College WOSU, Ohio State University V'KAR, Michigan State College WHCU, Cornell University WOI, Iowa State College Hull presented the committee with letters from the Iowa Farm.‘Bureau Federation and the Farmers Grain Dealers Association to support his claim there is.a demand for night broadcasts by WOI, The Iowa State College station now is limited to daytime operation because Station KFI of Los Angeles, California, holes clear channel rights to the wave length used by WOI, Earlier, James G. Patton, president of the National Farmers Union,.said that agri' cultural colleges should be permitted to have better radio facilities, and farm¬ ers better radio service. C alled "Scandal " "One of the scandals of our day," he said, "is the fact that our great agricultur¬ al colleges cannot broadcast the information which they have to the farmer at times when the farmers wish to listen. "I suggest that the FCC work out a pattern so that every state or region has a college or nonprofit station to which all farmers can listen day and night." Hull said that N-A-E-B takes the position that college and university stations should be permitted to meet the "needs and wants" of their listeners at night as well as during the day. He added: "The grant of superpower to the.present. 1-A clear channel licensees would not only prevent college and university stations from securing nighttime broadcast hours which are so essential in reach the largest audience, but would also have the effect of seriously curtailing the services to the present radio listening audience during the day." -*-** -*** RADIO COUNCIL WINDS UP SUCCESSFUL YEAR One of the country’s most successful radio councils celebrated another year of fruitful activity at its annual spring banquet Monday, April 12,.
