Extensive Trackage Needed More than 125 mites of railroad i rack will be laid at iho depot— more trackage than vised by the Cgden union station, one of the largest railroad terminals in the v/est. The 104 warehouses are designed 10 hold equipment Tor more than 600,000 troops. The depot will serve .all army posts west of Chicago from its strategic location, which is almost equi-clistant from all important Pacific Coast defense centers. The contractors on the first eight warehouses—Al Johnson and James Leek Company of Minneapolis—have until the end ol" 1941 to finish their task. Lieut.-Cor. Elmer G. Thomas, constructing- quartermaster, hopes for funds from this session ofCon- to award contracts for other units so the entire .project can be rushed to completion as America's army grows under the selective service program.

Nagaoka of Fresno, Califs Japanese Times fired his pressman, Tatsumi Watanabe, the disgruntled pressman took a pot-shot at him, succeeded in overturning eight cases containing some 300,000 Japanese typographical characters. Result: the Times won't publish for a while, until Ml'. Nagaoka, above, sorts "pied" type. by-three-mile rectangle, bounded on two of its sides by transcontinental railroad lines. The land and water rights for the area were purchased partly by $100.000 raised in 10 days by' the Ogden C h a m b c r of Commerce, which donated the land to the army. Decision of ^the army to place the depot here was' influenced mainly by the strategic location of Ogden. which in addition to being conveniently close to the Pacific Coast is within a few miles of the large munitions depot at Sunset, south of here; Hill field, new army airdrome under construction adjacent to the munitions depot, and to Salt Lake City, home of the 5th Air Base group of the air corps. Foodstouffs—staples and perishables—will be store in, the warehouses, in addition to regular army field equipment. Officers estimate 2.500 persons will be employed eventually at the depot.
