In 1944 President Rc-osevelt proposed a "bold and daring plan" for ship construction program to extend into 1949, with accent on the building of modern, comfortable, Icw-travcl-cost passenger ships. The U. S. Maritime commission was to undertake study and design ot this program immediately, though thc war was still in progress.
