WAVE-MAKING MACHINE. [Newspaper Article] — Quambatook Times — 23 September 1914

' WAVE-MAKING MACHINE. A machine lias been invented which will make, to your liking, any one oi a half-dozen or moro different kinds of waves—ocean .'waves, long rolling billows, short choppy waves, and, among others, the white-cap variety. It is possiblo to have a roal Jlilforil surl just by switching on an electric motor, which sots four plungors in motion. These plungers work up ami down in tho water, and tho different ways the plungors aro worked make the different kinds of waves. For in stance, if long rolling billows aro de sired, tho plungers aro worked in uni son. If a short choppy sea is want ed, two plungers are worked up mO two down—this combination causes i..-e waves to broak into white-caps, 'l'ht different combinations of tho plungers result in tho different kinds'of waves.
