We Sf recker Urges Unity at SPG Explains Meaning of Construction During War Major Werner C. Strecker, Con structing Quartermaster, Southwest- en Proving Ground, addressed an assembly of workers at the project today explaining what the war means to the construction program underway at the project. The Major told the assembled employees that the situation now was far different. "Formerly," he said, "we worked as a nation preparing for whatever eventuality lay ahead. the group that did the work. Fore- mem, craftsmen, laborers, timekeepers, water boys, and all the other workers on this job who have kept the wheels running are the ones who have kept the job progressing running on schedule. You recall that last night the You recall that the president, ii his speech to tiic people, spoke of i long hard war. He made no nttemp to cushion the facts that we faced a powerful, well-equipped, and crafty enemy. I feel that you who build, who know wuat work, hardships, and exposure lo weather means, will show up to advantage in any emergency. I know you do not ask for a soft job.

The project official, were unable to predict just wha chances in number of workers em ployed and hours worked might oc ciir within the coming week. However, it was pointed out that any decrease in employment was unlikely before Christmas. A survey made Thursday revealed that project workers are buying heavily in the local stores. With many workers on the job seven days a week and the present inclement weather, the liklihood of much Christmas shopping being done elsewhere was held unlikely.

The obvious sincerity of the speaker, arid the gravity of his words impressed the group deeply. The speech, asking for renewed effort to rush completion of the ordnance facility, stressed the importance of the project in the way he spoke of the high courage required to stick to routine tasks that were as necessary as flying bombers and carrying a rifle. Major Strecker spoke to approximately 2000 laborers and craftsmen at the project this morning at 7:15, and another group assembled in the cafeteria at noon. Following is a complete text of the Major's address: Employees of the Southwestern Proving Ground, or, if I may, Fellow Workers: , You have been called together at this time in order that you may be told just how the war in which we are engaged affects this job. You are all aware of the developments of the past few days. You know that the United States has been invaded—also, that the purpose for which our vast defense program was planned, is at hand. Our slogan, "Time is short," is now out of date. The time has come. If every unit of our National Defense Program was completed and in oepration today, we would just be starting. I am sure you have considered the president's message to the nation and wondered how you, as a citizen of the greatest government on earth, could do the most to help the cause. You will recall that the president did not mince words. He stated 'facts. He spoke of bad news and the certainty of more bad news that we must accept as part of the fortunes of war. He detailed evidence that we faced a ruthless and cunning enemy. However, what he said means you and me and every individual on this job. He said, "Balanced against the ruthlcssness of our enemy is the power of a united people which will not be satisfied with anything short of a complete victory. That phras$, "A United People", must be typical of this project from now on in a vivid and concrete night, we have been working seven days a week, but we have just begun. Before, we were working as a peaceful nation, preparing for whatever lay ahead. Now, the situation is different. We work as a vital part of >'a battle already begun, as a nation that has been invaded, a nation that, overnight, must double and triple production of war materials. 1 say to you that your country and mine needs the Southwestern Proving Ground completed today. If i 1 were in full use at this time, i would make us a stronger foe. I can conceive of no work more essential than to complete as rapidly as possible a plant which is built to test shells. When our forces, our ships and our war planes shoot we want the explosives used to be of the best. I ask you, and I know you arc ready, to give to this job in th future all the loyalty, all the streng th, and all the best resource tha is in you.

This type of loyalty is of the highest. It is the essence of patriotism. You will work without the account- erments of war. You will have no bands and buglers, no fanfare that accompanies battle. Instead, you will have cold weather, rains, and other prosaic foes that require the finest in will power and courage to fight. You are soldiers serving without many advantages of the man in uniform, but we are in this war up to our necks and we will have to keep swinging with all we have to win. Now is no time to think of production schedules as a measure of progress. We must think of finishing this job as soon as possible and then doing it in half that time. The goal of 80 per cent by January 3rd, must be reset, eighty-five per cent or more. Now there arc many factors involved in war. We must all think of our responsibility toward our families. Jn short, making a living. As our ex*- pandcd defense programs gather momentum, you will all receive many work opportunities. I just want to say one word in this respect. You are working in the service of the greatest government on earth. When this job is over, there will be others needing your services. You can be as- The 42 Ford is the Best Looking, Best Biding, Best Illuming Low Priced Car ever Built Choice of Sixes or Eights ;ood in a speech.

You are all aware, I am sure, that throughout the construction industry, this job has made for itself a name for outstanding accomplishment, united effort, and smooth operation. You have, to use a well known phrase of our President, "Fought a Good Fight." The record on this job is clear of any unpatriotic acts. No one has been guilty on this job of the many deeds wanting in patriotism that have marked some projects of a similar nature. This situation is a credit, of course, to good leadership. What we like to call "Key People" can say they have been wise executives: But we all know that the group to whom most credit is due is of Japan is broken, finally and forever. • *.*.
