InMead of the table full of ncnttered apparatus he hod left, a new $1,000.000 home for the Detroit News station, \V\VJ, and a now 6000 watt trnnnmlttlng station declared by engineers to be among the most modern In the country. Tho new station, erected directly ACCOM the itrcet from the News building, will be dedicated late In Hcptember. The transmitting station hits been in operation for two month*. In 1920, da Forest's radio could have been placed conveniently on anyone's kitchen table and there would liavo remained enough room to prepare a cake or pie. The three men who operated the station had little Work to do. Their microphone looked liko an ordinary telephone. Whenever It won desired to broadcast phonograph records—tlm "friend In aeed" of early broadcoMIng days — the phonograph was shoved up close to thli "mike." An old-fashioned vramophone horn, held against the ".mike," bridged almost all of the Intervening distance. Thus was the music from the phonograph fed Into the transmitter. Power wiui derived from a ISO watt, 600 volt direct current generator driven by a motor of only one-quarter hornepower. *»• San Joaquin County Budget Is Approved (United I'rrn Leaut Wire) SACRAMENTO, Aug. 28.—San Joaquin countys' budget of $1,083,360, an excess of J:07,168 over the 6 per cent Increase limitation, was approved today by the State Board of Equalisation.
