Five-Tube Tuned Radio Frequency (Two-Stage Tuned Radio, Detector, and Two Stages of Audio Frequency) Receiver Using Lcw-Loss Doughnut Coupler in First Stage. The latest improvement in radio ap­ paratus, the low-loss doughnut coil, can he used in any of the neutrodyne and tuned radio frequency to stabilize the circuit. Its use in place of the customary aperiodic coupler used for tuning the first stage will improve any existing receiver and is a good piece of apparatus to incorporate in any re­ ceiver. . The Interference, noise'and general tuning qualities of the first stage are amplified and eventually become the output of the receiver. If the first stage is broad in tuning, the receiver will very likely lack selectivity. The action of the first stage has a great deal to do with the ultimate perform­ ance of the receiver. Usual Type of Transformer. The usual type of transformer used has a single-layer wound coil on n tube, with-a tap taken off for the an­ tenna connection. The field of the magnetic lines of force around the ends of the coil, created by the flow of current through the wire, spreads out and sprays nearby pieces of apparatus, causing distortion and making the re­ ceiver unstable in operation. The low-loss dougljnut type of coil, on the other hand, has an entirely self- contained field that prevents magnetic spraying effects. The low loss feature of the coil is due to the fact that the wires are indented at every other face around the coil,- thereby lowering the distributed capacity and resistance losses below that of ordinary coils to a noticeable degree. To incorporate the coil in a regular neutrodyne or tuned radio-frequency receiver, all that is necessary is to re­ move the present coil used for tuning the aerial circuit and replace it with a low-loss doughnut coupler. The same condenser can he used to tune the receiver providing it is of .0005 mfd. capacity. Parts Needed. To construct the complete receiver as shown in the diagram, the following list of apparatus will be needed: 1 low-loss doughnut coupler. 2 radio-frequency transformers, tuned type. (Low-loss doughnut coil transformers may be used here with excellent results.) 3 .0005 mfd. variable condensers, preferably straight line frequency low- loss condensers so that the lower wave­ length stations will he separated far apart enough to make tuning easy. 5 standard vacuum tube sockets and five rheostats, 25 ohm for the C 301-A and 40 ohm for the C 209 type tubes. 2 low-ratio audio-frequency trans­ formers, 3 to 1 ratio. 1 .00025 mfd. fixed grid condenser; 2 megohm grid leak; single-circuit phone jack, binding posts, wire, a 7 by 24 or 20-inch panel and a 7 by 23-inch baseboard will complete the list of ap­ paratus necessary. Follow out the wiring diagram in building the receiver, spacing the regu­ lar tuned radio-frequency transform­ ers at least 0% inches apart. If the low-loss doughnut coil transformers are used, as well as the coupler, then the spacing can suit the arrangement of the rest of the apparatus in yout­ set without fear of interstage coup­ ling. Our atin American Friends Who Live Am ong Us Are Our Best Friends By CHARLES E. HUGHES, Secretary of State. diminishing effect. There are those among us who constantly assail our motives in rela­ tion to the Latin American. What a pity it is that among our fellow citi­ zens arc those who cannot be fair to their own government 1 And, of course, there are those in other countries who ever seek to create a feeling of animosity toward us. But I am happy to say that these efforts, however persistent, are of The number is constantly increasing of those who know the truth. Our Latin American friends who live among ns, wh# know our purposes and ideals, who intelligently observe our activities, taking into account both preponderant sentiment and governmental ac­ tion, arc our best friends. We wish to have prosperous and independent neighbors with whom we can deal in peace and to our mutual advantage. Wo harbor no thought of aggression upon anyone. Instead of encouraging the exploitation oi other peoples we arc constantly by word and deed diminishing the oppor­ tunities for it and throwing the weight of governmental influence against it.

As she rounded the corner $ the building, she was dismayed to ^ her train disappearing down ^ tracks, just too far away to cat^ Ptisliing the sleeve of her coat aslfe she consulted the watch on her “Five minutes s!ow,’\ she mutter^ In exasperation. ‘'Wouldn't you thi^ this watch would keep better titnei I just set it last night, too.\ Why do we women buy watches fo beauty instead of for service, and tty do avo not take care of them after ^ get them? What would we think of j business man who carried n fussy timepiece with works so fragile ^ delicate that it was always gettingom of order? Yet wc, too, have to trains and meet friends by appoint, ment, and get off on time for mating and club meetings. Another thing, women do not taka the care of their watches that men are in the habit of taking. A man’s mug sacred duty and habit is to wind fo watch the last thing before lie getsti bed at night. A woman winds bg watch one day, when she Is goingo t wear it—and then leaves It tying ^ her dressing table for the next tm days, when she is staying quietly at home and depending\ upon the clockfi the living room. Her watch runs dun naturally, and has to be set and started up again, only to go unwound, perliain for another two days. The watche- perts tell us that the worst thing tint can happen to a watch is irregularity In winding. Ask almost any woman for the tin* and she glances dubiously at the plat­ inum bijou on her arm and says: Ta* fast, I think.” or “Sorry, my watd isn't running.” Yet there are tobehti excellent reliable timepieces that an encased in beautiful frames, If onlj Ave will buy them for the works art not for the case alone. But even thee will become useless unless we wild them and lnn e them, regulated fra time to time. , (Copyright.)’ MIDDLESEX t O a s is in Sahara T h a t Is P r o d u c t ive The oasis of Adrar is in the western, part of the Sahara desert In North Africa, east of the Spanish possession of Rio de Oro, of which It formerly A considerable square miles Is dates and grain raised for their mined.

An immense system of subterranean aqueducts, whose origin is lost in an­ tiquity, supplies the oasis Avith water. Not even the legends of the most an­ cient native tribes contain a history of their beginning. Adrar lies at the bot­ tom of a natural depression that a marvelous irrigation system connects Avith reservoirs feeding the surround­ ing plains at a higher elevation. The natives Avith no better implements than rude scoops and picks have dug, at a depth of from 150 to 200 feet be­ low the surface of the desert, spa­ cious tunnels that extend for miles. It rains but once in ten years at any gh-en point in the Sahara, and this sparse rainfall is conserved by collect­ ing the ground moisture from a great expanse of territory at Adrar.
