America's "Miss Radio" the Diana of the air, hunting DX stations and thrilling her friends with the story of her in terest in and appreciation of radio, has been chosen, in a competition conducted by the Radio World's Fair, opening here on September 14, in the 258th Field Artillery armory. She is Rena Jan8 Frew, 336 Fifth street, Beaver, who boasts of only four feet .and ten inches of height and tips the scales at just ninety three pounds, but can produce a log of radio stations in the United States, Canada, Porto Rico, and Cuba that is of prodigious size; and despite the fact she is only 20 years of age, can testify to achievements in wireless since the day she was known as "the little ladybug" among the amateur operators. She took her tests for a license to maintain an amateur station (8ME) when she was 14. "At that time," she explains, "I operated the set installed ii the Beaver High School and taught" a class in wireless during my freshman year. I was the first f emale licensed operator in Pennsylvania, -of-which, I am sure, and probably the first east of the Mississippi." . Miss Frew uses specially wound coils in her broadcast reception set and reports "very little trouble all through the summer with static." As soon as broadcasting started, she discarded what she terms her "wireless junk." Miss Frew will be presented with-a silver cup next Monday night by Governor Alfred E. Smith, at the opening ceremonies of the Radio-World's Fair, and will be the guest of the management and radio clubs at- teas and receptions during the week , of the exposition. Her views on radio will be broadcast from the show by several stations. The judges of the contest were E. C. Raynor, publisher of Radio Digest; Miss Margaret Holland, of the New York : Herald-Tribune," and U. J. Herrmann,, managing director Radio World's Fair. They also announced that silver cups had been' awarded as follows: Second prize to Mrs. Lodema R Towne, IS East avenue. Albion. N. Y.t an invalid confined to.her home for live yearsf who listens in on a single dry cell tube set. - Third prize to Mrs. W. A. H. Hayes, of Canfield, Ontario, Canada, who confesses to sitting up until the wee morning hours to hear California, and has listed more than 800 stations on a three-tube regenerative set. Duplicate third prize to Mrs. J. Nelson Barger, of 601 East South street, Albany, Mo., who seems to have the advantage : of a wonderful location (location and other! pertinent factors determining reception were taken into consideration by the judges) and has ; reported 800 stations. '. - ' Honorable mention, is given ,to .the following: - ; , Mr3. Abba Lindsay Mc'Cumber, 1521 West National avenuei Brazil, Ind., who began her career as Wireless operator in Seattle in 1900. - I ,- Blanche Driver, 134 North Liberty; venue, Delaware, Ohio, using a five-: tube radio frequency receiver, on which she has heard about all the principal broadcasters of the country and is always on the look-out for interesting events in the ether Mrs. W. L. Wise, 618 Alabamaave-nue, Selma, Ala., for a fine log and a very enthusiastic letter. Clay Irwin, general manager of the Radio World's Fair, declared that the contest was a testimonial to the vast army of feminine radio fans of the country, whose great interest in radio has hastened the development of simple and efficient receivers encased in cabinets that are ornaments to the homo, replacing the nondescript receivers used at the advent of broadcasting. - A SUGGESTION ' The best and quickest way to add water to the cells of a storage battery is to siphon the distilled water from the? bottle through a rubber tube. Set. the bottle on a shelf above the battery and start. the action of the water by sucking on the open end of the tube. ' The flow of water may be . regulated by pinching, the tube. .. -.. , (Central Standard Time) r W0CO, MINNEAP0US-8T. pACL 410.4 6:00 P. M. Baseball -neorea. 6:18 P. M.

