A new building of the Bell Telephone Laboratories Reason for Confidence MORE than ninety per cent of American scientists are engaged in beating the Germans and Japanese. More than ninety per cent of Amer ican scientific laboratory facilities are devoted to the same task. American scientists are working at this job six or seven days a week, long hours, with few interruptions. They are getting somewhere, too. Every now and then the Germans and the Japanese have an unpleasant surprise. They find that American science has caught up with them and passed them. It is reassuring to us and discourag ing to our enemies, for American scien tific facilities are the greatest in the world. And they are functioning. Little by little, some of the things that have been developed become pub lic, but most of them you won't hear about until after the war. But now, without the details, you can have faith, that American research industrial and academic combined - is rapidly giving our fighting forces an advantage. Along with other American industry, the Bell Telephone System has its own Bell Laboratories - the largest in the world--working overtime for victory. BELL TELEPHONE SYSTEM Your continued help in making only vitcl calls to war-busy centers is a real contributionto the drive for victory.
