Federal ' Communications Commission has issued a tentative permit for a third. radio station In Cumberland. .. • •''''• The permit was granted yesterday to Richard Aubrey -(Dyke) Ha'ese, Morgantown, W.

Kaese said panies expressed then- willingness to have a local outlet-at hearings In Washington last July and here •In October. 1947. " Raese said he will come to Cumberland later this week for a conference with a Washington engineer about a. possible building site. . Although Raese said it would be impossible to say- when the station will go on the air until he has completed his conferences, with the engineer, it was reported that he hopes to have it in operation within *ix months, Raese said he has made no application for a. frequency modulation station license, but explained, that his station and antenna will be constructed to include such'facilitles If he should receive a permit. He added that applications for television stations are closed. Since this Is the case, he added, he has no definite . Intentions concerning television facilities. '.-. • The new station will employ from 15 to 20 people, as many as possible qualified Cumberlanders, Raese said. Yesterday's FCC order affirmed findings of last July 20. The seven- member commission announced that Chairman 'Wayne. Coy and Commissioners Frieda Hennock and Robert P. Jones favored a grant to the Tri-State Broadcasting Company, of Cumberland. The tentative grant in July would have become final in 20 days; but Tri-State filed an exception to Jie findings to require an oral hearing later in Washington. The commission said the new itation will cause some slight interference to Station WAJR in Mor- C&ntown and WCRO~ Johnstown, Pa, However, the commission stated that this factor was outweighed b> the large number of-persons In the Cumberland 'area who will receive additional broadcast service. ; Raese, formerly basketball coach at Davis (W.Va.)

Va.,- and extensive sand limestone,. coke and utilities in Preston county. West-Virginia. . Raese has- been primarily: concerned with radio enterprises, but indicated at hearings here in October, 1947, that he would sever connections with Greer 'companies move to Cumberland and operate the station as a personal business if granted the'license.'- C.&P.Company Wins Round In Rate Increase Public Service Group 1 Turns Down Motion To DismissiPhone Request .
