DOOLEY DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE ANNUAL RURAL SCHOOL DAY AT GOOD HOPE FRIDAY A BIG EVENT • Put a mile of loaded freight cars behind this locomotive and watch the way she works. You'll be surprised how quickly she gets 'em under way—how smoothly she keeps 'em rolling—how consistently she brings 'em in on time. Naturally, we're proud of the job she is doing. for America—the vast quantities of war materials she helps to transport to our fighting forces. And the effort she puts forth for Uncle Sam is being duplicated by every other member of {'North Western's" equipment family. It's an "all-out" program. But "North Western" isn't overlooking service to the home folks. When we're not doing things for Uncle Sam we're doing them for you. It's a. big job and keeps us mighty busy—but we like it.
