JJNo_ Ivory Towe r” Plans for the forth coming year stressed basic job of setting up operation and pro¬ gram standards for member stations, "a descent from thq ivory tower" with stress on competition for audiences and public support. A plan for linking NAEB FM and AN stations first by transcription and later by relay network is now under study. NAEB Objectives Basic objective of NAEB station activity for the 50 member stations, located in many key population spots in U.S. is to provide, not long-hair programs for a so-called "class audience" but "special service for the general audience." NAEB maintains one-third of the U.S. is not served with special interest programs, pro¬ poses to fill that gap through member station facilities.
