National Geographic : 1941 Nov
ON THE WHARVES of Liverpool and Singapore, in a freighter's hold halfway across the Atlantic, in a truck on the Burma Road, you will find them-three words stencilled on a thousand boxes and bales: "Made in U.S.A." Yesterday, three big words to look for. But today they stand for more than the unequalled engineering and production that have made them familiar on every dock and pier in the world. They stand for the productive strength of a free people-a productive strength that can not be matched; they stand for a deter mination to "deliver the goods"-a deter mination that will not be thwarted. And in the ports of the world's embattled democracies, where men are hourly risk ing their lives to take delivery, they stand for freedom itself! To keep this great flood of goods moving is the most important job in the world today. Wherever it moves, General Elec tric helps to provide motors and propulsion equipment to keep it moving. In trains hauling ore to America's factories; in factories building guns and tanks and planes; in ships carrying oil to Britain and food to China; in destroyers and cruisers and battleships patrolling two oceans-the words "General Electric" stand beside "Made in U.S.A." General Electric Company, Schenectady, New York, U.S.A. GENERAL * ELECTRIC 952-234E1-211 "Mention the Geographic-It identifies you."
