-3- BROADCASTING AROUND THE WORLD (Excerpted from the DuMont Dispatch, CBC Times and Other Sources) The U. S. Television industry in January took a step to¬ ward achieving standardization on a much-discussed, but still developmental shallow TV picture tube when a committee of the Radio-Electronic-Television Manufacturers Association decided to omit from future consideration a projected 120-degree de¬ flection tube. Instead, it was decided to concentrate on a proposed 110-degree deflection tube with a small tube neck. Most tubes being made today are 90-degree tubes. In the indus¬ try^ earlier days, 70-degree tubes were standard. In Chicago, experimental work in teaching by television was given another vote of approval when the public schools appropriated a $40,000 budget for 1956. Programs will go out over Chicago educational station WTTW, at special hours with study programs, by top science and mathematics teachers, for high school students. ***** Prominent Germans and Americans paid tribute to the U.S. Information Service station RIAS — Radio in the American Sector — on the occasion of its 10th anniversary, February 5. The station, at which Dr. Harry J. Skornia, NAEB Executive Director, was a consultant in 1948-1949; has proved a potent weapon for the West in broadcasting on eight frequencies to an audience estimated at several million. *****
