1941-42

Protective billows of smoke are shown rushing from the 10-lipped mouth of the U.S. Army's new M-1 smoke generator.

The device, the principle of which was worked out by General Electric scientists, is capable of producing 50 to 100 times as much smoke with less cost and less human effort than any previous smoke apparatus.

Brig. Gen. Alden H. Waitt of the Chemical Warfare Service terms it "one of the major triumphs of American science in helping to fight the nation's war."
