By Capt. Robert Scofield Wood.
CONCERNINQ THE 360 AND 400
Innumerable letters have been recelvod
toy thla department from rndlo rntliuM

the newly dcnlgnnlcd 00-nic(ro slntlons
and the 360-mctrc cslnbliMimentB brond
editing at tho immo tltno. From tlie ma
Jorlly of letter It seems Hint llio differ'
nee In wave length docs not permit
the tuning of (no station to the exclu
sion of the other stations' offerings. To
tune In n 400-mctro station or a SCO-
metre station clearly nnd without In
terferenco seems practically Imposslbla
when both stations arc on tho ulr. Tho

many, thun having one phonogrnph play

Whether the fault lies with tho broad
casting or receiving Instruments Is .1
matter which will bo adjusted under
pressure of popular demand. The
slightest error In tuning the broadcatt
Ing Instrument would be sufllcicnt to
cause the trouble, as for Instnnco a sta
tion broadcasting on 3C0 metres with 1111
error of 10 per cent, or even 5 per cent
on the high sldo-of the scale. With
an error of 10 per cent, the stntlMi
would be broadcasting on a wave Ictutn
of 396 metres nnd of & per cent, on 37S
metres, leaving n very small and nlmo.it
negllglhlo, margin between It and U19
400-metre' stations. Then, too, tpo
broadcasters In heir effort to reach as
many peoplo us posslblo are apt to fo'eo
more power Into the aerial than It wis
designed to rfllclcntly radiate, with 11
result that the numbers being Broad
cast conio out In a band ol wave lengths
ranging from ten or twenty motrcB on
both sides of tho wave length for which
tho Instrument Is uctually tuned. Thus
the margin between the two conflicting
stations Is cut down and made far too
small to bo compensated for by tho
general run of receiving sets on thi
market to-day. Desplto tho cause of the
troubh. lit us try to adjust It on tho
Instruments over which wo have control, .
the receivers. I
Selectivity In tuning Is a matter nf
design, and loth crystal and million
tube sets as sold at present are- not
sufficiently sensitive, to tune to nn exact
wave length to th-s exclusion of every,
thing else In tho Immedloto neighbor-

are now called upon to fulfil an obliga
tion to tho public and put on tho mar
ket an Instrument capable of coping
with the ulttmtlon.
However, for tho benefit of thoso who
re already In possession of radio appa
ratus, here ore a few recommendations
that may.helu eliminate a lot of trouble,
nnd while they will not tune In stations
to tho absolute exclusion of nil others
broadcasting at tho samo time, they
will tend to lessen tho Interference so
that It does hot become n menace and
will hardly bo objectionable.
Those who are using exceptionally
large nntennne know from experience
that great difficulty Is encountered In
tuning an Instrument shnrply, nnd It
la advised that they reduce the length
of tho aerial to approximately scventy
flvo feot. Including tho lead-In wire.
This antenna should be of the slngla
wire typo and stretched as far aw
from metallic objects nnd ns free of ill
surrounding obstructions ns con con
veniently bo arranged. Keep the niv
tennn ns far from the mctalllo roof as
possible nnd remember to keep tho line
of direction at right angles to nil power
carrying lines such ns high tension
cables nnd elevated and subwny third
rails. Tho lend-In should be kept away
from water pipes, metallic leaders and
drain lines. It has been established by
actual test that the short antenna will
tune much more shorply than the long
antenna for both coupled and stnglo cir
Another method which will work to
advantage this, howcv r, holds good
only for vacuum tube sets ol two or
three tubes located within a few miles
of the broudcnstlng stations Is to make
use of the well known directional prop
erties of the loop aerial, liy turning tho
loop, the construction of which has been
described In these columns severnl
times, In the direction of the stntlon
to bo received, all stations not In the
line of the loop will lie cut out. Tho
loop cannot Ikj used with any degreo
of success with vacuum tube sets whlrti
nro not equipped with at IcaM two steps
of rndlo frequency amplification before
tho detector, whero tnc set Is more than
ten miles from the broadcasting estnli
llshmcnt. Fur crystal set vacuum tube
sets of thu detector and two-step
variety outside of tho ten-mile radius,
tho short antenna, as described above,
Tho Ideal condition, of course, would

ight or Wrong, the
Customer is oMways IQght
A noble span, invisible to the eye, reaches
across from our imposing new building to
the humble little basement store in which
our house had its origin.
That span is the powerful personality of the
late JL. M., Blums tein the founder of our house.
Our new building the largest department
store in the residential section of New
York is not merely a commercial structure
of stone and steel. It is a monument to the
conquering courage and indomitable ideals
of L. M. Blumstein.
It is to him this house owes its origin it is to him
it owes its growth. Step by step he built it up
from its humble beginnings. Year by year he
built it greater and greater. But the greatest
thing he built during all his years was public
Our new building is better than all its prede
cessors in every way buf one better in con
struction, better in merchandise, better in
service, but not better in policy. The policy
adopted by our founder almost half a century
ago cannot be improved upon" Right or wrong,
the customer is always right "

in such a way as to make it an unusually fine instrument. The tone is

price, because of a concession on the purt of the manufacturer is one
