Some of the text in this Vintage Ad:
Troops off the Queen Mary getting their first taste of home
“Bro-ther, it must rain milk back here!”
It’s midnight, and the huge troopship has just
eased into harbor. Beside the gang-plank, a
swing band plays. Spotlights pick out banners;
crowds pack the pier railings. And right up
front with the “welcome committee” are truckloads
Hardly does a soldier thump his barracks
bag down on the dock before he dives for an
ice-cold carton of milk. When a whole division
lands at once, it takes about 35,000 half-pint
containers to satisfy their thirst!
These men have a hefty craving for fresh
milk to ``catch up with." That's why it flows
so freely at home-coming receptions, at processing
centers, and at hospitals, too, where one
recreation worker claims it outranks blondes
Out of service, it's more than likely this
army-fostered appetite for milk, ice cream and
other dairy products will carry into civilian life.
A good point to remember, for the cook who
takes over from Uncle Sam.
And while you fill your ex-fighter's order for
these favorite foods, National Dairy continues
its effort to safeguard their purity and improve
their quality. Our laboratories-incubator of
many important wartime developments-con-
tinue to find new ways in which milk-“nature’s
most nearly perfect food”-can contribute to
the nation’s health.
