WASHINGTON, D. C., Nov. fl.— What kind of programs does the average radio listener want? That's thi! question broadcasters havo been asking themselves sinco radio began, but it has been loo broad for them to answer. Just a year ago, listeners everywhere complained about jumbled reception, and gave little thought to program diversification or advertising methods. To rectify conditions, the. federal radio commission switched the assigninunta of 91 per cent of the 600-odd stations in a nation-wide reallocatlon. That reception has vastly improved is evidenced In tho few complaints about interference With tlifi technical difficulties virtually overcome, the mind of the listener turned to tho type of program material. The commission ha.i been sending out questionnaires, but final results have not been tabulated, and at best, they will not represent tho views of only a small group of tho 46,000,000 listeners. Ono enterprising city—San Francisco —on ils own inlllallvo set. out to ascertain what was wrong Aylth programs In tho opinion of Ils own listen- era. Tho results are somewhat con- fusiigr, slnco the questions propoundec In some Instances conflicted. In any event, they arc worthy of nollcu, since they do give a cross-section of listener opinion on many of Iho questions that have arisen relative to programs, and radio likes and dislikes. Tho questionnaire wan sent to the membership of tho commonwealth /•.lub, to employes of the Southern Pacific railroad and to employes ol San Francisco's largest department store. The results of the questionnaire were based on 4,000 replies received. Of most national Importance, the •urvcy showed that 04 per cent of tho listeners felt local recaption was improved as compared with two yean ngo. Sixty-seven per cent reportei distances reception Improved; 117 per cent said they still try to get "dl.s tancc," whllu ft per cent responded Ilia were "tired of radio." Orchestral selections Is the fnvorlti type of musical programs, with men's voices running a close necotul. Sixty six per cent of the llslener.s said they preferred less of tlm "spolten word, 1 ' while 08 per cenl favored more educational lalks, f>5 pur cent more radio dramas; (18 per cent more classical mil sic; 85 per cent, more seml-classlca music, and 3fl per cent more Ja/./.. There were many and diverse npin Ions as to "what's wrong with radl< today," one of the leading questions £omn said there were too many .slu tions, and others too much advert is Ing, lack of Sunday variety, too many preachers, loo much Juz/., mcdlocrr announcers, or too many clgiircl IU|H. Chain programs are preferred by 7 per cent of the listeners. The re malnlng 29 per cent favored Imlivlilua stations. In the much-controverlei field of radio advertising, fi.'t per ceil of the HslencrH Mild they were "an noyed" by it while another 7 per ceil vtated particular types of coiriinercla programs were objectionable. Censor Ing of programs WIIH favored by 1111 pe cenl, while Ktl per cent responded the. "feel grateful to advertisers," for th types of programs they make avail able. One of the surprises was (lie re Bponxe to tlm query "do you enjoy III broadcast of phonograph recordings. Elghly-one per cenl said they did; th question required only a "yes" or "no' answer, and did not give, opporlunll for the listener to state whether h favored phonograph records as con pared to original programs. Here were the types of replies to th question; "Can you suggest a way llnance programs without advertisers?" "Tax set owners. Tax radio nuimi- faclurers. Government subsidy. Ha- dio clubs. Slot machine sets. Voluntary contributions. Free programs by educational groups. Philanthropic subsidy. Tax phone bills. Municipal tmbsldy. Tax railroad tickers and transfers 1 cenl each. Tax with seal on sets and notice posted at front door. Tax sport and amusement gate receipts." Officers were elected and other business marking the end of tho year's activities was transacted at the monthly meeting of the Blair County Historical society, held last evening at the Pcnn-Alto hotel.

Merry Christmas! Isn't It remarkable how these two old words hang together? It is hard to express greetings of the season without using them. It is difficult to say anything original in words—and yet youjaeed not cling to the conventional. *• This concern has departed from the ordinary line of Christmas greetings and are prepared to render service that will help patrons express originality. This year there are 125 designs that were selected from more than 1,000 styles. Many are creations of steel engravings or colored etchings without wording. On these designs you can put any wording or sentiment you choose in flat or raised letters and by this method it costs no more than adding the name alone. Then there are many beautiful designs with the sentiment artistically engraved to which the name can be added with type to match exactly, or they may be had without any printing when they choose to write in the name. An assortment of 12 designs, each one different, nicely boxed, that sell for $1.00, can be had without any additional printing for those who prefer to write their names. Should you wish to have your name added, this concern can do it with raised or flat letters to match the type style. Most of the line is sold for 5c, lOc and 15c each, but there are some of the more gorgeous greetings that sell up to 35c each. With the new system of relief engraving, names can be printed up to within a few days of Christmas, but it is recommended that your order be placed at once to get the best selection and have them delivered at a later date if you'prefer. It will be a pleasure to send a set of samples for your inspection and to call again for them in 24 hours. This places you under no obligation in any way. Call Bell 7171. Adv.
