Professor Furna agreed that this principle was "the only scientific principle upon which a screen should be built. Contrasting the flat to the con cave screen. Professor Furria said the latter gives the correct focus at cor ners of the screen and eliminates cur- .it ure .distortion. "These two improvements are espe cially noticeable of the theater close up and off the sides." he continued. "It is claimed by Professor Pech that approaching figures in the center of his screen appear slightly stereoscopic whereas in the flat screen we do not cet this. Incidentally that Is probablv the chief cause of fatigue in the flat screen.
