LON-DON RESTAURANTS tfftY NKW FISft DISHES RADIO WILL TRY OUT NEW MACHINE By ROBERT MACK, ; Staff Correspondent. (Copyright, 1930 by Consolidated Press ! ' Association.) - WASHINGTON, D. C., June 2.— ' After-midnight tests which have been conducted in the broadcast band by Iowa's two largest stations for the past few months may contribute to the radio art one of the most revolutionary advances in years—practical synchronization of high-powered sta tions on the same channel. i. , Unknown to the publfc and to a large portion of the broadcasting fra- ' ternity itself, stations WHO, at Des Molnes, and WOC, at Davenport, have been experimenting with synchronization, or the operation of. both stations at the same time on the same channel, without causing ruinous heteror dyne interference. Radio engineers repeatedly have ; said that synchronization without the . use of control land-wires, is not practicable. They confess that when il " does come, broadcasting's most serious problem, that of lack of elbow room in the ether, will have been solved. Yet these stations, owned by the Central Broadcasting company, feel ; that the experiments have been so ; successful as to merit practical appli: cation. They have tiled an applica- ! tion with the federal radio commission ' for authority to synchronize during " unlimited hours as a regular operating schedule. The stations, each using 5,' 000 watts power, now divide time on the 1,000 kilocycle channel. Before they were taken over by the Central company they were severe competitors, each seeking to oust the other from the channels and get it exclusively. ,In their experiments the stations claim they have evolved an engineering process whereby they can synchronize their emitted signals with absolute precision and without the use ' of the expensive land-line control. The stations are separated geographically .by 160 miles. Using "matched crystals," the little nerve centers of the modern radio transmitters which are designed to keep the emitted wave absolutely constant, these stations have been operating simultaneously during th» experiments. A special monitoring station has been established equidistant from the two transmitters in which an operator is stationed to ', ,cb*clc the signals and see If they coin, clde exactly. A "wobble" or just a ' few cycles by either transmitter would /throw the broadcasting off-tangent. It has been the contention of engineers . that it is scientifically impossible at this stage of the art to maintain this minute accuracy without wire control. Last week, upon receipt of these optimistic reports. Dr. C. B. Jolliffe visited Iowa to make personal observations. Upon his return, he will submit a detailed report to the commission, and upon this unquestionably will hinge the determination of the commission's policy with request to synchronization in the immediate future. Should the Iowa test.s be adjudged fool-proof, it will mean that the congestion existing in the broadcast band Garden Hose 8c a foot W. H. GOODFELLOW'S SONS 1319 Eleventh Avenue NOW ItKAUV!

It might even result in a deviation from the present system of allocating cleared channels for the exclusive use of high-powered stations during evening hours. The only other synchronized stations In the United 1 States are WBZ, at Springfield, Mass., and WBZA, at Boston, operated by the Wcstinghouse Electric & Manufacturing Co. These stations, however, are wire-synchronized. Moreover, the company recently asked the commission to permit it to discontinue this service as unduly expensive for the results obtained and to consolidate the two stations, with assignment of the maximum allowable power of 50,000 watts. The two Iowa stations also have a joint 50,000 watt application pending, but whether it will be withdrawn in view of the synchronization request is not known. In. Ridgawood, L.

XIIK KKNK LdNDOtt, June 2.— New dishes are constantly appearing in the famous restaiirants of London's West end and he majority of these are fish dishes.
