A WORD FROM OUR NATIONAL PRESIDENT
COMPILED IN THE FOLLOWING PAGES are words of wisdom uttered by outstanding authorities on all phases of America's maritime industry. They were delivered before two stimulating sessions of the American Merchant Marine Conference.
All too often we in shipping are accused of talking to ourselves and the accusation alas, is all too true. Though this publication of the Conference Proceedings, which will find its way into universities, libraries and the Halls of Congress, the Propeller Club of the United States is endeavoring in a modest way to educate those outside the shipping fraternity in the cause in which all of us so firmly believe.
Without American ships our freedom ends at the waterfront. I urge you to read carefully the sound advice of the authorities whose work is represented in this volume and to pass along their thinking to your non-marine minded neighbors.
Without American ships our freedom ends at the waterfront-without an educated citizenry, we may well find ourselves without American ships.
