Running 24 Hours a Day Urged
WASHINGTON, D.C.—Chairman of the War Production Board, Donald M. Nelson, last night reiterated his call of last week that production levels need to be increased by twenty-five per cent. Nelson went on to say that production could be double by running all existing facilities in war production twenty-four hours a day for seven days a week. He indicated the two ways to achieve the needed output are “the American way” and “the way of bondage, of force.” To achieve victory through the American way, Nelson emphasized that production must be increased daily. Nelson also announced in the address that industries will need to being submitting monthly reports to the WPB on conversions to war production.
