Yet the audience was seated five miles away from the studio in which the performance was being staged, yet the vivid feeling remained that those passing before the camera miles away were in the receiving room in flesh and blood. That was the impression carried away by one hundred and fifty edi- tors of leading magazines and news- papers recently when the first large- scale demonstration of Philco High Fidelity television with 441 line pictures was staged in Philadelphia by Philco Radio and Television Cor- poration.

SUPERVISORS WfSH TOLL BRIDGES Legislation to permit erection of two toll bridges, connecting Shelter Island with the Suffolk mainland, by private capital and without added expense to taxpayers, is being urg- ed by the Suffolk County Board of Supervisoi'S. The proposed spans would con- nect Greenport with the north side of Shelter Island and the south shore of the island with the mainland at North Haven, near Spring Har- bor. The total estimated cost of the two is put at ?2,900,000. County Attoi-ney Edgar F. Hazel- ton has drafted a tentative measure in connection with the proposal. It calls for creation of a bridge comis- sion which would be empowered to otiate with private capital for the erection and operation of the two bridges, with the private interests collecting tolls on the bridges. Two years ago the project was proposed to the WPA but no action ever was taken. The bridges have been under con- sideration for some years. Once the supervisors voted a $5,000,000 bond issue to build them and to construct an approaching network of high- ways, but the resolution later was vetoed. The spans would replace the present ferry service operating be- tween Greenport and the island and the island and Sag Harbor. Supervisor Frederic J. Wood and Judge John Clinton Robbins confer- red with Welfare Commissioner Irv- ing Williams to discuss the case of Victor Brown, an alien relief-work- er, and to arrange for a report to the Town Board of Babylon of re- lief money spent in the Town. Victor Brown is a Canadian sub- ject. He entered this country after the World War. He has ibeen trying to secure citizenship papers for some time. Due to a technicality he has not yet become a citizen. Just what the technicality is, has not been lear- ned. Members of the Town Board feel that Brown, as an alien, is not en- titled to a relief job. They wish to have him discharged for that reason Commissioner Williams has argued in favor of Brown, as Brown intends to become a citizen shortly. Thei-e has been a difference of opinion in Brown's case between Commissioner Williams and the Town Board for many months. At the conference it was decided that unless Brown becomes a citizen soon, he will be discharged. The Babylon Town Board in the past, has asked for monthly reports on relief money spent in the town. The Board, as yet, has received no report. At the conference it was decided that a semi-annual report will be made to the Board. This will enable the Board to iknow if relief money is being used in such a manner as to eventually mean a saving 'to ttha Town.
