Watch Your Equipment
Recently we noticed a poster around
the plant stating “We must get along
with the tools and material available
in these trying times.”
To go a bit further, it is' our
thought, The tools we have, must be
used carefully and thoughtfully. Think
for a moment before forcing that
drill or tap. Be cautious, use light pres
sure at first, then when you are sure,
work as fast as the material permits.
Familiarize yourself with the correct
drills and taps to use. It is one of the
most important things which go to
make up a good mechanic. The speed
of machinery, using drills, reamers
and other steel cutting tools is equal
ly important. Keeping your tools close
at hand and within easy reach when
you are using them is being careful
with them. They cannot be mislaid.
Unless you are fond of doing things
the hard way, it is much easier to use
a portable Electric Drill, rather than
losing it and drilling the hole by
hand. Or using a cutter at a speed too
high for the metal which, is being
cut. In such cases where an End Mill
or Metal Cutting Saw is broken and
no tool replacement can be purchased,
the breaker can either chew it down
to size with his teeth or go back to the
hacksaw and file.
Seriously however, the machine tool
situation is critical. By taking excep
tional good care of the material we
have, we enable some other manufac
turer of more vital defense armament
to do his job, which is nothing more
than guaranteeing a Free, Liberty
Loving, United States.

Library Books On Review
“With This Ring” by Mignon Eber
hart, is very exciting and interesting.
It is one of the best mysteries I have
ever read. — Nell Lance, Hand Book
Grace Livingston Hill’s book, “Mari
gold”, is a very interesting book for
it seems so true to life and holds the
readers attention by not beating
around the bush,—^Agnes Whiteside,
I like “Tomorrow’s Promise” by
Temple Bailey, because it is very in
teresting and is a love story and 1
think most of us like that type. —■
Carolyn Garren, Machine Booklet.
At first, reading “Berlin Diary” so
soon after our entrance into the war,
gives one a disturbing feeling, but it
is so enlightening on the course of
events in Europe during the past two
years, and the psychology and morale
of the peoples involved, that it is prac
tically a “must” for anyone following
the whys and wherefores of our own
entanglement. — Kathleen Ricker,
We wish to express our thanks for
the generous way our President, Mr.
Harry Straus has helped us by in
creasing our salaries in proportion to
the rise in cost of living expenses.
This is the latest evidence of his gen
uine interest in the welfare and hap
piness o£ those who work for him.

REMEMBER PEARL HARBOR
Out of a calm and peaceful sky
On a Holy Sabbath day
There struck with might the devil’s
In its usual cowardly way.
The L. Y. B.’s from their sultry place
Dropped bombs on a land of peace,
Ran daggers through the souls of men
Yet it there will not cease.
For this land of so many blessings
Raised arms to defend their own.
And each must do his tiny part
That stab in the back to atone.
We must sacrifice our loves and lives
That freedoAi might be again.
That turmoil in the world shall cease
And peace forever reign.
Let us pledge our lives together
One for all and all for one.
Let’s cause a total and final eclipse
In the “Land of the Rising Sun”!

Dr. Ward Harrison: “NoW you see
what I was trying to show is correct,
but I know it is not.”

have witnessed some very unsafe
practices by the employees in the d®'

livelihood of their fellow workers.
Lady Luck has been very kind ^
our department lately and we
had no serious injuries. However,
cannot expect Lady Luck to be
us always, and oftentimes that o®
thing is the difference between a
or and a major injury.
We must all realize that lost
is gone forever and that we
never be in too big a hurry to thii''
and act safely. To be an asset to y®!?
department, you must be
fit to do your work at all times- Tp
loss of time shows up greatly in
pay checks and none of us have nioD®^
to burn or can afford to lose
which rightly is ours.
The practice of Safety, whether ®
or off the job, assures us that o
earning power will not be decrease:
It is the direct responsibility j
every person employed here to exte®
every effort possible in the pr®'^®
tion of injuries. Let’s not have any°^
