For the second successive year,' a. former Oreeley juan lias placed second as the top television persoii- allly on the west coast. That is the honor won recently by Bill Welsh, son of Mr. and Mrs. . W. H. Welsh of 1909 Tenth avenue. The award, known as the "Emmy," Is made hy the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. It is equivalent to the "Oscar" awarded in motion pictures. This year Bill was edged out by Ed Wyuii and in 1949 it was Milton Berlc who barely won over the , Colorudoan. Tlie Greeley man showed his loyalty to his home town and alma mater" last spring when the Colorado State College of Education basotall team was in Los Angeles for the NCAA playoffs. During one of Ills broadcasts, he told about the team, the college and Greeley. He t also "plugged" the games on some of his oilier shows. Known as "Mr. Television" to thousands of Southern Californians, Bill Is a pioneer in the field and is one of the most versatile announcers In the business. He did the first telecast of a Hose Bowl football game and started daytime ad lib shows. The telecnster received most of his radio background In Denver. He was on the KFBL staff from 1935 to 1942. Before that he worked at KFKA. Following four years of service with the Office of War Information durlnK the war. he went to Loa Ani;eles nnd c.ntcred television in 1 1940. Ho immediately became one of the most popular announcers in the industry. He lias dpno more shows than any other announcer on the coast and has covered nil type.-- (if sports. This piist summer a new field opened up for him when Warner Brothers tabbed him for parts In several productions that are scheduled for release In 19T.O. Radio audiences are n cinch compared to television addicts. Bill says and cites the celebrated case of bis glasses. For years he had worn rimless glasses but soon after his entry into television oculists and optometrists lodged a com- v plaint with his sponsors. They said his glasses failed to register on the video screen. The eye men Rave him a set of born rims that made Winston Churchill's "rlmmcrs" look delicate. Tbis appeased one group but women fans started complaining;. They didn't like the way bo looked ^ In his new specs. The battle raged »nd a poll was taken. Weary switchboard operators answered 1,100 calls In n few hours. The horn rims won by 50 votes. So, ho wore them. But still tho complaints poured In. HlB sponsors went into huddle and eamo up with * compromise. The tops of his glaaset »r» shell rimmed ·» »nd the bottoms arerlmless. mon subject for Sunday, March 12.

Sermon: Passages from the Bible (King James Version) include: "For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketli for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; While we look not at the things which are seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the tilings which are not seen are eternal" (It Cor. 4:17, 18). Correlative passages from "Science nnd Health with Key to the Scriptures," by Mary Baker Eddy, include: "Matter, with its mortality, cannot be substantial if Spirit Is substantial and eternal. Which ought to ho substance to us,--the erring, changing, and dying, the mutable and mortal, or the unerring, immutable, and immortal?" (pp. 278, 279).
