[Photograph 2012.201.OVZ001.0837]

Description: Photograph used for a story in the Oklahoma City Times newspaper. Caption: "Everbody from housewives to biochemists flocked into semi-centinneal Exposition's Cavalcade of Health building Friday to see what is literally the "hottest" exhibit at the fairgrounds. For the first time anywhere in the world, an operating nuclear reactor is on public view. And a chance to see a live reactor is almost rare for that biochemist as it is for Mrs. Jones. To scientists, especially the men of many fields here for a Nuclear Medicine society convention, the exhibit is a chance to see a "factory" which produces the isotopes they use in research, diagnosis and treatment.......How did Oklahoma score the worldwide scoop? Dr. Henry Turner, Cavalcade of Health exhibit chairman, pointed out Friday the credit goes to a number of agencies who helped cut the red tape under leadership of the Oklahoma Medical association. Plane trip Started It The story goes back to a plane trip last year, when Dr. Norman J. Holter happened to sit together enroute to Seattle. Dr. Holter is the Helena, Mont., physicist who headed the nuclear society the past year......Presence of hundreds of nuclear medicine delegates was clinching factor, Dr. Turner says. Most of the men have never seen an isotope source, while others had viewed the process only at Oak Ridge, under heavy security precautions.......Only radioactive substances with fairly long half-lives can be shipped cross-country. With a portable, relatively inexpensive isotope source right at hand, doctors hope to find ways to use isotopes, with shorter half-lives that would fade away from a patient's body quickly after doing their healing work."

Description: Photograph used for a story in the Oklahoma City Times newspaper. Caption: "Firemen Tuesday were digging through the smouldering ruins of three business firms destroyed by a blaze Monday night that caused damage estimated at $500,000. Smoke was still drifting out of the basement of the Fryberger and K of C buildings in the 200 block S Bickford that housed the C. R. Anthony store, the Brinkley furniture store and the Parks Furniture and Appliance Co. The fire broke out about 6 p.m. Monday and raged for six hours before it was brough under control. City Hall Damaged Firemen were chiefly cornered Tuesday over the K of C building, which they declared is "just a shell and might fall at any moment." They blocked off the area and were preparing to lower the walls before they tumble. The fire, famed by mild south wind, spread to the city hall, causing minor smoke and water damage to the fire department. The firemen's living quarters were threatened for a while, but the blaze was quickly brought under control. Cause of the fire was not immediatley determined, but it is believed it broke out in the basement of the Parks store, probably by spontaneous combustion.' Fire left this damage in its wake Monday night in downtown El Reno."

Description: Photograph used for a story in the Oklahoma City Times newspaper. Caption: "Oklahoma City is the center of a two-part directional television experiment that could eventually change accepted patterns of TV beaming. WKY-TV is one of two stations in the country picked to carry out the test. Its part will begin about July 15 and continue for two months. The testing project is a joint effort of the local stations and financers-the Radio Corporation of America, Television Allocation Study Organization and Maximum Service Telecasters...Tests are to be supervised by consulting engineers picked by TASO, an industry-wide research organization formed at request of FCC to do research in all phases of television. Conducting the other half of the experiment is WBZ-TV of Boston. It was picked for its coastal location and because of congested Boston surroundings...............Directional television has been in the research and ecperimental stages for a number of years. RCA recently finished a six-week series of tests - identical to those that will be conducted here - at its Gibbsboro, N. J. site. It used the same rotational antenna that is going up on the WKY-TV tower. The antenna was shipped intact on a special truck to insure a perfect comparison test. George Kumpf, RCA engineer who designed the rotational antenna, is here to oversee its installationalong with chief station engineers jack Lovell and Gene Lyons. Lovell attended the RCA tests in New Jersey. Lovell said directional beaming has been used by WKY radio for many years to protect certain areas from broadcast interference."
