Mr. SHERLEY. Are there any complaints from manufacturers to the effect that they have been ready and prepared to undertake the work, but have had to wait some time before being allotted a particular quantity or given the exact specifications, or what not, in connection with their work?

Mr. ROSENWALD. There have been in certain lines, such as shoes, where the quartermaster is supposed to supply the lasts. The quartermaster is supposed, as soon as a contract is let for shoes, to forward sufficient lasts to the manufacturer in order to care for that number of shoes within a given time; we find that in some cases the quartermaster has neglected to take care of this thing and the result is that certain manufacturers have not had the lasts so that they could begin the work and they were delayed, some of them as long as a month and six weeks. Many of them we had no way of knowing about until the thing had run along for a month.

Mr. SHERLEY. The shoe situation, however, is satisfactory now, from your statement?

Mr. ROSENWALD. This report will show exactly, and it might be well for you to look at it.

Mr. SHERLEY. Have you been buying some blankets from Canada!

Maj. Wonson. Yes; the specification blanket used by the Canadian Army.

Mr. SHERLEY. Did you get any cloth from Canada?
Mr. RosenwALD. We got some duck from Canada, I believe.

Maj. Wonson. We got some uniform cloth, some meltons, from Canada.

Mr. ROSENWALD. And I think we got some duck, some cotton duck.

Maj. WONSON. I do not remember about that.
