    Committee Calls for
Broadcast Outlines
For KOA C Hookup
Still campaigning for program ideas for next year’s KOAC broad
casting from the campus, the recently appointed radio sub-committee
on program building yesterday sent out another call to students and
faculty members for suggestions.
With the start of daily broadcasting from the campus set ten
tatively for not later than next October 1, the committee is making
a last spurt to gather all possible suggestions before it goes about
making up next year’s program, according to Paul Kiepe, chairman.
The committee has held a number of meetings to discuss pro
grams, ana aitnougn a numoer oi
faculty programs for next year
have been worked out there is still
need for student programs, Kiepe
said. A number of faculty mem
bers are planning to write pro
grams during the summer, accord
ing to Kiepe.
Serial Broadcasts Sought
The type of suggestions sought
by the committee as outlined by
Kiepe are serial broadcasts rather
than individual ones, programs on
a single subject which may be
broken down easily into 15 or 30
minute programs for presentation
once each week over a period of
two or three months. The fore
going are the specifications sent
out by Luke L. Roberts, manager
of KOAC.
Programs should be something
within possibility of production
here, was Kiepe’s request. The
suggestions should be written up
in “a brief statement of whaj
they think a program series
should contain” and brought either
to George Root, educational activi
ties manager, or to Paul Kiepe of
the speech division.
Large Response Hoped
Kiepe expressed the hope that
many students and faculty mem
bers would respond to the oppor
tunity to write radio program
ideas. “The more people we can
get interested in this type of
thing the more educational value
can be derived from educational
activities,” was his expreession of
the feeling of the committee. “We
want it to interest the many,” he
Kiepe stressed the fact that
writing talent is what is needed
rather than microphone talent.
Microphone talent, he said, offers
no problem to the committee.
The committee will meet again
Tuesday at 4 o’clock in the speech
division to report its findings to
Luke Roberts, KOAC manager.
The committee can only make rec
ommendations, with Roberts hav
ing the final say as to what can
be used.

The Biblical story of “St. Paul”

The choral group, under direc

tation of the oratorio by Felix
How the wicked Saul, in his per

the name of Saint Paul, was told in

“Saint Paul” opened with the
joyful note in the chorus “Lord,
Thou Alone Art God,” contrasted
by the following choral.
One of the most famous chor

dicative of the characteristic of the
martyr, when Saint Stephen, who
had been stoned, cried out for the

Among other famous choruses
were “Happy and Blest Are They,”
the beautiful, choral-like “See
What Love Hath the Father,” and
“How Lovely Are the Messengers,”
Horace Greeley Letter in Nash
Library Discusses Patronage
President Roosevelt’s recent proposal to reform the civil service
and' eliminate patronage probably would have found a strong sup
porter in George Wolbridge, back in 1861. Or so one might believe
from a recent “find” in the Nash collection in the University library.
Horace Greeley, famed American journalist, wrote a letter of
introduction for Wolbridge to Gideon Welles, then secretary of the
navy under President Lincoln. Wolbridge is unidentified at present.
The letter was found in the pages of “Broughton’s Epistolae,”
