•junior Editor Quiz orv THOMAS EDISON Daily Times Herald Features . . . Comics OUT OUR WAY ly NIG COCHRAN OUR BOARDING H0USI with MAJOR H00PLI Monday, November 23, 1970 Coins Answer to Previous Puzzle Is® QUESTION: What other things did Thomas Edison invent beside the electric light? ANSWER: It may be that Thomas Alva Edison did more than any other human being to make possible our modern world of comforts and conveniences. Not only did he work out useful ideas of his own, but he improved discoveries made by others. An example is the moving picture (upper left). The principle had been found, but Edison invented projectors and other devices which helped to make the movies what they are today. Perhaps his most useful invention was the electric light. Nothing but the most patient effort enabled him to find out how to keep the fragile filament glowing inside a sealed glass bulb. Think of what this invention has meant to millions and millions of people. The invention which was Edison's personal favorite was the phonograph (we illustrate a modern machine, which though different in appearance from Edison's original one, uses some of the same principles). Edison liked the thought of bringing music and fun to many people. In all, he took out patents on 1,100 inventions. Because he invented the electric light in Menlo Park, N. J., he was often called, "the Wizard of Menlo Park." (Colleen Ryan of Elizabeth, N. J., wins a prize for this question.
