Park Row Building Room 2400 New York City -a ttockAWAY After JAMAICA BAY By W. S. Gifford, Dire tor of the Council of National Defence. THE Inevitable effect of the demands of war Is to force an Increase of In dustrial clllclency In two directions. It demands elimination of waste and at the same time demands an increase In production. In time of peace our country's Industrial plants and the producing facilities of the nation are engaged In supplying the needs of the civilian population. The efficient operation of Industry means a large production of commodities for consumption, or. in other words, a high standard of living for the public Now over a million and a half of our men have been taken out of Industrial and productive pursuits and recruited into tho army or navy, who aro thus still consumers but no longer producers. Furthermore, many millions of those left at home must produce munitions for our fighting forces Instead of producing commoflitlcs fur civilian consumption. deduction In civilian consumption by tho elimination of unnecessary luxuries will help to mako It possible to supply our military needs. If the standard of living Is not to be serloir' lowered, however. It Is obvious that those engaged In tho production of essentials for the support of tho civilian population must produce moro than ever, and In order that tho number which must be taken from ordinary production to manufacture munitions shall be as few as possible munition workers must produce their utmost. In other words, If we are to supply the men for our fighting forces, the men, machinery, raw materials and transportation needed for munitions, and at the same time enough necessities for civilian consumption to keep a fair standard of living, our industries must become more efficient than ever before. Waste and unnec essary processes must be eliminated from industry. Industrial leaders must, more than ever before, givo their time to serious study of the problem of in creasing production. Inelllclent plants must be mode efficient. Plants producing commodities of a lesj essential nature for civilian consumption must prepare intelligently against tho possible need to convert their efforts to cither producing munitions of war or more essential articles for civilian use. Manifestly It will bo a more effective, utilization of both man power and plant to convert existing facilities and existing Industrial organizations to war work rather than to create entirely new plants and new organizations. It usually requires moro time and expense to build anew than to remodel the old. It should bo the duty of every Indus tilal leader to give his thought to the problem as to how his own plant can be most effectively utilized in the winning of the war. Not only patriotism but enlightened self-interest demands of Industry that It exert every effort on Its own Initiative to meet the task effectively. No Industrial leader should wait for his plant to be drafted into the nation's service. He should reallie that responsibility rests upon htm to prepare, so that when a request Is made upon him by tho Government to modify tho operations of his plant he will be, as far as possible, rrepared. Many of our Industrial plants have already joined the fighting Industries. Many more will have to do so. Many working on less essential tasks may have to adjust themselves so that their production can be of a nature vital to tho country's needs. 550 Acres on Flushing Bay East River 4000 FEET OF DEEP WATER FRONT, Vz MILES FROM HERALD SQUARE Ideal for Shipbuilding or Large Manufacturing Plants Long Island Pennsylvania R.
