Quotas Over 1943

Stage; No Accounting Yet Made
Generosity—giving to others less fortunate—long has
been typical of the American—as typical as his love for
apple pie. And as demands become heavier, the American
makes his contributions greater. Such has been the case in
the 1945 Community War Chest campaign, which opened
October 25, and will run to November 10.

Putting Wyandotte
On Tha Air
WHEN THE PLANS for The Wy
andotte News-Herald's FM Radio
Qtation were revealed to Mayor
Behm and the council they issued
a statement of congratulations say
ing. “It is one of the most forward
steps ever taken in the City of Wy
andotte.”
To the technically minded FM
means Frequency Modulation . . .
anew and completely different
method of sending and receiving ra
dio signals . . . but to the millions
erf music lovers who make up our
radio audience, it has a warmer
meaning ... it means Finer Mu
sic. It brings to radio a realism and
lidelity of tone far beyond anything
that has ever been dreamed for
ether methods of sound transmis
•lon and reproduction . . . together
with a freedom from noise . . . dis
tortion . . . and interference that
has never been approached in the
now outmoded AM transmission . . .
the method which we have been
using since broadcasting first be
gan.
Imagine hearing piano music from
an adjoining room so clearly that
you cannot tell if it is a radio
broadcast or the actual instrument.
The sky outside may be a pyrotech
nic display of lightning . . . elec
tric motors may be making life mis
erable for listeners on other radios
. . . but through your FM receiver
there will be no whisper of alien
eound.
An orchestra begins . . . and. be,
1t symphony or swing, you feel that'
jou are in the same room. The del- j
icate shading of flute . . . violin |
. . . ocoe . . . and clarinet are
{reproduced as faithfully as the mel- |
lowness of the cello or the cheerful
blare of the trumpet. Neither higlr
nor low tones are over-emphasized
. . . each instrument gives its lull
tonal quality as woven into the mu-!
sic by the composer. There is no
blurring ... no distortion . . .
no undue "boom boom” of low notes
or strident shriek of high. There is
perfect clarity of all the instru
ments . . . perfect balance of tone.
Nor will your program be spoiled
by fading or interference ... no
matter where you live or what the
season. You will hear one station
. . . and one only . . . until you
tuna in another. There will be no
unwarranted intrusion in the back
ground of a favorite program by
some station a thousand miles away
... no fishing for a station that
was there on your dial yesterday
. . . but is completely inaudible
today. The stations you want will
be where you expect them ... to
day and tomorrow . . . and every
day throughout the year . . . ready
to bring you the most perfect radio
entertainment ever offered any
where.
That is FM Radio . . . the new
era in broadcasting now being plan
ned through the post-war construc
tion of a Wyandotte radio station.
Today’s announcement climaxes
eighteen months of survey and en
gineering work. The publishers and
the staff of The Wyandotte News-
Herald feel this is an eventful day
. . . another step forward . . .
steps that were begun 67 years ago
with the founding of The Wyan
dotte News-Herald by that beloved
publisher . . . the late Dolly Haven.

ISSUE PERMIT
Tkm Ragles’ Lodge application for
a license to conduct a dance hall
at their headquarters, 3222 Biddle
avenue, wa* approved by city coun
cil Tuesday night.
* The downriver quota for this
year’s drive is $165,000, and 40 per
cent of that quota was reached in
the first week of the campaign,
Harry W. Fenske, district chairman,
announced today. Most of the heavy
donation, however, was supplied by
industrial and corporation groups
which had earmarked the money
prior to the campaign.
Residential and individual yidus
trlal donations have not hit their
stride as yet, Fenske stated. Cam
paign committeemen have indicated
that there must be at least an in
crease of ten per cent in the city’s
contributions to make up for those
who have joined the armed serv
; ices. House-to-house canvassing is
just starting, and an accounting
has not yet been made.
One local firm increased its quota
, this year from $1,500 to $3,000, and
others are following that trend. Most
| corporation increases have approx
imated ten per cent, according to
: Fenske.
BUILDS GOOD WILL
American generosity is a power
ful influence which builds good will
among our Allies, a weapon which
will bring victory closer and will
prepare for the peace to follow.
American generosity assures our
neighbors who are having a diffi
cult time on the friendship of their
feilow-Americans.
The War Chest comprises all the
leading local and national social
service appeals, except the Red
Cross.
This year’s War Chest slogan is:
“Help All Three, Our Neighbors,
Our Fighting Men, Our Allies.”

Police Report
For another year Wyandotte resi
dents can forget the trials and trib
ulations of the Halloween season
and the streets and byways are no
longer haunted by a motley crew
of self styled “spooks”.
With but 17 complaints reported
at the police station this year, it
would appear that the goblins and
witches have gone into hibernation
and are becoming respectable citi
zens of society.
No major catastrophies were re
ported—and the worst evil seemed
to be a preponderance of stray gar
bage on porches of the unwary and
an endless successes of ringing door
bells and pleas for sweets.
