The Record of Equipment Manufacturers

Cinema-Allied Industries Win 375 Awards, Comprising 107 Flags and 268 More Stars

War workers in 4,283 of the nations top-flight war production facilities earned the Army-Navy HE" Award for their part in the defeat of the Axis powers. This number includes the Navy "E" Awards made prior to July, 1942, when the Navy "E," the Army HA," and the Army-Navy Munitions Board tiStar" Awards were merged and became known as the Army-Navy CE" Award.

Representing only about 5 per cent of the estimated war plants in the nation, those plants meeting the stringent eligibility requirements ranged in size from a one-man plant to large corporations and included facilities which converted from peace to war production, as well as new plants built especially for war purposes.

The Army-Navy RE" Award was granted only to facilities which were particularly outstanding in production for the War and Navy Departments. Excellence in quality and quantity of production were two of the determining factors in granting awards. Others ine

cluded (a) the overcoming of production obstacles, (b) low rate of absenteeism, (c) avoidance of work stoppages, (d) maintenance of fair labor standards, (e) training of additional labor forces, (f) effective management, (g) record on accidents, health, sanitation, and plant protection, (h) utilization of sub-contracting facilities, (i) conservation of critical and strategic materials. Plants which maintained an outstanding record of performance for six months after receiving the original Army-Navy RE" Award were granted a Star Award, indicated by a white star on their original PEP flag. Additional stars would be won by continuing outstanding performance for succeeding six-month periods until the dag carried four stars, after which the interval was increased to one year.

Of the 4,283 plants that were granted the REP Award, eight had won six Star Awards when the program was ended. Of the remaining Awards, 763 had been granted one Star Award; 723, two Star

Awards; 776, three Star Awards; 820, four Star Awards; and 206, five Star Awards.

The final Awards were granted at the August (1945) meetings of the Army and Navy Boards for Production Awards and both Boards have been subsequently dissolved.

Plants which won the Award are at liberty to continue flying the ArmyNavy "E" Award dag, and to make use of the Award insignia in their publicity and advertising, while their employes, entitled to receive the Army-Navy BE" Award pins, may continue to wear them.

The following list includes all the plants normally manufacturing motionpicture equipment, or material utilized by theatres, that won the Army-Navy RE" Award for outstanding war production, but it does not include plants whose Awards were withdrawn or canceled. The figure at the right is the number of renewal Stars received by the companies.

The motion-picture industry may well be proud of its manufacturers.
