Ever heard about Sweden's "Buy American" Policy?
Swedes like American products. In fact they like them so well that they buy nearly $50 worth a year for every man, woman and youngster. Per capita, few nations can match Sweden as a U.S. customer. * Buying American is typical of Sweden's commercial outlook. Each year Swedes buy increasing millions on millions of dollars worth of U.S. goods. Everything from machinery to fruits, from fuels to automobiles, from chemicals to tobacco.

The remarkable new Xerox 2400 will he available. A whole new breed of machine. A machine that knows no master. A machine that makes all the copies you want right from the original. A machine that makes copies too fast to be a copier. A machine that makes copies so simply it couldn't be a duplicator.

It may ride on air cushions rather than on rails, and be driven by jets or even rockets. A number of far-out ideas are competing for serious development. And industry is studying a big new market. By 1980, unless something drastic is done about it, traffic in the populous northeast corridor of the U.S. between Boston and Washington will have reached an imbalance and impasse of monstrous proportions.
