A soldier's uniform, he said, should
make him immediately conscious of
his trust, "but the man in industry
is as vital to our defense as the sol
dier in the field, and any open dis
cussion of industrial secrets may be
as harmful to the safety of our coun

ways be on the alert, because the
questions will seldom be direct but
Colonel Kennedy declared that
suspicious actions or persons should
be reported to the nearest FBI Field
Office or to the local police.
"Don't try to be an amateur
