Santa Claus gave' his first radio ad- dress of the season, from WOC. In introducing htm, McArthur expressed the hope that the Federal commis- sion will favor WOC, at least to the degree where Santa Claus may be heard satisfactorily by listeners of the station. Trade and Smith broth- ers, showed their range of talent Wed- nesday evening, with a guitar duet, "I Must Have That Man." The Millikin Hour was one of the best programs of the evening, and the Millikin entertainers had some real competition, with the Trouba- dours, the Palmolive players and oth- chain organization going at their best. We liked particularly the piano duet played by Frederic Butterfield and James Bergen, the playing of the string too, Mrs. Hadley's "Ave Ma- ria." Mr. Hadley's "The and Miner Walden Gallup's piano solo of "Moment Musical." Rupel Jones served as announcer, and he was an important help to the program. WLS went for a'half hour without announcement of call, during the pro- gram sponsored by the Swift com- pany. Mrs. W. K. Bdb'yT 2111 East Whit- mer, reported reception of two for- eign stations Wednesday evening. They came in near KOA, and almost on adjoining waves. In her opinion, one of the stations was in Mexico. The other, she believes, was HHK, Port Au Prince. Porto Rico. At any rate, this last station came in at ex- actly the point on the dials where HHK should be heard. This is real DX. We'll have to in- vestigate, and we'd appreciate any help fellow DXers can give. Federal Radio Commissioner Cald- well, speaking in Washington Wednes- day night before the Washington So- ciety of Engineers, declared the re- cent broadcasting realloration, which faithfully carried out the redistribu- tion of wavelengths and other radio facilities according to population, as ordered by the 1928 Radio will be cheerfully accepted. This infor- mation is furnished The Review by The Associated Press. Three unusual lists of stations have been received for Wednesday night's reception. All three of them include KSL, Salt Lake City, and WPG At- lantic City. DXer C. R. Bennett, Includes: WASH, Grand Rapids; WRVA, Richmond; KNX, Hollywood; WABC, New York City, and a number of oth- ers, less prominent. All were received with loudspeaker volume in early eve- ning. DXer Kyle brought in, addition to :he two included m all three lists, and the usual number of non-important itations, WBT, Charlotte; WIBW, To- peka, and KFUL, Galveston. DXer Whitsitt, between 10 and 11 o'clock, caught WCAU, Philadelphia; KEX, Portland; WIL, St Louis; KFI, Los Angeles and KLZ, Denver. The fact that stations were so stingy with announcements prevented him from adding other "catches" to his string. The DX season is here. On your mark! Get set! Go! Germany Will TakeThe Air Erects Powerful Short Wave Station for World Reception. is about to broadcast all important happenings to the world. After February, 1929, people in the United States will be able to hear President Von Hmden- burg speak, or a Zeppelin arrive, or the state opera performed, by merely listening in on their radios. The German ministry of posts and telegraphs, which has a monopoly on German broadcasting, has let the contract for a powerful short-wave sending station to be erected at Koenigswusterhausen, alongside the long-wave station now used lor broad- casting within Germany. The wave- length will lie somewhere between twenty and thirty meters. EARLY EVENING HERE. The government plans to broadcast all important happenings, and espe- cially to offer a daily program exem- plifying the various branches of Ger- man culture between the houis of 2 and 4 in the morning (7 to 9 p. m. Decatur in the hope that the millions of Americans, both north and south, of German descent may at an hour convenient to them experi- ence the thrill of hearing offerings in the language of their forebears. YOUNG FISH IN EXCELLENT SHAPE Washington, Nov. young fish situation is better than it was. Henry O'Malley, fish commissioner for the commerce department ex- plained this today in his annual re- port by saying that the government had made progress this year in hatching fish fro meggs and in main- taining them in nurseries until they get to be 3 or 4 inches long. Equipped with this extra length be- fore being put in streams, lakes or ocean areas, it is the belief of the fisheries workers that the young trout, salmon or whatever species they are, will survive to dinner table size in far greater numbers than be- fore.

Rochester, New York WMBI CHARTERED TO TEACH BIBLE Springfield, 111., Nov. of State Louis L. Emmerson has is- sued articles of incorporation to the Moody Bible Institute station WMBI of Chicago. The purpose of the sta- tion is to preach and teach the gospel of the Bible over the air. Listening In Uncle Bob, of KYW, and Peter Mc- Arthur. of WOC, had quite an argu- ment Wednesday evening. Of course, they did not speak to each other, but they argued, just the same. The real difficulty was that Uncle Bob wanted more than his share of dial. He wanted KYW's wave, and a part of WOC's wave in addition. Mr. McArthur wanted WOC's wave, and as much of KYW's wave as he could get. As a result, listeners heard both voices at the same time. It was ex- tremely difficult to separate them. KYW, by the way, came In with its old-time power. Presumably, it has been given an increase, although no UR-i?

Reclamation Washington, Nov. an effort to stop the creation of new farm land by reclamation processes, a resolution urging the transfer of the bureau of reclamation from the department of the interior to the de- partment of agriculture was intro- duced Wednesday before the Nation- al Grange by Albert S. Goss, of Washington. This is the second resolution on this subject brought before the Grange since it has been in con- vention here, and national officers expressed a belief that the policy will be adopted by the delegatee when it comes up for a vote later in the week. Grange leaders said they believed that the department of agriculture favors the reduction of new lands by reclamation, while they held that the federal reclamation service continues to bring forth new reclamation pro- jects. Strong opposition has been voiced in the Grange sessions against the development of the Columbia riv- er, Washington, irrigation project.
