This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1919 edition. Excerpt: ...measures were eifected, outside the Government and in, by the strictest cooperation with the industry through the various war-service committees and by technical advice and consultation with the Government war-making agencies. Those measures scarcely permit of a tangible analysis because of their number and their variety. Conservation, however, was generally effected by securing a maximum reduction in the number of styles, varieties, sizes, colors, or finishes of the product; eliminating the number of styles and varieties that took more than the amount of material strictly necessary (as, for example, restricting the length and sweep of overcoats); eliminating features or accessories which used materials for adornment or convenience but which were not essential to the utility of the product; eliminating patterns and types of products which were less essential to the civilian needs; substituting materials which were plentiful in the place of those which were not plentiful and were needed for the war program (for example, zinc was substituted for steel and other metals); discontinuing the use of certain materials for unnecessary purposes (such as caustic soda in the manufacture of automobile tires); standardizing sizes, lengths, widths, weights, thicknesses, and gauges of materials, parts and sections; reducing the excessive waste of materials in manufacturing processes (such as chrome chemicals in certain branches of the leather-tanning industry); securing economy in samples used for selling products; securing economy in containers by eliminating boxes or cartons which required excessive shipping space (as, for example, eliminating small sizes of containers); securing economy in packing by increasing the number of units per package. more
