The Unlimited Horizons Radio Program

Dee-Scription: Home >> D D Too Home >> Radio Logs >> Unlimited Horizons





Background

From the October 10th 1942 edition of the Tucson Daily Citizen:

     Arnold Marquis, writer and producer for the National Broadcasting company in Hollywood, will be at the University of Arizona Monday to obtain scrip material for the program "Unlimited Horizons" from Dr. Andrew E. Douglas, director of the laboratory of tree-ring research at the university.
     The program will be broadcast over a nationwide NBC hookup and will be heard through KVOA at 9:30 p.m. Sunday, October 25.
     This will be the first Arizona university program of the fall on "Unlimited Horizons." When the university last spring joined the other colleges in the group which makes up the program, there were six in all, alternating each week in making the broadcasts.
     The material which Marquis will obtain from Douglass deals with the tree-ring science which Douglass invented. The valuable study of tree-rings enables the determination of climactic cycles to be made. Long-term planning of land use is one of the many important applications of the science.


From the Ocotber 11th 1942 edition of the Nevada State Journal:

Story of Snow Surveying Discovery to Go on Air  

     Stories of significant scientific accomplishment at the University of Nevada will be broadcast from coast to coast by the National Broadcasting Company this season.
     Part of the Unlimited Horizons series of NBC, the nevada stories will be told in dramatic form along with similar achievements at five other far western universities.
     The programs will go on the air over a 100-station chain of the broadcasting company from Hollywood, Pacific radio center, where they will be produced by professional actors.
      First University of Nevada story of this season will be that of the discovery and development of snow surveying by Dr. J.E. Church, recognized internationally as the "father" of snow surveying.  It will go on the air October 18, according to present plans.
       Two or three other University of Nevada programs will be produced by the NBC before the end of the current series.
     First Nevada appearance was that of early summer, when the conquest of red water disease in cattle by Dr. Edward Records and Dr. Lyman Vawter, U of N. veterinarians, was told dramatically as an Unlimited Horizon.
     Associated with the University of Nevada in the series are the Universities of California and Arizona, California Institute of Technology, and Stanford and Santa Clara Universities.
     Beginning October 4, Unlimited Horizons is on the air over NBC red network stations from 8:30 to 9 o'clock Pacific war time each Sunday evening.

From the November 3rd 1942 edition of the Tucson Daily Citizen:

Tree-Ring Air
Program To Be
Heard Sunday

Science Developed By Famed
University Scientist On
'Unlimited Horizons'

     The tree-ring science of Dr. Andrew E. Douglass, director of the laboratory of tree-ring research at the University of Arizona, will be featured in a twice-postponed nation-wide broadcast of "Unlimited Horizons" this Sunday. The science is a method of reaching back into the past by means of tree-ring reading, which enables predictions concerning the future to be made.
     Entitled "Reading the Past In Tree Rings," the program will be heard over 100 NBC radio stations. Locallly it will be broadcast on KVOA at 9:30 p.m. Former schedulings of the program were for November 1 and for October 25, but it will definitely go on the air this sunday.
     Arnold Marquis of Hollywood has directed and written the program. Marquis was in Tucson some weeks ago to obtain the material from Douglass for this fourth program in the third series of adventures in the scientific laboratories of the west. The "Unlimited Horizons" broadcasts relate dramatically man's struggle with the elements and his conquest of the unknown. They are stories of men of science whose work has advanced man toward a higher civilization.
Reveals Age
     Dr. Douglass's tree-ring science reveals not only the age of a tree, but also what happened to the tree during its lifetime. Cycles of weather insofar as they have influenced the tree can thus be determined. And by reading this "diary of the weather," Dr. Douglass can place the exact historical dates on human events when those exact dates would not be otherwise known; he can determine the actual dates on prehistoric ruins; and he can predict climatic cycles of the future by studying the climatic cycles of the past as discovered from tree rings.
     The broadcast will be in the form of a drama, with a narrator and musical background accompanying the action, the process of Dr. Douglass, discovery and its vital implications.


From the November 6th 1942 edition of the Tucson Daily Citizen:

