A.A.'s Country-wide News Circuit

There've been lots of radio broadcasts in all parts of the country publicizing A.A., educationally speaking. But February 6th of this year was, for Manhattan A.A.s at least, an outstanding date in radio history. On that day Station WMCA, the first of the city's networks to mention A.A. in one of its regular entertainment features, discussed the alcoholic problem and A.A. openly, in one of the "soap-operas." The drunken heroine of the story, sorely in need of help to patch up her emotionally ragged home, was informed of A.A. by her doctor and advised to try it. She did; she got sober--and of course she lived happily ever after.

Here's another date to remember: St. Patrick's day, March 17. Rudy P., French horn player of the New York Philharmonic, together with some of his generous-spirited symphonic friends, will give on St. Patrick's day at the A.A. Cosmopolitan clubhouse, 405 W. 41st St., New York City, a program of chamber music, to begin at 8:45 P.M. Beethoven's septette and some woodwind quintettes will be played.
