George Carey of the Omaha Cham

Merchant Marine association, an or
ganization for the furtherance of
shipping and merchant marine ac
livitie. has finished a two-weeks'
tour of big cities of the middlewest,
where he has met with a hearty
response front commercial and civic
organizations and business men.
"Shipping and merchant marine
will be one of the vital economic
problems of the middlewest when
the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence wa
terways project ha been put
through," Mr. Carey said.
"This project will make seaports
of practically all the cities on the
Great Lake and will move the mid
dle? west 1,500 miles nearer the ocean.
Because of this the middlewest,
which has always been considered
inland, is beginning to think and.
talk in maritime terms.

fcred by The Bee.
But Few Essentials.
The eentals of a receiving set of
Mnall wave length are: Head

coupler, $5: switch for primary, 45
cents: condener, $125: crystal de

purchased at practically any radio
store, though shipments will nut be
promised immediately on account of
a shortage of radio equipment. The
radio editor of The ttte will assit
in advice about purchasing and set
ting up radio outlit.
For a clearer tone in receiving,
the vacuum tube supplants the crys
tal detector hecaue of its rnitive

tal detector, however, is the logical
type for the biginucr.
To Change Set
It i neither necesary nor advis

less experimenter will desire to
change his set and add a vacuum or
audion detector. For best results in
setting, it is advUable to follow in
structions and diagrams as outlined
in practically any book on radio.
"The A. U. C. of Radio" is perhaps
the most instructive piece ot litera
ture on the subject.
In the near future, the radio edi
tor of The Bee will describe the
changes necessary to transform the
crystal set into a regenerative set.
AERIAL Term used interchange

wire from which electric energy ts
radiated into the ether and also the
wire by which the radiated energy is
AMPLIFIER A term u?cd to

AUDION A trade name given to
