SENATOR CAMERON INTRODUCES BILL FOR COPPER TARIFF WASHINGTON, D. C.— Senator Ralph H. Cameron of Arizona, has introduced a bill in the senate to piovide for the imposition of a tar iff of six cents per pound on all foreign produced copper entering the United States. The bill is known as senate bill 2018, and was referred to the committee on fi nance of the senate. The bill introduced by Senator Cameron is in response to a wide spread demand from producers ot American copper and interests de pendent upon the industry, that do mestic producers of the red metal be g.ven protection in the Amer ican market against the competition of copper from South American mines entering this country and produced by low priced laboi. A resolution of appreciation thanking United States Senator Ralph H. Cameron for initiating and carrying successfully forward the investigation, by the United States Senate Committee on Public lands, of the administration of and the conditions on the national for ests and the public domain affect ing the livestock industry, and which resulted in the waving of grazing fees for 1925 and 1926 as a necessary temporary relief to the industry was given a unanimous vote at the largest annual mid-win ter meeting ever held by the Ari zona Wool Growers’ association. Senator Henry F. Ashurst was strongly commended in the same resolution for the unwaiving sup port that he gave and is giving Sen ator Cameron in his fight for the welfare of the livestock men of the west. The meeting of the wool growers was held last Monday in Phoenix, at the Adams hotel. Democrats Propose Phoenix Postoffice To Cost $350,000 WASHINGTON —Appropriation of $187,083,000 for the construction of more than 300 postoff ce buildings in various parts of the country, has been proposed in a bill by Rep resentative Eu. by of Mississippi, a democrat, on the house building committee. The bill provides $350,000 for Phoenix, Arizona, and SBB,OOO for remodeling at Boulder. Colorado. In the Busby postal bill, the ap progriations include the following sums: For Arizona—Globe, $225.- 000: Prescott, $25,000; Tucson, $425,000. Woman Os Wealth In Durance Vile PHOENIX —Hattie Mosher, one of the wealthiest women of Arizona and referred to sometimes as the “Hettie Green of the Salt River valley” is behind the bars of the county jail. She went before Jos eph S. Jenckes of superior court division No. 2, Saturday, with her suitcase and announced herself ready to take up residence in the county bastile and was promptly accommodated. Friday, Mrs Mosher was cited in to court to explain why she had not turned over the assets and ef fects of the City Ice Delivery com pany in accordance with an order of Judge Jenckes court several weeks ago. Mrs. Mosher, accord ing to her story, informed the court that it was a physical impos sibility for her to comply with the court’s order as the assets of the ice company had been delivered to a corporation formed to take over the concern. Judge Jenckes told Mrs. Mosher she says, that he understood she was president of the new firm and could deliver the firm’s assets if she saw fit to do so. He then gave her 24 hours to comply with the original court order or go to jail for 30 days. Saturday Mrs. Mosher appeared before Judge Jenckes and the con troversy was ended in the an nouncement by Mrs. Mosher that she had brought her suitcase along in anticipation of having to go to jail, and to jail she went.

Playing Nurse to Llama I'W i m I kg* John Smith and His I) AH If} No. 18: From Radio to Audio llill/1V One of a Series of Weekly Articles on Popular Radio —Copy- righted, 1925, by Ullman Feature Service Smith is one of those rare per sons who always manages to take advantage of disadvantage. There are some nights when reception is not so good, or times when he does not like what he can get over the air, but instead of grumbling he recognizes the chance to learn something more about how the set works. It was on one of these eventful occasions that I happened to find him trying to trace the radio cir cuits from input to output. The various basic units of the set were becoming as familiar to him as the arrangement of engine, clutch, transmission and differential in his car. He had formed a definite mental picture of the order from aerial to tuner, to radio frequency amplifier tubes, to detector, to aud io amplifier tubes and to loud speaker, but it was that change over from radio to audio that still puzzled him. “I don’t blame you for being puzzled,” I cheered him a bit. “There is probably no part of radio theory that is more carelessly ex plained than the change from radio to audio. I think you’ve got it pret ty well fixed in your mind that the original sound variations or values are carried on electro-magnetic waves oscillating anywhere from 50,000 to 1,000,000 cycles per sec ond, and you recognize this as al ternating current, but from the talk you hear it is certainly difficult to know whether the current is alternating or direct after the de tector tube has rectified it.” “That’s just my problem,” he ad mitted. “I can visualize the radio frequency—those high speed oscil- j lations—reaching the grid of the, detector tube. I can see the nega- I tive' electrons being attracted ( across the gap to the plate of the j tube which is positively charged! with the current from the “B” bat- | tery. I can clearly understand that ; this arrangement means that the ! current from the plate to the ear- | phones can go only in one direc- | tion because it has been rectified by the tube. But then why do they talk about this rectified current as I ‘audio frequency’? I thought ‘fre | quency’ was the term used to de | fine the number of cycles of any 1 oscillation. And after the current j is converted into the audio type its supposed to go in just one di- . rection!” Here he pointed to contradictory ] statements which he had picked from various sources, which cer tainly left doubt as to just what did happen after the detector got through with the radio frequency i form of the current. “I’ve been puzzled over just the same point,” I told Smith, “but I’ve finally got it straight from practi cal electricians. Its a pretty big story, and I guess there’s much that has to be taken for granted, but it will ease you considerably to know that the current is no longer alternating after it has pas sed through the detector, whether you use a crystal for this purpose or a detector tube.” “Fine!” Smith exclaimed. “But then why speak of audio frequency when the current in audio form is not alternating? How can there be oscillations in direct current?” j “That’s just where they confuse us.” J explained. “You see. all electrical circuits are oscillations. It is the basis upon which radio stands. But the term is rather vaguely used. First they are us ing it to mean alternations, then to mean pulsations. This is con fusing. and unnecessary. “Just picture the current coming in over the antenna as alternating current. Picture it changing its di rection thousands of times a sec ond. And regard it as a series of electrical oscillations. Now you have the term ‘oscillations’ in its most logical sense and you can figure that, used in other connec tions, it is often somewhat loosely employed. I’ll give you an in stance: “On these oscillations of the cur rent being sent out by the broad casting station are impressed the audio frequencies or sound wave variations. After this current is picked up, amplified and changed by the detector tube to direct cur rent the original oscillations dis appear and the only characteristics that remain to influence the direct current are . the original sound waves. This causes the direct cur rent to pulsate. Instead of being constant it is really intermittent because it is being controlled by the radio frequency current. These pulsations are often loosely refer red to as oscillations. “An electrician I talked with sug gested a simple way to think of this tricky part of radio. He says to consider radio frequency as re ferring to the number of cycles per second of the oscillations received First National Bank Our Savings Depositors, 483 in Number Received January 1, 1926, a dividend of 5% interest from July, 1925, to January* 1926 IMPORTANT Please present your Pass Books for your interest credit as soon as possible.

