A Mistake in the Policy of
the Bethlehem Steel Company
To the People:
The Senate of the United States has passed a bill to spend $11,000,000 of the People's money
to build a government armor plant. The measure is now before the House of Representatives,
It is said that manufacturers of armor have "gouged' the country in the past, and that a government -plant
is necessary to secure armor more cheaply.
The mistake of the Bethlehem Steel Company'haa been that it has kept quiet.
We have allowed irresponsible assertions to be made for bo long" without denial, that many people
now believe them to be proven facts.
We shall mate the mistake of silence no longer.
Misinformation 'will not be permitted to ga
It is and has been the policy of our Company to fdeal with the American Government fairly"
We shall henceforth place the details of our relations with the Government before
the American People.
The United States has for twenty years obtained the highest grade of armor and has paid a lover
price for it thun has any other great naval power. '
Fi chits officially compiled for the. Striate Committee on Naval Aflaira from the Naval Year Book ihov that
under conditions prevailing juat before the European war. the chief naval powers of the world were paying
these prices for armors
England, $303 per ton; France, $160; Germany, $190; Japan, $490; UNITED STATES. $425.
A government plant cannot make armor any cheaper than we can dolt; and
We are prepared to manufacture armor at any price which the Government itself
shall name as fair. TIIAT BEING SO, SHOULD 11,000,000 OF THE PEOPLE'S
MONEY BE WASTED TO BUILD A GOVERNMENT PLANT? x
Henceforth we 6hall pursue a policy of publicity,
