"WE'LL TELEPHONE TO STARS!" DECLARES
SCIENTIST NIKOLA TESLA ,

New York, Oct. 13. The future of
the transmission of the human voice
will not be confined to this planet but
will be projected Jhrough the ether
until its vibrations-strike all the other
planets that svhrag' dizzily in space!
This authorized statement, of far
greater importance than the amazing
event which occasioned it, was un
equivocally made today by the world
famous scientist and discoverer of
the wireless principle.'Nikola Tesla.
The distinguished inventor gave'it
exclusively to The Day Book as the
direct result of the announcement by
the United States navy department
that its experts had recently succeed
ed in projecting the human voice by
wireless from Arlington, Va., to Mare
Island, CaJ,, a distance of 4,000 miles.
"This, in itself,, was, of course, a
brilliant experiment,' declared Tesla,
"and the experts are entitled to a
great credit, but believe me when I
say it is only the beginning.
"Very soon it will be possible for
us to see each other at distances of
thousands of miles; we shall be en
abled to hea? an opera, sermon or
scientific lecture, and be visually
present in all kinds of meetings and
transactions, wherever they may be
taking place, and without regard to"
where we ourselves happen to be at
the lime. ' . 7
"This- will become a daily business
experience, not only to transmit with
unerring precision a signature to an
important document, but, enable the
recipient in a distant country to see it
affixed by the sender.
"But the greatest and most' revolu
tionary of all these advance's on earth
will be the transmission of electrical
energy in large amounts, for all in
dustrial purposes. Once "a power
plant; Is in operation it will be possible
to operate' flying machines in any part
of the world without fuel, and light
isolated homes, in an Ideally simple
"When world wireless telephony,
the transport of bodies and materials
and the transmission of energy for all
industrial and commercial purposes
become facts, the earth will have
shrunkeriin size so as to put nations
Lin close, touch and make international
complications and wars an impossi
bility! "It is already practicable to project
from a machine made by man, elec
trical impulses of such intensity as to .
effect other planets," said Tesla.
"There isno difficulty in producing
a machine which would cause a dis-
turbance on Venus or Mars, sufficient l
