ETHER POLICE LAWS URGED TO CONGRESS .HOQVER RECOMMENDS STRING- ENT REGULATIONS ON RADIO . ' V: BROADCASTS BY LICENSED STATIONS AND AMATEURS By HERBERT HOOOVER Secretary of Commerce ' To establish authority by which to ,; provide order, Instead ot anarchy. In , the ether, is, the purpose ot the Radio till now before congress. The bill ex-: presses the recommendations ot the ' ' technical, amateur and legal committees ot the Radio conference called at the request of the president on Febru-r ary 27. It looks to procuring for ttie 'largest number of benefits to be derived from systematized use of the ether; establishes conclusively the legal right ,i of the Bureau ot Navigation to grant, ..land to revoke, operator and station - licenses; provides for the collection jot fees with which to maintain more , adequately the work of inspection, promises a fairer and more orderly j. allocation of available wave bands, , x and to make federal regulation con-j tlnuously effective, establishes an ad-.Visory committee, composed of repre-J sjentatlves "pf the departments and the public, to assist the department of .'commerce ,to provide, concurrently. without the delay attendant on new J legislation, for unexpected changes In wthe science and, notably, for develbp- ""inenta in the use of tUe radio tele- hone. " ) Existing authority, which Is (clearly Inadequate, 13 based , on the act approved. August 13, 1912, and on the In- rj.teriationaI convention ot the same year, before the advent of the radio- 2 phone, which for practical purposes ; f was the product of the war and ,the years, Immediately following the war. Since 1912 the radio-phone, In the ' point ot view of the public, has come 3 to hive larger importance even than T the radio telegraph, yet the only ref er-jience to the phone In the original legislation is In secton 6: m-m "The expression 'radio communica- ,tJon" as'used In this act means any sys-iem of electrical communication by telephony without' the aid of any wire connecting the points from and at which the radiograms, signals or other communications are sent or received." VthMa Vo an An A mftV. nMtthU " t -pidity so that it is now estimated there JT'4re fully a million and one-half of jadio-phone receiving sets in the Unit-TSd States, the use of wireless teleg-'raphy has also greatly been extended. 'The resulting confusion. has operated , to discourage progress, temporarily, in a field which has already attracted a I! lerger range of technical, : as well as . J; amateur, abilities, than any scientific n.levelopment, heretofore. X?r The relation of the, many stations , -j owned by the various departments of fttho government to date and commer-i cial stations has also presented a per-: plexlng problem, The military and 'naval branches of the government in . 'particular have contended vigorously and with Justification that their star J! tions ought not to be subjected to clvil-r ian control. lis Accordingly the bill for the "first j-Jtlme diffferentiates between govern -mental and military, or naval, uses of Tadio. It provides that the president ahali allocate wave lenggths which government stations shall" use for strictly governmental purposes,, while p other governmental, broadcasting shall be subject to the same central regula- tion and control as is malntaned for Jirivate transmitting stations, . , The bill also -amends ,the provision ,ln the basic law to the effect that the wave lengths, 600 to 1,600 meters, shall ;,be reserved, in accordance with, the International convention, for military .use. The conference was of 'the opin- Ion that all wave lengths in this large " range not essential to military use, should be made available to the pub-m'.lio. Accordingly, .the present Radio till proposes that this reservation be removed. In other words, when the tTieoverhment's essential requirements will have been determined by the pres- ident, a much larger range for broad-j casting will be available to the depart -M-Jment of commerce for allocation to the 'est possible advantage.; Amateurs can then be encouraged .2 In a larger way. . Newspapers, more han 40 of which are now broadcasting,, can be afforded a separate band. Commercial broadcasting can be stab-...ilized In a larger plan. Interference ;fwill be diminished. And the general : result of the proposed legislation must, "therefore, recommend itself to the ln-a dustry and the public, generally. - . Scientific American , TTARM RADIO CLUBS B SPONSORED BY U. S. To reach by radio, the 32 million people who reside throughout the year li-pn farmB, is the aim of the depart -' 'j; ment Of agriculture, according to J. Fan-el. writer for the Radio News. ".'"For more than a year the depart- nent of 'agriculture has been broad-li casting agricultural news from sta- t i'tions of the post office department; "Vo.wners of receiving sets, among the tjlarmets and banks, receive the 1n-:l formation and pass it qn to their neighbors. Up to the present time, there has been no fixed organization f farmers' to disseminate the news, , .nd those receiving Its benefits are small compared with the total number ' of agricultural men in the nation. The formation of a national farm I 'H radio club, sponsored by the depart- - ment 3 of navigation, and agriculture, ! f will result , In the great majority of .farms Installing radio receiving sets. - i Cooperation la organizing clubs, and impressing their importancetupon the rural inhabitants, is being given by jolleges and universities. Agricultural Colleges are particularly Interested because of tha large population they ' will reach in their broadcasting areas, and enabling thenv to .enlarga their - services and . at the same time, gain Z In prestige among the people pf their 'J state-, J GERMANS FIND AIR NEWS SERVICE CHEAP The German government! post office department has decided, that radio telegraph is the cheapest method of distributing news, according to t Scientific" American. The postoffice administration has entered into an. agreement with a news agency for the distribution of news, markets, and stock quotations. Subscribers to the service pay 4,000 marks per annum, wheh covers .installation, maintenance ''and news service. . . DAILY MENUS SENT . BY STATION W W J DETROIT NEWS HAS FIRST RADIO ORCHESTRA) DINNER SCHED-o ULES, CHURCH SERVICES, AND SPEEPHES Station W W J, the broadcasting station of the Detroit News, and the first broadcasting station in the United States to be operated by a newspaper, has "a daily program that extends from early morn to late at night. The first broadcast in the morning is called, "Hints to Housewives," And tells 'the women who listen in, what to