Vol. VII No. 1 …… Cover: As varied and colorful as the industry they represent are the identification badges used by employes of the two plants of the Douglas Aircraft Company. This month they appear in four colors on the cover of the Douglas Airview. More than 200 different badges are in use at the Santa Monica and El Segundo plants. No attempt has been made to reproduce them all. Each color and design indicates zone and type of responsibility entrusted to the wearer. Symbolic of the many activities in America’s largest aircraft plant, the badges provide simple, efficient identification for 14,000 Douglas employees. ……. Contents:
