Round The Town
With Ben McDonald 1'v,at univr’-'-al expression, “Is, mv face red?” really applied to me last Sunday when I advised thai y°u wou^ *'nd a picture ci pad T. Marshburn and Joe callings some where in the Column, dressed in rather odd costumes tor both these gentle men. In the shuf ! the picture was momentarily mislaied and one looked in vain for the picture, very obviously. How ever, your report er decided that it was most im poriant to find the picture in oKter that our veracity would not be doubted. So, wearing pjv bes* F. B. I. expression and using my correspondence-school detective methods, I ur<earthed the picture of these two gentlemen underneath my worn out type writer. So, to wit: and therefore, we really and truly present today this very old but still very pic turesque cut of Paul T. and his Paul T. Marshburn (right) and friend, Joe Sailings friend. Joe. when Paul T. Played the part oi “Aunt Emmaline” on a radio skit that today is •till remembered by the great many of the listeners. ODDS AND ENDS . . .

Frankly, it was pretty hard to be lieve but a number of witnesses attest to its truthfulness: Last Thursday Edgar Peterson, Wil mington a local milk employee, parked his car at a filling station alongside the milk plant. He re ported for work and remembering that he had something in the car vital to his employment he start ed back to the filling station. As he arrived at the filling station, to his complete amazement, he saw his car moving driverless across the new Wrightsville Beach highway, With a lump in his throat he took a quick gander at the on coming traffic and silently crossed his fingers for luck. Apparently it did some good, for Mr. Peterson’s car went right across the boule vard and up over the curbstone and came to a stop just as if it was being driven. No hits, no er rors and one good run. The only explanation one can gather i^ that the car automatically started down the incline at the gas station, gained sufficient momentum to carry it across the street and when it hit the curbstone on the other side, it automatically threw itself ir. gear, bringing the car to a stop It happened nere, it really did. A FINAL WORK OR TWO When the Burgaw Lions Club en tertained the Lionesses, the Messrs. Truax, owners of the new veneer plant in Burgaw, were the special guests of the evening.

Benton said the sabotage has been corrected and quoted news reports from Moscow saying that U. S. broadcasts are being heard clearly in the Soviet capital and winning new listners. Benton’s statement was evident ly prompted by reports that the first “Voice of America” broad casts to Russia could hardly be heard. He said that on March 27, he received a cable from E. J. Ker rigan, special consultant to the State Department from Munich reporting that “the switching gear on one of our antennae had been sabotaged.” “He said that the doors on the j switch-house had been broken and tne switch of the antennae had purposely been ‘reversed’ so that it was directed to South America rather than to Moscow.” Benton said that during the week of March 17 to 25 experi ments on a new frequency beam ed to the Soviet Union failed aP* parently because of the sabotage. The oondition was corrected on March 25, he added. He quoted an Associated Press dispatch from Moscow on March 26, as saying that "Voice of Ameri ca” broadcasts "pounded into Moscow tonight as loud as the Moscow radio, clear, and with no interference.” Whale oil, used as lubricant on most early-day light machinery, usually turned rancid, making work jn such establishments as textile mills highly unpleasant. i ■ ■ « «i « iri i"«iii::i| I -ANNOUNCEMENT- | 1 CAROLINA FLOWERS, INC.
