10 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE FEBRUARY 17 1931 RADIO CITY SEEN AS ACTUALITY IN 3 YEARS TO GOME Practical Television to See Completion of Joy Center. By C. E,' BUTTERFIEIJO Associated Press Radio Editor NEW YORK, Feb. 17. (ff)--Radio City, the huge entertainment center to be erected in Fifth Avenue, New York, will be an actuality Within three years, coincident with the establishment of .practical radio television, M. H. Aylesworth, president of the National Broadcasting company, declared today. Construction work on the large group of buildings, he said, should be well under way this spring, in keeping with plans that call for completion and occupation in 1934. To Correlate Branches. The enterprise is to correlate the theater, the movies, music and broadcasting, both sound and sight, within a single group of buildings. The basic idea, said Mr. Aylesworth, is to capitalize the potentialities of the present age of electrical entertainment. Besides two huge theaters, elaborate provisions are to he made for broadcasting, which will have separate facilities. In this part of Radio City, every possible provision is to be made for television, including special studios for the production of the visual programs. ; Explains Flans. Mf. Aylesworth explained that plans for the center, which will be built by the Rockefeller interests for the Radio. Corporation of America, and its associates, NBC and RKO, were being carefully worked out, necessitating considerable time. Those in. charge are co-operating with the Metropolitan- Opera company with the hope of its possible participation. Speaking of television Mr. Ayles- "CHEERFUL EARFUL" Just Say~ Charge It!

Kalm, millionaire banker.

TIP BY MELLON WAS NOT TAKEN , (Continued From Page I). March, 1929, as most folk doubtless will remember. Obviously, however, H cannot have been very easy for him to say so. Imagine!--if he had said so; if he had given it as his considered opinion, as secretary of the treasury, that stocks were away too high; that a smash was inevitable. Naturally the smash would have occurred--right then. Yes, and what would' businessmen have said about Secretary Mellon? --for "precipitating" it. Why, he would have been blamed for everything that has happened since then. Of course he would. Yet he was worried. He wanted to broadcast a warning- and he couldn't. * * ^ T HAT was just the time when President Hoover was organizing his cabinet. In my capacity as a chronicler of Washington eventc, I was making the rounds of the departments, establishing,^ news r e 1 a t 'i o n- ships with the holders of the various portfolios. In due sea- 'son, Secretary Mellon's continuation in office having been announced, I thot I ought to look in and refresh my recollactions of him. Accordingly, I applied to his Many at Outlook Meeting. DAVENPORT, Feb. 17. (UP) -Approximately 250 farmers from surrounding territory were here today for a farm outlook meeting. Federal and state expertS'Were here to address the group, which will bo primarily concerned with the future of the farm products markets. Clerk Gets 10 Years. LE MARS, Feb. 17. (#)--J. A.

House Passes Haugen Bill. WASHINGTON, Feb. 16. IIP}--The house today passed and sent to the senate bridge bills which included the Haugen bill to evtend the time for completing the bridge over the Mississippi near Lansing, Iowa. ANDREW MELLON chief assistant, John'Kieley, for an audience. "All right," said Kieley, "here are two or three of the newspaper boys waiting to see him now. Go ahead with the rest of them." And in we went, without further formality. * * * THE venerable multi-millionaire ·1 was sitting at his desk, smok- icg a cigaret and looking as subdued and neutral as usual. There appeared to be no information of consequence to give out, and the affair passed off with half a dozen commonplace questions and answers. It was as we started to file out that the secretary raised a detaining hand, with the air of a man who has struck by an unimportant, afterthot, and we paused inquiringly. "You m-m-raight say," he observed indifferently (he stutters a little), "that I th-th-think this is a g-g-good 't-t-time to b-b-buy b-b- bonds." , * * * · THAT was all there was to it. 1 We newspaper chaps consulted outside for a minute, as to whether the bond suggestion ·amounted to anything.'We decided in the negative. A coupe of the others did include it in their "stories" but only perfunctorily. For myself, I disregarded it entirely, not having been looking for news, anyway, but merely for a "personality" impression. Not knowing the least thing about stocks and bonds, either one, the hint meant nothing in my young life. In fact,, hardly anyone paid a bit of attention to It--only, as I subsequently learned, the merest handful of singularly perspicacious individuals. * * * I CHANCED to meet one of them at the club not long ago--a friend of mine who has a little money--not much, as fortunes count nowadays, but a quarter of a million, maybe. Altho quite active In the markel 'during the early boom period, his astuteness in getting out of it unscathed has often been remarked on He was telling me about it. "Perhaps you remember," he sait (not knowing, of course, anything o my call on the treasury secretary) "that IS months or so ago Andy Mellon advised everybody to bu bonds. Somehow I got a notion tha he meant to say, not so much tha bonds were especially'promislng, bu that he didn't think a great deal o stocks any longer. So 1 closed ou right away. A man who isn't wid awake to auch inklings has no bus' ness playing the market." And, at these words, did I, indeed recollect that remark that Secretar Mellon stuttered? Migosh! it was a if a brick house had fallen on me.
