Des Moines, Ia. April, 22.--Permission of the United States government to allow the use of radio instruments with a wave length of 360 meters in broadcasting the results of the Drake relay race here April 28 and 29 has been secured.
For the first time in the history of athletics results of the Drake games will be flashed through the air by wireless the minute each event is concluded. The Kiwanis club of this city, co÷perating with the Thomas Electric company, will broadcast the results.
Colleges and universities in nearly twenty states have announced the receiving sets are being installed by them in order to receive the results of the meet.
The 360 meter wave length will be permitted between the hours of 2 and 5 o'clock on the two days of the meet. The temporary call letters of the Des Moines station will be WBAC. Thousands of people in all parts of the United States who will be unable to attend the meet will be informed of the positions in which their teams finish in each event.
Although the final tabulation of the entries has not been completed, the meet will far surpass any track event ever held in this section, K. L. "Tug" Wilson, Drake director, believes.
