WWII was won through strategic use of beets--apparently. No sound on this video.

This film was obviously made with wartime slackers like the guy slowly, slowly loading cases of beets down the conveyor. Move stuff that slow during unrep* and half of it would be GONE before it could get to the other end.

Best line: So let us trim like we swim.

Over 17 minutes to explain how to trim beets? Now there is an inefficient use of time.

But they were using pork dollars so nothing was wasted.

Is that a Borscht belt holding up his pants? They could have at least added a soundtrack; I suggest "The Beet Goes On".
