Hardships taught our'forefathers the virtue of self-reliance and the need'for co- cpef'ation. Thus, in the humble cradle of privation, the spirit of our Democracy was born. Our enemies foolishly ignored the enduring influence of our Nation's heritage when they jeered th'at we were too soft'to fight. Little did (hey dream that, almost overnight, free men could perfect the finest and best- ecjuipped fighting forces the world has ever seen. So, today when good citizens see an A card on a windshield, they recognize it as a symbol of what people can accomplish who have learned from experience to work together to'attain a common objective. That same spirit will win this war—and in peacetime that same unity of effort will keep America strong and prosperous for our men and women now on the fighting front. * * * Jn addition to supplying the armed forces with glider and bomber fuselage frames, wing parts, gun turret parts and foodstuffs, Anheuser-Busch produces material.1 which go into the manufacture of: Rubber-Aluminum • Munitions • Medicines • B Complex Vitamins • Hospital Diets-Baby Foods-Bread and other Bakery products •Vitamin-fortified cattle feeds •Batteries-Pa per-Soap and textiles—to name a few. Most Jalks are more tired tJian usual iiibeii they finish each wartime Jay.
