Latest Wall Street reports can be made available in seconds with this device which a New York broker installed in his Frankfurt subsidiary, Oct. 26, 1965. The device is linked directly with a New York computer. Client pushes buttons; a two letter combination stands for each important company Wall street deals with. Scale shows figures asked for. For example high and low course, last dividend, last earnings. (AP Photo)
