The machine,- which detects the presence of contrabrand goods on persons crossing the'line by looking right through^ their clothes, "was invented during the'war by Henry SI- cular, San Francisco ^scientist. - ShowsVprofit Robert E. Noonan, United States collector of-customs .here, "saws the "inspec'toscope," in operation since Jufy, 1946,'has more than paid for Itself in"tollecting .lines 'on objects which otherwise -would, not have been, "declared" to customs inspectors for duty payment. ' Located just outside the customs house at San Ysidro, the outfit looks like a couple of. telephone booths set about four feet apart. The "inspectoseope"v8creen, in one booth, is operated "by a foot pedal, which, when pressed, shows first a head arid shoulders view, then a -midsection picture und finally a view of the lower, extremities. As the pedal, is pressed, each view lasts only six seconds, to avoid-in jury from the rays, Noonan says.

Keys "iii a man's' poskets may be seen so clearly that they may be counted, and the same with cigarettes in a package, -according to Noonan. Pens, pencils and wallets are earily identifiable. 2000 Seizures . Nearly 30,000 persons.have passed this magic .eye since its installation, and some 2000 seizures have been made, Noonan - said. About' 300 -an hour can be run through the "inspectoscope," as against 4 per hour -by the old method of having a'suspect undress, submit to search and don clothing again. The machine is not run at any sfft period of the day. At any -moment the inspectors may order all persons crossing the border on foot or in autos, to go through the machine. Noonan says the greatest good comes from the machine's de.terrent powers. Knowledge that the machine is there has stopped many a would- be smuggler and the number of declarations has risen "considerably." Boosted for Stalin's Job MOSCOW, Dec. 10.
