It can be utilised onboth a.c. and d.c. circuits, and will operate inside set-tings of from 3 to 12 lb. The device is created by the General Electric business,in sizes for rated pressures of 60, one hundred, 160, 300 and500 lb. Governors for higher pressures can also besupplied if desired. Adjustments of the cutting-in andcutting-out pressures are made by moving the pointersshown at the prime of the graduated scale.

May 18, 1918 Electric Railway Journal * 975 Trolley Ear Length Is a Factor inWire-Put on Tests Recently Created Show That the Life of theWire Increases Proportionately With theLength of the Ear By G. H. Bolus Designing Engineer, Ohio Brass Organization, Mansfield, Ohio Companies of overhead line material listtrolley ears in all lengths from 7 in. to 15 in.Sales records show that the railway companies of theUnited States and Canada are purchasing a lot more 15-in.ears than those of any other length. The averagerailway man doubtless has standardized on the lengthof ear which he has discovered from knowledge works wellon his line, but it is doubtful whether or not he directly asso-ciates the length of the trolley ear with the put on onthe trolley wire. Some railway properties make a practice of startingtheir installation with a 9-in. ear, operating it untilworn out and replacing with a 12-in. ear to cover upthe worn spots in the wire. The next renewal wouldbe with a 15-in. ear and later renewals would eitherbe m

is not possible to recordupon a plate. But radiographs which are taken instantaneously are ofgreat value as confirmatory proof of changes in the organs, and shouldalways be taken to full the examination. The importance of havinga thoroughly trustworthy fluorescentscreen have to be borne in mind.It is also essential that the screenbe smooth on the surface, andkept scrupulously clean. Thelead glass protection ought to alsobe kept well polished, for even atrace of dirt or pencil mark on itssurface may lead to difficulty, theimportance of this point beingreadily understood where finedetail is getting dealt with. It is also of importance tohave the patient completely nonetheless,especially when radiography isemployed, because the slightestmovement throughout the exposuremay ruin the worth of a plate. The screening stand need to be connectedto earth by a wire, in order to steer clear of providing the patient a shock fromthe electrical discharges which are given off from the tube and metal fittingswhen the former gets challenging.

Radiography In radiography of the lungs for diagnostic purposes it is required touse a soft tube in order to obtain the best final results. It is detail in lungs andnot in bone that we appear for. A soft tube of about 3-4 inch spark-gap willallow a massive quantity of current to pass by means of it, and will give extremely gooddetail in the soft parts. Time exposures of any length are of no great worth for diagnosis ifwe are to get plates which will to any extent reproduce what we have seenon the screen, the exposure need to be exceedingly quick in truth, the shortestobtainable is the very best. With a potent modern installation the exposure 284 RADIOGRAPHY could be cut down to T£o of a second.
