THE CHALLENGE OP THE YEAR - - - as viewed by John W. Simpson, Vice-President Westinghouse Electric Corporation in a speech before State 4-H Club Electric awards winners in Chicago. A Visit with Don Cormaney, AclQey, Iowa 'When you concentrate hogs, you're bound to build up a lot of bugs." "When you build up bugs, you've got yourself a scours problem." "And when you've got scours, brother, you've got trouble." "TNT ^ains us a piy a litter. That's a *j bill in anybody's money." "We had scours so bad, I was running around with a syringe, treating eleven, twelve hundred pigs four or five times each. And they still looked rough. "Who wants to go to all that work ... and have scrubby pigs to boot? JThunder! I feed hogs to make money . . . not because I think it's fun out there] "My feed man sold me on trying TNT. The difference is like night and day. Now I walk into that hog house, and the pigs jump up and know I'm around. They don't just lay there half sickly. "I'm getting about five pounds more pig at eight weeks, and marketing at five months . . . probably two weeks sooner than before TNT." TNT. It works for Don Cormaney. It'll work for you. TRIPLE-ACTING NEO-TERRAMYCIN (neomycin-oxytetracycliiw) The year 1932 — just 34 years ago — saw a world quite different from the one in which we now live. No television no jets streaming through the skies no astronauts - - - no atomic bombs or nuclear powered ships — and we could go on and on. Mr. Simpson, with an eye to the developments in progress in the huge electrical industries field, projects us into a world just 34 years hence to the year 2000. We think you will enjoy reading about this world most'of us will live to see, and perhaps even help to shape. In the year 2000, we have about 309,000,000 people in this country - - - 120,000,000 more than they had back in 1965. A much larger proportion of them are living in the cities. Transportation of everything is a much larger task — transportation of everything from people and power, to produce and products. One way we have met our transportation problem is with air-supported trains. They are quite long and, traveling as they do on a cushion of air, have very little vibration at speeds up to 250 miles an hour. We're also working hard on a magnetic car that will ride on a magnetic highway and we expect to have it in production within a decade — by the year 2010. The concept is simple. The car and the roadway are each magnetized to the same polarity. Naturally they oppose each other . . . and so the car scoots down the highway with almost no friction and at very high speeds. Now in the year 2000 most of our families have a third automobile for town use — one that runs on electric power instead of that greasy kid stuff. It goes about 100 miles on a full battery charge and at speeds of about 50 miles an hour. It sits all night in the garage getting its battery-recharged. We no longer form metal products by whittling away at them with a sharp edge. Nowadays we shape our metal with laser beams and electron beams. These cut with edges of energy with an ease, speed, and precision never equal- led in earlier days. We can weld half- an-inch-thick metal in air with electron beams. Agricultural Division, Chas. Pfizer & Co.. Inc., New York, N.V. 10O17 In our schools, the teacher is no longer bothered with such non-productive work as grading papers, keeping records and searching out good source materials. All this is performed for her by computers, releasing her to devote more
