ARTHUR J. BURKS
STRANGE PATTERNS APPEARING ON HIS OSCILLOGRAPH REVEAL TO JAY BARD A BRAND NEW WORLD IN "THE OSCILIANS"!
Jay Bard is interested in electronics and experiments with a home-made oscillograph. He keeps it tuned-in to his radio so that the "shadows" of the voices of celebrities, speaking or singing over the air, appear on the oscillograph as wavering green graphs, which Bard has learned to read.
One day the "shadows" do not match the voices on the radio. The oscillating green lines of the graph develop a bulge, as if something were moving through them. Using magnets, Bard discovers that he can pull the green bulge entirely off the screen-and the "shadow" lines fly off his screen.
He soon discovers that he is somehow in contact with the intelligence responsible for the strange patterns on the oscillograph. He realizes that they are not the result of any human voices or sounds, but come from somewhere else!
