Is it possible that a leading maker of
jet engine turbine blades had a hand in
giving Pat Deegan a fresh sandwich
today that was made last night?
It's perfectly logical to assume that the nation's leading
producer of alloying metals like chromium, manganese,
tungsten, and vanadium could become an expert on
their use in new forms of steel. One result is the devel-
opment of a new kind of stronger stainless steel.
  Nor would it be surprising that the nation's pioneer
and leading producer of plastic raw materials would
be selling plastic food bags with a new kind of fold-
lock top that locks in freshness. They're called "Glad"
Bags, and they keep Pat Deegan's lunch fresh even
though it was packed the night before.
  But you'd have every reason to doubt that two such
unlike activities could come from the same
company. Provided you didn't know about
Union Carbide.
  In fact, you'll come across lots of diversifi-
I
cations at Union Carbide. It's one of the world's largest
producers of chemicals, and it makes ingredients for
textiles, paint, and urethane foam for cushioning. It is
one of the most diversified private enterprises in the
field of atomic energy. As a world authority in super-
cold fluids, it produces tons of liquefied hydrogen,
oxygen, and nitrogen for fueling space vehicles. It's a
leader in carbon products and makes exhaust nozzle
liners for rockets, brushes for electric motors, and elec-
trodes for electric arc furnaces. And its consumer prod-
ucts include world-leading "Prestone" anti-freeze.
   In fact, few other corporations are so deeply in-
:       volved in so many different skills and activities
        that will affect the technical and production
        capabilities of our next century.
        The next century starts with Pat Deegan's lunch.
