He announced that Indians, Anglo-Indians and Bur- mans, who are in Great Britain at present, will be on the same footing as British subjects of pure European descenl as regards voluntary enlistment in the army, navy cr air force and will also be on an equal footing when It comes lo getting commissions based on soldierly merits. It has Always been galling to young Indians, studying In the various British schools and colleges, to find themselves barred from the British armed fcrces . ers Installed In the main hall upstairs have provided convenient storage space for bcoks and other materials owned by students. A school band has been equipped with colorful uniforms in orange and black, together with several valuable instruments. Tills organization has represented the school frequently at out-of-town events. Instruction iii the playing of band instruments is given in Ihe Department of Music. Classrooms have been made more attractive by Ihe accumulation and arrangement of maps, charts, draperies, bulletin boards, filing cab- IncUs. work tables, and growing plants. In the auditorium velvet draperies hang at the windows, while a front curtain and cyclor- atna have been added to the stage. Increased emphasis has been channel less congested and with more latitude than now used. Regular broadcasts received on standard sets are made on a nar- , row band, assigned by the Federal | Communications C o m m 1 s .s I o n. i Through broadcasllng kiv.wn as i "amplitude-modulation." the station forces its''slgnals, with high power, through this narrow band to listeners. Because of the narrowness of the band and the heavy traffic it bears and the variance cf power, there L> Interference from other stations, with the resull that one program dlslorls or drowns out another. Armstrong Investigated the short- wave field ami employed a band five times as wide as Ihu long-wave. Consequently, instead of having to fcrce its signals through a narrow, crowded baud, a station now throws Its signals out In,a wide, sweeping motion, Irom side lo side. Power Ls constant and, because the fleli is uncrowded, dlstorltcn has beet eliminated. Noise "Defeated" So'powerful is the signal on this wide band thai all static and in terference are forced aside, and the program goes into Ihe receiving set just as II leaves the studio. l "Two stations cnnnct'coinn Into the receiver at the same time," said DobHUle. "-'The signal that Is stronger.prevails, and only that one Is heard. The same procedure is established with noise. The signal Is stronger than noise, hence the signal comes \ in and not iKlse."

I,Ike television, which Is limited by the curvature of tho earth, they can be sent only 50 or CO miles without being relayed. '/.iiK-navc broadcasts follow the curvature of the earth, short-wave broadcasts shoot off Into space at Ihe horizon and no way has yet uecu found, aside from relaying, to make Ilicm act differently. Engineers n'w arc considering Ihe combination of frequency- modulatcd programs with television .so as lo give listeners not only a clear vision but realistic sound accompaniment.
