Rebroadcast of Roosevelt’s
Message Hailed by McReynolds
Wonderful Opportunity to Get Ameri
can Views Direct to Foreign
People, He Says.
Rebroadcast today, to millions of
foreign listeners in their native
tongues of parts of President Roose
velt’s message to Congress marked
the high point of a program planned
to offset propaganda from foreign
government radio stations with broad
casts carrying the American point of
view over the heads of censors to the
far corners of the world.
Important parts of the President’s
speech, including those expressing
faith that democracy would replace
dictatorship governments and calling
for a strong national defense pro
gram, were translated and broadcast
in six languages to Europe and South
America by the National Broadcasting
Co. today.
N. B. C. officials said this record
breaking service was undertaken vol
untarily by its international division,
which carries on a daily program of
19 short-wave broadcasts in six lan
guages of news comment slanted to
emphasize the "American point of
view’.”
McReynolds Hails Program.
The program was hailed today as
of great value in promoting demo
cratic policies of this Government by
Chairman Sam D. McReynolds of
the House Foreign Affairs Commit
tee, who in a significant speech last
week urged strong action by the
United States to uphold its rights
and the sanctity of treaties in the |
Far East.
"I think it is wonderful for this
opportunity to be given to get our
Ideas directly to the people in other
parts of the world, especially at this
trying time, when other nations are
using every means possible to put
their propaganda before the world,”
Mr. McReynolds said.
An N. B. C. spokesman said the
broadcasting company considered its
foreign language broadcasts a “patri
otic duty.” He emphasized that the
company was solely responsible for
initiating the program and that it
had not been suggested by Govern
ment officials.
To Offset Foreign Propaganda.
Chief purpose of the program, it
was explained, is to offset the foreign
propaganda contained in news broad
casts from government - controlled
radio stations from other countries,
particularly thos ruled by dictators.
Expense of the broadcasts is borne
•olely by the broadcasting companies
at present, with the idea that they
might pave the way for commercial
short-wave broadcasts in the future.
The routine broadcasts are com
posed chiefly of news items, selected
to give a constructive view point of
American life—with news about
gangster activities and murders
"played down” — supplemented by
special items of foreign interest pre
pared with the co-operation of the
foreign trade division of the Com
merce Department and the State De
partment.
Rebroadcast of parts of President
Roosevelt’s message of yesterday was
in addition to the routine news broad
casts, which contained comment on
the message.
When the President spoke to Con
gress yesterday his words went out
not only over the three major Ameri
can networks but directly to all of
Europe by short wave from the N. B.
C. short-wave station, W3XAL, at
Boundbrook, N. J. An electrical
transcription was broadcast later, once
directed to South and Central Amer
ica and again to the Orient, Aus
tralia and New Zealand.
Following through today, the parts
of the President’s speech touching on
foreign affairs were translated into
German. French, Italian, Spanish and
Portuguese and broadcast again, so
people in other parts of the world
could hear the significant words in
their own tongues.
