TUNE IN BEYOND
BROADCAST BAND Radio Listeners Experiment With Picking Up New Stations. t BY MARTIN CODEL. AS ALL-WAVE radios gradually displace conventional broad cast receivers, whose tuning ranges are generally confined to the regulation broadcasting bard of wave lengths between 550 and 1.500 kilocycles, attention Is focusing more and more on what the listener can tune in "beyond the broadcasting band." Already the short waves are bringing in a choice of several hun dred foreign broadcasting stations more or less regularly, while about two dozen more American short-wave broadcasting stations are in regular operation, usually as simultaneous ad juncts of ordinary stations. Banking on an ultimate 100 per cent listenershlp above 1.500 kilocycles, where the short waves begin, two ex perimental broadcasting stations au thorized by the old Radio Commission are now in regular operation in the recently widened band of 1,500-1.600 kilocycles. Both report good reception even on old radios whose limits were hitherto regarded as confined to 550 1,500 kilocycles. Newest of Station*. The newest of these regular stations "just beyond the broadcasting band" 13 W1XBS. It is operated by the Waterbury (Conn.) Republican and American, using 1,000 watts on 1.530 kilocycles. Its opening follows the beginning of operation several months •go of W2XR, New York, operated with 1,000 watts on 1.550 kilocycles by John V. L. Hogan. the noted radio en gineer. who was the Inventor of single dial tuning. It is somewhat too early to gauge the importance and \a!ue of these stations, but the radio world is watch ing the stations being started in this new band of waves with intense inter est. First, they are pioneering a new range of frequencies. Secondly, oper ating on 20-kilocycle paths instead of the usual 10 kilocycles, they are test ing so-called high-fldellty ' transmis sion and reception which is expected to open up avenues of improved na turalness and realism of radio program reproduction. In fact, it was to encourage ex perimentation with high fidelity that the old Radio Commission cleared the 1,500-1,600-kilocycle band for new broadcasting services. It is well known among engineers and mu sicians that the best radio reception today does not quite equal what one hears in the concert auditorium where the "real thing" is presented. The question is whether the average listener, whose ears may be satisfied with something a trifle less than the real thing, will appreciate high fidelity with its full tonal range of 8, 9 or 10 octaves, instead of the • or 6, to which he Is accustomed. Other Stations Authorized. In the belief that radio should strive for absolute perfection, and in the confident expectation that within a few years all radio sets will be able to tune in to 1,600 kilocycles, if not beyond, the operators of the stations in the new 1.500-1.600 band are pioneering these new waves with high hopes. Besides the Waterbury and New York stations, others have been authorized and will be built in Kansas City and Bakersfleld. Calif. Authority to build three more such stations is also being sought the applicants being D. E. Replogle, seek ing 1,570 kilocycles In Boston; A. R, Montgomery, seeking 1,530 kilocycles in Findlay, Ohio, and General Tele vision Corp., seeking 1,570 kilocycles With 1.000 watte in Boston. The Replogle and Montgomery ap plications are scheduled for hearings before the Federal Communications Commission December 17. The other Boston applicant, having once been rejected, has been advised it must W'ait at least a year to renew its ap plication under the F. C. C. rules. The commission demands that the applicants be technically and finan cially qualified to build and operate such stations and requires that they show a definite plan of research and experimentation. The stations are permitted to carry sponsored pro grams during such experiments; in deed, the Waterbury station is now a member of the new American Broadcasting System network. Gratifying Result*. That the hopes residing in these new broadcasting channels are al ready being realized is indicated by a report from Mr. Hogan based on nearly four moths of test operation of his W2XR. He states that his men have surveyed reception in the New York territory among people owning 445 different types of receiving sets, ranging from obsolete crystal sets to ultra-mod ?rn coasoles of the all wave variety. He reports that 70 per cent of all the radios can tune up to his channel of 1,550 kilocycles and r SPORT FANS IN ENGLAND LEARN BASE BALL BY AIR World Scries Broadcast Shows Game Differs From '"Rounders." Dean Incident Puzzling. Broadcasting of the world series has tended to clear up in the minds of many English sport ians the differ ence In base ball and their own popu lar game known as rounders, which is somewhat similar. This is revealed in the hundreds of letters received by General Electric as the result of its short wave stations W2XAP and W2XAD carrying the complete story of each game to foreign countries. There was one Incident in the series, however, which caused some fans tc wonder. It 4*as the accident to "Dizzy" Dean, when he was hit in the head by a thrown ball when running to second base. In rounder.? a player may be put out by the ball being thrown to the base ahead of him. as In base ball, or if hit with the ball from