order from- the grocer lor dinner that night, and also how to prepare the meal for serving. This part of the service is prepared by a dietetic expert, and furnishes to housewives more Information than could be ob tained from a cook book, or at night Following the dinner schedule, a short musical program is played for the morning listeners, and the weather reports for the different states within the range- given. At noon, the time signals from the Naval pbservatory at Arlington are relayed. Lunch Program .Popular The lunch hour Is taken up with a 45 minute musical program, and is heard by thousands of persons who are employees ' ot industrial plants owning radio sets, while they are eating their lunches. ' The first part of the afternoon is not filled, and broadcasting again starts at'3.:30 when the latest weather report, and market quotations are given out. From 5 to 6 p., m. finals on all league ball games are sent. First Kact'o Orchestra The Detroit News also has the distinction of having the first exclusively radio orchestra in the world. This is'called the Detroit New Orchestra. This organization- is featured in all concerts given out from Station W W J. . . .Special programs are broadcasted every evening and Sunday by station W W J. The evening features include, The Detroit" News orchestra, the Town Crier, Lady Lullaby, and civic and university extension work sup-nlied bv the University- ot Michigan. Michigan Agricultural college, and the University of Detroit. In the winter months the "Detroit Symphony orchestra plays, twice a week at the broadcasting station. ; ' Sunday Church Services Two church services are held each Sunday, one in the morning and one in the, . afternoon. The services consist of hymns, sermons by prominent ministers, and special, talks on subjects of the day. . At various times throughout ' the year when well '.known? speakers are available, specal . broadcasts are made of their speeches. These broadcasts have been heard a' thousand miles and by many .thousands of people; ' ' " Have Large Transmitter The transmitting set of the News Is one ot the most complete in the country. It has a set of double carbon button microphones of special design, which transforms the sound into electrical energy.' A speech current amplifier is also used to increase the power ot the michophone. The transmitting device consists . of a radio transmitter with a 60 watt tube, a vacuum tube speech input amplifier and four 250 watt vacuum tubes, two used as. oscillators, and two as modulators. A five and one half horsepower provides power for" the -tubes. The antenna is four stranded and 250 feet -long. ' The broadcasting studio of. the News is perfectly appointed.? A large instrument room cantalns all equipment necessary for sending long distances, and another room has a piano, and faclliities for concert broadcasting. . SCREENS USED AS ' . TOURING ANTENNA PALACE TRUCK HAS RECEIVING SET, HOT AND COLD WATER, AND PNEU-MATIC BEDS A large radio receiving set is part of the equipment of a palace touring stage, owned by C. E. Chiperfleld, which passed through Madison Thursday. - ' , A three stage amplification set built into the dashboard,-with a large loud speaker is one of the many features ot the house on wheels which Mr. Chiperfleld and "his wife are using in a drive across the country.. The copper screens which enclose the windows and doors, are used for an aerial. ' A chain dragging from the body of the car gives a suitable ground. The radio set is only one of the many wonders concealed by the walls of the huge touring car. Running hot' and cold water, pneumatic beds, large easy chairs, electric reading lamps, and a porch that can be let down from1 the rear of the truck, are parts ot the extraordinary equipment. The Chiperflelds spend their even ing Usteningg In ' to concerts coming in by radio. If "they do -not like Ne-warks program, they Just turn the handle and listen to K Y WW Ct A Y, or W ,H -A.

Keeping fishermen n yawls in touc'4 with their mother ships. These are but three- of the applications Earl, C. Hanson, a young inventor, is making of the secret of radio amplification. , Before long Hanson expects it ,io cut down the loss of life in airplane accidents, increases the range of radio reception, make the voice carry, across the continent and eventually around the woridt By 1925 he. says it will be possible for people all over the globe to listen to the next president deliver his in.-augural address! . These are not the fancies(of an idls dreamer but the predictions of a prac-' tical engineer who is doing more 'to make radio useful and beneficial outside the wireless field than anyone else. . .. He does it- by using a vacuum tube! .In' the va'ctuphone, which amplifies a whisper so that it sounds like shouting, the tube is an inch and a half long. Yet it makes the deaf hear! In his hip-guiding, device, Hanson uses the tube to produce a musical hum in a telephone receiver worn by the navigating officer. This direcU his course- into ' port even through the thickest fog! He has perfected a similar, but smaller, instrument to keep fishermen in small boats from being; lost at sea. "This vacuum tube," says the in ventor, "is the most important ele6-trical development of the. 20th century." ' "Its applications are almost limit less. v . .

It i' so sensitive that the most feeble magnetic' energy can be picked up' and amplified." Hanson began his electrical experimenting,, early. . As a seven-year-old boy in California he used to "break .the doorbell circuit sb that he might watch tho electrician repair it! In elementary school ne made a wireless telephone' with which he talked over short distances. At 19 he invented an Important system ot radio transmission". During the war he gave the government use of his many inventions including his audio-piloting sytem. . In this a sJiip is guided into port by the' musical ham produced by a vacuum tube, which amplifles"the magnetic energy created by a current in a cable laid, along the bed ot the channel. Coils, on each side ot tha ship, pick up this energy. The navigator' listens In. . When one side is louder' than the other, he knows he is getting off the course and steers his ship accordingly . ' "Airplanes," says Hanson, "can uso the audio-piloting sytem Just as vessels do. A telephone wire from one airdrome to another could take tho place of the cable. The flyer, by listening through his receiving, apparatus, could follow this wire. "This will greatly diminish the danger of night flying." 1 A little time and Hanson will have the system perfected by another application 'ot his vacuum tube. amplifier!. , ' .
