For advocates of practical higher
education, the speech department's
handling of radio writing and act-

13 shows weekly from its studios

philosophy of Prof. Garnet Gar-
rison, who is in charge of the radio
courses that student work should
be given preference.
Tracing a script through its
stages of development from assign-
ment to final recording and broad-
cast, gives an insight into the
practical experience students are
gaining from the department's
The 19 students in Speech 187,
Radio Writing, provide the original
scripts for the semester. They are
aided by a backlog from the past
semester's unused work, and adap-
tations are made by advance
classes. However, they have to stick
to a rigorous schedule in order to
keep this stockpile brimming with
good scripts.
Instructor Merrill McClatchey's
first assignment is a children's
script for the department's show,
"Down Story Book Lane." After
this, the class does one other gen-
eral script which may be any type
of show and the third assignment
is a TV script.
Last semester the class practiced
a "series" work by having each
member do an episode in an after-
noon adventure thriller, "Capt.
Hamilton of the Air Force."
Scripts are edited by McClatchey
and returned to the students for
revisions. After the author's final
touch up, the show is re-typed by
the department secretary and
copies are mimeographed for fu-
ture casting.
After scripts are chosen for pro-
duction by Prof. Garrison, students
are cast by Casting Director Bette
Fuller, from an audition file made
at the beginning of the semester.
Sound effects men, engineers
and directors are also selected from
the classes in these subjects, and
finally the entirely student-per-
formed show is rehearsed, tape re-
corded, and broadcast from one
of the local stations.
