the fall employes cautioned not to discuss changes outside plant by h e blythe vice president and general manager a statement by the truman committee reports that the army plans to taper off the production of b-26 bombers and use the facilities to produce other types of planes no official announcement has been made by the army as to the exact nature of those changes however i can tell you we are already in on a new job much bigger and more im portant than the b-26 i wanl you to know this but i also want to caution you not to discuss the changes outside the plant the strategy of the battle front changes with conditions and industry's job is to produce whatever the army or navy from time to time needs that's the reason for the change now above all don't worry about your job i can give you assurance that we are not going to lay off personnel the army needs more planes not less general knudson reminded us monday that america is build ing 7,000 planes a month and needs 10,000 we will still have plenty to do also the projected change over to a new type of plane wil necessarily be a gradual one extending over several months and as the b-26 goes down ii production the new plane wil come up thus utilizing the time and ability of everyone i would like to take this oc casion to say one thing to every man and woman in plants b and c who is affected by the change supervision and stafl people must study every phase of their new assignments an ticipate their needs see tha materials and equipment are ready when needed so that the changeover can be made smoothly and efficiently also i ask the people in the shop to study the requirements of their jobs so that they too will be ready to change over immediately to whatever new tasks may await them a change of this magnitude is a challenge to all of us â€” to the ingenuity and resourceful ness of american industry ant to the alertness and workman continued on page 2 members of the ohio selective service board in columbus were
