James W. Martin hosted a sleighing party in Richland. A large bob sled was used and a hay rack was attached behind which held Mr. Martin's eight tube Kolster radio receiving set. The boys rigged up their own aerial on one of the cross pieces and grounded their wire on the runner of the sled. They had wonderful reception and music could be heard for blocks.
