Mrs. Celeste Avila was born in Chaves, Portugal and has lived in the United States for twenty-one years. She writes all the script for the daily, hour-long programs given in the Portuguese language over station KROW, Oakland, California. She says about her radio work: "It has been a very great pleasure and satisfaction to be a part of a project which serves to make the people of Portuguese blood better citizens of this country. In this work, I, of course, have many contacts with the Portuguese and I know of their deep satisfaction at becoming an integral part of the U.S.
