At last a concrete plan for
bringing a steady stream of good
educational programs over TV
has been proposed.
Eastern viewers will be pleased
to hear the New York Board of
Regents has planned a state-wide
network of 11 educational TV sta-
tions in which the resources of
schools, colleges, libraries, mu-
seums and art galleries would be
used to provide special programs
for children and adults.
The plan will probably cause
great controversy among those
who believe in offering pro-
grams that will "sell" easily and
readily, which usually means
subordination of the public
welfare to the sponsor's welfare.
However, it should serve to
unite and give hope to those who
believe communication media have
a responsibility to give the public
something more than the aver-
age low grade inanity which oc-

cupies a majority of the TV in-
dustries time.
A PROGRAM which has become
increasingly more polished and in-
teresting is "Introducing Poetry,"
heard from noon to 12:30 p.m. to-
day over WHRV.
It consists of a panel reading
and discussing the works of ma-
jor poets, both ancient and mo-
dern. On the panel are three
regular members; Prof. Marvin
Felheim, Prof. Herbert Bar-
rows, and Prof. William Stein-
hoff, all of the University Eng-
lish department, and also one
other guest member who is an
authority on the particular poet
under consideration.
Today the panel will read and
unravel the mysteries of T. S.
Eliot's poetry. Aside from being
enjoyable this program is also an
excellent way of painlessly pick-
ing up a little knowledge.
HENRY MORGAN has come up
with a new TV show. You can
never accuse Morgan of being
stagnant. .this program, never-
theless, has "old-type" skits and
includes the usual line-up of co-
medians, singers, and of course
This program seems better suit-
ed for television than his previous
"talent scout" show. It's good
amusement at 8:30 p.m. Friday
on WWJ-TV.

Since he began working, the
problem has shown itself to be

If production can be completed
before the end of the semester,
"Metamorphosis" will have its
world premiere here within a
month. If not, work will continue,
and it will be released in the fall.
"If we manage this," Hampton
said, "it will be the first time a
university group has ever done
anything on this scale, though it
is the universities which offer the
finest opportunity for the exer-
cise of student interest in films:
ideas, enthusiasm, and a tremend-
