SOLYES PROBLEM OF STAYING HOME Youthful Wireless Operator is a Philosopher with His Other Talents. TALES TO FAS OFF FRIENDS By A. R. GROH. Douglas Burghardt's call is "9 W. R." HtN uss a 200-meter wave link and the continental code. Of course, you don't know what all t' .'j is about. So I'll explain. j By day, Douglas Burghin' is an employe oi The lice engraving depart ment. But by night he is a amateur wireless operator. At his home 5023 North Twenty fourth street, he sit down to his transmitte-. The mvsterious current obeys his will. His thoughts leap out, hundreds of miles across the country. He "talks" to other boys in Dubuqie, in Dallas, .ex., in Buffalo, N. V., boys whom he has never seen. but who are his wireless pa'.s. 1 stopped Douglas as he was pass ing through the offic". He told me about the amateur wire ess organi zation of this country. Wonderfully well intormed he is ind Ins conversa tion is full of interest. He t .Iks of Hanove . Germany: Ar lington, Va.

Omaha is in the ninth district Amateurs have to use a "wive link" less than 200 meters long, so as not to interfere with government sta tions which use wave links, some times thousands of meters long. Ships usea 600-meter wave link. "In time of war," this serious lad informs me, "wc would give our sta tions to the government and, even if the enemy cut all the telegraph lines, messages could be relayed by the amateur stations. We have to prom ise to do this." (Let our enemies beware.) "But doesn't it cost a good deal to have a wireless station?" I asked. Now mark the words of wisdom that fell from this boy's lips. "I think I've spent about $100 on mine," he said? "but I think I have gotten more good out of it than that. You learn a lot, and besides, if I didn't have the wireless I'd want to be out at night, doing something else." Aha, Douglas, quite true I You hit the nail on the hed.

Relatives Usually Respond In Blood Transfusion Cases The relief of patients by transfusion of blood is not a serious problem in Omaha hospitals. Usually, when transfusion is necessary, relatives or friends respond with their life blood. Only occasionally is it necessary to pay the person whose blood is trans iused to save a life. Whether the person is a relative, friend or stranger, his blood is care fully tested before he contributes to the life of another. In a few cases those whose veins were tapped were paid $25 to $50 for this service. Most of the patients :: are anemirs. In some of the large cities of the country subjects are selected from such institutions as workingmen's hotels or charitable shelters. On an average one out of four are accepted.
