Mind Your Manners

WTIC Radio

(Honorable Mention) Predicated on the assumption that by popularizing the idea that it is smart to have good manners, such will become the normal behavior pattern for young people, and that such early training will contribute to better citizenry tomorrow, WTIC, Hartford, Connecticut, created and conducted the series, Mind Your Manners for teen-age listeners. The program, moderated by Allen Ludden, has won the approval not only of parents and teachers, but, more important, the youngsters themselves. In recognition of this new approach to the much discussed juvenile problem, a George Foster Peabody Radio Citation is hereby awarded.