Another U.A. Scientist to Be Air Feature

Dr. Edwin A. McKee's Work
Will Be Radio Subject
November 15

     Another nation-wide National Broadcasting company program of "Unlimited Horizons" will feature the accomplishments of a University of Arizona scientist, Dr. Edwin D. McKee, associate assistant professor of geology at the university and head naturalist at the Grand Canyon national park, the university radio bureau announced today.
     Entitled "The Autobiography of the Earth," the program will tell the story of how new glimpses of ancient landscapes have been brought to light through McKee's research in the Grand Canyon. It will dramatically portray his ability to read the past in the walls of the canyon.
Set November 15
     The broadcast will be carried over KVOA and 100 other National stations Sunday, November 15, at 9:30 p.. It will mark the second "Unlimited Horizons" program in two weeks to feature University of Arizona research workers. This sunday at the same time the program will present the tree-ring science of Dr. Andrew E. Douglass.
     McKee has been head naturalist at the Grand Canyon national park for 12 years. He has been engaged recently in research sponsored by the Carnagie Institute of Washington as research associate. The work has been a cooperative project with the national park service, and the results have been published by hte Carnegie institute.
     Two volumes by McKee have already been published, concerning specific canyon formations. A third will be published shortly, and it is the work described in this volume which will be presented in the broadcast--the result of a series of studies reconstructing landscapes of the past at different periods.
Comes To U.A.
     McKee was appointed as assistant director of the Flagstaff Museum of Northern Arizona last year. He came to the University of Arizona this year as assistant professor of geology on leave from the museum, replacing Robert M. Herson, who resigned to go into private strategic mineral work.
     Arnold Marquis has written and directed both the program of McKee and this week's tree-ring broadcast for the "Unlimited Horizons" series of adventures in the scientific laboratories of the west.


From the January 22nd 1943 edition of the Tucson Daily Citizen:


Dr. Smith Bests National Disease

University Chemist Is
Discoverer Of Cause
And Also Cure

     "Slow Poison," the story of how Dr. Margaret Cammack Smith, nutrition chemist at the University of Arizona, won a battle against "a mysterious destroyer" that was causing "mottled teeth, a scourge that attacks and destroys teeth," and which now exists in every state west of the Mississippi and in about half of the states east of the Mississippi--this story will be told on the Unlimited Horizons radio program on Sunday, Jan 31.  The program is carried on a coast-to-coast NBC hook-up on more than 100 stations, locally at 9:30 p.m. over KVOA.
     With her husband, H.V. Smith, argicultural chemist at the university, and other university associates, Dr. Smith set out to find the cause for the disease of mottled teeth with the ultimate aim of gaining a method of preventing its extensive destruction of teeth.
               Study At St. David
     A report had reached Dr. Smith that the community of St. David, Ariz., 63 miles southeast of Tucson, was suffering unusually from mottled teeth.  So she and an assistant, Edith Leverton, went to this town of 39 families and 250 inhabitants to investigate.
     They found that 50 per cent of all the people over 26 years old in St. David had false teeth--their original teeth destroyed by mottling.  They also found that invariably the baby teeth were intact but that the second teeth were the ones mottled.  Dr. Smith saw that her job was to find out what was happening between arrival of the first and second teeth.
     Records of food intake of 19 St. David children were taken and samples of hte food were sent to the university laboratories where each sample was analyzed for dietary essentials.  But the diets of the "sample" children were found to be almost perfect, and Dr. Smith struck out on another tack--she gave the children supplemental feedings of cod-liver oil, viosterol, and milk to try to make up any possible deficiency.  The second teeth still came in mottled.
               Begins To Find Clews
     Now Dr. Smith set out to attempt the production of the disease in the laboratory.  For this work she used thousands of rats with which she had been experimenting for years in her nutrition research.  Diets deficient in calcium, phosphorous, and vitamin D were alternately fed to the rodents--no mottling resulted.  Copper was fed in small amounts with the food of the rats, and then manganese--for Dr. Smith saw the possibility that quantities of these metals, common in this state, might be getting into the food at St. David and causing the mottled teeth.  But still the treated and untreated rats were uniformly free from the condition.
     Finally, following a suggestion that drinking water might be the mysterious element, Dr. Smith performed a series of experiments, feeding St. David water to one group of the rats, and university water to another--and the second teeth of the first group grew in mottled--chalky, dull, with no lustre, and with enamel chipped.  She had found the "destroyer"--drinking water.  She had produced mottled teeth in the laboratory.
               Next--The Basic Cause
     The next and crucial problem was to discover the element in that water that was the basic cause, the element contained in the St. David water but not in Tucson water (for the rats fed on Tucson water had grown perfect new teeth).
     And after much more work, fluorine, an element of the chlorine family, was found to be the "slow poison."  Fluorine fed to the rats mottled their teeth consistently.
     After 4,000 analyses of water, it was found that one part of fluorine to a million parts of water is enough to cause mottled teeth.  And once teeth are mottled, nothing can be done; the brown stain can be removed, but the destructive mottling cannot be remedied.
               Found To Affect Bones
     The cause found, the method of prevention remained to be discovered for Dr. Smith realized that she might be fighting an enemy even more destructive than now known--for the bones as well as the teeth of the rats had been destroyed by the fluorine.  Might not the bones too, of humans in time suffer from this destructive force, just as the teeth of so many millions were already suffering?
     The prevention was found:  It was discovered that bone, animal bone, contains a certain amount of fluorine.  This was removed from the bone, and the ground bone inserted in fluorine-containing water.  Lacking its normal complement of fluorine, the bone absorbed the fluorine from the water, leaving the water relatively pure.
     Thus Dr. Smith had fuond the cause and preventative for a nation's disease.
From the January 28th 1943 edition of the Tucson Daily Citizen:
Canals Built 600 Years Ago In Use

