MHHMMMHHMHMHIHHIHUHHMHIHBIMUHMHIMHIIMMIIHlHIBBIg BIG FEATURE AT THE COOKING SCHOOL B I m a s a a a a THIS R A D I O - P H O N O G R A P H , for the firs* time, the Dynamic Ranqe o| we ^wjkc!Wj Only a few years ago the most imaginative radio engineer wouldn't have dreamed of an instrument so magnificent... a radio- phonograph that gives you so much, and gives it so brilliantly, because it has such features as these: The PHONOGRAPH operates through the revolutionary Dynamic Amplifier and for the first time brings you modulations from the whispered pianissimo to the thunderous fortissimo. The Automatic Record- Changer is as smooth and quietly efficient as^the electric motor; as deft and precise as the electric pick-up; Home- and Radio- Recording enables you to make fascinating records, yourself! Records play through the radio's entire audio system, and you may avail yourself of the tremsndous output of ,25 watts-^through two Super-12" Electro Dynamic Speakers! The RADIO covers all frequencies from U. S. Aviation Weather Forecasts (140-410 kcs.), through, all domestic and foreign bands, police, aircraft and amateur calls to ultra-short (5-meter) waves at 60,000 kcs. It has, of course, the Magic Brain, Magic Eye and Metal Tubes;--it has, we may say, everything! But RCAiVictor Model D22-1 saysitsomuchbetter.somuchmoreconvinc- ingly, itself. Won't you come in and listen? BORDER PATROL POLICY STATED Seek to Place Interstate Truck Operators on Equal Footing. Seeking to put .to rest rumors that Iowa, through its force of state highway patrolmen, had launched a license war against Minnesota interstate truck operators, Harry Nestle, assistant state chief of the patrol, announced here Tuesday that the current inspection of Minnesota trucks was being made in retaliation to the policy in the northern state during the last few years. "The force of 18 state highway patrolmen now stationed in the northern tier of Iowa counties includes only three extra officers, the remaining 15 being resident patrolmen in the northern border dis- :rict," Mr. Nestle said. "Iowa truckers, as well as Minnesota operators, are being stopped y .the patrolmen and are submitted a routine tests on brakes, lights, overloads. "Deficiencies are noted and ordered corrected, and, when a Minnesota iruck is found violating any of the standard requirements, the operator s requested to remedy the conditions, whatever they may be. "Those commercial trucks whose operators pay the regulation ton- mile tax as provided by law, or private trucks merely hauling property or produce for his own personal use, are in compliance with the law and are not required to buy licenses in Iowa. "Persistent 'sniping' of Iowa trucks operating in Minnesota has left this as the only method of placing interstate truckers on an even footing," Mr. Nestle concluded.
