Mothewa served
as a major in the World war. studying
gas warfare at the British fronl and
serving in charge of the. gas and Hume
branch of the trench warfare section
of the United States army.
"Tile purpose Of ;::;- ill VVB

as saying to the American I^egion

may be protected and to serve as a
warning to other potential evildoers.
"It Is to be hoped that civilization
has reached n point where revenge is
no longer a motive. Only savages tor
ture their victims before killing them;
the use of any of the war gases to re
move criminals would be quite In line
with the practice of sava)
Professor Mathews sab! there were
gases which might be used for execu
tions, If the use of gas at all could
ever be deemed wise. Carbon dioxide,
the poisonous constituent of ordinary
Illuminating gas, he declared would
be the logical one to use. He asserted.
however, that If the administration of
Kfts for execution of criminals were
carried out, It should be entirely In
the hands of medically trained men
who understand both its use and at
tendant dangers.
"The horrors of poorly curried out
electrocutions nre sufficiently vivid In
the minds of thinking people to make
them abhor any method of execution
which may not be both humane and
effective," he declared.

Encountering the enemy's barrage,

threw into It a Mills hand grenade and
killed and wounded several members

Reno (Nev.) Editor, on Bike Ride
Through Country, Spreads News
of the Posts.
Traveling 125 miles a day. and
camping at night by the roadside, l ton
itld I". Chase twenty-one yearn old, re
cently passed through Middle Western
cities on a bicycle from Keno, Nov.. to
: Syracuse, N. V.
Young Chase's family lives at Syra
cuse and, as a vacation from bis duties
as city editor of the Nevada state
Journal, the energetic lad derided he
would ride through and see his mother.
The Heno American Legion saw a
chance to do some worth-while adver
tising. So arrangements were made
whereby Chase should speak before 110
Legion posts on his way across me
continent. At first lie spoke only of
what the Heno posts of the Legion and
I the Nevada state department are do-
Ing, but later he found that he could
be of greater service by telling each
i post of all the good things that other
posts along his route are doing.
The young gatllng gun which he
\ carried with him saw service when an
j automobile driver ran into his bicycle
near Topeka, Kan., and then refused
to stop to see what damage had been
done, Chase put a bullet In a tire and
then made the driver haul him and his
j bike to town.
"One doesn't realize just what the
American Legion is doing until he vis
' Its Legion posts and sees the efforts
of these posts to Improve their com
j munities." be said.

How D.fferent Forms of Winding
Affect Reception of Long and
Short Waves.
Tuning lnductuncea fur nullo re
cehiiig circuits nre made In o variety
of forms. For short waves, the most
commonly used form of Inductance Is
the single layer solenoid, which is
nothing more nor less ti, im the com-
Hum tuning coll, consisting of a sln-
K'e layer of wire wound upon m
cylindrical form.
The method used to vary the in
ductunce of a tuning coll Is a slide
which gives single turn variations or
a Itch which usually varies the in
ductance in groups of turns. For
very close tuning where even the
turn to turn variation is too course, a
series or shun; In the clrcull is nec
A closer variation of Inductance can
be procured by splitting the number

In a "duo-lateral" winding the con- ,

wound variometers with no shunted
capacity are most efficient for short

amount of shunted capacity for tun-
