Conquer by the Clock (1943)
Encourages American wartime workers to “keep their sleeves rolled up.” Describes the volume of industrial and agricultural production that can be accomplished in a single day: enough rifles for a battalion, 1000 acres of corn converted to 30,000 bushels of food.”
Calls tired workers, in effect, “saboteurs”. Narration admonishes workers for the death of soldiers through inadequate equipment or supplies. Utterly melodramatic. Urges workers to move production forward relentlessly. Says that “the clock” is what will win the war.
