Market 722-4844 Schenectady Home Of TV EDITOR 'SNOTE — With so many experiments under way at the same time, it's difficult to pinpoint television's birthplace. Among the cities that lay claim to TV "firsts" is Schenectady, N. Y. There, 60 years ago, a handful of viewers witnessed the first broadcast to television sets installed in the home. SCHENECTADY, N.Y. (AP) -The flickering pink picture of a man playing a ukulele was a small miracle in an age of wonder, all but forgotten beyond the town once known as "The City That Lights The World." The year was 1928, and Schenectady had grown from a sleepy hamlet on the Erie Canal to a booming factory town where the General Electric Co. had its headquarters and its finest research talent. For two years, Ernst Fredrik Werner Alexanderson, a consulting engineer for GE and the Radio Corporation of America, had been tinkering with a machine that used perforated spinning disks to transmit pictures. On Jan. 13,1928, the first experimental television program was broadcast from the GE lab to the Schenectady homes of Alexanderson and two GE executives. There, scientists, company officials and reporters gathered to peer into the pinkish light of a tiny screen, 3 inches square, mounted in a cabinet. The two-hour program with simulcast radio sound began with a GE executive taking off his glasses and smoking a cigarette, followed by a radio announcer strumming a ukulele and humming "Ain't She Sweet." The event "heralded another human conquest of space," said a front-page story in the New York Times, which hailed it as "the first absolute proof of the possibility of connecting homes throughout the world by sight as they have already been connected by voice." This year, WRGB, the Schenectady station which claims that day as its birthday, is celebrating with a series of parties and programs commemorating 60 years of television history. ' 'We' re very proud of that heritage,'' says Terry Walden, WRGB's program manager and producer of a historical documentary on the station. "We're the only station that can trace its history back that far." Actually, the birthdate and birthplace of television are quite indistinct. "Television is one of the hardest areas to pinpoint 'firsts' in," says Eliot Sizowitch, a specialist in radio and television history at the Smithsonian Institution. Independent American inventor Charles Francis Jenkins produced the world's first working television and demonstrated it in Washington, D.C., in 1925. A comedy skit was broadcast from New Jersey to the Bell Telephone labs in New York City in April 1927. Westinghouse scientist Vladimir Zworykin developed the first electronic television system, which ultimately replaced the mechanical scanners, in the 1920s. But the demonstration in January 1928 in Schenectady apparently was the first broadcast to television sets installed in homes, according to the reference book, "Famous First Facts." The GE station was known as W2XB when it got its first federal license and started a regular program schedule in May 1928, with farm and weather reports three afternoons a week. It was the world's first regular television program schedule, according to "Famous First Facts." From there, WRGB boasts a series of "firsts" in television history. It televised the first "remote" broadcast (outside the studio), with an August 1928 live telecast of Gov. Alfred E. Smith accepting the Democratic nomination for president at the state Capitol in Albany. The following month, the station televised the first play, a blood-and-guts drama called "The Queen's Messenger," complete with props and sound effects. AIDS' Student Awaits Ruling By Board GRANITE CITY, 111. (AP) - An attorney for a 7-year-old with the AIDS virus says he will wait to see whether the school board will admit the boy into a regular classroom before filing a lawsuit to force the board to do so. Harvey Grossman of the American Civil Liberties Union said Tammie Robertson's request to have her son Jason put in a regular classroom was now with the board. "We have assurances (the board) will review this in short order," Grossman said, adding he did not know how soon a decision would be made. The board's next meeting is Tuesday. District 9 attorney William W. Schooley and Superintendent Gilbert V. Walmsley were unavailable for comment. Jason, a first-grader, is being tutored in a portable classroom at Prather Elementary School. Grossman said Jason should not be barred from a regular classroom. "I think the law is very clear on this matter, and without there being some other exception, this child should be in class," he said. Grossman said the ACLU was successful in gaining classroom access for a first-grader with AIDS at Jefferson School in Belleville, handled a case in western Illinois without litigation and has a case pending in Chicago. The ACLU filed suit against Belleville School District 118 in September to return the Belleville 6-year-old to class. The case was settled before a Nov. 30 hearing in federal court, and the school board voted unanimously in December to return the boy to school. The Belleville boy has not been publicly identified. During the course of the litigation, two doctors appointed by Chief Judge James Foreman gave written testimony that the boy posed no significant danger to others in a classroom. AIDS, or acquired immune deficiency syndrome, destroys the body's defenses against disease, leaving a person prey to life-threatening infections and certain cancers. The virus that causes the incurable and fatal disease is believed to be passed mainly through sexual intercourse, shared hypodermic needles and from infected mothers to their infants before or during birth.
