A Jimmy Carter will give his democratic running mate sen. Walter f. Mondale the Freedom to speak his mind and won t insist on absolute conformity on issues a Carter spokesman said saturday. The democratic presidential nominee a has always Felt at ease with people close to him taking Posi Lions a different from his own said press aide Jody Powell. A the does t feel any psychological need to make a grown Man with a Long political record conform to his Powell said at a news briefing following a meeting of the Carter and Mondale staffs. A the idea is that we Don t intend to Force agreement Down the line on every Issue Quot he refused to say what will happen when the positions of the two candidates clash. Powell said that was for Carter and Mondale to disclose a it s not for the hired hands to do Quot Mondale. At this Seaside resort to discuss Campaign strategy with the Carter staff was to tour a Community health Center and make a fur answers to questions or help with a problem Call or write action line in care of the Enterprise. Every request is considered but please understand that the volume makes it impossible to answer or even acknowledge every one nepotism in High Point q. I have been told that there were three members of one family that worked Tor the City of High Point All in the same department. Is this possible thank you. Anon woman. A there is no written Rule that says they can t. But it is discouraged it one is in a supervisory Job Why the radio works q will you please explain am and pm on radio in detail thank you. Anon woman. A we combined information from an encyclopedia article on radio with More provided by mfrs chief Engineer Roby Fritts a and Hope we Haven t garbled the facts in transmission the word radio derives from a radiate out in radio communication. Energy travels from the transmitter to the receiver in radio Waves in the studio the sound Waves from voices records tapes Are converted to electrical Energy which is fed into a master amplifier transistors or vacuum tubes amplify and mix the signal with other signals if desired and these Are fed at the proper level to the transmitter this electrical Energy is referred to As audio the transmitter generates a High frequency alternating signal known As the Carrier or radio frequency Energy tile audio Energy is mixed with the radio frequency Energy in the transmitter and these form a modulated wave which radiates through the air to the receiving Antenna the electrical Energy generated in the Antenna is fed through the receiver tubes or transistors and is changed Back to sound Waves for your listening pleasure. The difference Between am and pm is the mixture of the modulation audio and radio frequency signals. In am amplitude modulation broadcasting the audio causes the radio frequency Energy to increase and decrease in Power in proportion to its own strength. In pm frequency modulation the audio causes the frequency of the radio frequency Energy to change in proportion to its strength frequency refers to the number of vibrations a sound or radio wave completes in a second it used to be measured in cycles but now the term used is Hertz named after Herr Heinrich Hertz abbreviated he Kilohertz Means 1000 Hertz or cycles per second Megahertz Means 1,000,000 Hertz per second. The frequency of an am transmitter May be any one of the 107 carriers starting at 540 Khz and ending at 1600 Khz each equally spaced to Khz apart an am wave follows the curve of the Earth and covers a great distance but most Static and Man made interference Are also am and disturb the reception. Am stations build their High Power transmitters in sparsely settled areas so their Strong signals done to drown out nearby stations the frequency of an pm transmitter May be any one of the too channels starting at 88 i Mhz and ending at 107.9 Mhz equally spaced 200 Mhz apart an pm wave is relatively noise free but can be received Only As far As the horizon these stations Are usually located in the Middle of a City to reach the most people in its limited Range sen. Walter Mondale speech at a shrimp supper saturday night in nearby Beaufort he then leaves for Carter s Home town of Plains a. For talks with the presidential nominee the morning staff meeting was devoted to a a preliminary overview of the records and positions the two candidates have taken and what their inclinations Powell said it showed that Mondale sometimes has taken a More Liberal position than Carter on an Issue and sometimes he has been More conservative but there is a general compatibility Quot Between the two men. Powell said he chose not to name the differences again saying it was for Carter and Mondale to Tell the Public Bow they differed a i would think that there is an obligation to do he said. He admitted however that such disclosures would Likely come at news conferences a where questions Are raised a and not in Campaign speeches he said perhaps More details would be available after Mondale and Carter meet in Plains this week Mondale s c Campaign chief. Dick Moe. Said that while the candidates opinions May not always coincide. Quot in a not aware of any fundamental differences on major he backed Powell a statement that the Carter staff had not tried to Force Mondale to modify or Back Down from any position he has taken Mondale said later saturday that he is not As Liberal As some perceive him to be for example. A i have never been for forced busing to achieve racial balance Quot in schools he told reporters after meetings with the staff of his running mate. He added that a Many thought i d been sort of hostile to a Strong defense. But my record shows that i have not been what i be been opposed to is waste Quot at an earlier briefing. A Carter spokesman said there were some differences in the two candidates positions on some major issues but the spokesman would not give details. When asked about the differences. Mondale avoided specifics referring Only to busing and military defense a if we disagree Well say so publicly and that s the Way Well run the Mondale said a if i disagree 1 11 talk to governor Carter Mondale is known As one of the senates strongest advocates of busing and was a Strong opponent of legislation to restrict the authority of the Federal courts to order busing Mondale said july 15. The Day after lie was named the party s vice presidential nominee that he does not advocate busing As the Best method to achieve racial balance a i just Don t want to repeal the 14th amendment Quot guaranteeing equal rights for All he said Mondale said that an administration sincerely trying to solve the problem of discrimination could a sharply reduce the need for busing Quot on defense spending. Mondale has voted for cuts in the defense budget he supported an unsuccessful Effort to bar appropriation of funds for the by bomber roof fall reportedly kills 500 by Nick Ludington associated press writer Beirut.

You really have to look at it yourself and then it s a matter of personal interpretation Quot said Miller. He said the features a May just be a function of Light Shadow and the character of the Rock itself Light playing on the irregular surface of a Rock. But we have no idea what it scientists have noted that other unusual formations have been spotted around the Lander they nicknamed a Long tubular looking Rock a the Midas Muffler Rock Quot another Rock. Which looked a bit like a Small car was dubbed Quot the Miller said speculation As to what might cause the apparent figures spotted saturday could include optical illusions or Lens refractions or reflections.

Miller said but he quickly added that was again Only speculation. While the a Bearance of the unusual shapes Drew attention scientists guiding the robot explorer scored one Success saturday in efforts to make it fully functional but still had two problems to work out a spokesman at the Jet propulsion Laboratory Here said scientists were elated when a Power problem which had affected transmission of pictures from the surface of Mars cleared up by itself Quot this is really great said Ken Senstad. A spokesman for the National aeronautics and space administration. But he added that scientists would be apprehensive As Long As troubles continue with the seismometer intended to detect potential Mars quakes and the scooping Arm which is to pick up Martian soil for biological tests in the quest for life. 20 years later Andrea Doria still hides treasure 1965 photo shows Andrea Doria As she sinks map wire photo by Daniel q.
