CHICAGO. Jan. 3. (AP) -
Basing his estimates on communi
cations by letter and telegrapn,
K. A. Hathaway, technician at
WMAX and W9XAP. said today
that 2000 persons heard and saw
what was believed to have been
the nremler synchronized sight
sound broadcast of a dramatic
production tent outlast nlfbt over
W8XAP. , !
The olav. "The Maker of
Dreams," was broadcast on a
short wave length. ' 2160 kilo
cycles. Hathaway said It would
have been possible to have picsea
un the nros-ram a thousand miles
away, provided thevrecelving set
was of the same maauiaciure as
the broadcasting set. j
600 Owners of Sets t
In Chlcaxo at Present
The production was sent out
over a Western Television corpor
ation set and according to Hatha
way, it is not believed with few
exceptions, any of the company's
sets have been placed outside Chi
cago territory. There are 500 re
ceiving sets inland around Chi
cago, and from their owners,
Hathaway said, it was learned that
reception had been good.'
The technician said that at the
same time last . night that "Tne
Maker of Dreams" was being sent
out here, another television sta
tion, presumably in the east was
broadcasting In the same channel,
he explained that the peculiarity
of television at Its present aevei
onment that reouires a receiving
set of the same manufacture as the
broadcasting set kept the images
from the other broadcast from

1 ax, and Otherj bources
Of the estimated total exDenditures of the state of Ore
gon for the years 1931 and
106,000,000, the state legislature which convenes here next
week will be asked to appropriate only $8,616,936, accord
ing to the biennial budget completed here Friday by Sam
A Kozer, state budget commissioner. The legislative ap
propriations for the years 1929 and 1930 aggregated $8,
022,369.22.; . - ;? 1
The difference between the: amount of estimated total
expenditures for, the years 1931 and 1932 and the amount
to; be appropriated by the legislature is represented in re
ceipts of self sustaining departments, boards and commis
sions, fees, licenses, continuing appropriations and millage
taxes.
Under existing laws the esti
mated revenues during 1931 and
19 3 2 'from annual tax levies are
projected at 88,535.721.83. while
the estimated revenues other than
the annual tax levies applicable to
the payment of general govern
mental expenses are estimated at
87i704,298, making the total esti
mated revenues during the two
years' period approximately 818,-
240.017. This leaves an excess or
estimated obligations or require
ments of the years 1931 and 1932
over the estimated revenues for
that period of 34,082,048.27.
Deficit of 8 Millions on
December 81, 1031
The net deficit on December 31,
1930, including the deficiency ap
propriations of the state emer

and 1930, was estimated at $3,-
091475.10.
