Women in industry. Gas mask production. The grim realities of war are brought home to this twenty-one-year-old worker in a Midwest vacuum cleaner plant which now makes gas masks. It's her job to wire and tape the outlet valves of the masks, which are delivered to her by a moving conveyor belt. Eureka Vacuum, Detroit, Michigan

Women in industry. Gas mask production. She used to wrap bread in a bakery, before Pearl Harbor, but today twenty-one-year-old Eugenia Bireta is a qualified government inspector who tests gas masks for "eye leakage" on this pressure gauge. She's one of many young women employed by a large Midwest vacuum cleaner company now converted to production of gas masks. Eureka Vacuum, Detroit, Michigan

Women in industry. Gas mask production. Formerly employed in a vacuum cleaner plant, these young women are now making gas masks for America's soldiers and civilians. Margaret Reed, left, who used to work in the vacuum brush department, now operates a precrimping machine which attaches eye rings to the mask proper. Note the "V" chalked on her machine. Eureka Vacuum, Detroit, Michigan

Women in industry. Gas mask production. Lacing head harnesses of gas masks after they have passed through all the stages of assembly and made ready for packaging, is the job of this young woman who works in a large Midwest vacuum cleaner factory which has been converted to war production. Note the lei of string she's wearing--the better to lace the masks with! Eureka Vacuum, Detroit, Michigan

Women in industry. Gas mask production. Formerly a beauty shop operator, blonde Marjorie Karwaske finds that the dear dead days of bobby pins and curler clamps have left her with skillful, speedy fingers and a natural tendency to eliminate wasteful hand movement. These are invaluable aids to her job at a Midwest vacuum cleaner plant which has been converted to the production of gas masks. Those skillful fingers fasten eye pieces to the bodies of gas masks. Eureka Vacuum, Detroit, Michigan

Women in industry. Gas mask production. Don't let their youth and good looks deceive you, these two young workers are actually full-fledged government inspectors who are employed in a converted Midwest vacuum cleaner plant to test gas masks. Every one of the hundreds of rubber masks that move along the assembly belt each day must be thoroughly tested by young women inspectors who put the masks through many different tests. Eureka Vacuum, Detroit, Michigan

Women in industry. Gas mask production. Flower in hair, Betty Gumbetter adds glamour to the assembly line of a Midwest gas mask factory which formerly made vacuum cleaners. Operating a riveting press, which attaches cloth tabs to the face pieces of gas masks, this young worker is one of the many company employees who switched over from work on vacuums when the plant was converted. Betty likes her new job better than the old one. "It bears a lot more relationship to my American Women's Voluntary Services work," she says. Eureka Vacuum, Detroit, Michigan

Women in industry. Gas mask production. The finished gas mask face pieces in the foreground were just flaps of rubber without eye pieces, outlet valves, straps, tabs, and other accessories when they started on the long moving belt at the far end of the line. By the time they've reached this end, however, a hundred pairs of hands have worked on them, machining, clamping, riveting, testing, and inspecting each one until the completed masks are packaged in the final stages of production. All this activity takes place in a Midwest vacuum cleaner plant which has been converted to war work. Eureka Vacuum, Detroit, Michigan
