Today he smiled for the first time.. OUR "E" FLAG means many things to the men and women ofStromberg-Carlson. It means ... keep turning out the equipment for our fighting men. It means... keep buying War Bonds till it hurts. It means... give blood to the Red Cross. It means... keep praying and working for Victory to bring our boys home! HIS WOUND HAD HEALED . .. But when he lit a cigarette, his hand shook . .. and any sudden noise would make him start and tremble . . . and then he'd break out in a cold sweat. For the sounds of war beat through his head ... and he couldn't forget. Then they tried music . . . soft music all day long . . . and the melodies reached into his tortured mind, soothing, peaceful, familiar. Today he smiled for the first time ... Yes, there's a power in music .. . a power to heal, a power to relax, a power to give men fresh courage and hope. Right now our only job-and our great obligation to our fighting men-is to produce the radios and communications equipment for war. But when Victory is finally won we will again bring you all the radio pleasure of FM-all the richness of music and natural reproduction of your favorite program through a Stromberg-Carlson.
