Sound and light were grouped
into a language.
Drums and gongs replaced logs.
Smoke signals were devised. Then
came semaphore and signal lamps,
cannons and rockets. The art de-
veloped slowly.
But suddenly distance was not
such a problem. In 1844 Samuel
V. B. Morse invented the telegraph.
Alexander Graham Bell, in 1876,
gave the world the telephone.
Then there'was radiotelegraphy
in 1896, radiotelephony in 1900.
The first voice went overseas in
1915, and in 1921 telephone cables
were laid between Florida and
Cuba. Then came commercial
radio, then television.
Cable Links Continents
By 1956 the first transoceanic
telephone cable linked New York
wth Great Britain. Other cables
followed: Alaska in 1956, Hawaii
in 1957, Paris in 1959, Puerto Rico
in 1960.
Now it is 1962, Americans will
cluster around television sets to
watch live, for the first time, ac-
tion takiig place in selected parts
of Europe.
In the split-second lag between
the action and its appearance on
screens half-way around the
world, the picture will have trav-
eled hundreds of miles into the
heavens to be amplified 10 billion
times by a tiny satellite called
Telstar, and then beamed back to
Growing Links
One TV program requires an
electrical path wide enough to
carry 600 telephone conversations.
This, with the ever-growing need
for more and faster intercontinen-
tal communications links, has
prompted the satellite communi-
cations program, into which the
Bell Telephone System alone will
have poured $50 million by next
year. Bell now operates about 500
circuits for overseas communica-
tions, will need 12,000 by 1980.
Because it would take 50 under-
sea cables of present design to
m1eet this demand, and because n
such cable can transmit television
signals, engineers are looking to
microwave, and to the heavens, for
the answer.
McLean Cites
Pollen Count
The daily "pollen count" does
not give the hayfever or asthma
sufferer a complete picture of his
symptoms according to Prof. James
A. McLean of the medical .school.
While the pollen count can be
of some help to the doctor, it
can't be relied upon completely
by the patient, he said recently.
Also, each individual's allergic
reaction is influenced by many
factors such as rain and damp
weather, sudden temperature
change, food reactions, dusty
winds, mental and emotional
strain, and pollen and mold spores
in the air, McLean explained.
All these factors can affect a
person's daily symptoms, and thus
a doctor takes the total allergic
load to which a person is exposed
into account, he said.

Tower in the Sky
Bell has set up a "tower" in the
sky-the tiny (34-inch-diameter,
170-pound) Telstar satellite by
which the continents of Europe
and America are linked for the
first time by live television.
Bell payed about $3 million to
Uncle Sam to have its tiny, com-
plex station set into orbit from
a pad at Cape Canaveral. A Delta
booster rocket powered the satel-
lite into an elliptical orbit ranging
in altitude between 575 and 3,450
nautical miles, inclined 45 degrees
to the equator. Each orbit takes
2 hours and 36 minutes.
The satellite's solar cells pick
up power from the sun, converting
the energy for storage in its nic-
kel-cadmium batteries.

Experimental Signals
Experimental signals-television,
telephone, radio and telegraph-
will be transmitted from a $15
million ground station build by the
American Telephone and Tele-
graph Company at Andover, Me.,
and will be picked up by the satel-
lite while it is in line of sight
between Andover and Europe. A
British Station at Goonhilly Down
in Cornwall, England, and a
French duplicate of the Andover
station at Lannion form the other
To send and receive the signals,
engineers have constructed at An-
dover the largest horn antenna
yet built - a 340-ton. rotating
structure patterned after a 40-
foot-long horn at Helmdel, N.J.,
which was used in earlier Project
Echo experiments.
The Andover horn has a length
of 177 feet, an opening of about
3,600 square feet. It is built to the
accuracies of a fine watch, and is
protected by an inflated 20-ton
dacron and synthetic rubber ra-
dome 210 feet in diameter and
161 feet high.-
Scientific Pursuits
One of Telstar's main purposes
is to discover more about the na-
ture, of the space through which
future communications satellites
must operate. But to the vast ma-
jority of the two-continent audi-
ences watching the programs re-.
layed, such scientific pursuits willj
be secondary.
America's three major television
networks will send to Europe
whatever they determine to be
''among the most significant and
interesting events taking place" ina
the United States at the time.
The European program, to be'
produced by the 16-nation Euro-
pean Broadcasting Union, will in-
clude live pickups from 16 points'
throughout Europe.
.Each program will last about 12
minutes, while the satellite is in
the proper line-of-site position]
above the two continents.
The historic project is a step
toward the eventual goal of con-+
tinuous communications across
oceans by means of a continuous+
parade of relay satellites.
Telstar, with a life expectancy
of about two years, is expected to
point the way toward satellites'
that will endure in space for five]
to 10 years, providing instantane-1

It's a far, cry from the stick

A second technique the Reading
Dynamics student utilizes is the
repression of sub-vocalizing, or
inward lip-reading common to the
average reader. Instead of trans-
mitting words to his mind via the
lips, the student is taught to use
his eyes to "trigger the mind."
No student is permitted to allow
his eyes to regress over material
he has already read. He is trained
to progress steadily, comprehend-

Is your scholarship taxable?
According to the New York
Times, students have been in-
creasingly successful in obtaining
refunds on scholarship taxes with-
held by their schools, by applying
for exemption under Section 117
of the Internal Revenue Code.
Some, however, have not been
excused by the Internal Revenue
Service from paying income tax
on their stipends. Others have filed
amended returns for previous
taxes paid on scholarship grants,
and had their tax accounts ad-
j usted.
Demand Payment
However, some students have not
been excused by the Internal Rev-
enue Service from paying income
tax on their stipends. They have
taken their cases to the courts,
which, as tax lawyer H. William
Callman points out, are taking a
lenient attitude towards the stu-
A New York tax court exempted
a student from taxation of his
scholarship and ruled that these
grants should not be taxed when
their purpose is to further the
education and training of the stu-
dent. This ruling specified a broad
interpretation of Section 117 in
favor of the student.
However, a student must file a

return in order to recover the
withheld funds.
Fulbright Grant
Teachers overseas on Fulbright
grants were also given a tax break
by a recent court interpretation.
The court ruled that travel ex-
penses, meals and lodging may be
deducted, if such expenses are
reasonable and necessary. A Jan-
uary ruling by the Internal Rev-
enue Service agreed.
Fulbright teachers, unlike Amer-
icans working overseas for private
companies, are not totally exempt
for United States income taxes.
The Times article also noted
that students with summer jobs
netting less than $600 have missed
out on refunds on withheld taxes,
because they failed to file re-
turns. Although a return is not
required for earnings less than
