Sep Teinberg in the times concerning an enlargement program after the attempt to merge the Inland steel and Youngstown Sheet and tube companies had failed. At that time it was. Declai de that there was a steel overproduction at the Youngstown Plant and it was thought that unless the Inland plate and rail Mills could take Over the Youngstown Over Supply an expansion at Youngstown would become mandatory or As the Only alternative the Plant would have to curtail its production. It was the desire that the Indiana Harbor Plant be balanced in proportion Between the raw and Market products that led to the decision to construct a new merchant Niillo which with its diversity of products could most easily take Over any surplus from the open Hearth furnaces. The principal product at Youngstown heretofore has been tin plate and pipes and this new step of building a steel plate Mill is thought to be the first toward making the Plant capable of All forms of steel production. The next Steps May be the construction of rail Mills and possibly wire Mills. Quail season opens Indianapolis ind., nov. 10.�? .
