75 Years Ago
Tuesday afternoon Wilson Smith, of the Hamburg Boiler Works, received a telegram with a Christmas Message to the employees of his plant, which manufacture boilers for defense purposes. The message: The Government Christmas Greeting from Washington D. C., to the Men and Women of the Hamburg Boiler Works, Inc., Hamburg PA. On this sacred day of our Lord we, the soldiers on the firing line, give thanks to you soldiers on the production line, for the sinews of war that made Victory possible. We are dedicating this Christmas Day to the defeat of our enemies— yes, this Christmas Day, the day after and every day thereafter until we establish peace on earth and good will to men. ( singed) MacArthur.
