Helping the tire maker: Pictured here is a laboratory model of the new Westinghouse developed "mass spectrometer," an adaptation of which analyzes gases with incredible swiftness and accuracy. Right now, one of the most important of its many uses is speeding up tremendously a step in the making of synthetic rubber. Westinghouse research accepts every wartime challenge... Under the spur of war, Westinghouse research is delving into numberless mysteries, not only in the vast field of electricity and electronics, but also in chemistry, physics, metallurgy, plastics. And as a result, out of the great Westinghouse laboratories has come a steady stream of new war products, and new and better ways of making old ones. Westinghouse research develops new talent for America... To Westinghouse, each year, come several hundred bud ding scientists and engineers-to work, to learn, to blaze new trails in electrical research. And each year, through more than 100 Westinghouse scholarships, young men enter America's engineering colleges to develop the native skill and talent that have made America great and will make it greater. Westinghouse research promises new wonders for peace ... You have heard much talk of the marvels science will offer you after the War. Well, there will be marvels-plenty of them-and West inghouse research is working to contribute its full share. But we will never lose sight of what we consider our first duty: seeing that, beyond all question, each Westinghouse product, old -or new, is the very finest of its kind.