' - 1 , i SCHENECTADY, N. Y., Sept. 12. Coming of the world series and the opening of the football season, will begin a series of broadcasting events that is expected to surpass all others heretofore presented. Broadcasting station - WGY, here, for example, has drawn up a schedule of sports events which will be broadcast to its fans this fall, and expects to got a following of many thousands of additional fans by this method. The schedule includes all eastern games of any consequence. The world series, of course, will be broadcast not only by WGY, but by WJZ. WEAF and its chain of broadcasters, WAHG and perhaps one or two other independent broadcasters. It will be the greatest event in radio sihee the political conventions last year. ' Station WAHG of (Richmond Hill, L. I., expects to have its mobile broadcasting station report the world series games to the fans by short wave rebroadcasting. Thornton Fisher, famous sports reporter, and sports announcer for WAHG, will be at the scenes. The mobile station's call letters are WGMU. WGMU will travel back and forth between football games, also reporting to radio fans from the spot, through WAHG. Its sister radio reporter Is WGRU, the radio yacht, which follows water sports and reports them to fans through WAHG. ILL IS LATEST RADIO STATION CHICAGO, Sept. 12. The University of Illinois is to have a new 1000-watt broadcasting station. The call letters of the new station are to be WILL. The station is a, gift of Boetius Sullivan, of Chicago, presented to the university as a memorial for his father, a prominent figure for many years in Illinois political circles. It is expected that WILL -will be ready for operation by homecoming day in October. Extensive plans are being made to use the station for experimental purposes and to provide instruction and entertainment for residents of the surrounding district. One of the plans under consideration is to equip tha classrooms of the Illinois district schools with loudspeakers and have a regular program pf lectures by university professors Medal For Inventor 'Sir Arthur Stanley, . president of the Wireless League of England, has offered a gold medal tor tha best in vention in radio, produced in the next six months. This award is open only to members of the league. U. S. Census Report The official government census .re port for 1923 sets the total value of radio appliances for that year at vl4,l76,zg& That doesn't include the value - of motor generators and vacuum tubes. , For Dog Owners Dog Ipvers should tune in on station WOR, of Newark, New Jersey, every Monday evening. Dr. George Watson Little, famous veterinarian, delivers a series of talks on dogs at this time. Russian Radio Show The soviet government is preparing to sponsor an international radio show at Moscow, the latter part of this month, foreign apparatus shipped to this exhibit will be" dutyfree. HEADPHONES NEED ATTENTION . Headphones that hav&been in serv ice for a year or more should be in spected by removing the cap and diaphragm. The mounting screws hold ing the horseshoe magnet in place should be tightened. Remove any dirt cr particles of steel that may be col-lectinir on Dole nieces. The dianhrncrm should be inspected to ascertain if it has become bent and if so, it should be replaced with a new one. The scews holding the telephone cord tips should be tightened, but not removed, and reversed, as this will disturb the polarity of the unit, affecting signals. If the diaphragm has become weakened and touches the pole pieces, it should be turned over on its reverse side, which will correct the trouble., ' . " SHORT SOCKET POSTS If Wie socket binding post is not long enough to hold Beveral loops of bus .wire remove the binding post screw and replace it with a longer one. .'. Radio Revenue j May Double CLEVELAND, Sept. 12. Ex- pectation of nearly twice the business in radio " sales this year, over that of 1924, is I shown by the statement of one I of . the largest radio battery manufacturers here. . This asserts that ' $70,000,000 will be spent on radio batteries during the next radio year. Last year's sale of radio bat- teries amounted to $45,000,000. TO COAST GUARD WASHINGTON, Sept. 12. Suppose two cutters of the United States Coast Guard are guarding a rum-running vessel but, after many days, relief is sought so that the cutters' standing guard , may ' replenish its food and fuel supplies. Meantime, however, foggy Weather sets in and the locations of the patrol boats are not known( thus making relief impossible. This condition is not likely to occur -on future rum-chasing expedi tions by virtue of the installation of 100 radio