- THE EVENING WOf?LI)S SERVICE COLUMN. By Capt. Robert Scofield Wood. CONCERNINQ THE 360 AND 400 METRE CONFLICT. Innumerable letters have been recelvod toy thla department from rndlo rntliuM utB who nro viewing with conatonuitloi tea Intcricrenco nnd troublo cnucd y 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 results nrt llttlo better, according to many, thun having one phonogrnph play ing Jazz with a loud needle und nnother y running oITii Caruso record with a sort necd'.u 'illaneously. 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- 1 . rff-l. ,1 .1. n.rd ' iiuuu. 1 lie iimuuiuciui vi a ,11111 uoih'".- 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 cuit tuners. 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, Is recommended. Tho Ideal condition, of course, would 00 to havo n dlfferenco of broadcasting wava lengths of such magnitude that Interference with one another would bo impossible even on the present-day np para tin.

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 confidence. 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 " Uptown's Biggest and Bcsl Store WEST 125th STREET, Bet. 7th and 8th Aves.
