STATION W6AZ SOON
TO RESUME SERVICE
Broadcasting Prom South Bend,
Halted Several Months, to Be
Operated on Huge Scale.
SOUTH BEND. Ind., September 27.
Remodeled and its power increased,
station WGAZ of the South Bend
•Tribune will soon resume its broad
cast service after several months of
silence. The station now is the larg
est and most powerful in Indiana, and
its program will be heard from coast
to coast.
Station WGAZ is licensed to oper
ate 24 hours daily, but for the present
will be on the air only three nights
each week, Monday, Wednesday and
Friday. H. 1.. Kirkling, designer and
builder of the station, will be in
charge of the operating room, assist
ed by Paul Mangus, a licensed oper
ator and a pioneer in radio in this
section. C. G. Livengood will resume
his position as announcer and will be
In general charge of the station.
With two steel towers, each 75
foot high, holding aloft 160 feet from
♦he ground what has been declared
by radio engineers who have seen it
to bo the finest and most up-to-the
minute aerial in the Middle West,
WGAZ will now operate on a wave
length of 275 meters. The installa
tion of the latest type of broadcast
ing apparatus and the employment of
f.,000 volts of storage batteries for
power, together with the new aerial,
are expected to result in surprising
clarity of reception. Os the most
modem and scientific design WGAZ's
aerial is now 110 feet in length and
is composed of seven strands three
feet apart with a cage lead-in. Two
feel from the roof of the Tribune
building runs the counterpoise, an
almost exact duplicate of the aerial,
but of greater dimensions.

PRAISES CONSTITUTION
IN VALLEL FORGE TALK
Pepper Appeals for Preservation of
‘‘Things the Fathers
Won for Us.'’
By the Associated Press.
VALLEY FORGE. Pa., September
27.—“ Modern reformers” who seek to
“blow the foundations from under the
Constitution" were assailed yesterday by
Senator George Wharton Pepper at
memorial exercises in connection with
the celebration of the 150th anniver
sary of the meeting of the First Con
tinental Congress in Carpenters’ Hall,
Philadelphia.
The Senator appealed to his audi
ence “to preserve the things which
the fathers won for us.” touching
upon the ideals which inspired Wash
ington's barefooted soldiery in their
Winter encainpment on this historic
site.
“When things go wrong here, in
ninety-nine cases out of a hundred it
is we who are faulty,” he said, “and
not our constitutional system. Our
job is not to chop the Constitution to
fit our abnormalities, but to make
ourselves worthy to live under the
Constitution as it is.”
Hills of Valley Forge once peopled
by the ragged Continentals were yes
terday again alive with soldiery in the
uniforms of a century or more ago.
One group, in revolutionary costume,
depicted Washington and his troops
receiving a courier telling of the cap
ture of Philadelphia by the British.
The celebration concluded with the
presentation of silken copies of the
flag of the thirteen original colonies to
military commands from other States,
who paraded in their brilliantly col
ored uniforms.
Cuba Names Representatives.
HAVANA,September 27.—The Cuban
Chamber of Commerce yesterday ap
pointed Us representatives to the for
eign trade conference of the Southern
Commercial Conference to be held in
Atlanta, Ga., next month. They are

DENIES BAN ON ALIENS
WHO DODGED SERVICE
Federal Judge Geiger Disallows
Claims of United States Regard
ing Naturalization.
By the Associated Press.
MILWAUKEE. Wis., September 27.
—Aliens who claimed military ex
emption during the World War may
become citizens. Federal Judge F. A.
Geiger ruled here yesterday, when
he disallowed claims of the Govern
ment through its naturalization ex
aminers. The decision affects more
than 200 applicants for citizenship in
the eastern district of Wisconsin.
In his decision Judge Geiger said
he had not lost sight of the conflict
of opinion of other Federal judges,
but believed that the "rights of natu
ralization may be said to emanate
from ‘sovereign grace.’ ”
He quoted a section of the draft
law, which says “subjects of Ger
many residing in the United States,
whether they declared their intention
of becoming citizens or not, and all
ether resident aliens who have not
taken out their first papers shall be
exempted.”
He declared the Government’s po
sition was incongruous, in that it
was suggested that November 11,
1918, was once decided upon as the
proper point of commencement for
naturalization work, following the
war, while another decision says the
final date ~of the peace treaty was
decided upon.
German Opera Star Dead.
PRAGUE, September 27.—Carl Bur
rian. operatic tenor, died yesterday
at his country home near Rakovnik.
about 15 miles outside of Prague. He
was 53 years old
Carl Burrian made his debut as an
operatic tenor in 1892. singing the
roles of Faust and Lohengrin. He
sang for the most part Wagnerian
roles in Cologne, Berlin, Hamburg,
Hanover and the Metropolitan Opera
House’ in New York and Covent Gar
den, London. He was born in Prague.

