Ask the major

when you get a chance.

What about that arsenal

you've set up in the shop?

Get that damned junk out of here!

I've already conveyed your demands

to headquarters.

I want some peace.

Cash for the organization? Fine.

But get those guns out of here.

I don't want to hang on your account.

Waldzio, Lieutenant Hirschweg is here.

Bunks for the barracks.

Not bad at all.

What do you think, Lieutenant?

They don't look very comfortable.

We use only the best materials.

Here you are.

Top-quality.

Back to work!

More glue, damn it!

Hey, boy!

Hurry up!

Where's the damn glue?

Boy!

Get some more glue

from the storeroom.

Bring that glue

or I'll kick your ass!

Glue, damn it!

What glue?

We knock off in a minute.

Can't you lay off the kid for a sec?

Here. Get back to work.

Quitting time!

Take it easy, men.

This isn't a streetcar.

Let a man wash, you filthy bums.

You must work hard, my boy!

Work hard!

Good night.

Work and pray,

and you'll grow a hump!

Leave him alone, Dad.

They really ran you ragged today, eh?

I did that for -

Yes, it's been four years.

And no one helped me.

Don't look at me like a whipped pup.

I'm not gonna help you.

Fend for yourself.

Remember:
Don't trust anyone.

Stay out of trouble.

Rely only on yourself.

That's what I've been doing,

and look at me.

I'm a journeyman now.

I was just as grimy then

as you are now!

Now back to work.

Well?

Not bad for a beginner.

But a bit too much off the bottom.

Make it strong so it'll last,

for you and for me.

All right.

Let's nail on the trim.

"Give it a lick and make it stick. "

Cigarette?

Berg's building a new shop.

He's buying machines.

Business is good.

He's spending a lot, isn't he,

Mr. Sekula?

That's right.

Where does he get it from?
