REPORT TO THE NATION
Ninth Installment of MacLeish Statement
It is not enough to produce the
materials of war. They must be
moved, and moved swiftly, by
rail, by truck, by boat to their
destination. A successful trans
potation system depends chiefly
on three factors: first, fixed plant
equipment, which means motor
roads, railroad tracks, navigable
waterways and such things as
terminals, docks and repair
shops; second, carrier equipment
in the form of freight cars,
trucks, buses, barges, pipe lines;
third, the use to which these
facilities are put.
With 246.000 miles of track—30
per cent of the world's railroad
mileage—1,300.000 miles of sur
faced roads, 28,000 miles of nav
igable inland waterways and
310,000 miles of pipe line, the
United States has enough fixed
plant to meet the severest tests.
We are now not only adding
to equipment, but we are making
better use of the facilities we
have. Railroads, which carry 61
per cent of our total freight load,
last year handled 33.000,000,000
ton-miles more than In the peak
year of 1929. To do this, the
loading, unloading and terminal '
handling of freight cars had to
be speeded up; roundabout rout
ings had to be curtailed. The
average load carried by a freight
car was raised nine-tenths of a
ton—a saving in space equal to
26,000 freight cars. Ice-breaking
machines opened the Great
Lakes shipping season earlier
than usual in 1941, This made
possible an all-time record move
ment of iron ore by Lake boats.
More Equipment Added.
* Since September, 1939, the
railroads have added 150,000
new freight cars and 75,000 more
are on order. They have 1,000
new locomotives and another 600
are on order. Trucks have In
creased from 4,600,000 to 5,000,000
in the past year; 4,500 miles of
new pipe linp have been added.
Freight traffic, however, has
Increased to the point where It
is now In close balance with the
carrier capacity of the country.
To care for the added freight that
war will bring—an increase esti
mated at more than 10 per cent
in 1942—new equipment will be
needed and more Ingenuity ex
ercised in using the equipment
we have. The rationing of rub
ber tires will have repercussion*
all through the transportation
system, and may necessitate far
reaching reorganization and co
ordination of all forces of trans
portation. This will be done by
the newly created Office of Di
rector of Transportation.
To more than 300 communitie*
in the country, war work ha*
• brought a serious housing prob
lem. For 15 months 10 Gov
ernment agencies, working un
der the Office of the Co-ordina
tor of Defense Housing, have
been pushing a $792,000,000 pro
gram of public housing construc
tion to provide these worker*
with shelter at reasonable rents.
As of late December, 129,154
housing units had been planned,
of which 63,684 were completed. x
More than 43,000 homes are now
under construction, with another
20,000 waiting on the appropria
tion of additional funds by Con
gress. In the temporary shel
ter field, 8,745 trailers and port
able homes and 11,051 dormitory
units have been provided.
400,000 Privately Financed.
Besides these Government
financed homes, it is estimated
another 400,000 privately financed
houses have been erected in these
same defense areas.
, Lacking formal rent-control
powers, which are part of the
price control bill pending in Con
gress, the Office of Price Admin
istration's efforts to prevent rent
profiteering have been restricted
largely to the formation of so
called “fair rent" committees ip
some 150 defense areas. The
usual practice is for the com
mittee to select a date and pub
lish a statement saying that as
of that date rents were fair.
Complaint* by tenants are in
vestigated. If landlords refuse
to lower their rents, public pres
sure is exerted. In the District
of Columbia where the vast ex
pansion of the Government's war
' activities has resulted in a new
high In the number of Govern
ment employes, rents have been
frozen as of January 1, 1041, by
an act of Congress.
So that the people may know
at all times what their Govern
ment is doing, Information offi
cer* arc attached to each of the
Government agencies. Questions
asked by mail are answered by
the United States Information
Service. In addition to press re
leases, the Information Division
of the Office for Emergency Man
agement Issues pamphlets on the
work of the wartime agencies.
The Office of Facte and Figures
has been directed to "formulate
programs designed to facilitate a
widespread and accurate under
standing of the status and prog
ress of the national defense ef
Censorship Office Set Up.
But It is also necessary to pre
vent any news of military value
from reaching the enemy. To
this end, an Office of Censorship
was established on December 19,
with authority to control all
communications between the
United States and foreign coun
Troop movements will hence
forth be secret even In our own
country, as ship sailings have
been for a long time. Detailed
weather forecasts can no longer
be published, since they would
furnish a timetable for enemy
bombers and submarines. It will
also be necessary to discontinue
the publication of certain in
formation regarding contracts,
the selection of plant sites and
other matters relating to pro
curement and production.
In military and naval opera
tions there will of necessity be
delays in giving fuU reports to
the public. One of the favorite
propaganda tactics of the enemy
is to broadcast exaggerated ru
mors partly to spread confusion
and consternation and partly to
force denials and thus receive
information as to the location
of forces. As soon as the facts
can be told without aiding the
enemy, they will be announced
Though censorship has been
established, it functions on a
voluntary basis, so far as the
publishing and broadcasting of
news within the country is con
cerned. The newspapers and
radio chains have been asked to
exercise certain self-restraints.
The censor feels they have met
the request loyally and whole
