Elgin Service in A.D. 1950 A FEW years ago the Elgin Watchmakers College was just an ideal in a human mind. Today it is a true working col lege-with full equipment, a faculty recruited from the cream of profes sional watchmaking talent, a stu dent body of selected and earnest young men. Any watch-owner can imagine what it will mean when these Elgin graduates are located in different cit ies and towns throughout this land. Through these men you and your children, and their children, will re- ceive a service as far ahead of its day as Elgin achievements are now. The Elgin Watchmakers College was founded and is endowed by the Elgin Company. It is just one more step in making the Elgin institution a service to the nation inperpetuity. * * * Young men interested in taking up the study of the finer mechanics of watchmaking are invited to send for the booklet, "Watchmaking as aVoca tion," mailed free on request.
