Photograph shows experimental testing of PICTUREPHONE set (left foreground) at Bell Tele-phone Laboratories. Set is being developed for PICTUREPHONE Service, subject of an article on page 14 of this issue. The first transcon-tinental PICTUREPHONE Service call was made April 20 from the New York World’s Fair to Disneyland in California. Market trial of the new service is expected in the next few months, although service for private businesses and residences is still some distance in the future.
