    In the past, around the end of the last decade of the thirties, broadcast facsimile has to prove equal to sound broadcast as a public service.
    Nevertheless, it has definite possibilities as a public service and may eventually approach sound broadcast as an effective means of disseminating news and entertainment.
    The following references start wiht early consirdation of facsimile broadcast, and conclude with the publications in the thirties last decade.
    For one interested in the subject, the references cited should prove helpful in compiling a complete story of this phase of the facsimile art.