Indians Constructed
Vast System Back
In 14th Century

     "Unlimited Horizons" has found another University of Arizona scientist whose work is worthy of a national radio broadcast:  Dr. Emil W. Haury, who discovered in his work at the Papago Indian reservation that the agricultural basis for the civilization of the Papagos of 600 years ago was essentially the same as the agricultural basis for Arizona's--and the nation's--farm civilization today.  Arnold Marquis, writer producer of the coast-to-coast NBC "Unlimited Horizons," is calling this program "Water Is Life."
     The Papagos today are living on the same land and living essentially the same life as their forefathers six centuries ago, Haury found.  They are a group of about 6,000 peaceful agricultural Indians, now depending on natural food products for their livelihood, doing very little hunting, living in and around 12 small villages.
               Finds 150 Villages
     When Haury surveyed the Papago country, he discovered 150 villages, past and present, where the Papagos had conquered the sand and rock of the desert and found to a living from the soil by agriculture.  It was only through agriculture that he could have found a permanent dwelling place and built a superior civilization.
     Man can only live in any area as long as he can get food there, Haury reasoned.  Unless he has transportation to bring food to him he must depend on the resources at hand.  If he depends on hunting, he can only stay in one place as long as he can kill animals.  When he has killed them all, or when the animals leave, then he too must leave.  If man depends on plants, the same is true, unless he can grow his own food.
               Farming Is Social Basis
     For when man ceased being a hunter and turned to growing his own food, he made a great social stride, Haury points out.  That was a turning point in civilization.  For this released a certain portion of the people to do other things.
     The first discovery made by Haury was of a 10-mile-long irrigation canal, five feet deep and eight feet wide, a man-made ditch that drops 600 feet in its 10 miles.  It was built by Indians to gather water as it ran from the mountains--and Haury was able to date it as fourteenth century by the tree-ring dating system of Dr. Andrew Douglass, another university scientist whose work has been celebrated by "Unlimited Horizons" and dating potter found in the canal.
     The canal was dug by hand, with crude implements of stone and wood, by great number of Indians, both adults and children, and over a very long period of time.
     The discovery of this canal at Jackrabbit was the beginning of a series of revelatory discoveries.
               Town Dates To 800 A.D.
     A still older town was found--Valshni, dated as old as 800 A.D.  But the bones of mountain sheep and knives, spears, and arrowheads found in excavations pointed to a hunting culture, non-agricultural.  A canal near the town led to the excavation of another agricultural town, again dated 14th century, showing that the forefathers of the Papagos had set aside their hunting weapons in the 14th century and had begun to grow their food.
     Without water, food crops would not mature, and without canals, water could not be brought to the fields.  The canals were constructed without instruments to lay them out or to figure grades, and Haury points to the fact that great organization and leadership were needed in the work of settling the basis for the pre-historic trinity:  Beans, corn, and squash.
               Finds Vast Canal System
     By airplane, Haury continued his research.  A web of 300 miles of canals was found in the Salt river valley, hundreds more in the Gila valley, some 20 miles long and 60 feet wide.  These were of a somewhat different type, drawing their water from the rivers instead of from the mountain drainage.  In the Salt river valley alone, 250 square miles had been reclaimed from desert and made arable by prehistoric canals.
     Today in the Salt river valley, the same irrigation systems are being used, indeed, many of the same canals, in one of the richest agricultural areas in the world.
     Southern Arizona's prehistorics developed their canal systems coincidentally with the Gila and Salt river prehistorics, it seems.
     And from the irrigation and agricultural developments, more time was available for the development of arts and industries.  Man stopped roaming--the Indians began making finer pottery, better stone implements; cotton growing was learned, and weaves and fabrics worked out.
               Same Principle Used Now
     The 20th century today uses that same 600-year-old principle of leading water from the place where you can get it to the place where you need it.  And the applications of the principle is aided by the use of machinery, developed by man in the time he gained after he ceased hunting for his life's food and began to grow it.
     "Unlimited Horizons" will dramatize this story of the work of Dr. Haury, director of the Arizona state museum and head of the department of anthropology at the university, over more than 100 NBC stations on Sunday, February 7, locally on KVOA, at 9:30 p.m.
     This Sunday the mottled teeth discoveries of Dr. Margaret Cammack Smith will be featured on an "Unlimited Horizons" program at the same hour.

The story of Dr. Esslinger's work will be told in "Muscles for Victory," latest chapter in Arnold Marquis' "Unlimited Horizons" Sunday over WBAP at 10:30 p.m. Seven months before Pearl Harbor, the war department commissioned Dr. Esslinger to make a survey of the physical condition of America's soldiers. He and his committee toured the nation, putting groups of men in each camp through tests for endurance agility, co-ordination, strength and power. They found that the paratroopers were the only men up to the standard necessary for fighting. In order to remedy this, Dr. Esslinger designed a course of training which he tried out on 1,200 Stanford students before it was adopted by the armed forces.
