Noble, newly appointed Assistant to Secretary of Commerce Harry Hopkins, told newsmen that he thought the key to recovery was to increase business volume.

Subcontracting aircraft parts. These are aluminum flaps for military aircraft. The workers are in one of the canvas covered shops created in a former airship dock. The shops are enclosed to facilitate heating, since it would be impossible adequately to heat the entire air volume of the building, which approximates 45,000,000 cubic feet. Goodyear, Akron, Ohio

Goodyear, Akron, Ohio

Steel production. Smoke and steel. A black furnace stove and a belching boiler house stack help swell the volume for victory. Republic, Youngstown

Subcontracting (Braden and Van Fossen Works). The speedy equipping of the armies of democracy depends upon using effectively and immediately the skill of thousands of men in shops such as the Braden and Van Fossen Works, in Staunton, Virginia. These are special jigs and other tools made up in the shop since Pearl Harbor, all of them to speed production on small war orders. The volume of such orders is much too small, and the shop is even now idle much of the time, but it is just such ingenuity as these men are showing which will mean adequate war production

The luncheon was arranged on November 6, 1942 in the Social Security Building by Lee Marshall, Food Consultant to Mr. Nelson, to acquaint war agency officials with the progress that has been made in this country in the field of dehydrated foods. Such dried foods result in savings of up to eighty percent in volume and up to ninety percent in weight

Bantam, Connecticut. Bantam is hoping eventually to get a new post office and town hall. The town burgesses meet above the post office, while the rest of the second story here is given over to a little-used basketball court. Postmaster Edward M. Doyle, who is not related to James L. Doyle, the town warden, has run out of defense stamps more than once, for Bantam is buying bonds and stamps in large quantities. The volume at the post office has risen considerably in the eight years Doyle has been in charge, his own salary going from sixteen hundred to twenty-one hundred annually in that time. He's especially proud of the consistently excellent ratings his premises are given by government inspectors

Three-inch A.A. cartridge cases. Antiaircraft cartridge cases are unloaded from a stress-annealing furnace which has made them soft, uniform and ductile, ready for succeeding machine operations. The big Midwest plant doing this work is ideally equipped for volume production of war necessities like these cases

Bantam, Connecticut. Much of the food that is served in Bantam homes is bought at the local First National Store, part of New England's leading food chain. Manager Charley Dempsey, who admits that he sometimes takes off his hat when sleeping, hopes soon to get a larger store with a full line of meats, but is worried about the difficulty in getting meat cases. He's very pleased about the increase in his business, which has meant larger weekly checks for him, and has increased his staff from one boy part-time two years ago to three full-time and one part-time now. He looks for an even greater volume when the second forty units of the new housing project are completed. Charley, who was in the Army during the last war, and all his employees are natives of Bantam. The main difference rising food prices have meant to Bantam housewives, says Dempsey, is that whereas they used to order without bothering to ask the price, they now ask the price, then say what they want

America's petroleum industries pour out fuel and lubricants for the United Nations. Men at the wheels of large valves regulate the flow of oil into oil tankers at a U.S. Atlantic coast seaport. The oil, flowing from large storage tanks on the dock, is being transhipped to the armed forces of the U.S. and other of the United Nation. Through valves like these pour the derivative products of some of the 1,601,250,000 barrels of oil which the U.S. oil industry will produce this year. The fact that a U.S. Liberator four-motored bomber consumes 1,800 gallons of gasoline in one six-hour bombing run, enough to supply the average citizen motorist with fuel for four or five years of motoring, indicates the heavy volume of oil supplies required in the modern war

And now a beer meter. Washington, D.C., May 1. To aid Uncle Same in collecting the tax on the millions of barrels of beer brewed in this country every year, the National Bureau of Standards has designed a master beer meter for use of the alcohol unit of the Bureau of Internal Revenue, U.S. Treasury. Government inspectors employ this master meter in checking the accuracy of the brewery beer meter to determine the volume of beer brewed. In the photograph the large tank receives the liquid [after passing] thru the meter where it is weighed to get [the] true volume. Carl F. Stoneburner is reading [...]

6,750 airplanes equal 15 Battleships--Cook. Washington, D.C., Feb. 25. Testifying before the House Naval Affairs Committee today, Rear Admiral Arthur B. Cook, Chief of the Navy Department Bureau of Aeronautics, declared that it would take 6,750 airplanes to give the same volume of fire in one hour of 15 battleships. The cost of the 6,750 planes would be approximately seven times that of the 15 battleships if replacement requirements of the airplanes were considered, 2/25/38
