Portrait by Paul Thompson

Photographs of factory copyright by Onderwood & Underwood If anybody attacks the United States, believe me, I'm going to fight and fight hard.The same willingness to finance his ideals that made Henry Ford send a peace ship to Europe backed his offer of a $100,000,000 loan to the Government, without interest, and the

of his entire factory, with its 46,000 employees

The question of woman's placegets
more complicated every day. For even
without the stimulus of war the boun-
daries of said place were rapidly coming
to include all property adjacent thereto,
and now that the need of national service
justifies their venturing, women are by
no means resting content with even the
"adjacent jobs. In France, perhaps, re.
cessity has called on women most to do
the work that once belonged to men. The
mechanics at the right are employed at
a big aviation station not far from the
lines of fighting. The little Parisian mes-
senger at the left stepped into Brother'a
job when he was called to the front.
Above is a bit of the day's work in a
Chicago lumber yard. Somehow it doesn't
look as queer as you think it ought to!

second chairman of the Shipping Board struck the
right note to satisfy the national impatience after
weeks of futile controversy over the case of
wooden ships vs. steel. President Wilson gave
former Chairman William Denman and Major-
General Goethals, recently General Manager of
the Emergency Fleet Corporation, plenty of
time to settle their differences or to effect a
compromise; his acceptance at last of the
resignations of both men cleared

away the tangle for a fresh start on our ship-building program, which finally worked out to emphasize the importance of steel

ships, but included wooden vessels, too. The photograph below shows a picturesque point in the building of the forest fleet; there are approximately a million feet of lumber in this particular ship. Above is one of the most essential units in steel ship-building, a riveter fastening down the hcavy deck plates Bain

Here are the men whose job it was to help
us win the war by putting on the seas
more cargo-carrying tonnage than Ger-
man submarines can take off. Rear-Ad-
miral Washington Lee Capps (at the left),
who succeeded General Goethals as Gen-
eral Manager of the Emergency Fleet
Corporation, was formerly Chief Construc-
tor of the Navy. The skeleton or basket"
mast, distinctive of United States battle-
ships, is one of his inventions. Edward N.

Hurley, Mr. Denman's successor as chair-
man of the Shipping Board, was ap-
pointed to the Federal Trade Commission
in 1913 and later became its chairman
