INTERNATIONAL Nine Programs From Europe, Queen Mary Will Be Relayed to Listeners in United States Departure of New Ship on Maiden Voyage to New York to Predominate Day’s Offerings; English Derby at Epsom Downs Also Scheduled for Airing. BY RALPH NORMAN Tomorrow well may be called “International Day” in American radio. From Europe and the Queen Mary will originate at least nine programs which will be broadcast for listeners in this country by CBS and NBC. The Queen Mary’s departure on her maiden voyage to New York will, of course, predominate the day’s programs, but there also are to be sporting events and an address to the Na tional Conference on Social Work. At 7:45 tomorrow morning CBS and NBC-WEAF will air descrip tions of the one hundred fifty-sixth runnning of the English Derby at Epsom Downs, with the British Broadcasting Co.’s best sports an nouncers at the microphones. Both networks will switch from the Derby to Southampton docks to describe preparations for the Queen Mary’s sailing, with WFBM and WIRE joining the networks at 8:15 for the International broadcasts. At 9 NBC-WJZ and CBS (WFBM at 9:17) again will switch to the Queen Mary for last-minute de scriptions before sailing orders are given. The sailing orders will be heard at 10 on NBC-WEAF (WIRE). Prog ress of the vessel and description of activites on board will be described by NBC-WJZ at 5:15 in the last pro gram from the Queen Mary tomor row. Both networks have arrange ments for several ship-to-shore pro grams during the voyage, at times to be announced. a a a lI7ITH exception to NBC’s Ra ’ ’ dio City in New York, the Queen Mary is one of the world’s greatest communication centers. It Is completely equipped to “talk,” with 31 wave bands, 14 rad.o opera tors, four powerful transmitters, radio-equipped lifeboats, and ra dio-operated direction finder. Its powerful signals will be heard throughout the world. For bene fit of short wave dialers, the call letters are GBTT. a a a Passengers in any of the Queen Mary’s 500 staterooms may talk by telephone to persons in almost any part of the world, and to prevent eavesdropping by short wave en thusiasts, words will be “scrambled” In transit, but will be heard cor rectly at the telephone connec tions. a a a Henry Wickham Steed, noted journalist, is to speak from Lon don at 2:45, NBC-WEAF (WIRE), addressing his remarks particu larly to the National Conference j on Social Work, meeting in At lantic City. a a a AFTER many years the definite announcement about Joe Pen ner’s program next fall has been made. Without the famous duck, he will be heard on CBS each Sun day evening during the fail ?ind winter, probably beginning the first j Sunday in October. With him will be Bob Crosby’s orchestra. Harry Conn, who writes for Jack Benny, will be the script man. Joe doesn’t want to tell too much about the series; someone might use his ideas during the summer. a a a Eddie Guest’s last welcome Val ley program of the type that has become familiar to listeners dur ing the last year, will be aired at J 6:30 tonight by NBC-WJZ j (WLW). Beginning next week, | Welcome Valley will begin a salute to cities, similar to many others now aired. There will be one difference, however. The best talent of the station in the town saluted will be featured. Detroit, Mr. Guest’s home town, will be the first honored, with The Girl j Friends on the program next Tuesday. a a a Radio Footnotes The Dooley- Dowling Revue, after originating in Chicago during the winter and spring, will move to New York to night, NBC-WEAF (WIRE) at 8. where the comedians will join Benny Goodman’s band. Vox Pop interviewers, Jerry Bel cher and Parks Johnson, find many persons get microphone fright and can't answer the simplest questions. One girl recently couldn’t recall “who delivered Lincoln's Gettysburg address.” Song writers bemoan the fact that radio snertens the life of their songs, and in the same breath plead with orchestra leaders to play their songs to give them popularity.

Bennett, In dianapolis manufacturer who died May 9, was filed today In Probate Court. One-fourth of the estate was be queathed to the son, E. J.

Extra stevedores were summoned. Into a waiting car they rushed the shipment. Away it shot on passenger schedule. When the first customer entered the front door on the day of the sale, the last bolt of the adver tised fabric was sliding in the back.
