Submarine Eye May Divulge Sea Secrets by Television Sioux Cityan Inventor of Device Which Is Beli-Shaped Unit . SIOUX CITY, W)--It's a long 3utnp from Iowa's cornfields to the mysterious depths of far-distant oceans, but that hasn't kept one lowan from dreaming about discovering sunken treasure--and doing something about it. The sea--and particularly what lies under its surface--has always fascinated Charles W. Heath of S;oux City. He has always wondered what would be found at depths beyond which man is able to descend, and he thinks his submarine eye, on which he received a patent in 1936, may hold the answer. With the submarine eye he hopes to reveal the sea's secrets by television. The eye itself is a bell-shaped unit 42 inches in diameter and designed to withstand the tremendous pressure encountered at great depths. It will weigh more than a ton. This television unit, equipped with powerful marine lights and photoelectric eye, is suspended by Winches at bow, stern, starboard and port control the eye's movements and permit the operator in the control cabin to tilt it in any direction desired. Mechanical scanning disks'pick up images on the ocean floor. These ught waves are converted into electrical energy and transmitted to the vessel by a cable. Though television principals are used, it is "direct" television and consequently the distortion o{ Broadcast television is not present. Casts Images on Screen The receiving apparatus on the ship translates the electrical impulses into light waves and casts the undersea images on a screen. An ordinary motion picture camera records the submarine views. Heath has had inquiries about the submarine eye from various salvage companies.

Phone 754 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE States navy, the coast guard and an oceanographic society also have expressed interest in the invention. _ Aside from the eye's possibilities m discovering sunken treasure ships and directing salvage work, Heath says it would have other uses, less romantic but equally valuable. He emphasizes its educational value in opening to scientists a new field of exploration, permitting study of deep sea life in natural habitat. Then there are commercial uses, such as searching out new sponge and oyster beds and discovering new mineral sources. Operates at 3 Mile Depths Divers seldom work deeper than 300 feet. Dr. William Beebe descended in his bathysphere approximately half a mile. Beyond that depth scientists know little of undersea life. Heath says the submarine eye will be able to operate at depths up to three miles. Even then the sea would still hold secrets, for in the Pacific ocean, near the Philippine islands, the bottom is six and a half miles down. The inventor thinks one of the advantages of the eye will be its extensive range. The control ship, by towing the television pickup apparatus a few feet from the ocean's floor, can explore consid- erable territory In a day. When the approximate location o£ a sunken ship is known the glowing eye can pick it up with greater ease than divers, whose range of activity is limited. Inventor Heath is a quiet, pipe- smoking man, though he has spent most of his life in the midwest he has a great love of the sea. Since the war, when he served in the navy, he has devoted most of his time to his invention. He is a construction mechanic by,trade. Destruction of 83 Slot Machines at Waterloo Is Ordered W A T E R L O O , (JP)--District Judge R.-W.
