Many Tests Being Made to Determine
Practicability of College
Work in the organization of a sys-
tem of radio press service between the
various student newspapers of the
Conference has been carried on to a
limited extenit during the summer, and
tests have already been conducted be-
tween Big Ten wireless stations. Two
preliminary unofficial tests were run
off Friday and Saturday nights of last
week, while the -first official test was
conducted at 11:30 o'clock (Ann Arbor
time) last night.
Central Statkn Used
The Western Conference Radio News
service, operating under the Western
Conference Editorial association, and
establishing at the convention of that
body held here last spring, is in
charge of the work. At the present
time a single central station is used.
this being station "9ZN," 5525 Sheri-
dan road, Chicago,operating under the
central department of the American
Radio Relay league. R. H. G. Math-
ews, the chief operator, is said to
maintain an equipment superior to
most amateur o special stations, and
has four first grade commercial oper-
ators at work, thus maintaining an al-
most continuous watch.
It is planned at present to have this
central station take the news from
e~ch of the Conference universities
each night, and at about 11:30 central
standard time, broadcast it on a wave
length of 375 meters for the use of all
the student newspapers. It is for the
purpose of determining the practic-
aiity of this scheme that the tests
are being arranged.
Schools Well Equipped
All of the Big Ten universities main-
tain wireless stations. It is said, how-
ever, that the installations at Minne-
sota, Purdue and Wisconsin are sup-
erior to any of the rest, while that in
use on the Engineering building here
ranks fairly close to the top. The
long-distance transmitting apparatus
here, however, is of fairly old type,
all the new sets -of the local electrical
engineering department being limited
In 1916 the University set, the call
of which was and still is "8XA," did
some rather unusually long distance
work. On one occasion communica-
tion was established with Colon, Pan-
ama. Since that time, however, little
has been done with the exception of
some experimental work last spring.
This work included the handling of
basketball scores with Purdue and Ill-
inois universities. It is said that sev-
eral. times' the reports were sent
through and received at theiredestin-
ations far ahead of those transmitted
Michigan Man Heads
It is thought that the Ohio State
Lantern may be somewhat hampered
in the use of the system by the fact
that it is an afternoon paper. More-
over, lack of radio facilities at Chi-
cago and Northwestern universities
make it necessary for "9ZN" to com-
municate with the Daily Maroon and
the 'Northwestern by telephone. Oth-
erwise, however, it is believed by those
in charge that little difficulty will be
ezxperienced in handling the news by
air, once the system gets fully devel-
Prof. Joseph H. Cainnon, of the elec-
trical engineering department, is in
charge of the Michigan radio station,
while L. Armstrong Kern, '22, is gen-
eral chairman of the system of inter-
collegiate radio news service.
HISTORY OF NAVAL
The History of the Michigan Naval
Militia, which was compiled shortly
before the close of school last spring,
and printed during the later 'part
of June, found considerable favor
among those who were connected with
the unit, acording to the business
representatives of the book.
During the early summer a number
of the histories were disposed of to
former members of the unit, which
was largely recruited here at the
University, and to others who were
interested in the work that the or-
ganization carried on.-
The book was compiled under the
direction of Prof. J. R. Hayden, of
the political science department, who
was connected with the organization.
It conssits of a detailed description
of the founding, training and service
of the unit, andis illustrated with
