Electrical Experimenter (06:02) June 1918

Hugo Gernsback, editor

"People often receive an electric shock when they least expect it and sometimes the shock may be of sufficient magnitude to prove fatal. It is safe to assume that in many instances, the real cause of a person receiving a fatal or dangerous shock is due to either ignorance of electrical matters or to disregarding the generally known rules covering electrical apparatus and appurtenances."
This is the June 1918 issue of Electrical Experimenter. The cover story is “Electro-Magnetic Brakes Stop Aeroplanes.” Additional stories include the conclusion of last month’s “Television and the Telephot” article about a mechanical type of television’ “The Dynatron, A Negative-Resistance Vacuum Tube;” new motion pictures with sound; building an electric player piano; and how to avoid shocks.
