POWER TO WAGE WAR AND TO SERVE PEACE America's farms are going to need GM Diesel power for their tractors. This sure, re liable, low-cost source of power will go far toward solv ing some of the farmer's most vexing problems. And not the least of these problems is to get more work done, faster and at lower cost in labor and mechanical power. GM Diesels will help. FROM the very beginning, GM Diesels have been tested in the crucible of war. They power tanks, heavy gun tractors and bulldozers; submarines and subchasers; in vasion boats and lighters. And everywhere, always, these weapons are proving worthy of the fine fighting men who are using them. That is because GM Diesel operation is based on simple and sound mechanical principles. GM Diesel construction is ex- ceptionally strong and uniformly precise - the way General Motors always builds. When normal life and living are resumed, GM Diesels will be as ready to step back into private life and resume service in peace as they were to go to war. And you will find them as capable of sure, reliable, low-cost performance on the toughest jobs at home as they are on fighting fronts the world over. ENGINES..15 to 250 H.P...
