for the making of rather extensive
alterations in the equipment and in-
stallation of old experimental station
Franklin D. Johnston, '22E, has been
chosen to take charge of the re-ar-
rangeemnt and to act thereafter as
chief operator.
It is understood to be the intention
of those in charge, however, to move
the radio room itself to another part
of the engineering building. The
present location is in room 103. but
it is possible that the new installa-
tion nay be placed in the sub-base-
ment at the extreme north end of the
New Equipment Plauned
It is also planned to install as much
new equipment as possible, this per-
haps to include a continuous wave
transmitter, althpugh the old spark
sending set will still be used for gen-
eral work.
An application has gone in to
Washington asking for a renewal . ot,

tion has so long been identified. This
license expired sometime last-spring,

Prof. Cannon Approves
Prof. Joseph H. Cannon, of the
electrical engineering department, has
expressed his enthusiasm in regard
to the prospective news service now
being,developed, and has stated em-
phatically that any reasonable de-
mands made for the betterment of lo-
cal conditions would be supported by
his department. He, together with
Prof. John C. Parker and Prof. Ward
F. Davidson, both of the -electrical
enginering department, has indicated
that the radio station would be opened
freely to the handling of such proj-
ects as the present, in which efforts
would be made to, use the equipment
for a real purpose.
Additional' tests for the establish-
mint of a working system to be con-
ducted earlier in the evenings than
heretofore, were conducted Saturday
night and~last night between the va-
rious Big Ten universities, and it is
hoped that the service may be put
under 'way for dependable use at the
time of the more important football
games of the fall.
Wisconsin Gets Appointment
In connection with the changes
made in the scheme of communica-
tions, bulletins recently sent out by
the local office of the Western Con-
ference--Radio News service announc-
ed at least the temporary appoint-
ment of the University of Wisconsin
station, "9XM", to te position of cen-
tral station to su d "9ZN", of Chi-
cago. The change was made because
of the fact that local regulations pre-
vent the operation of "9ZN" before
10:30 o'clock, central tifme. That sta-
tion, however, will continue to handle
the service for the benefit k of the
