Upon this new factory, will be built our future as it- self is built on our past. Both are the same. The latter is but a broadening of the former. The new foundation is our pledge that we will build in the days and years to come as-we have in the past. v If we take pride in the completed substance of our ideal, it is but natural. Such achieve- ment is not given to all. Yet, if we have achieved, it is because earnestly we fol- lowed business' basic he who builds greatly must build worthily. Be- cause we believed in the triumph of manu- factured goodness the ultimate reward of an ideal that profited the buyer as well as the seller. We have valued our good name with hundreds of'thousands of men as the most precious thing we own.
