Making science feel at home in California On the Palos Verdes peninsula, in Southern California, Gen Tel is contributing to the development of "the perfect place to think." Conceived to serve the growth of science on the West Coast, Palos Verdes Research Park will be one of the nation's first large-scale developments planned and zoned exclusively for research and development. This new community of homes, recreational and research facilities will occupy rolling slopes that face the Pacific. To provide this campus-like science center with the most modern communica tions, Gen Tel is now at work installing a completely integrated telephone system. Palos Verdes is but one example of how Gen Tel's Industrial Development Department helps to foster growth in Southern California by aiding large and small companies to locate in an ideal research climate. It is another example of how Gen Tel works as a "partner in progress" through out the 31 states it serves. General Telephone & Electronics Corporation, 730 Third Avenue, New York 17.
