SHIPS WttL WIN THE WAR Buy in Connellsvilie at "The Store With the New Styles First" But 3fen by Thousands Xnst Be Fro- Tided; Wfll Be IB Deferred Clws in Draft While Helping to Build the Skips; EmtknslMtic Men . ITuted. In on appeal to the editor ol The Courier to "assist in the work of recruiting .men for the ship-building yards, Frank B. Lord, assistant to Chairman Hurley of the Unit J States Shipping Board says: "There is oaly way to gef'before the people of your city the real story of present war conditions, and that is through a lull and frank statement to you. . "As Secretary Baker has just said, the lack of ships i» the crux of our problem. It was the lack of ships that caused Fuel Administrator Garfield to issue his drastic order closing j 'the factories of the nation, and 'forced j Secretary McAdoo to issue his embar-1 go on. rail-way freight. I need not point out to you that manufacture will oe stopped again and, again, regardless of the resulting chaos in the business world,-unless we can get sufficient ships to clear the freight jam at the Eastern terminals. 'Whether or not we produce adequate supplies for oar troops in France and for oar Allies is a secondary question as long as we lact, sufficient ships to carry what we have to cross the Atlantic. "Our present program for shipbuilding calls for she million tons a year--and that-is an .ineducable minimum if we are to do our fair share in the war. The Shipping Board has the money, the materials and the | yards to carry out this'6,000.000 t o n j program. It needs the men. To [ build over a thousand ships a year,; as- planned, it must have an immense j reserve of earnest skilled labor to '· '_draw on as fJt as plant is completed in the yards, and housing provided. | The Shipping Board lias {announced; its plan for the immediate creation .of the United States Shipyard Volunteers --a reserve force of 250,000 skilled mechanics enrolled for the service on demand. The Four-Minute Men began the campaign on January 28. It is up to you to keep it" going until every skilled mechanic in your .ciiy knows the nation's vita! need of his services and has had a chance to volunteer. "Tell your people the story--that it is ships that will -win the war. Tell them the need of men in the yards-that earnest skilled labor is the one element needed to assure the success of the Ship Board's program--needed for immediate service in the yards, but as a registered reserve on which definite Individual caJls can be made from, time to time, as men are* required to do definite jobs in definite yards at definite times. Tell them, that the man who ***"i handle a tool can serve "his country:' that he will bn trained in the yards for work.akin to his own trade. -'· Tell them that patriotism calls --calis on' the" most; efficient, the steadiest, the best artisans in America to volunteer; calls on their fellow citizens to value service in the ship- Jards as it deserves and to honor the shipbuilders as they honor the men in the trenches. . . . ' "The Shipyard Volunteers are assured of a generous wage from the day they enter ia a. shipyard. They will also he placed in a deferred class in the drafts as long as they are work- in's on ships. With these inducements, j it should not much appeal to patriot- ] ism to persuade them to enroll; and I yet in many respects patriotic appeal' Is the most important. "The crisis in the nation's affairs should be understood and faced fairly 3 and squarely by the entire nation. The facts should be made public, to the end that those trained mechanics j \rho arc the backbone of every manufacturing business may come foWard to enroll, and that the importance ot their work in^the shipyard may be thoroughly recognized by their present employers. "I believe that when the business; mea in the United States, understand , thoroughly that their plants can work | only on part time, either because of j enforced holidays or because" of rail- j road embargoes, they will be willing to cooperate in furnishing these men. . "I believe also that if the men them- ! selves understand that every one o£ them is assured of continuous employment until these ships are built, they will be more anxious to aid in this work." ·jPHE DAILY COURIER, CONNELLSVILLE, PA. ·WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 13, 1917.
