University of-the ;ir Brings SEATTLE C00ahure-Into Homes of the Maritime Provinces C HRISTMAS for the people• of Maritime Provinces--Nova Sco-, tin, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Islard-=is always ' a happy and eventful season. The majority of the people are Catholic and proud- of it. And the vast majority of them live in rural areas. Apart from their home festivities and are these not the real core of any Catholic celebration ?--and after hearing Midnight Mass, the people of the Mari time Provinces will ;be provided with unique Catholic radio programs emanat- ing from Nova Scotia's "University of the Air" at Antigonish. • - Antigonish is the home of St. Francis Xavier University, whose Extension De- partment, under the pioneering leadership of Dr. Coadyl is known throughout the length and breadth of America.-It is also the home of Station CJFX which in cooperation with the University , presents through its Education Division a year- round program of-broadcasts that might well be the envy of many other stations. Independent and Cooperative Radio Station: CJFX 'is a corporation owned by more than 300 shareholders, no one of which-may own more than five shares. Thus, its truly independent char- acter and the cooperative spirit of the programs are assured.

EUSTACE the Catholic viewpoint-is what the UnI- versity itself is doing in-radio education with the assistance and cooperation of Station-CJFX.-It may suggest what" other Catholic Universities can d in va-. rious parts of America, where-local sta- tions are receptiv e to educational pro- grams. At Christmas, •this year, the Radio League of the Diocese of A:ntigo.nish will produce over the air a dramatization of: the Christmas Story adapted from the- Gospels• Students of the university and girls from Mount St. Bernard- the uni versity's residence college for women -- will provide the Annual Christmas Con- cert regularly broadcast by remote con- trol over Station CJFX. All of God's Children Intelligent Throughout the year the University of the Air produces some fine educational programs, under the directorship of the Rev. GeorgeL. Kane. Father Kane is a dynamo of inspiration in connection with educational programs . which Station CJFX is only too pleased to have. The majority of listeners are farmers, agri- cultural workers, miners and artisans. But the University of the Air presupposes that significant Catholic doctrine of the human person; namely, that God has cre- ated all men morally equal, that all are -.His children, and all equally capable of absorbing intelligent and interesting knowledge if given the chance. Conse- quently the educational programs of the University of the Air are not only stur- dily Catholic in essence, but also of high quality. Father Kane himself prepares a se- ries of programs which are proving very popular, called "Poetry for the People." Subtitle of some of his broadcasts are "Poetry Is for Everybody," 'he Poet Out in the Open," "Past, Present, and Future," and "The Fall of the Year." Plain, ordinary people enjoy hearing about poetry and take a lively interest in these programs. Father Kane plans another series: "The Words We Use." Very popular broadcasts about music are given by Professor John Lee, F.R.C.O. "Introducing the Masterworks." This se- lies consists of a brief commentary giv-- en by Professor Lee on a work which he himself plays or produces from records. Typical musical programs, given over Sta- "tion CJFX and enjoyed by Nova Scotia's farmers and miners are selections from Tchaikowsky'$ Symphony No. 5; Schu- mann's .Piano Concerto; "Royal Music Suite ' by Handel, and "Symphonie Fan- tastique," by Rernox. A popular feature of Station CJFX, "Life in These Maritimes," by the Rev. Dr. Hugh MacPherson, deals with such down-to-earth topics as poultry, market- ing and pastures. The university pro° grams are broadcast only eight aonths of. the year, but the station also has a National Farm Radio Forum, a Citizens Forum and a program on books. Cash Dividends Too Station CJEX carries, of course, a full commercial program, with many nation- wide features on its hook-up. And for sceptics, who may not believe that care- fully selected, high quality educational broadcasts pay, the fact is that Station CJFX pays dividends to its shareholders and is a going Concern.- In operation for onl a little over four years, the Station's power has been increased to 5,000 watts, and programs have been heard as far away as England, Greenland and Iowa. The University of the Air indicates what can be done by a live Catholic insti- tution. The educational programs are in- tei-polated with the Station's regular COma mercial and newscast programs. There is a happy and close cooperation between the Station and the University's Director of Educational Broadcasts. And the type of programs which the University spon- sors is in accord with the principles of its fine extension work which has brought such happiness and confidence to so many of Nova Scotia's rural popu- -:CTZE; :" .'  ...,,. -    ..:  , .., '• SEASON'S GREETINGS • PACIFIC DOOR & MANUFACTURING CO. 3800 Seventh Ave. So.
