A Mistake in the Policy of
the Bethlehem Steel Company
To the People:
The Senate of tho United States has passed n 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 Uist manufacturers of armor havo "gouged" tho country In the post, nnd that a government
plant is necessary to secure armor moro cheaply.
The mUtake of the Ilethlcliem Steel Company haa been that it Ima kept quiet.
Wo havo allowed Irresponsible awertiona to bo mado for eo long without denial, tiiat many people
now believo them to bo proven fuel.
We shall mako tho mUtake of alienee nc longer.
Henceforth wo shall pursue a policy of publicity. Misinformation will not be permitted to go
It b and has been the policy of our Company to Jdeal with the American Government fairly
"Wo shall henceforth place tho detail of onr-relations with tho Government before
the American People.
Tho United States has for twenty years obtained the highest erode of armor and baa paid a lower
price for it than baa any other great naval power.

A government plant cannot make armor any cheaper than we can do it; and
We are prepared to manufacture armor at any price which the Government itself
.hall name as fair. THAT BEING SO. SHOULD $11,000,000 OF THE TEOPLE'S
MONEY BE WASTED TO BUILD A GOVERNMENT PLANT?
