SPEED OF MACHINE AND MAN CAUGHT BY CAMERA
Thrills that electrified spectators at an automobile race and soccer game are reproduced by lucky “snaps” of quick-action cameras. The player in one picture has just made a goal by bunting the ball through the posts with his head, a feat seldom witnessed, but the photographer caught the play.

Enlarger for Your Candid Camera
By Wayne Daniel Clegg
How many times have you looked into the window of a photo store, admired the expensive miniature enlargers and longed to be the proud possessor of one?

Printing Photos on Any Material
KENNETH MURRAY TELLS HOW TO SENSITIZE CLOTH, CHINA, GLASS, AND METAL
IN A NEW YORK store window a demonstrator recently attracted crowds by making photographic prints before their eyes on a variety of materials. He daubed a little solution on the surface where the picture was to be placed and, as soon as it had dried, placed a negative over it, clamped it in position with a piece of glass and a rubber band or two, and exposed the picture to the light of a photoflood bulb for a short time.
Photographic Record of Telephone Meters

Turn Snapshots Into ‘HUMANETTES’
Sensational invention. Almost human in appearance. A life-like cut out figure. Any snapshot, photograph or picture can be “immortalized” by this strange new process. Surface covered with moisture-proof transparent PORCELITE. Will not peel, tear, crack, or soil. Looks like porcelain bas-relief.

It looks they used almost the exact same photos. They seem close enough that I’m wondering if the Army ad just painted over the guy’s hand in the originals used in the MI article.
1/25,000 of a second of surgery
Here it is… the clinical recording camera. Developed by the Army Signal Corps for the surgeons of the Medical Department, it can “stop” an intricate operation with a silent, built-in flash lasting 1/25,000 of a second!