the hands of an opposing player before be reaches the base. POSTHUMOUS RADIO PATENTS ALLOWED Two posthumous patent grants to the late C. Francis Jenkins, Wash ington television inventor who died recently, have been announced by the United States Patent Office. One patent covered a two-signal broadcasting system and the other a radio synchronizing system. Limited rights to both patents, it was stated, have been assigned to the Radio Corp. of America. Among other Washington radio in ventors. Louis A. Oebhard has been granted a patent on a frequency con trol apparatus, rights to which he has assigned to Wired Radio, Inc., New York. Other Washington radio patent grants were as follows: Ross Gunn. alternating current inductor compass; Edward O. Hulbcrt, polar ization photometer; Morris W. Askin. radio plural program receiving sys tem; Dr. A. Hoyt Taylor, signaling system control, and James E. Parker, multiple wave detection and trans mission apparatus. To Paul S. Edwards of Fort Meade, Md.. and Constantin D. Barbulesco of Dayton, Ohio, the Patent Office has also lssuècl a patent covering a new radio receiving system. AD FIRM OFFERS CUP FOR GOOD ANNOUNCING To the advertising world interested in radio broadcasting, and especially ί to radio announcers, the announce ! ment has been made that Batten, ; Barton, Durstine & Osborn will an nually give "The B. B. D. O. Cup for ! Good Announcing." "By good announcing," said Roy S. Durstine. vice president and gen eral manager of the firm, "we mean ; sincerity, accurate diction, natural ness, persuasiveness, a lack of man j nerisms and an absence of those curi : ous inflections which belong to an J unknown language in a world which I doesn't exist. "Somehow there has grown up a technique in announcing which, we believe, is exasperating to the public, annoying to the sponsors of broad casting programs and detrimental to the future of radio. There are many announcers who have refused to let themselves be drawn into this style of announcing and it is to .encourage them and to beguile others away from the stilted, hot-potato school of broadcasting that we are offering this cup as a modest protest and a small indication of what we believe to be the general preference among the public and those concerned with pro ducing radio programs " The first award will be made short ly after January 1, 1935, and there after each year at that time. that 90 per cent of all new radios now being marketed can do likewise. If this is true of the 1.550-kilocycle ! channel, the percentages should be even higher for Waterbury's 1,530 channel. Whether the stations will be listened to manifestly depends upon the quality not only of reception, but of their programs. Mr. Hogan's ex periments are proving that well over half the radios now in use, whether old sets or new ones, can secure sat isfactory reception. It now appears to be only a matter of time and the inevitable displacement of old radios in the homes by, new ones before these wave lengths* will become as in tegral a portion of the broadcasting spectrum as the 96 other wave lengths between 550 and 1,500 kilo cycles. And one of the best features— from the point of view of the regu lators of radio here in Washington— of the newly opened wave band is that the three high-fidelity channels can be duplicated in many parts of the country without interference be tween the stations operating on them, thus opening up the prospect of new stations in many more communities that may need them.

Ntw rntt^INU KKUUtSS IS BOON TO CALIFORNIA CANNED FRUIT INDUSTRY _ (Continued From First Page ) During the Summer season the I work was extended to include various deciduous fruits. At the beginning of the season It was discovered that pulp from soft ripe apricoU mixed with sugar sirup and quickly frozen at a low temperature made a very satisfactory and tasty product. This frozen material retained the natural flavor and color of the fresh fruit and possessed a surprisingly smooth tex ture. Considerable fruit too ripe for the higer grades of canning was found to be the best for freezing. Encouraged by the poaalbility of developing a new frozen dessert from the cheapest, but best tasting fruit, most of the season was spent in pulping and freezing all varieties obtainable. The pulps were mixed with various strengths and proportions of sugar sirups and frozen. Nineteen kinds of fruit, includ ing apricoU, blackberries, cherries, grapes, nectarines, peaches, pears, pineapples, plums, prunes, raspber ries, strawberries and young berries, were prepared. The pulp is prepared by pitting and grinding the fruit and then pass ing it through a sieve to remove the skin and fiber. After a pulp of uni form consistency is secured sugar sirup is added. Then the mixture is stirred sufficiently to insure an even mixture, poured Into containers and frozen quickly. The uses for the frozen fruit pulp are several. If frozen quickly at a low temprature it has a texture smoother than most Ice cream and can be served as a frozen fruit dessert. De frotsed. It may be used as fruit flavor bases for Ice cream and rfherbets and also as a dressing for ice cream sun daes. It may even find its way into the culinary art in making puddings, shortcakes and the like. A public service patent has been applied for on the pulping and freez ing process. Couldn't Attend Self.

