How comes it now that Govt.proposes
to devote all those buildings to ai

A MUSIC STUDENT'S LAMNT
I am very much distressed that
the classical music concert,started
by Dr. Muller and well continued by
Fr.Loncke,' has been cut to only about'
.a quarter-"of an hour. Now how can yax
have a concert in 15 minutes? First
they shifted the time from evening
to collide with Big A's concert on
Sunday lunchtime, then. when they got
the public interested in the change
over, they butchered the timingThis
is strictly unfair, and I always. un-
deratood- a national broadcasting sta-,
tion should.cater to all. M.S.
