Long Radio



Columbus, O., May 10-First reports
on the Ohio-Michigan dual track meet
to reach this city today were the
event-by-event bulletinsfbroadcast
throughout the afternoon from station
WCBC, Ann Arbor.
Evanston, Ill., May 10--Northwest-
ern students here who were unable
to go to the Michigan-Northwestern
baseball gagne played in this city this
afternoon had the unusual experience
of hearing the report of the game
broadcast to them from more than 250
miles away when The Michigan Daily
sent out bulletins from Ann Arbor,
Broadcasting for more than three
and a half hours yesterday afternoon,
station WOBOC radioed a program o
athletic results engineered by The
Michigan Daily which is thought to
have broken all previous college rec-
ords for continuous transmission.
Early reports indicate that station
WCBC may also have set a new dis-
tance mark for a university radio, it
was believed last night.
Beginning at 2:30 o'clock yesterday
afternoon, The Daily furnished to
beardrs in this city and all over the
continent an almost unbroken stream
of reports on the Michigan-Ohio State
track meet going on at the 'time on
Ferry iFeld, on the Micigan-North-
western baseball game at Evanston,
Ill., and on the annual Spring games
between the sophomore and freshman
The results were "on the air" in
every case-within a -few seconds after
happening. A direct wire to Evans-
ton -brought news of the baseball
match while a similar connection with
Ferry Field carried instantaneous re-
ports of each' move in the dual track
Having swung into action not long
after midday, station WCBC, under the
direction of E. E. Dreese of the elec-
trical enginering department, did not
shut down its motors until after 6
o'clock. At a late hour last night re-
ports dpntinued to pour in from ra-
dioists 'n every part of the country
who had heard the big program sent
out by The Daily.
Alter UniverityI
Radio Quarters
Extensive changes have been effect-
ed in the radio division of the elec-
trical engineering department quart-
ers in the Engineering building.
Uind~er the new arrangenwent the
radio department will have rooms 193,
105,, 109 and 111 on the main floor of
the building, giving the division a
substantial gain over the size of their
original quarters.
Room 109 has been made the office
headquarters and will probably be
used for broadcasting purposes in
place of room 104. Wiring connec-
tions for this use have already been
established between the room and the
transmitting apparatus in rooms 103
and 105. Room 111 is being used at
present as a general laboratory. The
equipment for using the loud speak-
ing device on the top building is now
located here as well as a. radio re-
ceiving set. Room 109 was originally
the office of the Michigan Technic

campus engineering journal.
The small room previously used as
a local studio has been merged with
another and the new space will be
occupied by the hydraulic engineers,
it is believed. This work on room 104
is just being finished.
The changes have necessitated the
temporary dismantlement of portions
of the apparatus of station WCBC, al-
though reassembly in the new space
is expected within a short time.

What The Wild Waves Are Saying

One of the most recent to realize
of the power of the radioed word is
Billy Sunday. While conducting a
revival in Memphis, the Reverend W.
A. Sunday delivered one of his peppy
orations, minus the gesturing, from
station WMC of that city.
"Radio is really of more benefit to
the farmer and others in the rural
districts than to the man or womanf
who lives in the city," says Prof. H.
H. Musselman, head of the engineer-
ing department of Michigan Agricul-"
tural college at East Lansing. Pro-
fessor Mussolman attributes this to
the fact that farmers cannot with such
ease get out to lectures, concerts and
similar forins of instruction and en-
tertainment as can be brought to his
door through the radio.

The settlement of the patent in-
fringment suit between station WHN,
New York, and the American Tele-
phone and Telegraph company, has
swamped the latter company with ap-
plications for new stations. There are
said to be at least six new broad-
casters in prospect in the city of
New York alone.
"Community antennae" are a thing
to be expected in the near future. Ex-

One of the most interesting student
recitals that has occurred in New York
in the past month was that of Thomas
E. Dewey, '23, for four years artist
pupil of William Wheeler of the School
of Music, and now studying under
Percy Rector Stephens, a prominent
basso of New York, who numbers
among his pupils Reinald Werrenrath
and Paul Althouse, both of the Met-
ropolitan Opera Company. The re-
cital, as reviewed in a recent edition
of the Musical Courier, was interesting
and promised great things for the
young basso.
His first public appearance in New
York, Dewey presented a program of
German, French, Italian, and English
numbers. Beginning with Beethoven's
magnificent In Questa Tomba Obscura,
he next sang Heydn's She Never Told
Her Love, and Handel's Si tra i cappi.'
Four Schubert songs followed, An
die Musik, Der Doppelganger, Heid-
enroslein, and the famous Erlkonnig.
His big aria, the Vision Fugutive from
Massanet's Herodiade was greeted with
great applause. Dewey sang this
famous aria in his last appearance in
Ann Arbor.
The program was closed by two
short English groups, three Rachmin-
off songs, and "The Song of the Tink-
er," which was written for the singer
by Max Ewing, '23, while both were
attending school here.
