Best Wishes To The s»' - B HOPE BROADCASTING (0 On The FORMAL OPENING FRIDAY NOON DEC. -12* Of Hope's New . RADIO STATION KXAR 1490 ON YQUR DIAL We ore proud of Hope's new radio station, and that we were selected to do all the electrical work. City Electric Co. Broadcast Continued From Page One federal Communication Commis- ion regulations, and is designed to give the maximum performance or KXAR's signal in competition with other stations for good-listen- ng whether day or night. Local" stations are limited to 250 watts. They outnumber all other classes of radio stations combined, • many times over. But the 'locals" are crowded into just six requencies for the whole United States. If your radio set points to any of the following numbers you are listening to a 250-watt "local" just like Hope's KXAR: 1230 — 1240 — 1340 — 1400 — 1450 — 1490. The commercial broadcasting band runs from 550 to 1600. Everything below 1200 is reserved for clear-channel and regional stations. Here's a sample of how the FCC divides up frequencies so America's 2,000 radio stations can be accb- modated on the air: We'll start with San Antonio's WOAI, which has 50,000 watts on 1200 k.c.— a clear channel frequency. "Clear channel" 'means there is no other station in the U.S. on that frequency at night. There may be a few "locals' 1 , but they are licensed for daytime operation only —and are far enough away not to interfere with the free-channel station's daytime signal. It so happens that WOAI has no compe- ition on 1200 k.c. either day or night. The next frequency, 1210 k.c., also is clear channel. It is held by WCAU, Philadelphia, Pa., with 50,000 watts. WCAU has 1210 k.c. alone at night, but there are four daytime license holders —in Illinois, Michigan, North Carolina and Ohio, imited to 250 or 1,000 watts, and o far away that theirs and Philadelphia's signals don't cross one another during the day. Another clear-channel is 1220 c.c.; and then two 250-watt "local" -hannels, 1230 k.c. and 1240 k.c.. But after that we have a straight un of frequencies assigned to a hird class of station—the regional, vih either 1,000 or 5,000 watts power, such as KARK, Little Rock. This particular group of regional "requencies begins at 1250 k.c. and •uns continuously (except for four 'local" frequencies previously mon- ioned) all the way to 1500. There the pattern changes to clear chan- iel, and the "clear" runs up through 1580. Then the last two positions at the top of the dial, 1590 and 1600 k.c., are regional. And that's the pattern by which the Federal Communications Commission licenses 2,000 stations in the U.S.A., giving every sizable city a radio voice but at the same ime .making sure that each will operate without causing interference to other stations in their respective territories. If a ship is too stable^ that is. too little inclined to roll with the seas, the result is a short, quick roll often uncomfortable to passengers. Heart disease, the' leading cause of death in the United States, accounted for 30 per cent of all* U.S. deaths in 1944. If the individual "period of roll" for a ship happens to correspond to the "wave period" of the water in which she is cruising, she will roll excessively.

An announcement stated twice as many Donbas miners are building private homes this year over last year and that more than 5,000 cottges were finished during the summer. ;iv| '*t*|W! In addition to the individual cottages —which are being built by the miners themselves with the aid of bank credits and the collaboration of the mining authorities —apartment houses and two-family brick buildings are going up. The Donbas was one of the most devastated areas of the war. Each miner can obtain a 10,000 rouble credit for ' period of 10 years which he begins paying off in equal installments a year after he moves into his house. Each miner building a home is given —by Ws local Sovet —a plot of land big enough for the house, a small barn, chicken sheds and a garden or orchard. The cottages are of individual design but retain the traditions of Ukrainian architecture. They are mostly built of stone and slag blocks and usually have three rooms.

Without leaving Ireland, and working only with maps. Farmer Bennett says he has divined "miles of uranium" in a certain British I possession, the name of which he would not divulge. To understand Bennett's methods, you have to understand water divining, which is something like the Indian rope trick, inasmuch as those who have seen it know all about it. while those who have not seen it swear it is a fake and cannot be done. The ordinary water diviner is remarkable enough. He walks across a field with a hazel wan'fl in his hand, and the wand trembles and points downwards at the point where -water lies beneath the soil. Farmer Bennett, however, does his water divining without leaving the house, and letters of thanks from India, Australia, Now Zealland, the United States, South Africa, Sweden, Denmark, Holland, Belgium and France, indicate that his technique has some success. Bennett, who is a partner in Kelly and Bennett, Water and Mineral Diviners, recently gave an exhibition of his powers at the engineer's office of the Cork Board of Health. Holding a hazel rod over on ordnance may he traced the course of an underground stream at Currabinny, where he said the boring must mbe 160 feet deep. At Monkstown he predicted a good supply, 40 yards wide and 80 feet deep. It was reported that unfortu- ' nately there was a house on the land at Monkstown, but the prediction of the Currabinny water is being placed before the local government authority and subject to their approval borings will be made. As for the "miles of uranium" Bennett said he -had already been visited by a representative of the j British government in this connection, but they had not succeeded in coming to terms.

' The survey was made by Dr. Armin Rotzel. Frankfurt municipal medical officer. The results were made public by Orphans, Inc., an American volunteer relief agency. Of 851 schbol children born in 1940, there were 402 "considerably underweight with underdeveloped constitutions and definite symptoms of diseases caused by lack of certain fdods," the report said.
