L. R. Penn, who was graduated
from the university in June, has continued his research with I. G.
of the College of Engineering,
and just recently Watkins and Penn
have developed a miniature broadcast
ing station which has an output of
approximately "one gnat power
and covers a distance of one thousand feet. This apparatus is located
in the northern wing of Mechanical
hall, just beyond the electrical labora
tory in the present location of the
short wave transmitting set 9JL.
The set operates on a wavelength
of 317 meters and due. to its very
low power its signals cannot be heard
beyond the limits of the university
campus and this means there is absoto regu
lutely no interferenc-lar broadcast work of other stations
or to the people who are listening in.
It was designed to be used between
buildings and more especially between sections of the same building.
Music and speech are very clear over
this small set. With this principle
many combinations can be had and
its field is also unlimited. It is just
another step forward in the engineer

the general concensus of opinion on
the campus following the fifth annual
summer session luncheon which was
held at the Phoenix hotel last Friday
and attended by more than two hundred students and faculty members
of the summer session.
The luncheon was characterized by
a spirit of geniality, which expressed
iaself in the group singing as well
as in the various speeches. One of
the features of the singing was the
rivalry between the men and women
