Armistice Day Address Heard Across Continent - < Loud Speaking Device Of Beil Tel ephone System Carries Presi dent’s Voice To Distant • Parts. When President Harding delivered tile funeral address over the body of the “Unknown Soldier’ ’on Armistice Day his words were heard by the largest audience the human voice ha., ever reached. His voice was carried across the continent to New York and San Francisco, where meetings coi/.- pcsed of American Legion mernbe. - and friends heard him plainly and distictly through the medium, of “Loud Speakers”. In addition, a; loud speaking system was installed in the Arlington National Cemetery and if half a million people had gath ered on the broad slopes of that beau tiful place they could have heard with perfect clearness every word of the President's address .every note of the singers, and every syllable of the sol emn committent sendees when they laid this “Unknown Hero” within his tomb. No feat of communication has ever equalled this. Never before has the transmission of sound beer, used in this way. Although the President do le ding his Inaugural Address on March 4 saw before him a vast audi ence of 200,000 or more; and although he knew that everyone in that audi ence heard his voice by means of “Loud Speakers”; although he was conscious that the spok n word had a greater power than ever before be cause he spoke to the greatest audi em.e ever gathered, upon Armistice Day, the President spoke to men and women gathered to hear him in cities that span the continent. In addition to the President’s voice, all of the solemn ceremonies, the bugles "taps”, the hymns, the words of the foreign ministers as they be stowed honors upon this soldier and the solemn burial phrases was carried surely and distinctively to the waiting legionnaires across the continent. For several weeks past organizers of the American Legion and the engi neers of the Bell System have been working together to bring about these, meetings and the transmission of i these Arlington ceremonies. Every-1 t’.vr.g that the engineers have done! has been predicted by the fact that j Armistice Day was the most solemn; minute in the history of America. Forj that reason the American Legion, vet erans, who lave a vital part in the day’., events, were asked to co-opcr r.te. Although numerous opportuni ties were offered by which the Presi dent’s speech could be directed to miscellaneous channels those in charge adopted a firm policy of sticking to the original plan and thus insuring success from the standpoint rmt only from the engineers and tech nical men but from the standpoint of the solemnity of the occasion. The opportunity for so many people i tv hear the words of the ceremony] was the gift of the Bell Telephone j system to the people of the nation. It. j is not a commercial enterprise in any i way. The engineers and experts in charge have been working on the | loud speaking system at Arlington | and across the continent and in the 1 three cities for more than a month. On Armistice Day telephone engi neers all the way across the country were on guard for twenty-four hours watching every bit of delicate equip ment. For hundreds of miles the fa mous transcontinental telephone line was patrolled by crews of linemen to guard'against possible breaks :,nd ac cident. To reach the crowds in the three cities the President’s voice pass ed over thousands of miles of wire through a great mass of the most delicate yet powerful instruments and apparatus. Much space was taken up by the hugh machinery for this great] feat of transmission and yet none of the mechanical and electrical part was seen, or interferred with the classic beauty of the amphitheatre. Complete crews of experts and engi neers operating the loud speaking system from Arlington all the way to San Francisco were out of sight so that there was nothing visible.. One of the miraculous effects of tli “Loud Speaker” is in the perfect control of the power, whereby the voice can be made to cany for a mile or more but at no point is the audi ence aware of any mechanical effect. Gr.e can stand in front of the speaker, ti m around and walk for half mile while the speech is going on, V t will not be able to detect when he passes from the zone of actual voice into the area served by the “Loud Speaker.” There is no raucous meg aphone effect, one simply hears voice as if it were coming out of the air,, a perfect voice and thoroughly recognizable.

They lapse into careless, desultory habits, or de velop a shrinking attitude. Their I faces look pinched. The blood becomes overtaxed by ] too rapid growth; and poisons from I the system take the place of strength ] giving red corpuscles in the blood, i Ked corpuscles are those little red I particles that swim in blood and i give it its color. Gradually that child | loses interest in its play. Poor blood- needs the building that i the iron in @ud’s Pepto-Mangan giv : c-s to weakened blood by increasing the number of red corpuscles, an 1 restores the blood by driving out the poisons. When the revived blood gets to work, the appetite becomes what a growing child’s should be. Your druggist has Gude’s Pepto-Mangan in liquid or tablet form.

This is a co-operative method by which the girl students get actual practical work together with the class work. For instance, in the salesmanship course the girls work one nyeek in school and one week in some large department store alternately. The stores are making their inducements to young women who wish to become saleswomen more attractive, are seeking a high class of employees. And it is the girls who have taken a course of training with the view of becoming expert in the profession who are sought for.
