AKRON, OHIO 19* TO THOSE WHO FIT THE ARMY AND NAVY "E" A symbol of patriotic effort, the Army .and Navy "E" is Industrial America's most coveted prize. Having earned it speaks volumes for any plant. And earn it one must— by long hours of hard work; by unflagging enthusiasm for the, job to be done; by almost fanatic devotion to the cause for which we are all fighting. There is something else, too, that every producer must have—the cooperation of the railroads. They bring to industry the materials to be fabricated for war use. With rails extending even into the remotest ~ f —• *""'- 1 regions, they pick v up^ the precious S|" and carry them right to industry's dooH to camp or seaport the processed mater! so necessary in fighting a victorious war. "North Western" is one of America's railroad? in the transportation of war essentials. We are play a part in this mighty effort—and proud not on! serve those who fly the Army and Navy "E" but also others who are engaged in freedom's cause. These indus? trial fighters will continueto have our enthusiastic coopera- 1 tion, and the service we render will be limited ~ only by the supply of materials we are able to secure to keep our rolling stock in top condition.
