Proudly Our Men and Women Wear Their Emblems of Honor

We are privileged to serve the war effort directly-in the making of important fire.control instruments. . . Our men and women won their first "E" Award in August 1941-their second in May 1942. It is now our privilege to fly our third flag-the Army-Navy Production Award pennant with two stars affixed * * [star symbols.] The regular K & E line is also in the service. Mechanical and civil engineers and draftsmen-engaged in war work-make daily use of K & F slide rules, drawing instruments, surveying instruments, drafting machines, tracing papers and tracing cloths.
