NOW                signalmen can wear
helmets with this new headset!
         QIGNALMEN formerly saw action without helmets because old-
         K) style headsets were too bulky. Now miniature receivers with ear-
         plugs are being used for both radio and telephone work.
           Fitting snugly under the helmets they give better reception by
         keeping out battle noise ... they are cooler, more comfortable.
           Signal Corps engineers working with Western Electric and Bell
         Telephone Laboratories developed this new all-purpose
         military headset.
           Here is another instance of Bell System service to our
         nation at war.
                     War calls keep Long Distance lines busy
          SA       .... That's why your call may be delayed.
