A Second Line of Defense

The full force of the Chicago National Guard is in the field.

The plan is to stop the locusts before they can get to Chicago.

The troops are deployed in large numbers.

Heavy self-propelled artillery has been brought it.

The men are taking up positions along the dry stream bed.

An experimental short range rocket has been brought along.

Television cameras are here to document the battle and some of our top scientists are here to monitor the attack and assist with the missile.

They don't have much time, the locusts are near!
