tiorn of an alternate global
communications (enter for
use in case present Arnmy,
Navy, and Air Force facili-
ties are knocked out by
enemy attack. The task of
carving this top-secret head-
quarters o(lt of solid rock

without industrial explosives
and excavating know-how.
Most businesses are helped today
by Hercules' business . . . the
production of synthetic resins,
cellulose products, chemical cot-
ton, terpene chemicals, rosin and
rosin derivatives, chlorinated
products, and many other chemi-

customers, Hercules has helped
improve the processing or per-
