This pro vided for two stages of radio frequen cy amplification and two of audio, making the set the equivalent of a J™''" ""V'"!'' 0n * t îî in * tü *» Ü, : J that was to look up a diagram fo the simplest reflex set—a single-tube re flex receiver employing a crystal de lector. Here, however, it was neces sary to digress a moment to explain why crystal detectors are usually pre ferred in reflexes. Because there is such intensive use made of the tubes in a reflex set, the quieter detector is the better. Crystals, being quiet in operation, are accordingly preferred, What worried Smith most with the single-tube reflex diagram was that neutrodyne which employs five tubes. the audio frequency process seemed to come first, judging from the odd posi tion of the earphones. Smith had been accustomed to seeing the earphone in the plate circuit, or at least beyond the detector. ! "Reflexing is a simple enough pro-1 cess," I told him, "but the method of arranging the various units is ingen What you really do in the simp-1 lous. lest reflex set is to puss the tuned frequency current through the tube as an amp iifl e r. Then you pass it througi a radi „ frequency transformer, thru t ^e crystal detector and then through an aud i 0 transformer.

Smith went home to his radio set that evening with considerable more respect for the men who originally thought out all this, and he began to understand why the true radio fan wants to build a set of his own, even if he has a manufactured one.

Take away the element ere so of haste and anxiety and In II* plaça put carefully thought-out menu*, well planned and easily prepared, and homa dinner* will again regain their high favor with the working houaewlfe. One of the big worries is frequently with the milk. Did It come? Is It fresh? Is It frozen? Has the milk man been paid? washed and set out? However, there la no cause for worry about milk. Why not keep a dozen can* of evaporated milk In your pantry? There are large can», equal to a quart of milk and smaller cans that will meet the lesser Are the bottle* need*.
