Electrical Experimenter (05:11) March 1918

Hugo Gernsback, editor

"Literally to the ends of the earth President Wilson's recent "Peace-terms" address was sped by cable, telegraph and radio as soon as he began it. ... Every one who had anything to do with the handling of the speech was kept under lock and key or under naval guard. Advance information would have been almost priceless to Wall Street speculators. At thirty minutes past noon the word came "Release President's speech," and the cable and telegraph operators started clicking it off to the four quarters of the globe."
This issue of Electrical Experimenter is from March 1918. The feature story is “How U-Boats Send Radio 1,000 Miles.” Also in this issue is Part 1 (of 2) of the early science fiction story “At War With the Invisible,” whether electricity can overcome gravity, and how President Wilson’s peace speech was broadcast around the world.
