O N CHICAGO'S near southwest side there's a place that is as busy as a bargain basement on sale day. It is "North Western's" Wood Street Terminal Potato Yard. The area might well be called the distributing center for the'Tour Fs"—Fighting Foods for Fighting Forces: Not only is it the world's largest potato yard; it is also a depot for other vegetables—onions, cabbages, rutabagas. But their stay is brief. America and her uniformed boys must be fed—and soon a generous share of these foods is transferred to camps to become wholesome, tasty "chow." America's fighting forces are the best fed in theworldj ! ' Western's" job, as well as that of all other American railroads, is to help keep them so; Trainloads of food follow them wherever they go—a swift, uninterrupted movement of meats, fruits, vegetables and dairy products. Even the "hot dogs" that made the hazardous trip to the African Front might well have begun the first leg of their journey on a "North Western" train. The transportation of food is only one of "North Western's" war jobs. Moving men is another; hauling weapons and the materials from which they are made, still another. We are eager and proud to serve. But the extent to which we can do our job depends largely on oar ability to obtain an adequate supply of materials to keep our equipment in perfect condition.
