The high-quality, complete proteins, the B vitamins and the minerals of meat are essential to the good physical condition of our fighting forces. A 90-day advance supply of food is needed for every man in training. An eight-month reserve is needed for every man 'overseas. Every ship sunk, every shift in the progress of the war can increase the need. Such are the calls coming in for the sides of beef and pork which used to be available at your neighborhood meat store. The meat and livestock industries have caken on a job of helping feed our fighters, providing meat for our fighting allies through Lend-Lease, and trying to meet the demands 'of a harder working civilian population with plenty of money to spend. More than 1200 American meat packing houses and nearly 1000 sausage makers are bending into this gigantic task. Millions of patriotic livestock producers are working with them in "backing the attack." PROTONS ARC ESSENTIAL TO LIFE All meat beef, pork, lamb, veal, and sausage contains complete, highest quality proteins. riboflavin, niacin) and important minerals (iron, copper, phosphorus). The human body does not store these nutritional essentials to any appreciable extent; you rauet get them from the dairy food you cat. Remember, the flavor of meat is not rationed. Even a little meat changes the character of the whole meal. Supplement the proteins of meat with meat's "allia in protein poultry, fish, mk, eggs and cheese. Keep up on proiaina.
