We must seek a sustained production rate of 1,500,000 new houses a year, not 400,000 or 500,000. In tills way we can progress toward a goal of good housing for all Americans."

But tiieir bomber caught enough flak to "force it down, two of the crew hilled, and the pilot died in Link's arms after the landing. They burned the bomber and scattered. The Japs caught Link. He didn't know about the others. The fact was that Link hadn't dared inquire about the other fellows on the bomber. He had not admitted he was on a bomber which had pasted Tokyo'. There was a rumor around that the Japs were shooting all captured flyers who had bombed Tokyo. Link had kept his mouth shut. The Japs had his name and tag number. That was all he'd (old them.
