Television to Aid Education Show How Nations May Live With Each Other Washington — Radio and television are about to give educa gon a terrific shot in fee JS gfocators say this shot will be the most good—where it will help 10 teach the world's citizens how to get along with each other with iess trouble. At the U. S. office of education here is the way edu- caiors are beginning- to see the "lings to come: 1. Television will become the •lectronic blackboard of the future—even in the little red school- ftouse. The great events of the day Will be brought to the classroom A class of medical students may witness a delicate surgical operation performed miles away. A whole school may see the president address congress. Great Opportunities 2. There are great opportunities for presenting educational courses in the home. Such classes noj only would supplement classroom work but would also offer classes in adult education and specialized courses for the person who has completed his schooling but wants to keep up with developments in his profession. Educators emphasize the possibilities of smoothing human relationships, and relationships between nations, because programs may increase understanding. This is possible because they can reach many mere people than classrooms and can reach' them throughout their lives, keeping them abreast of events and issues. There are 2 ways that radio and television instruction may be popularized. One is for the com IT'S SCHIFF'S Of Course For .

The other is for schools and colleges to operate their own stations. Already dozens of programs suitable for classroom and home work are offered by commercial radio broadcasters. And hundreds of schools use these programs. In addition the federal communications commission has just relaxed its rules for the operation of FM radio stations by schools and colleges. Office of education officials say the important fact about this relaxation of rules is that it means more schools can afford their own FM radio stations. Cost of Station One official estimates it is pos- sible for a school to obtain a sending station for as little as $2,500 for the transmitting equipment and $2,500 for a studio. Facsimile also is carried en the FM channel. Facsimile will reproduce charts, a page of reading material, maps, photographs, musical scores and many other types of educational information in the home. Twenty FM channels have been set aside by the FCC for the use of non - commercial educational stations. This means that as many as 10 educational stations can operate in every area, including large cities. Officials of the office of education say Station WHAS in Louisville, Ky., is making radio history by co-operating with the University jf Louisville In broadcasting the first college course for credit ever offered by a standard oroaocast station. ''Many other commercial stations offer some educational programs. But only 34 standard stations are operated by educational institutions and only 20 non-commercial educational FM stations. Franklin Dunham of the radio section of the office of education says about 200 schools and colleges are planning to apply for FM licenses. Iowa State college at Ames, Iowa, is the only college with a telev lslon station in operation, but at least 5 others are planning to have stations soon. Because of ex- pense, television sending stations may be beyond the reach o* many schools and colleges. But .. nham says it may be possible to set up co-operative centers where a group of educational .institutions would establish radio and television stations and produce educational movies. These programs and pictures would be available to all the educational institutions in the area. • Sells 2,000 Plates Garner —Hancock county Treasurer Roy L.
