A NEW PROBLEM
JO WORRY ABOUT
The olil question of vho owns thta
air above had to b: settled iiianyl
years ago and it was decided that the I
rights of a laud owner begin at a
| point in the center of the earth and
runs from such p*int u.ilil it reaches
the surface of the earth. It inexact
ly the size" of the holdings whether
said holding be one acre or one thous-
and acres. The extending lines lVoin
I the point widen all the tune, just as
the spokes in a wheel, the furtlie.
they go the further apart they be
ciKne. Modern science has to a cer
tain degree interfered with that eon
I elusion as men and nations are now
using the air over oui heads for the
purpose of Hying.
Now comes the old question ugain
of who owns that substance which
tills all spuce, certainly all space neat
the earths surface, called electricity
It is possible for a man to speak in
the center of the I nited States and
I he heard by the 110,0(10,000 people of
the entire country at the same iirstnnt
Kadio systems are being installed all
over the country and a family in Wil
Haiiistoii can hear the great o( 'ia
singer in New York any night 1 while
their neighbor on the corner can heai
a preacher in his pulpit in Brooklyn
Lat the same instant The instrument
which leceivcs cost about $126.00. The
two sending instruments from New
York and Brooklvn are alike and both
of yic Williamston receiving instill
mcnts are alike, and all use the same
i conductor. I nlcss they key to a dif
ferent wave they have the same re
suits that occur when evejy subsi lih
er talks at the same time on a paity
line or when a company of women all
talk in a 100111 at the same time til
they would do so), there would hi
110 ivltalii sound, everything would be
uncertain. 'This gives t-i: eto the ques
tion who and how must the elect lic
waves lie governed. This question
may yet grow to be a one, I'm
some way must I*; devised to keep nil
boys and silly girls fiom nionopoliD
I nig all known space. 'They hang oti
telephone lines to the detriment ol
business and the disgust of those vv m
would use telephones for legitimat!
We are wondering how some pen
pie can he kept from talking in, win I
ling or otherwise interrupting th»■ 'rn
dio service when it comes to be mon
commonly used. Then the ownelshq
ol that substance which we use ie
