Explnnntlon of tho Prices Made by an
Enollih Firm Which Dlds Under All
American Manufacturers.
Spenklng recently beforo tho Terra
pin Club of Philadelphia, Eugciio G
urnce, Pivsldent of tho Bothlohom
Stool Company, said In part:
Mi a peculiar sense Bethlehdm Steol
senes tho American icoplo.
Kor exaniple. though wo have been
ablo to obtain In Europe almost nny
price. vo have adhered, In our charged
to the United States Government, to
tho basis of prices established beforo
the war began.
We agreed if tho Government would
abandon Its pinna for u Federal plant
to1 inaUa armor for our Navy at any
price the Government itself might con
tidcr fair.
Our onlnanco plants, aro nt tho dis
posal of tho nation at a fair operating
cost, plus a Email margin, thus snrlng
the Government Investment and 'de
predation. One of the special needs of the now
navy Is slxtccn-lnch guns guns sixty
feet long and capablo of hurtling a
2000 pound ahel with such power 'and
accuracy bb to hit a CO foot square tar
get fifteen miles nway.
Wo have undertaken voluntarily to
construct, at a cost of $4,600,000, a
plant fitted to build slxtccn-lnch guns.
Under no conceivable circumstances
can orders which wo may receive for
thlp plant pay even a fair return on
the Investment.
Considerable comment has been mado
upoh the fact that a British manufac
turer recently bid less than American
manufacturers for sixteen and four-tcen-lnch
shells for the navy.
I am unable to stato tho basis upon
which tho English bid was mado. It
should bo remembered, howovor, that
this bid was for a specific shell, sain
pie? of which aro bolng sent over for
test a test not yet made.
Tec years ago wo took an order for
240C fourteen-lnch armor-plorclng shells
nt u contract prlco of $708,000, to bo
delivered within a certain tlmo. or wo
had to pay n lurgo penalty.
Tho only specifications for making
these shells aro that they shall be
of a certain slzo nnd must plorco
armor-plate at a certain velocity on Im
pact It Is Impossible to foretell the
exact conditions of tho tests.
We had made large quantities of shells
In the past which had been accepted.
But in placing this particular ordor the
Department altered tho anglo nt which
tho tested shells must plcrco armor
plnte. Tho result, however, has been
absoluto inability on our part to pro-
duco In any quantity, sholls which will
meet theso novel tests. In fact, "wo
know of no process of projcctllo-mak-
lng through which It Is posslblo to pro
duco lu quantities sholls which will
conform to tho requirements.
Tho result is that up to now on that
contract of ?70S,00O, wo havo put Into
actual operating expense $-147,881.. nnd
bnyo been pcnnllzed for non-dcllvery
$405,744., a total of $043,025.. with Btf
receipts whatever.
Such wbb tho experience In tho light
of which wo wero called upon recent
ly to bid for slxtccn-lnch shells.
Wo bid on theso shells nt approxi
mately the samo rato per pound as
that of a fourtcen-inch shell contract
of one year ago upon which the Got.
eminent awarded contracts.
Wo have not tho slightest idea what
profit thoro will bo in tho making of
theso shells. Wo do not know that
thero will be any. Thero Is no certain,
ty that it would bo posslblo for us to
deliver a shell to meet tho test
For olllcors lu tho Navy to assumo
that any bid mado under such condi
tions is "exorbitant" Is utterly Unfair.

Mutual Building & Loan Assn.
ASSETS $840,000.00
To Prospective Building & Loan Borrowers;
Non-resident Building & Loan Companies are adver
tising the fact that they hav reduced the monthly payments
of borrowers to $1.10 per month on each 8100.00 borrowed,
making the monthly payment the same as the Mutual Build
ing & Loan Association of $orth Platte. They fail to state
that of the $1.10 paid to the non-resident company, there is
only thirty-five cents credited as a principal payment, the
baqnpe seventy-five cents being taken for interest. Of the
$1.10 monthly payment to this association on each 100.00
borrowed sixty cents is for interpst and fifty cenjs is credited
as a principal payment.
This difference in the amount credited the borrower
will result in the borrower in the nori-reijident company be
ing compelled to pay nqt less lhan $2Q0 more on each
$100.00 borrowed in order to discharge the debt than they
would if they were doing the business with this Association.
