Television Lessons Help
Solve Education Crisis

By CAROL NORTH
For a nation that prides itself
on its'high level of public educa-
tion, statistics show that there are
approximately 3.5 million illiter-
ates in this country.
More figures tell of at least 700,-
000 public school students who were
forced to attend classes only half-
time because of a lack of school
rooms last year. The increasing
shortage of qualified teachers is
well-known.
These are the facts of America's
crisis in education. Educational
television is now playing an in-
creasingly important role in solv-
ing this problem.
Constructive Programs
ETV has brought better teach-
ing into the nation's schoolrooms;
constructive after school TV pro-
grams to children; more and bet-
ter cultural programs to those who
want them; high school and col-
lege courses into the homes for
adults and increased know-how to
farmers, w o r k e r s ,housewives,
craftsmen and business men.
By 1950 more money was being
spent on tickets to classical music
concerts than for admission to
baseball games.
The ETV movement has now
penetrated, in one degree or an-
other, well over 100 communities
in almost every state and in three
territories.
A license to operate an ETV
station may be held by any recog-
nized educational or cultural insti-

tution, including a non-profit or-
ganization established for the pur-
pose, but not by state or munici-
pal governments as such. Stations
must be available to all education-
al and cultural institutions within
their broadcast area.
Stations Not Commercial
ETV stations are non-commer-
cial and non-profit; air time can-
not be sold. The locally owned and
operated stations complement rath-
er than compete with commercial
stations.
From necessity educational TV
must be free from dependence
upon advertising, free of the re-
strictions of commercial telecast-
ing, free of strictly limited time
segments, free to program for au-
diences of small size and free to
experiment with ideas and tech-
niques.
Stations in rural communities
add new outlooks to the traditional
agricultural extension work of fed-
eral and state governments. In
case of emergency, experts could
brief more farmers in a single TV
demonstration than could be reach-
ed by county agents working over-
time for weeks or months.
Indiana Tickets
Tickets for the Indiana football
game may be brought to the Union
student offices from 3 to 5 p.m. to-
day, for resale from 9:45 a.m. to
noon tomorrow.

(Continued from Page 1)
Jeffery was joined by his daugh-
ter Joan, 22, who had slipped a
sympatheticbystander's raincoat
over her bathrobe. "My aunt is
badly crippled by arthritis," Miss
Jeffery said. "She is going to leave
for Texas in a few weeks to spend
the winter."
The time was now 5 a.m. and
the house which was once the
residence of University president
Hutchins was still an inferno.
Students, some of them in paja-
mas and bathrobes, were still
milling about at 5:10, two hours
after the blaze had begun.
"I don't think that there's any
hope for that house," one of them
said. "Why are they shooting that
hose down there when the flames
are on top," shouted another, as
the firemen continued fighting
the conflagration.
Bring Out Purse
At 5:15 the firemen brought out
Mrs. Hendrikson's purse and gave
it to Joan. It was completely
charred.
"Isn't it funny," she said, only
now realizing the implications, "we
were just speaking together. I just
spoke to my aunt a couple of hours
ago."
An ambulance drove up at 5:18.
Firemen carried a stretcher into
the house which was now smoking,
although all the flames had been
extinguished.
There was frost on its windows
as the ambulance drove away.
Dawn was breaking. The sign with
the red blinking light that had
been hastily placed on the corner
of Monroe and Packard read
"Danger."

UNION OPERA DIRECTOR FRED EVANS LOOKS OVER
"HAIL TO VICTOR!" SCRIPT
Evans Arrives To Direct

Allt Male Mu,
The Union Opera swung into
high gear this week as Fred Evans
arrived from New York to take
over directing duties for this year's
show, "Hail to Victor!"
A 30-year veteran of show busi-
ness, Evans has directed the Opera
for five of its 35-year history.
"The music for this year's show
sounds excellent," Evans said.
"It's even better than the last two
shows." Evans pointed out that
there were the usual problems of
selecting scenery and costumes
and planning the staging for the
all-male production.

sica l Show
"The boys always do an excel-
lent job," he commented, although
the Opera must wgrk on a close
budget.
Casting for the production, will
probably be completed early next
week, according to Jay Grant, '55,
general chairman. Local perform-
ances are scheduled for Dec. 8, 9
and 10, with a six-stop roadshow
tour during Christmas vacation.
This year's opera was written by
Murry Frymer, '56, and tells the
story of how coeds first came to
the University.
