Any soldier back from a fighting front can tell you. He may not call it "morale" ... that's just a ten-buck word for the lift he felt when he saw familiar movie faces on a screen two thousand miles from home. His officers know that feeling. They know how valuable it is in winning battles. That's why Filmo sound Projectors travel with the troops wherever there's a job of fighting to be done. That's why Filmosound Library sends so many full length Holly wood features to the fighting fronts. *Opti-onicsisOPTics...electrONics . mechaniCS.

We also make special devices of many kinds that we don't talk about except to Army and Navy men. That's what we are doing ... to the very limits of our skill and energy . ; and other jobs must wait until the war is won!
