NEW DEPARTURES OF TOMORROW
Automatic Lumberjack – 1958
Even Paul Bunyan couldn’t match the pace of this “automatic lumberjack” of the future. It fells, sections and loads treesâ€”all at the push of a button!
The company that launches this wonder will probably look to New Departure for ball bearings. For New Departures have proved their ability to hold moving parts in perfect alignment, cut wear and friction, and work long hours without letupâ€”or upkeep. Above all, New Departure has lived up to its name â€” being first with ball bearing advancements.
So, when improving or designing a product, count on New Departure for the finest ball bearings.

The New IBM Electronic Data Processing Machines
For Science… Industry… Defense
Combining the great storage capacities and speeds of cathode ray tubes, magnetic drums, and magnetic tapes with the tremendous computing speeds of electronic tubes, IBM engineers and scientists have produced in these machines the most flexible and most productive calculating unit ever marketed.
Here is a computer that can add and subtract 16,666 times a second . . . that can multiply and divide 2,192 times a second . . . and can recall factors from storage, or “memory,” in as little as 12 millionths of a second.
Is Your TV Set Ready for the new UHF Channels ?

How your telephone call asks directions… and gets quick answers
When the Bell System’s latest dial equipment receives orders to connect your telephone with another in a distant city, it must find-quickly and automaticallyâ€”the best route.
Route information is supplied in codeâ€”as holes punched on steel cards. When a call comes in, the dial system selects the appropriate card, then reads it by means of light beams and photo-transistors. Should the preferred route be in use the system looks up an alternate route.

Putting color to work in computers.
Computers that present a wealth of confusing information serve only to slow the information process. At ISC. we use color graphics as a highly-effective communications medium. Why color? Research has shown that color conveys information more quickly and effectively than any other visual method. Thus, when compared to black and white a color CRT display results in faster, more accurate user response. And that means faster decisions from the ultimate processor, the human brain.
heroes must not lisp!
“My thweet” lisped from the screen would mar the star’s romantic appeal. But that is something you don’t hear in the theatres which have Western Electric talking picture equipment.
To reproduce the letter ‘S’ was but one of many difficulties in the way of giving you talking pictures at their best. Western Electric was able to solve these problems by reason of its 50 years’ experience in making Bell telephones and other voice transmission apparatus.
All over this country, and indeed the world, a discriminating public flocks to Western Electric equipped theatres â€” one more proof of this company’s leadership in sound.

The “NOSE-TEST” will tell you the plain truth about ANTI-FREEZE
From the standpoint of evaporation there are two kinds of anti-freezeâ€”the kind that boils away and the kind that does not boil away. There is no middle ground. Some boil-away antifreezes, however, have been “treated” to “decrease evaporation,” and many car owners may get the impression that such products are all-Winter, one-shot, non-evaporating anti-freeze. Such an impression would be wrong. For such anti-freezes boil off rapidly when the engine is operating at high speed. An easy way to make sure that you get an all-Winter, one-shot product is by the lack of odor. Eveready Prestone is absolutely odorlessâ€”all boil-away anti-freezes, on the other hand, have a noticeable odor.

putting IDEAS to work â€” research at IBM
â€¢Random Access Memory Accounting: RAMACÂ®, magnetic-disk memory storage, gives fast access to 5,000,000 characters. IBM Bulletin No. 400.

Random Access Memory Accounting
RAMAC, IBM’s newest data processing system, needed a unique memory storage system. Ordinary methods of memory storageâ€”magnetic tape, drums, ferrite coresâ€”couldn’t store enough “bits” of information. It took a research team of ours,withTriggNoyes and Wes Dickinson as key men at IBM’s San Jose Research Labs, to find the answer. The heart of this new idea: magnetic disks, played and replayed like the records in coin-operated music machines!
