PLAN CONSCRIPTION OF CUTTING LAKE STEAMERS IN TWO FOR PASSAGE THROUGH WELLAND CANAL LOCKS TO ATLANTIC INDUSTRIES OF U. S. HELP NATURE TO DEFEAT THS DISEASE IN YOUR DODY. TO SUPPLY THE NEEDS OF THE ARMY OR WHATEVER IS NEC ESSARY TO WIN THE WAR. The Government, However, Has No Intention of Taking Action Which Would Cripple Industry. Western Newspaper Union News Service. Washington. Conscription of indus tries to supply the needs of the army was discussed by the War Industries Board with automobile and accessories manufacturers, who pledged their full co-operation to the Government in whatever is necessary to win the war. The plan is to divert a part of each plant to the production of war material. It was made plain to the manufactur ers that while their help is required, the Government had no intention of taking any drastic action which would cripple the industry. It was arranged to have the manufacturers represented in the National Automobile Chamber of Commerce and the motor and acces sories manufacturers appoint a com mittee to work with the automotive products section of the War Industries Board in planning how the big automo bile factories of the country can be of the greatest service. Conference is the first of many to be held with makers of non-essentials as the progress of the war makes greater demands on the country's resources. All such indus tries probably will be called upon to fall in line behind the Government in curtailing the production of everything not making a direct contribution to the nation's fighting efficiency, in conserv ing coal and raw materials and in re lieving the strain on the transportation systems. Business men directing the Govern ment's vast war expenditures have found it advisable to take their work to established factories rather than to create wiiolly new agencies for mak ing war supplies. In this way, it is said, greater efficiency has been ob tained and at the same time industrial organizations built up by private en terprise have been kept together. Cur tailment of production of motor ve hicles was said to have been taken up first because of the manufacturers' vol untary offer of co-operation, because of the highly organized nature of the in dustry and because the problem .of ob taining raw materials, also used in the manufacture of munitions, had become serious for the automobile men.

TRANSPORT ATTACKED EIGHT U.S. MEN LOST TWO SOLDIERS AND TWO GUN NERS SLAIN FOUR MEMBERS FINLAND CREW DEAD. Seamen Drowned When Lifeboat Col lapsesSteamer Is Only Slight ly Damaged By Blast. Boston, Mass. Three members of the naval armed guard, two army en listed men and four of the ship's civil ian crew were killed and a third naval gunner is missing as a result of the torpedoing of the homeward bound army transport Finland in the war zone. Vice Admiral Sim's report of the casualties to the Navy Depart ment added Hio detail to the announce ment that the Finland had been tor pedoed, but had been able, to reach a European port under her own steam. The announcement that five of the men were drowned indicated to offi cials that the Finland's company left the vessel in small boats until it was made certain that she would remain afloat. The capsizing of one of the boats in launching might account for the drowning of the men. It is assumed that two of the armed guard were killed by the explosion of the torpedo and that the missing one probably was blown overboard by the explosion, as was a seaman on the de stroyer Cassin when she was torpe doed recently.
