^ V * " •' ; Ttffltof STATIONS ORDERED. OFF AIR B# ROfifilt| MACK, Stuff Correfpotident. (Cofcyttght, 1929, by Consolidated Press Association.) WASHINGTON, D. C., Nov. 4.— On the warpath with a vengeance, the federal radio commission has ordered off the air twenty broadcasting stations In all parts of the country because they had failed to file applications for renewal of tfieir licenses. The existing licenses of these stations, locals and reglonals, expired at 8 a. m., Oct. 31, at which time no formal applications for renewals had been received. At the same time the commission shook up the assignments on the air of more than a dofcen stations operating in the middle west, practically all of them large stations. It Is part of a program .mapped out by the commission to rid localities of interference, improve reception and generally straighten out the broadcasting setup. Within the past fortnight it has ordered shifts in regional assignments in Florida and California, to clean up local Interferences. Gradually it intends to sweep over the country, adjusting shortcomings in the set up which have been noticed since the sweeping reallocatlon Of just a year ago, Ift which the assignments of 94 per .cettt of the stations were changed. The stations summarily ordered off the air and which must stand trial before their licenses again may be renewed are! \ QEFS, Gloucester, Mass.; WMDL, Tupper Lake, N. Y. { WHBC g Canton, O.; WDAB, Tampa, Fla.; WMBL, Lakeland, Fla.; WTNT, Nashville, Tenn.; KGDK, San Antonio, Tex.; KGHG, McGehee, Ark.; KGHX, Richmond, Tex.; KTBS, Shreveport, La.; WBBC, Valparaiso, Ind., 'KFKZ, Kirkville, Mo.; KGCU, Mandan, N. D.; KLPM, Minot, N. D.; KDB, Santa Barbara, Calif.; KSBI, Po- catellO, Ida.; KUOM, Mlssoula, Mont.; WIBR, Steubenvllle, O.; WRK, Hamilton, O., and WBBY, Charleston, S. C. The action of deleting station is in line with the confirmed belief of commissioners that there are too many stations on the air, but that it would be unjust to order stations olf the air without provocation. The policy has been adopted that any stations violating basic regulations of the commission will suffer the supreme penalty. Should any of the stations give plausible reasons for their failure to file license renewals, they unquestionably will be reinstated, the twenty stations cited, the commission points out, now are unlicensed, and shcmld have been off the air at 3 a. m., Oct. 31. "It is presumed that the stations are not now operating," the commission states in its formal order spilling the demise of the stations. In realigning the fourth, zone setup, the commission adopted recommendations of the engineering division "because it is considered that the public will be considerably benefltted and because certain Important ota- tions will receive bettor assignments than at present." The changes become effective Dec. 1. Station WDAB, operated by the Kansas City Star, is gjven full time on the 610 kilocycle, channel, in lieu of Its six-sevenths^ time, with ita present power of 1,000 watts. Station WOQ, of Kansas City, to make room for the newspaper station, will be shifted to 1,300 kilocycles with two- sevenths time to share with station KFH, Wichita Kan. Station WCFL, operated by the Chicago Federation of Labor and a strong contestant for a better radio opportunity for organized labor, .will be switched from a daylight only cleared channel station, to a full time regional station. The labor station, •which has operated with 1,500 watts on 970 kilocycles, is reduced in power to 1,000 watts at night and placed on "1,280 kilocycles with free run of that channel. During the_day it is authorized to continued using 1,000 watts. Station' WIBW,. Topeko, Kan., will operate on 580 kilocycles and share time with station KSAV, Manhattan, Kan., shifting from Its present 1,300 kilocycle channels. WIBW's power is reduced from 1,000 watts to GOO watte night and from 2,500 watts day to 1,000 watts. WSUI, Iowa City, la., was changed from 580 kilocycles to 600 kilocycles, sharing time with PWMT, Waterloo, la., WSUI'S power to remain at BOO •watts.
