MASON CITY GLOJBE-GAZBTTE, APRIL 7 193(5 THREE PASNAU TALKS TO ROTARY CLUB Explains How 17 Separate Conversations Are Sent Over Same Wires. Some of what are generally considered by the lay mind as mysteries in the telephone business, particularly as applied to long distance transmission, were explained Monday noon by C. 0- Pasnau, chief tester here for the A. T. and T., at a meeting- of the Rotary club in Hotel Hantord. Air. Pasnau told how it is possible to send 17 conversations over four wires without one interfering with another. Different frequencies · are used to make this possible. He also described a telephone repeater, an important pice of apparatus which makes conversations over long distances possible by building- up the tone when it becomes weak In connection with the transmission of sound over long distances. Mr. Pasnau mentioned that higher pitched tones have higher frequencies and that consequently the attention of the higher pitched tones Is greater. In relaying of radio broadcasts through the local office to Minneapolis, for e^rnple, it is necessary to reduce the intensity of bass drum beats and other low tones to keep the various tones of a band in proper proportion. Diagrams were drawn by Mr. Pasnau to illustrate several of the principles that he explained. He also described the teletype, by which ; news dispatches and other messages are transmitted to Mason City in a typewritten form. Guests were R. R. McMaines of Charles City, C. F. Weaver and C. R.
