Broadcast Tonight From Mid-Atlantic (Special to The Star.) 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 to New York, where it will be broad 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 listeners.
