TV will serve area by Tim Blackmore By the early fall of 1979. Lewis County will be able to enjoy award winning pro- grams on the Public Broad- casting Service for the first time when an educational station at Bluffs, Ill. signs on the air. The educational station, WJPT will be a part of a vast consortium of colleges in west central Illinois that have joined together to provide educational television service to some two million people living in western Illinois, southeast Iowa and northesast Missouri. The educational netwol'k known as Convocom will be operating two other TV sta- tions in addition to the Bluffs station. Convocom is currently constructing WQPT, channel 24 to serve the Quad Cities area, and will operate WTVP channel 47 in Peoria. Convocom was formed as a non-profit corporation in 1976 as a joint public-private educational effort by Bradley University ihPeoria, Sanga- mon State in Springfield, and Western Illinois University at Macomb and Black Hawk College in Rock Island. In addition to providing service via the UHF TV stations Convocom is constructing a network of microwave sta- tions, to link the various universities and colleges. Convocom was explained to area educators and news media by Convocom officials, including president George Hall at special meetings on Thursday. Construction on a new $I million tower for the Bluffs station is expected to begin in April, 1979 and be completed in the fall. The area served by Convo- corn is termed as "the least populous part of the country with favorable terrain without public television service," said Hall. Lewis County viewers will receive Convocom program- ming from the Bluffs station on UHF channel 14. The main offices and studios will be located on the Western Illinois University campus in Macomb. • Hall stressed the fact the station will travel throughout thd service area to record special programs of interest to the area. The station will carry national and international Public Broadcasting Service programming, special interest programs to people in the cover*area of the station as well as ecuational pro- grams for both students from nursery school to college, technical update service for professionals and cultural programming. Hall stressea the fact Convocom will be doing what other stations cannot do. The telecommunication fa- cilities will be available for use by area colleges including Culver-Stockton. The start of the new servic( was delayed when an existir tower for channel 14 wa toppled by a heavy ice storm, Easter weekend. The new tower will be over 1600 feel tall. making it the talles! structure in Illinois. Th{ station expects to serve the Quincy-Hannibal area on th{ west and Springfield-Decatm on the east and serve Alton on the south. Convocom is funded through state and federal grants and in addition, private contribu- tions from viewers and cor- porations will be sought to finance the operation. An estimated $5.5 million in both grants and contributions will be needed to get Convo- corn in operation by fall, 1979.

C-S fund drive raises $1,000 over goal This year's Culver-Stockton Fund Drive in Canton-Lewis County exceeded the goal by over $I,000, announced Char- les Edwards, vice president of college relations for Culver- Stockton.
