While our military, naval and marine forces are still facing the common enemy and while our merchant marine is still struggling against the hazards of the sea, it is not only fitting but appropriate that industrial and professional leadership should gather for a review of its prospects and responsibilities.
War production is our present paramount duty and will remain so until the war ends. Nevertheless there is a future, that postwar period of adjustment which should be of vital importance to us today.
My subject, "The Supply of Drugs and Medical Materials in the Postwar Period," should be expanded to include all supplies and equipment essential to the maintenance of health. Many believe that postwar planning is premature. In fact, there are many who contend that the mere thought of peace problems now is a waste of mental energy. It is questionable whether the serious thinker will agree.
