JUESDAY MORNING. U.S.C. TO HAVE RADIO COLLEGE , ; Spring Quarter to Open Soon Over Station KEJK Present Arrangement With KHJ Not Affected Pioneer Activity Originated in Pittsburgh BY DR. RALPH L. POWER The continued application of edu cational concepts, and their liaison with broadcast acttvity gets another boost with the announcement yes terday that the University of South' California has made arrange. ments to form a division of radio Prtncatinn in conjunction with Bpverlv Hills. ThP statement savs that the "spring quarter for the new work will open on Marcn 10, dhh. wim two types oi courses. ' INFORMAL WORK, TOO 'The first, or Informal, division of the radio lectures will not be for credit, nor will any attempt be made to correlate them with actual college Instruction. Thev ought to serve, however, as ah introduction to a further study of the various subjects by the listeners. The lectures will consist of several series, including three to six tvlkt in each. The university curricula will suggest the topics and the teaching staff will assist. FORMAL COURSES INCLUDED The second division is listed as "radio lecture - correspondence-conference courses," In which university credit may be earned. While the informal radio lectures rlU be without fees, an enrollment charge will be made for the formal instruction. Those who enroll must observe certain registration formalities of entrance requirements. They will be availed with textbooks, reading lists outside study and course outlin Brief correspondence quizzes will be given, together with a supervised examination at the close of each course. EXAMINATIONS REQUIRED For these courses there will be twelve half - hour lectures over KEJK, one a week. No definite announcement however, has been made as to the specific hours tor the radio instruction. Those who enroll for credit will also be required to hold one consultation each quarter with the Instructor at the university. "Credit earned will be accepted In partial fulfillment of the requirements for certificates and degrees at the University of Southern California."

It is understood that the KEJK arrangement for broadcast of arrangement for broadcast of the the radio lectures will be in addi tion to the present use of KHJ. the von Lee station, by the university. KHJ PROGRAM CONTINUES The Institution already gives a broadcast of its morning chapel exercises over KHJ four times a week, and. in addition, a half-hour lecture period two afternoons weekly, via remote control from the campus and transmitted through KHJ. The University of Pittsburgh has done pioneer . work in connection with courses of this type, and its work is. perhaps, more widely known than any other institution. " SUPPLEMENTS COLLEGES Columbia University several years a?o utilized radio in its extension classes, and the New York City Board of Education as well. The Kansas State Agricultural College was one of the first to give radio courses for farmers.

People are inclined to be lazy. There will be only the onsultation once a quarter, and it will provide almost no contact with the campus and its activities. HELPS ADULT EDUCATION I think it Is safe to predict that no radio college will ever displace any accepted mode of Instruction. Yet it can do an extremely worth u-hiio work as a suDDlement of the campus college, particularly in adult education. . . The -work will be eagerly watched at U.S.C. while in its experimental The radio lectures east have been ixvntinnallv well received, espe cially during the long winter nights. With plenty of places to go to and all kinds of good weather in which to get there, it, of course, remains to be seen how the idea takes in the Southwest. HEALTH TALK AT 4 O'CLOCK At 4 p.m. today Dr. Frank McCoy, whose dally health articles are read in The Times will give his ideas as to "Why Does a Head Ache?" over KHJ. the Don Lee station. He will stress the facts that a headache Is symptomatic evidence of various bodily disorders, and that it is of utmost importance that the disorder be diagnosed and cured rather than that the nervous system be desensitized in order to dull the sensation of pain which is always natures warning. AUSTRALIAN ARRIVES, TO BUY FILMS Theatrical Owner Will Introduce Talkies Far -Off Antipodes in American motion-picture produc- tions in South Australia are the acme of cinema art The far off country "down under" , enjoys the newest end best of Hollywood's efforts, but the "talkies" have not as yet reached there, according to L. Percival, head of a chain of fifteen South Australian theaters, a guest of the Clark HoteL Mr. Percival. here with his wife and daughter on a tour of the country, is combining business with pleasure, and before his return to his Australia home, will have per fected arrangements for the era of talking pictures in that far-off land, he said yesterday. "We of South Australia believed that Americans who visit us were given to braggadocio. They told us of America in such glowing terms that we were rure they were relying on their imagination. But since mv arrival here from Honolulu yes terdav. on my first trip to your country. I have come to believe that, instead of being braggarts, Americans who visit us are entirely too modest. You have a wonderful country here and I am in love with it," Mr. Percival exclaimed.

GAS STAYS AT Efforts to End Price Association Plans Mass Meeting Gasoline prices are scheduled to remain around 11 cents a gallon for the next two days, according to service station operators and officials of major oil companies. Efforts to bring an end of the price war were made yesterday but an agreement could not be reached. Major oil companies made nothere tonight in an enon to siaou move toward raising the wholesale cost and continued to deliver gasoline at 9 -cents a gallon. A large number of service stations sold gas as low as 8Va cents a gallon in connection with an oil change, and some maintained a flat rate of 10 cents a gallon. ' Only a few of the stations held the price at 12 M cents a gallon. Not many neighborhood stations agreed on prices, and. in every section of the city where two or more stations were at the same street location the prices were different Officials of the Superservice Station Association plan a mass meeting this week in an effort to fix a uniform scale of prices. The independent station men have organised with several in-dep3ndent oil producers for their own brand of gasoline, and almost 600 dealers began the sale of this product yesterday morning. The independents say they will be able to meet any price offered by the larger corporations and still make a profit The situation m other parts of the State Is similar to that in Los Angeles. .In San Diego the prices posted are several cents lower than the average in Los Angeles, but a meeting will be held tlVyr' I r-i i att n n no KTI 440 K.. 468.5 M.

BILL SENT TO COUNCIL A bill of $1502.18 for Improvement assessments for Monterey Road and Hardison Way, adjoining the Arroyo Seco parkways, presented by the Securities Corporation to the Park Commission, was referred by that body yesterday to the City Council for payment on the ground that the assessment dates prior to the time the parkways went under junsaic tlon of the park department-. ELEVEN CENTS War Futile Yesterday; Ize the price, it is said DEALERS IN NORTH PLAN TLEA TO LEGISLATURE SAN FRANCISCO. Feb. 25. (Exclusive) Although there was no change here in the gasoline price-cutting situation. East Bay retailers prepared to carry a plea for investigation of the matter to the State Legislature. W. F. Ostrander, attorney for the dealers and spokesman for the garage owners, the two groups recently having joined to the extent of an agreement on prices in the retail field, announced that the two groups are getting together a demand for legislative investigation and will take it to Sacramento as quickly as it Is completed. "We will ask." he said, "that one of the Legislature's present committees, or a new one, be assigned to the investigation. The public is entitled to know what is behind tie gasoline war because the public will have to pay the cost when the gasoline market, retail and wholesale, is stabilized. "If 13 cents, the wholesale price quoted by the companies until the wax' started, was a fair quotation, then the prevailing price of 10 cents is unfair to the public holding oil company securities. If, on the other hand. 10 cents is a fair wholesale price, then during the long period the 15-cent quotation prevailed, the companies have bilked the public of millions of dollars." r WAY CLEAR FOR WORK IN VALLEY Report on Improvement Bond Vote to Council Last Legal Preliminary With the announcement In the City Council yesterday of the re sults of the election last Thursday j in Municipal Improvement District ( No. 61, the last legal step was tAken which was necessary for the , beginning of the largest street-im provement project ever unaeriaKen in the San Fernando Valley.
