Waller at teachers' conference
Educational Director Of Network Declares Juvenile Programs Safe Hurls Challenge At Conference of Teachers By S. II. STEINHAUSER There isn't a single objectionable children's program on the National Broadcasting airwaves, if you want to accept the word of Miss Judith Waller, educational director for the network. As NBC's representative at the conference of the Committee on Radio in Education Miss Waller challenged the educators to name a ringle objectionable program. She offered to prove that every broadcast designed to entertain juvenile isteners was backed up by historical Tact. No one accepted her challenge but -ne male educator lost his temper ong enough to tell the lady "I'm getting damn tired of what my children listen to." And Miss Waller told him, that being a teacher, he rught begin at home by training his ' hildren to realize what is good or l ad for them. And that settled . lings at least as far as trying to :.et the better of a woman in an ; rgument was concerned. Which is a round about way cf Predicting that NBC will leave its hildren's programs alone while Columbia employs a psychologist -nd a board of advisors to choose programs for the children's ears. Yesterday's Press detailed how the Columbia chain decided to fix definite limits for commercial blurbs. TBC will leave this to "good taste" of the program directors. NBC looks at programs advertising ures for bodily ills as undesirable nee contracts expire or stars go on vacation, for a vacation is con-: :dered an automatic lapse and can- ellation of contract. Otherwise such programs may continue but no new ones will be added. NBC issued this order seven nonths ago and has since been try-ng to rid itself of programs considered "not in good taste." To get back to Miss Waller for a moment. She was manager of '7MAQ in Chicago when Amos 'n' . ndy were Sam 'n' Henry and actu-: !ly gave the boys their start as big . Imers and network stars. She boss- d Bill Hay, Amos 'n' Andy's announcer, Bill Hedges, former KDKA rianager, and John Gihon and Roy Ilasenbalg, present KDKA moguls. '.Then Chicago's Century of Progress vent on the air she was the direc-i ir of broadcasts so she speaks with onsiderable authority and knowledge of radio. On Your Radio Tonight 6:00 KDKA Cy King.
