Page Six (Section TwoJ 1.. -J New Talent Visitors Get Full View Of Controls- Is Discovered Arizona Republic, Phoenix, Friday MonungJeHruary 21,1941 Teleph one Few organizations in the South- j vest have developed as much out-! standing talent as KTAR, in the bfc-l lie' of station officials. j The KTAR Choral Symphony of; 40 voices, organized two yoars ago end directed by Paul Giroux of the KTAR program department staff, is] an outstanding example of the type of service the station has rendered from a talent point of view. This choral organization is composed of the younger business and professional men and women of the community. Al- thoueli its purpose is purely cultural, the KTAK Choral Symphony has become a very popular radio .cature. Intense interest is shown by its member- fillip, proof that the symphony will continue to grow and be an outsta nding influence through KTAK. One of Arizona's most popular dance orchestras, Lloyd Blair and His Band, originated 1 in the studios of KTAR. This eight-piece organization first was strictly a studio band, but in recent months it has become a favorite orchestra among dancers of, this entire area. j Consequently, from a routine j KTAR studio schedule, the operations of Lloyd- Blair and His Band have been expanded to represent ''the best in dance music" in practically all of the favorite dancing rendezvous known to the Valley ol the Sun, according to KTAR officials. The Phoenician String Ensemble directed by Ellsworth Stryker is another outstanding example of the exceptional opportunity that has been offered to potentially fine talent through KTAR. This unusually i fine group, originally organized by KTAK, forms the nucleus of the music being used by Arizona's famous Arizona Biltmore Hotel. , The Frontier Cowboys; Joanne Roberts, accordionist; Tony Corral and his Royal Castillians; the KTAR-Phoenix Little Theater Players, directed by Milton Sachs; Adeline Beitman, juvenile singing star; Lillian Pettijohn and Mina Hess, sopranos; the Clerk of Oxford, outstanding book reviewer, and many other popular personalities and organizations make up the always-in- demand KTAR artists staff. Sirloin steak is so called, legend says, because King James II enjoyed loin of beef so much he dubbed it "Sir Loin." o The Druids, priests of the Celts of Gaul and Britain, frequently offered up human sacrifice, the victims usually being prisoners of war.

"WRECK ON DELIVERANCE" •- EVERY FRIOAY WGHlf^' TONIGHT 7:30 'The Lone Ranger' KTARrKVOA" ' Sponsored BjvHOLSUM For the seventh consecutive faster Ihe Shrine of the Ages, the Grand Canyon of Arizona, will be the originating point of an Easter sunrise sen-ice broadcast which will be heard throughout the nation. On April 13 the National Broadcasting Company again will depend" on KTAU to produce the nation's most outstanding Easter message. Since 1935 KTAR has handled these annual broadcasts with nationally publicized distinction. Originally the idea was that of the Rev. Dr. Bertrand R. Cocks, executive secretary of the Episcopal Missionary District of Arizona. Under the energetic guidance of the Rev. Dr. Cocks many almost insurmountable difficulties were overcome and the first broadcast finally went on the air. In .succeeding years, thanks to the j continued co-operation of many i agencies, the Grand Canyon Easter Sunrise service series has become an institution. Since the beginning the music has been handled by the now famous a cappella choir of the Arizona State Teachers College at iFlagstaff. Under the faultless di- i rectum of Dr. Eldon A. Ardrey the 'musical portions of the Shrine of the 'Ages broadcasts have risen to an enviable standard of excellence, ehind this participation always ias stood the friendly attitude of r. T. J. Tormey, president of the Flagstaff college. Broadcast In Three Parts From year to year the most outstanding men in the Episcopal ministry have journeyed to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon to have a part in these inspiring broadcasts. Always the service is built around a central theme paralleling in some way the Grand Canyon itself. Each service represents a composite of three parts . . . the music, a five-minute description of the actual sunrise and a sermon- ette. ABC Er NBC Red & Blue Networks TELEPHONE 4-4161 FRIDAY.

The responsibilities of the National Park Service have been many, but not onee< has any request for co-operation ever been denied, KTAR officials said gratefully. . In 1940 the description of the sunrise came from the river's edge at the bottom of the canyon where Bright Angel creek empties into the Colorado. Carrying out this plan, with only five minutes of actual broadcast time involved, meant days of patrol duty on forest service phone lines which hang from virtually inaccessible points to prevent any slightest possibility of line failure. Still, ready hands moved to complete the task and the description came from the bottom of the Grand Canyon without a second's trouble er delay. FRIDAY. FEBRCAKY 21, 1841 A.

