Loan to Germany
Is Sole Solution
roreicn Minuter ism on
Commission In Regard to
Advance of 5.000,000,.
. 000 Cold Marks.
Bf HENRY WALES,
l'ri, May 14. The German for-
eignflniniier, Ilerr Hermes, called
on the reparation toiiitiuHii lu
initiate conversations fur the pur
loe of obtaining 5.000.000,000 gold
mark (ahout $1.0.000,000) loan.
The allied reparations commiion
er believe tlial Germany is willing to
lul ud custom and a certain ier
' ccntage of export as a guarantee for
a loan, but they deny that Cemtany
will be asked to surrender tobacco
and liquor monopolies.
it seems aurcd to the reparations
commission' that Germany will pay
the 15.000,000 gold mark (about
W.750.000) due Monday, but it it
Mated that it will be impossible for
Germany to pay the installment due
That extruding Germany credit
for $1,250,000,000 is the ole solution
of the reparation difficulty is ad
mittcd everywhere. It is pointed out
that many allied and neutral Ameri
can bank hold huge quantities of
paper marks, which are extremely
depreciated now, but which will be
come absolutely worthless if Ger
many is unable to obtain outside aid
and continue to print currency.
Swiss. Dutch, Scandinavian, Spanish
ind even Italian, French, Relgian and
English bankers are holding their
mark firmly and are in favor of
granting a loan. It i believed here
that enormous amounts of paper
marks are owned by American banks
also. , .!
Spanish War Hero

Move on Foot to Recompile
Maj. Ar S. Rowan for Ser
vices 22 Years Ago.
i Washington, .May. 14. Maj. A. S.
Rowan, V. S. A., now living in re
tirement in Berkeley, CaL, may yet
receive official recognition for his
famous exploit of 22 years ago, when
he penetrated the lines of the Spanish
army, in Cuba and delivered to Gen.
Garcia, commanding the Cuban
forces in the interior, an important
message from President McKinlcy.
'.Some ot Maj. Rowan's friends, in
cluding Senator Shortidge of Cali
fornia, believe that the officer who
performed the exploit with which al
most every school boy in the United
States is now familiar, is entitled to
some tangible recognition for his
services. At their instance the board
the case and will report within a few
"-fit-is pointed out that, as Maj.
Rowan's performance did not involve
"actual conflict with the enemy be
yond the xaH of duty" in that, his task
was" execution of the order of his
superior to find Garcia in the Cuban
jungles and was not "extraordinary
heroism in action," he cannot be
awarded the congressional medal of
honor or the distinguished service
cross. He may, however, be given
the distinguished service medal for
gallant and meritorious services in a
position of responsibility.

"Meanest Man' Lists
Mother as "Servant?
for Ocean 'Passage
Washington. May 14. The mean
est man yet discovered, in the opin
ion of the United States immigration
authorities, is a Spanish alien, domi
ciled in America, who returned from
a visit to the old country recently,
traveling as a first-class passenger
on a liner in the steerage of which
Jie had aboard his mother, classify
ing her as a "domestic servant."
Secretary of Labor Davis, although
concealing the man's name, in
honor of mothers' day, signed an
order Saturday declaring that al
though the "facts astound one who
has learned to honor and revere
motherhood," the mother would be
admitted to the United States for
six months. The son was required,
however, to give a $500 bond to be
held by the. immigration authorities
to guarantee that his mother "will
receive at your house the treatment
to which a mother is entitled."
Follow These Directions for
Construction of Amplifier
' - O S .,

mm BL - " " - aift
In order to receive radiophone
broadcasts with sufficient volume to
be heard plainly all over a room with
a horn attachment or loud speaker,
it is usually necessary to employ
what is called an amplifier.
A two-stage amplifier may be
constructed which will greatly ampli
fy weak signals to a point where
they may be heard some distance
from the loud speaker.
In the building of the amnlifier.
practically all of the parts may be
bought except where the builder has
a machine shop. Even then it is
probable that the time spent would
not justify their making. From di
rections supplied by Fred Swain, a
radio expert, the following materials
are needed in the construction of an

Drill Holes First.
The panel should be drilled first
two holes midway between the top
and bottom of the panel and each
three inches trom an end. These
are to accomodate the shafts of the
two rheostats (See Fig. 2) which arc
mounted on the back side with the
shafts projecting out the front. The
knobs are pushed On these two
shafts and secured by means of the
setscrews m them. Two holes should
be drilled to accomodate the little
bolts of each rheostat which hold
the rheostats to the panel. Two
holes should be drilled in each, of
the lower' left and righthand corners
oi the pane tor binding posts as
shown in Fig. 1. Additional holes
should be drilled directly above each
rheostat knob within an inch of the
top in some such an arrangement
as suits the builder's taste. See Fig.
3). The vacuum tubes are to be
mounted directly back of these holes
which afford the operator a view of
his tubes at all times.
The wood base should next be at
tached to the rear of and at the lower
edge of the panel by means of wood
screws. Upon this base is mounted
the rest of the apparatus. The two
sockets (See Fig. 1 and 2) which
hold the vacuum tubes should each
be mounted about two inches back
of their respective rheostats setting
squarely, with their posts marked

A sweeping verdict for QUALITY
negative and positive nearest the
More Binding Posts.
The two transformers should be
mounted within an inch of the rear
edge of the wood base, one in the
left rear corner and the other .bade
of and midway between the two
sockets as shown in Fig.: 3. They
should stand at right angles to each
other. Two binding posts are
mounted in the middle and close to
the left hand edge of the base. Four
other binding posts , art mounted
close to the rear edge and to the
right of the transformers as shown.
The set is then ready to wire, which
should be done with approximately
No. 14 copper wire. " Little difficulty
will be experienced in this if the dia
gram is closely adhered to. i
The amplifier matches the detector
and receiver previously described in
last Sundays Bee and may be used
with it by connecting the terminals
marked "Dct" to . those marked
"phones on the receiver and detec
tor. The adjustments of the ampli
fier are not critical and should cause
no trouble in operating.' If a load
sneaker is to be used it is connected
to the posts marked ,(phones."

A A two-stage amputier is not in it
self a radio receiving set. It Is a piece
of auxiliary apparatus which run be used
with the "three-circuit regerstive" set or
any other vacuum tube set. Its purpose is
to increase the loudness ot signals re
ceived and the range. ;
