Morse code isn't binary. It's a time-based code of dot and dash (short and long) signals. Coin flips are (generally, ignoring landing on the edge) binary, head or tails. There is no way to convert between the two without first converting to a meaningful set of information.

ASCII wasn't around in the 30s, but there was a binary code around that was the precursor to it. I can't for the life of me remember what it was called.
