for President Ruthven's talk in May
at the national meeting for the Uni-
versity Extension Service, Prof. Waldo
Abbot contacted both NBC and Col-
umbia networks for time, expecting
one of the two to comply. Both broad-

ported was that of one slide trom-
boner who accosted Jerry Wiesner,
Chief Radio Technician, to see if some
difficult passages, slowly played on
the instrument, could be speeded up
in recording to sound pretty good
when played back.

tations. John Gelder, '40, narrates;
