5-ELEMEMT TUBE TO CUT RADIO COST ‘‘Twin Screen Grid’ An nounced as Promising Dou ble Efficiency. 8r the Associated Press. NEW YORK. January 23.—A new radio tube, hailed as forecasting a re-' duetion in receiver cost by cutting down | at least one-half the number of tubes required, was announced yesterday. It is the “twin screen grid” pentode, or five-element tube, for house current receivers, having more than double the efficiency of the four-clement A. C. j screen grid tube to which the public was introduced a year or so ago. Engineers said that the tube, a de velopment of the Ceco laboratories at Providence. R. 1., would make possible the designing of a three or four tube receiver that would be equivalent in output to some present-day sets con taining up to eight tubes. Great Advance Seen. “The pentode,” Ernest Kauer. presi dent, summed up, "will represent as great an advance in radio as did the three-element tube back in 1906. “The public has been asking for re- | reiving sets which do not employ so j many tubes. This development makes j it possible to build sets which will sat isfy that demand. Bringing more sim jflicity into radio manufacture and re- i ceiver operation and maintenance, it will reduce manufacturing costs, ma- j terial costs and, therefore, costs to the I radio public. It means fewer tubes per lamily. but a great many more families can own receivers, due to the reduced cost.” The tube resembles the screen grid, except that there is an extra connec tion at the side of the base for the second screen grid, making a total of seven. The base has five prongs, with another connection at the top of the glass bulb. Like the screen grid, it con tains a screen for the plate, with the second screen between the regular or control grid and the cathode or elec tron emitter. Much Greater Amplification. Greatly increased amplification is ob tained through the insertion of the second screen, which lowers the plate impedance, one of the determining fac tors in the efficiency of a tube. Com pared with the plate impedance of a _ V To Our Patrons We came'to Washington twenty-five years ago and I opened the third of our retail establishments in a building at 734 Fifteenth Street, N. W. Today we occupy the six story building at 709 Twelfth Street Nr W., a location convenient to our many patrons and one that affords proper display of our goods. During these pleasant business years we have established a reputation for fine things and have been privileged to plan and execute the furnishing of many fine homes in and near Washington. • We have made many friends.

This factor alone, the engineers said, made possible closer matching of the tubes external imped ance. such as tuning coils, with at tendant increased voltage amplification. To determine the efficiency of the tube, its designers contructed a test set containing one of these tubes as a radio frequency amplifier, a power detector and a power output tube. The result was very satisfying, they said. In an other test they replaced the two screen grid tubes in an ordinary receiver with the pentodes and got amplification four times greater than was possible wdth screen grids. The pentode, they said, may be used either as a radio frequency amplifier or as a detector. While point ing out that the idea of a five-element tube is not new. engineers said, its prac tical application has not been attempt ! ed heretofore in America. - m APARTMENTS BLAMED FOR LEAN MEAT DEMAND Institute of Packers Say Fat Is Crowded Out of Modern Dwellings. By the Associated Press. CHICAGO, January 23.—The apart ment house, blamed for everything from increase in divorces to the rise of the delicatessen, was presented with an other Indictment last night. Because of apartments. Homer Davison of the Institute of Meat Packing told the Na tional Live Stock Producers’ Association here, the public wants lean meat. There | is no room for fat or for keeping left overs to be made into hash or soup, he j explained. This reacts most on swine raisers, he i said, because swine are fed on corn, which makes fat, and they can’t be i fed on something that makes lean meat, because they are raised mostly in the : com belt and com is the cheapest, most j convenient food. Cattle and sheep raisers have solved their problem, he said, by sending lambs and calves to the slaughter house. The only solution is to breed a type of hog that can eat corn and still be lean, he said. Bees’ Drunk Ties Up Line. Traffic on the railway line parsing through Karlovac, Serbia, was tied up recently by a huge swarm of bees on a honey drunk. Derailment of a freight car caused a broken honey jar to release its contents on the ground. Bees at tracted by the sweet made the air blacker than during a thunderstorm and forced the wrecking crew to flee. Not until 12 hours