When it comes to national defense, one trained man is worth a dozen untrained men!

That's true of America's armed forces - which need chemists, mechanics, machinists, electricians, radio experts, accountants and a dozen other classifications of trained men. And trained men in America's armed forces get better pay and higher ranking!

It's true of America's industry—“the front line of national defense." Today, business and industry are crying for skilled, trained manpower! Never has

there heen greater opportunity for the man who has mastered his line of work through study and practice!

Yes, the trained man in uniform and the trained man in industry are “partners in the business of defense.” Whether you're serving Uncle Sam in barracks or factory, farm or office, TRAINING can make you a better citizen, a real asset to your country!
