“The vastness of the production requirements of all-out defense is difficult to visualize from any vantage point which is available to the average man. Wherever it is seen in part its gigantic proportions are apparent but the complete and intricate pattern of such a program is hard to imagine, impossible to see.
It is Faith—Faith in the vision of the Founding Fathers — Faith in the sure intent of a great people — Faith in the inevitable outcome of a concerted effort by a United Nation which must for the present take the place of exact Knowledge. To this faith upon which our Country was built, our thousands of able, experienced workers, our acres of production facilities are dedicated.”
