  ACTION ON POLICY FOR CHANNEL 30

  Blacksburg CATV Committee expressing Virginia Tech's opinion of the impor-

  tance of minority offerings to the community and urged the Chairman to sup-

  port this channel for Blacksburg Cable TV use.  Charles Bostian informed

  policy for Channel 30 on Virginia Tech's Cable TV System, members include:

 

  Robert Sumichrast as Chairman

  port any findings back to the committee at the January meeting.  Erv Blythe

  pointed out that two to four hours of educational programming are already

  scheduled on channel 30.

  gestions of the Self-Study Monitoring Committee.  These responsibilities
