from this department during
September of last year.

department also answered 226

Scrap Parade Saturday
Do Your Bit
"IOOUND UP your scrap metal—it’s
needed to make steel. Steel for armor
plate to protect him from bombs and
bullets. Steel for weapons to help him do
the job that must be done before be can
come borne again.
You don’t want production figures. It’s
enough to know that 50% of all new
steel is made of scrap — that our steel
mills now' nave only enough scrap in
sight to last another 30 days at tJie most?
What happens after that depends on all
of us. If production falls and you’ve not
done your part, will you rest easy? .
Next week the newspapers of Oregon are
getting behind a collection drive—to build
the biggest stockpile of scrap metal you’ve
ever seen. Then when the mills need it,
we'll have it—because you came through
... for his sale!
