Today it is regarded as one of France's most val uable possessions. The French capital, because of the Eiffel tower, has be come the wireless center of the world. Underneath the Champ de Mars, in I which the tower standi: a val snhtor. ranean wireless plant has been con structed. Its presence Is scarcely su pected by the passer-by, for its on entrance is little more than a trap door in the ground, partly concealed by a clump of trees. But should he attempt to approach too near the lit tle iron staircase leading underground, be will find his way barred by soldiers. Below ground,- amid a maze of pass ages, gigantic machines and a con tinual crackling 'and flashing of the wireless, a corps of military engineers and electrical experts are working day and night to perfect instruments on the accuracy of whose messages In wartime may depend France's victory or defeat and on which also will de pend the adequate co-operation of the allied army of Russia. It was in Ms laboratory here that Prof. Henri Abra ham, of the Sorbonne, talked today of what his work as a member of the French wireless mission sent by the government to Washington, will be. Professor Abraham will not join his colleagues until late in October. ; '"During our work at Arlington last spring," said he, "we succeeded in co operation with our American asso ciates in establishing the relative time of Washington and Paris within the tenth of a second. Since then we have been able to improve greatly the receiving and recording of wireless messages. We expect now to estab lish the time of Washington to within the hundredth of a second, and as a part of this result the longitude of Washington as related to Paris. France' will later send missions to the other principal nations with the object of establishing a similar accuracy in the relative times. Once this work is accomplished, the world will receive time signals from tbe Eiffel tower and will be able to register them to with in the hundreds of a second.-' "This effort for accuracy to within the hundredth of a second has required tremendous improvement In the ports, the, rumor connecting tiie re-jin a thinly populated country, where ported intention of the government the telephone was scarcely known, variously with an ; expedition against j Alter be war scare was over there China and to hold in reserve in case j was no further use lor these tele of war, with America.
