I had a friend pick this up this bike for me. Rear wheel has been replaced. No headbadge, tons of paint on the frame and the serial number is covered over. I'll need to wire wheel the paint to find the numbers.
Thanks in advance

Sometimes straight bar refers to the down tube, on older bikes. I believe that by 1940, the relatively new CWC had models with curved down tubes.
Westfield was a hold-out; they even had double drop bar frames in 1940's, it is said. Snyder (Rollfast) went to the curved down tube in 1942 mens models, I believe.
I believe that pictures of the seat post cluster and seat stay bridge would be helpful.
The seat post clamp appears to be the old style integrated into the seat post cluster (hard to see).
Some Westfield frames had notched seat post clamp bolts, so that one did not require two wrenches.
Often the main joints at the bottom bracket are a hint toward Snyder versus Westfield.
I believe that the drop outs on Snyder bikes, may have had a notch between the drop stand pivot hole and the drop stand stop (ears).
Head tube holes for fastening a head badge might be somewhat helpful, but both Snyder and Westfield had mostly horizontal holes.

Hopefully the forks will straighten out..I would check the head tube/top tube intersection for cracks as well as the steerer tube/forkcrown.
I have a little brute and the fork has straightened out nicely. Didn't need much. It looks pretty solid under all the barn dirt and grime.

Just finished striping down the bike and found the holes for the headbadge. The holes are vertical and are 2 3/8 inches apart. Any ideas what headbadge would go on this bike?
