Reporters scramble for crop reports, Washington, D.C., October 10. Due to a premature leak of information from the drop report of the government several years ago, the Federal Crop Reporting Board has a system to prevent premature information which might influence the stock market. The reports are laid on a table a few yards away from the newsapermen who are held off by a rope. At a given signal, the rope is dropped and the reporters rush to the table, pick up the reports, and make another rush. This time to the phones to phone their papers. The photograph shows some of the reporters after the rope was dropped

Huge drop hammers work day and night forming sheet metal parts for United Nations bombers and fighters at the North American Aviation, Inc., plant, Inglewood, Calif. The heavy hemp rope is used to snub the hammer so that it forms the part under proper pressure and rises clear of the work after each operation. This plant produces the battle-tested B-25 ("Billy Mitchell") bomber, used in General Doolittle's raid on Tokyo, and the P-51 ("Mustang") fighter plane which was first brought into prominence by the British raid on Dieppe
