Declares at Civil Liberties Committee. Washington, D.C., March 17. Paul S. Litchfield, President of the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company, told the Lafollette Civil Liberties Committee today that while his firm recognized "outside unions" it kept an elaborate "company union" which is known as the "the industrial assembly", and it comprises an assembly and Senate, much as the state legislature. Acting in a capacity similar to a state Governor, the manager has power to disapprove assembly actions, he added

Barrage balloon manufacture. Getting supplies at the storehouse. This barrage balloon builder has come to the company's storehouse to obtain more reinforcing tape to fasten the seams of a barrage balloon. Small, but vital to production, every piece of material must pass over this counter and be recorded before issuance. The storekeeper is the only man who knows the secret formula for mixing the rubber cement combination which works most effectively in making air-tight seams.

Barrage balloon manufacture. Glove for a gas bag. Fitting the outstretched fingers of a fabric patch to the side of a barrage balloon, this worker must be extremely careful to put the patch on smoothly.

Barrage balloon manufacture. Cementing with a paint brush. This worker is a fabric cementer busy applying a rigging patch to the side of a new barrage balloon. Although the fabric looks mussed at the moment, it will be stretched tight and smooth when the new piece of fabric is added. Seams are triple protected against leaks, folded over, cement-welded, taped on both sides with overlapping rubber adhesive tape. Such seams will never pull apart under pressure.

Barrage balloon manufacture. Fin-shaping cords. These workers are inside the rear-right horizontal fin of a barrage balloon, checking the ropes which give the fin shape and hold it together.

Barrage balloon manufacture. Rubber tailor shop. Using a tailor's electric cutter--a speedup suggestion from one of the young workers--these workers slice through several thicknesses of rubber fabric as they cut the patterns for the strips and "gores" for making barrage balloons. Marked, cut, assembled and seamed on long tables, the strips are taken from the tables to the assembly floor to be fashioned into a gigantic gas balloon for the protection of our cities.
