IDEALISM is to the American girl
a birthright, inherited from Ply
mouth, Lexington and Valley
Forge. The broader field of
activity now open to the girls of
this country has developed a desire
for the achievement of ideal careers
of many kinds, but deep down In her
heart the real ambition of every girl
is some day to be the mistress of her
own home. Many hours and days of
her youth are spent in dreams of the
idealism which shall characterize
that home.
Tlie highest pinnacle of idealism in
marriage and home-making Is ex
emplified in the life of Mrs. Warren
Harding. To read the stories of her
unselfish devotion to the welfare of 1
her husband and his interests, and
their life together, is to look into a
soul of noble womanhood that cannot
fail to inspire our girls of today to
strive toward the achievement of an
\ idealism in their own lives to which :
the.bereaved widow of a great man
has pointed the way. Having her
husband's happiness and success first ’
at heart, no task was too difficult, !
or any personal sacrifice too great. '
if it meant a step forward in the life
of idealism they were to share
together. i

Teaches Rifle Practice
At West Virginia Camp
MISS he:LON STOKES, one of Cen
tral High School's most popular
. June graduates, has been carrying on
file rifle shooting work in which she
had been so successful while at Cen
tral.
During her four years in the school
Miss Stokes was one of the faithful
followers of this sport and proved
to be one of the team's best workers.
She received her letter in rifle two
,successive years. 1922-23. and if was
under her leadership that the Central
High School Girls’ rifle team received
, the John Jacob Astor cup for the best :
girls’ team in the country.
As soon as the excitement of grad
uation had died down Miss Stokes de
cided to continue her rifle shooting
and was appointed instructor at
Camp Alleghany. Honcevcrte. W. Va.
After an interesting talk to the girls,
she found that out of the 135 girls
and councilors at the camp. 104 had
signed up for rifle practice. This
shows how very much interested girls
have become in this recreation. Miss
Stokes Intends to enter the Camp
* Alleghany rifle team in the national
camp team matches, and expects that
It will have a fairly good chance for
success.
Os course, there are other interests
at Camp Alleghany, and one of the
best times Miss Stokes has had was
when she visited Camp Greenbrier,
the boys’ camp, of which her two
older brothers have charge. Miss
Stokes comes by her love of rifle
shooting quite naturally, as her
younger brother. Ralph Stokes, was a
member of the Cnited States rifle team
* that defeated Great Britain in the in
* ternatlonal match of 1921, and her
eldest brother, Walter R. Stokes, Is
tile champion rifle shot of the world.
Aside from her shooting, Miss
Stokes has left a tine scholastic
record behind her and was also a
member of the. schools’ senior council,
•in her return from camp Miss Stokes
expects to enter the national rifle
matches, which will be held at Camp
Perry, Ohio.
NAMES FOR GIRLS
s And WKat They Mean
BARBARA is the feminine form of the
Greek name meaning ’’stranger.” It
was adopted by the Romans and has
been given the additional varied mean
ing of “cruelty” or “ill-adapted splen
dor,” according to some philologists.
The flower for Barbara is a rather meek
little emblem for so blustering a name.
It is the dainty little starlike chick
weed that grows with the least possible
amount of encouragement in every gar
den. It is also called the American
starwort. Belligerent as is the general
sentiment connected with the name
Barbara, the motto for Barbara is
*■ "welcome.”
The name was originally spelled Bar
bary and some authorities claim that
the first Barbara was Barbary, a native
girl of Asia Minor, who had the repu
tation of being a wild and barbarous
person when she lived in Egypt.
One of the earliest Barbaras was St.
Barbara, a virgin martyr and canonized
in both the Greek and Roman Catholic
churches. Little definite information
about St. Barbara has boon brought to
light, but it is generally understood that
she was martyred at Nicomedia. or
vßithynla, about the end of the third
century. Both churches have her day
on December 4.
There are few names for girls hav
ing as many variations as Barbara. The
following are some of. them: Scotch,
Babie; English, Barbara, Babby and
Babs; French, Babette and Barbe; Ger
man, Barbel and Barbchen; Slavic, Va
vara: Illyrian. Vara; Russian. Varinka;
Hungargian. Borbola and Boria.
Because St. Barbara is generally be
lieved to have been carried to heaven
by angels, she has been adopted by the
flyers of France as the patron saint of
airships. Children have 4>een told she
has great influence over the skies, and
In Catholic countries they pray to her
during thunderstorms. European ar
tillerists have also adopted her as their
patron saint and she has been pictured
surrounded by cannon.
