Vol. IV No. 6 ……. Cover: The drawing of the American Flag and the two Army-Navy “E” pennants on the front cover this month is the work of George L. Stachnick, Art Department, Engineering. It is a very fine example of what can be done with an air brush, as most of the painting was made with this medium. The top “E” pennant is the one recently awarded The Glenn L. Martin Company for excellence of production at the Baltimore plants. The lower pennant with stars flies over The Glenn L. Martin-Nebraska Company, Omaha, which has maintaineda high excellence for B-26 Marauder and B-29 Superfortress manufacture for nearly two years. …….
