Switzerland, April 20— (£>) —The British-American Commission of Inquiry on Pales tine finished today its report on a three-month; s investigation of what should be done about the fu ture of Palestine and the refugee Jews of Europe, a spokesman said. Contents of the report were kept secret, but there were strong in dications that the American and British members of the commis sion, sharply divided two weeks ago, had been able to reach an agreement. The chairmen will de liver the report to their capitals within a few days. Some informed sources spe culated that the British had given ground on the demand of President Truman that 100,000 displaced Jews of Europe be allowed to enter Palestine in the near future. “Montani semper liberi” is not he motto of Montana; it is that of West Virginia, and is Latin for "mountaineers always free." Over The Airways with ben McDonald Talked over the telephone with Sarah Arm Eaton last night and she told me that she is all set to sing on today’s STAR-NEWSREEL over WMFD at 1:15 p.m. In as much as Sarah Ann had to cancel her sche duled appearance on the Merry-Go Round yesterday, it was thought she might be unable to render her special Easter hymnal arrange ments this afternoon. But all is well with this golden-voiced young lady, and come STAR-NEWSREEL time today, she will be on hand to thrill listeners’ in her inimitable style. But Yes This outstanding singer will be accompanied on the organ by none other than Eugene Mauney, one cf the most talented younger musi cians in this section of the country. As a matter of fact, Mauney has a touch that will meet competition in any company. His ability is wide ly recognized, and his appearance on today’s program will be one ol the highlights of the broadcast. Mauney has done considerable playing locally and his fame hai been growing with every perform ance. Outstanding One of the really top radio feat ures to be presented locally in many a day will be the appearance of the Rev. Sanky Lee Blanton on the STAR-NEWSREEL today. The Rev. Mr. Buanton, who will take over his new duties at Wake Forest this Fail, will discuss the signifi cance of Easter and its meaning to present day conditions. Despite the tremendous pressure of his du ties, the Rev. Mr. Blanton found time to speak to his many friends in Southeastern North Carolina over this broadcast in what well may be his last appearance on the air for some time in this part of the coun try. In Addition While she is not new to the air in other parts of the country, Betty King will be making her first spot on the local airways. Mrs. King has a sweet voice with plenty oi volume and her particular type of delivery should make an instani hit with the listeners’ today. The program, a half hour show instead of the usual 15 minutes, will alsc spot the story of the Easter bunny and several which have been espe cially written for the broadcast Put it all together and it spells the STAR-NEWSREEL Easter parade at 1:15 p.m. today'. .Tus* A Line Making her first bow over the air, Jane Smith, soloist on the Merry-Go-Round show yesterday really knocked the customers for i loop. Jane is only 15 and a fresh ' man in the High school, but She ha: —■ —. I . — plenty of presence, a whole lot of 1 ability and there is little question j that we will be hearing plenty more from this young lady ... A bit of a pat on the back for Bill Peters and his round-tablers . . . And by the way, this Patty Jonss can take her place m any group of musicians —she is that good. And For spot news from in and around Southeastern North Caro lina, listen to the STAR - NEWS Round-The-Town Reporter at 1:25 and 6:25 p.m. The Panama Canal Zone cele- i brates Labor Day May 1. i Local Insurance Man Shows Awed On-Lookers How To Fish For Mullet George T. Clark, local insur ance man, was showing the boys how to "do It” Friday night at the Atlantic View pier where the mullets were run ning. The mullet were running, but Clark was making the only catch of any size. The smack to the pride of his fellow-fish erman came when, using three hooks, Clark brought in three fish on one line.
