But before those torpedoes are launched the^hell must be man* ufactured at one place, the explosive at another, and the assembly completed at a third, and then transported to ocean cargo vessels. All of these operations require extensive rail service. By the same token, foods must be transported from farm to processor, from processor to consumer. And fighting men must be moved from home to camp, from camp to camp, and to ports of embarkation. This transportation is the job the railroads are performing. , r , Men, munitions, supplies—all are being moved in quantities unheard of before. It's the biggest transportation problem in fc|story--a problem which is being bandied swiftly, efficiently,' by American railroads.
