Yesterday being the first day of a new year, we listened more atten-
tively than usual to the programs of the day. Having done this, we feel
privileged to state that one of the most entertaining days in our radio
reviewing career was marked by the debut of the year one thousand
nine hundred and fifty-five. By the very closest observance, we note
not only from yesterday's delightful program, but also fro-m other recent
ones, that women have come into their own in the business and politi-
cal worlds and thus in the radio world.
We hope that our readers were also listeners-in, for we are sure
that our humble column cannot possibly afford the enjoyment and
entertainment furnished by yesterday's interesting and effective pro-
Miss Sylvia Lichtenstein, winner of the l94O American Athletic
Association Award, delivered another of her interesting series of health
talks. After Miss Lichtenstein's valuable discourse, we were entertained
and benefited by Miss Betty Burmeister's program of new and novel
At ten, Dr, Frieda Frank rewarded us by her long and eagerly
awaited speech on health problems. One half hour later, Miss Faith
Smith, world-renowned artist, told us how to make our homes more
Next, Miss Sylvia Kaplan was most entertaining in her account of
the South American jungle. The eminent biologist discussed the new
discoveries of her recent exploration trip. Mollie Brick, Ellen Herman,
and Lillian Ghase, who have collaborated on so many of our interesting
styles, satisfied our curiosity concerning this winter's Paris creations in
a brief half hour account of their latest visit to the Paris shops.
Miss Flora Ginsburg, who very soon, it is rumored, is to have a
permanent position on this station, justified this rumor in her brilliant
thirty-minute talk on culture. The usually dull noon hour was consid-
erably brightened by Miss Ginsburg as well as by Miss Shirley Goldstein,
who occupied the other half of this delightful hour, in speaking on
"Woman's Permanent Place in journalism."
We were now highly entertained by Miss Pearl Gerstenfeld, who
delivered an address on the "Influence of the Radio upon' Your Ghila
dren." Miss Gerstenfeld has headed this uplift movement for the past

three years. We next derived our usual enjoyment from an account of
the news events of the day by Miss Maisie Baum, Editor of "Time"
Miss jeannette l-lausner, universally popular as one of the most
charming women of today, was as likeable as usual in her half hour talk
on the "Value of Charm." A medal was presented to Miss Frances
Murphy for her flight across the Pacific, after which she gave a short
account of the flight.
We were then greatly interested by a novel program which will
appear once a week over Wl-lS at three o'clock P.M. lt presented Miss
Rebecca Cordon, our well-liked district attorney, in an attack on crime.
She was ably assisted by Miss Pauline Cold, a well-known court stenog-
rapher, who cited examples from her own past experiences to prove Miss
At four yesterday afternoon, we heard Miss Florence Rosenblum,
universally known literary critic, interview our eminent author, Miss
Cordelia Olzvary, concerning her newest book. Ruth Greenfield was
lovely as usual in her program of melody.
Our attention was next arrested by a program of poetry and music
which featured Miss Marjorie Brensburg, poet, and Miss lrma Solomon,
soloist. Miss Brensburg introduced Miss Cecelia Adelman as a visiting
poet, who read from some of her recently published works. During the
next half hour, the Misses june Cooke and Corinne Cooper, "Times"
Photographers, gave a brief talk on modern photography.
After the daily weather and stock market report, which by the way
informed us that stocks are still: on their way up, the station signed off
for a brief respite until 8:00 P.M.
From eight to nine, we heard a program sponsored by Lillian
Riedinger and Co., starring Miss Emly Cohn, dancer and songstress, and
featuring each week two new guest stars. This week, the stars playing
in a short sketch were Anita Drucker, singer, and Agnes Dixon, drama-
tist. This program is directed by MissRuth Davis, who sings as well as
For the next half hour we were entranced by the revival of Eugene
O,Neill's "lle,', by Miss Mimi Lowenthal and her stock company, on a
program sponsored by the Shirley Davis Advertising Company.
A well-planned debate occupied the next hour. Its principals were
Senator Alice Major, New York's prominent member to Congress, and
