It’s “twins” for Piper … by Lycoming
This is the Piper Apache… the all-new executive plane that brings new economy to the twin-engine field while maintaining high standards of safety and dependability.
It is powered by two proven Lycoming 150-h.p. air-cooled engines designed especially for the Apache. These power plants provide an improved horsepower-weight ratio, new compactness… and are so powerful that the Apache can safely fly and land with a full load on one engine alone.
Is it just me, or do these kids all look a little demonic?

Thousands of boys and girls who once sat around at parties and watched others take the spotlight have discovered that the ability to play this fascinating instrument is all that is needed to win the admiration of friendsâ€”step out of the “wallflower” classâ€”and know the thrill of being a wonderful entertainer.
There is something humorous about a rotary video phone.

What percentage of Scientific American readers could possibly be in the market for an Inertial Upper Stage? Frankly I would be worried if someone was planning to launch a satellite, stumbled across this ad and proclaimed “Aha! Now I know what to do about apogee injection!”
USE THE BOEING IUS AND FORGET ABOUT
WORRIES 1 THROUGH 11
If you’ve been thinking about choosing the right upper stage to get your own spacecraft off the ground, you’re no doubt going through a little anxiety right now. What about reliability? How about performance? Who’s responsible? Costs? Accuracy? Things like that. We’d like to make a case for the Boeing Inertial Upper Stage â€” the only all-inclusive, worry-free, complete package available.
This shows how much hair styles have changed in the last 60 odd years. The “unruly hair” looks just like a modern haircut whereas the Glostora saturated model looks like he should be the evil rival in a Harry Potter movie.
UNRULY HAIR Stays Neatly Combed
Even Stubborn Hair Will Stay In Place
Costs But A Few Cents To Use â€” a bottle lasts for months
IS YOUR HAIR difficult to keep in place? Does it lack natural gloss and lustre? It is very easy to give it that rich, glossy and orderly appearance so essential to well-groomed boys.
Just rub a little Glostora through your hair once or twice a week â€” or after shampooing, and your hair will then stay, each day, just as you comb it.
Glostora gives hair that natural, rich, well-groomed effect, instead of leaving it stiff and artificial looking as waxy pastes and creams do.
Try it! A large bottle of Glostora costs but a trifle at any drug store.

We have split the atom and made a bomb, but where we go from here depends largely on the strange structure in the photo and others like it. It is a nuclear research type reactor. Right now scientists have literally thousands of ideas for putting the atom to work in medicine, biology, chemistry, metallurgy. But they need this reactor to hatch the eggsâ€”are handcuffed without it.

Same wires – many more voices
Connecting new multi-voice system to open-wire lines, near Albany, Georgia. With new system, 150,000 miles of short open-wire telephone lines can be made to carry up to 16 simultaneous messages economically.
Much of your Long Distance telephone system works through cable but open-wire lines are still the most economical in many places. Thousands of these circuits are so short that little would be saved by using elaborate carrier telephone systems which are better suited for long-haul routes. But a new carrier system . . . the Type O designed especially for short hauls … is changing the picture. It is economical on lines as short as 15 miles. With Type O thousands of lines will carry as many as 16 conversations apiece.
Type O is a happy combination of many elements, some new, some used in new ways. As a result, terminal equipment takes up one-eighth as much space as before. Little service work is required on location; entire apparatus units can be removed and replaced as easily as vacuum tubes.
Moreover, the new carrier system saves copper by multiplying the usefulness of existing lines. For telephone users it means more service . . . while the cost stays low.
