CARL E. GORDON
The Ptiilco Service Man (Continued from Page .1) sides being an authorized Phil co radio service man getting all factory installation detail by code before the instruments are released on the market, he also receives periodically the com bined releases of all other ra dio, radar and television manu facturers. In the layout of his store and shop, he has divided it into two divisions due to different re quirements of equipment. On the one side he has AM radios and auto radios, on the other FM, radar and television. How Gordon Started in Radio While working in Winnetka as an auto mechanic during 1930, it was one of his jobs to take car radios out of cars when they needed attention, and then he delivered it to a radio service agency for repair and adjustment. He noticed that in many* cases this (latter part) took only a little time, while the removal of the instru ment from the car took con siderable time. This fact gave him his first desire to learn something about radios. Gordon therefore attended the DeForest Radio and Televi sion School in Chicago. While going to school he purchased old radio sets and was given some with which to experiment. He seemed to have a knack finding the trouble and rectify ing it. The school was so well pleas ed with his achievement that they wanted to set up a labor atory in his home. However, he declined their offer and in place continued his schooling, attending the University of Wisconsin at Madison for two years in the field of Radio, Tel evision and Electronics, taking advanced courses. Then he was asked by Philco to take their test and he attended their school in Radio and Television for two years. Has an Inventive Spirit While studying with Philco he perfected a patent which transmits music on a beam of light through a series of photo electric cells and electric eyes to a transmitter, which can be over 25 feet away. He also invented an auto matic control for changing the light beams on automobile head light from bright to regu lar driving when approaching another car, when the lights are on, and then returning the beam to bright after the car passes. This he accomplished by use of electric cells. Carl has perfected a device which eliminates all of the needle noises from record re productions. He has taken several refresh er courses at Philco to keep in training in the very latest of their many patented improve ments. Mr. Gordon is also an exper ienced technician on Motorola 2-way communication, having taken their factory course in same.

His parents then moved to Toledo, Ohio, where he at tended Wait High School, graduating in 1927. After grad uation he wanted to see what there was to be seen in the United States, travelling from the East coast to California and through the Gulf states as well, finally settling at Winnetka, Illinois, where he became affil iated as an auto mechanic with Standard Oil Co.

GOD'S CALL TO ISRAEL By Anton Darms By Zephaniah bold • Jehovah did make known The prophecy foretold That Israel must be born. His vision most sublime, With ages rolling on At last appeared on time For Israel’s Day has come. “LET NOT THINE HANDS BE SLACK,” O Israel, saith thy God Let not your eyes look back Upon the way you’ve trod. “GO FORWARD” is the word That spurs thee to thy work Thy Prayer then is heard, When never thou dost shirk. What in the past was done Will not today suffice Thy work has just begun. Beyond is thy great prize. Now Israel has been bom Before Millennial days To usher in the dawn When Peace her scepter sways. For Israel, sent of God Her message must proclaim Where Israel of old has trod We must at last reclaim. Her standard must be high Her morals must be pure Her people true and tried Her faith in God be sure. Behind thee Egypt lies; Before, the Promised Land, Bi*eak all unworthy ties, Go up, possess the Land. Go bold into the fight, With all thine armour on Press on with all thy might Then victory will come. Surrender all thine, own To use it for thy God; For where thy treasure’s home, There also is thy heart. No life that is divided To God can pleasing be To Israel’s cause united You will success achieve. No place for shirkers here— No place for idle drones Nor loud professions mere, Nor murmuring and moans; Keep working right ahead And with a firm step move What God of Israel said, Shall more than be made true.
