Radio Tests Please Maxim Declares Spanning of Atlanta Ocean by Amateurs Is Revolutionary. SMALL APPARATUS IS USED President of the League Foresees Na tions Drawn Closer by Wireless Bonds—Amateurs Develop Super-skill. New York.—The success of amateur (Tireless operators in this country and Canada in sending signals and mes sages to Scotland in the week’s tests recently will be revolutionary in its ?ffect. on wireless communication, ac cording to Percy Hiram Maxim, presi dent of the American Radio Relay league, through which the tests were made. Amateurs had believed that some of them would crash through to the other side, but that many of them would do so night after night was al most more than they had hoped for. Use Little Power. The technical significance of the per formance lies in the ability shown to make low-powered Instruments do the work which in large commercial sta tions requires powerful apparatus. Less than one kilowatt was used by die amateurs in transmitting three sig nals over thousands of mi lek of land and sea—for some of those far in the interior of the country got across— whereas the large stations use from 100 to 200 kilowatts. In some weath er that would not check the more pow erful stations they would, of course, fail, but some of their work was done under conditions that were far from Ideal. That stations as far west as Ohio were able to reach Scotland, where Paul E. Godley, the official receiver for the league, was stationed, was due part ly to the relation, not always realized, which Britain occupies to America. The general direction from points in this country Is northeast. Signals from New England pass over the maritime provinces of Canada, and those from Denver pass over Hudson bay. Mr. Godley expressed the belief that be cause of lietter refraction and reflec tion Inland stations had ns good a chance of getting over ns North At lantic stations. This proved to be the case. Proved It Could Be Done. ••pur success is revolutionary In radio communication,*' says Mr. Maxim. “It had not been thought possible by experts that amateurs could span the ocean, and we have proved that it could be done. It means the coining of citizen communi cation between England and America, the coming of the day when the peo ple of one country can talk to one another and discuss momentous af fairs w ithout the intermediary of pub- Garibaldi’s Widow Beside His Tomb 2". fnavv jw)Vx ;•><' - - HQ- - Dnmm Franc«sco Gnrlbnldl, widow of the great Italian hero.

BRITISH LOSE OVER A BILLION Hit Hard by Strike and Boycott in India. Ghandi, Boycott Leader, Considers Violence Mortal Sin —Hie Punish ment Would Set All India Aflame. Washington.—How a slender, mild mannered man of fifty-two, who be lieves violence of any kind a mortal sin, has caused the British government more trouble than any number of revolutionists, wni described In an ad dress to the National Popular Govern ment league by Byud Hosslan. “The English government knows not what to do with this man, Mahatma Ghandi,’’ said Hosslan. “If they imprison or execute him It will set India aflame. If they allow his non-violent, non-co-operative move ment of boycotting British goods and •vervthln|g British to proceed, it will lie or governmental agencies. What this means for the development of un derstandings and harmonious i elation ship can tie better imagined than de scribed. It turns one’s thoughts to the recent discussions by Mr. Wells in his story of the ideal relationships between the peoples of the world. “It is only a matter of time when this wireless telegraph communication will be followed by telephonic com munication, and when citizens of one country may talk with the citizens of another country without any check upon their freedom of speech. “The great thing about this test is that it was done by amateurs; their money and confidence put it through. They have developed super-skill in operating and supersensitiveness in ap paratus. I think it will be a great sur prise to all the wireless men of the world, from Marconi to the experts of the great private companies. The ama teur’? apparatus has been devel oped on the basis of love for his work; It is not the perfunctory, al though skillful, performance of the hired employee.” The Radio league Is divided into several divisions covering the entire country, and there are 20,000 amateur Lands Must Be Kept at Work Chief of the Forest Service Issues Warning Against Depletion of Wood Supplies. OUR TIMBER IS RUNNING OUT More Than 80,000,000 Acres Denuded to Point of Absolute Idleness So Far as Production of Timber Is Concerned. Portland, Ore. —Forest lands not needed for agriculture must be kept at work growing timber instead of be ing allowed to lie idle. This warning was sounded by Col. W. B. Greeley, chief of the forest service, who stopped here en route io Washington, D. C., from Mather Field, Cal., where he attended the forest tire conference. “If we are to remain a nation of wood-users we must become a nation of wood growers,’’ declared Colonel Greeley, pointing out that the United States produces more than half of the entire lumber cut of the world, and uses 95 per cent of the amount “right here at home.” “The exhaustion of our timber sup- bankrupt them and overturn the ‘strategic’ center of empire in the Orient. “This month is the first anniver sary of the start of the boycott insti tuted by Ghandi, and it has already cut down English export trade to 25 per cent of its normal volume,, result ing In a cash loss of not less than $1,(XX),000,000. “If the same success attends the refusal to pay taxes, whic|l began last month, it will mean a loss of #800,000,000 per year in revenue to the government, which means collapse. John Bull is being hit in his most vulnerable spot—his pocketbook.” Hosslan described Ghandi as the most remarkable person he had ever met. He quoted Colonel Wedgewood, a member of parliament, as saying: “Ghandi is the only man In the world whose name can be mentioned with that of Jesus Christ without blasphemy.” “Although a trained lawyer,” said MONUMENT TO RABELAIS JR V :> St/ r~'- . i - • Monument by Villeneuve to Rabelais —who gave the world several million laughs and one good adjective—which will be dedicated soon at Montpellier In the presence of President Millerand of France. stations operating in It.

