Joe Leverton and his base ball team ■
of Kallipolis Grotto, pointing with j
pride to the' clean-up of the Almas |
Temple team last June, are going to
give the Shrine another show before
the season ends. Accordingly, a game
has been arranged with the crack team
of Bourn! Temple, Baltimore, at Ameri
can League park. Washington. Septem
ber 11. The red-tops from Baltimore
are boomed as “world beaters.” Mon
arch Henry J. Oompers has circulated
the full roster of Kallipolis Grotto In
regard to the matter and a full black
top turnout Is expected when the game
Is called, at 3 :30, the afternoon of the
11th „ „
Monarch Gompers Is planning a fall
ceremonial in October, but says, it is
too soon to talk about it except to pro
spective initiates.
The Almas Temple units, according to
the Almas Alibi, are to have a circus at
Convention Hall. November 4 to 17,
when the Moore Corporation will pro
vide the entertainment
The Alibi contains an eloquent tribute
by Charles D. Warner to the late Noble
and President Warren G. Harding, to
gether with the address delivered by
President Harding before the Imperial
Council June 5. and illustrations of
Almas Temple's participation In the big
Shrine parade It also contains a long
list of articles, some of them probably
quit© valuable, which were lost or found
during Shrine week.
The Gavel Club of Master Masons,
one of the big Masonic organizations of
the District, with handsome head
quarters at 713 Kith street, northwest,
has started the ball rolling for a mam
moth carnival and funfest at the
Coliseum, over Center Market, off
Pennsylvania avenue at 9th street,
to run two weeks, from October 1 to
!n. both dates inclusive. One of the
big features of interest will be the com
mercial exhibit by manufacturers and
merchants of Washington. In conjunc
tion with a program of varied amuse
ments and entertalment, with daily
changes, including dancing every night.
Much Interest already has been
aroused by the proposed big popularity
contest among the young women, for
which a costly and handsome prize will
be given in addition to the natural joy
that will come to the winner.
President Clyde J. Nichols of the club
has drafted an efficient committee of
young business men, headed by Eugene
B McDowell, whom everybody calls
’’Mack" for short, to exploit this new
venture, and Mack says he Is waiting
until his assets are fully marshaled be
fore shooting his details.
Labor day tomorrow, with the
speculative as with the operative
mason, is likely to be generally ob
served by the Masonic bodies of the
District otherwise than with the labor
of the craft. The calendar at the head
of these columns notes where any of
the bodies have advised The Star
that their meetings have been ’’called
off.” but have failed to notify either
the grand secretary’s office or the
press. Circulars from the various
bodies for the new month also have
been conspicuous by their absence
when the calendar was prepared, due,
of course, to the printer, who is al
ways to blame when the other fellow
slips up.
Mithras Lodge of Perfection of the
Ancient and Accepted Scottish Hite
will begin its regular meetings next
Tuesday evening, when the big fea
tures for discussion and settlement
will be those pertaining to the forth
coming reunion of the local Hcottish
Rite bodies that opens October 8 and
continues through October 12, when
the full quota of degrees will be pre
sented ceremonially or Instructively.
The class for this reunion, designated
“The Supreme Council Class,” in hon
or of the Supreme Council, which will
hold its biennial session at the House
of the Temple the week of October 13.
it has been announced, will contain
men prominent in official, business
and social life In Washington. Special
efforts are always put forth upon
the Supreme Council classes for this
reason. Masons generally striving for
membership in it. During Supreme
Council week, the Royal Order of
Scotland also will meet for its an
nual banquet and the conferring of
Us degrees. This is the Masonic link
In this country which connects the
Scottish Rite Masons of the Northern
and the Southern Jurisdictions. Us
annual banquets are usually elaborate
affairs in which the feast of reason
Is quite as Important—and often more
so. than any other feature.
Whatever may have been the cause,
the bank clearings for Washington
for the month of June this year, it is
reported, showed a clear net gain of
approximately $12,000,000, and the
Shriner naturally feels that the
Shrine envention during the early
part of June is largely responsible
for this. The alibi that taxes and
government revenues were paid dur
ing the month does not vitiate the
claim, because the same taxes and
revenues were paid In the preceding
year with which the comparison was
made, according to the Shrine statis
tician.
Anezel Temple, the Shrine organiza
tion of the city of Mexico, is making
preparations for a unique ceremonial
this fall. The candidates for initia
tion will be taken to the top of the
pyramid of the sun. one of the fa
mous architectural curiosities, a few
miles outside the City of Mexico. The
pvramld wai built by an ancient race
of which no other record has been
found. The edifice is a remarkable
and eloquent monument to the genius
of this ancient people.
Special trains will be run from
cities in the United States to carry
Shrlners to this most unusual cere
mony.
In the galaxy of Freemasons —
Washington. Revere, Warren, Ben
jamin Franklin, John Paul Jones. John

TiOuis XVII. In 1780 he returned to
America and remained until the close
of the revolution. On behalf of Con
gress. Benjamin Franklin presented
Lafayette with a jeweled sword.
The exact date or place of the initia
tion of Lafayette as a Mason is not
known. It is tradition of American
Freemasonry that ho was made a
Mason in one of the military lodges at
Morristown. N. J.. where a Festal
Lodge was held December 27, 1779.
when it Is known George Washington

vania entertained him at a sumptuous
banquet In Philadelphia. Lafayette's
son, George Washington Igifayette.
also a member of the fraternity, was
present on this occasion.

Government by Commission.
From the North American Review.
Uruguay, the most progressive po
litically of all the states —which fact
has led It to be called the "social po
litical laboratory” of South America,
—has cuVtalled the power of Its chief
evecutlve by measures of a more orig
inal nature, for Uruguay does not
consider it necessary to wait for pre
cedents. All of the former adminis
trative functions of the president
1 have been transferred to a commis
sion nacional de administration of
nine members elected by popular vote
for six years, one-third being chosen
bi-ennlally. This body is responsible
to congress and has charge over such
matters as education, labor, banking,
health and sanitation, and the like.
The division of work indicated leaves
only matters which are distinctly po
litical In the hands of the president;
but Dr. Baltasar Brum, during whose
admniistratlon the Innovation was In
troduced. is quite favorable to the
change, for he believes that, former
ly, too much power was In the hands
of the chief executive. He has, fur
thermore, expressed a cheerful wil
lingness to resign his whole remain
ing authority to an executive commis
sion, which change is under serious
consideration, should the people at
any time decide that they desire It.
For the Politicians.
From the Philadelphia Public Ledger.
"Papa, is It right to say this is a
i government of the people, for the
people, by the people?"
“No. my son. Correctly speaking,
i It Is a government of the people by
the office-holders for the politicians.
RADIO GOSSIP AND NEWS
Radio amateurs on the Atlantic and
Pacific coast on the morning of Sep
tember 23 will attempt to beat the
sun across the continent In spectacu
lar daylight tests. Their transmitters
will be pitted against sunlight In
their efforts to relay messages across
the country between sunrise and sun
set.
At least ten picked amateurs on
hoth the Atlantic and Pacific coasts
will start messages as the sun comes
over the horizon and they will be
relayed by intervening stations. By
evening it is expected that most of
the messages will have reached their
destination and, for the brass pound
ers, the contest with Father Time will
end In a radio victory.
These tests have a real scientific
value, since they will demonstrate to
what extent the sun affects transmit)- i
ion. Every one familiar with radio
knows that reception over long dis
tance is more difficult during the day
time than in darkness, this being
caused, it is believed, by the loniza
tion of the earth’s atmosphere by the
sun's rays.
The disastrous effect of sunlight
upon radio has been noticed by broad
cast listeners, as well as amateurs,
and officials of the American Kadio
Relay League confidently expect that
definite comparisons may b« drawn,
whloh will prove helpful In an Inves
tigation of the subject.
“No one will know from what sta
tions the messages will start*' said i
P. H. Schnell, traffic manager")f the i
league, referring to the tests. “Every- j
body will have the same chance of
picking up a message and relaying it
along the line." He advises all ama
teurs to keep .a record of everything
they hear and whether they use
standard or daylight saving time.)
These records should be %ent to the
league headquarters at Hartford,
Conn.

Rltirf for Radio C’-ompaaa.
Position finding by wireless is des
tined to be one of the most important
navigational finds of the future,
whether employed alone or In con
junction with sound to obtain syn- ■
chronous signals, according to D. W.
Hood, engineer-in-chief of the Cor
poration of Trinity House. London,
who was among those present at the
international congress of navigation
held in London last month. George
R. Putnam, commissioner of light
houses. was among the American
delegates to the convention, which
was declared to be the most impor
tant meeting of the kind ever held.
In his report Mr. Hood referred
to the fact that various countries
have different direction-finding sys
tems of their own. and recommended
that an investigation be made to find
the most effective method, not by In
dividual countries but by one agency
under an international agreement.
The establishment of radio fog sig
nals was the most important advance
In lighthouse work in the United
States during the past ten years, ac
cording to a paper read at the confer
ence by Commissioner Putnam. The
first of these slgnels was placed
In service May 1, 1921. when three
were put into commission in the
vicinity of New York harbor. The
number of such stations has heen in
creased during the past year and
others are in course of preparation.
Each of the radio fog stations in
the waters of the United States sends
automatically during fog or low visi
bility radio signals on a wave length
of 1,000 meters, with a distinctive
characteristic, which are used by ves
sels equipped with radio compass.
Very reliable results are being ob
tained. Mr. Putnam said.
How Program* are Filled.
The radio audience has so fre
quently complimented WEAK and
WCAP for their wide variety of pro
grams, it may be of interest to the
audience to know how the programs
are decided upon by the staff which
books the features for these stations.
Every letter—and there ore hun
dreds received daily—which comes to
the stations Is carefully examined for
every fact which it contains. Every
suggestion, momment. criticism and
approval of the listener is noted In
tabular form so that the consensus
Os the audience is accurately deter
mined. Artists are booked In ac
cordance with the expression of the
radio audience and a correct balance
of educational matter, popular music,
dance music, classical music, instru
mental selections and sporting fea
tures are maintained.
WEAK and WCAP frequently have
features on their programs which are
experiments to determine the reaction i
of the radio audience. For instance, j
recently a series of lectures was
offered by the staff of Columbia Uni- !
veralty. The purpose of the experl- |
ment was to find out what demand ;
exists for educational matter and in
what form It may best be presented.
The number of approvals of this I
series of talks is an Indication of the 1
popularity of educational features.
By concentrating periods of dance
music on regular schedule. Wednesday
and Saturday evenings, it has been
possible to satisfy the demands of
the radio audience for high-class
dance music. The fact that dance
music is now presented on a fixed
schedule has made devotees of Jazz
regular listeners to WEAF's Wednes
day and .Saturday evening programs.
While the average broadcasting sta
tion Is maintained with a personnel
of from six to eight persons, the ex
tensive work which WEAF is doing
requires a staff of no less than fifty
seven. Some of these are technical
men engaged in obtaining program
matter at points outside WEAF's
studio, others in booking artlrts and
features for that program aA still
others in investigating the prefer
ences of the audience.
English Hard Hit.
The restrictions against the use of
any radio equipment except that li
censed by the British Broadcasting
Company are making it* impossible
for English merchants to sell Ameri
can radio products, according to a re
port just submitted to Washington by
Consul Boss E. Holaday from Man
chester, England.
Consul Holaday, making an investi
gation of the radio situation, found
that the restrictions upon the use of
equipment and the regulations gov
erning the use of wireless sets give
the British postmaster general,
through his arrangement with the
British Broadcasting Company, an
ironclad control over radio. There is
no prohibition against the importa
tion of foreign radio products or
against their sale after importation,
but this freedom is nullified by the
difficulty of securing a license to use
any equipment other than that In
dorsed by the “B. B. C.,“ which col
lects a royalty on every set manufac
tured In England.
There Is now under consideration
by the British authorities the Issu
ance of a new form of license to be
known as the “constructor’s license,”
, under which people with no technical
knowledge will be permitted to as
semble wireless sets and use them to
receive broadcast and other matter.
Even those who purchase the sets
manufactured under B. B. C. restric
tions are required to secure a license
before they can make use of their
1 outfits. This is known as a “broad
casting license” and costs approxi
mately 92.60. Only those persons
having “experimental licenses” are
permitted to assemble their own ap
-1 paratus, and to secure such a license
the applicant must have a knowledge
of the technical side of radio, which
the majority of would-be listeners do
not possess.
i Trying New Stunt*.
New radio history Is being made
daily by the Chesapeake and Potomac
Telephone station (WCAP) In Wash
ington. As yet no local programs
have been put out by this station,
which has confined itself to the broad
casting of the programs of WEAK.
’ New York, received in Washington

So successful did this method of
pick-up prove that concerts by the
Marine Band were sent to New York
over the line usually used for the re
ception in Washington of New York
entertainment and broadcast by
WEAF. The same system was fol
lowed on August 5. when the me
morial services held in Washington
churches for the late President Hard
ing were broadcast both from WCAP
in Washington and WEAF in New
York. The truck used by WCAP has
practically all the equipment of a
class B station.
Entertnin* State hj Radio.
After spending nearly a million dol
| lars to build a magnificent rkansion
i on the ancestral lands of "the Pilgrim
Fathers,” Col. Edward H. R. Green,
the multi-millionaire son of Hetty
Green, looked around for “new worlds
to conquer” and hit upon radio, not
as a mere pastime, but an absorbing
study. An aerial 100 feet high stands
out against the sky line and neigh
bors for miles around listen nightly
to his station, “The Voice from Way
Down East.”
This is one of a scries of hobbies
which began for the colonel as a boy
when he started a chicken farm in
Texas and ran the whole gamut from
| mules to fishing and politics to-base
;ball. He introduced the first automo
■ bile and the first nirplane in that
state and topped off his career there
when he purchased the world’s larg
est private yacht.
Few of ills friends realized, how
ever. that <’ol. Green was interested
iin radio before he went to South*
Dartmouth, Mass. He was an ama-*.
teur in Texas, when radio was young,"
and began his experiments about the
lime that he became a member of the
American Radio Relay league. He
has since maintained active concern’
in the welfare of amateur radio. "
His other hobbies, including a
houseboat, a Texas railroad and a
stamp collection, are now held sec
ondary to radio, and he spends a
great deal of his time riding around
Tils beautiful estate, dotted with arti
ficial lakes, In his electric auto equip
ped with wireless.
The broadcast station planned by
Col. Green, in conjunction with sev
eral leading engineers of the country,
is a well furnished home itself with
a reception room. His programs are
of the best, since they are sent from
New York by wire, and as the evening
breeze blows in from the shore hun
dreds listen to what they call the
colonel's “jazz fog.”
His Painting Outdone.
From the Bouton Post.
An artist was commissioned to
paint the portrait of the flapper
daughter of a wealthy family. One
order of this kind successfully exe
cuted is apt to bring another, so he
went happily to work.
Things went well enough the first
day, which was spent in putting on
the crayon sketch. The next day
found him hesitating, and on th*
third day he came to a complete halt.
After viewing his sister In silence
for a few moments, he said: “I see
that my paints are not going to be
briilionf enough. Whore do you buy
your colors’.’’
Parson—My good man: With all
that cursing and heating of your
horse, you’ll never get to heaven.
Harry—Maybe, but I’m only going
to town with the pertatoes.
