Into the muzzle ' f Ker TKraft has got a new con- of your gun you fit a "set," the end of which is shaped to cover the rivet-head; you hold the set firm on the rivet, pull the trigger. Presto! The shank has squashed itself down into a flat "heacT' on your partner's side. This, they explained to us at Simpson's, was the procedure. Now we would try it; and the classroom echoed with an explosion of violent rat-tat-tats accompanied by an ex- plosion of girlish shrieks and a third explosion of dropped bucking- bars. A rivet-gun is an alarming little machine until you become ac- customed to it. At Simpson's we were taught an elaborate code of taps which, we were assured, was used by all rivet- ing teams as thelr only way of communicating with each other You'll find it in all the textbooks and perhaps riveters somewhere do use it. At Kerry Kraft, when we buckers want to say "More" we don't tap, we say "More," and when we want to let our gunners know that they have made the thing too flat we express ourselves much more forcefully than by using taps. And when we are ready when the rivet -s in its hole, our bar against it set for the gunner to gun, we yell, "Hit it! .... Hit it!" There's a certain unvarying inflection to it, a certain pitch to the voice, be it that of a man or girl. It has some- thlng of the same quality as the "Go!" which sets off runners. "Hit it! .... Hit it!" All up and down the lines that's what you hear: "Hit it!" and the instant, sharp, incredibly fast and incredibly noisy hammering of the gun. That is riveting, when you've got a good rivet-team, who've worked together and know each other'g "style." That is riveting when you're "He can't play a good game on a calm sea!" This Curious W d By William Fermo tract. Kerry Kraft is going to build, not just more parts of planes for somebody else, but its own com- plete, invincible, totally assem- bled fighter. They've done them before, but only in a small way. Now it's "big-time" stuff, assem- bly line stuff, real Production. It doesn't mean just one line, to as- semble the plane itself; it means a line for each part: fuselage, wing, tail. fin, rudder, aileron, elevator Then the final assembly; all the parts, each completed on its own line, coming together -- half a dozen planes being assem- bled all at once. Not all of these lines are start- ing off from scratch They've al- ready been making the wings and stabilizers, the fins and control- surfaces, and all that is really new is the fuselage and the fitting of these various pieces together to make a finished plane. It's, as planes go, a little thing, but it takes up a lot of room and, in or- der to arrange the component lines in some semblance of a pat- tern, everything is topsy-turvy. In the shop, they, express it dif- ferently. My fellow-workers, I find, have quite a gift for vivid phrase. And my fellow-workers, now, are no longer girls but "fellers," for I am at last out of Bench and on the Lines. On the line which makes the stabilizers for the new plane, the "X-O." At last I am a riveter At Simpson's, on the day when we first met rivets, I was, incredible as it now seems, not only entirely ignorant of what riveting might be, btt hardly sure what a rivet itself was. I remember looking curiously at the round-headed, short and un- "knoekin' 'em out" and when every. pointed nail--five-thirty-seconds of thing is "on the beam," okay and an inch in diameter, not quite half movin'. That is riveting, the "glamor an inch long. The only rivets I had job" of aircraft. ever before been aware of were (To Be Continued) %._ Around t Dial BELIEVED THAT r DIA(IqCX June 5, 1944 w'r aE,I ....... IN  ........ IN WUBM ......

We have not enough industry to serve America's needs or the world's needs. In this country we have done pretty well as far as we have gone, but there must be more and more industry. It is essential to political and economic freedom.  Henry Ford.
