From the Tacoma News Tribune, from April 11, 1953
Just what form the future telephone will take is, of course, pure speculation. Here is my prophecy:
In its final development, the telephone will be carried about by the individual, perhaps as we carry a watch today. It probably will require no dial or equivalent, and I think the users will be able to see each other, if they want, as they talk. Who knows but what it may actually translate from one language to another?
“Your heart was warm and happy
With the lilt of Irish laughter
Every day and in every way
Now forever and ever after."
