EUGENE. March 25 (Special)
"A youth spent in long and ex
pensive educational preparation, a
life spent in service and sacrifice
for others ,with little remunera

the average minister as pictured
before Presbyterian' ministers and
laymen who met in Portland re

Each Presbyterian church will
be campaigned separately, but all
will be, campaigned simultaneously
with each other and with churches
of 103 Presbyteries in 14 states
from Illinois to California, com
pleted campaigns-in state east of
Illinois already having pledged
more than $9,000,000 to the fund.
About 40,000 laymen will take
part in the coming campaigns.
"Fifty years before a soldier of
the revolution received a cent in
pay, much less in pension, we
formed a 'Fund for Pious pur

Commission Hopes to Make"
K Possible for All Stations
WASHINGTON, March 25.
(AP Radio congestion, under
regulation of the newly created f
federal commission, may he so
treated that most if not all of the
T33 broadcasting stations now
operating may continue hi exis
tence. Commissioners who have
studied the problem are hopeful
of the possibility, and are confi
dent that data will be brought out
attfce series of public hearings be
ginning in Washington Tuesday
to clear up the prospect.
Further, the commission has
tentatively held that it can not
under the law exercise any de
gree of censorship over radio sta
tions' programs.; b'ut the stations
themselves, with j one ' exception,
can censor to their heart's con
tent. The Jaw provides that if a
candidate for political office is
given broadcasting opportunity by
any station,, his opponents must
have the same opportunity.
As to the maintenance of all
operating stations. Commissioner
Bellows explained today that the
first subject the public hearings
will develop is the question of in
creasing the number of channels
now available for broadcasting.
There is a possibility that this
can be done, by alteration of
technical regulations, but even if
it cannot, he pointed out that the
largest number of radio stations
now operating desire to run for
merely a few hours in each week,
and reach only limited localities.
An adjustment of their sending
arrangements may be worked out,
the commission believes, to give
them all space and time.
