Watch Your Favorite TV Show ANY Time
The race to market a home TV tape recorder is getting hotter. Fairchild’s entry offers a much-improved picture
ONE of these days, you’ll sit down after supper, flip the dials on your home TV tape recorder, and watch a rerun of that afternoon’s base-ball game.
Recently I spent an afternoon trying out a prototype model of such a machine made by Fairchild Camera and Instrument Co. I recorded programs off the air â€”both pictures and soundâ€”while I was watching the program. Immediately after the show, I played back the recording while the images of the original telecast were still fresh in my mind. Although there was some loss of definition, the image quality was goodâ€”as good as most people see on their home TV sets. I watched the playback of an entire Danny Kaye show recorded a few days earlierâ€” without being conscious that I was watching a recording.
Desk-Size Facsimile Machine
Smaller than a typewriter, a miniature self-contained telegraph “office” provides the executive with 24-hour telegram service. Telegrams are sent and received simply by pushing a button. They don’t even have to be typewritten. You simply write out the message on a blank, wrap the blank around the drum of the machine and turn it on. A scanner views the message and sends it to the addressee where an exact copy is reproduced by an identical machine. Transmission time of about 2-1/2 minutes is required to handle a full message. The call is routed through the main office of Western Union, which directs the message to its destination and bills the sender.
What I found really interesting about this article is the picture of Roosevelt on the second page. He was generally tried to hide the fact that he had Polio from the public. But if you look at that picture it’s obvious that he’s holding the man on the right for support. It also looks like he is using his other hand to support him self on a cane and possibly has leg braces under his pants. Rarely do you see unobstructed pictures of F.D.R standing.
Bodyguards Face Death to End Kidnap Menace
IN THE ordinary run of things, a man does not go about looking for trouble. But this is not the case with a new type of professional men. They are called bodyguards. Trouble is their business Ã¢â‚¬â€ and death not infrequently is their reward.

Film Star’s Photos Printed on Pillows
Not content with collecting photographs and autographs, star-struc movie fans in England go their American sisters one better by buying novelty pillow covers bearing the likenesses of their favorite movie stars. Almost life size, the pillow portraits are real photographs printed on the fabric by a photographic-printing process. The material is first treated with a sensitizing solution, then exposed under the negative, and finally developed and fixed. Movie-star draperies, upholstery, and dress fabrics are being manufactured in a similar way.

Ah yes, the glorious 1950′s when choosing a Geiger counter was part of every boy’s right of passage. People may not remember their first kiss, but they sure as hell remember their first multi-tube scintillation counter.
How to Choose a Geiger Counter
Rate meter? Multitube counter? Scintillation counter? Here an expert advises you on how to buy a uranium-finding instrument.
By Griff Borgeson
HUNTING uranium with a Geiger counter is like stalking game with a well-trained hound. All of the hundred-odd kinds of uranium ore are radioactive, and hardly any other rocks are. So a counter’s ability to “see” radiation can lead straight to pay dirt.
Counters are the great equalizers of the uranium rush. Thev give a tenderfoot an even break with trained mining men. and account for rank amateurs’ successes in history’s greatest metal hunt.
You can pay from about $20 to $2,000 for a counter, and choose from dozens of models. Which will best suit your needs?
