WAR USES FOR FACTORIES
Manufacturers Surprised to Find What
Can Be Made in Their Plants in
Case of Emergency.
Here Is a paragraph, snipped out of
nn article by George Creel in Every-
body's Magazine, which shows the wnr
uses to which various peaceful manu-
factories can be subjected:
"A manufacturing jeweler was sur-
prised to learn that his plant, with
n few changes, could turn out perl-
scope; a sash-chaln maker found
that his machines were adapted
to the production of cartridge clips
for rifles and machine guns; a phono-
graph concern was discovered to be
well fitted for the manufacture of cer-
tain delicate shell parts; makers of
underwear may be relied on for ban-
dages; a manufacturer of music-rolls
for gages; a cream-separator plant for
shell-primers; a sewing machine com-
pany for galnes; a recording and com-
puting machine plant for fuses; an

drug manufacturers and dye works for
high explosives; finished shells may be

millers, tobacco manufacturers, and

ridge they have attempted no further
attack. The British having thorough-
ly consolidated the new line running

taverne, are further securing their

comparatively little resistance. The
enemy appears undecided whether to
make a further stand or to fall back
to the Wareton line. The British are
pressing toward this town.