The problem in a nut shell Is tlie enormous area of forest land, which has been so logged and burned that it is producing little or nothing. We have more than 80,000,- 000 acres, an area greater than all the forests of France. Belgium, Holland, Denmark, Germany, Switzerland, Spain and Portugal, which have been denuded to the point of absolute Idle ness so far as the production of any timber of commercial '-alue is con cerned. “We have other enormous areas of cutover land now growing but a frac tion of the amount of timber which they might produce. And we are add ing to these areas of idle or largely idle land from 10,000,000 to 15,000,000 acres every year, as destructive log ging and still more destructive log ging progresses. Sees Trouble Ahead. “This situation cannot continue long without grave consequences. “Where Americans need more for ests is largely on these 8G,000.000 tim ber-denuded acres which could be made productive again with proper at tention and proper protection against fires.” Some of the reasons why these for ests are needed, according to Colonel Greeley, are: “Our manufacturing centers arc drawing at an enormous rate upon our timber supply—from two to four times as fast per capita as the coun try at large. “Our railroads require 125,000,000 wooden crossties annually to main tain their roadbeds in fit condition and take care of new construction. “Our average well-kept farms, using the upper Mississippi valley as an in stance, require 2,(XK) board feet of lumber annually for repairs and im provements.” X-Ray Solves Theft. Casper. Wyo.—An X-ray examina tion of a woman’s stomach solved a diamond ring mystery, according tc County Attorney Purcell. Mrs. Eva Hammond, a prisoner in the count) jail was placed in custody of a phy sician while county authorities con sldered what method to pursue in re covery of the ring. Mrs. Hammond was arrested after she attended a dance one night, following complaint charg Ing her with theft of a diamond riiif. valued at $1,200 last October. A tip from Mrs. Hammond's dancing partnet led to the X-ray test. Hosslan, “Ghandi earns his living ar a weaver. He works at his modest home, Is a great reader and student “Ghandi believes the use of vio lence In any form is a mortal sin Physical force he regards as the wea pen, not of the strong, but of the weak. “He thinks the most potent instni ment for all purposes is ‘soul force and the power of self suffering, and does not permit himself an unkind thought, even toward his bitterest ene mies.” Bank Robbed Often.

If we could learn to stop rating be fore we have reached the stage of being stuffed and masticate what we do eat at least four times as long as we usu ally do, we would find that we would be satisfied with much less food, have less stomach trouble and live more useful and efficient lives. In almost every part of the United States there are apples to be found. Where there are no orchards, there are apples to be procured from the markets. As they are the most whole some of fruits they should be served in a variety of ways, so that they nev er become monotonous. For an entree to serve with the main dish at dinner there is no sweet more attractive than baked apple slices. Core the apples before peel Ing; peel, then cut in slices one-half Inch thick and . place in a well-greased baking dish, giving each slice plenty of room so that they ‘may be removed after baking without breaking. Sprinkle with sugar, a bit of butter and a thick grating of nutmeg. Bake and baste with a bit of hot water to start with, then with the juice of the apple. When tender serve one slice with the meat or as a separate dish. Eggs Shirred With Sausages.—Prick six sausages all over and place around the edge of a baking dish, and cook in the oven until crisp; pour ofl the fat and cut the sausages Into inch pieces; break three fresh eggs in the center of the dish, pour over two ta blespoonfuls of fat and set in the. oven to cook the eggs. Serve in the baking dish. Apple Pie a la Mode.—Bake an apple pie as usual, and serve with a cara mel ice cream, a spoonful on top of each piece when serving. To prepare the caramel, brown a cupful of sugar in a smooth omelet pan, add hot milk, and when melted add enough cream to make it as rich as one likes, a sprink ling of salt, and sugar to sweeten. Browning the sugar takes away its sweetness. “Quaff ye the waters of Ramona’s well, Good luck they bring and secrets tell; Blessed were they by sandaled Friar, So drink and wish for thy desire.” GOOD IDEAS FOR THE COOK As food materials differ in price with the locality and with the season it is often impossible to follow a recipe, as we find some ingredient either too expensive oi difficult to obtain. If the housewife understands the composition of foods she can substitute some other food material with good results. For example, when butter is called for. chicken fat, sour cream, clarified bacon fat or some one of the butter substitutes may be used. Cream con tains more water than butter, chicken fat less; so in using such fats this must be taken into account. Chopped nuts are also added tc dishes to add to the food value. All these things are invaluable knowledge for the housewife to have. It is easy to find from bulletins published b) the United States Department of Agri culture almost anything in regard to foods. The following data will be helpful culture almost anything in regur dto foods: One cupful of whole milk, two tea spoonfuls. ail measurements level. One cupful of cream, three table spoonfuls; double cream, six table spoonfuls. Butter, one cupful, fourteen table spoonfuls; the two unaccounted for, salt and moisture. One cupful of English walnut meats, two-thirds of a cupful of fat. Peanuts, one cupful, about one-third fat. Chocolate, one square (one ounce), one tablespoonful of fat (scant). Grated cheese (four ounces), one .-upful; two and one-half tablespoon fuls of fat. One egg yolk, a little more than a teaspoonful; n whole egg the same. Vegetable oils, from which all water nns been driven off, contain one cup ful to one cupful. In a cake in which two-thirds of n cupful of butter is required and one cupful of milk, using a cupful ol cream, reducing the butter twe table spoonfuls and two tablespoonfuls of water added, will make tlie proportions right. After the cooking dishes are used or even while In the process of cook ing the dishes may he washed and put nway. They wash much easier before the food is allowed to dry. In all homes there should be an emergency shelf of canned goods and foods to be quickly prepared. It is like a bank account—a “source of help in time of trouble.’’ You will never GeJ Stung at the Busy > Bee Dulis Avdis, Propr.
