Emphasis on Production Guest of honor at the annual dinner of the automotive council for war production, Nelson said: "From now on the emphasis is on production itself.

"The Japs swept down over me firing machine guns when I hit the water," he said. "They sank my chute. I held onto my 'Mae West' (lifebelt) as the bullets whizzed close. "None of them hit me and after awhile the Japs beat it. Maybe they were out of ammunition." He praised the pilot, Lieut. D. L. Rulison, who gave his life in an attempt to save the crew.
