From The American Horologist magazine, January 1942

To U. H. A. of A. Members


During the past year the United Horological Association of America has completed many accomplishments. These have been enumerated from time to time in your copy of THE AMERICAN HOROLOGIST.  During the same period the industry is proud of the things we have done and the gains we have made.


All this has been possible because of the interest the individual member took in the organization. The strength of the United Horological Association is not in the State or in the National organization, but in the individual member and his Guild. You are the contact we have with the public and on your actions depends our standing in the communities.


Your officers deeply a pprecia te the fact that you have seen fit to associate with us and help us this year. We hope to see you at a meeting of your Guild so that we may personally tell you how much we enjoy your support.


With the coming of another year many problems confront the Horologist. The problem of war and possibly the problem of the sort of peace which will follow the war. Two duties also confront us; the duty we owe our country and the duty to our fellow watchmaker. While we can accomplish some good while working individually, the most beneficent results can be obtained when working thru an organization such as the United Horological Association of America.


Won't you get in touch with your Secretary if you have not already done so and renew for 1942 today. We need your help and membership more than ever.


Fraternally yours,
ORVILLE R. HAGANS,
National Executive Secretary
U. H. A. of A.
