Though the new cable actually con- tains 4,242 separately Insulated 26- gauge copper wires, it la no larger around than Its biggest predecessor, which holds 3,636 wires of the same size.

New York State has an Interesting place In cable history. As early as 1879, tour years before the opening of the Brooklyn Bridge tor roadway traffic, small telephone cables were strung across that structure. But the early cables were unsatisfactory In service and too costly for extensive use. En- gineers worked persistently to develop an efficient type, but even In the late 'eighties there were points In New York City where poles 90 feet high and carrying as many as 60 cross arms wer* required to carry the open lines.

Lower right: First Installation of new cable, underground In Jer- sey City. Top: Maze of wires overhead In New York City before circuits were placed underground In early cables. by an improved technique of insula- tion invented by the Western Electric Company, manufacturing organization of tbe Bell System. The covered wire produced by the new method has a diameter of only 31/1000 of an inch, compared with the former 34/1000. The decrease of 3/1000 of an inch In each case, repeated 3,636 times, provides space for the addition- al strands within the same size of lead sheath. This largest telephone cable Is de- signed tor use at points in the nation- wide system where there Is concen- trated telephone development For ex- ample. under a single street crossing in New York City—at Seventh Avenue and 36th Street—there are 282 cables containing 560,000 wires. This illus- trates the fact, telephone engineers point out. that without cables enclos- ing thousands of tightly packed wires large centers of population would prob- ably have to do with far fewer tele- phones. The present method of insulating wires tor telephone cable is itself a revolntionary development of the past decade, according to the engineers. Previously the wires bad been Insu- lated by wrapping paper spirally around them. Now a paper coating is literally manufactured on them as they pass through a bath of pulp. Cable improvement has been going on for nearly sixty years. During this Encased lu the cable wound upon this giant spool at a Western Electric Co. plant are hundreds of tiny wire threads over which human voices will soon be traveling. Before this reel is sealed and shipped for use In the Bell System, it is being, tested to see If all the clrculti will provide proper transmission ot telephone messages. The young woman inspector connects one pair ot con- ductors at a time to testing equipment, enabling another Inspector located a short distance away to make the neces- sary electrical measurements.

PUPIL OF 'PHONE INVENTOR, A SON OF TS BACKER DIES ery ot a method ot Insulating wires with paper and enclosing them in lead sheathing, tor use either above or below ground. Though greatly Improved since then, the modern telephone cable utilizes principles evolved at that time. Engineers point out that cable develop- ment has gone hand-in-hand with other major improvements in the tele- phone system, each dependenfupon the other tor Its usefulness in the sor- rice. Today, 99 per cent of all the 14,440,000 miles ot wire serving Bell System tele- phone users in New York State is en- closed in storm-proof cable, and nearly three-quarters ot It is in underground ducts. In tbe nation-wide system, with 83,445,000 miles ot telephone wire, nearly 95 per cent Is CQptained in cable, and three-fifths ot It is below the sur- face. He was born deaf, this elderly man who died the other day In a New York City hospital following an automobile accident. He was George Thomas Sand- ers, a name virtually unknown to tbe general public. Yet. because of his deaf- ness, he had played an important it Indirect part In the Invention of the telephone. George Sanders was only a small boy, back in the early 'seventies, when his father persuaded a young Scotch- man by the name of Alexander Graham Bell, a teacher of the deaf, to live in the Sanders home In Salem, Mass.. and train the boy to speak and read. The father, Thomas Sanders, a well-to-do leather merchaut, became so inter- ested in experiments which the young teacher was carrying on :n spare hours that be set up a workshop tor him In the basement. Bell's experiments at that time were on what he called the \harmonic tele- graph.\ He continued them upon re- moving to Boston, where again Mr. Sanders, grateful tor what Bell had done for his son. helped to equip an- other workshop. These studies led to developments resulting In 1876 in Bell's discovery of the principle ot the telephone and his success in 1876 in creating an instrument ^hich really \talked.\ When In 1877 It was decided to de- velop the telephone on a commercial basis, the deaf boy's father became a large financial backer ot the enterprise and was treasurer of the first eompany organized to promote tt. Thus a physi- cal affliction had an important part in an invention which was destined to revolutionize modern communication. When George Sandei-s grew to man- hood he became Interested In printing. For many years he had his own estab- lishment in a suburb ot Philadelphia. spent the week end with her mother, Mrs. Laura Horton.

Mo.-The \man in white\ tias triumphed again. Biologist and research chemist have Joined forces with electrical science to produce a new laboratory instrument that measures, to tha millionth ot a gram, the amount at vitamin A (Carotene) In feedstuOs (or poultry and livestock. \Vitamin A Is essential to the liealthXul existence ot man, bird and inlmal,\ 8»ys Lamar M. Kishlar. man- ner of Research for Purln» Mills. It It known as a resistance builder.. It iMlps the hody to funetlM nonaally and imM esrtain types of disease. \Vor yean after tlia dkeovery of tbe iaporUnoo of this vital sleinent In poultiy and animal autriUoo, the only way to maasure the Vitamin A <Caro* tans) content of feedstuSs was by act- ual fasdlnc teste on chicks, white rate. and other smaU laboratory animals. Naturally it took from 8 to 12 weeks before research men could tell, by the growth and development of the ani- mals. Just how much or how Uttle vita- min strength the tested feed or ingred- ient contained,\ Kishlar says. \But now after many years a speeding up process In vltemin testing has been developed In the Purina Agrlcidtural Research Laboratories. Today, with special photo electric equipment built by Purina Re- search sclentiste. it Is possible to detect and measure Vltanlllk- A (Carotene) content In four hours Instead of weeks of feeding experiment. \By this new m e t h ^ twelve samples can be tasted in a U^tlt over lour hours aitf their Vitamin A (Carotene) eon- tmt measured to millionth ot • gram.\ • Rats are a common source of tele- phone trouble in a crowded city. They raUsh gnawing tbe insulation from wires and thus causing interruptions to service. This was reported by Thomas Cbls- holm, a \trouble shooter\ ot the New York Telephone Company, when inter- viewed by Fred Allen during a recent \Town Hall\ program over a National Broadcasting Company network. Chis- bolm said that in Manhattan alone the company has a force of,about 700 men for quick handling ot a wide variety ot trouble cases, many ot which are dis- covered and remedied, however, before they develop into real trouble. Surveying his 21 years' experience, Chlsholm. recuUed his \most puzzling case\ as that uf a lelephune which \worked six days each week perfectly, but was always out of order on Mon- days.\ He finally found that every Mon- day tbe subscriber's wife hung out her laundry on a metal clothes line. Thus weighed down, the line touched the telephone wires, causing a short oli^ cult. His \narrowest escape.\ Chlsholm said, occurred when in the course ot his work an accentric old man locked him in a hotel room and threatened la kUl him It be shouted tor help. \When tbe man wasn 't looking,\ saM Cblsholm, \I took tbe telepboaa ra- ceivsr off.
