The apparatus at the government station was later inspected by persons attending the con vention. which adjourned last night after a .two-day session. wm a feature that attracted con siderable attention. This appurte nance is a sort of "dark bulb" which, jw.hen used, nullifies all foreign |.sounds and burring, clarifying the I reproduction of the broadcast. Tho trouble, heretofore has been the annoyance encountered often in re ceiving messages and having their import gambled because of the bur ring noises. The radio frequency amplifier was | given another demonstration in a room on the sixth floor of the hotel. This Jittle suitcase instrument, with no aerials attached, listened xtn on many "air** conversations, and one heard with perfect ease and clarity. Harding; to <Jet. Mnmage*.

AERIAL REQUIRES GOOD INSULATION Here are some hints for radio be- | ginners: 1. F-irst determine where you are; going to place your aerial wire. Get as much of it as you can in a horizontal position, relative to the ground. If possible have it in the shape of an inverted letter "L." with the free end pointing away from the broadcasting station. Have the end which goes into your house pointing toward the broad casting station. This is important. See the aerial is well insulated; No. 14 bare copper wire, single strand, will do, but seven stranded phosphor-Haronzc or copper weld is I better. In case it is necessary to make any joints in the serial wire j see they are soldered. Aerial should be thirty feet above the' ground and at least 150 feet long. 2. Next make your ground con nection. A good ground is impera I tive. In city homes this Is best obtained by soldering a wire to your water pipe system or to the steam heat radiator. If these are not available (in country homes) bury a sheet of copper plate twelve feet square- in moist earth. 3. There is no danger from light ning in wireless sets properly grounded, but-4t is best * to get a single pole double throw switch and copnect it up so that the aerial can be grounded when the receiv ing set is not being used. 4. In making electric connections between different parts of your ap paratus use ordinary lamp cord No. 18 B and S gauge. See that all your connections are tightly made.

LOW-PRICED RADIO SET BIG PROBLEM Three problems stand in the way of radio becoming a universal method of receiving news, addresses, weather reports, concerts, political news. etc. The first is the perfection of an extremely low-priced, wide-range re ceiving set that anyone can operate. The second is the elimination of static disturbances that produce buss ing confusion in the receiver. The third is the solution of the mystery of "pockets." These are in explicable spots, such as Saratoga. N. Y., where messages, audible all around, cannot be heard. A fortune is waiting for the man who helps solve these problems.

Durlnc the paat decade many hundreds of amateur enthusiasts have been In tensely interested and have con-1 trlbuted to a very considerable em teat to the development of the transmission of speech as well as! telegraphic signals. From the ranks of these amateurs have come a nsmber of Inventions and im provements. Oa lira F??adatl?a. . It remained, however, for the com mercial engineers and manufacturer* to place the radio telephone upon a firm and broad foundation. This haa been done by the establishment of a number of powerful radiophone broadcasting stations in various cen ters of the United States. These stationa transmit music, sermons and news broadcast so that one owning a receiving station can tune in on them and receive r-oncerts. crop re ports. weather reports and a resume of ihe day'a news. The range of these stations is such that no part of the country is too remote to be kept in touch with the events of the day. It is no longer necessary to spend months and even veara in becoming proficient in the use of the telegraph codes in order to tune in on the radio happenings of today, snd It is for thia reason that a very large number of business and professional men are taking up radio as a di version or hobby.
