OTTAWA MEETING FAILS TO AGREE American Delegates to Radio Conference Returning With out Reaching Settlement. BY MARTIN CODEL. While American delegates to the Ra dio Conference at Ottawa are return ing without haring reached either a tentative or a final agreement on the division of the continental short waves, the case for the Radio Corporation of America is being carried to Congress. Vigorous denials of charges of “trust” and “monopoly” are being entered be fore the House committee on radio this week bv Col. Manton Davis, vice presi dent and general attorney of the R. C. A Apparently denied the right to en gage in domestic radio-telegraphv, pending the possible allotment of more exclusive continental channels to the United States, the R C. A. is charging that "persistent propaganda” and ‘ political pressure" have led the Fed eral Radio Commission to conclude that an implicit congressional man date exists to favor all others above R. C. A Col. Davis made such an assertion when he began testifying Saturday by reading a comprehensive statement in which he defended the radio corpora tion and its affiliated companies as the “creators of radio.” He told tire com mittee the oft repeated story of the formation of the R. C. A. as an inter national communications enterprise shortly after the war in order to re tain to the United States certain basic American patents, which the British Marconi people were anxious to obtain. Radio Growth Described. The mushroom and altogether un expected growth of program radio was described, and the opponents of the R. C. A. in the manufacturing phase of the industry were characterized as “a bodv of men seeking to use the inven tions of others without license." Pri marily concerned at this time with ex tending its world-wide wireless system, the only one this country has other ' than the Navy’s. Col. Davis maintained that “the propagandists do not even claim to represent any one connected with radio communication or radio broadcasting.” . „ .. It was apparent that, while discuss ing the manufacturing end of radio. Col. Davis was hitting back at the radio protective associations, groups of independent manufacturers organized to combat in Congress and it the courts the patent combination represented by the R. C. A. When he spoke of com munications and the alleged favoritism shown by the Federal Radio Commis sion, it was plain that he referred to the Universal Wireless Communications Co. “Who is behind this propaganda?” Col Davis asked. "Their representatives will not tell you gentlemen plainly. They are a body of men seeking to use the inventions of others without li cense. They denounce and accuse in order to build a smoke screen behind which to hide. And they seek the aid of the Government to help them. “Seeking the aid of the law, they are not willing to rely for protection upon the law, but ask that their identities may remain undisclosed lest they be brought to the bar of justice, where, though they do a business of one hun dred million dollars a year, they never theless may not be able to protect them selves.” - Message Service Barred. In communications, Col. Davis as serted that the R. C. A. has since the war carried on competition with cables and that its system now connect the United States with 30 foreign countries. This service has given the United States the supremacy in international radio, he said. Having been unable to reach an agreement for inland “pick ups” of overseas radio messages with the Western Union and Postal, both of which operates cables, the R. C. A. is now seeking short weaves to establish a domestic radio system of its own for this purpose and for competition with the wire services. “The Federal Radio Commission,’ said Col. Davis, “has declared its in tention to award to another organiza tion all the channels now at its disposal for domestic service and has indicated that the R. C. A. may be awarded no channels permitting it to enter the field of domestic telegraphy. “It is no answ’er to assert that the R. C. A. applications have not actually been denied. The R. C. A. was an ap plicant with the others and presented its application at the same time as did the others. All the facilities now avail able have been awarded, but none to the R. C. A. It is no answer to assert that as a result of negotiations with Canada other channels may perhaps be available." Remonstrated Ability. “The organization in whose interest the Federal (Radio Commission has in dicated an intention to establish a monopoly in domestic radio service,” he said, “has yet to demonstrate through service its ability technically and other wise actually to serve. We do not assert that it lacks that ability, but we do assert that no informed person in the world doubts the ability of the R. C. A. to carry on a radio telegraphic service as well as any person or organization in the world and that this has been dem onstrated not by experiments but by world-wide service successfully carried on for years. “The fact that practically every or ganization manufacturing radio de vices in America is operating under li censes and utilizing the results obtained in the laboratories of the R. C. A. group is conclusive proof that what others in America can do in radio R C. A. can equal or surpass.” said Col. Davis in conclusion. “The R. C. A. was not asked to compete in laboratory experiments, was not informed that such would be conducted, was not asked to observe or criticize experiments or to demonstrate in the laboratory or even in the field circuits what it could actually do with respect to radio com munication.” t (Copyright, 1929, by the North American Newspaper Alliance.)
