Bethlehem's Bid on Shells
for the United States Navy
To Mhe American People:
The Secretary of the Navy has awarded
contracts amounting to over $3,000,000
to a British bidder for 14 and 16-inch
projectiles for the Navy because of very
much lower prices offered by the English
We know nothing of the basis upon which
the British bids were made, but the pub4
lic is entitled-to know the facts upon
which we ourselves bid for this work.
Two years ago we took contracts
to make 4,200 14-incl shells at a
price of $1,515,000. Up to now
iot a single shell has been ac
cepted by the Government, al
though we have expended, In
wages, materials, etc., on these
orders $522,801, ani we have not
received a SINGLE DOLLAR on
In addition. ai literal interpretation of
1110 contract might mnaka its liable for
penalties amounting to $678.01.
In the light of our experience, and hav
ing no other basis, we bid for 16-inch
shells approximately the same rate per
pound as that whict the Navy Depart
ment actually awarded a 14-imch shell
contract one year ago.
