Conversion. Food machinery plant. Back to aid in his country's war effort is Phineas Davenport Allen, seventy-eight-year-old mechanic who worked on steering riggings for submarines during World War I. Today he is employed by a New England company, whose normal peacetime product is cube steak machinery. The drill press he operates was a valuable part of the company's peacetime equipment, is even more valuable today in the speeding of work on war subcontracts. Here Allen is drilling bearing caps for cube steak machines. Cube Steak Machine Company, Boston, Massachusetts
