How soon will you be able to see over the phone? (Aug, 1956)
There is something humorous about a rotary video phone.
CREATING A NEW WORLD WITH ELECTRONICS
How soon will you be able to see over the phone?
It may be sooner than you think. For the remarkable new Hughes tonotronâ€”now used for high-fidelity transmission of maps and other navigational pictures to ships and aircraftâ€”will make possible “face-to-face” telephone calls to and from your office or home.
The tonotron is only one example of Hughes Products leadership in research and development of electron tubes and related advances in electronics, such as transistors and diodes. It is with products like these that science will bring about the dynamic electronics eraâ€”in which you will have on-the-wall television, electronic control of factory production, and countless other marvels.
As one of the country’s largest electronics research and manufacturing firms, Hughes Products backs its semiconductors, cathode ray tubes, and industrial systems and controls with a long record of technical accomplishments. These include the “thinking” falcon air-to-air missile, and the self-directing Hughes Automatic Armament Control which is standard equipment on all Air Force interceptors.
Undoubtedly there is a time- and money-saving application of Hughes electronic products to your own business. A Hughes Products sales engineer will welcome the opportunity to work with your staff. Please write: Hughes Products, Los Angeles 45, California.

Ad: Boeing Inertial Upper Stage (Sep, 1979)
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.
UNRULY HAIR Stays Neatly Combed (May, 1938)
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.
UNIVAC MAGNETIC TAPE (Jun, 1953)
Wow, this baby can hold over 120 bytes per inch!
UNIVAC MAGNETIC TAPE
saves 90% In storage and handling over punched cards
Remington Rand Univac Electronic Computers Now Make Available…
Reels of magnetic tape are utilized with remington rand electronic computer systems solving intricate computations for business, for industry, for science, for government. They operate at speeds that put facts at management’s fingertips with breathtaking rapidity. They give management today data which it formerly had to wait months to obtain.
Odd Co-Branding (Grinders and Gum) (Jul, 1948)
We’ve all seen co-branding before, Dell and Intel, Burger King and Pepsi, Republicans and Fundamentalist Christians, etc. But Grinders and Wrigley’s Gum? Obvious isn’t it? I know that when I think grinders, I think gum.

Versatile New Grinder Saves Time â€” Improves Grinding Efficiency
A new grinder, the Corlett-Turner G-3, permits changing of grinding wheels in a matter of seconds and assures a true running wheel at all times. Each wheel is individually mounted on a ground, tapered arbor.
Easy wheel changing is accomplished by a slight wrist motion on the end bells of the grinder head. A twist to the left releases the wheel arbor; the reverse action instantly secures it in place. It’s all done in a matter of seconds. No costly time is lost in repeated wheel dressing.
In addition to its primary function, the G-3 grinder has innumerable uses for burring, buffing, polishing, and production applications requiring a high speed spindle. Powered by a 1/3 horsepower motor, a three-step pulley arrangement provides speeds of 5600, 8000 and 12,000 r.p.m.
Efficiency in precision work is also increased when tension is relieved by the act of chewing. And chewing Wrigley’s Spearmint is a pleasant, easy way to help relieve workers’ nervous tension. For these reasons Wrigley’s Spearmint Chewing Gum is being made available more and more by plant owners everywhere.
