CARPENTER, KWSC STATE COLLEGE OF WASHINGTON Pullman, Washington AT LARGE: CHARLES A. CULVER, KFM X CARLETON COLLEGE TO MEMBERS of THE ASSOCIATION OF COLLEGE AND UNIVERSITY BROADCASTING STATIONS . (and a special request mailing list) Many encouraging communications are being received daily at this office. In the past six or eight weeks a nation-wide awakening has taken place among colleges and universities owning and operating broadcasting stations. One of the most encour¬ aging communications received is from the State College of Washington, Pullman, Washington. Mr. Frank F. Nalder, Chairman of the Faculty Committee on Radio and Director of Station KWSC, the educational station using 2,000 watts during daylight hours and 1,000 watts during evening hours, sends this very interesting letter: "During the past few weeks we have received several bulletins from you as Executive Secretary of Association of College and University Broadcasting Stations. Specifically, these are dated January 29, February 6, 11, 18, and 24. Also, there were two undated special rush bulletins.

Also, not only as President of this College, but as President of the American Association of Land Grant Colleges, he exerts himself by every possible connection to advance the cause of educational radio broadcasting. "Furthermore, we have the cordial support of every member of the congressional delegations of 'Washington and Idaho, and at least the sympathetic consideration of the delegation from Oregon. The strategic place of KWSC in educational broad¬ casting in the Northwest is well recognized. Yesterday after our conference, 1 resident Holland wrote letters to several of the most influential men in Congress, including Senators Dill and Couzens, urging favorable consideration of measures
