A WIRELESS EXPERT AT 13.
New Haven Boy who Rigged Up His
New York Sun.
New Haven, October 20.-Malcolm
Doolittle, aged 13, of 147 Bradley
street, has unaided studied the science
of wireless telegraphy, has built a
wireless station in the backyard of
his home and is able to pick ,up mes
sages from passing steamers ini the
Sound five miles awvay.,
A few months ago he read in a
children 's paper a description of a
wireless outfit and explanations as
to how a bright boy could rig up an
'outfit that would send messages
across the room. He told his father
that night that lie wvas goin~g to try
the trick, and his father laughingly
told him to go ahead, and that lhe
would give him $1 for every message
that lie could send across the room.
The youngster worked at the prob
lem every spare moment out'of school,
alnd one eveninig surprised his father'
by telling him that he was ready for
thaI f'irst. payimentI on the dollar ilanl,
as he could send a nmessage acr'oss thme
r'oomi. Thei fathter inspected the out
fit that had b)een. rigged iul and1 was
conviniced1 only after his son had senit
him messages across t.he 20 foot room.
Tlhen young Doohit Ile began to plan
to send messages all over the house
and( to interest the other boys in his
neighbor hood in the funm. Soon that
part of towni had various wvireless sta
tions rigged upl temporarily in draw
ing rooms, kitchens and laundries. The
-mont, but D)oolit.tle kept onl.
When the novelty of the house
equipment wore off young Doolittle
tacked the biger problem of transmit
ting and receiving messages outside,
aind wires were strung lip on the out
-side of the house. It was many weeks
before the lad could figure it all out,
but finally lhe struck it and then be
ganm aking lans for a 'tower iin the
back yard and a real wirlIess outfit.
A tower 75 feet high has nowv been
equiiped at a cost of $100, and from it
Doolittle can establish comnmieation
up to 100 miles. When the young in
veiitor got this rigged uip to suit him
lie began trying to catch the mes
- sages that were being flashed to the
Do Forest tower station in the western
part of the 'city, three or more miles
away from his honme.
The operators sending and receiving
messages at 'this station were speedy,

and at first the novice had difficult
in getting them. Finally lie learnt,
the secret and could pick up a me

Next young Doolittle began to pic

periment he found that this was migi
