Bureau Of Audio Visual Instruction
'Least Noticed Yet Most Diversified'
By JULIE MARR
One of the frast noticed yet
most diversified departments of
the University's extension service
is the bureau of audio visual in
struction. As simple as this department
appears, it is a complex organi
zation, which a tour through the
basement of the Architectural
building will show any interested
student. One of the major parts
'of the audio visual department is
the film library, contqining 400
motion pictures, 400 2x2 slides, 900
film strips and 200 records. Along
with this are the tapes for teach
ing, the play loan library and the
University produced films. Anoth
er activity is . the department's
co-sponsorship of the Audubon
Screen tours, the American Film
Trilogy which will appear on campus.
world with a group of ten college
musicians known as the Banjazz-
Born 54 years ago in Tyrone,
Pa., Waring began his musical
career as leader of a local Drum
and Bugle Corps. This first "band"
played at local parties and school
functions. From this beginning,
The Pennsylvanians were indirect
Tickets for the University pre
sentation of the Waring show have
re-opened at both the City and
Ag Unions. A specially priced sec
tion for students is offered with
seats selling for $1.50. The per
formance will begin at 7:30 p.m.
Waring's interest in music grew
when he enrolled at Penn State
to study architectural engineering.
While at school his band began to
take weekend jobs at fraternity
At this time Waring's band be
came known as The Banjazztra
because of the predominance of
banjos. This same group of 10
boys, who alternately played 40
instruments were soon known
as The Pennsylvanians, the name
they are known by today.
Band Left School
Waring's college career ended in
his sophomore year when he and
his band left Penn State to play
theater and vaudeville houses.
In the mid-20's the group was
much like the original 10 in that
the members were still musicians
who could clown and double as
singers. Waring's number "Colle
giate" put them into public light
as "collegiate hot stuff."
In 1928 his group played in Par
is, London and Berlin. The Glee
Club and the band gained their ini
tial success on a radio show which
began in 1933.
Since then Waring and the Penn
sylvanians have been touring the
United States and Europe, giving
concerts as well as presenting ra
dio and television shows.

Tachen Islands Figure In Defense
Secretary of State John Foster Dulles said that any moves by Red
China to carry out its professed intention to conquer Formosa would
involve hostilities with the United States.
Dulles also told a news conference that the Tachen Islands, where
Chinese Reds sank a Nationalist China destroyer escort, could possibly
be involved in the defense of Formosa. He did not say outright that
the U.S. 7th Fleet should participate in the defense of the islands.
While the islands are 200 miles from Formosa, they embraced
an early warning system which would detect air raids from the Red
Blow Away That Smoke
Secretary of Agriculture Ezra T. Benson has asked land grant
colleges to help "blow away the smokescreen that farm income de
pends on Washington and that prices are made by bureaucrats."
In a speech for the 6,1th annual convention of the Association of
Land-Grant Colleges and Universities, Benson spelled out four areas
in which the land-grant colleges "have a special opportunity to enlarge
your service to American agriculture."
They are: the farm unit approach, marketing, low-income farms
and public policy.
Benson said that colleges "must not" become politically involved
in farm policy. But he said "surely you can present information
factually and you can explain objectively, the consequences of various
courses of action in larm policies."
