vacation time and more leisure
Unfortunately, it also means the
time for winter radio programs to
give way to the many mediocre
summer shows.
MANY PEOPLE who do not have
time to listen to the radio during
the winter months find themselves
confronted with much leisure time
in the warmer weather.
However, radio networks don't
acknowledge this fact, but make
summertime vacation time for
many of their better performers.
This results in the actual dimin-
ishing of radio listeners in a
time when there should be an
For example, NBC has an-
nounced that an Erle Stanley
Gardner mystery series, "A Life
In Your Hands," will replace Art
Linkletter's entertaining "People
Are Funny" show, a Tuesday night
listening favorite to many.
LISTENERS ARE expected to
accept, instead of the humorous
antics of Linkletter and contest-
ants on the "People Are Funny"
show, Carleton Kadell as Jonathan
Kegg, a retired attorney who acts
as an amicus curiae (friend of the
court) in clearing innocent sus-
pects in criminal cases.
Nothing personal against Mr.
Kadell, but many people find it
difficult to replace a favorite hu-
mor show with a program with
the old "crime does not pay" plot
where the hero always wins. This
results in turning off the radio
and seeking another entertain-
ment medium.
This is just one of the many

"changes made on the radio sched-
ules during the summer, with most
of the changes having similar ef-
fects. However, there are two or
three exceptions to this pattern.
* * *
ONE GOOD example is "The
Railroad Hour," a Monday eve-
ning favorite to many music lov-
ers. This show will not leave the
air during the summer months, but
will co-star Lucille Norman with
baritone Gordon MacRae in a
"summer almanac" series. Carmen
Dragon will continue to lead the
Each program in the "alma-
nac" will be devoted to tuneful
recollections of a different era
in American history. Historical
events as well as styles in music
will be recalled.
MacRae began his musical ca-
reer when he won a contest for
male singers and appeared briefly
in a Billy Rose show at the World's
Fair. After trying his hand at act-
ing in a small playhouse he became
a page at NBC in New York.
HORACE HEIDT offered bim a
job as vocalist in 1941.
From here he jumped to fame,
winning parts in Broadway plays
and staring on NBC's "Teen-
timers." A recording contract,
followed . by . a . contract with
Warner Brothers, came next. As
star of the "Railroad Hour,"
MacRae combines his singing
and acting talents.
Miss Norman rose to stardom af-
ter winning a Metropolitan Opera
contest. A frequent guest on the
"Railroad Hour" during its regular
season, she has appeared in sever-
al motion pictures, including "Mu-
sical Masterpieces" and "For Me
and My Gal."
DRAGON, musical director of
the "Railroad Hour," won an Aca-
demy Award in 1944 for his score
for "CoverGirl."
Combine the talents of MacRae,
Miss Norman and Dragon every
Monday night and you end up
with an hour of listening enjoy-
The opening summer show at 8
p.m. tomorrow will feature events
and fashions from the year 1927.
ROTC To Hold
The annual graduation and de-
coration ceremonies of the Univer-
sity ROTC will be held at 7 p.m.
tomorrow evening at Ferry Field.
Ninety Army and Air Force RO-
TC students will receive their re-
serve commissions from University
Provost James Adams, 2nd Lt., Ar-
my and Air Force Reserves.
Honorary awards for military
leadership and academic achieve-
ment will be awarded to 22 out-
standing ROTC students, and Sec-
ond Lieutenant commissions in the
regular Army will be presented to
Robert Legate, '50E, and Kenneth
Greider, '50E.
A parade and military review of
500 ROTC students will follow the
presentation of the awards. In case
of rain, the ceremonies will be
held in Yost Field House.

Machines Capture Headlines
At Two Eastern Colleges

Machines were in the spotlight
of campus news last week-on the
campus of the City College of New
York a projected machine would
offer possible relief from long
registration, while at Harvard's
Stoughton Hall the inmates were
having trouble keeping their fav-
orite machines - telephones.
*- *
der would permit registration in
five minutes, or so its inventor,
Raymond Lazinski, a senior in
electrical engineering claimed.
It's all very simple, the way
Lazinski explained it. A regis-
trant would give the machine's
trained operator a list of the
subjects he wanted to take, the
free periods he wanted and the
time he wanted to have his first
and last classes each day.
The operator would feed this
information to the machine, and,
bingo, the student would have a
pile of cards outlining all the
possible schedule combinations
which would fill his requirements.
* * *
THE STUDENT would pick the
program he liked best, and give
it to the machine. The infernal
thing would even close sections if

But there is one difficulty -
of course.
The cost of installing and keep-
ing such a wonder working would
be more thantequal to the current
cost of registration. So CCNY is
not going to install the machine.
THE HARVARD difficulty re-
volved around "penny spinning,"
a practice by which the bright
Harvard lads had been getting
free calls on the pay phones in-
stalled in the school's dormitories.
Things got so bad at Stoughton
- from the telephone company's
point of view, that is - that the
house's two pay phones were re-
moved. Irate telephone officials'
steamed that it was because of "a
long and continued abuse of
phone facilities."
The removal came soon after
the phone company had put in
an apparatus which was "spin
proof," they thought.
The men in the house evidently
took this as a direct affront and
put a chart up by the new phone,
with a check mark on it for each
successful penny call on the new
When telephone officials dis-
covered this chart and the checks
on it, the phones were yanked.
