Marks "new beginning" ISU radio-TV in own home AMES — Conceived 50 years ago in an electrical engineering laboratory, Iowa State Univer- s i t y broadcasting operations marked a "new beginning" this year when they moved into the first home of their own. v Located at the northwest corner of the campus, Iowa State's new Communications Building is a windowless (for dust control) two-story structure of pre-cast stone-in-concrete panels and brick. It houses 39,000 square feet of usable floor space, about 25 per cent more than the WOI-AM- FM-TV complex had available in the three separate areas it previously occupied. Most important, however, ill WOI operations are now under one roof, for the first time, in a structure tailored specifically to radio and television. WOI-TV had been working out of one very limited studio. It now has two modern, highly versatile studios and no longer must juggle work on long-term projects between its regular in- studio programs. There are two major equipment additions in the new building: A studio lighting system whose 72,000-watt dimming capacity permits coordination of four or five sets in a given production, in either studio, and a video switcher, which permits integration of as many as 18 picture sources in a given production. Other significant improvements include the separation of distinct functional areas, centralization of facilities common to radio and television, provision of a large cold-storage room for recorded materialsfprovision of working quarters for -ISU Extension Information personnel, much-improved recording and stereo transmission facilities, and provision for a closed-circuit instructional television network which ultimately will afford push-button recording and playback of teaching materials at all teaching centers on the campus. First 'milestone in develop. ment of the WOI-AM-FM TV complete was an Iowa State electrical engineers' demonstration of wireless telegraphy at the 1914 Iowa State Fair. Subsequent research in voice transmission put Iowa State station 9YI on the air with farm market reports in October 1921. Six months later, Iowa State was licensed for sunrise-to-sunset broadcast under call letters WOI, and began full programming of instruction, market information and news. It was Iowa's second radio station, one of the nation's first 20. With the advent of FM, Iowa State instituted night-time radio service in 1949. WOI-FM introduced stereophonic transmission experimentally in 1955, and began regular stereo transmission programming last fall. Although »n FCC license freeze delayed Iowa State's en try into television five years, WOI-TV took the air in February 1950 as the world's first educationally owned and operated television outlet, the second sta tion licensed in Iowa and among WOI'S NEW HOME—Iowa State ^uvcisity a television O p new Communications Building at Ames is a window- into use this less two-story structure of brick and pre-cast stone- " in-concrete panels.

Iowa State began pioneering extension education in 1870 and brought a succession of "firsts" in the field to focus in 1906 with organization of Iowa State Extension Services, the nation's first state-sponsored extension program. Radio freed extension education from the limits imposed by .staff, distance and time. Television gave extension education "almost the ultimate" vehicle. WOI—AM can be heard throughout Iowa, WOI-FM covers 25 central Iowa counties and WOI-TV, channel 5, covers half the state. And through WOI . recording services, Iowa State reaches the audiences of many other outlets all across the state and in major population centers throughout the nation. Iowa State radio originated and continues as an independent, noncommercial, state- funded agency. WOI-TV, on the other hand, has never used state funds in its operations, is commercially licensed, and is a basic primary ABC network affiliate. Network affiliation permits the University to place 1 its educational television materials in a full program schedule with mass appeal. WOI-TV's revenue- producing aspects enable the University to purchase the expensive equipment and employ the professional staff requisite to high-grade programming; to provide a training laboratory for studies related to broadcasting media, and to conduct basic research in educational program and audience development.

France, Power rates decreased by New Hampton plant _ NEW HAMPTON — Residcn tial light and power users in New Hampton, beneficiaries of two sizeable reductions in rates over the past two years, had to stand aside in the latest in a program of across the boarc rate decreases under way here In action taken the past week, the board of trustees of the New Hampton municipal light and sower plant gave this decrease to two other groups — the industrial power and large users, and ihe commercial customers. According to board spokesmen, the new reductions, while difficult to pinpoint on a percentage basis, should provide appreciable benefits to both industrial and commercial users. It has been pointed out further thai rates in New Hampton now are on a "realistic basis," n,« ;«, i J?' more ^vorable than those tions. The board feels the new rates will ". . , help New Hamp ton to become a more competi tive town in the search for new State teachers It scholar- A Very Merry Christmas And A Prosperous NEW YEAR FREICHT TRADSIT CO.

The new rates for industrial users, for instance, set a 1.75 cent rate for the first 5,000 KWH and 1.5 cent rate for the next 5,000. Previous to the reduction the rate for tiie first 10,000 KWH averaged out at roughly 3.2 cents. On the other end of the new scale, the rate per KWH for all over 75,000 KWH will be 85/100 cents. The "excess" rate previously was 1.5 cents. Commercial rates also show sharp reductions. The old rate for the first 100 KWH was 7.5 cents. This has been cut to six cents and scales down from there to two cents for all KWH over 10,000. The new reductions, the board explains, are in direct relation to the pattern oE decreasing rates that was inaugurated in 19G2. The first slash was mad( at that time and was an eigh per cent reduction of residentia rates. The following year an other seven per cent was added for residential users, along will a 10 per cent reduction to com mercial users. Additional rate reductions may be worked into future plans, according to reports, if needed to cccp the municipal plant here on a state-wide competitive bas s. Users who arc in a position to benefit from the new reductions are urged by the board to con- act plant superintendent Har)!d Wittenburg for information on how they may best utilize he new rate structure. The three-man New Hampton board of trustees has as its members, John H. Hauth, chairman; A. T. Olson ami Francis A. Uglum.