DAILY SHORT STORY SCARtET DANNY His Sister Helen Was the Most Beautiful Girl in Town and Ted MacLean Set Out to Woo Her. BY F. Β MrWHORTER. TED MacLEAN, the mast pop ular young man in Barlow Springs, and his friend, George Rogers, were hav ing a late cup of coffee at the cor ner drug store. "I tell you, George, a clever young fellow can have any girl he wants. It's all a matter of tech nique.·* "That's what you say, Ted, but what do you mean by tech nique?" George asked appealingly. "The stuff that puts you over with the girls. Look at me. Did you ever hear of me being turned down on a rl ο f η Ο Μη eir I Τ know how to handle women. They never cold-shoulder me—and do you know why?" "No." "Because they know there's a dozen other girls that would be glad to have their chance. Take Doris, for instance. When she came back from school you and Jim called her up every day I waited until I was good and ready and then I didn't even have to ask her for a date, she sent me a bid to the club dance." "Well, that's just one." "What about Lucille? Didn't she tell you she wouldn't go out with me if X was the last man on earth? And did she fall?" "She went out with you, yes." "There you are! Listen, I can go to the telephone now and get a date with any girl in town." "Most any girl?" George amended. "Any girl." "How about Helen Harvey?" "Well, I haven't met her yet. But X will." "Sure—you will! A guy with your nerve Is bound to meet her. I saw you yesterday trying to horn in when she and her mother were talking to Mrs. Simms. Did I laugh when they turned around and walked away with out even seeing you!" "I don't think she really knows who I am yet," Ted explained. "But I'll meet her. I've already started to work on her little brother Danny." "You mean the little mug that made faces at you yesterday when you tried to give him a nickel?" George asked. "Yes. That's Danny. Of all the disagreeable kids I ever met he is the worst. Has a disposition like a cop—bet he goes around pinching babies just for fun." "Too bad a nice girl like Helen has to have such a mean little brother." "Well—she likes him," Ted sighed, "so I guess I'll have to put up with him." All the way out to the ball park Ted thought about Helen. Prom the first day he saw her his interest in other girls had waned. The ball game was listless and Ted's interest wandered. During the seventh inning "stretch" he noticed that sev eral people, a few rows down, re mained standing, hovered about a small figure. With a start he rec ognized Danny. He made his way to him. "What's wrong." he asked. An older man, standing near, answered, "Some kid's made himself sick on soda pop, I guess. Know him? Better get him home out of this sun." All the way to Helen's house Ted had visions of her gratitude for his (solicitous care of her little brother. Their meeting would be no ordi nary introduction. It would be the dramatic begin ning of a beautiful friendship. How he would enjoy telling George all ► about it! Mrs. Harvey fluttered about them at the door and Insisted on mlline the doctor. Ted carried Danny inside and looked inquiringly about, but Helen was no where to be seen. "You've been so kind. How can I ever thank you?" Mrg. Harvey smiled. "Glad to be of service, Mrs. Har vey." The doctor examined Danny briefly and asked a few questions. Then he nodded his head and turned to ward Ted. "Well, Ted. this looks bad for you." "Bad for me? What do you mean?" "I mean our little friend here has scarlet fever and I shall have to quarantine you with the rest of the family." Quarantine? With the rest of the family? Suddenly Ted grinned. Des tiny was certainly performing to a ninety. He would scarcely have dared hope for days upon days in Isolation with a girl as lovely as Helen. "But, doctor." Mrs. Harvey was protesting, "this young man only brought Danny home from the ball park. Surely you can make an ex ception In his case." The doctor was «bout to reply, but Ted Interrupted. "My dear Mrs. Harvey, rules are rules, you know. I wouldn't think of trying to break quarantine. I won't mind at all. I assure you. I can take care of Danny for you: that will relieve you and your daughter." At the mention of his name Danny sat up weakly and made another face. Mrs. Harvey's manner was puzzled. "Well, I really don't know what to say. Such neighborliness sort of— well—overwhelms me." "Oh, I'm sure any one would be glad to help out under the circum stances, Mrs. Harvey." Ted answered. He looked about uneaiilv. Strange that Helen had not heard all the commotion and come in. "H—hadn't you better tell your daughter of our arrangement?" he asked finally. ' "Why. yes. of course. I'll phone her at once." said Mrs. Harvey. "Phone her?' 'echoed Ted vacantly. "Yes. Isn't is fortunate that she left only last night for a month's visit in the city?" (Copyright. 1934.)
