P ro p e rty Requisitioning
The President by executive order
delegated to the OPM the power to
requisitioon property under the con
ditions set forth by Congress in the
acta o f October 10, 1940 and October
16, 1941. Whenever requested by the
OPM any federal agency is author
ized to requisition property essential
to national defense which cannot be
obtained 'in any other way.
OPM issued a comparison of pre
sent industrial defense efforts with
thoose during 1917 and 1918. The
comparison showed tthe productive
capacity o f each worker has greatly
increased because o f technical e ffi
ciency and that because o f lower pri
ces the U. S. is now getting more
value for every dollar spent.
