HALL lor California PAGE ELEVEN MANY INVENTIONS COMBINED IN RADIO Absorbed in the recent development of radio, the public is prone to over- lo~k its indebtedness to the hundreds of inventors who, working over a pe- riod of centuries, have made radio possible. This is the declaration of Clarence A. Or'Brien, patent attorney and au- thority on basic inventions of Wash- ington, D. C., in a communication re- ceived recently by J. S. Guion, local Atwater Kent dealer. The average ra;o receiving set contains thousands of feet of copper wire--l 1,000 feet of fine wire in At- water Kent speaker alone--~Mr. Gui- on explained. The invention of draw- ing wire, O~Brien said, is ascribed to Rodolph of Nuremberg, about 1410. Mills for the drawing of wire were. set up in Nuremberg in 1563. Prior to that time wire was hammered out --wholly inadequate for the niceties of radio, where the wire is frequently finer than human hair. As a reminder of the t'adio audi- ence's obligation to the inventors of the telephone--- Alexander Graham Bell in 1875, Edison, Gray, Blake and others, O'Brien pointed out that the National Broadcasting company in its national network relies on from 35,- 000 to 50,000 miles of telephone wire. O'Brien in his communication point- ed out that the invention of the dyn- amo, essential in broadcasting, the transmission of power, the micro- phone, and many other similar inven- tions, all go hand in hand to make the radio possible. "All of these," O'Brien declared, in speaking of the inventoors, "and many others working in kindred fields have made discoveries without which radio as today known would he impo:qsil)le. If we go further into broadcast enter- tainment and investigate the begin- nings of the various musical instru- ments--the, organ, the violin, and oth- er orchestral pieces, we should again find a long list of inventors and con- tributors to the improvement of in- strumental music through the ages." --:o:-- "De choir will now sing, 'I'm Glad Salvation Is Free,' while Deacon )ones passes de hat. De congregation will please 'member dat, while salvation am free, we has to pay de choir for singin' about it. All will contribute accordin' to his means, an' not for hi~ meann ess."--Exch ange. Salesman (in boys' suits depart- ment): "Perhaps I should take some of the padding out of the shoulders." Willie: "Yes, and please could you put it in the trousers ?" --Legion Weekly.
