First Floor. r ··""-- Such is Opinion of William Marconi, the Wireless Inventor. 'Rome, Aug. 10. -- (Correspondence of the Associated Press). -- No notable scientific discoveries or inventions are growing out of the great war, in the opinion of William Marconi, the wirelesa te,Y$itpr.,' J n ftn interview with a cor- of the Associated Press he war inventions, on the wholj there ha\o been no great one 1 ' that occur to me Most of thorn ha\c been minor ones, or applications of knowledge pro- ·uou0y at our disposal, as in the case of poison gases, if llie«e may be named at all In my own field there hai been some advance in practical wireless by which we are now able to direct the artillery fire of a ship by signals from an aeroplane, which has been made possible largely through the big improvements in aircraft. "The big lesson in Europe has been one of organiration, of the physical handling of big material problems by the armies. I doubt if anyone before t%Is war ever reali/ed the meaning and value of railroad transpoi tation on 8 large scale, as it is practiced in the United States. Europe, too, has learned how to do big industrial jobs overnight, to as semble raw materials and turn oijt needed factory products. ,"I refuse to play the prophet role, io I Would rather not say how many ol ;hese war products will be of use to us w hpn peace comes " Since the beginning of the war Mr Maiconi has had unusual opportunities for observing the parctical side of the war, having early put his scientific knowledge at the service of his country As a senator of the kingdom he has visited England, Belgium, France and other countries, and introduced industrial ana shipping reforms. In his capacity as military officer he has come into close relation with army and na\y and giveri the benefit of his science and business organization knowledge to munition factories. He has also perfected the army and na\y wireless systems and is at present working on a signal system which, it i"» expected, will render far more difficult submarine warfare through the readier location and signaling of the presence of such craft. The details ot this he wag unable to furnish because of it* immediate military importance. 'Let me eay," said Mr. Marconi "that one of the personal inconveniences of :his war is that I cannot continue my visits to the United States. I began my visits in 1899, when your people so warmly welcomed and helped me. Since then I have been there exactly forty times, which is perhaps a record." Incidentally, the inventor referred to the position of the United States. "1 don't think the United States should ever fear any fatal, disastrous Invasion," he said. "Her seas protect her too well. She is too mighty a country in population arfd force to be ever conquered I doubt if, with reasonable precaution, even her coasts could be injured or landed upon. The experience of this war has shown how easy it is to protect a coast by submarines, even when the invader is a near neighbor. It is a rule thai will work both ways. The United States would have vast difficulties in landing forces on foreign territory, say that of Europe. Neither England nor Germany has been able to get at each other, though relatively close." As to the prospects of peace in Eu- ·ope Mr Marconi "aid: "There nre many people here who believe the war, ;hat is actual hostilities, w i l l be nei by winter. Of course, this will not mean disbanding the armies. Unless the Oer- mans have managed to fool the world on their population statistics, they must giie in for lack of men and food to feed their people. Energy Is Being Wasted. "To rne the saddest fact about this war is that so much energy has been used up which might h3ve gone to a better purpose. I fear, too, as must every thinking man in Europe, that this may not be Europe's last great war during this half century. It may have to be fought all over again within another thirty years, unless there is some way found of preventing future wars, of settling disputed interests otherwise. "I do not think Italy will have any gerious trouble when the war is over. While she has suffered severely because of freight rates, she has surprised all of her European neighbors with her economic resistance and with the products of her factoiics She furnished Russia w i t h hundreds of thousands of rifles und millions of cartridges recently, and she is sending other war material to France She is also manufacturing most of her own big guns, her heavy cannon, her machine guns * "Despite the fact that we occupy the soil of ancient Rome, v e are a new country politically and commercially and recent events have proved, our mettle. I doubt if any country is better organised from an engineering and transportation point of view than ours. When the war is over Italy will go to work to build a larger merchant marine and she will develop her water power for more and cheaper electricity." Concluding, the inventor pointed out that this is the first great war in which women have been BO generally soared. "In earlv times we had sometimes entire countiies where men, women any children were destroyed by famines and epidemics in war times. In our own davs the progress of science, of hygiene, has increased population and made impossible these old methods of destruction. War still remains, as the present conflict proves, and as a moie teirible means of destruction than in the past, with the striking difference, Thowever, that it destroys men and not the women " DELPHIA CELEBRATES. Delphi, Ind.. Aug. 11.--The Carrol county centennial celebration is proving of unusual interest because of the rivalry among the various groups of townships which have charge of various events during the three days. Large crowds are attending the celebration The program includes addresses and en- tertajnmcnt features. .»t.i»m.3«.... n ·fi^*,tt tr-rrfiH, h vjj-v ^' i p^H h L M !v ir *f oTM"*
