THE X LADY &nbsp; WHERE WAS AIMEE? KIDNAPPING STORY (AUSTRALIAN CABLE SERVICE.) LOS ANGELES, Saturday.—The &nbsp; Macpherson perjury trial is proving a very long drawn affair. Dozens of witnesses have been examined, and scores more are coming. Kenneth Ormiston is still missing, but District Attorney Keyes promises that if unable to produce the radio- man himself he will exhibit his hand- writing at the hotel at San Luis Obispo, when, he registered "Mr. and Mrs. Frank Gibson," and as "Kenneth Gladstone" in Oakland. These also are being compared with the hand- writing of the telegram sent from &nbsp; &nbsp; Oakland to Mrs. Kennedy, the mother of Aimee Macpherson: "Aimee O.K. Don't worry." The testimony so far has been some- what contradictory. Several witnesses were certain that it was Aimee, even to her hair and ankles, who was Ormis- ton 's companion in Carmel cottage, while others assert that it was merely a woman like her, but not Aimee her self. &a...

ETHERIC WHIRLPOOLS POWERFUL WHIRLPOOLS AMERICAN EXPERIMENTS [Newspaper Article] — Sunday Mail — 10 October 1926
ETHER1C WHIRLPOOLS POWERFUL WHIRLPOOLS AMERICAN EXPERIMENTS Radio waves are often pictured by a stone hurled into a pond, causing rip ples in all directions says Orrin E- Dun lap, .iunr. writing in 'The Scientific American.' The larger the stone and the greater the force, the larger will be the waves and the farther they will travel. Here the analocv ends because the power of radio waves is Jiot de pendent upon their size. The amperes hi the aerial circuit and the pressure in volts between the aerial and the ground are what count in broadcasting. He goes on: This ethereal energy may be very strong, despite the fact that it is in visible. So powerful were the electro magnetic impulses broadcast from Mac Millan's ship in the arctic that the electric lishts on board would glow by radio power although disconnected from the current. One member of the crew told how he placed an incande scent lamp on the pillow in his bunk and when the transmitter was in ope ration the bulb would emit ligh...
