A Jewish 'Edison' Bell Telephone stock is one of the blue chips. If you've had a chunk of it in recent years, you must be pretty well off. The total capitalization of the company runs into astronomical figures. This is the story of a man who asked for about one- third of the total capital--and who really was entitled to it--although he never got it. A young boy, son of a father who knew his Talmud very well by all accounts, came to the United States around 1870 when Grant was President. His name was Emil Berliner. When he got to America, he added an E to Emil, making it Emile. He thought that this would Ameri- canize his name. He worked for a drygoods house, selling and later a a boolkeeper. Unlike his father, he didn't seem very much interested in the Talmud, but he used to sit around the library of Cooper Union reading scientific and engineering works. While working for the drygoods shop, he fixed up a little laboratory, where h 9 experimented. I-Ie wanted to be an inventor. Everybody knows Alexander Graham Bell invented the telephone. You've read about him and have seen mov- ing pictures about him. He was a great man. But the tele- phone Bell invented was not a very practical thing. It transmitted sound all right, it fairly reeked with sound, but you had to be very alert, to make out what the words were. Bell had made a good transmitter, but the receiver was woefully inadequate. It was Emile Berliner, who sup- plied the missing link. A company was formed to exploit the Bell telephone. Berliner wrote them about his invention. A study was made of it and it was agreed, that the Berliner invention was just the thing needed to make the telephone a feasible thing. "How much do you want for it?', Berliner was asked. He asked for something like $4,000. "How can we give you that much?" was the answer. The total capital of the company, he was told, was only $12,000. Berliner took less. This was not Berliner's only invention. He was a Jew- ish Edison. Like Edison, he too invented a talking machine. In fact, it appears that the phonograph we use is more his invention than Edison's. The Edison record was of the cylindrical type, long discarded. The round flat disc was Berliner's invention. The microphone used in radio broadcasting is also Ber- liner's invention. Frederick Wm. Wile who wrote Ber- lJner's biography regarded that as his greatest invention. --Frederick & Nelson Photo MRS.

"If this man is 'sick'," says the Sun, "then a few more of us should be lucky enough to contract his ailment."
