Army Oversees Security for War Plants
SAN FRANCISCO—One recalls the posters from the Office of War Information (OWI) admonishing, the enemy is everywhere. In June of this year, Nazi sabotage teams landed on Long Island and in Florida; they were quickly captured. In February of this year, a Japanese submarine shelled an oil refinery in Goleta, California, and just two months ago, on September 9, a submarine-based Japanese plane bombed the Oregon coast. Officials remind everyone, especially war-production workers, of the seriousness of security. Security in war production facilities  must conform to the recommendations of the Plant Protection Office of the army, which is based here in San Francisco at the Presidio.
