R. B. Howell of Omaha delivered
an address on radio at the high
school and another one at the Meth
odist church. The meeting at the
church waa largely attended.
for High Voltage
Variable Current Control Is
HeionunejidVil for Vacuum
Radio receiving sets uing vacuum
lubes, either for detector or ampli
fiers, must be equipped with some
jrl tf a battery (or giving them
high voltage, This high voltage is
required to have the tube operate
properly and U abrolutcly esrntial.
It it called the It battery to distin
guish it from the A or six-volt bat
tery, and the proper voltage should
be 21',i volts. Both batteries mutt
be connected correctly, because if
the B battery happens to get con
nected with the filament circuit the
tube will burn out almost instantly.
There are several types of H bat
teries on the market and alt of them
are good. They last for mouths.
The amateur may find that his
particular vacuum tube will work the
best at I-' to 16 volts, but S the bat
tery gets lower the voltage will have
to be raised. For this kind of work
it is bee to get what is known as a
variable B battery, and they usually
come in larger sizes and cost more.
Make Own Battery.
Here's a little wrinkle in fixing up
your own B battery: In any electri
cal store you may j urchasc a box of
Everready flashlight batteries. These
come five in a box and the proper
size is 703. Leave the batteries in
the box and connect them all up
with short pieces of wire and a lit
tle solder. It will be seen that the
two contacts are made of brass and
that one is longer than the other.
The long one should be connected to
the inc of the battery and conse
quently is the negative side. The
short one is the positive side.
In connecting them up first leave
the long one for the external con
nection, then connect the short piece
of brass on the first cell to the long
piece on the second cell. Keep this
up on all the batteries and it will be
found that the short lead will be left
on the other end. If more B bat
tery voltage i1 required for an empli
fier, simply buy several additional
boxes of the batteries and connect
them to the first set.

A, Silly Song
By A CUCKOO BIRD
I'm the little brown jug and a song
I sing of the good old days when I
was king. For well do I remember
how I went to the fields with men
to plow. They kept me'clean and
corked up tight and filled me fresh
most every night. I sat in the shade
of a shock of wheat to which men
dragged their weary feet. They
drank from me and their eyes grew
bright, and some would sing , and
some would fight. I had more fnends
than a millionaire and was hailed as
the foe of care. But now unless I'm
filled with oil I never go where men
folks toil. No more they greet me
as a king and they fill me up with
any darn thing. Varnish, coaloil,
vinegar, paint some of 'ems clean
and some of 'em aint. Or else I sit
on the smokehouse shelf with noth
ing but flies inside myself. My form
men now on the junk heap chuck;
I'm the little brown jug all out of
