> Which high society?
     Stylish people with money.  cf any biography.
     Monied people can provide support.
     (The comment that the press accounts as to Tesla's
     Social Life may be a tad 'selective' is well made..)

>>building the true Tesla coil which employs 3 coils.  So, who built the
>> first big Magnifier?
     Nikola Tesla?
     I'm thinking Bob Gulka(sp?): Wendover coil?

> What is the 3rd coil for?
     cf the Colorado Springs Notes.
     I'm assuming the extra coild described therein is what
     is meant.

>  Channeling/ guiding/ aiming the electrons?
