I ^4% 7* Production Of Tanks To Be Doubled Soon "Washington, Oct. . 24--(AP) Withholding all figures. President Roosevelt announced today that the American program for producing tanks for United States armed forces would be approximately doubled at once. The chief executive told a press conference that the projected expansion was part of an over-all revi- | sion of the defense picture. But the rest of it, he aaid, will not be ready until later in the fall or perhaps when congress meets for a new session in January. Mr. Roosevelt would not say what the present tank program called for nor what the increase would provide. That, tic asserted, was information which the Axis would like to have. ' It does · call for many thousand more tanks, he asserted, along with certain items or ordance relating to them. The principal reason for the decision to make a tremendous increase in tank output, the President disclosed, grew from the experience in the use of tanks in North Africa last year. Some new plants probably will have to be built to turn out the enlarged volume of tanks, Mr. Roosevelt declared, while factories now making them will have to step up their operations. SPEAKS AT Y.
