Talkie Work of
Large Contribution of Bell
Laboratories to First
Sound Film Told.
Copyright, 1946, United Stotts Brcutrs Foundation
One of the le^.ri ng contributors
was the Bell Telephone laboratories,
and its p =rt :r. the development of
sound pictures has been told by the
magazine of the American Tele-
phone and Telegraph company.
“The story of the development of
successful sound picture apparatus
by the Bell system goes back to
1912,” the magazine says. "In that
year a young inventor named Lee
trie engineers cno of the great in-
ventions of all time—the three-ele-
ment tube he called the “audion.’
In that tube, he was sure, would
be found the answer to the problem
of amplifying weakening telephone
conversations as they traveled
along long-distance telephone lines.
Accordingly, t e Beil system pur-
chased the deForest audion in 1913
and telephone engineers immediate-
ly set to work to see what it could
High Vacuum Tube.
“Led by H D Arnold, Bell sys-
tem scientists emerged with the
high vacuum tube which was to be
the fundamental agent making it
possible to establish a transconti-
nental telephone system. But more
than a first class amplifier was
needed. Higher quality transmitters
and a wide variety cf associated ap-
paratus also had to be designed.
Much of it might be tested and com-
pared by using sound recordings.
“The engineers who began initiat-
ing these studies of sound found it
necessary to obtain recordings of
far higher quality than those avail-
able by the commercial processes
of the contemporary phonograph in-
dustry'- Therefore they began to ex-
periment with the recording cf
sound on film .an old but still fairly
primitive laboratory art> while sim-
ultaneously seeking to improve the
wax disk method of records g.
“Meanwhile, attention was given
to the development of an improved
microphone which would give uni-
form response to all pitches in the
audible range. The magic of the
high vacuum tube amplifier made :t
possible to design the condenser
microphone, which, unlike previous
‘mikes,’ did not need to generate
its own po*er.
Elements of Sound Film.
“The scientists working with
new recording techniques likewise
were achieving superior results. By
1916 they had developed two im-
proved methods of recording sound
on film and also were able to obtain
fine results from wax disk record-
ings. A high quality public address
system was the next achievement
“By this time, then. Western
Electric engineers had all essentia!
elements for producing a sound mo- .
tion picture, namely: (1) a high
quality microphone capable of
transmitting a wide range of sound
frequencies without distortion, ' 2 ■
the vacuum tube amplifier, (3) supe-
rior methods cf recording sound on
film and wax disks and (4* a loud
speaker of high quality capable of
delivering ur.distorted and amplified
sound in a wide range of frequen-
“An improved device fer syn-
chronizing motion pictures with
electrically produced sound was
constructed *and the engineers be-
lieved it was time to see whether
they could successfully make
sound movies. Using the wax disk
method, they produced the first
electrically recorded talking pic-
ture, which was exhibited at Yale
university October 27, 1922."

Electric Service for 30 Years
STEADY INCREASE YEAR A??ER YEAR
Constant addition of rural electric tines is no new activity
with the Texas Power & light Company, pioneer of rural
electrification service in Texas. 'W ay hack in 191'. this com-
pany began extending its lines to farms and outlv ing commu-
nities. By 1921, we had brought electricity to 6.026 farm and
rural families. This number has almost doubled even- ten
years, as we consistently added more ansi more lines to sene
more and more farm families each year. Today, approxi-
mately 7,000 miles of the Company's rural lines alone—
serve more than 68,000 farm and rural homes.
Extending electric service to rural areas at first presented
many difficulties, among which was the high cost of equip-
ment to make service available to outlying areas. This com-
pany's engineers, after years of experience in rural line
construction, in 1930 worked out design details and com-
pleted construction on the first ridge-pin, common neutral
type of cross-country line, using smaller poles and 400-foot
spans of wire. This development and the cooperation of
the company's engineers with manufacturers in devekvpmg
smaller transformers and new type conductors permitting
up » 600-foot spans, contributed to metre wire-spread rural
eJectrificarioe through lower cost rural construction
Thanks to the Texas Power A light Company, rural elec-
trification has steadily increased for SO vears in North.
Central and East Texas.
