President Roosevelt asked Congress
for a supplemental appropriation of
$6,687,000,000 for the war depart
ment including $3,720,000,000 for
ordnance and $779,000,000 for the
air corps. Army chief of ordnance
Wesson speaking in Harttford, Conn.,
said U .S. light and medium tanks
have greater fire power, maneuvers,
bility and speed than European mo
dels as well as “ many times the
powers of endurance.” He said the
ordnance department has also devis
ed a light anti-tank artillery piece
"capable o f kno-riring out any known
tank at vary great ranges.”
