Pages of History: Contraption the work of local genius

From the pages of the Crescent City American, February of 1928.

C.V. Dunbar, local genius, has invented a contraption which he calls a “Wave Coaxer,” which he is demonstrating to local radio users. This device is a small box which presumably contains a system of wires, and when attached to a receiving set will cut out much of the interference and vibration as well as making it much easier to cut out stations on close wavelengths. 

The contrivance is a copper box about 4 inches long by 2 inches square and is truly a wonderful little instrument for the purpose for which it is designed. 

Clean it up

The City Council ordered a cleanup awhile back, but as yet we fail to see any results. It might be a good idea if the city set the example and cleaned up the mess behind City Hall.

News in brief

• Geo. C. Sabin, manager of the Oregon Caves, and C.G. Harvey, secretary of the Grants Pass Chamber of Commerce, were in this city Saturday and Sunday attending to business matters and also attended the banquet given the Redwood Highway caravan at the Alpine Cafe on Sunday night.

Mr. Sabin stated that the Oregon Caves would have its official opening this year May 13.

• There are a lot of pretty days and lots of good time going to waste that could be utilized in cleaning up the old cemetery on the beach. The tourists have already started coming in, and it will be a shame to let the old historic burying grounds go by another year without being cleaned up. 

• Bill Glover, mayor of Gloverville, was meeting friends and attending to business matters in this city Monday.