Three of the largest transcription libraries known to radio are at the con-.rriand of KTAR program builders at all times. The complete National Broadcasting Company Thesaurus Library heads the list. It offers thousands of selections in every category known to both classical and modern musical literature. Featured are the popular NBC' artists whose names have become as well known to radio as any part of it. Xo Demand Unanswered No demand for music ever goes unanswered at KTAR, because there's always the NBC Thesaurus Library. Of almost equal variety and worth is the well known Standard Transcription Library which also is a KTAR asset. Novel arrangements of thousands of selections are contained in this widely used sen-ice. ' Up and down the scale of good music the Standard Library Service always can be depended on for an unusual treatment of the program builders' choice of music for any type of broadcast. _The newest addition to KTAR's parade of transcribed musical libraries is the brilliantly edited Langworth Library. Plus an almost unlimited catalogue of the best in program music the Langworth Library also contains what is considered the most complete assortment of especially arranged transition—or mood—music ever recorded. The part of the library is invaluable in the production of the dramatic shows that are released from the studios of KTAR. In addition, KTAR is served by the extensive library of Broadcast Music, Inc., which service is supplemented by special releases of the Langworth, Associated and MacGregor Libraries. Hi-la— SinRin r. M. Sam Social Groups Are Assisted Among the many successful local programs that originate in the studios of KTAR should be included the Social Calendar of the Air. This six-times-a-week feature has been a KTAR sen-ice for more than five years. Its purpose is to serve all types of civic organizations, including the churches, schools, fraternal organizations and other similar groups in publicizing the various institutional and philanthropic enterprises conducted by these organizations. The success of the KTAR Social Calendar o: the Air is proved by the tremendous volume of announcement material handled and innum- erab!<> evidences of listener interest. Another local program favorite from KTAR is known as the Poetry Exchange. This novel featu.;, presented five afternoons each week, provides a ready exchange lor lovers of poetry. Poems read during these broadcasts are available to those who wish to write for them, the suggestion being that when requesting a poem that has been read that another poem be sent in in exchange for thn one for which the writer is asking. The feature is now completing its second year as a KTAR series and Rives promise of continuing indefinitely, KTAR officials commented. The Job Finder is another notable KTAR feature. These broadcasts are written and produced by John F. Kinerk, representative ' of the professional and commercial department of the Arizona State Employment Service. Heard at 3:30 each Sunday afternoon, the Job Finder makes it his business to interview applicants looking for positions. No week every passes without placing several of the applicants interviewed. Interest To Children "Jolly Mike," the Funny Paper Man, has been a KTAR personality ever since anyone can remember. The Sunday morning broadcasts are awaited with eager anticipation by all lovers of the popular Sunday comic strips. Through the clever j use ot sound effects and many impersonations "Jolly Mike" keeps tils Sunday morning half-hours sparking with fresh interest. "Meeting the airliners" is another KTAR feature with considerable appeal, station officials believe. Ones each week KTAR's special events department makes a trip to Phoenix Sky Harbor where passengers of one eastbound plane and one westbound plane are interviewed. From week to week many famous names and voices are brought to KTAR'S microphones by this surprise-packed feature. Arizona's Cavalcade of Builders is a Sunday night broadcast from The bidding: South West North East 14 Pass 24 Pass 44 • P»3» Pass Pass West opened the queen of diamonds, and South indulged in a moment's thought before he played the first card from the dummy. Was there any chance, he wondered, of getting the king of h earts through without the loss of a heart trick? Certainly if he lost a heart trick, the jig was up. The enemy would , surely shift to clubs and defeat the contract before he could get discards on dummy's hearts. How could he talk them out'of it? In much less time than it takes to report, the solution dawned upon him. He played a low diamond from the dummy, and then casually played a low diamond from his own hand! West naturally assumed that his partner had the ace of diamonds, so continued with the jack of diamonds; and much to everyone's amazement, South turned up with the diamond ace. Declarer next cashed the spade ace and led a small trump to dummy's 10. thus exhaustin^. trumps. The king of diamonds was then led from dummy, and South discarded the king of hearts!

