WNYC Broadcast VD Meeting
"In a unique experiment in mass scale radio education, station WNYC will devote its entire broadcasting facilities from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. to the Regional Social Hygiene Conference at the Hotel Pennsylvania today.
"Speakers at the Conference sponsored by the American Social Hygiene Assn., will include Charles Bolte, Tex McCrary, Health Commissioner Weinstein, Ray Lyman Wilbur and other leaders in current affairs. Their speeches, all of which will be broadcast by WNYC, will cover such subjects as Marriage and Divorce in the U.S. Today
and The Rising Tide of Venereal Diseases
. WNYC decided to give six hours of air time to this conference out of concern over the increase in VD."
