Tor.age Being Turned Out a Disap
ointment to Officials Need
More to Win the War.
Washington, April 2. American
shipbuilders were called upon to
night to explain why their output
lor March fell hehind schedule.
Chairman Hurley, of the shipping
board and General Manager Piez, of
the emergency fleet corporation tel
egraphed heads of all the yards in
the United States saying they were
'keenly disappointed" in the tonnage
delivered and placing the responsi
bility of turning out ships squarely
on the men in control of actual
building operations.
"Keynote of present situation is
management leadership," the tele
gram said. "Money, material and
manufacture have been supplied
without stint by the nation. The
American people want ships, not ex
cuses." Suggestions were requested and
the officials said they wanted to
Know if the fault lay in the emer
gency fleet corporation.
'Tlease don't over-estimate," the
telegram urged, after asking for the
prospects during April. It was said
that the March estimate of 197,07",
tons had meen made on the promises
of ship builders who delivered only
100.700 tons.
In discussing the telegram, Mr.
Hurley said he meant to find out
exactly where the fault lay.
"Perhaps it might lie with the
representatives of the fleet corpora
tion, who are co-operating with the
builders." he said. "If so, we want
to know it and promise to correct
"Kvry man engaged in building
ships ought to keep in mind all the
time that he is working to back up
the boys over there and that it is
up to the shipbuilder and ship work
r to feed those boys who are giving
their all i.i this war. If we all could
get the idea, there would be no loss
of production at any time."

hour the spirit of John Micin, who

thirty-five years, after the body had
