THEREGALSHOE-SHOP STYLE ''PLUS" QUALITY AND SUPREMACY AT SI.OO TO $6.00 Bulletin No. 1 A Mistake in the Policy of the Bethlehem Steel Company To the People: The Senate of the United States has passed a hill 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 that manufacturers of armor have "gouged" the country in the past, and that a government plant is necessary to secure armor more cheaply. The mistake of the Bethlehem Steel Company has been that it has kept quiet We have allowed irresponsible assertions to be made for so long without denial, that many people now believe them to be proven facts. We shall make the mistake of silence no longer. « Henceforth we shall pursue a policy of publicity. Misinformation will not be permitted to go uncor rected. It is and has been the policy of our Company to deal with the American Government fairly and squarely. J We shall henceforth place the details of our relations with the Government before the American People. The United States has for twenty years obtained the highest grade of armor and has paid a lower price for it than has any other great naval power. Flfnir«i officially compiled for the Senate Committee on Maval iffain under conditions prevailing J tint before the European War, the chief naval A" D# ®s ,fcow <kit Ins (kne prior* for armon ' of the world were P»7- Englanri, *503 per ton; France, «4fl0; Germany, 9400; Japan, #100; UNITED STATES, $428. 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 shall nam. as fair ,1100#00# or THE rzoTl * a CHAS.
