J, L. Scroggin at Tuesday's Kiwanis luncheon. . Captain Scroggin is in charge of the Division of Identification of the State Highway Patrol, having been a police officer since 192o. He stated that his duty has thrown him in contact with all types of people and that faulty citizenship, or lack of it, is the big fault of our nation. "In building good citizenship it is necessary to start with the younger generation," he stated. "The ciuali- ficotions of good citizenship can be condensed into the following requirements: Honesty in all dealing; having the confidence of his associates; Christianity and affiliation with some church; ability to get along with his fellow men, and character. "Character is what you arc— what you believe in. It has been said that a person's character can be decided by what he would do it he knew it would never be found out. When character and honor is vi. lost, all is lost." A piano request number was i played by Tom Lavin. Captain H. T Shull, a former member of the - club, but now with the U. S. Army. , was a guest of the club at the luncheon. Skip Bombing—It Can't Miss!

A vast cycle of experiments were tried and tested and the results compared. Trom all this effort T HE U.S. ARMY Ordnance Department, early in 1942, asked one of our executives if we had a. factory near a good supply of water, of sufficient size to make small calibre ammunition at the rate of many millions every twenty- four hours. We had such a factory on the Ohio River with enough feet of floor space. "FROM CARS TO BUUETS FOR TOMMY GUNS, PISTOLS, REVOLVERS" assisted'the training of these production specialists who, in turn, were to train the workers and supervise the operation of the many departments of the plant.- . The first finished ammunition" produced in this newly organized plant went on test in May, 1942. The cartridge cases were then made of brass. Brass is an extremely vital war material. Could steel be used instead? Could steel be worked over the machinery and tools that were provided for the use of brass? Could the steel be treated to withstand the corrosion It was well placed near additional unused land and far enough from the city to allow the storage of powder and the loading and testing of ammunition. The* work of preparation was started immediately. The automobile machinery in the plant, which could not be used, was dismantled and put elsewhere. It was replaced by new and different equipment. A specialized laboratory was installed and staffed with engineers, metallurgists, and technicians drawn from our "TESTING FOR EVERY BATTLE FRONT CONDITION" widely" ^versified staff. Production executives and specialists were also selected from our own personnel. While the factory was being prepared for production, the Frankford arsenal "COUID IT BE DONE WITH STEEL?" of a long sea voyage and to resist successfully the humidity of the tropics and the sub-zero temperatures of the Arctic? The U. S. Army Ordnance Department — and our own engineers, metallurgists and technicians believed ic could. More engineering talent —this time chemists —were added to the laboratory staff and the larger and more complete Chrysler Corporation's laboratories, in Detroit, were also directed to the solution of this problem. The first of the new steel casings were made in the month of August, 1942. They t were pretty good. Then began severe testing,— spraying with wet salt air, burying in salty mu d marshes washed by the tide.-storing in hot damp rooms and open exposure to the "THOUSANDS PER MINUTE" came a standardized product made of steel, and approved for use on all the battle fronts. The making of this ammunition is really the art of producing many pieces rapidly—many thousands per minute, every day, 6 days a week. Ninety-nine operations arc performed to take each piece of ammunition from the lead, steel and powder stage to the formed, loaded, tested and packed, finished article— ready to shoot,-with every piece perfect in .shape, finish, and firing efficiency. We have made our first billion of this steel ammunition. Not that this is a top record for ammunition making but, to us, it is a milestone passed on the road to Victory. We will pass the second and third billion with much less emotion but we really got a thrill out of joining the ranks of the important producer,, of ammunition. With this change to steel we release, with every billion rounds, thousands of tons of "A UTTtE THING BECAME BIG" brass. This brass can now be used in war proi duction where no other substitute is possible. A finished round of ammunition weighs only a few ounces. Little things often c/o become really big and important.
