This section presents an update on various divisions of the Speech Communication Association (SCA) as of October 1971. Among the many changes in this dawning Age of Aquarius is the reorganization of the Interest Group into an Interpretation Division (ID). Lilla Heston, ID chairman, makes a welcome announcement, namely, that Charlotte Waisman of Northeastern Illinois State College has informed the ID Executive Board that her school is willing to provide financial support for an ID newsletter for the coming year, 1972. According to Wallace A. Bacon, ID vice chairman-elect, who directed the ID mini-course conducted in Chicago, Illinois, July 8-10, 1971, and according to evaluations from participants, the course proved generally successful. The Federal Communications Commission has stated that Community Antenna Television operators may lease all time on public access channels which is not used by the public. SCA members from all divisions should apply their knowledge of communication to assist and encourage the use of these channels as they become available across the country. The initial Public Address Division roster of seventy-one names was drawn up at the divisional meeting in New Orleans, Louisiana. The general purpose of the Division of Rhetorical and Communication Theory shall be to provide professional interaction among members of the SCA who are interested in the development of rhetorical and communication theory.
