" As a freight handler he's busier than he has ever been. America's fighting forces need food, supplies and the mate* rials of war, and he plays a mighty important part in getting these things under way. He's proud of the job he is doing—' we're proud of him for the way he does it. The freight handler is symbolic of all railroad employes.
