Upon looking in the paper I find
that the Waldorf-Astoria program is
broadcast by WEAK. I heard this pro
gram on a wave length of about 370
mote Ts. What station was it?—L H.
G.. Jr.
Stations WEAF and WJZ broadcast
music by the Waldorf-Astoria or
chestras. However, both of these sta
tions transmit on wave bands far
above 370 meters. WEAF uses the
492-meter band and WJZ 455.
Radio Editor:
Will you kindly tell me what sta
tion was broadcasting in Spanish
Thursday night between 10 and 11
o’clock. A woman was singing and
talking in Spanish. Did not sound
like PWX, as the familiar generator
"chu-chu-chu" noise was lacking.—

Station WAHG, in Richmond Hill,
Staton Island. N. V., has been broad

that you picked up this station.
Radio Editor:
Being a suburbanite, the radio is
my greatest source of amusement,
and 1 am not in any way unappreci
ative of the freo entertainment ren
dered thereby.
I cannot, however, let the oppor
tunity pass without voicing criticism
of tho boresome praise of Fred Lind
strom, third baseman for the Giants,
by Mr. McNamec from the Polo
Grounds durjng the world series
Every one interested in base bali
cannot but admire the great players
and especially the youngsters in their
first world series, but it would seem
in broadcasting such an event the an
nouncer should at least be neutral
and give some of the other players
credit. New York is probably Mr.
McNamec’s home town.
Ono would infer from Mr. Mc-
Namoe's unceasing praise of Lind
strom that h® was tho only player
on tho lot, and regardless of his stel
lar playing it grows monotonous: it
is oven more tiresome than “Alabama.
24 for Underwood.”
Being a Washington fan I may be a
little narrow minded, but trying to
listen to the description of the game,
ticking supper, and attending to nay
throe children at the same time, it
would add to my enjoyment to hear a
little more about what the other
17 players were doing because my
present impression from Mr. McNa
meo's description of the wonderful
Undstrom is that McGraw could fire
everybody but that worthy player,
and still have a world’s champion
Let's hear frdm some of the other
fans—-MRS. C. M. MARTIN, Cherry
dale. Va.
Radio Editor:
Can you or on© of the fans tell

Thanking you for past favors, I
trust you can help me locate the call
letters or origin of four stations. On
Wednesday I heard a station in Nor
folk. Va.. about 5:30 p.m.._ broad
casting dance music. About 7:50 p.m.
I heard a station that sounded like
WFBH. Manhattan. The third number
on its program was “Memory Lane." At
9:15 p.m. I heard a station that sounded
like KFKA and the station was an
nounced as KFKA and the station
announced as Marion about It miles
from South Bend. At 10:15 p.m. I
heard another station but all I could
catch was 'The Voice From the North
Country." I will be very thankful for
your heIp—EDWARD A. DOKE.
WTAK is the station you heard in
Norfolk. Va. WFBH Is located in
New York City. It is owned and oper
ated by the Concourse Radio

uses the slogan>The yoice From the

Mr. Carson’s troubles in regard to
code interference are exactly my own
I have had a great deal of trouble
the past 10 days or so bringing m dis
tant stations because of this code. I
am sure the station referred to by
Mr. Carson, whose call letters he
could not understand, Was station
WNYC at New York, whose wave
length is 526 meters. The code seems
to be loudest at 53# meters, just be
tween the points on my dial where 1
usuallv receive WNYC and KYW. In
fact, the code is so loud at this point
that on my one-tube set I can hear
It all over the apartment when the
receivers arc laid on the table. The
code also comes in quite loud on about
3SO meters, and while WOY usually
edmes in fine, I cannot hear the sta
tion while the code is coming In.
Wednesday night I tried an experi
ment. I turned to E3O meters just
about tho time the Arlington time
signals were being sent out, and there
was my code in the form of time {sig
nal dashes—not as loud as the regu
lar code, but pretty loud. I ther
turned to 3SO meters, and there were
the time signals again. Immediately
after the 10 o’clock dash the code be
gan. I live very near the navy yard,
and T have thought it might be the
station there causing the interference.
hurely. Inasmuch as this code has
not been hfard until reccrtly. If it is
caused by a Government station steps
should be taken to rid the air of this
interference.— J. R. PRATHER.

