Classroom Lectures to Take Air Over Short Waves as Last Year

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

International broadcasting of classroom lectures will be continued by the University this fall because of the success of the experimental classroom broadcasts undertaken during the spring, officials have announced.

The broadcasting will again be done by the non-commercial shortwave station W1XAL of Boston, which is entirely devoted to educational and cultural programs and which is financed by private donations and a grant from the Rockefeller Foundation.

Harvard made its first radio venture a year ago when W1XAL broadcast the Tercentenary meetings. The public response was so favorable that the university next arranged with W1XAL for the broadcasting of more than twenty classroom lectures and several concerts.
