Something new has been added. That something new is
exciting, it is challenging, it is revolutionary. This new ele
ment will have to be reckoned with in all deliberations of
American educators from now on. I refer, of course, to the
reservation by the Federal Communications Commission of
the 242 channel television assignments for the exclusive use
of non-commercial, educational stations. This reservation is
part of the Commission's blueprint forv America's new im-
proved, and expanded national system of television.
This new system provides assignments for the building
ei.two thousand stations. It makes it possible to place tele
vision within reach of every household. This expansion was
achieved by adding seventy channels of the ultra high fre
quency band to the twelve very, high frequency-channels
now in use. .
Now the blueprint of this system has been issued. Ap
plicants may now file applications for station construction
permits, and after July 1 the Commission will begin process
ing these applications. We expect to have more than a thou
sand applications on hand by that time. What we are con
sidering here is not commercial television but non-commercial
television. Note I say, 'non-commercial educational tele
vision,5 jbecause-America is going to have, in fact already
has, education by television. Some of the education by tele
vision hat goes out on the air by commercial stations is of
high orjier; some of it is not, and in some cases, according to
some responsible observers, the education may even be of a
harmful nature especially for the young.
Is there a need for non-commercial educational televi
sion? I can assure you that it is no light matter for the Fed
eral Communications Commission to reserve such a large
portion of this public domain of the radio spectrum for edu
cation. Many of our American leading educators organized
this energetic, systematic campaign. But whether or not the
commission's action will ultimately prove to have been a wise
one will be determined by you educators. The Commission
having done what it conceives to have been its duty now
turns to you.
This is American education's year of decision. What you
do this year may" determine for. a long, long time, perhaps
for generations, the role of education in television. The time
to act is now. Time began to run out the minute this report
was issued by the Commission on Monday, April 14, 1952. I
fear that you may find this year of grace the shortest year
ef your lives. If television does not have No. 1 priority on
your agenda' from now oh, then the end of this fateful year
may see educational television a lost cause. What a tragedy
this would be; what- a tragedy for education; what a tragedy

Take A Bow, UNC
(Here are some thoughts on the University from a stu
dent who has been here just two weeks.)
As a transfer student from a neighboring institution, your
writer has had a chance to compare at first hand modes of
living, general character traits and mutual feeling here at
U.N.C., with similar aspects of his former alma mater.
"After what I consider a careful and non-partisan analysis
of the situation, I am fully convinced that the University has
the most school spirit of any college in this area. There is
a general feeling of goodwill among Carolina students and
a genuine desire to be of service among the faculty and ad
ministration which I have not seen elsewhere. You 'have
created here a pleasant haven for refugees from less. fortu
nate schools. Everyone of you has a role to play in maintain
ing such a spirit. Let's have more of this "Hi neighbor" at
titude You're making friends that way!
