Bogle, state director of the production division of the war production board In Helena, the capital city's partici pation in war production work has in creased rapidly in the last several weeks. Already the Calrd Engineering works of Helena, now a beehive of ac tivity, ts turning out war materials— chiefly for the navy but some also for the army. Recently Helena took another Im portant stride In the war production picture when the school of aeronautics and related trades, operating under the direction of Its founder, L. W. Pahmer, was granted a subcontract to manufacture approximately $100,000 worth of low-pressure valves for the navy. The work on the valves will be done by approximately 30 students and Instructors at the school as a sub contract from the Lovelace Motor Co. at Bozeman which received a large contract from the navy. Work on the contract now awaits only the approval of allocation for the purchase of materials. All the work on the valves will be done at the school's shops at the Helena airport where equipment and other facilities are adequate to complete the entire Job with ease in the required time. Students will be paid regular wages for all work performed. It is expected that the number of students working on the valve or other war contracts will be increased greatly In the near future amd that the government will Do You Want to BUILD A RIG SKID A DERRICK LAY A PIPELINE BUILD A CAMP »1 £ ' ?

PHONE CUT BANK. MONTANA I. HUGO ARONSON take full advantage of the aeronautics school for further participation In the war production scheme. Director Bogie has announced that all plants in the state capable of en gaging In war work have been award ed contracts and added that in the near future subcontracting will reach Into many part* of the state, giving small plants opportunities to jump on the bandwagon which American In dustry is driving at an unprecedented speed to crush the axis. He said every sawmill In the western part of Mon tana Is operating at full capacity on army and navy contracts. The Calrd Engineering works re ceived a large order to manufacture complete valves for the navy. For sev eral weeks Calrd workers have been working on two large mooring buoy Jobs, only a small portion of which have been completed. Also being manufactured by the Calrd workers are valve stems in many sizes for the navy. As these valves may be used on vital parts of navy equipment, the high quality of the Calrd workmanship may prove of ex treme importance In the outcome of future tests of strength between American and enemy fleets. And real izing their Important role in this war for survival, the Calrd workers are | concentrating upon superior work as well as record breaking. Work on equipment for shipways, 1 consisting of cast Iron and bronze castings has just started at the plant. As the work on this order progresses, much of it will have to be subcontract ed to maintain delivery schedules. Calrd also Is turning out 100,000 pounds of counterweight castings for loading cranes for the navy. In addition to the large navy con tracts, the Calrd plant has an army air corps contract to manufacture fire control doors for airport buildings for ammunition storage purposes. These doors will weigh 3,000 pounds.
