Reconversion Plans
Halted Until Victory
NEW YORK, Dec. 6.-(RP)-Ameri-
can industry shoved its reconversion
plans back on the shelf today.
War goods, which at the end of
three years of fighting had begun to
lose the spotlight to peacetime prod-
ucts, again moved to the center of
the stage.
"More guns now- butter later,"
said John M. Hancock, co-author
with Bernard Baruch of the nation's
master reconversion plan.
"Victory first-then reconversion"
was the theme of Charles E. Wilson,
president of General Motors Corp.
which is one of the country's largest
war or peace producers.
Those were the keynotes of the
49th annual meeting of the National
Association of Manufacturers which
began with pleas from Army Supply
Chief Lt.-Gen. Brehon Somervell and
War Production Board Chairman
J. A. Krug for more weapons.
"We pledge management's unceas-
ing and uninterrupted continuation
of its effort to produce an even
greater volume until victory is finally
won," was the answer of nearly 3,000
top industrial executives in a resolu-
tion at the opening session.
