June 21, 1948 To All ALPA Members to stand together, and definitely.

In the interim, let's all crack our National pilots' strike assessments into the Bookkeeping Department with the zing necessary to put real zip in the National strike battle and show the National boys on the picket lines that we are right by their sides pitching just as hard as they, and show G.T. Baker that his long embattled pilots are supported 100 percent by every member of the Air Line Pilots Association. With every good wish, I am Sincerely yours, AIR LINE PILOTS ASSOCIATION David L. Behncke, President DLB:vb:m
