The attractive Lt. Admoni
was raised in a Chicago family
of ardent Zionists. She grad-

Chicago in 1943 and worked as

What makes it worth having?
PBY ITSELF, a Bell telephone is useless. What
makes it so valuable to you is that it brings
the world within easy speaking distance when co-
nected to the Bell System network.
This network has billions of parts. All had to be
designed and manufactured to work together for
good telephone service.
To assure a dependable source of good equip-
ment that will work together with all other parts of
the nation-wide telephone network,Western Electric
long ago was made the manufacturing unit of the
Bell System.
