ATLANTA, Ga.. (AP) An in
tricate apparatus which transmits
sound over a beam of light has
bee demonstrated here. The
process is "narrow-casting."
The equipment, developed by
John Bellamy Taylor, consulting
engineer of the General Electric
company, is a photophon3, built on
old principles, but utilizing the
perfected photoelectric cell, elec
tric pickup and newly developer
amplifiers and sound Reproducers.
Electrical energy is sent over
the light beam to transposing and
reproducing elements, mounted on
a tripod some dlstanca away.
Energy is led to a mirror, one
.thousandth of a square inch In
urea, suspended, in a marn'etic
field by wires. The mirror, quiv-
' ering la tune with the, electric
current, focuses the light by a
lens into a narrow beam, which.
Pulsating at the frequency determ
ined by music on a phonograph
record, i? projected through tpaee
to the light collecting mirror or
lens of the receiver.
The mirror, or lens, cond?nses
the light on the photoelectric cell,
which responds to every variation
In light intensity, and translates
the light into elecric energy. This.
. after ampllcafication,' passes to a
loud speaker, where the final
. sound transformation occurs.
The process differs from radio
broadcosting in degree only. In
the case of light, frequencies of
several hundred triflion per second
Rive wavelengths of the order of
a fifty-thousandth of an inch,
while broadcast waves ar,e from
600 to 1,500 feet in length. The
light waves will pass only in a
straight line and through only
soch solids as are transparent.
whll3 broadcast waves will bend
around obstructions and pass
Mr. Taylor Is able to control the
round produced at will by passing
his hand or any non-transparent
Kolid n the path of the light
beam. The lighting of a match
produces a sound not unlike the
rumble of thunder, while the vary
ing light from a small dynamo
driven flashlight sounds like 8

NEW YORK. (AP) Eelief
that radio receiver manufacturers
must heed the advent of television,
'since it necessitates changes in
conventioal audio amplifier de
sign. " has been expressed by E.
E. Hiler, radio engineer.
He said that t lie commercial
success of tel?vlsion was conting
ent upon satisfactory results with
receivers to which was added the
image reproducing equipment.
Cood reproduction of an image,
however, he added, was depend
ent upon the amplifying charac
teristics of the receiver.
"Detail or shading in a televi
sion image," he continued, "is
governed by th? amount of fre
quency distortion present in the
-ystem. Such distortion is of in
finitely greater importance when
receiving television signals than
with voice, since it means loss af
detail and shading.
"One television experimenter
has ben convinced that the audio
implifier used in television must
possess a flat operating character
istic, since the transmitters em
ploy audio amplifiers of this na
ture. As such, receiver manufac
turers must design their audio
equipment to conform with these

Seeking Air Tax
P.UDAPEST (AP) Portable
! radio sets with no visible aerials
'are giving postoffice inspectors a
j To check up on persons who
lliave not paid the annual radio
jtax, inspe?tors compare the posi
tions of aerials with the list of
licenses. This has proven most
effective, except in the cases of
evaders, who have portable sets
with small aerials.
Because of the amount of sus
pected evasion, authorities are
considering a plan by which re
tailers selling portable sets would
supply the postoffice with the
names and addresses of purchasers.
WASHINGTON, (AP) While
regional stations are not atiected
by the order of the federal radio
commission restricting the simul
taneous broadcasting of Identical
chain programs, time division has
resulted in the curtailment of the
network service of some stations.
The extent to which limitation
of time on ho air has restricted
individual stations is yet to be de
termined. It will depend on the
number of hours of operation and
the attitude of the network sys
ems towards broadcasters whose
time is curtailed. Many broadcast
ers, however, who hare been as
signed, to regional channels with
out time division, regard their sit
uation as preferable to some of
the clear channel stations hit by
the chain restriction or the time
