Two striking examples of modern American music of the lighter type will be featured in the Eveready Hour this evening at 9 oclock through Station WEEI, Catnip Blues, a part of John Alden Carpenters Jazz pantomime, to be played by the orchestra will be the first of these numbers. Muddy Waters, the other feature number, is another orchestra number and a very odd, unusual thing. It is sort of mixture of. negro spiritual and Black Bottom, which literally oozes the pungent mud of a Mississippi mud flat on a Summers day. The Sparkers In their broadcast from WBZ tonight will offer a program of light and seml-classical compositions rendered . by vocal and in strumental soloists together with an instrumental ensemble. This group of entertainers is under the direction of Walter Haenschen and their program will be of one-half hours duration, Charles March and, French-Canadlan interpreter of folk songs in French and English will be heard at the Smilers meeting from WNAC at 6 oclock this evening. John T. Benson will also talk of some experiences he has had with wild animals. During the program of the vVikings to be broadcast this evening, through WEEI, beginning at 8 oclock, the fairy tale adventure suite In the Blue Mountain by Agathe Backer-Oron-dahl will be rendered by Magnhild Styhr, the brilliant young Norwegian pianist. This work which gives impressions of tle folklore and legends of the broodljrg Norwegian peaks and hills, contains music of unusual beauty. It Is a tale of the mysterious hill folk, the mountain sirens, the witches and their legendary giant companions, the Trolls. To the educational features of WOt has been added a course in elementary French by Professor Francis A. Poubennec of Union College. The first lesson of the series will be broadcast tonight at 8:30. Hardeen, the only man who can give to the world the famous tricks of the late Houdini. will broadcast from the studios of WTIC this evening at 8:20 oclock. Hardeen promises to enlighten the radio audience and teach them how to do some of the simpler tricks in his bag. More of the rather sensational life of Don Amaizo, the wizard, will be revealed in the broadcast of this feature from WJZ at 10 oclock tonight. Don Amaizo is rapidly unfolding a tale of adventure surrounding his past life that is sparkling with interesting incidents. The only means by which Don Amaizo can communicate with his hearers is through his violin ar-d the selections which he plays upon t. What promises to be an unusual musical offering will be that designated as Leopold Auers Vorbereiter Hour The RADIO CORPORATION OF AMERICA ANNOUNCES Radiotron UX-201-A Reduced from $2.00 Now T.75 EFFECTIVE FEBRUARY X Four years ago, this Radiotron sold for $9.00. Today RCA announces a price of $1.75. Four years ago, its quality was acknowledged finest at its time. Today it is far more sensitive far more sturdy lives longer performs better stands more abuse. The acknowledged leader always! With three great companies RCA, General Electric and Westinghouse developing constant improvement, the leadership of the Radiotron UX-201-A has brought a sale running into many millions. And the consequent saving in production cost, passed on to the public year by year, again makes possible a reduction in price. Also Reduced! Radiotron' UX-213 Was $6.00. Now $5.00 Radiotron UX-213 used in the Dup-Rectron, the RCA B Battery Eliminator, is a full-wave rectifier for supplying D. C. power from an A. C. source. It is RCAs foremost tube for battery eliminators. RADIO CORPORATION OF AMERICA NEW YORK CHICAGO SAN FRANCISCO RC io tro n MADE BY THE' MAKERS OF THE RADIOL A at WGBS this evening, beginning at 8:15. An example of the programs quality is Serenade Humorestique a lEspiagrnoIe for three violins and piano.

