The Cover

You've heard the NBC Chimes on radio; you've seen them on television. At this moment, you're reading a publication bearing that name. Now, you can wear them as well. Whether or not you can wear them as handsomely as does NBC guidette Lorna Underwood, who graces the cover of this issue of CIHIMES, is uncertain, but don't let that stop you. As an NBC employee, you are entitled to purchase products such as the NBC tee-shirt and pennant at a considerable discount.

Several issues ago CHIMES carried the story that NBC was embarking on a program of developing products that were outgrowths of NBC's broadcasting activities. The article featured pictures of the Radio City souvenir counter w here these items were being put on sale. Many NBC employees have since visited this little store to examine and buy some of the scores of products on sale there. Cover girl Lorna Underwood is also the sales girl behind the counter.

Now, for the benefit of employees in other NBC cities, and for NBC New Yorkers outside of Radio City, we have included in this issue of CHIMES a special added section (pages 11, 12, 13, 14) which showcases some of the merchandise, along with prices and instructions on how to order it.
