The Sunday New York American
publishes the following dispatch from
The part American ingenuity play
ed in winning the war is disclosed in
a history of the Naval Consulting
Board of tho United States made pub
lic by Secretary Daniels today.
The volume reveals achievements
which if projected a decade ago prob
ably would have been ridiculed as
"visionary." Chief among these was
rv device by which tho launching of u
torpedo could bo heard on shipboard
4000 yards away or further than a
torpedo "can be effectively launched
from a submarine.
This invention was but one of a
score or more contributed by Thos.
A. Edison, president of tho board.
Mr. Edison appears to have been the
moving spirit of tho board. Forsaking
his laboratories at tho outbreak of
the war ho practically became a naval
officer. Ho spent most of his time in
tho Navy department offices here and
took long deep sea cruises that he
might be in closer touch with the
problems to bo solved.,
His Listening Device
Because of the German submarine
menace ship protection claimed the
most attention of the board. To this
problem Mr. Edison devoted his tra
ditional twenty-hour working days and
after overcoming many obstacles final
ly perfected his listening device.
This contrivance was in tho form of
an outrigger suspended from the bow
sprit of a vessel and containing an
immense phonograph diaphragm. By
means of compensator the noise of
the vessel's engines was obliterated,
thus making it possible for the device
to work perfectly even when the ship
was plowing nt full speed through the
" With this device boats moving sev
enteen hundred yaids away could bo
readily heard while tho vessel was go
ing full speed. A submarine bell five
and one-half miles away could also
be heard while a big storm was in
progress and the boat also proceeding
at full speed.
"Mr. Edison followed this invention
with a device for the quick turning of
u vessel whenever the detector indi
cated that a torpedo was coming in
the vessel's direction. He did this
by means of strong conical canvas
bags. A heavy rope was attached to
the mouth of tho bag and a light
rope in a slip knot to the tapering
The "Drag" for Quick Vcpring
When cast into tho sea' tho moutn
opened, filling the bag with water and
thus acting as a drag. By pulling
the lighter rope tho small end of tho
bag was opened. This let the water
out, instantly relieving the lesistance.
Four of these bags cast from tho side
of a GOOO-ton vessel laden w'ith 4000
tons of coal caused it to turn ninety
degrees from its course in two min
utes with an advance of only 200 feet.
Night sailing of ships next attracted
his attention. By working day and
night over the records of submarine
sinkings he discovered that not more
than six per cent of the sinkings took
place at night.
Mr. Edison commenced to woik out
his plans for tho ships to sail in and
out of the danger zone at night; to
forsake tho old standard lines of trav
el as much as possible; to anchor
through the day in comparatively shal
low waters and harbors where sub
marines could not approach them,
steaming only at night to other porti
of anchorage on their way to their
Mr. Edison prepard a new set of
strategic maps on which he charted

anchorage for a long distance in shore

waters where submarines could not
Other war time inventions by Mr.
Edison wcic a cartridge for taking
soundings; u convoy light visible to
all vessels in the convoy but invisiblo
from the decks of a submarine; an
undor-wnter searchlight capable cf
throwing rays 200 feet; a projectile
that would enter the water from an
angle instead of richochcting; a stab
ilizer for submerged submarines; and
a time fuse to cause shrapnel to burst
only six feet above the ground.
He dei.scd a mask to piotrct ob
servers on the tops of ma ts fiom
smokestack gas, a turbine head for
projectiles which enabled tho latter to
be fired fiom smooth boro guns and
still have lotation and accuracy; drew
up plans for mining Zecbrugge har
bor, and developed a method by which
communicating signals hclvoen war
ships could bo sent by means of mir
rors. Prevented Hinldngs
Mr. Edison devoted n great deal of
thought to various plans for prevent
ing sinkings and he suggested a num
bor of schemes to this end. One of
theso was a proposition to furnish
merchant ships with a type of spec
ially designed threc'-inch shells filled
with an oleum smoke producing com1

Plan is most helpful. You ought to come in
right away and find out what it can do for you.
In the first place, it will put a New Edison beside

In the second place, it will stretch your Christmas

The Budget Plan treats the New Edison as"an
essential of life, such as a home, and arranges
payments on the sound "time" principle. It com-'

Tho problem of e!".::uishing fires
in coal bunkers ho solved with a smull
stream 6f silicate of toda played on a
coal or wood fire. Tho moment the
silicate strikes the incandescent body
tho small quantity of water in the sil
icate evaporates and the glowing body
becomes coated with a glassy surface
excluding the oxygen and extinguish
ing tho fire.
Tho study of a direction finder for
hostile aii planes was undertakcnf to
determine the direction of a plane be
fore it was visible by determining the
direction of the source of tho sound
given off by its engines. This s.
how it was done:
Two horns at a fixed angle to one
another conveyed the sound to oppos
ite sides of the same diaphragm and
swung tho horn system, both in hori
zontal and vertical planes, until there
was no movement of tho diaphragm,
because the sounds conveyed by both
horns were of equal valuo and there
fore neutralized one another.
It was found very difficult to get
zero readings but with some training
on the 'part of the observer the direct
Ion could be determined with consider
