Brop.dcasting in Brazil remains to be developed, but the keen interest in radio reception on the part of coffee and rubber growers in the interior of the country is evidenced by the fact that shipments of radios, tubes and parts must frequently be made by mule transport. Radio is important to these growers because of the broadcasts of market report* In ere->s that are not reached bj railroects or telegraphs. D. C. Naval Reserve ——^_— Naval Reservists faced a brighter Summer from a training standpoint when word was received not only that the annual cruises were in prospect, but there prcbabF* would be 24 drills during the next fiscal year. | Asfistant Secretary of the Navy Hen ry Latrobe Roosevelt announced dur ing the week that the Navy Depart I ment hoped to obtain from the budget sufficient funds to hold the annual cruises and for 24 drills. This an nouncement was in line with an un derstanding that has prevailed in the ! Reserve since the orders were issued ' suspending the sea cruising schedules I and the drills that if the National ; Guard was allowed money for encamp j ments. then the Reservists would re ceive sufficient funds for similar train ! inf. Since the Assistant Secretary madt his announcement at the Navy De pal tment dispatches have bjen re ceived at the Reserve headquarters in the Washington Nav;, Yard instruct ing ttie officers to make all necessary preparations for the cruises, tenta tively scheduled to begin on July 15. 1 No details have been received as to just what dates the cruises will be held Some doubt was expressed as to whether the July 15 date applied to the local Reservists particularly, as the message was sent to the commandants of all naval districts. TOe destroyer Hamilton, tne vessel of the Atlantic Training Squadron assigned to this area, now is in the vicinity of Norfolk, and it is probable that orders will be issued to her in a short time telling when to pick up the local Reservists. It has b?en the prac tice in the past to take aboard the ship on each cruise a division of the local battalion and one frrm the Baltimore. Mri . Reseives. This rrq lires three sep arate cruise-, to be made by tlr- ship. There appeared to be a feeling that j this practice would be carried out this I year. ! There is one thing that is known. | and that is only that Fleet Reservists will be taken on the training cruises, and no substitution will be allowed of volunteers. In the past it has been the practice to fill vacancies among the Fleet Reservists by men of the vol unteer group who desired to take train ing. These latter are not required to take annual training cruises, but the department always receives many re quests from this group. The order barring substitution of volunteers for absentee Fleet Reservists, it is believed. I will prevent members of the local com : munication reserves from taking any cruises this year. It a!so was pointed I out that voluntary aviation Reservists would also b? prevented from taking ! cruises this year with pay. The order directing tne local Keserve officers to make preparations for the cruises came as a distinct surprise, al though. following the order suspending the cruises and drills, they took some hope out of the fact that the Army was going right ahead making prepa rations for the annual training en campments. Preparations had been made to get the best training possible by fixing up the armory with much I ship paraphernalia and also prepara tions for getting the most out of the launch which has been assigned here for training purposes. As soon as the Navy Department completes the training cruise schedules and the dates are announced the local Reservists will be instructed to make plans for time oft from their civilian I jobs in order to participate in these cruises. In view of the fact that the cruises were suspended last year on account of the need for governmental economy, it is expected that there will be nearly a 100 per cent attendance on the cruises. Except for short periods when the destroyer Hamilton was here for sev eral weeks the local Reservists have not had any ship training for two years. It was pointed out by those in 1 a position to know that this has se riously affected the training, particu larly the target practice. Although ar rangements were made to keep the gun crew in practice with the drill gun at the armory, it was pointed out that this is not as effective as having the men fire the big guns aboard the de stroyer. The gun crews will be given intensive training during the next sev eral weeks, in an effort to have them give a good account of themselves when they are out on the Atlantic en gaging in their regular target practice. Since the last cruises the local bat talion has been entirely reorganized, and when the outfits go out this year they will have new commanding offi cers. However, the organization of the cnli.slrd personnel has remained almost intact. Aside from the sea cruises which are to come during the ne:a i v.o months, a number of th? officers were being given training with pay this month by being callcd to active duty to perform various activities in the Washington Navy Yard and at the Re serve armory. The original orders for the cruises, issued early in the Spring, and before the suspension order was received, con templated that the cruises would begin on June 15. However, it was pointed out that the entire schedule will have to be revised, and new date* fixed. The funds for the heating; and main tenance of the armory at the Wash ington Navy Yard, it was said, have been reduc«i about 20 per cent for next year as compared with the cur rent fl?cal year. However, it was indi cated that every effort will be m:dr> to maintain the armory efficient":; on this fund, the principal cost bring for heat. Tlie fund for fuel Tor the training launch has also been cut. and it was said to be probable that there will not be any money for fuel for the nest fiscal year, and that the officers and men will have to stand the expense if they want to take the vessel out on week end framing cruises. It has been definitely determined that no allowance will be made by the Government for subsistence of boat crews while out on week end training trips. While the officers and men never received any pay for these week end training cruises, the Government has in the past paid the cost of sub sistence during the periods that the ships were on training duty. Lieut. C A. Briggs. commanding the local Naval Communication Reserve, has c.nncun.c:l (hat the ration? 1 drills have been completed. In regard to the national drills, he .said, a memorandum has been received in which it was noted that NED, the local Reserve sta tion. has been given third place in the national competition this year. How ever, he says that this may not be final. Further information is being awaited. Lieut. Briggs. in a communication to members of his command, urges that more of them take the week end cruises. He says that the boat has been equipped with a midget radio re ceiver which is mounted in the crew's quarters. While he adds that it can not be operated while the vessel is under way. due to motor noise which cannot be eliminated, it operates sat isfactorily while at anchor. The boat leaves on its training cruises at 1 o'clock on Saturday afternoon and re turns at 8 o'clock Sunday night. During these trips the boat cruises down the Potomac, and the members of the seaman branch are taught steering, piloting and given other train ing to improve their knowledge of naval work. Usually landings are made at various river points to allow the members of the crew time for recrea tion ashore. Veterans of Foreign Wars Meetings This Week. Monday: Front Lin? Post.

