Transcription"By train and truck beets are rolling into the American Crystal Sugar company plant near Moorhead. Stacked in the huge piles when this picture was taken were 92, 000 tons of beets. J. B. Bingham, Red River Valley manager for the Moorhead and East Grand Forks plants said today that barring bad weather the beet harvest for the region serviced by the Moorhead plant would be completed by the end of the week. He said the plant was approaching the production expected of it. Working in new equipment and new labor for the $5, 500, 000 unit has been an expected problem. The run for the plant is to be completed early in January. In the right background is the United States Veterans hospital." - Caption with photograph, Fargo Forum & Daily Republican, Oct. 25, 1948, p. 1.
