George Francis [...] who regarded himself as a sort of human radio capable of receiving and reproducing 'thought waves,' died at his home today. In a book, Man, the Human Radio and Key to Knowledge, he contended man is like a radio set except that his 12,000,000,000 brain cells are not yet attuned to the thought waves of others."
