BROADCASTING STATIONS WAVELENGTHS ---0--o CONTROL BY STARS PLUS A TUNING FORK The stars -in the heavens have been harnessed to. prevent over-lap ping among broadcasting stations.. By their aid, complaints of interfer ence between any of the 121 sta tions in Australia have been practi cally eliminated. *To test whether a station is on its wavelength, the scientific staff, at the Amalgamated VWireless (Austra lasia) Limited Research Laboratory, Ashfield, N.S.W., employs a tuning fork of high grade Elinvar steel. This fork, when vibrating, has a nat: ural frequency of 1000 cycles per sec ond and when its frequency is com pared with the frequency of a broadcast station or control equip ment in course of manufacture, the slightest variation from an allotted frequency or wavelength is detected. The paramount consideration re garding the tuning fork, therefore, is either that it must be correct, or if it is not absolutely correct, that its degree of error should be known to a very precise ...

THE EDUCATION REFORM . ASSOCIATION (To the Editor.) Sir,-In your issue of July 14 under the above heading appears a letter containing a small, though significant, error which I wish to take lthe liberty of, correcting. The E.R.A. was formed largely owing to the efforts of the Federation of Mothers'. Clubs, and the foundation organisations consist _ of 32 friendly societies, Iparents' associations, teach-1 ers' associations, ex-pupils' - associa tions, etc. It wivll be seen that, far from 'being a teachers' organisation, it is representative of many progres sive societies of Victoria. Its objects are to raise the standard of our education to that existing in most other forward countries in such directions as health, curriculum, build ings, equipment, school leaving age, etc.-Yours etc., Frankston.

B GRADE. ,FRANKSTON ~I. HASTINGS-TYABB With both A and B grades sc;ed uled to play . home matches, the B grade inatch against Hastings-Tyabb was played at the Craibourne road reserve. Frankston, commenced with only 17 players, a decided disadvantage for a team trying to win a place in the four. Frankstonl chose to kick with the strong wind that was favoring the Oranbourne road end. Hastings-Ty abb opened in a brisk manner, and were first 'to score. Players of both sides found the new rule difficult to contend with in the windy conditions, with Frankston most often penalised. The second quarter still found the visitors forcing the pace, and at this stage they looked the ultimate win Iners. Frankston's defence was stand ing up to the strain, and, preventing the opposition from building up an overwhelming lead. At the half-time interval Hastings-Tyabb had estab lished a handy lead of eight points. 'At tihe commencement of the sec ond half J. Peters stripped, and com p'leted a full 18. ...
