A new improved microscope, capable of magnifying without diffusion two 31,000 times, has been perfected here by Dr. Royal R. Rife, natural scientist, and has been on exhibition in the Bridges fine art gallery, Balboa Park.
The new, shining instrument is a combination microscope and micro-spectroscope, and is expected to extend the boundaries of knowledge into new fields, since it is capable of ferreting out objects which hitherto have been invisible to human perception.
A little more than a year ago in his tiny laboratory above the garage on the estate of the late A. S. Bridges, his benefactor, on Point Loma, Dr. Rife invented a microscope with a magnification of 20,000 diameters. With it, Dr. Rife and Dr. Arthur I. Kendall of Chicago made some astounding discoveries in the realm of physics.
The new instrument, which Dr. Rife calls the universal microscope, was constructed on the same lines as the first, making use of the variable, wedge-shaped prisms which were the unusual feature of the Rife microscope.
