ftOn manitfactuiens could do for the na
tion on short notice; the committee on In
dustrial prep.i redness of the Naval Con
sulting Hoard has received and tabu
lated n satlifylng mass of facts and
The results thus far achieved seem
to confirm the lnltl.il statement of the
commttteo's chairman. Howard 11. Coffin,
that In the twentieth century nations
are defended not alone by fighting men,
hut by fighting Industrie that the life
of a government In tlmo of war reels
more fully upon tho resources of prop
erly organized Industry than upon the
marshalling of troops.
The adaptability of factories mdl
narily producing the most peaceful of
wares Is disclosed In letters received by
the committee In response to Its In
quiries. A button maker thought his machines
could be used for umall munitions work.
A sash chain maker bclloved he could
with little difficulty produce cartridge
clips for rifles and machine guns. A
manufacturer of threshing machinery
was sure he could make fioo six men
shells a day. A maker ot underwear
said he could turn out bandages and
ther knit goods for the army and navy
and the lied Croas. A drug manufac
turing company said It could uee a con-
Idrmble portion of Its product In man-
lug cordite for shells.
Dye Kactorr Can Mrki Fx plosives'
A well known New York foundry In
formed the committee that It was well
equipped to turn out tools and machinery
for small arms and ammunition. A
maker of belting even suggested that he
could produce webbing with which
oaten eoultimcnt on soldiers.
The committee has learned: thai a aye
tctory may be converted In a week or
ten days Into a plant for the production
of high explosives.
A .lluffalo manufacturer wrote: "e
ook upon It as a patriotic duty to fill
out the blank forwarded to us." The
president of n great railroad
analyzed '
the situation In a sympathetic
way. A
maker of pocket knives volunteered to
irodUCS various munition supplies. I
Automobile manufacturers have offered I
every assistance In their power, Bevcral
manufacturers of optical goods nave
pointed out where they could be of iirao
tlcal use to armies in the Held. A
crushed stone compnny Indicated a part
could play In maintaining ood roads
for army transportation. A tailoring
concern pointed out that the production
of uniforms should be fdandardlzcd A i
famous maker of printing presses placed
himself wholly nt the command of the ,
division of the committee which Is Inid.iy celebration. Members of the naval
charge of the CVew York fllnte Inventory,
nna a great municipal transportation ,
system appointed Its chief engineer to
work with tho committee.
The head of a great woollen mill
wrote: "The constructive policy of the
committee Is surely the only means by
which true rreparedness can be arrived
at." A leading manufacturer of form
Implements offered to find out how hla
plant could be used for military pur
poses A maker of chocolates, Important
to modern armies on the march, had
definite views.
Map Department Available.
A firm whose members bear Oennan
names wrote : "We would be delighted as
American citizens to do whatever we
can to take part In any Industrial pre- ,
paredness which may be planned. One j
of the largest printing establishments I
In New York offered the services of Its
map department. A linotype company
said that It had many lathes, tlrllls,
milling machines nnd other tools adapted
tc tho production of nhells, fuses, ma
chine tools and small metal parts of any
kind requiring extreme precision.
An up-State corporation now moKlng

when It got from an ore company a
letter saying: "Our executives are all

A celebrated firm of manufacturing
chemists delegated Its chief chemist to
help the committee In every way A na

to cooperate fully. A manufacturer ot
dtop forging offeted to study his plant

Production. A fountain pen manufac
turer whose name everybody knows said
he would Hnalyze his equipment for
the same purpoMe.
The committee hoped to finish this
lnentory the preliminary Job by July
1. but the response has been so much
larger than It expected that It Is likely
to take all summer. Chairman Cpfrm
said yesterday:
"A few nianuracturem have dnutite-l
tho ability of their plants to aid the
Oovernment In war time. They hae
almost Invariably changed their views
when shown how llttlo doubt there Is
that on the outbreak of war practically
all concern not engaged In the lines
of work essential to the national needn
would be stripped of their labor, either
for the army or for manning other In
dustrial plants vital for the supply of
such needs, and that In the event of
hoKtllltkn probably SO per cent of
American Industries would of necessity
be concentrated on producing tho myriad
elements of twentieth century warfare.

State directors have reported to Mr.
Coflln that nil elements of business Ufa
agree with tho wisdom of the committee's
plans for establishing nnnual "educa
tional" orders In small quantities for
munitions of war. Tho lde Is to teach
each manufacturer to turn out In time
of peace some ono war commodity beat
suited to his output Mr. Coflln s- Id on
this point:
"Not only will the adoption of this
plan be a mighty protection to the
nation, but by actually creating hundreds
of new sources for the skilled, swift nnd
abundant production of war munitions
will lay for nil time the ghost of tho
ammunition trust. This programme will
do moro than thar It will spread tho
munition producing units, which one day
will be so vital to our continued ex
istence at a nation, over the country and
nwny from tho unprotected seaboards.

Dr Charles F. tlolduan. director of
the bureau of health education, an
nounced )esterday that twenty-four
cases of lnfantllo paralysis were being
cared for by the department In Brook
lyn. Fourteen cases are In the smalt dis
trict lying between Henry street nnd
Seventh nvenun and Baltic and Klrst
streets. Four new cases were presented
yesterday In Third, President, Do Oraw
nnd Sixth streets.
In addition there are lliw cnt
tered cases In Williamsburg, two In
Hay llldge nnd ono In Pro)ect ave

the department the oases nre mild nnd
confined to Infants and small children.
No two rases have been found In the

This Is the first outbreak since 190,
where moro than ono Isolated case has
been reported. During that ear the
city wan beset b more than 2,r.O0
cases of a disease Unit was then little
known to medical science. It was during
that year that working knowledge of
Infantile paralysis was discovered.
The Health Department holds no
fear that this outbreak will develop
Into any recurrence of tho epidemic of
1JI07 and the situation is ealii in oc
fully under control. The department
requires a minimum quarantine of sU
weeks and also Insists on the exclusion
from school of other members of the
family In which tho disease exists.
Tho germ of Infantile paralysis has
never been discovered by mrdlc.il men,
although Its existence has been noted In
many experiments. The germ Is thought
to be Infinitely smaller than n typhoid
gi rm, for It will pass through a porcelain
lllter, such ns Is ucd to apprehend the

caught. He ate game, fiah, berries nnd
wild vegetables, and when he .wanted to
cook the food he snatched from the
wilderness he made fire by rubbing two
pieces of wood together or In another
primitive wny.
Mr. Knowles, ho has been called the
Primitive Man sltue his outing In Maine,

pieselng It between heavy layers of
bark. He will make water colors from
berries, barks and roots, and his brushes
from the fur of animals.
