Chicago Meeting Leads to Birth of New NSA Group

TV Filming: An Intricate Task

(Continued from Page 1)
favored immediate affiliation,
while others were doubtful of the
partisan character of IUS.
But the majority felt it neces-
sary that NSA be linked with IUS
in the future since IUS was the
only widely representative student
group in the world and consti-
tuted the only possible means of
official contact with students of
the rest of the world.
The final resolution proposed
certain conditions under which
NSA affiliation with IUS was pos-
sible, and the NSA officers were
authorized to start negotiation
with IUS for affiliation in accord-
ance with such conditions.
An American negotiating dele-
gation was planned for the sum-
mer of 1948. Meanwhile James
Smith of the University of Texas
was sent to IUS headquarters as
NSA interim representataive in
Ellis' stead.
In spite of a number of dis-
agreements between the two or-
ganizations, Smith, who was sym-
pathetic with the humane goal in
the IUS idea, pursued discussions
on NSA-IUS relations.
It was not long, however, until
the whole idea of affiliation fell
down with the Czech Communist
1948 Czech Coup
Government Subverted
The Czech coup d'etat in Feb.,
1948, subverted the coalition gov-
ernment in parliamentary form
and gave a fatal blow to Czech
students who had criticized the
policy of IUS. Many were de-
nounced as fascist and shot or im-
prisoned. So were the minority
democratic elements of IUS, who

resisted vigorously oppressive
measures of the Gottwald dicta-
torial regime.
Smith tried to have the IUS
executive Committee condemn the
Communist action only to face
blunt refusal by the Committee.
Smith and Ellis submitted their
IUS, contrary to the purposes
on which it was founded, had
come as expected to commit itself
exclusively to a partisan political
ideology, functioning merely as a
puppet organ of the Soviet Com-
The IUS stand terminated any
official relation between USNSA
and. IUS.
Every possible effort was made
on the part of the USNSA, how-
ever, to continue practical cooper-
ation with IUS, in such matters as
traveling and participation in cul-
tural and relief activities.
The 1948 NSA Congress passed
a resolution on the matter, empha-
sizing the importance of contin-
uing practical cooperation with
the IUS.
This policy proved to be a total
failure by the second NSA Con-
gress in 1949 because of adminis-
trative and other difficulties be-
tween NSA and IUS.
"Peoples Democracy Praised"
In the meantime, IUS pursued
as ever, partisan policies, includ-
ing strong attacks on the West
and praise of "people's democra-
cy." In spite of a concerted effort
by some of the Western unions to
have IUS change its stand on the
Czech coup, no concession was
Shortly after the Czech revolu-
tion, several national unions of
students suspended membership

in IUS, the Irish, Danish, Swedish
and Swiss.
Expulsion of Yugoslavs
Following the Cominform con-
demnation of Titoism early in
1948, the IUS Council Meeting of
1949 violently attacked the Yugo-
slav students as "fascist agents,
imperialist servants, betrayers of
the peace."
The IUS Executive Committee

formally expelled YUS from IUS
membership soon after the Coun-
cil meeting, despite the fact that
the IUS constitution does no au-
thorize the Execuive Committee to
expel a member organization.
This action finally caused the
British NUS and French NUS
(UNEF) to disaffiliate from the
three year old International Un-
ion of Students.

IN THE STUDIO-In this scene In the main studio, the Baroque Trio (one member absent) prepare
to televise one of their series of programs for the University's Television Hour. The camera is one o
four modern pedestal-type studio cameras in use at the TV office. At the top of the picture is part o
the mike boom and a few of the many lights with which the studio is equipped.

Time, Skill,
Until you see a TV show in the
making, it is difficult to imagine
what a complex and tedious pro-
cess such a production is.
The time and talents of liter-
ally dozens of people are involved
in the production of even a simple,
half-hour telecourse program-
producer, writer, directors, engin-
eers, cameramen, stagehands, ar-
tists and talent, to nime just a
In the case of a telecourse pro-
gram, as for example, the upcom-
ing series on "Marriage," a pro-
ducer-writer is first assigned to
each half-hour unit. He works
with the instructor in writing,
editing and preparing the final
After a series of organizational
meetings, the program goes into
the actual production stages, when
the graphics and visual aids re-
quirements are given to the art
's and staging directors. If the show
f is particularly complicated, a stag-
f ing and lighting rehearsal is held.
In the final meeting, the show
goes through an hour of dry run
and three hours of camera and
dress rehearsal before being kine-
Meanwhile, in the control room,
a camera director and a technical
director, aided by a video 'and an
audio engineer, handle the techni-
cal and mechanical details of the
To the uninitiated observer, the
control room procedure i a bit
confusing. There are two banks of
four camera monitors each, one
for the use of the director and one
for the technical director or
switcher and the video engineer.
In addition, there is a preview
monitor, by which the director can
preview the next shot, a line moni-
tor, for viewing the shot that is
on the air, and a film room moni-
tor, for preview of film or slides
being used in the presentation.
The switcher is seated at a board
covered with lights, buttons and
switches, manipulating them as
the director calls the shots.
The director is the busiest man
eo in the room. He watches the script
nt and the monitors, and master-
of minds the actual airing of the
of show.
'pe When rehearsals are completed,
the show is aired, or put on kine-
scope film.

Working engineers.. .


may continue study to earn Master's degree


Ambitious young engineering graduates today
want to be in two places at the same time. They
want to be employed as quickly as possible, work-
ing daily at a job that offers promise of a reward-
ing career. They also want to be in the classroom,
pursuing advanced studies they know to be so
essential to real professional achievement.
Recognizing the many significant benefits to be
gained by that two-fold ambition - benefits that
accrue both to the individuals, personally, and
to the company employing them - Pratt & Whit-
ney Aircraft has developed an extensive graduate
fellowship program. Within easy commuting dis-
