Tliree-Circnit Receiver, Second to Be In stalled In Brattleboro. E. D. Whitney Las just had a three dreuit regenerative receiver installed in hi home on Green street; A similar Bet was installed some time ago by Raymond Thomas on Walnut street. Thes are said to be the only three-circuit sets in town. A set of this kind requires more adjustments of the dials to get the de sired results, but they are designed to eliminate the jamming and jumbling of selections from different stations which come in at the same time. WGY Heart! in Every State. WGY. the radio broadcasting station of the General Electric Co. at bchonec tady, X. Y.. has been heard in every state. Although programs have been regularly sent from this station for the last nine months, two states, Idaho and Nevada, had not been heard from until a few days ago. Because of the great confusion caused by so , many stations operating simultaneously, only such re plies naming artists and the time heard which accurately check with the WGY log are considered. The grenteht points reached in all di rections are: -pst Oakland. Cal.. 2.5o0 miles; Kingman. Ariz., 2,173 miles; Enterprise, Ore.. 2.170 miles : llUJyaru. asn.. I 2,1.".U miles, and Midas.

HARTNESS ASKS IN HEARS WITHOUT ANTENNAE. L. D. (ieiio of Iroctor Picks Up Stations 2.000 Miles Distant. PROCTOR, Dec. 14. If the investi gation of experts backs up what L. D. Geno of this town claims nbout his radio phone receiver, the une'of antennae, out side wires or inside receiving loops, can be dispensed with. Badio by ground Induction only is what Mr. Geno, claims for his "hook up," which is a form of Armstrong super-regenerative circuit, but without ap tenna or visible loops. Stations 2,000 miles distant have been heard clearly on this set, he claims, the signals coming in very clear, with no "static" or air noises, and sound waves from Havana, Cuba. Costa Kiea and al most all American broadcasting stations east of the Mississippi have been per fectly reproduced. Mr. Geno states positively" that he uses nothing irt place of antennae, no loog, no bedspring, no row of "iron dish rags," just a connection with the ground and a two-tube outiit of which only one tube is used ordinarily. A radiometer and 43-plate vndenser provide the tun ing adjustments, which, in the Arm t.trong type of receiver, is about 2,000 times as "sensitive ns the ordinary receiv ing set. . Several changes have been made in the Armstrong type of hook-up, so Mr. Geno savs,'but whether patentable or not he does not say until the Armstrong patents h"" been looked up. The Armstrong seis ornate readily with a small inside wire loop, about two f.lft wiiuire. but if Mr. Geno's claim is ! borne out by investigation he has gone a step further man Armstrong ana elim inated the loop entirely.

DUSTRIAL COD E Delivers Address Before Conference of Governors In Virginia SOME CENTRAL EQUALIZING BOARD Would Have It Function In Interest of l.aW Tanital and Public Labor Should Have "Sufficient Compensation , to Stimulate Spirit of Enterprise. , WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W. Va., Dec 14. Continued orderly devel opment of the nation, industrially and governmental, demands the formation of an industrial code aimed at the peace- lui settlement ol uieyuica uv - - . tal and labor, Gov. James Ilartness of ; Vermont said in an address prepared j for delivery at the conference of govern ors here today. Governor Ilartness, a- former president of the American So ciety of Engineers, is a large employer of labor, operating a machine tooV plant at Springfield, Vt. He represented the United States government in England and France during the World war at the International Aircraft conference. Governor Ilartness said that condi tions seemed to warrant "some central equalizing board that will function in the interest of labor, capital and pub lic." He asserted that government reg ulation had not been satisfactory be ?f v,nA rnr rnntrnrv to natural law and had been of a restrictive nature, and that unfair practices still existed which if not eliminated as much as possible by orderly methods would result in further political and social unrest. . , "We must come to recognize, he said, "that while it is highly desirable to obtain to the largest possible extent the private enterprise aim inuiau?, we must adopt a code of rules under which this enterprise must function. "The problem of what is just and fair pav is to Ik soivcu ny nriuiraiion uum-u on" a code that fits economic laws. .

"Even more serious than the strike is the existence of serious inequalities and of false leadership and false propa ganda. Back- of all harmful causes we find a lack of knowledge of the funda mental principles on which our economic and general weltare depends. Governor ilartness saia mai m standing of the nation ultimately would , depend upon the adoption of a success- j ful industrial code, adding: , I "Some one nation will go ahead and! ...a , .1 a. .1 1 that nation will ie tne one mat maaes the best use of its energies. To that na tion other nations will pay tribute in the market where the products are ex changed. That nation, with hostile pur pose, could suDjugate an oiaers. , Numerous questions of national and i state importance were listed for discus- j sion at the opening session today of the 14rh annual conference of governors. Activities of the Ku Klux Klan formed one of the questions for discus sion on the political program, while Governor Parker of Louisiana had an nounced that he intended to inject into the conference also the question of pro hibition enforcement. ' Following on the program the address of welcome by Governor Morgan of West Virginia and the response by Gov ernor Harde of Florida were addresses by Governor McKelvie of Nebraska on Legislation and the Farmer; by Gov ernor Ilartness of Vermont on The In dustrial Code and Human Economics; on1 n licf'iictiinn w P.rfrnnp IVnic of Minnesota, from the viewpoint, of - the West, of the proposed St. Lawrence waterway. Governor Campbell of Ari zona and Governor Ritchie of Maryland also were on today's program for fcpeeches on national and state subjects. Questions of taxation and highway con struction were among others scheduled to come up during the three-day confer ence. The subject of the Ku Klux Klan probably will be first broached when Governor Olcott ot iiregon aiscusses iv in an address at tonight's session of merica Adrift. There was a possibil ity, however, that Governor Parker, who has indicated he would -touch on this question also, would take the floor on the first day. " WEST DOLMERSTON.
