Tuberculosis battle map, Wash. D.C. Miss Mildred Showalter of Washington, dressed as the Spirit of the Double-barred cross of the anti- tuberculosis movement throughout the world, points to various battlefronts throughout the world where the fight is being carried on against the "White Plague." On Nov. 26, ambassadors from various countries will give radio reports on progress of their countries and officially launch this [...] campaign in the United States, 11/25/35

Archbishop Francis J. Spellman of New York, on his recent tour of North African battlefronts, said mass for the men at the Fifty-seventh Fighter Group of the United States Army Ninth Air Force. This Air Force group is located "somewhere in Tunisia" and they are the boys who scored the biggest victory in the history of aviation, knocking almost 100 Axis transports and fighters out of the skies on one engagement. The archbishop held mass in a plane revetment at the Fifty-Seventh fighter base. The altar was set up and mass held on the spot. He said mass whenever and wherever there were boys who were interested in hearing one. Attendants at the mass were Major C.H. Logue, Catholic priest from Cleveland, Ohio, and Capptain J.E. McCarrity, Paulist priest from New York City and Air Force chaplain. They are seen in some of the pictures

New River, North Carolina. Marines in training. When these tanks appear on one of the world's battlefronts, they will carry the toughest crews the Axis has ever met: hardened Marines fresh from grueling war exercises at New River, North Carolina. Marine barracks, New River, North Carolina

Production. Launching of the SS Booker T. Washington. America needs ships to carry its guns and tanks and planes to the battlefronts of the world. A few minutes after the SS Booker T. Washington, first Liberty Ship named for a Negro, was launched at the California Shipbuilding Corporation's Wilmington yards, workmen were busy laying the keel for a new ship in America's growing Victory Fleet

Why greases must be saved. A soldier of the home front--and there's one in every American kitchen--saves all waste fats and greases so that they can be processed into ammunition for America's soldiers on the battlefronts. Pan and broiler drippings, deep fats, renderings from bacon rinds, these are some of the fats which should be put through a strainer to remove meat scraps and other solids, and poured into wide-mouthed cans such as coffee or fat cans

Production. Pratt and Whitney airplane engines. More power for our fighting airmen. A single-row Pratt and Whitney airplane motor is loaded on a freight car from the platform of a large Eastern plant. This engine, one of the finest products of American manufacturing skill, will soon be powering an American plane on one of our far-flung battlefronts. Pratt and Whitney Aircraft

Workers on Rickenbacker rescue boat. How mileage rationing can save lives on the battlefronts was pointed up dramatically by Captain Eddie Rickenbacker, who with six members of his crew were rescued after three weeks adrift on life rafts in the Pacific. "One tire that is not wasted on pleasure driving may save the lives of seven men as ours was saved," Rickenbacker said. One old rubber tire is sufficient to make a three-man raft of the type that saved the party in the Pacific

Fort Knox, Kentucky. Light tanks. The Axis is not going to like the American fighting men it will soon be meeting on the battlefronts of the world. Good example of a man becoming unpopular in Japanese circles is this hardened "tanker," in training with light equipment at Fort Knox, Kentucky

Women in industry. Tool production. Her mind's on her work and on her country. That small flag tells the story of this young woman's absorption in her job. Employed by a Midwest drill and tool plant, she's grinding points on drills which will be used in the production of America's ships and planes and guns. A soldier of the production front, she fights for the men on America's battlefronts. Republic Drill and Tool Company, Chicago, Illinois

Forest fire fighter. Para-fireman. This parachutist fights timber fires for the U.S. Forest Service. Much of his equipment is similar to that used at the battlefronts, since he encounters many of the same perils
