THOS. EDISON INTERVIEWED
ON TALKING TO DEAD
Saya People Steep and Eat Too Much
, For Their Own Good

WEST ORANGE, N. J., Feb. 10.
"Do you think it possible that you
may devise any mechanism through
which; when you have left this life
you may hope to communicate with
us?" ' v
Thomas A. Eidson ' ,the wonder
wizard, who will-be 74 on February
11, and is as hale anf hearty as a man
of arty and constantly at work upon
being asked the above question, gave
the Internationa News Service Inter
viewer, this answer:
"If my theory is correct that the
machine called man is only a mass of
dead, matter and that the real life
is in the millions of individual units
which navigate this machine, and if
on the destruction of the machine
those individual, units keep together
including those which have charge of
the memory, (which is our personal
ity) then I think it is possible to
devise apparatus to receive commu
nications if they desire to make them.
It will be very difficult as each
individual as to size-is beyond the
limit of our present 'microscopes."
"When I was a little boy," said
Eidson, "persistently trying to find
out how the telegraph worked and
why, the best explanation I ever got
was from an old Scotch line repairer
who said that if you had a dog like
dachschund long enough to reach
from Edinburgh to London, if you
pulled his tail in Eidengurgh he would
bark in London. I could understand
that," said' Eidson,"but it was hard
to get at what it was that went
through the dog or over the wire."
Eidson is not unmindful of diffi
culties to'be overcome, even ordinar-
ly, after successful invention of ap
paratus. The speaking motion picture
awaits only operators of sufficient
skill. Before the electric light could !
be used commercially thousands of
men had to be technically trained.
Eidson recalls that when he was tele
graph operator in Boston and invent
ed a duplex system that could carry
two messages over the same wire a
the same time, he spent $800 of bor
rowed money to establish a circuit
to Rochester but' had to give 4 up
because in spite of his minut in
structions nobody could operate the
other end. v '
I asked Eidson what the most vital
problem the world has to solve, is.
He said: "Generally, labor and capitl

to the possibility of recording and re
producing the human voice. It actu
ally did so on the fjrst test and my
astonishment was profound." he ans-
"What is education?" I asked him.
Eidson had no regular schooling
to speak of, and has attained by meth
odf all his own the vast store of var
ie', tevtaJ-Kige through which he has
worked his marvels.-
"The main essential," Eidson ans
wered, "is to have teachers who can
explain the reason, for and working
of things by analogy with things
which the scholar already is familiar
with instead of words of which the
scholar does not know the meaning.
Personality, he puts to the fore,

the heart of the answer. His own
achievements have been dependent
not only upon his own intelligence
ad methods but upon apt cooperation
of his associates and employees, of
whom in his various industries there
are now' about a million,' many thou.
sands of whom are' highly trained;
and any good method is futile with
out good personality to work it.
"Right education would train chil
dren to right tendencies," Mr. Edi
son said, talking in his rapid, vigor
ous, epigrammatic way. "People go
the direction in which they are in
clined. They do what they want to do.
They will know what .they want to
know. They generally get what they
want and will become what they at
bottom want to become. For good
achievement and for good health too,"
children and a lot of grown up peo
ple ought to be trained to restraint

"People will not only do what they
like to do; they over do it 100 per
cent Most people over eat 100 per
cent because they like it., That extra
100 per oent and over sleep 100 per
cent because they like it. That extra
100 per cent taakes them unhealthy
and inefficient. The person who
sleeps eight or ten hours a night is
never fully awake they have only
different degree of doze through the
24 hours. Most people seem to think
they must eat until they are' no lon
ger hungry. Most of their energy is
taken up in digesting what they eat.
I see what people eat; and for myself
half-oa miirh is enonirh."
"For myself I never found need, of ,
more than four or five haurs sleep.
in the 24. I never dream. It's real
sleep. When by chance I have taken
more I wake dull and indolent. Wej
are always hearing people talking I
about 'loss of sleep' as a calamity.:
They better call it loss of time, vital-
ity an J opportunities. Just to satisfy
my curiousity I have gone through,

nal and could not find a single case
reported of anybody ever being hurt
by loss of sleep. Insomtna Js different
