Al/TOQNA MIRROR—THURSDAY, NOVEMBER CHAIN PROGRAMS TO BE CONTINUED n.v IlOUfcltT MACK, Stuff (Copyright, 1929, by Consolidated PrM« A.iBoclntlon.) WASHINGTON, D. C., Nov. 7.—Another attempt to regulate the broad- c.ftstlngf or chain programs with the objective of clilmniiting excessive duplication, for I he listener, has failed —after ulrenuoiw objections to It were voiced by M. H. Aylnswnrlh, prcsl''"-* and othoi- executives of the Ni tlonal Broadcasting company. • By a. threo to two voln, the federal radio commission rejected thn Sykes proposal which woultl hftvo minimi all hlgh-poweroa stations subscribing to -chain programs/to get. the commls- sion'g sanction. Commissioner E, O. Sykes, author of the propoiml, and Chairman Ira E. Robinson, both of Whom engaged In n. sharp donate with Mr. Aylesworth about the proposed regulation, voted for It. Commissioners Harold A. Lnfount, Charles McK. Saltzmnn, and W. D. L. btar- bnck dissented. Mr.. Aylesworth lust Thursday told tho commission that If the order was adopted it would spell doom for the N B. C. Hn challenged the commission's authority to regulate chain program duplication. Tho commission also rejected another proposal by Commissioner. Syken—to order additional experiments for simultaneous operation of broadcasting stations of high power on tho samo channel, when separated by l«rgo geographical atretchc». He proposed these experiments with a view to hastening tho arrival of synchronization of stations, and thus making possible multiple operation of stations on the same frequency without ruinous interferences. Synchronization would In large measure solve the problem of congestion In the broadcast band. The vote on this proposal wan tho «amo as on the chain plan. A third action of the commission, approved unanlmouBly, was to Issue, a new general order, tightening up on violations by stations of commission orders 8.nd other radio regulations Under It statibns guilty of any violation, whatever, and so notified by an Inspection of tho commerce department, who polices the ether in his territory, within three dayH must give an explanation, in writing, of- the reason for the violations and the steps taken- to avoid recurrences. The chain order was tho big JHSUC however, Commissioner Syltes had Insisted last week that he would press for a vote on It, In the face of thn vigorous opposition of the N. B. C Ho said It would In no way Impair tho operations of the chains, but, In tho long run, would help them. But three of tho commissioners could not wee It that way, and took heed to tho warnings of Mr, Aylosworth and tha other N. B, C. exooutlveu. The proposed chain ' order, which heretofore has never been made public, and which now is definitely killed In its present form, reads: "It Is hereby ordered that after Jan, 20, 1830, no broadcasting station of 6,000 watts power or moru will be permitted to regularly broadcast chain programs '•unless It shall have been authorized in writing to do so by tho • commission. "Applications for nuch authorlxatloh shall be made to tho commission In writing by. tho licensee and should bo attached to, and mada a part Of tha application for renewal of radl< broadcasting 1 station llconse. Such 'an plication 'shall Mate tho name of thi chain whose programs it desires to rogularly broadcast and tho approxl /mate, number of hours por day anc of chain broadcasting in which it proposes to engage. . , "It la further ordered that no two stations of the above power, locatcc within the mime state shall bo permitted to broadcast the same chain program simultaneously unless tho commission shall be .satisfied that tho geographical separation In mileage or the character of transmission of tho station or stations Is such that there wil be ho objectionable duplication of programs. The permission given to broad* cast chain programs will be for th« duration of the license of the station "Stations BO authorized are permitted ,4° broadcast any or all of tho pro- grama of the chains whose programs they are authorized to broadcast without further authorization from tho commission." The simultaneous operation propos* wa» that ntatlim WAW, at Ulrmlng- llam, be authorised for tho next three months, to broadcast on each of four cleared channels of other stations, full time, as an experiment. Those other Mtatlon» were ICO A, Denver, KNX, Los Angeles, WBZ, Springfield, Mass, and KJR, Seattle. Dlstancum of approximately 1,000 miles separate these stations from Birmingham.

We removed the prejudice against cigarettes when we removed harmful corrosive ACRIDS (pungent irritants) from the tobaccos. Y EARS ago, when cigarettes were made without the aid of modern science, there originated that ancient prejudice against all cigarettes. That criticism is no longer justified. LUCKY STRIKE, the finest cigarette you ever smoked, made of the choicest tobacco, properly aged and skillfully blended—-"It's Toasted." "TOASTING." the most modern step in cigarette manufacture, removes from LUCKY STRIKE harmful irritants which are present in cigarettes manufactured in the old-fashioned way. Everyone knows that heat purifies, and so "TOASTING"— LUCKY STRIKE'S extra secret process—removes harmful cor- ros^ve ACRIDS (pungent irritants) from LUCKIES which in the old-fashioned manufacture of cigarettes cause throat irritation and coughing. Thus "TOASTING" has destroyed that ancient prejudice against cigarette smoking by men and by women. It's toasted" »» 'T'S TOASTED 1 !o TUNE IN- 01B2S, The American Tol Irritation-No Cough.
