The United States of America has been mobilized and waging war for more than two years. Every device known to science, every resource of the country, every means of production, has been and is being employed to bring the conflict to a successful conclusion. Public funds, in amounts beyond comprehension, have been appropriated for the production of materiel. As of March r943, the War Department alone had outstanding more than 240,000 contracts in the face amount of approximately $75,000,000,000.
