast Berlin and send Jar ships to the bottom, come from Ihe lome front. It's something to nember. Remembering It, ive look at the current Second war Loan as an offensive, an intensifying of our iltack on the Mauls' and Japs. I Success on Ihe financing and production fronts are vital elements of success on the battlefield. No war was ever K-OII at a bargain. The kind of victory we have determined to win bears no price _ for un- TCiieler. This is truer today than ever before. We are fighting ihe most highly mechanized war in history. The task of arming and equipping our forces is without parallel. H requires twice as much productive effort lo equip a motorized division as to equip a foot division, and five limes as much to equip an armored division. To the fixed items of equipment, "spot items" must be added — special equipment for special op:rations. The port and dock families and railway equipment rc- liiircd in North Africa me ex-. been on tag. There is no cut rale I conditional sm ainpli'S. Ou lop of this, there must be steady stieum of replacements lo take care of day-to-day wear anil losses. When armored forces clash, the wastage is tremendous. A week of heavy fighting may mean losses of more ihiin one-half the combat vehicles. To make certain that replacements will be at the front when needed, tremendous quantities of material must keep moving endlessly from factory lo battlefield. Shipping depots, (rains, embarkation ports and overseas depots all must lie well slocked, and behind these lines of transportation four lo six weeks of supplies must be maintained lo insure n steudy flow. We call the process "Keeping the pipe line full." H Is a gigantic operation. The Army deals in more than a luilf n million ilems. In lu-ia it accepted more than 5<i,COO eomliul vehicles 000,000 machine guns and M.UOli guns of .larger caliber. Plane onl- pilt Inst year increased 18(1 .percent over 1041. Small-caliber ammunition Is now produced at a rate of roughly a billion rounds a month. Yet matching weapons with me Axis is not easy. We must produce a tremendous volume of shipping a Navy to protect this shipping and additional equipment to re- )lficc losses. of rcqtilrc- ncnls of our maritime program ve can put perhaps one-third of our while vou.' l the Into Axis ground weapons can probnbly dc- of theirs to this Softball League Will Beam Monday Six officers' teams have entered be inter-squadron softball league vhlcli will gel underway at this ost Monday.
