Pa'WIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIHIIIIIIIIIIIIID'A I THE CALENDAR I By MARTHA B. THOMAS Ks THE calendar ! a curious hu tfj man document when, you jj? stop to think about it. Just an easier way of reckoning than k the counting of moons and suns, 3 and a very important matter it 15 is, too. A calendar is the direc- tor of man's affairs, the "con- f suiting engineer" always to be ;5 interviewed before arranging 5 life, whether it is a dinner or business appointment, a siege j with the dentit or a trip 5 abroed. It is the grand refer- j(5 ence book: a silent, inanimate i thing composed of twelve pages f' or sections .with black marks on ff them. rrobaDiy no otner book, larire or small, has as many "5 readers or commands the re- fti spectful interest enjoyed by its if unimpeachable reputation. j. t(i 1912, Western Newnpsper Vnlon ) ,5 'I AM YOUR TELEPHONE OPERATOR" B-R-R-R! The wind was howling. "Any cars running, Cap?" asked Bill ings of the copper on the corner. "Not a wheel turning. Guess you'll have to go down afoot this morning." "Well, I'll try it." And Billings started down the street. The wind was in his face. It was bitter cold, and the swirling snow seemed to attack him angrily. Half way down the block he fell in beside a youngster headed in the same direction. "Pretty tough going," he volunteered "Yep," she replied. They trudged along together. "Say, this is fierce," he said, with his head buried in his overcoat. "Not so good. But it might be worse," 6he smiled back at him. Another hundred yards or so they fought the gale. Then Billings stopped her. "Say, sister, this is no day for you to be out. My office will be practically closed and so will yours. There's no need of our going through any more of this." "Oh, I can make it alright." Again they started. But the drifting snow and the wintry blasts made progress difficult. "Now, look here, sister," said Billings, taking her by the arm, ''What's the use? I'm going back. I can do my business by telephone." She smiled at him. She waved her hand cheerily. "Nope,", she said, "I'm on my way. I'm your telephone operator." SAFEGUARDING THE PRESENT USE OF RADIO EQUIPMENT AND PLANNING FOR ITS USE IN THE FUTURE Under the Chairmanship of N. F. Brady, President of the New York Edison Com pany, the Radio Policy Sub-Committee of the Public Policy Committee of the Nation al Electric Light Association has under taken an exhaustive study of the wired wireless situation, and, in fact, of the en tire radio field, in an effort to establish uniform policy for electric light and power company properties with respect to the radio art. The Committee holds that electric light and power companies of the country are interested in radio from two angles: 'first, radio as it is known today; and radio as it may be in future. It feels that to day's problems arc comparatively simple, in most cases being purely mechanical or technical ones dealing with the safeguard ing of electric light and power company transmission lines and distribution systems from interference and the simultaneous guarding of radio amateurs from injury or possible death, and the safeguarding of property from damage through thought less or careless installations of antennae or unwarranted uses of electric light or power lines. With respect to future developments the Committee is now collecting data and having experiments made by leading manufactures in order to find answers to the following problems and questions: "Will the deveolpment of 'carrier current' make possible the use of existing light and power lines for purposes never before contemplated? "Will the transmission line serve also as a telephone and control channel, to communicate with the distant station and to operate its equipment? "Will the streetlights of the future be controlled by carrier current trans mitted over the distribution mains? "Will the radio set of the future op erate on the lighting circuits in the home and receive its impulses over the same circuits by carrier current?" A "carrier current" acts like win-less but goes over wires. It runs over the same lines that furnish power, yet does not in any way interfere. Any number of relays can be operated individually without bothering others. It's always fierce weather when a fellow und a dentist get together. 'Tls better to have seen a baseball game .through a knot hole than never to have seen It at all. Of all sad words of tongue or pen, the saddest are these: MI gotta stay home today, fellows."
