To the layman, tadio hat always
been a dark secret. How this should
be it a wonder, at there are many
science more dirticult to tinder, land
than wirrle. and there are numer
out things Irtt interesting to learn.
There are these salient uliectt of
radio that the amateur must learn
ahnut to understand the game com
pletely: electromagnetic wave, wave
lengths, ether, aerial, tuning coil, de
tector, condenser, receivers and
The elder through which magnetic
waves travel from broadcasting ,ta

link of science, ' states Raymond
Francis Yates, one of .the foremost
experts on radio. To the layman it
is the air itself, so we'll let it rest at
Electromagnetic waves' are scc
irons shut out through the ether in
forms of invisible waves to he ab
sorbed by magnetic forces in the
form of steel obstructions, aerials,
mountains and radio receiving sets.
These waves may be likened in
theory to waves created on water
when a stone is thrown into it. The
length of electromagnetic waves is
measured from crest to crest. And
as electric waves travel 186.000 miles
a second, their length will depend
uDon the number of waves passing
through a given point in one second.
In other words, the wave length de
pends upon the- frequency.' The
waves in radio are .created by heavy
electric discharges, made possible
by broadcasting stations. Light,
radio and heat waves differ only in
length. Waves used m radio are
extremely long. Heat waves are
shorter and light waves are still
Direct current 'must he used with
the audio detector receiving set, a
highly sensitive device. .
It is different from alternating cur
rent in that direct current flows con
tinuously in one direction and, there
fore, creates high frequency to
eencrate radio waves. Such a fre
quency becomes- unmanageable and
leaps off into space, that is, it leaves
the wire or circuit through which it
is flowing and jumps out into the
ether, taking on the form of an elec

set it to store ui electricity, dis
charging the lull charge at once and
under high tension. A condenser,
when once fully charged, can cli
charge and recharge itself many
thoiuaud timet in a space of a sec
ond. Which makes our imagination
bump into a stone wall!
1 he vacuum tube and detector will
be discussed in another article. Let
us rest with the know ledge th.it a
vacuum tub it capable of producing
continuous electromagnetic waves.
Producing the waves is half the bat
tle of radio. Detecting them is the
other half. We have learned that
an aerial and ground are necessary
in receiving and transmitting. To
the aerial is attached what is called
a "tuning coil." an instrumnt with
which is added wire to the aerial to
be of the same length as the aerial
from which the waves are sent.
Radio wavs are measured in meters.
A meter is .10.17 inches. If a J0O.
meter wave is approaching an aerial
there h only one way to induce it
to enter; we must have 200 meters
of wire in our circuit.
Electromagnetic waves are weak
ened somewhat on going through a
receiving set. ror that reason, a de
tector is necessary to revive them, as
it were. It is the function ot the de
tector to doctor ut the currents that

such as galena or carborundum, held
in a metallic cup with a tiny spring
or wire resting on its surface. Tins
device allows the currents to pass in
one direction onlv. If a station is
able to transmit 50 miles, all the re
ceiving stations within that distance
that have properly attuned will re
ceive the message. ,

A Great Joke.

THE GLANDS REGULATING PER
SONALITY,' by Dr. Berman, pur
Ilthed hy MarMIMan, t, being com
pared with Huxley', Wrttlnaa.
In the very title of the book is an
indication of the viewpoint, the type
of treatment and the worth of Dr.
Bcrman's work. The- viewpoint is
apparently a struggle between two
motives. On the one hand, Berman
seems to share the native wish -of
every physiologist to "reduce" psy
chic life to chemical processes.
Loeb is a modern extremist of this
view. He looks forward to the
time when scientists will make pro
toplasm in the laboratory. But,
should this occur, far from being a
support of mechanism, it will be a
final demonstration that man makes
his organism and not vice versa.
Perman must recognize the sim
ple truism that life is not the Chemi
cal process, even that of a ductless
gland, but is the chemical process
recognized as such. The actual
truth is that life regulates the. duct
less glands, that is, builds up such
glands as are required in the ever
present task of mastering (adapt
ing), an environment. There is ac
cordingly a rather amusing con
trast between .Pr. Berman's "robus
tious pajhos" with which he speaks
of "the religion of science," and the
loose way he shows what the actual
significance of science is.
It is unusual for a biologist to
have the penchant for phrases that
Berman shows. In this respect he
contrasts sharply with Sherrington,
Cannon, Pawlow. who arc the rec
ognized authorities. On the subject
of endocrinology. Compare hi3
flowing style with the cautious pro
cedure of Morpsn. Jennings, Wilson
and Charles Child; the conclusion j
will be that Berman is to be regard
ed as a popularizer of a highly dif
ficult subject; and like all popular
izors he speaks with a tone of cer
tainty about matters that are far
from established. His "analysis" of
Napoleon and dozens of other great
personages are, of course, dare
devil inferences; they are oictur
esque if not actually physico
chemical. Molly was a native daughter of
south California and the old family
home, Alloway place, was a notable
center of hospitality. Harriet V. C.
Ogdcn. in her new book, "Then Came
Molly." writes .of the Alloway fam
ily. "The Alloway family, besides
the heavenly creed bequeathed to
them by their ancestors and comfort
ably accepted and carefully lived up
to, held an earthly creed consist
ing of three parts: the United States
is the finest country in the world.
South Carolina is the finest state in
the onion and the Alloways are the
finest family in the state."
Molly Prioleau was of the house of
Alloways. The author has made her
a girl of sterling characteristics and
has fashioned a story that has one
setting in South Carolinia and the
other in New York. The book has
no overtones of thrilling situations,
but it carries the reader along in a
pleasing manner. It is an interest
ing romance. Molly goes to the. great
city, studies art, and she meets the
man who fills her life completely.
