The Associated Press "Photofax"
transmits pictures directly without
need of a darkroom. The machine
consists of a large grey metal
cabinet with two rolls of paper
above it to be fed through. The
cabinet's innards are filled with an
array of wiring, radio tubes and
It employs a special fan to cool
the tubes. In the machine's back
is a small telephone loud-speaker
from which 'a continuous stream

Prof. Karl F. Zeisler of the jour-
nalism department explained the
machine uses chemically treated
paper which reacts to electric cur-
rent. An electric scanning device
creates the print much as a tele-
vision image is produced.
As the picture passes over the
electric plate, a strong current will
turn the paper black while grays
are produced by milder currents.
As every part of the picture passes
over the plate, the picture can be

was developed in Britain for tele-
vision stations. The pictures were
photographed in such a way that
they served as background sceA ery
great deal of value. It lets the
student look in on inside informa-
Although the machine is yet to
be completely perfected, it has
many advantages over the stand-
"Its value lies in the fact it
cuts out the darkroom," Prof.
Maurer said, "and is quicker in
process than the wire-photo. The
process still needs development for
use in engraving although some
newspapers are experimenting in
use of the picture directly."
The usual use for the machine
is as a monitoring device. The
newspaper editors can rapidly de-
termine the pictures coming over
the wire-photo and even find out
what their own photographers are
The instrument is going through
a process of constant development.
The lines have been made much
finer and the resultant picture has
become decidedly clearer.
"We as faculty are quite inter-
ested in developments in this
field," Prof. Maurer explained.
"These pictures come over with
the cutlines," he pointed out. The
students can compare their own
writing with the professional writ-
ing describing each picture.
Prof. Maurer said the journalism
students have taken strong inter-
est in the device. The department
plans to display the transmitted
photographs in Mason Hall.
The department chairman ex-
tended an invitation to all students
who have interest in the machine
to come over and see it.

AA Traffic Situation Studied
A Detroit firm employed to con-
duct an extensive survey of the
Ann Arbor traffic situation said
yesterday it is unable to say when
the project may begin.
The city council has appropri-
ated $15,000 for the survey. Mayor
William E. Brown, Jr., said yes-
day that he hopes the necessary
information to be collected will be
gathered within 90 days.
Lloyd Reed Company could not
say how much time will be needed
to complete such an operation.

Reed said that before such a
survey can begin, all available
information must first be collected.
When this is finished, the company
can then go ahead and plan the
survey. Preliminary information
had not been evaluated as yet,
Typical of the methods to be
employed by the firm will be
traffic counts at intersections and
on main streets, tabulation of
availability of on- and off-street
parking facilities, and inquiries of
car drivers about their points of
departure and destinations.
Survey Used In Future
The results of the survey will be
used in the planning of future city
developments,- parking areas, and
other projects dependent on the
