By JOHN DEVOGEL January 18, 1942
With 1942 ahead of us, let Organization, Education, and Legislation be our watch words.
United in Purpose and Effort is the fundamental principles of our National, State and Local Associations.
This year we must press forward in our efforts of strengthening our State Association, if ye are going to help ourselves. Now is, the Time. It stands to reason that Horology cannot expect a position of parity with its colleagues in other professions, nor can it rightfully demand or assume a full share of responsibility in the public minds, without an educational program.
Horologists should be willing to join any constructive effort to promote Horology to the consuming public and should likewise make it his duty to meet from time to time and discuss our mutual problems. Until current Horological education is fused with every day Horological practice, we will not accomplish our aim for better Horology.
The future. therefore rest squarely upon our shoulders and all horologists in America. We therefore represent the root, stem and plant, the very life blood of Horology.
So let us in this year of 1942, unite and coordinate our scattered units within our state, and let's all work according to the fundamental principle of unity and cooperation in promoting and elevating Horology.
