Bristol Company Poster On War Is Ranked High A Bristol company war poster appears second on the list of thirteen posters selected by the publishers of the Labor-Management News or Washington, IX C,, sponsored by the National War Production .Board, as outstanding evidence, of the definite' boost to aid the war .effort contribution by the posters to "promote Productive Power" throughout the nation. Other Connecticut firms signally honored wore the Raybcstos-Man h.attan Co., Bridgeport and the United Aircraft Corp., of East. Hartford. The Bristol company poster is captioncd "Our Bomber" — How Bristol Helps to Strike the Blows that Blast the Axis. It reminds the Bristol employes th.-U they help give the bomber a "skin" by making instruments that help forge tho magnesium and aluminum, for its fusilage; that Bristol Screws arc used today to assemble many airplane motors; that Bristol Controls used in synthetic rubber manufacture arc essential to the safety and uniform quality-of its tires; that the Navigator is helped by the aviat'fon instruments made at Bristol's, without which accurate r.aviftaiion .on long flights would bo impossible; and that Bristol instruments, used ir. making Aw.'iionium Nitrate for'air- plane bombs, keep up. output, insure against defects of varying quality.
