IN our last issue we made appeals for publicity by means of wireless broadcasting, and we are now pleased to state that this method has been successfully adopted and carried out by Mr. L. Stanley Jast at Manchester and by Mr. G. T. Shaw at Liverpool. We venture to suggest, however, that the executive of the Library Association should approach the British Broadcasting Company with a view to obtaining permission for a simultaneous broadcast weekly on some important phase of the Library Movement. The Liverpool and Manchester broadcasts were a purely local venture and would not reach listeners‐in outside a fifty‐mile radius unless very high power instruments were used. If, however, land lines could be put into operation it would be possible to reach every portion of the British Isles, and the possessor of the smallest crystal set would be able to hear. Could we not persuade the Hon. Secretary of the Library Association to undertake the task of addressing an invisible audience of something over a quarter‐of‐a‐million?
