the modulator tube which varies the
amplitude of the ascillations of the
master ascillator. The modulator,
which uses three tubes of five watts:
each, is in itself a complete . radio
sending set. This power is stepped
up by means of four 50 watt amplify-
ing tubes, making the total capacity
of station WCBC 200 watts. The high
plate potential is obtained from a
General Electric synchronous motor-
driven generator set. Each of the!
five-watt tubes requires a plate po-
tential of 500 volts; each 50 watt
tube requires 1,000 volts.

Several political leaders have an-
nounced that they will bring the quali-
ties of their candidates as well as
their political platforms before the
country by means of the radio. Such
campaigning will be plainly labeledl
as advertising matter and undoubted-
ly treated by the listeners as such.
The other type of campaigning
might better be called propaganda. It
has already manifested itself. Under
the guise of education or public-inter-

One big move to harness radio for
the benefit of politics, many believe,
is the construction of a municipal
broadcasting station for the city of
New York. The significance of th-is

it will certainly serve as a precedent
to other large cities. What does it
Supposing the City Hall owned a
newspaper which had a circulation
equalled probably by no other news-
paper in the city. In the hands of
a group of clever politicians this paper
woul.d so influence public opinion and
consequently votes, that the job of
dislodging that particular administra-
tion would be tremendous.
A powerful radio station will serve
this particular purpose just as well
as the newspaper used in the example
above. With such a means of reach-
ing the public, the men in office will
always have an immeasureable ad-
vantage over the new aspirants..

There is one disadvantage in the
monopoly of broadcasting stations by
the newspapers. The latter, with not-
able exceptions, are showing them-

fair publicity to the doings of stations.
