Congratulations on the splendid record turned in by the
University of Nebraska fraternity and sorority students in
their scrap drive. The materials situation is now one of the
limiting factors in war production and every pound of scrap
collected will help to build more tanks, planes, guns and
ships. Your record is an outstanding one and a direct con
tribution toward winning the war.
