Another important handicap that
television engineers have not yet elim-
inated is the prohibitive cost of trans-
mitting broadcasts cross country by
wire, as radio networks do today. It
is quite possible to send a television
broadcast by using the new "coaxial
cable," which has been tried between
New York and Philadelphia, but the
cost of such a cable is high.
An alternate possibility would be
to relay broadcasts over a chain of
sending and reciving stations using a
directionally tuned 'beam, but the
cost would still be high. The limita-
tions thus imposed upon chain broad-
casting, coupled with the present high
price of television receivers and trans-
nitting equipment will limit the size
of the listening or "seeing" public.
Since sponsors are willing to spend
only in accordahce with the size of
the public contacted, the quality of
the programs will, in general not be
as high as those sent out by radio
chains today, Professor Holland be-

Union orientation chairman. Dean
Griffin will speak on "P'roblems in
Business Today," Treadwell said.
The purpose of these vocational
coffee hours, Treadwel stated, is to
permit students planning to enter va-
rious specific fields and professions
with the nature of these endeavors,
through contact with experts in the
University. The hours give particu-
lar attention to allowing a period for
discussion with the speaker follow-
ing his talk.
The last speaker in the series was
Dean James B. Edmonson of the
School of Education, who spoke on
"Education as a Career." Other
speake s in the series have been Dean
Samuel T. Dana of the forestry school,
Dean Albert C. Furstenburg of the
medical school and Prof. James K.

Following Dean Griffin's talk,
Treadwell said, coffee and hot choco-

North Carolina
TrTies Lowering
State Illiteracy
Disturbed at the comparatively
high illiteracy rate in their state,
several students at the University of
North Carolina recently decided to do
some construtive work in teaching
he uneducated people of the state to
read, write and perform other tasks
in which they are interested. The
work is particularly important in
view of the fact that there are ap-
proximately 3,000 automobile driv-
ers in the state who can neither read
nor write.
More than 30 university students
give more than two hours weekly to
go out singly and in groups to teach
the limited number that their work
can reach. Approximately 90 of these
educationally underprivileged re-
ceived instruction during the fall.
and the efforts to reach more are con-
The largest group to receive the
assistance of these volunteer teach-
ers is at a nearby prison camp. While
most of the men-there are taught only
the rudiments of reading and writ-
ing, four expressed a desire to learn
to play the guitar, and one, a high
school graduate, is being instructed
on the subject of Diesel engines.
The project is financed by gifts of
money and the loan qf automobiles
for ,transportation. The service is
helpful in giving the illiterates a new
sef-respect and ┬░confidence, :as well
as helping the students to improve
their capacity for tact and adjust-
ment, Arthur Dixon, reporter for The
Daily Tar Heel, said.
Date Is Named
Dea Designates March 31
Applications for the Marsh and the
randelbaum Scholarships must be
submitted on or before March 31 it
was announced yesterday by the of-
fice of the Dean of the College of
Literature, Science and the Arts.
Six Mandelbaum Scholarships are
,awardd annually carrying stipends
of about $400 apiece. Three are given
to men students in the literary col-
lege with three going to men in the
College of Engineering. The Marsh
Scholarships, of which there are usu-
ally six, carry stipends of between
$50 to $75. These are open to both
men and women students in the lit-

erary college.
Applications for these scholarships
may--be obtained at the office of the
Dean in Angell Hall. Announcement
of award is made in April or May.
Considered in making the awards
are character, need of financial assist-
ance 9nd scholarship, in the order
tamed. There are no minimum schol-
arship requirements, it was stressed.
Owing to the limited amount of funds
available, awards under these scholar
ships are made only to students whose
enrollment"in the college has exceeded
one year. Exceptions to this ruling'
are made only in very special in-

released in conjunction with the New
York World's Fair opening April 30.
There are today several limiting
factors to the widespread use of tele-
vision, Professor Holland cautions.
The first of these is the restricted
range of the television broadcasting
station. Ultra-high frequency bands
used for television broadcasting re-
quires that the receiver be in the
line of sight, thus limiting the re-
ception area of each station to a circle
of 45 to 50 miles radius, depending