Barbara has not been a popular name
with royalty. Barbara Villiers, who was
created Lady Castlemalne and Duchess
of Cleveland, was a great favorite with
Charles II of England. She was the
mother of the Dukes of Cleveland, Graf
ton and Northumberland. She was an
imperious beauty of dazzling charms
and exceedingly scornful In her atti
tude toward others. The king saw to
it that she received funds, which made
her very wealthy even into her old age.
Barbara is the name of the little
slavey of Dickens’ "Old Curiosity
Shop,” and Lady Babbie is the young
• heroine of Sir James Barrie’s "Little
Julster.”
PRINT-SHOP work in the days ,
when Mr. Harding was struggling j
to make a success of a weekly paper !
was not a delectable occupation for a |
young Woman, but he needed a busi- !
ness manager and his wife under
took the job. Her undaunted faith
in face of discouragement, and her
cheerful determination to help to j
success the man whom she believed i
to possess the capabilities of great- I
ness, inspired a confidence in her •
judgment and ability that led to the
ideal partnership which has just
come to so tragic an end.
Few men think it worth while to
take their wives into their business
confidence. They acknowledge that
the girls they marry are gifted with
a certain something which they
choose to call intuition, but which the
girls themselves know to be just
* plain common sense. A girl who can
inspire the implicit confidence of
those with whom she comes in con
tact is indeed fortunate, for she has
in that one characteristic the basis
for just the same idealism which
lifted Warren O. Harding and his most
remarkable wife to the highest position
, the American republic has to offer.

| tain people whom she admires, and
1 whom she instinctively determines
; she will try to be like. It is the
j beginning of the march toward an
! ideal, and it is extremely important
that the ideal be worthy. Girls like
• ideals, and fortunately they cannot
j cultivate too many. But the highest
j ideal of all is that of true and noble
| womanhood. Many women in this
; and other lands have become shining
Tights In the world of affairs, always
because they have striven toward an
ideal. It is seldom, however, that a
woman becomes famous through the
simple idealism of domestic life. Not
every girl carl be the wife of a
President of the United States, but
the standard of idealism set by the
late President and his wife can be
j the guiding star of every home
making venture.
"IT! take your place.” was the code
of ethics of the Harding household,
for husband and wife went hand in
hand in all things concerning each
other. In any emergency this won
derful wife was ready to take the
place of her husband. Girls of today
will do well to emulate the woman
who mourns as her own the man
through whose loss the entire world
la now oereaved.
A great man could not but become
greater with the inspiration of an
ideal helpmate.

RADIO GOSSIP AND NEWsJ
Programs for radio broadcasting
rendered at WEAF’s studios are now
being sent out not only through that
station In New York city, but fre
quently through WCAP In Washington,
D. C., and WMAP at South Dartmouth,
Mass. WEAF is operated by the
American Telephone and Telegraph
Company in New York city and trans
mits on a wave length of 492 meters
(610 kilocycles); WCAP in Washing
ton, D. C., operated by the Chesapeake
and Potomac Telephone Company,
transmits on 469 meters (640 kilo
cycles), and WMAF, South Dartmouth,
Mass., the Hound Hills Radio Corpora
tion station, transmits on a wave
length of 360 meters (833 'kilocycles).
Broadcasting through three sta
tions on a regular schedule is only
one of the phases of the American
Telephone and Telegraph Company’s
Investigation of the possibilities of j
radio broadcasting. Its programs for
WEAF have been picked up from
points as distant as Chicago. St. Louis
and Kansas City and transmitted
by long-distance telephone lines to
New York city.
A special effort Is being made to de
termine the preference of the radio
audience with rgard to programs.
Every suggestion, criticism and expres
sion of approval is carefully tabulated
in statistics, which are used as a
guide in arranging the broadcasting
programs. The skill with which pro
grams Involving the use of many
musical instruments, such as the Cap
itol Theater, have been picked up I
and broadcast and the w ide variety i
of programs offered have given i
WEAF an enthusiastic radio follow- ,
ing.
Consequently, when Col. E. H. R. ■
Green decided to give New England 1
the highest grade of radio programs, i
he sought a. means of securing
WEAF’s programs for his own sta
tion. Arrangements were consum
mated to send these by special long- j
distance circuits to South Dartmouth ]
in order to operate the 300-watt West- j
ern Electric transmitter, which the I
colonel has erected on his estate.