He said that in the changeover from radio to audio the alternating cur rent merely loses one ‘leg.’ I thought that about sized it up.” “After losing a leg it can’t move so swiftly, I suppose,” Smith added, “and we then get a chance to catch the sounds and learn what’s going on over the air.” Next week, No. 19: Nothing On The Air. Plan A $700,000 Hotel For Capitol Financing of a project for the erection of a 12-story modern hotel in Phoenix now is under way by Appolos Fuller, former Phoenix ho tel man. Plans have not matured as yet, but embrace the erection of a build ing at an approximate cost of $600,- 000 for the site and the structure, and its subsequent equipping at the expenditure of another SIOO,OOO. The building will be erected, Mr. Fuller stated, if present plans do not miscarry, by the H. L. Stevens company, of San Francisco, archi tects and hotel builders, and who control a number of hotels over the nation. The Consolidated Ho tels corporation would have direct charge of the management of the institution and the new hotel would be included in its system. Under the present plan the ma jor portion of the financing would be. done outside of Phoenix. As sociated with him in the project are Charles Putman of Pasadena and John B. Johnson of Santa Barbara, California. The Consolidated Hotels corpora tion recently was incorporated with the Arizona corporation commis sion and capitalized at $1,000,000. Architectural plans at present call for 250 rooms in the proposed new hotel, while the ground floor will be devoted to a large lobby, shops and stores. The building will be of class A construction and contain the latest ideas in hotel building. Baths will be provided for each room while ice water also will be piped to all of the rooms. Plans already have been consum mated for the acquiring of the site from Judge C. F. Ainsworth. It has a frontage of 150 feet on Cen tral avenue and 290 feet on Fill more street. It is at present oc cupied by the old Ainsworth home. PHOENIX SHRINE PHOENIX—H. H.

Another requirement of the run is the standing of the driver. He must be a local man. This eliminates the possibility of import ing a professional or “stunt” artist and holds the Mt. Diablo climb within the class of amateur sports although the driver may be an em ploye of the organization making the attempt to lift the Mt. Diablo stock car challenge trophy. assumed national importance with the announcement that the chal lenge trophy offered by an Oakland newspaper for the fastest time up the slopes of Diablo under the rules governing the award, had been lifted by Chevrolet. It is now claimed by men high in the industry that the Mt. Diablo dash will soon be as well known as the Pikes Peak race and that the California climb will rank with the great European mountain runs. The driver of the first car to capture the Mt. Diablo trophy, Joe Mendonca, was an amateur. He is receiving congratulations from members of the vast Chevrolet or ganization of the Pacific coast which stretches from sun-baked adobies of Mexico to the snow-cov ered lands of British Columbia. Mendonca covered the 11.6 miles of mountain highway in 24 minutes and 20 seconds; and this is con sidered excellent time when it is recalled that the average motorist is content to make the climb in an hour. IVhen the Chevrolet made the Mt. Diablo run for the newspaper tro phy, Mendonca was officially tim ed by representatives of the paper making the award and the run was officially observed in accordance with the rules governing this high land road classic. The trophy will remain in the possession of the Chevrolet organi zation for a period of sixty days during which time no competitor may compete for it. After that period has elapsed Mendonca will hold the trophy until some other SAVE MONEY EVERY MILE The known efficiency of the sturdy, pow erful Overland L-head motor, with pol ished cylinder walls, highly developed ignition, superior carburetion, give you extra miles from every gallon of gas.

FOREST FEES FOR FIRST HALF 1926 WILL BE WAIVED Grazing fees on all national for ests in Arizona will be waived for the first half of 1926, according to a telegraphic dispatch received last week by John R.

BUILDERS AND CONTRACTORS Phone 43 300 Kinsley Avenue FRIDAY, JANUARY 15, 1925 would exert every effort to have his resolution for waiving of the fees for the last half of the year acted upon favorably by congress. This resolution has already been introduced by the senator. The content of the message received from the senator seems to indicate that his resolution will probably be passed soon. He further explained that the waiving of the fees is the direct result of the investigations which were conducted in the south west last June by the senate sub committee. Senator Cameron was chairman of the sub-committee and conducted the hearings. Senator Cameron recalled in his message that the waiving of the grazing fees is in direct accord with the promise elicited from United States Chief Forester William B. Greeley during the hearings of the sub-committee in Flagstaff. The forester said at that time that he would recommend the waiving of the grazing fees for the entire year.
