The information in this advertisement has been reviewed for publication by Government authorities Miracle in the night It is night at a hidden airfield. A huge bomber rolls forth and roars down the dark runway. Hours later it returns and circles above the field. Not a light shows-yet its wheels unerringly find the runway its pilot never sees. How can men fly like this? How can they take off in darkness, return to an unmarked field, land safely without lights? The answer, of course, is instruments-precise,delicate dials and indicators that are the eyes and ears of our fighting forces. In the cockpit of every American bomber are more than 200 of these instruments. In ships, sub marines, tanks, in every type of artillery, instru ments perform a thousand essential tasks. America needs instruments by the millions. Westinghouse is proud to be contributing to this vital war effort. In Westinghouse plants, delicate, precise, hand workmanship has been put on a mass production basis-the job men used to say could never be done. Westinghouse is doing this job 24 hoursevery day. Again It's Westinghouse "know how" On sea and land and in the air, wherever American troops go into action, Westinghouse "know how" is on the job. What is this "know how"? It is the ability to get things done in the best possible way. It is a combina tion of pride of craftsmanship, untiring research, industrial ingenuity, and a world of experience. Today, Westinghouse "know how" has a single aim: to provide the weapons that will keep freedom alive. Westinghouse @ Every Westinghouse plant is producing equipment for the Army, Navy, or Merchant Marine.
