Science never stops.
Every day we hear of new inveir
tions and developments of some
scientific art. and just as the tele
phone and the automobile were de
vcloped for commercial use, so may
we look forward to radio becoming
one of the world's greatest factors
Eery day the spirit voices of
radio are about us. When we sit
comfortably at home or walk the
streets, the electrons of radio are
rushing about us at the rate of 186,
000 miles a second.
Waves Carry Voice.
We are amazed when we hear of
a person in Los Angeles listening to
a friend's voice in New York. In
reality, the man in Los Angeles does
not hear the voice of his friend in
New York. The easterner's voice
is translated into electrical impulses
and these impulses are carried along
the wire to the distant receiver.
where they become audible.
The two most important parts of
the telephone are the receiver and
the transmitter. We speak into the
transmitter and hold the receiver to
the ear. When we speak into
transmitter, the, sound waves that
our vocal organs set up strike
against a thin metal diaphragm,
which is set vibrating: in sympathy
with the voice of the speaker.
At a distant station, this vibrator
creating a current, enters the receiver
and produces an audible sound by
causing another diaphragm to vibrate
in unison with the diaphragm of the
In radio telephone, instead of
sendim these voices over a conduct
ing wire, wt must send them through
the ether. Direct currents must be
used to carry the voice without die
tortion. Continuous electromagnetic
waves must be used in radio tele-
Phony. Various devices are ued in
the broadcasting stations, which will
be treated in later installments.
Among them are the vacuum tubes,
alternators, condensers and trans
Continuous waves are created in
a transmitting set and if we place a
telephone transmitter in the proper
part of a continuous wave transmit

these waves in much the same man

and the vacuum tubes are used to
increase this modulation.

A child who feels keenly is blessed.
but she should have only the sim
plest pleasures. Such a child is as
excited by the anticipation as by the

possible. Above all, lead her to

disappointments of others. If she

Ford Club in

President of Dearborn Organ

Detroit. June 7. (By A. P.)
Plans for a nation-wide movement
to bring about tht candidacy of
Henry Ford for president in Ii4
were mapped at Dearborn. Mr.
Ford's suburban home, at a perma
nent organisation meeting of the
Henry for President club.
Similar clubs should be formed in
each congressional district of the
United States, it was decided, in
order to perfect a more closely knit
organization. This method, it was
pointed out, would show Mr. Ford's
strength in each district and insure
him of the prober congressional sup
port, should his ticket be returned
The club decided against adopting
a platform, preferring to leave Mr.
Ford free to work out hia own ideas
should he consent to enter the pres
idential race and to set forth for
himself the principles upon which he
would go before the people.
Rev. Dr. William Dawe, pastor of
the Dearborn Methodist Episcopal
church, was elected president of the
club. In addressing the gathering,
he declared Mr.. Ford was "the best
known citizen of the world today"
and was well fitted to head the gov
ernment and take the lead in launch
ing reforms he declared were nec
Every few centuries, Dr. Dawe
said, "a man appears at the time of
?;reat crisis and such at crisis con
ronts the world today. Perhaps
Mr. Ford has appeared for just such
an hour as this. The country needs
to start anew under the sort of lead
ership of which he ia capable. He
had many critics, but natural lead'
ers often are called fools and fana
tics. Christ was similarly criticized.'
