New York, Sept. 25 — A new
transatlantic telephone cable sys-1
tem—the first physical voice link
to be established between North i
American and Europe—was inaug- j
urated today and opened to public
Cleo F. Craig, Chm. of Board of
American Telephone and Tele
graph Company, was the first to
speak over the $42,000,000 system
He exchanged greetings with Dr.
Charles Hill, head of the British
Post Office, who spoke from Lon
don. Their conversation, carried
with the clarity and naturalness ]
of a neighborhood call, highlight
ed inaugural ceremonies held here
and in Canada and Great Britain.
Mr. Craig also exchanged greet
ings with Mr. George Marlet,
Canadian Minister of Transport,
The cable system, under con
struction for more than two years,
is not'only the first of its kind to
cross the Atlantic, but the first
underwater phone link to span
any ocean. A.T. & T., the BPO
and Canadian Overseas Tele-com
munication Corporation are part
ners in the historic enterprise.
The deep-sea portion of the
system was laid under the super
vision of the I-ong Lines Depart
ment of A T. & T., the long dis
tance operating unit of the Bell
System Engineers and scientists
of Bell Telephone Laboratories
designed and tested the system.
The transatlantic system can
carry 36 conversations at the same
time. Thus, it is able to handle
about three times the traffic now
transmitted between this continent
and Great Brilian by radiotele-,
The deep-sea segment of the
system extends 2,250 miles from
Clarenville, a small village on the
east coast of Newfoundland, to
Oban, Scotland. From Oban, new j
trunk lines link the system to
switchboards in London.
On this continent, newly con
structed land and water sections
bring the transatlantic circuits to
Portland, Maine, and to Montreal,
where they connect to the estab- j
ilshed American and Canadian
The underwater cables that rep- j
resent the backbone of the system j
were placed by the cableship Mon
arch, the largest cable-laying ves
The 8,050 ton Monarch took a
total of seven months to complete ;
laying operations. She worked
only in summer, when the turbu- j
lent North Atlantic is on its best
behavior. At that, she took a
battering from hurricane lone in
September of 1955 but finished!
her job on schedule.
While laying, Monarch carried
as much as 1,300 nautical miles of
cabl“. Her cable laying speed was
about six knots.
S'inct cables of the design used
in ihe Atlantic section of the sys
tem transmit in but one direction,
two cables were needed to make a
conversation possible. The two

cables lie some 20 miles apart on
the ocean floor; the southernmost
transmitting west to east and the
northernmost east to west.
Both cables, which have an
average overall diameter of 1 ’.4
inches, were put down in three
segments. In June of 1055, 200
miles of the west to east cable was
placed from Clarenville to the
edge of the Continental Shelf. A
second segment extended this
cable to a point 500 miles off Scot
land and the third closed the gap.
Some 300 miles of cable was also
placed across Cabot Strait in the
spring of this year, linking the
terminal at Clarenville to the new
land line at Sydney Mines, Nova
Successful completion of the
Atlantic cable system climaxed a
quarter of a century tof active re
search in this field by communi
cations men on both sides of the
The particular problem that had
to be overcome was development
of an underwater amplifier, or
“repeater”, an electrical device
that would boost voice signals
after they had reached the fading
point along a circuit. While
repeaters are relatively easy to
install and maintain along land
cable, the undersea cable demand
ed an amplifier that could;
(1) by built into the cable in
such a way as to be able to pass
easily through a ship’s laying
gear without interruptnion.
(2) withstand pressures of at
least 6,000 pounds per square
(3) operate without attention
for at least 20 years.
Bell Telephone Laboratories,
after years of research, perfected
such a repeater, which has been
under test for 15 years and in
operation in cables stretching
from Florida to Cuba since 1951.
The repeaters, about eight feet
long, appear as a slight fattening
in the cable and might not be
noticed by the unpracticed eye as
they slide seaward from the ship’s
gear. To keep signals constant
and clear, 51 repeaters, spaced a
bout 40 miles apart, are located in
The repeaters were manufac
tured by Western Electric Comp
any at Hillside, New Jersey, in a
building that was once a bus
terminal but is now one of the
. cleanest factories in the world.
The submarine cable used in
the transatlantic system was man
ufactured in both this country and
| Great Britian. The American
manufacturer was Simplex Wire
and Cable Co., of Cambridge,
j Mass.; the British, Submarine Ca
i hies, Ltd., of Greenwich, England.
of Cars Is
The way a car depreciates in
value almost as soon as you buy
it, it’s a wonder there are as many
of them on the road as there are.
Take the Hawkins family auto
—all shiny and just the same
shape as the day it was bought,
j Mr. Hawkins paid nearly $1,500
| for it, but he sold it for a mere
$150. Even so, he did better than
some car owners we know who
have sold cars costing that much
for as little as $25, used.
But $150 isn't much; it hardly
reimburses one for the sentimen
tal wrench involved. To be sure,
it wasn't this year’s model, or
even last year’s. But for economy
with gasoline it could outdo the
most up-to-date streamliner or.
the road. And repairs? Well, it
isn’t likely to need any more in
the next 40 years than it has in
The Long Island Automotive
Museum got a bargain when it
bought Mr. Hawkins’ Milburn
Light Electric, that is all we can
say. And not counting the mein
1 ories. What a cutup a light elec
tric could be on Main Street be
| tween 1910 and 1920: Catching
J everybody's eye. And scaring
the horses—for a snappy job like
i that was rare then; not like it
! is now when a horse would be
j more likely to scare a car.

Ten Steps to Canning Blueberries
m 1..« .ai. .-Mm heu
Blueberries are in such plentiful supply now you’d do well to
can some for next winter’s enjoyment. Follow these steps carefully
and you’ll find the canning process a much simpler one than you
may have thought:
1. Prepare a medium sugar syrup (1 cup sugar to 2 cups water)
by stirring over low heat until sugar dissolves, then boiling five
minutes. Make Va cup of syrup for each pint jar of fruit. Sugar
syrup helps to conserve essential vitamins, points up the true flavor
of the berries and protects their natural color and texture.
2. Have kettle, jars, tongs, etc., immaculately clean.
3. Fill canning kettles (one with rack on bottom) to a point al
least 1 inch above tops of jars and place over high heat.
4. Wash fruit, using a colander or wire basket and pack ac
closely as possible, without crushing, into hot jarB. Leave jars
U empty. . . _
6. Fill jars to within ‘/i. inch of top with sugar syrup. Remove
air bubbles by running table knife down side of each jar.
6. Set jar lids in place and seal partially or completely, according
to the type container you use. Allow jars to stand in pan of very
hot water for a few minutes. ...
7. Be sure water in kettle is at a full, rolling boil. Place hot jars
on rack in the kettle so that they do not touch each other. Be cer
tain water covers jars by at least 1 inch.
8. Process pint-sized jars for 1G minutes, beginning timing when
water again reaches rapid boil. Maintain rapid boil throughout |
processing time and add water if necessary.
9. When processing is over, remove jars with tongs nnd place on I
towel away from drafts; never place on a cold surface. Completely ;
seal at once If a partial seal was used.
10. When jars are cold, wipe thoroughly and label with name of
product and canning date.
