We use Optical Character Recognition (OCR) during our scanning and processing workflow to make the content of each page searchable. You can view the automatically generated text below as well as copy and paste individual pieces of text to quote in your own work.

Text recognition is never 100% accurate. Many parts of the scanned page may not be reflected in the OCR text output, including: images, page layout, certain fonts or handwriting.

GOOD-WILL PLUS SERVICE WOSU is setting a pattern which more of us might do well to follow. As the only institution of higher learning in the state which possesses educational broadcasting facilities, it is sharing what it has with its colleagues in the field. In a program "College Cavalcade" twenty-one institutions are cooperating to tell this story. All colleges in the state were invited to participate. The format will be a brief round-up of the week's top news from as many colleges as can be covered in the weekly 15-minute show. The Ohio State University public relations office gathers the material for the broadcast and aids in publicizing the program throughout the state. The "have-not" institutions-as far as radio is concerned-sometimes feel left out and perhaps a bit jealous of the schools which have their own stations. This is a chance to improve relations and an understanding of the job to be done. After all-no one institution has a monopoly on program talent. PROPAGANDA ANALYSIS From long experience they know how to do it! Spokesmen for the "industry" can concoct potions which make the late Herr Goebbels' efforts look puny. A recent speech on censorship-threats by one of them includes these; "The American tenet-un-American approach-alien outcroppings-bombastic individuals-smugly unconcerned." Why not a few lessons in propaganda recognition-as we had it during the war?
