TheFirst Hun-dred Years.
Are, the Hardest
XAT will you be doing ten, fifteen
years from now? Fifteen years
seems a pretty long time to be worrying,
about, you say. Yet it's the fellow who
looks ahead who usually comes out on
top. He builds the foundation now.
The successes of today and tomorrow
are built on the foundations of yesterday.
In the utility field that statement is par-
ticularly true. A power station built today
anticipates the needs of the community
for manyr tomorrows. A transportation
system is laid to take care not only of the
present but of the future riders.
Stone & Webster finances, builds and
operates public utilities. It is constanIly
new ways, new ideas. The Stone &
Webster man is progressive. His business
makes him so. He pioneers because only
through pioneering may the service needs
of his public be met satisfactorily.
You're going to know Stone & Webster
when you leave college. You'll find an or-
ganization of men with sound judgment:
and upon whom you can depend. You'll
find the Stone &,Webster organization is
worth knowing and worth doing business
