Hear Harding Here
Scores of "radio fans" in Harrisburg yesterday heard the addresses of President Harding and Chief Justice Taft at the Lincoln Memorial dedication yesterday.
Shortly before 2 o'clock, the naval broadcasting station at Anacostia, Md., at 412 meters, turned to carry 500 miles, was picked up by the local receiving stations. Those who tuned their receivers to 2650 meter wave length were able to get the proceedings relayed by the larger station at Arlington, which broadcasted 1000 miles.
Local radio enthusiasts said they could catch every word of the speeches and the applause which greeted the speakers. The program was not completed until after 4 o'clock.
