Being No. 2 of a series of announcements dealing with our
accomplishments during the war. The first appeared in
December issue; others will follow monthly.

Thuringia and Bohemia, countries which are now the subject of universal discussion, had

for several hundred years prior to the great war almost a monopoly of the glass indus-
try of the world. Glass blowing establishments elsewhere in Europe and in America
were called upon to manufacture only apparatus of special design or to do repair
work. That is to say, all regular laboratory apparatus,

the product of the labor of
thousands of skilled glass workers of Thuringia and Bohemia, was imported to

America by case lots.
Import houses like ours, who had in the past depended on them, were from the very beginning

of the war entirely cut off from these countries, and it needs no vivid imagination
to picture the serious condition then confronting laboratory supply houses, consider-
ing that there were not enough skilled glass blowers in France, England and the
United States organized industrially to meet even a small part of the American

Eimer and Amend faced this situation, fortunately, with the largest supply of chemical

laboratory glassware of any house in the United States. This enabled us to fill
thousands of orders-sometimes with a suggested substition as to size or style

while we were preparing for extensive manufacturing on our own premises.
Adding another shop to our equipment at that time soon doubled our output; but it was

easy to see that much more strenuous efforts were necessary to meet the demands
which kept pouring in upon us. Firstly, additional factory space was needed.
Secondly, additional equipment and machinery were needed. Thirdly, experienced
glass blowers had to be atiracted to our shops. Fourthly, promising young appren-
tices had to be engaged to learn the elements of glass blowing, glass grinding, cali-
brating, etching, and the many tricks necessary to this highly skilled trade ; a trade

which we have learned to respect as little short of an art.
How far we succeeded may be judged from the fact that today our force of glass blowers is

nearly seven times its 1914 size ; our output is possibly ten to fifteen times what it
then was ; and with it all we have maintained a standard HIGHER than that of the
far-famed Thuringian manufacturers. Our unequalled facilities are now available

for peace-lime orders.
A substantial share of credit for these accomplishments belongs to our customers and

friends. Without their forbearance, we should not have been able to make such
rapid progress toward factory production. In offering sincere thanks to our sup-
porters for their patience and good will during that loying period of uncertainty,
when irritating delays in shipments occurred none too infrequently, we would only
add that our efforts shall be continued, now that the war is over, in the hope of mak-
ing this industry, fostered by their tolerant cooperation, a permanent one, worthy of
other American achievemenis.
