Station WLBW. ; , Every Sunday evening the Grigsby Grunow Com-.pan'y, manufacturers of Majestic Electric Radios. sends you a wonderful program over the-Columbia Broadcasting System and our radio station WLBW. This program features the world's most famous stage, screen, and operatic stars. - TED HUSIXG If it were necessary to give a de scription of Ted Husing in a few words, the phrase "athletic announcer" might be the first to arise in one's mind. This, however, would possibly lead to a misapprehension. Ted Husing is not an announcer of athletics alone, nor is he the man to whose directions for daily dozens many brave souls shiver aud labor in those early morning hours when the sun has not yet really justified its existence. The real meaaing of the phrase is merely that Ted Husing has already risen to stardom in two fields, athletics an J radio announcing. The second has almost superseded the first, and his talents in this latter field are used for the benefit of the Columbia Broadcasting System.- Out of 610 applications for the position of announcer at station WJZ, Hosing was one to be selected, joining the company of the famous "Four Horsemen of the Air", the foremost group of radio announcers ever to be heard from one station, Norman Brokenshire, J. Lewis Reid, Milton J. Gross and Herbert B. Glover, the latter now News Manager of the Columbia Broadcasting System. , Ted Husing's rise to the front ranks of radio was rapid, for in less than six months he was brought to Washington to announce the chain broadcasts for WRC. Here he was kept busy, for, in one day alone, he introduced the President on the occasion of the laying of the cornerstone of the National Press Club, introduced hint again from the Pan American . Building where the Congress of Journalists was in session and announced the U. S. Marine Band and a speech by Vice President Dawes. In the early Fall Ted made a hurried trip to the seat of the Republican Convention in California in order to introduce Hoover to the air when he formally accepted his nomination for President. That same day he left the Coast and rushed to Hot Springs Arkansas to describe Senator Joseph Robinson's speech. Back in New York, How the Grigsby-Grunow Company, makers of Majestic radios, can produce radios-on such a large .scale and at low prices has. been a question frequently asked. A recent factory bulletin explains this as. follows : - "At the factories the alliance of the men and the machine, or,' as the case may be, the girl and the machine, has produced Its full measure of efficiency. Automatic appliances, the keeping of inventories of raw . and finished materials at a minimum requirement, minute division of labor process, cutting of cost and lost motion at every point where economies will not infringe upon quality such in a general way is the story of the company's plant operations. ' "All the parts of the Majestic radio sets, except the tubes, are made by the company itself, which daily receives eight cars of raw materials steel, copper wire, lumber, etc. and ships 32 cars of assembled products. There is no warehousing either of raw materials or manufactured goods. The company plans to start making its own tubes in the near future. To insure perfect workmanship ten per cent, of the factory force of 6,300 workers are inspectors."
