Machine Speaks Like Man, Makes Noise io Order PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 9.--Bell Telephone Laboratories today invited science to find practical uses for a machine called the vodor, which speaks like a human, grunts like a pig, or makes any noise to order. It resembles an old-fashioned organ, with a keyboard and foot peda! on which an operator mixes two basic sounds, a buzzing and a hissing, and produces almost any desired effects including conversations in any language and in male, female or a child's voice. It was displayed for the first time before a group of scientists at Franklin Institute. O. E. Buckley, vice- president of the laboratories where it was made, said it was "a stun; outgrowth of a very serious line of research." Dr. Frank B. Jcwett president of the laboratories, said the only practical use that suggested itself so far was that if everybody lost their voices, people could stil' communicate by punching keys on such machines. In addition to the keyboard, there is a box containing vacuum tubes anc amplifiers, and attached to it are louc speakers, the number depending upon the size of the hall where it Is used There are '.1 white keys, 10 of which manipulate electrical filters and produce the desired rate of vibration, and, the other governing the 'volume. Three black keys produce consonant sounds. The basic hiss is produced by the bombardment of electrons in one of the vacuum tubes. The buzz is produced in another tube, or electrical oscillator. These sounds, Buckley explained, correspond to the two kinds of sounds in speech. One is made by forcing the breath past tongue, teeth anc lips, reinforced by the resonances of the mouth cavity. Thus are made such sounds as "s," "th" and "f," and whispers. The voder operator punches the keys to produce these and such "stop consonant" sounds as "d," "k" and "h." The other speech sound includes the vowels and the voder pedal is used for changing the pitch of the buzz creating It, and also for giving the speech inflections, The operator requires at least six months training and the one who demonstrated it yesterday, Mrs. Helen Harper of Jamaica, N. Y., one of 24 telephone operators trained, still practices three or four hours a day.

Except for the keys, it was made with apparatus used in ordinary telephone service. An operator adept enough could make the % voder sing. The llrst demonstration began wilii imitations of the lowing of cattle, bleating of sheep, grunting of pigs. Then the vowel "e" was made, followed by the consonant sound "ch." Put together they formed the word "each." Other words followed, then whole sentences The most difficult sounds for voder are "1" and "r," the transition,! sounds. The word "bull" is very difficult. An operator has }o puncl as many as five keys at once, but two operators, the demonstrators said could sit at different keyboards anc carry on an extended conveisation.
