has a lot of hidden qualities. For one thing, it is built of material designed
to prevent echoes. Regardless of appearance, the studio must be acoustical

Facts About Early Bismarck
Resident Who Died Recent
ly Given by Brother
George Langdon Whitford, early
resident of Bismarck, who recently
died in Washington, D. C., was a
member of a family that was prom
inently identified with the early de
velopment of Bismarck and North
Dakota, according to a letter received
by The Tribune from R. O. Whitford,
Minneapolis, brother of the dead
man. *
He was the grandson of Nehcmiah
G. Ordway, first governor at Bis
marck and territorial governor at
Yankton. His father, Colonel Edward
L. Whitford, together with N. G.
Ordway and C. B. Little, organized
the Capitol National Bank which is
now the First National Bank of Bis
After attending the public schools
of Bismarck, Whitford attended the
University of Minnesota and for a
time surveyed for the Northern Pa
cific railroad in North Dakota. Later,
after graduating from George Wash
ington University at Washington he
entered the practice of law in that
city and was prominently identified
with its growth.
Whitford, whose legal residence
was In New Hampshire, was a close
personal friend and legal advisor of
Senator George H. Moses. His nom
ination for the governorship of Porto
Rico was expected until the appoint
ment of Colonel Theodore Roosevelt,
was made by the president.
Whitford leaves his widow, two
daughters, two sisters and two broth
ers and his mother, Mrs. Mabel Ord
way Whitford.
Burial was made at Warner, N. H.
In his letter, R. O. Whitford said
he was born on Rosser St., in Bis
marck, in territorial days and was
well acquainted with James Foley,
North Dakota poet who once edited
The Tribune and with Col. M. H.
Jewell, pioneer publisher of The Trib

Gives Farm Advice
Grand Forks, N. D., March 13.— (fP)
—lncreased attention to poultry,
dairy, fruit and garden produce, which
can be consumed oil the farm or sold
at local markets, was the prescrip

Friday by Dr. John Lee Courter,
member of the tariff commission.
He said the Red River Valley of

diversified farming of any valley In
the world.
Hats off to the Radio Industry!
It has acted as a life saver for a
good many thousands of Jobs dur
ing the depression.
Judging by the number of aerials
that one observes in city and coun
try, it might be thought that nearly
everyone had a radio set and that
the market had reached the satu
ration point some time ago. In
fact, this belief was
IQ Ol freely expressed in
t • many quarters.
AMFDYA Radio design and
fWIUMIn operation have made
Ar -A. rapid strides during
the past year. The
yT manufacturers of sets
Iwlg have been clever mer-
CYMWA/A r\r\ chandisers and cour
rVJKIYAKU ageous advertisers,
liinru They have not sat
IVIAnUI back, as so many have
done, and adopted a
passive resistance to dull times, the
enemy of business. They have gone
out, hot foot, after business. As
the result, the radio business has
been good, in spite of the fact that
the product is distinctly a luxury.
Philadelphia shows us what Radio
can do in the matter of employ
ment The Metal Manufacturer’s
Association of that city keeps ac
curate tabs on the fluctuation of
employment in member plants,
which represent over 70 per cent
of the total metal industry in the
area. Its records show an aver
age of SI,OOO people employed in
making radio sets and parts during
the last quarter of 1930, as com
pared with 18,000 people during the
last quarter of 1929. The peak
number of radio workers in 1930
was 29,000 against 26,500 in 1929.
Aa a result of the stimulation pro
vided by radio, employment, meas
ured in the number of workers in
the entire metal working industry
a metal working member plants of
1 kinds held up well in the Phila
delphia district. The average sum
rߣ*i.ir3?T n.S“- *“
Of course these figures are not
an accurate measure of volume of
business, because many of the
planes are working short time. But
It Is aa accurate measure of the
number of people who are still
connected with pay envelopes in
this industry.
Radio has been a big help to em
ployment in Philadelphia, and else
where as well. It lias proven that
the public will buy luxuries despite
dull times. ,

raising it. J. W. Thornton, president
of the Lions club, will present the