In parallel, and not In series, to light tubes. Design of Set Q. 4616, W. T. Carr, Everett Last year the named set had one stage or radio frequency and a regenerative detector. This year the set contains two stages of radio and a nonregencr.i-tivo detector. Can you tell me why they dropped the regenerative feature of the first set? Is the present set an improvement over Uielr old set? Is It us sensitive and selective? Would reputed dealer put this set together for me? A. Degeneration control Interlocks with tuning in such a manner that different settings may bo made for the same wavelength. This Is confusing to people who do not understand the action, and they think something Is wrong with ttoo set. This is the main reason why regeneration Is not incorporated in most sets of today. Thin was probably the reason in this ease. Tho new set Is an improvement we believe. You might find a dealer who would assemble tho set. An interesting sonata recital will be an outstanding feature of the program of WFCH at 9:15 p m, when Robert Thrane, internationally known cellist, and his wife, Heromin Thrane, concert pianist, will make their Initial radio appearance. Same Trouble A$lSWers Short Circuit Q. 4614, D. B. E., Newport, It I.-The filament dial and panel of my five-tube set heats up after 13 minutes use. Please tell mo what causes It, and how to repair it, if it is lnjtiring the set. It doesnt make any difference whether the batteries are high or low. A. You evidently have a short circuit in the rheostate or near it. This will spoil your battery. You will have to find and remove tho cross connection!. Battery Tests Q. 4615, H. Shapiro, Iluxbury I recently bought a two-tube set and use 90 volts with a loud speaker. When my batteries Are all connected my two dry cells register 35 amps and my C battery 12 amps. I bought them a week ago. When I disconnect the C battery it still registers 12 and my dry cells fall to 33. I am bothered with a howling noise and cannot get rid of it. What is the trouble? A. We advise you to lose the ammeter. An ammeter has no place in tho equipment of tho tyro radio fan. A voltmeter only should bo used for testing batteries. You have probably spoiled the batteries by putting the ammeter on them. The howl may bo tho result of too much B voltage on the detector or because the volume control la tuned up too high. We suppose you are using the WD-12 type of tube. Be sure tljat tho dry cells are connected Q. 4617, O. J., Portsmouth, N H-I note Q. 4583, J, W. F. M., , I have a superheterodyne and find troublo similar to his on local stations Portland, Springfield, Schenectady anil Boston. This applies to evening programs only, for daylight programs us a rule come in very good unless there Is something of especially great interest being broadcast, which brings a great many squawking, nqucaktng and radlutlng sets on the air with their manipulations. There seem lo bo Home sets vthila turned In on a station I ant listening to, that can, without wurnltu;. take away completely, speech or muxlc iind, Just as suddenly, bloop off nnd let mo hn.vo It again. I wish to use a set that will not radiate enough to disturb tho peace of niy neighbors. Will It be to, use & set that will while In operation, permit the handa to take hold tightly of the bare antenna wire without diminishing th volume or disturbing reception? A. Tho set you mention should not bother your neghlors. Wont Oscillate Q. 4618, It. prlndle, Wolfelmro, N 1-I have built a four-tube set, with f.hrco circuit tuber and a three-stags resistance coupled amplifier. My troublo is that 1 cannot get the detector to oscillate. Late in the evening I can manage to clear up a few stations, but they are so faint it U next to Impossible to hear them. I have used tiom 20 to 320 volts on the plate, with no noticeable difference. I have tested tho tube, antenna, ground, coll and B batterlea. I have tried reversing th tickler leads and different grid leaks. Any suggestions will be appreciate 1. A. In your sketch we can s-o no bypass condenser. Connect a .001 fixid condenser to tho lead between the tirk-lor and phones and to A plus. Wa think this will remedy the defect.

Would a sooond resistance of 2500 ohms placed in tho lead from ths 90-volt binding post of tho It. F. plate, give sufficient ly accural: current? A. Insfa-ad of using tho 5000-ohm ro-sistor between 90 and 43, uso two 2500-ohm resistors in aeries and take tho 67!i-volt tap from between them. Poor Audio Stags Q. 4620, A, C, Cochran, Andover, N II In a radio receiver employing two stages of audio amplification, 1 have been bothered with a hiss, if the tuboa are burned at ths most efficient point. I am tinablo to use tho second audio stage, except by reducing tho voltage on both tubes so that the volume la not quite equal to the first alone. Tha quality is very bad and somewhat intermittent and if tho voltage is increased on either radio stage, a terrible transformer bowl sets up, Tha transformers have been tested.