New York Is the center of artistic
talent and has a greater variety of I
program matter available than any
point on the continent. It is possible
that New York will become the cen
ter for the gathering of radio pro
grams for broadcasting from stations
In distant cities which may be con
nected by wire telephone lines with
studios in New York. Already the
studios at WEAF are supplying a
third station, that of the Chesapeake
and Potomac Telephone Company In
Washington. *
The task of sending programs by
wire telephone Is somewhat more
complex than it appears to one un
familiar with the subject. A tele
phone line suitable for ordinary com
mercial speech is usually totally un
fit to handle the wide range of fre
quencies required by radio broad
casting. Furthermore, that which is
received at the terminus of the long
distance lines for radio purposes is 1
immensely amplified by a series of
vacuum tubes. As a result, the
slightest line noise is immensely am
plified and broadcast. For this rea
son special means arc necessary, re
quiring the use of extensive appa
ratus and the services of skilled en
gineers before a line is in condition
suitable for use in connection with
broadcasting.
To indicate tlie magnitude of the
task of preparing telephone lines so
that they may be used in oonectlon
with broadcasting is Indicated by the
fact that no less than sixty-five tel
ephone and radio engineers were re
quired to operate the telephone lines
and their connections with the radio
stations on the recent occasion when
a program rendered at Carnegie Hall ]
by the National Electric Light Asso- j
elation was broadcast simultaneous- I
ly by stations WEAF, WGY, KDKA
and KYW in New York City. Sche
nectady. Pittsburgh and Chicago, re
spectively,
j Many radio fans in this locality
I who are able to receive the three
stations now using WEAF’s pro
grams. have noted that the qualltv
of transmission from the stations
most distant from WEAF is just as
good as that heard from WEAF it
self
Vibrations Cause Interference.
When some sets are in operation a
ringing sound is heard in the phones
If the least jar affects the cabinet or
the table on which the set stands.
The ringing .continues for some time
after the table has been jarred. Such
a noise makes tuning impossible,
especially when the signals are faint. ,
These microphone noises, as they j
are called, are caused by the tubes
amplifying the mechanical vibrations,
and the elements of the tubes, chiefly'
the grid, are also set in vibration by
the jar. The practical way to elim
inate this ringing annoyance is to
cushion the tube socket and mount
ings on strips of sponge rubber or
light springs, so- the mechanical
shocks will be absorbed and not be
transmitted to the tube. Heavy fell
is sometimes used in place of rubber.
Never mount the detector or amplifier
tubes directly to the bottom of the
cabinet. Some tubes give more trouble
In his respect, depending upon the
support given to the grid, plate and
filament.
The cushioning effect is likely' to be
lost If rigid wire Is used to connect
the tube sockets. Flexible wire
should be employed because it will
not transmit vibrations like a solid
conductor. Many of the new tubes on
the market are very susceptible tt>
mechanical vibration, and in some
cases even a pencil dropped on the
table will create a ringing noise.
Radio Telia of Death.
For the firt time, radio played an
Important part in the dissemination
of news of a national character, when
President Harding died In San Fran
cisco. August 2. The President’s
death occurred at 7:30 p.m. Pacific
time, and the Associated Press had
the story out within five or ten min- |
utes, the report being received at the
•Washington office of that organiza
tion at 10:55 p.m.. eastern standard
time, or twenty-five minutes after
Mr. Harding died.
The first intimation the general
public had of the President’s death,
however, was when various newspa
pers having broadcasting licenses
sent out the Associated Press dis
patch. Among the first papers to get
on the air with this Important news
was the Memphis ommercial-Ap
peal, whose announcement was the
first word Washington llsteners-ln
had of the event.
The news, by air, that the President
had died, resulted In a great number
of telephone calls to the newspapers
and various offices of the Associated
Press throughout the country. As a
result of the broacasted announce
ment. the news of the President’s
death was generally known from
thirty minutes to two hours before
the newspapers in the larger cities
were on the street with an extra.

Amateurs Scan Weather Maps.
Radio fans may have to add a
barometer to their equipment and
study maps issued by the weather
bureau to determine their range of
transmission or reception if the
theory that radio waves tend to fol
low Isobars, or lines of equal pres
sure area, advanced by Donald C.
