Why We Are Opposing A
Government Armor Plant
To the People:
Some people say that the very fact that the Bethlehem Steel Company is so aggressively
fighting the proposal to build a Government armor plant is conclusive proof that the Company
is seeking to assure for itself the "vast profits" derived from private manufacture.
The fact is that armor making is the least profitable feature of steel manufacture.
The reason we oppose a Government plant is very simple. It is this:
Even though there is but little profit in the making of armor, we have invested over
. $7,000,000 in our armor plant;
That plant is useless for any other purpose; if a Government plant is built the useful
ness of our plant is destroyed.
It would be pood business for us to make armor for the Govern
ment at any price over and above the actual shop cost, RATHEU
THAN SACRIFICE OUR ENTIRE INVESTMENT.
t ' ' ' ' "
We do not seek to save big profits; our purpose is very frankly to save our armor
plant itself built solely for the use of the Government from going to the scrap heap.
To To that, yp are prepared to agree for any period to any terms of manufacture
which the Federal Trade Commission shall say absolutely protects the Government
of the United States.

On May 5 the Murdock high school
baseball team played a return --game
at' Grand Prairie. Cunningham, the
teacher, took a picked team from the
vicinity and stood them against the
visiting team. The Murdock team
struggled under obstacles throughout
the game and the final score was 6
to 5, in favor of Grand Prairie. Mon
day, May 22, Grand Prairie had a
picnic in remembrance of the closing
time of school. They invited the Mur
dock high school to be present and
enjoy the ice cream and another game
of baseball, to which they heartily
responded. In fact, they had another
new player, which greatly aided them
in winning. The game was largely
attended and it was interesting from
beginning to end. Many class yells
were exchanged on the grounds. The
little folks under the fifth grade at
Grand Prairie were smart little yell
masters for the home team. The
score stood 13 to 4 in Grand Prairie's
favor for the second time. After the
game the high school pupils were
entertained at ice cream, which was
a fine refreshment for the defeated
high school team. We wish the Grand
Prairie team much success this year
in playing ball.
