The fact that people all over the world now have tiny radios the size of a pack of cigarettes that they can carry around with them is due to the miracle of the transistor. To understand what a transistor does, we have to go back to how radio and television programs are transmitted. They go through the air in the form of waves. To get an idea of what such waves look like, imagine holding a rope that is tied at one end and you make up and down motions at the other end. You will produce a series of waves in the rope. Radio signals also are carried by waves, but we cannot see them, of course. Now, there are two important things to consider about these waves. One is called the amplitude, which is the strength or power of the wave. It is measured by how high the top of the waves rise above the axis or node. A loud sound has a large amplitude. The ether important . thing about the wave is its frequency. This is the number of crests and troughs in the wave in each second. The frequency determines the quality of the sound. If the frequency is changed, the sound is distorted or changed. What a radio does is receive the sound waves in the air and amplify them. That means to increase their strength. It does this without changing the frequency of the wave, so the quality of the sound remains the same as was sent. The device that did this used to be the vacuum tube (and still does in many radios and TV sets). The vacuum tube was simply an amplifier of the sound. Today, the transistor is replacing the vacuum tube. Each transistor is about the size of an acorn, and its chief job is to amplify the-sound waves that it receives so that you can hear them on your set. Transistors produce so little heat that they can be placed close together. They are so efficient that they require very little battery power, so the radio can use tiny batteries. They are rugged, last long and are inexpensive. And all of this is why they are replacing vacuum tubes in many types of equipment. * * * FUN TIME The Riddle Box 1. What fish is most valuable? 2.

Butter Faces Threat Of Ban PHOENIX (AP)-The threat of federal condemnation hangs over 680,000 pounds of Arizona butter because of possible contamination by DDT. The U.S. Food and Drug administration office in Los Angeles seized 12,000 pounds of Arizona butter shipped into California about two months ago because of its contamination by the power insecticide. But Howard Bollinger, FDA deputy director in Los Angeles, said that as long as the butter is not shipped out of me state the federal agency is not involved. Leonard F. Cheatham, president of the United Dairymen of Arizona, said that while the stored butter has not been condemned, "We're darned worried about the possibility." Dairymen have complained r years that DDT - sprayed crops were contaminating feed for their herds. The problem was recently brought before state legislators at a hearing.
