'HELLO I" PARIS.
Uniting Franc and America by Wire
"Hello, Paris! This is New York."
To start a conversation like this
across the universe seems like an
achievement beyond the dream of a
Jules Verne or the imaginative picture
of a Bellamy Storer, yet in the busiest
city of the world, New York, such an
experiment will take place shortly,
with every assurance of success. On
this occasion, when science announces
its triumph to the world, society of the
nations will offer its congratulations in
a unique and unrivaled n anier, and
will feature on its social calendar a
luncheon at which Frederick Townsend
Martin will preside, that for interest
and charm will make all past society
events seem common p' ace, when the
first wireless luncheon will take place
in the salon of the Hotel Plaza.
While this luncheon is being served
a voice will speak uniting two of the
greatest nations of history. It will be
the voice of America's most prominent
society man reading a message of Pres
ident Taft to President Fallieres of
France. It will be transmitted to Mrs.
Nora B latch De Forest in the Metropol
itan tower, the talented pioneer of her
sex in this field and foremost woman
civil engineer in the world, who will
receive this message from the Plaza and
send it over a radio wireless telephone
at the rate of 186,000 miles a second,
to a fair daughter of France in the
The salon will be decorated to re
semble a forest. Trees will be in full
bloom and birds singing from their
branches. Presiding at this table will
be Mr. Frederick Townsend Martin
who will be the guest of the American
Wireless association of which Dr. De
Forest is president. . The guests will
be leading society people and scientific
men of note. Mons. Etienne Lianel,
consul general of France, representing
the French government and one of its
guests of honor, has said that if wire
less telephony is brought to a state of
perfection it will become a political
and diplomatic time saver.
The table will represent the Atlantic
ocean. At one end will be the Metro
politan tower, architecturally raised in
candy; at the other end will be the
Eiffel tower. On this miniature ocean
will be small ships of various nations
Bailing back and forth. The shore
landings of both France and America
will be appropriately represented.
The menus will be small telephone
directories, and the dishes will be list
ed as telephone numbers. The place
cards will be wireless messages Bent
from the Ritz Carleton in France to
the guests assembled at the Plaza in
America. These messages will be re
ceived through wireless table phones
permitting the guests at both tables to
converse with each other, although
separated by half a world.
The waiters will be summoned by
wireless telephone and at the end car
riages will be called by this means.
The favors will be small radio spark
less wireless telephone outfits of very
light weight and will be utilized by the
guests in the ceremonies attending the
luncheon and carried away to commem
orate the latest gigantic feat of mod
It will take just one fortieth of a
second for the message to travel across
the Atlantic and about one-seventh of
a second to go around the world. Fol
lowing this, mutual toasts will be
given by the guests of this wireless
luncheon who will be separated by an
ocean, yet able to converse as if face
The value of this marvelous scien
tific and mechanical feat, can hardly be
estimated, and will stand among the
first half dozen scientific wonders of
all time. Its effect upon the trans
mission of commercial business will be
revolutionary, and will mean that we
can communicate with Europe at the
cost now prevailing for a domestic tel
egram. The great station in the Metropoli
tan tower is now being rushed to a
stage of completion. This will be ab
solutely the finest wireless station in
the world. Its cost is not comparable
to that of other equipments, as the sta
tion comprises all Sorts of experiment;
ing apparatus. It is thought that
$300,000 would not cover the outlay if
a structure as high as tbe Metropolitan
tower had to be erected especially for
th work. As long as the tower has
already been constructed, the cost, out
side of the apparatus, will be neglig
ible. The" workings of the. radio wireless
peone are wonderfully simple when
tbe complex problems involved and
overcome in its creation are consid
ered. In telephoning, the operator talks
into tbe mouthpiece exactly as with
the wire telephone and listens for a
reply through a head phone instead of
a receiver. In order to get into com
munication with a wireless telephone
station, it becomes necessary to get
tbe instrument to the known tune of
the other station and then press the
buzzer key which calls the person to
the phone at the other end. The con
versation is then carried on as if the
two operators were face to face.
The mechanical principles upon
which the radio wireless telephone de
pend are simple enough, although there
is a great difference of opinion upon
the actual explanation of the phenome
non of wireless telephony. Speech is
the forming of very rapid and e very
varying serUs of vibrations in the air,
and their measurement by the nerves
of the ear. Owing to the resistance of
the atmosphere, these vibrations grow
weaker and at last disappear as we get
fart Car from tbe source of disturbance.
Telephony is the art of translating
these vibrations into vibrations of ether
whose lesser resistance enables them
to be carried to great distances fcr the
translation into air vibrations afrnin,
as only the air vibrations can be meas
ured by the ear. In the wire! tele-

phone the air waves are translated into
the vibrations of an electrical discharge
which oscillates the ether.
The ether waves, sent out by trans

modified by the human voice, are
changed back at the receiving station
into Buch form as to effect the receiver
and cause the exact air vibrations
which were made to modulate the
transmitting current, and therefore,

Dr. DeForest bases his claims for
success on his past experiments with
the wireless telephone at the sugges
tion of Admiral Evans, who conducted
the experiments on board his flagship,
the Connecticut, and another vessel.
Every battleship, cruiser or torpedo
boat of tbe great Pacific fleet was
equipped with radio wireless tele
phones before setting out on the mem
orable cruise. These instruments were
given a thorough .trial in inter-ship
communication and in conversation
with several wireless stations cn the
In the meantime, the young inventor
has not been content to rest on the
laurels obtained from his successful
work in the navy and has carried on
many experiments, both at home and
abroad. In May, 1908, from the Eiffel
tower, wireless messages were sent by
the radio telephone to every wireless
station in France. A warship off
Marseilles, nearly 600 miles away,
heard the transmitted messages just as
distinctly as did the stations near
Paris. While doing this, Dr. DeForest
had equipped several of the vessels of
the Italian navy and the instruments
met with such decided success that an
arrangement has been practically con
cluded for the equipment of the entire

She was the first and only woman to
