Such Is the slogan adopted by the

As a starter, three vessels will be
launched from the yard this month. All
are being constructed for the Emergency

ways are vacated keels will be laid for
five other vessels for the Emergency

In June or July It Is expected the
plant will begin work on the latest
contract announced—for four big steel
vessels, supposedly for an English cor
poration. A change has been made In
this contract. Instead of four ships of
6.500 tons each, two monst rs of 10.600
