Why some things get better all the time
HEALTH, strength and zest for life-of youngsters, of work-
ers, of all of us-depend on food. Food produced by the mil-
lions of tons yearly. And each year our farmers have more
efficient means to do their tremendous job.
  The modern farmer has a tractor, a truck, and uses
specialized farm tools-all with parts made increasingly of
alloy-toughened steels and of plastics, for sturdier, more
efficient service. His milking machine has parts of rust-
resistant stainless steel. Chemically fortified feeds grow
healthier livestock. New chemical sprays protect his crops
from insects and plant diseases. And improved fertilizers
restore vital elements to his soil.
  From care of the life-giving soil to precious harvest, the
farmer's means for food production are steadily improving
. .. because into these means go better and better materials.
  Producing better materials for the use of science and
industry and the benefit of mankind is the work of UNION
CARBIDE.
  Basic knowledge and persistent research are required,
particularly in the fields of science and engineering. Work-
ing with extremes of heat and cold-frequently as high as
6000' or as low as 3000 below zero, Fahrenheit-and with
vacuums and great pressures, Units of UCC now separate
or combine nearly one-half of the many elements of the
earth.
