frohi soldiers were nearly all ap-
plauding the convention's action.
J lie saiil most of the soldiers dis-

... jeeps and trucks and other kinds of motor-

good old horse in modern warfare."
"It's true of lots of things in this war,
Eben. Every day we hear of new tactics and
requirements and new uses of products. For
instance, take the alcohol that is used for
war purposes. In World War 1, this vitally
needed product was med mostly in making
smokeless powder, chemical warlare materi-
als and medical supphc.3. Today it mu*t do
far more... it must provide the base for such
indispensable products as synthetic rubber,
shatterproof glass, lacquers, plastics and
many other of our requirements so essential
"As a result hundreds of millions of gal-
lons are required every year... half of which
is being produced by the beverage distillin?
