You CAN BE SURE..IF rIT Westinghouse ?_ WAY DOWN An awful lot of people seem to want to get to Brooklyn. Getting there is lots easier, lots more comfortable, now that the new Battery- to-Brooklyn Tunnel under the East River has been completed. Better, specifically, because this tunnel has the very last word in engineered ven tilation .. the smells-good, tastes-good, feels-good kind. If this sounds slightly partial to our Stur tevant Division, who did the job, we hasten to record the revealing fact that Sturtevant HERE THE AIR'S WONDERFUL also furnished the equipment to ventilate the Holland, Lincoln and Queens-Midtown Tunnels. One good tunnel deserves another! For those interested in figures, 666,000,000 cubic feet of fresh air is pumped into this tunnel every hour. For those interested in meanings, this job is evidence of the kind of confidence engineers have learned to place in all Westinghouse products. In elevators, for instance, or in as widely dif ferent but equally critical application as the lighting of airports . . . or electric blankets! SWESTINGHOUSE ELECTRIC CORPORATION * * PITTSBURGH * PA.
