Thin Line


Prominent in the foreground is the hammer, the head of which rests on the palm of Watson's upturned left hand. From off to the side, young Watson says, ''I assume there's another unit. Where is it?'' Horrified by Watson's previous assault on his invention, Bell cannot speak. Still, perhaps out of shock, Bell gives away the location of his second prototype telephone by pointing out its direction with his thumb. In a small room just off the main laboratory, Watson finds the second prototype of Bell's communication device. Without so much as a how-do-you-do, Watson performs his all-American method of fine-tuning. THWACK!
Holding the receiver to his ear, Watson speaks into the mouthpiece of Bell's telephone. ''Hello, my name is Thomas A. Watson. I'm interested in a position as an inventor's assistant. I have five years of experience with tin-can-and-taut-string communication systems...'' Bell is holding to his ear the receiver of the phone on his desk. He listens as Watson's voice is re-created by the receiver. ''When may I come in for an interview?'' Watson asks. An astonished Bell thinks, ''EUREKA!''
An excited and joyful Bell yells his reply into the mouthpiece of his own prototype phone, ''Come here, Watson. I need you!''
