I may shorten the war with anni- jhilating new offensives. At the same time, the President called for the rationing of man- power. Workers must be kept from changing jobs at will, he said. Pirating of one employer's labor ,by another must be forbidden. The objective must be "the right num- i bers of people in the right places at the right time." Ar.d he held out a possibility that [legislation of a drastic nature may be necessary to keep the farmer supplied with hands to harvest the nation's food supplies.

It was, generally i speaking, an optimistic report of Iwhat he found on his recent tour of defense plants, army pests and naval stations.
