New York, May 20.—The first
shlp-to-shore radio broadcast ever
attempted from mid-ocean will take
place Wednesday evening. May 20,
at 7:45 Eastern Daylight time, from
the home-bound S. S. Leviathan, of
the United States lines, when that
ship is a thousand miles from Sandy
Hook. A shtp-to-shore wireless tele
phone will carry the voice of Rob
ert L. (“Believe it or Not”) Ripley

cast over a regular radio hook-up
of nine stations covering the At
lantic seaboard, from Maine to
Georgia. This will inaugurate a
new twice-a-w’eek radio program
sponsored by the Standard Oil com
pany of New Jersey.
Known all over the civilized world
for his “Believe it or Not” cartoons,
Mr. Ripley (who signs his drawings
simply as •Rip") is returning from
a two months' trip In search of new
“Queerloddltles” and facts that arc
stranger than fiction. After search
ing through remote corners of Al
giers, Tunis, Morocco, Egypt, the
Balkans and the Holy Land, as well
as Europe, artist Ripley sailed from
Southampton, May 18th. He plans
to reveal In his mid-occan talk, It
Is reported, some of the latest In
credibilities unearthed on his trip
which he has not yet been able to
work into drawings.
Since the program Is scheduled to
begin May 20th, and the Leviathan
Is not scheduled to dock In New
York until May 22nd, special meth
ods had to be adopted to get Mr.
Ripley’s voice through to waiting

Window* To You
This is an exact drawing of the black circle in 01^
See the large black silk circle in the center
window of our store. It is more than six feet
in diameter. On the rim of the circle are
displayed all the photographs of members of
the Senior Class of the Shelby High School,
both boys and girls. In the middle of fhe
circle is an eight-day clock. The clock has
been wound up to run for an unknown length
of time. Maybe it will run not more than
two days, maybe it will run for four days,
or five days, maybe it will run a week. Who
knows? But when it stops, the two hands
will be pointing to two lucky seniors’ pictures
on the rim of the circle. The photographs
nearest in line with the clocks’ hands when it
stops, will be the winners of two handsome
gifts from the J. C. Penney Company.
Watch The Clock Every Day Un

The Two Grand Prizes.
On tHe rim, the photographs; in the center, the bar at
