"I liardly see how I endured such
awful suffering, and If It hadn't been
far Tanlac I don't believe I would be
here today," said Mrs. Mollie Abbey,
uf Jennings Lodge, Ore.
"For nine years everything I ate
caused gas to form so that it almost
drove me distracted. I didn't dare eat
any fruit and for four years if I even
drank a glass of cold water I would
suffer dreadfully. No one who didn't
see me can imagine the awful condi-
tion I was in.
"But Tanlac changed all this and
now I'm simply feeling fine. My ap-
petite is splendid. I eat anything I
want, have actually gained thirty-nine
pounds and have so much strength

work. Tanlac is a wonderful medi-

ALL ABOUT VACUUM
TUBE AS AMPLIFIER
Connected Up to Furnish Rated
Filament Current and Main-
tain Plate Potential.
Figure XXI\ shows a three-elec-
trode vacuum tube connected with the
A" battery to furnish the rated fil-
ament current and a "B" battery to
maintain rated plate potential. In
the plate circuit is a current meter to
read the plate current. A "C" bat-
tery Is connected In the grid circuit
to maintain the grid at the positive
potential O A in order to have the
tube operate at the point A on the
characteristic curve. To T-T will be
connected the alternating difference
of potential having a maximum pos-
itive value equal to A-0 and a max-
imum negative value equal to A lt.
The resulting variation in plate j
current is shown in Fig. XXV. ln-
sertinc the tube functioning as an
amplifier, with an amplification fur- '
when HI Increases. 7.1 mu^t decrease.
This means that when a constant "R"
battery potential Is applied to the
plate circuit of a vacuum tube, eon-
j taining external resistance, yin in-
j crease in plate current causes a de-
crease in the potential existing be-
tween the plate and the filament.
| The "static" characteristic curve
I was drawn on the assumption that
j the difference in potential between
the plate and the filament remained
I constant, obviously then, when the ex-
ternal plate circuit has other than
zero impedance, the static character-
istic curve no longer holds true.
The characteristic curve of a tube
having other than zero impedance in
the external plate circuit is the "dy-
namic" characteristic. The greater
the variations in plate current, the
greater the variation in the voltage
existing between the plate and the
filament. If the value of It, the ex-
ternal plate Impedance, is increased,
the greater will be the variation In
the plate to filament voltage for the
same variation in plate current.
In Fig. XXVI (2) is represented the
dynamic characteristic of a tube with
a certain definite value of It in the
plate circuit. Curve (.'!) represents
the dynamic characteristic of the
same tube with a larger value of It
In the plate circuit. Finally the ex-
treme condition is reached, in which
it is made Infinitely high and the
dynamic characteristic becomes par-
allel to the grid voltage axis as in
(4). This shows that variations of
grid potential would produce no var-
iation of plate current, but maxi-
mum variations of plate variations of
plate potential. These would be am-
plified variations of grid potential
This last condition of having the
variations of plate potential amplified
variations of grid potential varia
lions is the ideal condition sought f"'
in vacuum tube amplifiers.

nating difference of potential at T-T.
was just K times what it actually Is.
All these considerations have been
based on the assumption that the
total Impedance (resistance to the
(low of an alternating current) of
the entire plate circuit existed inter-
nally in the tube between I he filament
and the plate, and that the external
electrical circuit from the plate to
the filament had zero impedance, (if
*se, this condition never exists In
practice. The external plate eir-
ult always has impedance in It in
the form of telephone receivers, re-
istance choke coils, or transformer
primaries, depending upon the means
that Is employed to couple the stir-
cessive tubes together.
It is only where the external plale
circuit of a vacuum tube has zero
Impedance that the plate voltage is
pial to that of the "11" battery. As
soon as an impedance is Introduced
into the external plate circuit, part
of the total potential of the "B" ex-
ists as a drop across the external im-
pedance, so that only a portion of the
total "B" battery is available at the
l-'ig. XXVI represents the char-
acteristic curve of the tube as we
have been discussing it. with no Im-
pedance in the external plate circuit.
Phis curve is called the "static" char-
acteristic curve, to differentiate from
the others. Suppose that we intro-
duce into the external plate circuit
an Impedance in the form of a resist-
ance as shown b\ It in I'ig. XX\ !l
When the current flows around
Hie plate circuit flows through
resistance It there is a drop In po-
tential across it between the points
N and V that will be proportional to
the current flowing. If the value of
It anil the plate potential are high
enough this potential variation be-
tween X and Y will be exacth pro-
portional to and K times that applied
to the grid of the tube at T-T.

through the plate circuit, there will
he a voltage drop across the resistance
It equal in value to it times I. where
I Is the plate current in amperes. If
the Internal impedance of the tube be
'denoted by Z, :hen the drop in voltage
from the plate lo the filament inside
of the tube is ZI. The sum of these
two voltage drops, ZI plus III. is al-
ways equal to the applied voltage of
the "1!" or plate circuit battery. The
voltage of the "B" battery is constant.
As the plate current Increases, the
value of 111 Increases because li. the
•\t. rn.il plate resistance, does not
iiai ge in value. So if the sum of ZI
lus 111 is always equal to a constant

V. If greater amplification is de-
sired the output from X and V is run

The "Toteiiiites," a society of
radio fans at Seattle, decided
that receiving code signals dur-
ing broadcast programs Is in
evitable. and instead of regis-
tering complaints, opened a free
school to its members for In-
struction in the code.
People living in Isolated sec-
tions are getting great satisfae
tion from radio, as it is a cure
for loneliness. They not only
feel that they have friends with-
in "speaking distance" but that
entertainers of the highest grade
are next door neighbors.
Major tieneral Squire, chief
signal oIlicer. F. S. A., told the
graduates of the Camp Vail sig-
nal school there had been great-,
er development* in radio in the
past decade than in any other
science. Also that in future wars
barrages and bombardments
would be laid down by radio.
The British have developed a
two-purpose vacuum tube for
use in conjunction with radio.
The new tube, or valve, as It is
called in Hngland, is the Mill-
iard Ora. The plate voltage is
given as 3(i, ii.nl tlif filament
voltage at 3.6 to 4.. The base
of (lie tube is of the four-
prong type. It Is said to com-
bine efficiently the qualities of
the rectifier and amplifier,
whlfdt make It possible to use
one tube fur a'l purposes.
