[blocks in formation]

The Bureau of Engraving and Printing of the Treasury Department manufactures all paper money of the Government, all stamps, including revenue stamps, all official checks, drafts, war

rants, commissions, certificates, transportation requests, and food and cotton order stamps.

The expenditures for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1941, aggregated $13,203,911.53, an increase of 8.74 per cent compared with the previous year. The work is measured in the number of printed sheets delivered. The total number of sheets delivered for the fiscal year was 460,614,558. Of these sheets 91,787,983 were of currency of which 3,650,004 were U. S. notes, 76,775,012 were of silver certificates, and 11,362,967 were of Federal reserve notes.

The total weight of this paper currency manufactured during the fiscal year would be about 1,030 tons. It would have loaded about 26 40-ton freight cars. Of these notes 64,275,004 sheets were $1 bills. Of bonds, notes and certificates there were delivered 13.424,214 sheets. Of the total number of sheets, 314,295,611 were of postage and

other stamps. In the year, approximately 3,295 tons of stamps were manufactured, or about 82 carloads of them.

The other miscellaneous forms manufactured at about 410 tons, and would have made approxithis plant consumed 41,106,750 sheets, weighing mately 10 carloads.

The major task of the Bureau is the production of paper money. The face value of all the notes printed aggregated $3,994,860,000. The paper money is all printed from steel engraved plates. Since steel engravings are now little used except in printing money, practically all of the steel engravers in the country work here and for one private agency engaged in the manufacture of money for other nations.

The engravings are transferred to flat plates which now print 12 notes at an impression. Four of these plates are placed on a flat-bed power


Infinite care is taken that every note shall be perfect and that none of the distinctive paper is lost in the process of manufacture. Each note is subjected to a score of examinations.

The Pledge to the Flag

Source: Historical and Official Records

(Taught in many of the schools and repeated by the pupils daily)
"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America,
And to the Republic for which it stands.
One Nation, indivisible,

With liberty and justice for all."

The Pledge to the Flag, according to a report of the Historical Committee of the United States Flag Association (May 18, 1939), was written by Francis Bellamy, (August 1892), a member of the editorial staff of The Youth's Companion, in Boston, Mass. It was first repeated at the exercises in connection with the celebration of Columbus Day (October 12, 1892, Old Style). The idea of this national celebration on Columbus Day was largely that of James B. Upham, one of the Junior proprietors of The Youth's Companion.

Francis Hopkinson, a signer of the Declaration of Independence, was probably the designer of the Stars and Stripes-not Betsy Ross of Philadelphia,

who made the flags. He also designed the first Great Seal of the United States, and a number of coins and several items of paper currency in the early days of the Republic.

Hopkinson, born in Philadelphia (Sept. 21, 1737) and a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania, was the first native American composer of a secular song, "My Days Have Been So Wondrous Free." He was a lawyer and later a judge in New Jersey, and then in Pennsylvania. He died in Philadelphia (May 9, 1791.) His portrait, painted by himself, hangs in the rooms of the Pennsylvania Historical Society, Phila. He played the organ and the harpsichord.