Formerly a narrative broadcast dealing with the fascinating stories of Arizona's past, this program has now been converted into a series of biographical dramas dealing with the lives and experiences of the men and women of tne state who have been responsible for the constant progress of Arizona's Cavalcade of Builders. Book Reviews Offered The Clerk of Oxford is a KTAR personality of unusual distinction, a book reviewer of notable talent. This Wednesday night broadcast constitutes a rendezvous for lovers of books in all sections of Arizona. Chats On Flowers is a KTAR program dedicated to the service of "ardeners throughout the state. Its content is exactly what the name of the feature implies, complete information about gardening plus the answers of an unusual volume of questions sent in by regular listeners. STORIES IN STAMPS By I. S. Klein NEW PANAMA CANAL LOCKS TO MEET AIR-RAID THREAT Congress has appropriated §277,000,000 and work has already started on a new set of locks for the Panama Canal, designed to minimize the danger of closing the waterway by bomb attack. The construction scene on the stamp above, picturing the building of Gatun locks, will be repeated in the six years required for completion of the project. The locks will be built at a distance of one-quarter to one-half mile from the present passages, will be 1,200 feet long, 135 feet wide and 45 feet deep. The locks in use today are 1,000 feet long, 110 feet wide and 40 feet deep. Approach channels will connect the new locks with the main channel. Locks in use today are not only vulnerable from the air, but also are under constant threat of blockade if. the enemy should sink a ship in the locks during transit. Constant watch is maintained on all ships, and U. S. officials are in charge of bridge and engine rooms while vessels pass through the 40- mile life line of the United States. next lead from the dummy was the queen of hearts, and East was helpless. Whether he covered with his ace or played a low heart. South was sure to get two club discards.

Bedtime Stories By THORNTON W- BURGESS Farmer Brown's Boy Has A Glad Surprise Farmer Brown's Boy had an errand whish took him far from lome. He harnessed the horse to a sleigh and started off right after dinner. Now it happened that his errand took him in the direction of :he farm where Bowser the Hound lad been taken such good care of and where Reddy Fox had that very day caught the fat hen. farmer Brown's Boy was not :hinking of Bowser. You see he lad visited most of the farms in that direction looking for. Bowser and had found no trace of him. It was a beautiful day to be sleighing and Farmer Brown's Boy was whistling merrily, for there is nothing he enjoys more than a sleigh ride. He had almost reached the place he had started for when way off across the fields to his right he heard a dog. Now Farmer Brown's Boy enjoys listening to the sound of a hound chasing a fox . There is something about it which stirs the blood. He stopped whistling and he stopped the horse in order that he might listen better. At first that sound was very, very faint, but as Farmer Brown's Boy listened it grew jclearer and clearer. Suddenly Farmer Brown's Boy leaped up excitedly. "That's Bowser!" he cried. "As sure as I live that's good, old Bowser! I would know his voice among a million!" He leaped from the sleigh and tied the horse. Then he climbed over the fence and began to run across the snow-covered fields. He could tell from the sound in what direction Bowser was running. He could tell from the appearance of the country where Reddy Fox would be likely to lead Bo%vser, and he ran for a place which he felt sure Reddy would be likely to pass. Louder and louder sounded the great voice of Bowser, and faster and faster ran Farmer Brown's Boy to reach that place -before Bowser should pass. The louder that great voice sounded the more absolutely certain Farmer Brown's Boy became that it \vas the voice of Bowser, and a great joy filled his heart. At last he reached an old road. He felt certain that Reddy would follow that road. So he hid behind an old stone wall on the edge- of it. He did not have long to wait. A red form running swiftly appeared around a turn in the old road. Then it stopped and stood perfectly still. Of course it was Reddy Fox. He was listening to make sure just how far behind him Bowser was. He listened for only a moment, then started on swiftly as before. Right down the road past Farmer Brown's Boy Reddy ran and never once suspected he was being watched. A few minutes later another form appeared around the turn in the road. It was Bowser. Yes, sir, it was bowser. With a glad Amiu isemen| Today 1 DRIVE-IX _ "The WesfJ^I and "Over the Moon." estn *t"| FOX—"Buck Private" «„«, » Abbott and Lou Costello 41 **• kansas Judge."
