Summary: I. "Warrior of the week." An army officer who has helped develop a searchlight attachment which brings aircraft into the light beam more rapidly promises to visit the factories "to tell you all about it."
II. The other man's job." Industry depends on electricity which is conducted by millions of miles of copper wire. Item shows process whereby copper ore is converted into fine quality wire: smelting, refining, cooling of molten ore; transportation of copper bars to mill where they are converted into rods, then coiled into wire; subsequent conversion into stranded wire or insulated cables and final testing.
III. "They planned victory." Posed views of the British and American participants at the Casablanca meeting both outside and in conference. Giraud and de Gaulle (with little enthusiasm) shake hands in front of Roosevelt in order "to end political wrangling in North Africa." France is reportedly 90% behind de Gaulle. Roosevelt later reviews his forces and has an al fresco lunch with Clark and Hopkins. Agreement was reached on "an offensive this year."
