Watching the serenity of Christmas skies
we are conscious of deep silence. Yet the
stars are talking to us all the while-talking
in radio waves that are full of meaning to
scientists probing the depths of space.
The important discovery that some stars
produce radio waves was made by a
Bell Laboratories scientist while exploring
atmospheric disturbances which might in-
terfere with transoceanic telephone serv-

And so from the probings and skills of
Bell System scientists and engineers has
come another tool to help man understand
better the universe in which he lives.
These men are a proud team-members of
a still larger team engaged in research,
engineering and administration and work-
ing on telephone problems in all parts of
the country. We would like you to con-
sider joining them.
