Telluric Current to Open Vast Realm, Say# Scientist. IT HAS UNCANNY FORCE Harnessing of Earth's Elements Now in Bounds of ? Possibility. By F. A. WRAY. ? International New* Service. LONDON, Feb. 25.?An invention that will revolutionize the world! This is the claim of a younsc, almost unknown, Italian scientist, Professor L. V. Rota, who claims to have discovered the secret of telluric currents. "My invention," states the professor, "can cause battleships, submarines, aeroplanes and (runs to crumble to dust at any moment that any government gives the order to move them. Speed I'p Travel. "It can be harnessed up for the ?ervice of man and can immensely speed up travel, transport and communication, whether by land, water or air. It can cheapen-*very sort of manufacture and enhance every domestic and social immunity. "For instance, a cargo of mails or goods could be sent across the Atlantic through the upper air, without a human being aboard the craft, at a speed of ten to 400 miles an hour. The vessel would rise vertically the prescribed height, travel horizontally in a predetermined direction and drop gently and punctually upon tis dstinatlon. "Travel Any Distance." "Wireless messages, despatched from no costly or elaborate stations, would travel to any distance free from all danger of dissipation or confusion and with absolute privacy as between sender and receiver. "The nature of all mineral and oil deposits in any part of the world and their depth and volume will be accurately determined without so much as sinking a shaft. "Currents rushing through the air will provide the householder wltn cheaper, safer and more brilliant lighting than he has ever ventured to desire. "A new power for every Industry will first make coal, steam, oil and electricity more efficient and afterward will dispense with them altogether. "When our company Is formed? within eighteen months ? we will give spectacular demonstrations that all these things?and more?can be accomplished." Currents Long Suspected. The existence of these currents, which emanate from the earth (hence their name) have been suspected by other scientists. Lord Kelv.n before his death declared their reality. Professor Rota claims to be the first to discover and record them. They may also be described as "molecular force," and they must not be confused, says the professor, With Ampere's thermo-electric currents or with Foucault currents. It is the study of thse telluric currents, in their nature, intensity and direction, that is believed to open up such possibilities of tremendous Importance for the future of humanity. Professor Rota has recently given a preliminary demonstration at Marseilles. With a cigar-shaped apparatus, seventeen feet long, thirty Inches In diameter and weighing 200 pounds, he convinced a number of press correspondents that this apparatus could remain suspended motionless In the air for twenty-four hours, carrying a considerable we.ght, and be propelled or stopped without the use of any mechanical motor. be ?il hi sii th an lot to to th ra Ti al P< ar Fair Girls with Bare Ears Come Into Vogue Now F?
