MESSAGE
FROM THE
PRESIDENT
TO MY FELLOW WORKERS:
Histoiians assume that a club
was the first instrument or tool
devised by man — as a means
for getting food and as a defen

And as centuries passed and
various products came into being
there came a day when someone
put his name or special mark on
something he had made. It was
