On January 1, 1948 Babson was the only com
mentator who dared to predict that there would
be no World War III in 1948; that "due to bung

2. A giant model lets you look inside the
Transistor ... it contains only two tiny wires or
"cat's whiskers" . . . touching a bit of the rare
metal germanium. It is much simpler than a
vacuum tube and does not require continuous
heating ... an important item in the 24-hour-a-day
service we render.
3. It will take some time for engineers to
perfect this invention. They're working ahead at
it and some day it may be used in central offices
and repeater stations up and down the Coast. It's
one example of how research helps improve serv

sistor and coaxial cable ... as well as
better day-to-day operating methods and
more efficient equipment. ..are developed
for Pacific Telephone and other Bell
System companies by a centralized lab
oratory and engineering group. This has
been working successfully for years. Com
bining efforts and sharing costs in this
way have proved to be much more eco
nomical and effective than if Pacific Tele
phone tried to make such developments
alone. developments which have steadily
improved service and have resulted in a saving of untold mil
lions of dollars to Pacific Coast telephone users.
