WPB experts estimated that industrial capacity which last year produced 520,000,000,000 of peace-time goods can be used for armaments by wider application of the conversion plan which already has eliminated civilian automobiles and soon will cut. off manufacturing of radios and mechanical refrigerators, Discussed For Weeks The program may be announced by President Roosevelt. WPB Chairman Donald Nelson will have a part in publicizing it, too. it was understood, possibly giving a radio address explaining it. The new program has been discussed for weeks, but the need of accelerated production now has been highlighted by the fall of Singapore. Experts said $7,100,000,000 was spent for construction last year, and they believed virtually all of the facilities used for this work can be diverted to war needs such i ----- — -~..~~^ «,„ « ludlll ^ as military highways, camps and war . associates that there i« to be flying fields.

To Go For War Purposes Semi-durable an'd perishable civilian goods valued at 343,000 000,000 were produced last year, and facilities which produced approximately $5,000,000,000 of that total will be shifted to war purposes. Facilities for processing chemicals clothing, shoes and food wifl be included among those converted.

There is no more astute and experienced reader of the British mind. His move outflanked his critics. It also tended strongly to reassure alt Britain'* war associates that there i« to be no break in the continuity of British leadership. HAF Has New Hunting Even as he spoke Royal air force bombers were hunting anew m German harbors for the ships that escaped them in the strait ,?Jr-,- pnme minist er found some additional satisfaction in the fact that bombs which miss them now U'JlI fall on German, not French heads. He was satisfied from his own inquiry that all three vessels were further damaged in their for Britain ,,J fhe test ° th ? Churchill theory awn convic- & • rem °V aI °- £ those important Naxi naval umU from Brest to Helgoland has "eased" rather than increased British peril in the Atlantic depends on why Hitler ordered the dash. If Churchill is i-iglH, it W.=.E because Hitler had no hope of ever using them effectively from Brest under a con- tinu?l deluge of British bombs. Four thousand tons of bombs were rained on them at Brest in ten months. Although their escape shows that high altitude bombing against small targets is utterly inefficient, the law of averages makes certain that some of tho=e bombs fell true. German repair crews had to do their work over and over again. Hence Churchill argues thai the Germans decided to take the ships out of Brest, thus sacrificing the strategic advantages of an operating base on the flank of British convoys in the Atlantic. The presence of the ships at Brest had faxed Britich air and sea power to guard against attacks on those convoys. That strain '^-\ beei \ removed by the Nazi flight ana the British can nov ^ k h% S ,°!?^ a A_ bet ^ r ?. is P««?«on worth $5,000,000,000 to $6000000,000, instead of an earlier'esti- mate o£ less than half that amount. Such gigantic goals will require both converted plants and new ones built especially to turn out bombers, tanks and other heavy war goods. At least a quarter o{ the industry is now working on military trucks, scout cars, jeeps, and other vehicles for the' army. Mechanical refrigerator manufacturers have until April 30 to wind up their civilian production and radio factories may be broken up for war uses if they do not shift voluntarily to war contracts within four months. The new program will seek to tie all these efforts together and see that they produce the mexi- mum results. -—-~* iv^i^x.-j in LIIU Atlan- as Churchill drew the picture for Parliament.
