Future plans call for broadening the programs for other levels of school listeners. "We are not attempting to replace the rural teacher," he continued. "The aim of the new series is to supplement the formal program now in existence in rural schools. If we are to be successful, close co-operation between our staff and the teacher is absolutely necessary." Will Mail Schedules Teachers taking advantage of the programs will be mailed broadcasting schedules 2 weeks in advance.

Teachers are urged to keep in contact with the radio stations to inform them of audience reaction to the programs and to the methods of presentation. Teachers with particular specialized talents may be able to arrange broadcasts from the studios, Highlander said. In this way, such, talents will be made available not to the one school alone, but to all classrooms at the same time. Highlander added that in the future all such programs may be broadcast entirely over the FM station.
