Grain Men Voice Opposition to Futures Measure Former President of Chicago Board of Trade Picks Flawi in Revised Capper TinchfT Bill Wellington, June 9. (Special Tetfgum.) Opposition of the graiu exchanges of the country to the re vised Capper-Tinchrr bill for the reg uUiion of future trading in grain was voiced btfore the house committee on agriculture by T. F. Gte. former treidcnt of the Chicago Board of Trade. Mr. Galea insisted that the new bill, which seeks to control grain ex changea under the commerce clause ot the constitution, would enable a secretary of agriculture to build up political machine through hit con trol of the weighing and licenting of grain. Eneroachea on Bute. The Chicago grain man also point ed out the bill encroached upon eome of the function! of the atate govern ment in assuming to control the weighing of grain. He laid that there had been a tendency of late for bur eaus in the federal government to take from the state some of the powers which rightfully belonged to the lat ter. . So far at the sections relating to manipulation were concerned, Mr. Gates said that no new legislation was needed. "If there are attempts to corner the grain markets now, the manipu lators can be reached through the anti-trust laws now on the statute books." He added that attempta to corner the markets were very in frequent Under the terms of the Capper Tincher bill grain exchanges would have to apply to the secretary of ag riculture for rights to operate a con tract market This was opposed by Mr. Gates-as tending to place too much, power in the hands of execu tive officers. Oppose Report Plan. . Still another section of the. act, .which provides that governing boards of grain exchangee send reports of all business done by their members to the secretary, was opposed on the ground that 10 competitors were members of the board. It would nbt be 'fair to permit - competitors to know v one another's . business, he pointed out An amendment was, suggested to that section to the ef fect that members themselv.es send in individual reports. . Tomorrow Frederick B. Wells, former president of the Minneapolis Chamber of Commerce, will follow Mr. Gates in outlining the objections of the grain exchanges. : . - Leaders of the "farm bloc" in the house are anxious to pass the Cap' per-Tincher bill before the house be gins its recess vacation.

Inventive Geniui in Young Ameriea Game I Refreshing. By JOHN E. KENNEBECK. (TM to lk fifth toatallaaert el Ts stary at raeto.) Radio is more than recreation; ft is malady to which millions are susceptible throughout the world. ' "Radioitis" has more than 1,000,000 victims in this country. Young and old are in the game. In the early days of radio, no gov ernmental restrictions were placed upon work of any kind. No limit was put on the wave-lengths of transmitters and the power of out fits. Many amateurs took keen de light in filling the ether with all kinds of jargon by the dot and dash code? The ether was one grand bed lam as practically every receiving set had a spark set also. This soon became a nuisance. The government in 1912 made an effort to squelch amateurs who fiilled the air with interferences, and a law was passed which' is still in force. It laid down reasonable conditions re garding the rights of the amateur. It provided that a power of -more than one kilowatt should not be used in amateur sending stations.' The taw further required that it should be necessary to have an operator's license if a station should be cap able of transmitting over the bound ary tinea of the state in which it is located. Under the radio communication taws of the United States,, the country is divided into nine districts. Headquarters are as follows r : . First district . Boston Second district New York' Third district Baltimore - Fourth district Norfolk Fifth district New Orleans Sixth district ....San Francisco Seventh district . .Seattle Eighth district Ninth district .Detroit .'...Chicago No restrictions are placed upon receiving stations as they are un able to interfere with one another. Radio is a creative hobby. It appeals strongly to that inven tive instinct which every normal in dividual has. It offers an unlimited opportunity to exercise the creative faculty. Every amateur has. his own way to "hook-up" a receiving set and any hobby that allows this wide range of .experimentation is alluring. The relaxation that radio offers is refreshing. It will add years to the life of any man. - - -, Wireless 'amateurs are a clannish lot. They love to get together and talk shop. , As a result, local radio clubs are coming into vogue. A club room is found, and here the meetings are held at various times. Lectures are arranged, code practicing - sta tionc are formed and sooner or later the club has its own station. . As a hobby, radio even has pos sibilities of being a means of play ing, chess or checkers by long dis tance a novel pasttime. .;. - Whether this sport is a fad or not, it presages to, become- one of the biggest' commercial business in the future.. . y ' " The sixth installment of The 8h'i story of radio tomorrow will treat of wireless' as a sport for the traveler. icceiving set "gives forth a first class imitation of boiler shop in full operation instead of an anticipat ed lecture on the culture of silk worms." For the "bad radio weather" season has opened. According to the bureau, summer disturbances, called "strays," "stat ic, - atmospherics 5 and other names', are in evidence until about October I. The extent to which they are serious varies from weak inter ferrnre for brief intervals to a con tinuous succession of boiler shop noises which may last throughout the night.
