Resident Man ager Illinois Bell Telephone took the first step to introduce commercial Picturephone service in ni. The company asked the Illinois Commerce Commission in Springfield for permission to offer customers internal Picture- phone service effective Dec. 1. The second step of this milestone toward eventual global face-to-face communications local and intercity Picturephone service - will be Introduced in downtown Chicago in the second quarter of 1971. Although today's offering is available to all Illinois Bell customers in Illinois, the company expects that it will appeal primarily to businesses. Illinois Bell describes the basic Picture- phone system offered today as a network Interconnecting up to 10 Picturephone sets in a customer's premises. Initially, Picturephone service will not be available for local or long distance calling. But it will be expanded into downtown Chicago and the intercity network next year. The proposed rates for a typical three-set system are a $280 one-time charge and a $299 monthly rate.

The Picturephone rates are In addition to the customer's charges for his regular telephone service. Touch-Tone dialing is required for Picturephone service. Charles L. Brown, Illinois Bell president said introduction of Picturephone service "heralds a new era in the art of communication. This modest step will eventually result in a world-wide communications network with which people will be able to communicate visually as well as by voice. Someday, people will be able to use their telephones to do their shopping, visit a library or perhaps even go to work without leaving their homes." The basic Ficturephone installation consists of a viewing unit and a control unit plus a Touch- Tone telephone. The visual unit contains a screen 5 by 5-1/2 inches as well as the camera and associated circuitry. The Picturephone set includes several privacy features: the ability to zoom in on a subject or encompass several persons at a time; a camera which automatically adjusts to light conditions; height and volume control, and the ability to transmit small charts or graphic materials. A person can view himself on his Picturephone set to see how h> ; looks and he can turn off the picture completely if he wishes. 1971-72 State Scholarship Program The Illinois State Scholarship Commission today named 188 Proviso East and West students as State Scholars in the 1971-72 competitive State Scholarship Program.
