Mr. Potter's private war IT IS IMPORTANT that we plan now to bring you fine Stromberg Carlson radios when peace comes ... Important because these plans will mean good jobs for our men in the armed forces ... and good jobs for the men and women whose work has won for Stromberg-Carlson the Army-Navy "E." MR. POTTER closed his eyes and listened to the music.... He was on the bridge of a destroyer in the North Atlantic. ... Captain Potter gets the convoys through. Then he was Pilot Potter... riding the skies over Europe. The music softened ... and Lieutenant Potter of the U. S. Marines was lying wounded in the jungle... pale and drawn. Then his wife called, "Henry!" she said, "Put the cat out and come to bed." To Mr. Potter, music is relaxation from war work.... To the girl whose husband has gone to war, music is a companion. Music is many things to many people . . . but it is at its best when heard with all the subtleties that give it meaning. Tomorrow, all the richness, all the greatness of fine music, will come to you through the postwar Stromberg-Carlson. This is a promise worth remembering ... for it is backed by fifty years of experience . . . by the skill that made Stromberg-Carlson the leader in FM ... and by many new wartime developments! Keep the postwar Stromberg-Carlson in mind.... Your War Bonds will buy nothing finer! IN RADIOS, TELEPHONES, SOUND EQUIPMENT... THERE IS NOTHING FINER THAN A STROMBERG-CARLSON A HALF-CENTURY OF FINE CRAFTSMANSHIP O 1944, STROMBEaRO-CARLION COMPANY,ROCHESTER.N. Y.
