Last Monday evening at the home

er ot that In the California town
They heard the Callfornlan give
directions to those who wero ro-
colvlsg the messages in Paso Robles
to call up "Mr. Kennedy and tell
him tho concert Is to start, for he
wrote me that he wanted to hear
one of the entertainments." The
Ontario group also heard the Cali
fornia man tell Mr. L. L. Martin In
Nampa that he appreciated bis let
ter telling of being a bio to hear the
concert though SO feet away from
the Instrument, and they also heard
his message to a frtead In Doaver

So far aa ability to distinguish each
