Many people didn't know what had

What had once been the renter

burning twisting rubble.
This had been the first of two
colossal atomic explosions aimed
to cripple two of Japan's most
important cities of World War II,
Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The
Atomic Age had begun.
U.S. Triumph
With the bombardment of these
key targets the United States
scored three great triumphs-the
impending climax of the war had
been hastened. America became
the dominant world power due to
exclusive ownership of the atomic
bomb and its production secrets.
The United States opened the door
to a new era of technological ad-
vance for the human race.
With the explosion of that first
bomb over Hiroshima the theory
of atomic energy was proven to

America began to realize that
if some aggressive nation could
unravel the A-bomb secrets, the
United States would be exposed to
the same fate of Hiroshima and
Nagasaki, only on a larger scale.
These fears weren't without
sound basis. The Soviet threat
existed as real then as now.
At the time of the first atom
explosion, most nations had the
basic prerequisites for producing
an A-bomb. They had enough
scientific and technical data, suffi-
cient, numbers of scientists and
engineers, necessary raw materials,
the means for manufacturing the
bomb and adequate finances to
produce them.

Atomic Age Conduct
They wondered how democratic
America would conduct itself as
dominant world power-would they
use atomic energy to benefit man
or would they succumb to a power-
lust as a result of their ownership
of the devastating atomic weapon?
It was obvious in the eyes of
many that catastrophic beginnings
of the atom era were just hints

...where you can rise to the top

Right now you're in the process of making one of the
most important decisions of your life.
Your decision is important to us, too, because we aie
interested in engineers and scientists who want to get
ahead. We're coming to the campus to give you the facts
you need to judge whether Boeing can help you reach the
goal you have in mind.
The fact that Boeing is an "engineers' company" is
important to your success. At Boeing, you'd work with,
and for, engineers-men who talk your language, under-

vancement. The company's steady, rapid growth assures
plenty of opportunities to move ahead. At Boeing, engi-
neers hold positions right to the top.
Another advantage: Boeing assignments are interesting.
You'll work on such famous projects as the 707, America's
first jet transport; the intercontinental B-52, the nation's
principal long-range jet bomber; the supersonic BOMARC
guided missile, and top-secret programs that probe beyond
the frontiers of the known. At Boeing, you'll be in a
young, expanding industry, one with its major growth
