EVENING TIMES, CUMBERLAND, MD.. WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 15, 1948 Radio Ringside By John M. Cooper .. NEW YORK, —. (INS) — It'used to" "be that a radio station could cover a news'event by sending out ari"armouncer and-an engineer. . 'The-anouncer'dld the announcing, the-' engineer did the engineering, and if nothing went wrong, the customers- heard .what was happening. Sometimes one man did both the announcing and the engineering and in addition, carried the equipment back to the station. As radio grew . up and gol more complicated, more people were needed. Six people might '. have'to go out on a two-minute? • network pickup. One announcer "still rticl the announcing, and ...one engineer still did the engineering;. What the other ./our 'did was not .always clear, al-I, though.it's possible that one of - them came along- to hold a stop ! .watch. . Now .we get down, to modern times and discover that in order to cover the inauguration of President Truman oh Jan.' 20, CNBC alone., will use more than 250 people. Television makes the difference. This staff will include commentators, . a n n o 11 n c c r.s, cameramen,' rewrite men, cng- . inecrs,-reporters, directors and electricians. They'll be posted along the route of. the'inaugu- ral, parade, on the ground, in . windows, in automobiles and in a. blimp overhead.

C.: In my'opinion it's a godsend to.Peg- that you are able to keep- your head—and thir.k and see straight—in .the midst of this family turmoil engendered primarily by Peg's popularity versus her handicapped sister's wallflower status. I believe if yoiu 1 husband, will sit down quietly with 'himself .and search his, feelings, he will find that his .emotional resistance to the idea of Peg's marrying has its origin in pity'for Beth, whose, lack of. appeal for the -opposite sex doubtless, bothers him almost as much as it disturbs her.' I daresay his Jong-time insistence that he wants to keep his daughters forever had the original gallant purpose, sentimental or studied, of (1) delicately preparing Beth for the spinster-role-he. .regretfully foresaw,-and (2) compensating to her.for. lack of chivalrous tribute from other'male source's. Younger Sinter , Needs Champion I suggest that eventually he lost sight of 'the reason why he launched the possessive refrain; also, that his feelings later-- blindly accepted the statement as literal truth. One's "unconscious" operates that way. Witness the folk-saying comes to believe it himself. . Thus it would follow that by now, when Peg is literally marriage-bent; he reacts involuntarily with vehement protest that embodies- hidden aggressive pity for Beth, plus conditioned paternal possessiyeness. And I-believe, when-he. understands this, that he will reasonably endorse Peg's inalienable human right to fall-in love and marry. As a college graduate, -she is socially ready for that further development; and neither parent should .countenance Beth's spoiled- child'assumption. that. Peg. has no title to forms of happiness that Beth is unable, or afraid, to court independently f or'' herself.' So, to sum up, -your husband's attitude •(as describe"d) is wrong; and certainly Peg' should not be burdened with constant care, and concern for Beth,' who seems to love nobody but, herself.
