Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 14, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta, December 14, 1971 THE IETHBRIDGE HERAID 7 Wrong turn leads to Same NEW YORK (AP) David Sarnoff was 15 when he went to apply for a job as a newspaper copy boy. He mistakenly turned into the office of the Commer- cial Cable Co., which hired him as a messenger. That wrong turn marked his entry into the world of the elec- tron. It changed his life and it indirectly influenced the lives of millions. Sarnoff, who died here atj 80, was a broadcasting pioneer and hard-driving businessman who became a major force be- hind the development of the electronic media. lie had been ailing for several years. He organized the National Broadcasting Co. and rose to head of the RCA Corp. When he retired in 1970, he left an em- pire which had a gross annual sales volume of more than S3 billion and turned out more than products. Because of his farsighted grasp of the practical possibm tics of radio, television and communications satellites, lie was a dominant figure in the electronic communications iiv duslry for more than 50 years.

Saving his money, he bought a telegraph instrument, learned Morse and was hired by the Marconi Wireless Telegraph In- strument Co. Ihs first step to fame came April 14, 1912, when he was wireless operator at the Mar- coni station atop Wanamaker's Store in New York. That night the Titanic struck an icebeig and sank with the loss of lives. Young Sarnoi'f picked up the staccato dots and dashes of the message from the British steamship: "Hit an iceberg. Sinking fast." For the next 72 hours, he told the world about the disaster, relayed names of the 700 survivors from a rescue ship and guided other rescue ships. To facilitate Sarnoff's job of picking up the weak signals, President William Howard Taft ordered all other wireless sta- tions along the East Coast si- lenced to prevent any interior' ence. PROPOSED HOME RADIOS In 1916, he wrote a memoran- dum to his superiors proposing that a "radio music box which "would make radio a household utility in the same sense as a piano or phonograph. The idea is to bring music into the home by wireless." Sarnoff estimated sales of one million sets, at a set, within Ihree years, for sales of mil- lion. Actual RCA sales from 1922 to 1924 amounted to million. In 1923. he penned another memo: "I believe that televi- iion, which is the technical name for seeing as well as tearing by radio, will come to pass hi the future."
