THE PRESIDENT SAYS WE MUST PRODUCE MORE The President, speaking by radio, said “The choice we have to make is this: Shall we make our full sacraifi ces now, produce to the limit, and de liver our products today and every day to the battlefronts of the entire world? Or shall we remain satisfied with our present rate of armament output, postponing the day of real sacrifice—as did the French—until it is too late? "“The first,” the President said, “is the choice of realism—realism in terms of three shifts a day; the full est use of every vital machine every minute of every day and every night; .. staying on the job and getting things made, and entrusting industri al grievances to the established ma chinery of collective bargaining .. The second choice is the approach of the blind... for them there is still ’plenty of time’... And their tomb stones would bear the legend ‘Too late...” In a statement issued regarding Civilian Defense Week, November 11- 16, the President said “Each and ev ery citizen as a civilian must do his share for defense... We must halt the waste and unnecessary use of critical materials required for defense. We must work longer hours... And each of us must be trained in some task that is essential to our total defense.” The President arranged a $1,000,- 000,000 loan to Russia under the Lend-Lease Act. The loan carries no interest. Repayment—partly in ma terials—will start five years after the war ends and is to be completed in 10 years from that time. Observing the 24th anniversary of the Soviet revolu tion, the President telegraphed the Soviet Government “I am confident that the sacrifices and sufferings of those who have the courage to strug gle against agression will not have been in vain...” The Navy authorized construction of 60 escort vessels for transfer to Great Britain under the Lend-Lease Act at a cost of $300,000,000. The State Department announced a lend lease agreement with Cuba involving an undisclosed amount of U. S. de fense supplies for that country and supplies of sugar, tobacco and man ganese in return. State Secretary Hull announced the U. S. transmitted to Finland a peace offer from the Soviet Union with the advice that Finland must give evidence of willingness to dis continue military operations against iiuitj- F€R TELEPHONE USERS In the rush of business, domestic and social duties, the simple little things which must be done to get the most satisfactory telephone service are sometimes forgotten.

The President transferred the en tire Coast Guard to the Navy Depart ment and asked Congress for an addi tional $449,820,000 for the Navy. The Coast Guard transfer gave the Navy 230 patrol and auxiliary vessels and a large number of in-shore and port craft. The Navy reported that during the first 10 months of 1941, keels were laid for 116 new combatant ships, 34 ships were launched and 26 ships were commissioned. The Maritime Commission reported the first three Liberty cargo ships will be delivered the week of November 18. The Com mission has so far launched 148 new ships and delivered 118 as result of its long-range and emergency pro grams. The War Department reported the rate of delivery of critical armament and ammunition to the Army by June, 1942 will be 360 times the rate during May, 1940—when $1,000,000 worth was delivered. The rate, the Depart ment said, increased 40 times by June of this year, 60 times by September, and 80 times by October. The Army announced increase in the rate of training of motor mainte nance officers by four times, battal ion commanders and communications officers by 100 percent, and aircraft warning service men by 900 percent. The Army also reported the rate of accidents in military flying during the past year remained unchanged de spite greatly increased training and tactical flying and use of new and faster ships.

J., and said its action “constituted a fin al disapproval.” Mr. Ickes announced 15 U. S. oil tankers were released from British service during October and 26 more will be released this month. The President asked Congress for $30,000,000 for additional power facil ities in the Bonneville power system because “a critical power shortage in this area is now imminent.” The OPM postponed from Nvember 10 to No vember 17 the planned 30 percent power curtailment for non-defense in dustries in six Southern States. Price Administrator Henderson asked heating and cooking stove man ufacturers not to increase prices a bove October 24 levels and radio and radio-phonongraph combination man ufacturers not to increase prices a bove October 15 levels. He said price programs are being formulated for both industries. The House passed and sent to the Senate a bill which would freeze apartment, house and hotel rents in the District of Colum bia as they were on January 1, 1941. Lessing J. Rosenwald, Chief of the OPM Bureau of Industrial Conserva tion, announced the Government will soon begin a series of continuous campaigns to seek out unneeded household rubber, iron, aluminum, pa per, steel, copper (which OPM said this week was more scarce than any other needed material), lead, zinc, and cotton and wool.

The Brotherhoods had asked for a 30 percent increase for these men. For 800,000 other employees the board recommended an increase aver aging 13 1-2 percent. The increases were termed by the board as tempor ary pending a re -examination of eco nomic conditions in 1943. The rail roads accepted the proposals. The unions rejected them. The U. S.
