National Geographic : 1961 Dec
3. A workman inserts a heavy cardboard hoop, applies glue, and joins Northern and Southern Hemispheres. He then slips the globe into the metal clamp behind his head, and an overhead conveyer whisks it away. 4. Globes swing past a painter's spray gun. As they rotate, he applies a lacquer that imparts gloss and protects the map surface from han dling damage. 5. Globes come to rest at an inspection center. Packers apply the polar caps and make rigor ous final examinations. Globes then acquire their Geometers, or "thinking caps," transparent plastic domes with scales that measure distance, direc tion, and area. Members may order National Geographic Globes for their own use, or as Christmas gifts, complete with Geometer, Great Circle Ring, stand, and index.
