Crimson Network Is Scheduled to Return to Air on September 24

Summer Experiments Planned to Develop Stronger Reception


The Executive Board of the Crimson Network announced last night that the Network will return to the air with the opening of the academic year next fall. The first broadcast has been tentatively set for the evening of September 24.

The technical staff under the direction of Charles Oliphant, Technical Director and Gordon P. McCouch, Technical Engineer and designer of the sending apparatus, will experiment this summer with new methods of broadcasting.

The technical staff has definitely given up the plan of continuing to broadcast by means of the University heating pipes. In order to receive the best reception it may be found necessary to string wires throughout the University buildings, a method used by other collegiate radio stations.

Just which method of stringing the wires is best suited to conditions at Harvard, will be determined by extensive research and experimentation this summer. "Every room should have perfect reception by next fail," William Tyng '41, Chairman of the Network, stated.

A stable organization will also be established by next fail so that the Network will be on a firm footing. Besides Tyng as Chairman and Oliphant as Technical Director, Lawrence Lader '41 will be Program Director, and Stanley C. Beren '41, Production Director, thereby filling out the Executive Board. Other officers will be William Braden '41, Assistant in the Program Department, and Charles Davis '41, Program Engineer, and Gordon McCouch '41, Technical Engineer.

Regular competitions for Juniors and Sophomores will be conducted with the opening of the college year. Although the details of the competitions have not yet been worked out, the general plan is to give each competitor a chance to show his talents in all the phases of radio and program production.
