network members. After doing some figuring, I discovered that a full-time network member paying the Class A rate is actually paying $1.70 per hour for network shows over a year. Class B members pay about $1.06 an hour, while the Class C stations pay $.64 an hour. To those not yet partaking of network service: these figures demonstrate that you simply cannot af¬ ford to pass up network service. If you have finan¬ cial problems, remember that you don’t pay the full fee until your third year of network membership; the first year you pay one-half, the second year, three- fourths, then the full fee. Thus, you can arrange to slide the network fee into your budget over a three- year span. It’s not too late for non-network members to order service in time for broadcast beginning in October. If you are interested, please write me; I’ll send you an offering and give you all details relative to your network membership. This fourth quarter offering, by the way, is one of our best. Present network members should bear in mind that now is the time of the year when we really need those tape returns. We have begun duplication of the in-school offering which ties up many, many tapes over the following weeks; thus, we need tapes from you in order to keep the regular offering going on schedule. Also, we could use some submissions, particularly in the 15-minute time segment. I am sure that many stations are beginning the fall season with new shows. If you have any series—no matter what the time— which you feel would make good network material, please submit them. If you don’t have submission forms, I’ll be pleased to send some to you. FULBRI0HT COMMITTEE ANNOUNCES CHANGE IN FRENCH PROGRAM The Committee on International Exchange of Per¬ sons of the Conference Board of Associated Research Councils announces new specifications on the research appointment in radio-television offered under the 1959-1960 Fulbright program in France. As stated in these new specifications, the Director of Cultural Activities of the French Radio and TV system would particularly like a candidate with experience in the field of commercial, rather than educational broadcasting. Most desirable is a person with knowledge of the technical problems of large- scale broadcasting and of the production of programs, serious or otherwise, for popular consumption. This is a change from the former French program, which designated research in the field of educational radio and TV. Educational broadcasters who have had experience in commercial radio and TV would, of course, be qualified, and are still urged to apply. RCA BECOMES NAEB INDUSTRIAL ASSOCIATE Radio Corporation of America recently was named the second NAEB Industrial Associate member, par¬ ticipating in the educational broadcasting movement in the newly provided membership classification for manufacturing and industrial organizations. RCA representative L. L. Lewis, educational ad¬ ministrator, Industrial Electronic Products, was pre¬ sented with a certificate acknowledging the corpora¬ tion’s support. The first Industrial Associate was Motorola, Inc., which inaugurated the new NAEB membership classi¬ fication last May.