direction finders on as man boats of the coast guard. Now the seventy-five-foot': patrol boats, while cruising around in search of liquor smuggling ships, can determine their positions, as well as find out the locations of mother ships, by means of these radio ' direction finders. " -, , . The type of radio direction finder installed on 100 boats of the coast guard is simple in design. It consists of a coil of wire, four turns of ignition cable, mounted on a revolving rod or mast. The captain of a ship merely has to revolve this coil. of wire until maximum signal strength from the transmitting sta tion is obtained. Then, the bearings of the vessel are read on a scale with reference to the ship's head. If the 100 cutters of the coast guard that have been equipped with radio direction finders measure up to expectations, eventually all of the approximately 250 cutters, patrol boats and destroyers of this Government soryice will be provided with this1 type of. radio equipment. v t Short-wave and long'-wavo transmitting and receiving outfits have been already installed- 'on the coast guard cutters.' With the inclusion! of direction finders this A branch of the Government will have 'the most complete' broadcasting and receiving stations afloat. ' f ' The organized warfare against illicit rum activities on the high seas is largely responsible- for the installation of such fraborate floating radio stations. Without 'rapid and Telia-, ble communication facilities, the coast-guard rum chajrers cannot hope to copewith elusive, law-defying rum runners.,": ..i ,'.(" '"--; . To Report Air Race Thorton Fisher, sports announcer for station WAHG, ai .Richmond Hill, Long Island, is going to fly over the course of ' the coming " Pulitzer Trophy air race at Mitchell Field, and then tell WAHG fans how it feels at four miles a minute. That will be In preparation of the big race on October . 10, when Fisher will report it through his mobile station, WGMU. CAUSES LOSS OF ENERGY ...When the. rotoivof , a variable -condenser or tickler coil passes too close to the secondary coil a bad effect is introduced, Bimilar to that of adding a vernier condenser.. Besides detuning the set, it causes a loss of energy through absorption.. ! . " TO DRY TUNING COILS Moisture collecting in - the insulation of the tuning coils will cause weak signals and broad tuning. A good drying out in he sunlight or by placing the set near a stova or radia-q tor will remedy the trouble. - 'V 'i""""' "Jfc-''liWf',"J AID WW,- Mi k i 0 SHORT GUT TO WEALTH WASHINGTON, Sept. 12. Radio is discouraged as a short" cut to wealth, in advice given to fans and other enthusiasts by Dr. J. H. Dellinger, chief Of the. radio laboratory of the U. S.' Bureau of Standards and president of the' Institute of Radio Engineers. "There need be no, forty-niners' rush to the "gold fields," is the way he puts, his warning. "I am told," he adds, "that only one In a thousand ot the radio- patents that are filed ale of any value to radio.- And only a fraction of that traction bring -returns to their inventors.- ' "Radio continues an 'expanding in dustry, and at the present moment there may. be a slightly greater return in it than in other fields. But it by no means follows that the same skill or initiative or brains or personality or work put into radio will yield mors money than in anything else during, say, the next ten years. - "It has been said that the- opportunities in Vadio are a thousandfold greater today than ten years ago. Yes, but 11 tbere are a thousand times as many people in it, the opportunity for each one is now exactly what it was then. The laws of supply and de mand work rather fast. "I am somewhat inclined to think that at the present moment people are. going over into, radio a little faster than, the total number of existing opportunities warrants. This opinion may be wrong; a similar ppinion might have been held of the automobile industry five or ten years ago, and yet the automobile-industry is by no means today strewn with the wrecks of blighted careers." Short Cuts Things to Know in Building and Operating, a Receiver f , When it is inconvenient . to use a hydrometer, taka a' reading of the A-battery with a low voltage voltmeter. This should read -6.6 volts when full.. The battery needs charging when the voltmeter reads as low as 6.4. Round out the tone and cut down static noises by hooking a fixed condenser ' across the loud-speaker terminals.. Proper capacity of condenser can b determined by experimentation. ' Tf VftTI.'

In the super, different tubes can be tried in the sockets by juggling until the, right combination is fo'und.

