Television was delved into Tuesday'
when Mr. Lawrence visited Prof. Wal-
do Abbot's broadcasting class. -Here
from the R.C.A. Company to pre-
pare for the television demonstra-
tion Friday in Hill Auditorium, Mr.
Lawrence had much of import to im-
part in his interview with Jerome
Wiesner, Chief Radio Technician.
The intricacies of television lighting,
make-up, and illusion-creating he
disclosed, and discussed the problems
of pick-up, .production expense, andI
"vidio" effecting.-.
Television, Mr. Lawrence declared,
is difficult for those with analytical
jobs like sports announcing, and is
probably less eye-fatiguing than
movies-especially when the subject
"looks as well as it listens." He de-
scribed the mikes' positions outside
camera range, rehearsals that run
eight to fifteen times the program
length, and heat effects of working
under arc-lights. About 3,000 tele-
vision sets are on the New York mar-
ket, he revealed, and 20,000 in Lon-
don, where development first began.
Right now, sets retail from $600 down
to $200.
