program at the University is to
obtain professional quality studio
facilities which will allow for a more
ambitious development of locally
produced programs. "The resources
are here," he explains. "We have an
outstanding faculty. We have one of
the finest historical societies in the
country in our front yard; and we
have a creative and talented staff.
If we can get the necessary finances,
we should be able to add consider-
able stature to the Wisconsin's ex-
isting reputation in the field of ed-
ucational broadcasting."
   Because television is such a costly
 medium, students will have to play
 an increasing role in the local pro-
 gram production. "We feel that this
 is a good thing because it will pro-
,.vide a training ground for students
who want to make a career in tele-
vision. And more students will be
encouraged to come to the Univer-
sity if they know they can get a
first-class background in television
here." Recalling his experiences at
Wayne     State, Dreyfus said   that
when they first started out, they had
only a handful of students, but when

and his wife (the former Joyce Unke)
were living in Badger Village near
Baraboo, and beginning a family
which now includes Susan Lynn, 15,
and Lee Jr., 11.
  Dreyfus later earned his MA and

return to Wisconsin and to play a
key part in the development of the
University's educational climate.

Wisconsin Alumni Association
     Plan to join us this summer-from July 29 to August 20-
   in an exciting tour of eight European countries
and radio. His father was a Hearst
station manager in Milwaukee, and
Lee made his first appearance be-
fore a microphone at the age of 7.
Later, he began playing child parts
in  Chicago   and   Milwaukee. "I
wanted a bicycle," he said, "and
the price of a bicycle was just what
I got for one appearance on a net-
work program so I thought it was a
pretty good way to make enough
money to get that bicycle."
  While he was in Milwaukee, Lee
attended school with another man
who has gone on to make a name in
television-Newton S. Minow, chair-
man of the Federal Communications
Commission, and an outspoken critic
of the intellectual level of television
  After the war, Dreyfus came to
the University of Wisconsin, took an
accelerated program and finished
