Conversion. Toy factory. The hands of Lucille Ciecko, worker in a New England plant, tells the story of conversion in its simpler aspects. Lucille used to drill casings for toy locomotives. Here she is changing the drill on her press, about to begin the more vital work of today--drilling holes for wires in parachute flare casing. Not all conversion is as simple as this, but thousands of machines used in our peacetime industrial program are now being retooled and changed over to war work. A. C. Gilbert Company, New Haven, Connecticut

These two girls, Stephanie Cewe and Ann Manemeit, have turned their skill from peacetime production of toy trains to the assembling of parachute flare casings for the armies of democracy. Along with other workers in this Eastern plant, they have turned their skill to the vital needs of the day, and in many cases have seen to it that the machinery they used to use does Uncle Sam's most important work today. Stephanie, left, is assembling toy locomotives, driving screws and nuts with an electric screwdriver, while Ann is at her peacetime job assembling locomotive housings to their chassis. Today both girls are working with electric screwdrivers, assembling parachute flare casings. A. C. Gilbert Company, New Haven, Connecticut
