Vivian Leroy Chrisler, of the Bureau of Standards, sits in a box in the sound laboratory while studying the echo-producing properties of conditions found in talking picture theaters. The box prevents his clothing from intervening with the tests; note that the 'audience' sits in typical movie theater seats.
