THE TEAM THAT BUILT A THOUSAND SHIPS
IN the short space of time since Pearl
Harbor, more than a thousand
1 0,000-ton Liberty ships have been built
in America's shipyards.
Two things are chiefly responsible for
this epic production achievement: the
resourcefulness of our shipbuilders
and new mass production methods
made possible by the oxyacetylene

electric arc.
   By wide-
. spread use of
revolutionary pre-fabrication tech-
niques, America's shipbuilders have cre-
ated a gigantic fleet of cargo ships
which are now helping to turn the tide
of war in our favor.
  In many other vital fields of indus-
try the oxyacetylene flame and the
electric arc have played equally im-
portant roles. And their proven effi-
ciency and economy in war produc-
tion foreshadows the important place
they will assume in peacetime manu-
facturing.
Air Reduction research and engineer-
ing has made many important contribu-
tions to the development of oxyacety-
lene and electric arc processes. If you
