TV KID]SHOW {Continued from pa^e 35) the last year have heen joining other advertisers in year-round kid show sponsorship. (Much of the money being invested in tv comes from comic books and other print mediaj. But toys are just a part of a widening variety of children's tv accounts. A look at the types now on network and spot confirms this: foods of all kinds, beverages, bicycles, adhesive bandages, hair shampoos, cold remedies, dog food and baby food. It is not surprising that a diversification of products are turning up on children's tv shows. Dog food, for instance, is a natural since pets go with children. As for baby food, the first reaction might be, "If they're old enough to watch tv, they're too old for baby food."

Basically, the point I want to make is that magazines today have the greatest mission of their entire history, and they are muffing the ball. Americans, generally, are more moved than ever before bv a torch held over the horizon than by being told they are falling apart. America can either go ahead in thought, in ideals, in culture, or can disintegrate in its own fat. It is the mission of magazines to lead the way." ^ owt^ news \s HOTieeT Hottest news in WBT's area is the success of WBT's news programs.
