Even If You Lose Your Head Don't Hunt for It. It was his first call on a girl he hail met recently at a dance. She smiled cheerfully as she led htui into the parlor and introduced him to her parents, who voiced their welcome. ll' started to unbutton his overcoat. A button Hew off. It rolled beneath the piano. He stooped in a vain attempt to regain tho lost button. "Never mind," said the girl's mother. "I'll get you another button." Unheeding, he walked to a hall rack, seized an umbrella and. unmindful of another admonition from the girl's mother, poked the umbrella under the piano ami drew forth the button to gether with a varied assortment of pins, paper scraps, cobwebs and what-not. Embarrassed, he arose ami saw the girl's mother staring coldly. The girl's father obtained a dustpan, into which he hurriedly swept the debris. The caller, still more embarrassed, suggested to thc girl : "Aren't you ready for a ride now?" And she replied: "Yes jes let's go." When seated in his car he remem bered having left his gloves on the I ia.-to while he searched for the button. He returned to the house and told the girl's mother he had" forgotten the gloves. The woman silently thrust the gloves into the hands of their owner, then slammed the floor. The gitl was visibly ill at ease on the ride that night. So was he. After n half hour she said she must "be home early." And as they parted on the poreh did he ask for a return date? No. Appropriate Selection. .

New -System with Finder on Iioartl Ship Which Receives Shore Signals. The department of commerce has de veloped a system of radio direction find ing to be applied to navigation. in which thi direction tinder is located on board ship and receives signals trans mitted from a. nolio station on shore. This development has been carried mi by the bureau of standards and the bureau of lighthouses in co-operation. Throe radio transmitting stations have been es tablished on light-vessels and light houses at the approach to New York harbor, and a fourth is in progress of installation on the San Francisco light vessol. The thre stations in commis sion have been giving very satisfactory service. The location of the direction finder on board ship instead of on shore has a number f advantages, of which the more important are: The navigator of the ship can himself tske the radio hearings, the ship's position CJtn be de termined promptly, and hearings may be taken as often as desired. Th.i radio direction tinder is particu larly useful iu times of fog or poor visi bility, and in. case of shipwreck it may be the means of saving many lives. Studies of radio direction finding ap paratus have been made by the bureau of standards recently. Due important consideration which has received care ful attention is the distortion effect" Which may result from flic presence of adjacent objects, such as ships. and methods of eliminating errors in tho ob served radio bearings as the result of K'.piaru, ununited sotliat it may U rotated tinder 011 board ship nujj: be calibrated in much the same way as the ship's magnetic cotniass. , A common type of direction finder for installation on ships consists of a coil of 10 turns of insulated copper wire wound on a wooden frame four feet snare, mounted so that it may be rotated about a vertical axis. The radio direc tion tinder as used by the department of commerce involves a iiumls-r of unique features. It is designed to be installed over the ship's binnacle carry ing the magnetic compass card. 011 which the radio - hearing are read di rectly. An additional scale is attached to the top of the binnacle and marked with the corrections obtained by cali brating the radio direction tinder. Bv these maus the radio liearings are obtained in a simplo and direct man ner, the only operations necessary being the adjustment in the radio receiving t-et and the rotation of the direction tinder coil.
