Misses PARRISH Pressing Dry From A Faint Blue Glow To Modern Miracles FDISON saw it first a mere shadow of blue light streaking across the terminals inside an imperfect electric lamp. This "leak" of electric current, an obstacle to lamp perfection, was soon banished by removing more air from the bulbs. But the ghostly light, and its mysterious disappearance in a high vacuum remained unexplained for years. Then J. J. Thomson established the electron theory on the transmission of electricity in a partial vacuum and the blue light was understood. In a very high vacuum, however, the light and apparently the currents that caused it disappeared. One day, however, a scientist in the Research Laboratories of the General Electric Company proved that a current could be made to pass through the highest possible vacuum, and could be varied according to fixed laws. But the phantom light had vanished. Here was a new and definite phenomenon a basis for further re- search. Immediately, scientists began a series of experiments with far reachtube, known as the Coolidge ing practical results. A new type of y tube, soon gave a great impetus to the art of surgery. The Kenotron and Pliotron, followed in quick succession by the Dynatron and Magnetron, made possible long distance radio telephony and revolutionized radio telegraphy. And the usefulness of the "tron" family has only X-ra- begun. The troublesome little blue glow was banished nearly forty years ago. But for scientific research, it would have been forgotten. Yet there is hardly a man, woman or child in the country today whose life has not been benefited, directly or indirectly, by the results of the scientific investigations that followed. Thus it is that persistent organized research gives man new tools, makes available forces that otherwise might remain unknown for centuries. GeneralElectric Company General Ottce Schenectady, N. Y.