Wallace, assistant division manager
of the American Radio Relay League,
is correct. From experiments made
at his amateur station in Minneapolis
Mr. Wallace is convinced that radio
reception may be foretold with a fair
degree of reliability.
The subject is comparatively new
and the most that can be said for
it is that it makes a start at ex
plaining why reception is poor at
certain times and why stations at
various points of the compass are
heard with changing strength, re
i gardless of their actual distance. “If
i a daiy weather map is used.” says
| Mr. Wallace, "it will be found that
j not only do waves tend to follow the
lines of equal pressure, but the range
! of one’s set can be determined some
i hours in advance.
j “Recently a striking example of
| the effect of these high and low pres
! sure areas occurred. A tornado pass
i ed through Louisiana, making a lovv-
I pressure area, while in the northern
j part of the country there were no
I* disturbances and a high-pressure
area existed. Radio fans in this city
heard nothing more than 100 miles
distant.
“Sometimes signals take a round
about course and follow the isobars,
and In that case marked fading exists.
This is due to the fluctuation at the
edge of the high-pressure area that
exists in between. On some nights
the whole country has the same baro
metric pressure, and on those nights
stations from all sides come in. The
Mississippi valley often has the same
barometric pressure; thus signals
north and south are apt to be con
sistently loud, while they vary east
and west where barometric differences
are greater.”
Mar Eliminate Batteries.
Virtually every - radio fan is hoping
for the time when he will be able to
do away with all batteries and utilize
house current both for detector and
amplifier.
Heretofore, such a thing has been
! impossible, due to the inability to
eliminate the alternating current
hum. The patent office recently is
sued a patent (No. 1.455,141) covering
the use of house lighting alternating
current supply as a means of ener
gizing the filament lighting circuits
and the plate circuits for an elec
tron tube amplifier, and. claims the j
inventor, it can be done at a very j
low cost.
This patent, according to tlie at- j
torney for the inventor. Is, to quote I
i him, "undoubtedly a forerunner of j
the radio receiver which dispenses
with primary and secondary batteries,
rendering the radio receiving appa
ratus just as convenient and reliable
as an electric iron, electric fan.
j vacuum cleaner or other electical ac-
Icessorles.”
The new receiver, according to the
attorney, eliminates storage batteries
; and obviates the necessity of con
stantly renewing the B batteries. The
cost of operation of the new receiver
is much less than the cost of opera
tion of the present type receivers.
WRf to Improve.
Considerable difficulty has been ex
perienced by radio engineers at the
new Radio Corporation station. WRC.
at 14th street and Park road, in mak
ing its signals perfectly clear. The
trouble has been due to the station’s
microphone, and the radio engineers
expect to overcome it in the near fu
ture.

to hear what Is going on In the world
during the three months, although
they will he unable to return daily
. their adventures In mapping this
stretch of the Colorado. Arrange
ments have been made, however, with
the radio stations of the Deseret News
of Salt Lake City and the Los Angles
Times tg> broadcast bulletins sent from
trail crossings. The dispatches will
be relayed by runners and telephone
or telegraph when the party gets far
enough down the Colorado to reach
the regular lines of communication.
In this manner the world will he ad
vised of the progress of the explora
tion in the canyon and passage of the
four boats through some of the wild
est rapids In the country.
The special radio set was recon
structed by R. JU Atkinson of the
survey from a standard IVestlnghouse
regenerative set, adapted to two
stages of amplification with new
tubes. The whole outfit, Including the
batteries, is packed in a water-proof
wooden box with sponge rubber to
keep It from Jarring during the long
boat trip. An especially constructed
antenna on a reel, capable of being
erected at camp sites on the banks of
the river, can be strung from short
poles or from projecting rocks to a
I length of 150 feet
A preliminary radio test at Lees
Kerry has already been made, and It
is reported that the explorers re
ceived broadcasts from Los Angeles,
430 miles away, without difficulty at
night. The real reception test. Col.
C. it. Birdseye, who is in charge of
the party, believes, ■will come when
i they are In the lowest part of the
canyon, estimated as a mile deep, near
El Tovar, w’here dead spots and static
may be encountered.
Besides the geological and topo
, graphical results achieved the trip
will also prove of material interest
in the development of radio com
munication, along with experiments
undertaken by the bureau of mines
and other governmental bureaus to
see how far radio will carry Into the
"bowels of the earth."
