Shipbuilding. "Liberty" ships. Welding is one of the most important advances in shipbuilding during the present century with the torch resulting in immense savings in time, material and weight in the building of ships. This welder is joining side plates to angle frames forming section of the propeller shaft tunnels on a new member of Uncle Sam's Liberty ships, under construction at a large Eastern shipyard which formerly turned out freight cars. The completed sections are then carried six miles to the ways on flat cars. Bethlehem-Fairfield Shipyards Inc., Baltimore, Maryland

Shipbuilding. "Liberty" ships. Welding is more important than ever before in shipbuilding, saving time, weight and steel. This work is done at a nearby plant which formerly turned out freight cars. This worker is welding top plates to angle frames for a merchant ship under construction at a large Eastern yard. All parts are prefabricated in this huge Eastern plant which formerly turned out freight cars. The completed sections are then carried six miles to the ways on flatcars.

America's petroleum industries pour out fuel and lubricants for the United Nations. Oil well derricks on the beach along the coast of the U.S. Pacific coast state of California indicate how thorough is the seach for oil which has been going on in America for more than eighty years. Some beach wells are drilled straight down to reach oil deposits, but others are drilled at an angle so that oil is being pumped from locations far under the sea. Sometimes the bottom of the well is a quarter mile or half mile from the shore, while surf washes the foundations of the steel tower on which the drilling or pumping machinery is placed. The thoroughness and efficiency of the U.S. oil industry in finding new oil deposits accounts for the enormous supplies produced in America for the modern machines of war. In 1944 according to a U.S. oil company official, the predictable U.S. crude oil total will reach 1,601,250,000 barrels