The results obtained for the additional tubes beyond five or six will not pay for the difference in cost or upkeep. UIVLilNUrt nTFYmniT ri i ujmiiui i SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 12. The deaf may hear, the dumb speak. Doctors may hear the heartbeats even in an unborn Dane by means oi new Inventions in the radio field displayed at the San Francisco Exposition and Convention. On the final night of the show a new electric stethoscope put out by the Western Electric Company was given a demonstration by broadcasting from the glass-fronted studio in view of thousands attending the ex-, position. The pulsations of the human heart were broadcast by way of KLX so that thousands of people for hundreds of miles around could listen to a comparison between the beating of a diseased heart and a normal one. Dr. Thomas J. Crowley, assisted by two patients, gave explanatory comments. ' ; And a doctor listening in by radio from his own office gave confirmatory independent diagnosis! The new stethoscope is so sensitive that it reveals . sounds in th doctors. Yet all sounds save those to, -which the diagnostician wishes to listen can be cut out. Artificial Speech ' Another device is an artificial larnyx for the dumb, whose vocal cords have been removed. A rubber cap covers an orifice in the patient'a tbroat and a tube connects to a mouthpiece. To the tube is attached a little sound box containing an arti- bcial membrane. The patient sneaks silently into this and his silent words are eon-verted into sound by the membrane, n . .. i , . . . i , . , xy tignienmg or loosening me membrane, the patient can have a bass, tenor, alto or soorano voice as de- sirea, (ana may even sing in eu registers. Still another invention gives scien tists exact methods of measuring the percentage loss vi hearing in- tha Annt Tha nofiont llefana n nnni covering every octave within normal hearing, and when the sounds art lost the diagnostician records the loss on a chart, from which at the end of the test an average is drawn. This electrical audiometer is also an aid in determining the cause ol deafness, and will be invaluable, to physicians in giving them exact .data as to the loss or gain of hearing over a protracted period, so that they may accommodate their treatment accord ingly. . i To Test Pupils A similar but less exact device en ables school teachers to test the hearing of class students, as many as twelve at a time. The response of phonograph record receding or gaining in sound as each repetition is re-t corded on a chart-by each student. Comparison of these results with a master chart held by the teacher gives accurate information regarding the aural capacities of each child.. An improved hearing, device for the deaf on the -vacuum tube principle was also on display at the Pacific Radio Show, giving the deaf a greatly increased range of possible hearing. A professor at Stanford University has been enabled by this device to attend conferences at which many speakers -were gathered about a table, and to take part in discussions for the first time in twenty years. The new device is portable and Mil.

RADIO AMATEURS LINK CONTINENTS HARTFORD, Conn., Sept. 12. A round-about path that furnishes some new distance records for amateur radio communication was pursued by a message from Chefoo, China, to this city. The message hdd its origin at the radion station NlrtJGr on board U. S. S. Pillsbury at Chefoo. Its. destl nation was the American Radio Relay League here. A startling demonstration of the cflicien&y of the short wave was the fy-st lap covered by the massage. Edmundo Guevara of Vilcum, Chile, almost 12,000 miles around the earth from Chefoo, took the message. Guevara passed the message to 6JP in San Francisco,; from which it was relayed to Hartford. , News to Break In v Station WJZ, in New York, has Inaugurated the plan of breaking into the regular programs with news bulletins of important events. Thus no time will be lost in getting the latwt news to the fans. . WORTH KNOWING ' An Insulated wire will pick up the broadcast programs just as easily as a bare wire, as the waves penetrate the covering without the least difficulty. If the lead-in is insulated it will act as a part of the aerial. DISTORTION FROM SPEAKER Sound vibrations are transmitted in great strength to the tubes when the loud speaker is resting on top of a radio cabinet. This will cause the grids and filaments to vibrate, which distorts the music. Keep the loud speaker off the cabinet and direct the sound away from the set. ToiftMixRdmm X.vvv s jy'-rs.