TO PROSECUTE 60 TEXAS STATIONS Defiance of Gsvernment Based on Asssrtion Tiiey Are Staying Within State. i Uncle Sam will take \igorous steps to wipe out 5ome «0 "outlaw" broad- j casting stations in Texas, which have ■ formed an association openly to resist the Federal Government on the ground that they are subject only to State regulation. A special session of the grand Jury has been requested at Lubbock. Texas, before the Federal District Court to prosecute the first dozen cases. The ] Federal Radio Commission is collabc- i rating with the Department of Jus tice in handling the cases, since they will serve as a test for other "boot leg" stations. All told, it is estimated that scm? 150 illegal broadcasting sta . tiens r.re under investigation in this i country. I Tli? Federal radio law prescribes that radio, as interstate commerce, is sub ject only to Federal regulation. All stations, whatever their character, must procure licenses from the radio com- ' mission, as the licensing body set up by Congress. Penalties of five years' imprisonment, $5,000 fine, or both, are prescribed for violation of this law and several convictions have been pro cured during the last three years. Most of the unlicensed Texas stations have joined a group which they call the Texas Independent Radio Advertis I ing Association. This organization an 1 r.ounced that as long as the stations, | which are of low power, do only intra | state broadcasting they are violating ; no laws or regulations and are within i their rights. | . DOUBLE CALL LETTERS ARE BEING ELIMINATED Stations Conforming- With Requests of Commission to Drop Hyphenated Calls. Double sets of call letters for single broadcasting stations are slowly but surely being eliminated from the radio rolls. Following the example of the j Canadian Radio Commission, which | recently ruled out all "phantom" calls. I the Federal Radio Commission ha, j asked all stations employing the j hyphenated calls to drop one or the ! other of them. Stations for the most part are willingly complying. Thus during the last month a dozen dual call letters were cut ou... notably KYW-KFKX. Chicago, which is now simply KYW: WGN-WLIB, Chicago, now WGN; WBBM-WJBT. Chicago, now WBBM; WENR-WBCN, Chicago, now WENR: WHEC-WABO, Rochester, now WHEC: WLB-WGMS, Minneap olis. now WLB: WNAC-WBIS. Boston, now WNAC; WORC-WEPS. Worcester, Mass.. now WORC; WPRO-WPAW, Providence, now WPRO. For the most part, few stations ever used the second set of call letters, which were usually obtained when the stations acquired other local outlets whose identities they did not care to lose entirely. The commission wants the dual calls out altogether, but chose to ask the stations to drop them vol untarily rather than pass a regulation ordering them out. Outstanding among events sponsored by the Community Center Department this week will be the fourth Summer festival at the Sylvan Theater, near the Washington Monument, Thursday eve ning. when, in co-operation with the Office of Public Buildings and Public Parks, a joint concert will be given by the United States Navy Band and the Lisa Gardiner Dancers of Washington. The band will open the festival with i a program especially arranged for this occasion and will also accompany the dancers in several of their most impor tant numbers, featuring ballet dances from "Prince Igor." by Borodin, to be danced by the ensemble, and a succes sion of solo and duo numbers. Mrs. Edith H. Hunter, pianist, *111 accom pany many of the dances on the pro gram. The Community Center Department has placed tickets for chairs at the Syl van Theater on public sale at 25 cents each at the A. A. A., the Willard Hotel and the Washington Hotel, with the ; understanding that in case of a post-! pened performance, due to inclem?n; ; weather, tickets will be good for the i performance when given. I Community Centers Plans are being made for the opening of six centers throughout the city on July 5 for the Summer months. Out door recreation will be stressed by the department at these centers, and when ever possible will be free to the public. Eckington Recreation Center will bs open Tuesday and Friday evenings dur ing July and August. On these evenings there will be free band concerts, com munity singing, demonstrations by com munity groups and moving pictures at the stadium of McKinley High School. Other activities at this center will include drama instruction for adults and young people and social dancing each Friday evening, also rhythm and tap dancing and drama instruction for children in the mornings. Central High School swimming pool will open July 5. Every afternoon and evening except Saturday and Sunday the pool will be open from 1 to 4:30 o'clock. The pool will also be open dur ing the evening hours on the same week days. The stadium and tennis courts will be open. East Washington Center will open July 5 for athletic and other recre ational events featured for the out of doors. Banneker Recreation Center is open. The unemployment relief work con ducted at this center since last Fall i~> expected to be carried on throughout the Summer. Garnet Patterson Center j p. ill open in July and Dunbar Center is | already in use for athletic and rrc- j reational activities each week day aft- j rrnoon. Swimming is being taught by in experienced instructor at Durbar. • Geese Hatched in Captivity.

