It will have a screen like a TV set, a device for printing words on paper, and a keyboard. The lady of the house will use it for filing recipes and balancing the family checkbook. It can also serve as an employment agency, travel service, library, and dally newspaper. Your machine will be connected to a central computer complex in some remote location, maybe even In another part of the country. It will give you access to all kinds of stored Information, plus the facilities for processing data of your own such as check stubs. The computer will have become a public utility. TS A SMALL way, it already has. "An information utility will soon pervade every element of civilized life," said Charles W. Adams of Adams Associates, Cambridge, Mass., chairman of a session on computer utilities at the convention of the Association For Computing Machinery. "The possible applications of this utility are widespread and becoming wider yet." In his inside coat pocket, Adams carries a mock-up of the possible future portable computer terminal It is flat, like a wallet, and when you open it up there is a small keyboard, like a typewriter's. Most computer experts, however, think in terms of a somewhat larger machine for permanent installation at home, like a telephone. They call it the "fireside computer." A couple of little problems stand in the way before you can order yours. Mainly, they are legal problems. If computers are going to become a utility, someone will have to regulate them. The Federal Communications Commission already has the question under study. SOMEONE WILL have to decide whether a computer utility should be a monopoly or competitive. And it will be necessary to settle some brewing conflicts between the computer people and the owners of the wires that carry the messages the common communications carriers. The communications people like to sell a complete service. You pay just one organization for your telephone or teletype and for the use of the , circuits that carry its messages. J " of future ivill operate home Computer services own no wires. They want to be able to buy the circuits and then be free to do whatever they want with them. "We are seeing greater and greater points of rivalry between computer and communications services," said Dr. Mauley R. Irwin, a panelist from the University of New Hampshire. Another problem 1 s protection o f privacy. Computer tapping could be as easy as telephone wire tapping, and there could eventually be a scandal that would lead to tough restrictions from Congress, Irwin said. AS COMPUTERS get bigger, the cost of processing a given amount of data becomes less. Soon, it was predicted, the cost of transmitting the data from one point to another will be the main expense. Some computer makers are interested in setting up wide networks to link remote users to central computers, but they have a wary eye on the phone companies once " " " " " " " " " " " " " " " " " mm mew BUNKER MILL 23,900 Your Choice of Many Plans PRICES $18,500 TO $25,500 Ranches Bi-Levels 2 Stories ALL CITY UTILITIES NO ASSESSMENTS VA-FHA-CONVENTIONAL FINANCING DIRECTIONS: Hamilton Avenue to Struble Road, turn west V2 mile to Bunker Hill.

Save dollars on kitchen equipment By Barbara Kober COOK AN entire meal even for company without a kitchen range? Yes, it can be done. Electrification specialists have studied the situation and found hope for the bride or any homemaker whose budget Just cannot be stretched far enough to include a range. Portable electric cooking appliances can fill in they solve the problems, the telephone people could undercut them by going Into the business themselves and using their own circuits at less cost than their charge to others. One panelist challenged the idea of the computer as a public utility. "I doubt if it will ever make sense to send your square roots out of town for processing," said Ronald F. Denz of Tele-max Corp., East Orange, N. J. "It will be a local service, like dry cleaning. That's no utility. But a Western Union man In the audience stood up and noted that his company now provides two kinds of com-puterlzed Information services. You can get a machine in your office, he said, that will give you peoples' Job resumes at the touch of a button, and another, for lawyers, that looks up case citations stored in a computer data file. "They are, if you will," he said, "utilities in every sense of the world." IN the gap between the present and more affluent days. Many brides, In fact, might even find enough of these small cooking utensils among wedding gifts. A homemaker can cook and serve good meals every day and even be a good hostess when she entertains by using an automatic electric fry pan, a saucepan, an automatic buffet cooker and a portable oven. With a little careful planning, just about any kind of food can be cooked in these appliances. Compare costs. A SET OF portable items Including fry pan, saucepan, Dutch oven or buffet cooker and oven could run from $60 to $135, according to U. S. Department of Agriculture studies. Three similar utensils for on-top-of-the-range use, plus the cost of a 30-inch single oven range, might run from $170 to $350. A deluxe two-oven range could cost as much as $400 or more.
