STEEL MILLS NEED SCRAP METAL
FROM YOUR FARM
Supplies of scrap for the steel furnaces are critically
low. The furnaces thrive on a diet of about equal
portions of pig iron and scrap. More scrap is urgently
needed, if there is to be enough steel for making
farm implements and countless other products.
More than three million tons of steel scrap lie idle
on America's farms, according to the latest' estU
mates scrap that only litters up the place, scrap
that is wasted where it is. How much is there on
your farm? How about the old car body, that
rusted cultivator, those eld plow bottoms, discarded
tools? Erery bit helps and it is needed now.
IT'S HARVEST TIME FOR SCRAP
There's a bumper scrap crop to be harvested this
spring and there's money in it for you. Your
scrap dealer will pay for ererything nsable. Yon
can do three good turns in one scrap harvest .
1. You make some money on what you can't use.
2. You get your outdoor spring housecleaning done.
3. You help the steel mills turn out more steel lor the Implements
and equipment you'd like to have on your farm.
Scrap means savings to you if you'll collect it.
and sell it. On the first rainy day, when you can't
plow or sow or cultivate, pat on your oldest clothe
and get that scrap together.
HERE'S WHAT TO DO
1. Pile up every bit of iron and steel scrap
on your place.
2. Take a paylond into town the next time
you go. You'll nuike more money out
of it that way.
3 If you can't drive it in, call your scrap
dealer and ask him to pick it up.
4. If there is no scrap dealer near you, call
your implement dealer. Ask him how
to get your scrap started toward th
