Essex Discusses Television And
Radio In Chapel On Thursday
} Harold Essex, one of the founders of the Triangle Broadcasting Com-
pany of Winston-Salem and active member of the WSJS radio and
5 television station, spoke in chapel yesterday on the subject of television
'' of television. Originating during
World War II as a practical medium of communication in military
service, television soon became commercialized. The Federal Communi-
imposed a “freeze” on permits for television stations
in 1948 which lasted for three and a half years. At the time of the
freeze, there were 108 television
stations—that number now having
increased to 328, while 224 are still
in production and 402 applications
for new stations are filed in Wash
Mr. Essex alsb discussed the new
improvements of television. He
stated that color TV will soon be
perfected, but will take approxi
mately two or three years to reach
the market for economic as well as
Distinguishing between VHF tele
vision and UHF television, Mr.
Essex said that the first denotes
Very High Frequency and involves
channels 2-13, while the second is
Ultra High Frequency and is con
tained in channels 15-82. As there
is no difference in the programs of
these two systems, adaptions are
now being made to suit receiving
sets to both types of frequency.
At present, said Mr. Essex, edu
cational television is not very
feasible because of its expense.
Developments are being made in
this field, however, by such as the
Chapel Hill educational station
which will open soon for a trial
period of two years.
On the subject of vocational op
portunities, Mr. Essex spoke of
the many openings in all aspects
of television, due to its infancy and
the experiniental state in which it

Salemites Study, Get Rings,
And Travel OverThanksgiving
.. By Mary McNeely Rodgers
, Diamond rings, fraternity pins,
first plane rides, football games,
and some study tell the tale of
Salemites’ Thanksgiving as fresh-
nien, sophomores, juniors, and sen
iors scattered from Alabama to
New York and from Chesapeake
Bay to Indiana.
Mary Anne Hood and Ruth Lott
spent their vacation in New York,
with the Army-Navy game in Phila
delphia being the big event. Ann
Merritt also was in New York for
a camp reunion. To add to'Twinkie
De Mott’s excitement over her first
plane ride, she got a diamond to

Nlpe, a former Salemit?, in New
Jersey. Anne Miles went to An
napolis for the Army-Navy game.
Not all girls were attracted by
the big city—hunting, home, and
house parties claimed many Salem-
•tes. “I want to go where the wild
geese go” was Mr. Campbell’s
theme, as he hunted during his
vacation from amoebas and para-
tnecuim. Jody Meilicke made* the
*ong trip home to Bethlehem, Pa.
A Sigma Chi frat pin was the high
light of Eleanor Walton’s vacation.
Joan Shope spent Thanksgiving
at a hpuse party on Chesapeake
Bay. Carol Campbell will soon be
singing “Dixie” with a strong
Southern accent. She got plenty
of practice during her vacation with
Martha Dunlap in Rock Hill.
The foreign students scattered in
all directions. Helle Falk went to
Lenoir with Diane Huntley; Mari
anne Lederer went to Goldsboro
with Peggy Hawkins; and Helen
Fung stayed in Winston-Salem
with Jean Miller.
Four days wasn’t enough vaca
tion for Sandy Whitlock, so she
left Sunday to go to her grand
parents’ 50th wedding anniversary
celebration in Indiana.
“I’m Alabama bound” was Alice
Carter’s, Faye and Peggy Roberts’
song as they headed home. Faye
and Peggy were in their sister’s
wedding during the holidays. Alice
went to the Alabama-Auburn game.
Believe it or not, Alice McNeely
and Jean Edwards came back to
Salem on Saturday to study.

“Our New Victory' for Better
Schools in North Carolina” was
the topic discussed by Mr. Sanford
Martin in chajlel last Tuesday.
Mr. Martin, a native North Caro
linian and graduate of Wake For

Journal-Sentinal. He has ' been
quite active in state affairs, parti
cularly in the realm of education.
Mr. Martin has been chairman of
the building committee of the North
Carolina Education Association.
After offering several antecdotes,
Mr. Martin told of the latest vic

was only the most recent develop- musical partnership at the
ment in the steady progress of this
state’s educational facilities which
was begun 50 years ago by Charles
B. Aycock, who was at that time
Governor of North Carolina. With
his policy that “the state must edu
cate to protect itself in a demo
cracy,” Aycock began the revolu
tionary process which turned North
Carolina schools from one-room log
buildings run by the counties on a
minimum of money into the mo
dern state system of educational
institutions of today.
Mr. Martin also made mention
of the importance of a two hundred"'
million dollar bond issue passed
in 1949 for the building of roads
in parts of the state. This further
developed Aycock’s policy of:
“Build schools and the people will
build roads to them.”
In a discussion of steps to be
taken in the future for educational
betterment, Mr. Martin said that
the future teachers should progress
toward attaining better schools and
facilities by consolidation of small
high schools to promote more equal
educational opportunities, by de
creasing the teacher load, by bring
ing more junior colleges to the
people or by developing a 14-year
high school program, and by mak
ing the teaching profession more
attractive so as to alleviate the
present teacher shortage.
In closing, Mr. Martin com
mented on the fact that education
is the state’s biggest business, and
on the necessity of producing a
real challenge for dedicated teach
ers to teach the American way of
life in order to protect the state
and the country.
