Logonsport In the Post Don't Know Yet" New Logansport Industry Is Community Asset Logansport's most recent industrial organization, the National Steel Construction Company, has in the short space of less than a year taken a firm root in the city's life and has proven a worthy and valuable addition to this growing community. At the same time, the establishment and advancement of this newest factory here is a tribute to its faith in Logansport, to the city's present and future facilities, and to the scores of people, who work there turning out quality. hot water heaters of all description. Pictures showing the National Steel plant here and some of its operations are on another page in today's Pharos-Tribune. The National Steel Construction Co. is located on the northside of the city just west of Third Street, in a modern building which is a credit to the community. Construction on this project was started in June of 1948, with the first personnel starting work in December of the same year. Today, less than a year later, the firm now employs approximately 120 people manufacturing a widely accepted product turned out with the most modern machinery available. Little, known to most local citizens is the fact that National Steel is well known elsewhere for its work with physically handicapped persons, and its Seattle plant was awarded the American Legion "National Employer Citation awerd for the excellence of its program in hiring physically handi-japped persons whose disabilities would render them. unemployable to most employers. Thirtyfour men, blind, wheel chair cases, and others, are now employed in National Steel's Seattle plant and have proven capable, dependable employees. Their employer has found them purposeful, ambitious, and productive. With an excellent record of progress during the first year of its location in Logansport, The National Steel Construction Company has carved its niche in the city's development, and has the well wishes of the entire community. - On* Year Aqo Parking meters went into operation this morning in the business district. x Mrs. Nellie Cleaver, 65, of .route 2, Cutler, succumbed in Memorial hospital.
