E. 400 bull-pen the other day, when the discussion turned by chance to "perpetual mo- tion." Almost anybody can scoff at an idea for perpetual motion, or some other outlandish devices for that mat- ter, but it often takes real engineer- ing skill to show conclusively to the over-enthusiastic inventor just where his ideas are a violation of the laws of science. If you don't believe it, try it some time! Group two in E. E. 410 finds that there are about seventeen ways to hook up a polyphase wattmeter, six- teen of which are wrong. Any man in this group will tell you that this par- ticular breed of wattmeter is an in- vention of the devil. A lot of us find it hard to study un- less there is perfect quiet. That's fine, and anyone who can't study un- der these conditions ought to bust out....

The equipment, consisting of a phono- graph turn-table and pick-up, a two- stage power amplifier and a Magna- vox dynamic speaker, was constructed by A. L. Billingsley for a down-town department store for use in demon- strating records. The volume given by the amplifier proved to be sufficient to allow good audibility at a distance of approxi- mately a quarter of a mile. The strains of "St. Louis Blues" were re- ported to have been heard clearly in Kast Hall and at Autry Jlouse. When the speaker was placed on the back table of the E.
