Text: OUT COUNTRY NEEDS SHIPS to carry our boys "Over There" and keep them well supplied with Food, Clothing and the Munitions of War. The product made in this plant is used for building shops. The shops can be completed only as fast as the material and equipment for each ship arrives at the shipyard. If every man does a better day's work every day, the ships can be built faster.
