Aviators Can Now Talk
To People on the Ground
Twenty-five Miles Away
After a dozen or more public dem
onstrations of the reliability of the

from & person on the ground to an
aviator in flight, its use. combined
with a ground line, in a two way con
versation. for obtaining Increased dis

A test of the two-way conversation
was conducted yesterday afternoon
with entire success. Major General
Kenly, director of military aeronau
tics, held a conversation with Lieuten
ant I.uoas, an army aviator stationed
at Boiling Kleld. who was flying over
the southern outskirts of the city dur
ing the experiment.
Sat at Hla Dealt.
The isdio system was installed at
BtJIling Field, and General Kenly con
ducted the conversation while seated
at his desk in the War Department,

This system was installed under
the direction of the inventor of the
phone. Col. Clarence C. Culver, the
work being done by members of the
radio branch of the air service.
It is considered that with the use
of the ground-line syste.n it will soon
be possible for orders to be transmit

city to an aviator in full flight over

The re< 6rd radio phone communica
tion distance was established on De

transmitted for a distance of 100
miles between the Navy Department
and a hydroplane from the Anacostia
naval aviation base.
liven in the worst weather condi
tions, when the "static" was operat
ing against the radio phone to the
fullest extent, it has been found pos
sible to send messages over a dis
tance of twenty-five miles.
Thus, with a twenty-five-mile
radius from the ground phone at the
minimum, an aeroplane anywhere
within a circle fifty miles across with
the ground phone as a center, can be
controlled from any point to which
the ground line may be extended from
this central point. In this manner.

by a suitable system of ground radio
phone stations, it would be entirely
practicable for the War Department
to keep In constant contact with a
plane flying in any part of the Uni
iMorrs Aerial Mall.
An example of the value of this may
be shown by tha aerial mail system.
A plane carrying mail* between New
York and Washington develops mo
tor trouble. Immediately a radio
phone message is sent to an aarial
mail station. "We are going to land
ten miles south of Bustleton, Pa. Send
a plane for the transfer of our mail.
The relief plane is sent, the transfer
of the mail made and the mail is once

of January 1. 1917. when she fell
down an elevator shaft in Mrs. Gib

avenue northwest, from the fourth
floor to the basement.
Miss Gernat testified that Mrs. Gib
son asked her on the night of Janu
ary 1 to call another servant. In
her efforts-to locate this servant*
room Miss Gernat opened the door
leading to the elevator, mistaking it
for tho door of the room. She said
she had been in the house only a
month and was not familiar with it. j
Mrs. Gibson said she had always in -1
structed the servants to close and j
lock the elevator door, and that Miss]
Gernat failed to act with due care.!
Mrs. Gibson also said she paid $2,600!
