OW radio is as simple as snapping on the light. Just plug in one of the new RCA Radiolas-tune in with the tip of a single finger-and flood the room with music.
One great achievement of these new Radiolas is power reception. You have at your command, undistorted volume. With the newest Super-Heterodynes and an RCA power loudspeaker, you can get an orchestra loud and true enough to dance to in a crowded hall. You can
get reality of tone because you can exactly duplicate the volume as well as the quality of voice and music.
And for all of this, you need no batteries. In the Radiola 30, and in the RCA Loudspeaker Model 104, is a new device which does away with all batteries.
The man who today buys a six or eighttube Super-Heterodyne with RCA power speaker and A. C. operation is making a permanent investment for years of joyful listening in!

THE Society also had the honor of subscribing a substantial sum to the expedition of Admiral Peary, who discovered the North Pole. NOT long ago The Society granted $25,000, and in addition $75.000 was given by individual members to the Government when the congressional appropriation for the purpose was insufficient, and the finest of the giant sequoia trees of California. were thereby saved for the American people.
THE Society is conducting extensive explorations and excavations in northwestern New Mexico, which was one of the most densely populated areas in North America before Columbus came, region where prehistoric peoples lived in vast communal dwellings and whose customs, ceremonies, and name have been engulfed in an oblivion.
THE Society also is maintaining expeditions in the unknown area adjacent to the San Juan River in southeastern Utah, and in Yunnan, Kweichow, and Kansu, China-all regions virgin to scientific study.