later, when all the sweet had been consumed, could the men re sume their work of putting the car back on the tracks. THE EVENTNC, STAB. TVASHIXfITON. P. C.. THURSDAY. JANUARY 23. J 930. PURSE-SNATCHERS ATTACK TWO WOMEN One Escapes With Pocketbook of Miss Lydia A. Lawrence and Other Flees Empty-Handed. Two colored pocketbook snatchers j last night attempted to rob unaccom- j panied women of their purses and one succeeded. One grabbed the pocket ! book of Miss Lydia A. Lawrence of i 1024 Fourth street northeast, in the 600 j block on K street, and made off with i about S 3 in cash, an automobile oper -1 ator's permit, keys and papers. A few minutes earlier a colored man attempted to rob Miss Jane Fellows of 1118 Euclid street, of her purse on Euclid street, between University place i and Fifteenth street, but missed and ' ran. Miss Fellows gave police of the eighth precinct his description. Mary Green of 4838 Kansas avenue reported to detective headquarters yes terday afternoon that her pocketbook containing sll in cash and several valuable papers had been stolen from an office in the Homer Building. Duplicate keys afforded burglars en trance to two homes where wearing ap parel valued at $225 was stolen. The heaviest loser was Louts R. Lautier, colored, whose apartment at 1731 Wil lard street was entered and six suits, a dressing gown, a bathrobe, scarf and neckties worth $l5O were taken. Laverne Sportford's home at 607 Rhode Island avenue was entered in the same manner and clothing valued at $75 was taken. “NO-WHIPPING” SCHOOL DESTROYED BY FLAMES Texan Deft $30,000 for Structure at Which Corporal Punish ment Was Banned. By the Associated Press. GREENWOOD. Ark., January 23. Greenwood’s new “no whipping” high school, built from a bequest by a foe of corporal punishment, was in ruins yes terday, after a fire or undetermined origin. The one-story brick structure was dedicated with impressive ceremonies last Armistice day, which was designated as “Alexander Day,” in honor of the late E. S. Alexander of Dallas, Tex., who bequeathed $30,000 for its construction. Alexander was a merchant in Green wood and a member of the school board for 30 years. As such he bitterly opposed corporal punishment in schools. Dead Peer’s Diary Is Ordered Sealed For Half Century Viscount Esher, Power ! Behind British Throne, Was Kitchener’s Aide. ! By the Associated Press. LONDON, January 23.—Viscount | Esher, 77, who was for many years one | of the most noted and influential of 1 British peers, died suddenly yesterday. He left a war diary in the custody of t’ British Museum to be kept sealed until 1981. Since the viscount was closely associated with royalty and was the representative in France of Lord Kitchener when the latter ruled the war office, his diary one day is expected to furnish most important historical matter. The successor to the title is the Honorable Oliver Sylvain Baliol Brett, who married Antoinette Heckscher of New York, who thus becomes Viscountess Esher. The late viscount was a close per sonal friend of King Edward and King George, so close that he was sometimes called “the power behind the throne.” PIONEER LUMBERMAN IS DEAD IN ONTARIO Adam W. Graham, 82, Was Taken Prisoner With Father in Red River Rebellion. By the Associated Press. ST THOMAS, Ontario, January 23. —Adam Wilson Graham, 82, a lumber man in Minnesota in the early seven ties, and a leader of one of the United States surveying gangs in Oklahoma when the first Indian territory was be ing opened to settlers, died at his home here Tuesday night after a heart at tack. Mr. Graham was a survivor of the Red River Rebellion of 1869-70. They were taken prisoners by the rebels and thrown with 44 other prisoners into two squalid rooms. A diary kept during his imprisonment in Fort Garry has been bequeathed to the Elgin Historical So ciety.

By the Associated Press. BUENOS AIRES. January 23.—More than 400 tourists from Buenos Aires were safe today aboard the Argentine war transport Vicente Fidel Lopez off the bleak shores of Tierra Del Fuego • Land of Fire) after the grounding of their ship, the Monte Cervantes, on a rock in the straits of Magellan. The Monte Cervantes, which has a German tramp designation, and is own r d by the Hamburg-South Amerira linq. went aground in one of the chan nels through which Magellan sailed on the first circumnavigation of the globe. There were no casualties. Only the officers remained aboard. It was im possible to predict the fate of the steamer. A radio message to the ship’s local agents said the ship grounded at 1 p m. yesterday in Beagle Channel near , Eclaireurs Light House. The Monte Cer- I vantes left Buenos Aires January 15 I with 1,100 tourists for the Magellan Straits, and the Southern Argentine Coast, expecting to return about the end of January.