BY MARTIN t'ODEL. EXCEPT for fancier cabinet de signs. particularly the note of modernism being introduced into the small low-priced mod els. the radios to be offered on the market this Fall and Winter are just about thp same kind of sets being sold now. Unlike previous years, this month of Juno has brought with it no r*reat radio trade .'hows for prelim inary displays t;> dealers of the new models to b? marketed during the forthcoming . eas.n. although plans are afoo" for the usual public shews in New York and other cities this Fall. Nor are the set-makers trying to outdo one another these days in their claims for this gadget or that. The simple fact seems to be that the aver age radio of today, excluding the ex ceedingly cheap set that cannot pos sibly be engineered to embrace the tone ranges and reproduction of mod ern broadcasting, is a well-engineered product of a high standard of quality. Still Room for Changes. Net that the ultimate in radio re reivers and reception hrs been achieved. Far from i". Television is \et to come, and with it an entirely new mike-up for radio. Th?t progress is bring made in the telcvisio 1 laboratories is well kr.c^n t"> insiders. Indeed, certain leaders of the industry aver that a form of television probably wou'.d be ready for the market today if it were not for general business conditions. Those who have seen the experi mental television broadcasts, particu larly on the newly harnessed ultra short waves that allow for more wave lengths and better delineated repro ductions of moving images, insist that television today is just about at the same stage that crystal radio reception was about a dozen years ago They predict a faster development and ac ceptance of television than of sound broadcasting, once it emerges from the laboratory. To the credit of the leading tele vision experimenters it should be added that they insist upon pursuing their researches quietly and in such a way as not to arouse false expectations for the immediate future. Government radio authorities, in the meantime, have re peatedly warned the public against •wildcat" speculation in television stocks, which are still being offered in some parts of the country by promoters who have not even been licensed by the Federal Radio Commission to ex periment with television wave lengths. Industry Fairly Stable. If the manufacturing of radio sets and tubes is a sadly depressed indus try, it is at least a relatively stable one today. The radio makers are hoping, along with nearly all other inaustrialists. fcr the business recovery that will brin? greater purchasing power to the masses. In the mean time they have round a fair market in replacement sets and tubes, extra small sets for the home and automobile ra dios. Oddly enough, almost as many ra dios are being sold today as were sold during the beem years which made radio an S85C.000.003 business in 1929. employing more than 300.000 workers in hundreds 01 plants throushout the country. Interest in broadcast recep tion apparently is not on the wane. But the demand is not for qurlity re ception, albeit the techni al ru.-'Kv of broadcasting performances h aehicvcd a high state. Small Sets Popular. By far the preponderance of pur chas'ng of radio se_s is concentrated on the tmall models, vtrio'.'sly slylcd in the trade as midgets, cigr.r box or p^wee models. Fully 73 per cent of the sets now bring sold fetch the re tailer less than $50; some sell as low as S10. Sometimes these cheap set# replace high-priced but obsolete cabi net models bought in the days when people had money to spend. Hundreds of thousands are being bought as aux iliary sets for the bed room or the spare room. It is estimated in the trade that fully 3.000,000 radios will be sold this year. But no one ventures to assert that the tiny sets can be accepted as permanent fixtures. POLICING WAVE LENGTHS MADE EASIER FOR U. S. High precision short wave radio re ceiving sets, capable of tuning in all wave lengths from 1.500 to 20.000 kilo cycles 1200 to 1.5 metere). have been ordered by the Federal Radio Com mission to be employed for policing the wave lengths on which ship, coastal, aviation, amateur, television, police and various other types of radio stations operate. Ten of the instruments have been ordered for delivery by July 1. one each to be used at the official monitoring stations at Boston, Baltimore. Atlanta. Portland. Oreg.: San Pedro. Calif.; San Francisco and Grand Island. Nebr. One will be used at Washington headquarters and two will be held as spares. Replacing obsolete equipment that re quired complicated multiple tuning methods, the new instruments can tune in a particular wave length by the simple twist of a single dial. The commission's engineers and field men propose to use them to detect violations of regulations, including possibly the further detection of radio stations used by rum runners for signaling between land and shore. The commission re cently also ordered II new precision broadcast receivers and four recording Instruments to check broadcasting sta tion operation and to gather evidence about the program content of stations against which complaints have been lodged. Brig. Gen. Rufus H. Lane, adjutant and inspector; Lieut. Col. D. M. Ran dall. assistant adjutant and inspector, and Lieut. Col. Edward A.