The Grid Leak’s Place (a the Radio
Baa.
Practically every radio fan who
dates his interest in radio back about
3 years when the boom first began
can remember the crude devices used
at that time to perform the functions
of the grid leak.
A piece of fiber or even cardboard
with two terminals and a number of
ink or pencil lines drawn between
and connecting the two terminals
formed the grid leak resistance. No
one knew the resistance value of the
element and very few cared to in
vestigate and experiment sufficiently
to get the best possible value for
most efficient operation. Os what
use was it anyhow to experiment
with the device when slight tempera
ture and moisture changes in the at
mosphere played havoc with its con
stants.
In most cases ail that was done
was to either draw more lines or
erase some of them until the re
ceiver operated without the noises
which manifested themselves when
the value of the grid leak resistance
was very far from being of the, cor
rect value. The chances that the re
sistance would be adjusted properly
were very slim.
Because of the fact that a receiver
will operate with different value-s of
grid leak resistances, few fans realize
the importance of a proper adjust
ment of the grid leak resistance.
It is the general custom to recom
mend a grid leak of "from 1 to 10
megohms.” leaving it to the con
structor to use, his own judgment as
to what size to use. A grid leak of
two megohms is usually decided on
as the most convenient size and is
generally used by most constructors
of sets.
This size will give results under all
ordinary conditions, but it is not al
ways the best to use.
Fuaction of Grid leak.
The function of the grid leak in the
radio circuit is first to bring the grid
of the detector tube to the proper
normal grid voltage to permit the
tube to operate at maximum eflici
eney as a detector and second to pro
vide a path by means of which the
excess negative charges which ac
cumulate on the grid may leak off
from the grid and find their way back
to th" filament of the tube. While it

is necessary to provide a means
whereby the negative charges may
be allowed to leak off from the grid,
the value of the resistance path must
be adjusted to permit them to leave
in such a manner and in such quanti
ties as to keep the value of the nega
tive charges on the grid at the proper
value for best operation of the tube
as a detector.
The reason why a tube will some
times operate as a detector without
the use of a grid leak is due- to one,
or all of the following reasons: The
tube may he one of the gaseous or
low vacuum type and the gas pres
ent in the tube may form a conduct
ing medium of high resistance be
tween the grid and the filament,
thereby acting as a grid leak re
sistance; the tube socket may be
made of poor insulating material,
which afTords a path <nf high re
sistance between the grid and fila
ment terminals of the socket, thus
acting as the grid leak resistance:
the base of the tube may he made of
a poor insulating material whose
action is the same as that of a poor
socket material; the dielectric ma
terial used in the grid condenser may
have certain conducting properties
which allow it to act as a grid leak,
permitting the charges to leak from
the grid side terminal to the filament
side terminal of the condenser.
If there were no possibility of leak
age the tube would become choked
and inoperative.
6 CARDINALS MAKE PLEA.
Tell Herriot Policies Arouse Dis
favor Abroad.
PARIS, September 27.—The six car
dinals of France have addressed a col
lective letter to Premier Herriot, draw
ing his attention to the deep feeling
which they say has been aroused by
his policy toward the church as regards
the suppression of the French em
bassy to the Vatican, introduction of
education without religious teaching in
Alsace-Lorraine and strict application
of existing laws to religious orders.
“The government’s measures, as proj
ected,’’ says the letter, "constitute a
grave menace to internal peace, justice
and liberty, to the interests of the
country and respect for France in the
eyes of foreigners. ’’
Radio Gets Call
To Act as Nurse
For Young Mother
PHILADEBPHIA, September. 27.
Radio has developed many human
interest stories, but one of the most
interesting of all turned up today in
an appeal to broadcasting station
WDAR, when the mother of a new
born baby telephoned to the station's
baby health instructor for personal
aid in bringing up the six-week-old
child.
Mrs. James D. Nery of Deepwater,
near Salem, N. J., had long been an
ardent radio fan and a member of
the WDAR Mother's Club. This club
is a general organization of women
who listen to the broadcast "Baby
Health Talks.’’ which are given every
week by Mrs. Bouis' Dove through
the Ut Bros.’ station, *
When little Jay. her son. joined the
Nery family in Deepwater six weeks
ago. Mrs. .Very did her beat to re
member all she had heard about
babies over her radio set. But she
found that there was so much to
know about babies, and so many,
many things could happen to them,
that she began to worry about re
membering them all.
Po today Mrs. Ix>ve received a tele-
