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.
I, for one, sleep soundly at night knowing that should we be attacked with chemical weapons, our brave typists will still be able to do their duty to their country.

Heavily Armored Police Car Is Immune To Bandit Bullets
IT WOULD take the most daring bandit in the world to put a bullet through the new armored car built by an American manufacturer for police work in a foreign countryâ€” for in doing so, he would have to let the auto run over him and shoot up through the floorboards. In other words, the automobile is entirely bullet-proof.
The whole body is covered with a sheet of bullet-proof steel; the windows are of inch-thick, shatter-proof glass with rubber lined gun ports on the front, sides and rear.

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.
The Age of Color
THE world is spending millions for color today and, as a result, is rapidly changing from a dull, drab sphere into a gay and cheerful place garbed in all the hues of the rainbow.
America alone is using about $50,000,000 worth of dyes a year. These dye-stuffs sell, or help to sell, six or seven billion dollars’ worth of merchandise annually because, to a great extent, we buy what pleases the eye.
