This has been made possible by stabilization of the industry and the elimination of some of ' the weaker manufacturers. . The new sets are likely to show no striking changes. The new models ''•will have a new and /velvety depth of tone and there will be much attention paid to the furniture appeal of, -the instruments, Manufacturers are watching with interest the trials of the new double-screen grid, a pentode with live" elements as ' against four for the 'ordinary screen grid. It is claimed for thld new product that it will make possible equally good reception with feweX tube! per set, and Will fill some of the, deficiencies Which many of the ^manufacturers charge against the single screen grid. This/ new product has been produced before, but will how get its baptism of fire under the '- manipulation of the manufacturers' en• gineers. '• ' There are now 12,826,000 receiving ' 'sets in use, in this country.

' , \ According to the radio commission, the American pepole are'wall pleased with present-day broadcasting and reception. When the radio broadcaster's popularity grows,, his fan mail grows with it, but when listeners are pleased .with reception the fan mail of the radio commission dwindles—and at present H is very small: To them the fan/i ''write only when they blame, not praise. The ; significance of this is more evident when it is borne in .Vmind that 60,000,000 people lis.ten in 'every day, and It is estimated 7,000,, 000 people are listening all-the time. As to the long distance view of the radio industry, the glasses are focused firmly on television, which the manufacturers believe to be the natural concomitant of radio. IS GIVEN DAMAGES.

Prices remain firm. • Inactivity in the industry is attributed partly to the three-day .holiday coming "in the last week, but'.principally to the continued depression In general trade. While a few districts - sale report an upturn In 'the-sales 'curve, ,this is considered only temporary, and little change In the situation is expected before fall. Deliveries are, immediate on stock tools, and' from'six to fourteen weeks .on special items. Philadelphia, reports ; an .improved volume of sales, •chiefly to industrial plants along the Atlantic seaboard, and an increase in inquiries. New York toOk the week-end holiday seriously and only k; few sales ,Were booked. ; ' "•• .'• >-•Chicago dealers regard the market' as unsatisfactory, with industrial demand low and inquiries declining.; Cincinnati looks for a gradual improvement, with several dealers, reporting good.- May sales. Cleveland's market also has a more encouraging aspect.' Current sales there N are mainly for miscellaneous items. ' . ,Qnly the second-hand : machinery market is active 'in New England. Milwaukee'dealers report a drop in inquiries and a .slowing of general demand, but indications are present thai the bottom of the' curve-: has beet passed.

The new criminal enterprise i* d«ft< nitely national in scope and is believed by the police to account for nearly Mrtu.OOO.OM ih actual losses By theft throughout thtf country. The latest big haul made by the New York police included mainly jewels stolen from Florida hotels and on a Michigan train, bound to Chi" c&go. These and other disclosures indicate that the thieves follow traveling jewels, through their seasonal migrations,/ around the race tracks, from T la Juarta to Belmont, or to the Florida beach resorts ,in the Winter, and Newport 'and other northern resorts in the summer. H has been known to the police that jewel thieves wefe acquiring a new expertness in "unharnessing" gems and dressing them again in a hew and deceptive guise, which may partially account for the lack of claimants for the jewels now held here. Police have been baffled by the participation' 6f persons' in 'various states in a single .theft and there are indications that tfnele Sam may be drawn into another enterprise in national policing. Representative La Ouardia of New -York, has introduced in congress a bill to make possible, federal action against this "fences"V which handle this. interstate loot, Heretofore, in the operations) of home talent pickpockets; burglars and sneak thieves, police problems 1 have been localized and it was possible for the police to attack Hhe fence, and the problem was that of a single, municipality. But in prosecution across state. boundaries it is found that witnesses may be taken from one jurisdiction to-another only on their own volition. The La OUardia- bill Would empower the state to compell testimony, regardless ot state'jurisdiction. • Evidence that more scientific systems of burglar alarm protection are driving' thieves to the highway appear In the ' records/of the American District Telegraph company for 1929, showing 'the number of attacks and entries in 10 Jeading American cities.
