J<me 5.— military man who not many Ago relinquished a high coni- Mft the army, yesterday took over >ltle« generalship of a new army otg-anteed radio industry of rn **• p; ; ,WlJh a message of pood-will and a l ' of encouragement, Major Gen- Charles McK. Snltzman, retired Of the army signal corps, add the annual convention of radio d*a1el-s and jobbers, assembled here ffct the 1930 radio show. Tt was his first public address since he assumed the chairmanship of the federal radio Commission last February, the highest tanking position in radio officialdom. Constantly recurring rumors that the Commission planned another drastic tipheavel In the allocation of broadcast- Ing stations—a move which would have *.•< decidedly deleterious effect on the Industry-were definitely spiked by General Snltzman. Allaying any pos- rinle fears harbored by -the 30.000 radio Wjteh attending the show,>adio's chief •aid that nothing of the sort was in Immediate contemplation. Any changes in the existing setup of the 600-odd stations on the afr will be gradual, and along sound engineering IlSies, the dealers were told. Like the manufacturers themselves, he said, the Oflly objective of the commission is to ^Ijj-ovlde improved reception conditions for the radio listener the country over. "- "I should say for the next ten years the commission ought to be studying problems and make any improvements •with~a view to bigger and better radio in this country. But I would not advise you to get overly excited about rumors," General Saltzman said. "The commission will undoubtedly from time tb time make some changes, but I believe they -will be wise ones carefully considered. Don't lose any sleep about them." General Saltzman joined the big parade of radio gentlemen who have taken slaps at the celebrated Davis equalization amendment to the radio act, which provides for the equal distribution of broadcasting facilities among the five radio zones and states according to population alone. Point- Ing out that New York state alone is entitled to about six times as much in the way of radio facilities as numerous southern and middle western elates which are more than six times as large as New York, he said this is one of the striking injustices of the Davis amendment. The bond of interest between manufacturers and the radio commission was emphasized by the chairman.

"NEW YORK, June 5.—Increase in the purchasing power of the American dollar through steady decline in prices of. leading commodities was further emphasized today by a break in silver prices to new record low prices at various financial centers. Led by the decline in silver, which touched 34 cents an ounce here today, commodity prices as compiled by Dun's review, have shown a decline of more than 8 per cent since Oct. 1. Dun's index is now only 10 per cent above the recent low level touched in July, 1821 and 45 per cent above the index number on Aug. 1, 1914. ^During May all but two of the seven groups for which separate indices are compiled showed moderate decline, the heaviest being in textiles and clothing. .