Gfits Another Melon.
The dog that's tied you need not fear
If careful not to go too near.
—Old Man Coyote.
Bowser the Hound knew now why
he had been left tied to the fence on
the edge of Farmer Brown’s melon
patch. . A shadowy form was moving
about in the melon vines. Bowser
knew who it was instantly. He knew
it was Old Man Coyote. The hair
lifted along Bowser's back and neck.
With a roar of his great voice he
sprang forward. The shadowy form
of Old Man Coyote moved swiftly and
disappeared. Bowser plunged after
him. The line by which he was lied
to the fence brought him up so sud
denly that he was pulled over back
wartls. Once more on his feet lie
tugged and pulled and strained at
that line. But it held fast. ’At last
Bowser gave up. and growling softly
went back to his bed of straw. But
he didn't go to sleep again. No, sir;
he didn't go to sleep again.
The next night Bowser was left in
the melon patch tied to the fence as
he had been the night before. He
understood now what it all meant.
Nothing happened until along toward
morning. Then once more he saw the
shadowy form o7 Old Man Coyote. As
before, he rushed after Old Man Coy
ote as far as the line would let itfin.
But litis time Old Man (’oyote didn't
disappear. Instead, he sal down just
a short distance away and with a
grin on his sharp face watched Hou -
ser struggle to get free. The harder
Bowser tugged at that line which held
him the broader grew Old Man Coy
ote's grin. He understood perfectly
why Bowser was tied out there in tho
melon patch.
"That is why lie didn't follow me
last night." thought Old Man Coyote.
"He could go only as far as that line
would let him. As long as 1 keep be
yond the length of that line that dog
is harmless, l.didn’t have a melon
feast last night because I didn’t know
then that Bowser was a prisoner. But
if there is a nice, ripe melon beyond
the reach of that dog it is going to he
mine. My, my, my; such a racket as
ttiat dog makes! 1 guess IT! have to
move quickly or Bowser will have his
master down here.”
Old Man Coyote moved in a half
circle just beyond Bowser's reach until
he ha* found out just how much of
*»*•» Mu Ift
the melon patch the line by which
Bowser was fastened would allow him
to cover. He knew that within this
half circle he couldn’t hope to get a
melon. But there were melons outside,
that half circle, and these Old Man
Coyote visited one after another until
he found one that suited him This
he soon tore to pieces, greedily swal
lowing the red, juicy inside He
gulped it down, for he was in a hurry.
AH the'time Bowser was tugging at
the line which held him. and harking
as if he would bark his head off.. Only
a few feet away was Old Man Coyote,
paying no more attention to him than
if he didn't exist. But Old Man Coy
ote was keeping watch of Farmer
Brown's house as he gobbled that
melon. He suspected that the noise
Bowser was making would bring
some one to see what it was all
about. It was just as he swallowed
the last mouthful of melon that the
door of Farmer Brown's house opened
Old Man Coyote disappeared like a
gray ghost.

Unable to Beach Decision on Suit
of New York Police Head
for $150,000.
By the Associated Press.
NEW YORK, October 11.—A jury of
11 men which heard the $150,000 libel
suit of Richard E. Enright, police
commissioner, against Assemblyman
Louis E. Cuviilier and Magistrate
Joseph E. Corrigan disagreed after
almost 12 hours’ deliberation.
The commissioner alleged he had
been damaged by statements in a
telegram sent by Assemblyman Cuvii
lier, and relased to the press by
Magistrate Corrigan last April. Tho
twelfth juror was excused from duty
yesterday by agreement of both sides,
due to his serious illness.
Justice Callaghan in his charge to
the Jury asked the jurors. "Do you
believe the plaintiff is a grafter, and
that he has graft collectors? If you
do not, he is entitled to damages. If
you do believe it, he is not entitled
to damages."
Counsel for the police commissioner
asserted that his client would press
the suit and added that a new trial
would be sought soon.

How to Arrange Battery Binding
t PmU.
Ono of the problems of tho amateur
radio constructor is the best method
of arranging battery terminate for
most efficient reception and construc
With the possible exception of A
battery binding posts and the antenna
and ground pouts of the set which can
bj conveniently arranged on the
front of the panel, all battery binding
posts should be placed at the back
of the pet so that the leads from the
terminals can be attar.hed to the B
batteries at the rear of the cabinet,
thus hiding the unsightly batteries
behind the cabinet.
A considerable amount of the risk
of burning out tubes can be elimi
nated by placing the A lottery posts
on the front panel so that even
though the B batteries arc not con
nected properly at the back, there will
be no chance of burning out any
tubes. It is also advisable to uoc the
engraved binding posts now available
which make it a very simple matter
to connect the battery terminals
These binding posts are made with
n> n-removable heads and with a hole
drilled through the shaft as shown
in the diagrams below. This hole
makes it possible to get a very (tVm
1 connection to any wire threaded
through it and clamped Into place by
tightening down the head of the post.
Made for IDinel Mounting.
They are made for panel mounting
so theit they cannot be screwed into a
wood baseboard. It Is therefore
necessary to provide a subpanel for
mounting them at the rear of the
baseboard. - S
A simple way of doing this is
shown below. A binding post mount
ing panel of the typo which can bo
obtained at most radio stores for
about 25 cents is used. These com©
already drilled.

One standard panel of this type is
7 inches long, 1 finches wide and 3-1*
of an inch thick. A hole is drilled
in tho center inch from one end
and eight other holes are drilled with
a distance of \ inch from center to
If you cannot obtain a strip of this
kind you can make It easily enough
by cutting up a standard 7-Inch panel
or by buying a panel slightly longer
than you need for tho panel of your
set and using the excess for binding
NEW YORK. —Whoever named
Firpo the Wild €>uli did him a wrong.
The Argentinian throws no bull at
all and ho isn't wild. He is a tame,
businesslike, common sense person
possessed of unusual candor. Now
that he has lost that puzzled glare—
his eyes used to shine blankly like
those of a monkey in a dark cage—
and has learned a little English, he
is developing into a very likable
"Do you like the United States?’
he wan asked.
”No." said Firpo. Tho conversa
tion is condensed. “I do not like
the country. I liko some Americans,
hut not many. The food is punk.
But, O boy, tho money—and I’m fight
ing for money.”
I like that better than if bo had
told us he loved us.
Romance isn’t confined to fiction.
In the past 10 years,- 20, perhaps 40.
novels have been written in which
the scene of love and murder Is laid
in a deserted mansion on the Long
Island shore. Mose of us have., re
fused to believe there are any de
serted mansions. Or at least any
mansions that lack belligerent care
takers. But here’s the proof that the
fiction writers were right
One of the bootleg gangs made its
headquarters at the genuine deserted
mansion near Montauk Point Fine
old wine cellars harbored the Illicit
stuff. The bootleg boats landed
alongside the deserted dock. The
smugglers slept In caves in the near
by cliffs. It was raided In a riot that
sounded liko the Battle of Prague.
The bootleggers are a low order of
criminal, 'of course. But they are
doing wonders for our authentic
American literature.
Speaking of authentic literature, a
friend has Just returned from a visit
to —well, darn it, Provlhcetown. Why
shouldn't I give the name? She said
that she feared before arrival that
she had not brought enough clothes.
“But when I saw the wife of a
prominent author walking down the
single street bare-footed, wearing a
ragged pair of boy’s kneo pants and
a torn shirt, I knew I had brought
too many.”
Great laughter was produced at a
dinner gathering of the more or less
authentic Jiteratl when a bon mot of
one of tho authentic fishermen was
repeated. A reporter from Boston
had hailed the fisherman for Informa
“Do you think that Miss So-and
so” —naming a lady whoso account of
her struggle out of the clutches of
darkness has just been published and
highly paid so see me?”
“Dunno,” said the fisherman. "She
can If she ain’t too drunk.”
Somehow the gossip in these parts
seems to clot about the topic of boot
legging. But, apart from its more
or less universal appeal, for those
of us who are not being reformed
are trying to reform tho others, it
has a zip and go and pep that others
lack. The morning's papers report a
battle on tho high seas, in which the
steering gear of a rum boat was shot
away. A $40,000 cargo was taken
from a truck in the city's outskirts
by hijackers. A veiled advertisement
asks for -flying men who will handle
planes in the rum lino. But It re
mained for the day’s dopq story to
posts panels. For fewer posts a
shorter strip can be used or the posts
can be separated In greater distances.
- The binding post panel can be
mounted at the rear of the baseboard
by using two small brass angles of
the typo which can be obtained at
most hardware stores or which can
be made very easily at home.
One leg of the angle should- be an
inch to an Inch and a half long and is
the one which Is used to fasten the angle
to the baseboard. The other leg should
be as long as the binding post panel
is wide, in this case *4 of an Inch, and
should be provided with a hole to
correspond to the end of hole of the
binding post panel. If you cannot
obtain these angles you can make
them very easily from strips of brass.
Mounting of Binding Boat.
The binding post panel can then
be mounted at the rear of the base
board as shown in the diagram.
In mounting the panel and placing
ft in the cabinet it will be necessary
to cut a rectangular hole in the back
of the cabinet, the size of the panel.
The distance between the binding
post panel and the front panel should
be such that the binding post panel will
come fluflsh with the outside surface
o fthe back of the cabinet.
This makes a very attractive and
handy arrangement of the B mattery
binding posts which permits the bat
teries to be connected and discon
nected very easily.
