Production Front end section

 The front end section of a war housing trailer goes into place at the Los Angeles plant of Western Trailer Company. Plastic wheel wells, which will shortly be covered by cabinet work, are made of paper impregnated with a special hardening solution and formed over molds. This material is a very satisfactory substitute for the steel formerly used.
