WAR JOBS WELL DONE MEAN LOWER FUTURE POWER COST SCARCELY anything you can name fills so many differ ent war jobs as the General Motors Diesel engine. In tanks, landing boats, patrol boats, trucks, tractors and auxiliaries -ev erywhere sturdy depend ability is needed-they're sup plying power for our fighting forces. The result is that, though plant facilities have mush roomed and production records are broken time and time again, everything we can make is hustled off to war. But there is this important compensation. These acceler- ated war demands are advanc ing GM Diesel production and technique years faster than could the demands of ordinary peacetime manufacture. So we can look forward to lower-cost power and to new peacetime applications for these engines when the war is won-to broadened fields where this power will serve. New eras of railroading follow in the footsteps of war. Another new era of railroadingis assured in the wake of this war. General Motors Diesel locomotives already are establishing new stand ards of transportation. ENGINES.....15 to 250 H.P ......DETROIT DIESELENGINEDIVISION, Qetrot, Mich.
