'Enforcer teams' tour

Beirut streets

By AP and Reuter
BEIRUT, Lebanon - Cease-
fire "enforcer teams" toured
Beirut yesterday using bull-
horns to urge rival gunmen to
clear the streets. Despite the
aura of impending peace, Chris-
tian concern mounted over the

growing Palestinian role in Le-
banon.
Looters also made off with
$1 million worth of cigarettes:
from a government depot and
other gunmen sacked the Agri-
culture and Justice Ministries
without meeting any resistance.

T Vcelebrates its
, - I
50th anniversary
LONDON (AP)-Television had its 50th birthday yester-
day, having come a long way from an outlandish contraption
made of knitting needles, tin cans and cardboard held to-
gether by sealing wax and glue.
A half-century ago, John Logie Baird, a shock-haired I
Scotsman, astounded 40 eminent scientists on a wintry Lon-
don night with the first public demonstration of his "tele-
visor."
THEY WATCHED FASCINATED as "a faint and often
blurred" image of the head of a ventriloquist's dummy called
"Bill" fluttered on a crude screen in the inventor's labora-
tory in the sleazy Soho district.
The picture of the dummy's head impaled on a stick was
transmitted from one room to another in Baird's second-floor
laboratory on a weird machine made largely of ordinary
household items and a spinning disc.
At about the same time in the United States, an Ohio-
born inventor named Charles. Francis Jenkins was also be-
ginning the transmissionrofcrude black and whitesilhouettes.
Jenkins continued his work with a number of broadcasting
companies until his death in 1934, but history books give,
Baird most of the credit for the invention of television.
BRITISH JOURNALIST BILL FOX, 86, who was closely
associated with Baird and witnessed the first demonstration,
recalled that the transmission caused a vibrating hum that
"went right through my head."
FOX LATER PARTICIPATED in Baird's experiments and
became th'e first face to be transmitted across the Atlantic
to New York in 1928.
"I sat on a chair beneath 1,000-watt lamps. It was very
hot. I sat rigid. Then I heard Baird shout: move, speak, say
anything," he said.
"At that moment my face was being transmitted across
the Atlantic. A friend in New, York watching the receiver
recognized me. I said something, although they couldn't hear
me in New York. But the dumb show was to prove that the
picture was really of a living person."
AFTER THAT TRIUMPH, Baird told Fox: "I think I can
do color."
His optimism was never rewarded, and his system was
never used by the British Broadcasting Corp. The BBC started
the first regular television program,confined to 'the London
area, in 1936, using the electronic system. Baird's system
was partly mechanical, using the spinning disc to transmit
pictures.
Baird did produce color" transmissions, but the company
he set up foundered a few years later. Baird died in 1946,
just as commercial television was getting off the ground. He
left an estate of $16,800, a poor return for what became a
billion dollar industry around the world.
