Washington, Jul SI. An Ingen
ious American must again be (Wen
credit for .another revolutionary In
vention, this time one which is cal
culated to upset the whole, theory
of artillery battles...
The new invention, the name of
which must be kept secret for mili
tary reasons, is based upon an in
vention perfected by the United
States bureau of standards, the dec
remeter, sa Instrument which is used
to tell' the location of any noise pro
ducing body by the decrement of
the air waves' produced.
By means of the new invention,
which is now In actual use on the
French front. It is possible to tell
the exact location of a German can
non, even when It cannot be seen or
heard. It is possible to Judge, even
at a distance of eight miles, so ac
curately the position of an enemy
gun that a shell can be placed with
in (0 feet of the cannon aimed at
The instrument now In use Is set
p at a certain point on the French
Ilr. and the actual distance to the
enemy cannon Is Judged by the de
creasing air waves. From another
Instrument at another point In the
French line a similar reading Is
given so that with the two Instru
ments and ths Oerman cannon a
triangle Is formed. By determining
the exact distance from the two In
struments to the German cannon, its
position can be found. A shell Is
fired from a French cannon and the
position at which it strikes eaa again
be determined by use of the new Am
erican Instrument. If the aim Is In
accurate, it can be corrected until the
Oerman cannon Is destroyed.
, This Instrument is so revolution
ary in Its practical application that
when it Is placed Into use along ths
entire western front, officials say,
the use of aeroplanes as locators of
enemy artillery will he done away
with.
