Waste of Slaves (Nov, 1947)

KHUFU might have saved a LIFETIME
KING KHUFU had only slave-power with which to build the greatest of the pyramids. With engine-power, he might have saved a lifetime and the lives of
Today, mightier and much more useful structures spring from dream to drawing board to reality in relatively short spans of time. Modern construction equip-ment powered by internal-combustion engines makes this possible. For today, the machine is the slave of man. Great dams, soaring bridges, towering buildings and broad highways are ours without backbreaking toil and wasted flesh and blood.
PARTNERS IN THE PROGRESS OF POWER
American Bosch works closely with and for the internal-combustion-engine industry in three vital ways:
ENGINEERING. 1,200,000 man-hours of it have been poured into Diesel Fuel Injection aloneâ€”other millions into Ignition.
PRODUCTION. Premium performance has been a consistent goal in the production of hundreds of thousands of Diesel injection systems and millions of electrical units.
MAINTENANCE. The world over, American Bosch authorized service stations keep the equipment operating efficiently.
