In line with this policy Mr. Daniels

Urges Praweetile Plant.
The necessity for the erection of a
projectile plant was described by Sec
retary Daniels as urgent "if the ships
of the fleet are to -be bept supplied
with fourteen-inch armor piercing
sbells." The manufacturers had to be
constantly increasing their prices for
shells of all kinds, he said, and have
finally arrived at the point at which
they refuse to bid at all upon the.
specifications laid down by the depart

Specifications were sent out to more'

Cites Reactions.
As a further illustration of the advan
tages of government manufacture, Mr.
Laniels cited the reductions that had
been brought about in the price of
powder as soon as the government plant
had been established. The private manu
facturer at first demanded S1 a pound.
he said. This was reduced to So cents
when the government began to manu-,
facture it. Now, he added, enough is
manufactured by the navy for its needs!
in time of peace at a cost of 21 cents a
pound, 34 cents with the overhead
charges, interest and such items, and
the price in the open market is 53.
"The difference between 53 and 34 cents
in a program of preparedness," he ob
served, 'is well worth saving."
