In the new instrument the cur
rent passes through 'a thread of
platinum or of silver-covered
quartz, 1-1250 of an inch in dia
meter. The oscilations caused by
every separate action, of the heart
reveal the condition of the organ.
Only the more decided oscila
tions are visible to the eye, how
ever, and to make a perfect and
permanent record of even the
minutest, resort is had to the
camera. The magnified image of
the oscilating string is thrown, by
means of powerful light, upon a
narrow slit in a dark box which
contains a moving picture film.
By means of a shutter arrange
ment over the slit, exposures in
i egular moving picture fashion
are made upon the film.
The record of a patfent's heart
beat appears on the film in some
thing resembling a series of an
gular, vertical capital M's with
lesser irregularities. To the
trained eye this record gives an
exact knowledge of the patient's
heart action. ,
The whole record may be 'con
veyed by wire from the bedside
to the doctor in his office or lab
oratory several miles away, or
even in another city.

Editor of The Day Book:
The Capitalistic Press seem to
get more meat of the McNama
ra's case every few days, 2nd use
it to discredit organized labor as
a whole.
While we believe we have some
crooks and criminals in our ranks,
which we are not able toidentify
or weed out, the same applies to
all other organizations, business
and professions.
What if we condemned the
whole ministry for the criminal
a'ct of one preacher who has been
found' guilty of some atrocious
act as nas Deen tne case, tne
Press or the Public should not be
so selfish and narrow as to pass
judgment and condemn us all for
the act of a few, even when it does
look like it would be tHe act of
an organization.
A few may' get together and
commit, some overaqt unknown
to the majority which would not
be countanaced if known before
hand. We of organized labor feel we
are as reputable arid law abiding
as any other member of society
ancLtherefore vigorously repudi
ate such criminals at all .times,
and ask the press to give us as
a whole the same consideration
as any other member of society in!
the future.
