MOUNT W I L S O N OBSERVA-
TORY, Calif., April 29.-(p)-The
radio amateur's dream of a set that
will pick up Mars fades into the in-
significance of a commonplace crys-
tal receiver compared to the set
being built here by Theodore Dun-
ham, Jr. He says he expects to tune
in the stars.
He does not hope to hear music,
so he has no loudspeaker attached.
But if the set works the results
will be music to the ears of as-
tronomers throughout the world.

the Carnegie Institution of Wash-
ington. His device has a photo-
electric cell for a detector tube and
is equipped with the most powerful

miles away, and the amplifying
tubes are expected to register a
delicate galvanometer by which the
temperature of the star under ob-

In the past the photographic

have been used. In Dr. Dunham's
