Farnsworth, inventor of television, spoke at a senior high assembly Tuesday in 250-Mr. Farnsworth, native of Rigby, Idaho, spoke to the attentive A. audience about his invention of the television receiver and sender. Mr. Farnsworth started his life in science at the age of 13, when he invented a tube connected with his future invention. Twenty-fou- r years ago Mr. Farnsworth attended Brigham Young University" which 'he had to leave after a year nr so upon the death of his father. It was one and a half years after thisthat he started a television laboratory in San Francisco. Soon after, the first recognizable prints were being transmitted. Television is not available in this area, Mr. Farnsworth said, because the rays travel in optical paths, and so are unable to come across the mountains separating us from the .stations in Salt Lake City. A Mr. Farnsworth continued by saying that in about two or three years television may be as common as radio is today. He esti- mated' that one million television sets will be in use by the end of the year. The .present gpal Mr. Farnsworth is working tovtfard is the successful transmission of rays across the entire United States.
