LISTENING SECTION

With the introduction of radio,

newspaper publishers wondered how

broadcasting would affect them. Many

feared that radio as a quick and easy

means of keeping people informed would

displace the newspaper industry altogether.

Others hoped that the brief newscast

heard on the air would stimulate listeners

interested in the story so they'd buy

the paper to get more information.

This second idea turned out to be closer

to the truth. Radio & print were not

substitutes for each other but actually

supported each other. You see the

relationship between different media is

not always one of displacement but can be

one of reinforcement. However this is

not always the case. Take television &

motion pictures for example, with the

popularization of TV, the motion picture

industry suffered greatly. Movie attendance

dropped when audience members chose to

stay at home and be entertained.

Likewise. When a football game was shown

on the air, the stands were often empty

because fans chose to watch the game at

home.



50. Why does the speaker mention a football game?



(A) To illustrate another effect of television.

PART B

31-34 Conversation between a student and guidance

counselor

*Hello, John. You must be pleased. After all how

many students are lucky enough to have been accepted

at their first and their second choices?

*Not many I know. But I'm not sure yet which one

to choose.

*Well, you seem to have doubts about the state

university. But its biology department has a fine

reputation. What more could a biology major want?

*Yeah. And they also have internships for seniors.

But a friend told me that for the first two years some

lectures have a hundred and fifty students. You probably

wouldn't get to know any of your teachers.

*Well, you might actually. Because those classes also

have small discussion sections. Twice a week, and have

no more than twenty students.

*I know. But I've heard that they are usually taught

by graduate students. At White Stone College all

classes are taught by professors.

*What about Sating? Do you prefer a small town like

White Stone? Or a bigger place like the state capital?

*That doesn't matter to me. What I do care about is

getting individual attention from the faculty than making

friends.

*Look, I've known you for four years now and you seen

to be a pretty outgoing person. I don't think you have

any trouble making friends at the state university.

It sounds to me that you are learning toward White

Stone though?

*I am. The only problem is that the White Stone's

tuition is really high and I'm not sure I can afford it.

*You could still apply for a student loan or sign up for

a work-study program.

*Yeah. I think I'll look into that.
