S. Guion of 706 Crescent avenue, Atwater Kent dis- tribntor, announced the introduction of a t)rand new snper-heterodyne ra- di~ manufactured forSouthern Cali- ft)rlli~t fans. Entirely new, this Atwater Kent Super-Heterodyne for Southern Cali- fornia brings together the combined advantages of power, selectivity, tone control, noise control, antenna adjust- e,- and beauty of cabinet design With all of these combined features there is no hissing or crackling that fre- quently hampers super-heterodync radios. The antenna adjuster makes it pos- sible to adjust any length or design of antenna to the particular receiving set, regardless of location. The Southern California Atwater Kent super-heterodyne combines pow- er with finer selectivity and through the new tone and noise control the characteristic disagreeableness of a heterodyne radio have been eliminat- ed. Also, Atwater Kent technicians have eliminated the local and distant switch, supplanting it with a volume co,ntrol which now makes it possible to "case into" any station wheiher it be a local one or a distant one. The "blasting" that for yaars has accom- panied the use of the !'distant" switch on radios generally has been com- pletely overcome by this new volume control. In addition to these many advan- takes Atwater Kent experts have also made it possible for radk) fans to have a different station at each point of the clear vision dial, or a different station for each 10 kilocycles on the dial. In a demonstration before more than a score of radio experts Win Hancock tuned in distant sta- tionsfrom coast to coast with ease and clearness of local broadcasting. It was also revealed that the new super-hcterodyne radio is the receiv- ink set that A. Atwater Kent has so carefully guarded during its perfec- tion. It has been known for some time that the radio manufacturer was building a radio which wouldcom- bine the advantages of scveral types (,f receivers with tlle Atwater Kent Golden Voice tone, and yet be placLd ~m the market at n~ greater cost. Thv new Atwater Kent super-heterodync for S~,uthern California is the result ,~f this plan. ----: C : ---- SOCIAL AND PERSONAL City Att(wney Baker came over from Los Angeles on Monday, to at- tend the regular meeting of the Ava- hm City Council.
