"White Knuckles" Davidson (a nickname acquired when observers have noticed
his death-like grip on all airplane seats), was pleased with the reception
he received at Ferris State College. Arriving there by car was a very
harrowing experience when last Saturday's highways were covered with ice and
made driving very treacherous: In addition, somebody pulled the plug on the
slide projector (he was using our great station slide presentation as part
of his talk) and he almost had a heart seizure until he discovered somebody
just wanted to use the outlet to make some coffee. Was somebody trying to
tell him something? Seriously, Jack, congratulations on being initiated into
the Alpha Delta Sigma advertising fraternity.
Our new Traffic Director is Wanda Jarvis. Congratulations, Wanda! Her new
assistant is Kathleen Bell. Welcome, Kathy!
If you're looking for something really good in Christmas music albums this
year, consider, please, the one released this year by the First Presbyterian
Church of Dearborn. It's not one of the run-of-the-mill issues with Silent
Night and Away in the Manger but rather contains excellent and different
selections by the choir and two sensational organ renditions. The cost is
little ($3.00 - no tax!) and Mr. Patterson would be delighted to personally
handle the sale.
Speaking of albums, WKNR has supplied about 700 of its News Album to Detroit
area high school journalism classes. These have been requested by teachers
and principals of these schools.
A tour of the station was made on November 29 by 30 speech class students
from Kettering High School at Waterford.
KeeNeR employees are becoming world travelers. Jack and Eleanor Davidson
recently returned from a vacation in Mexico, and Mr. and Mrs. Jack Sitta are

Personal appearances by our DJ's included one by Dick Purtan who
participated in a panel discussion at Cranbrook School Tuesday night,
November 28. Dave Forster will be speaking at Central High School Thursday,
December 7 - Career Day.
Your editor is running short of items to fill these pages because you are
not all reporting what you're doing (Which I can print, of course:) If you
don't give me more reports, I'm going to fill the sheet with cookie recipes
or how to embroider a doily. So it's up to you!
