      Native Dayton Radio Player Has Future
      by Mildred Mason

      Were television here there should be no question in anyone's mind as to the radio future of Jane Bishir, 19-year-old platinum blonde, native of Dayton, O., and the most recent addition to WLWs dramatic staff. Jane graduated from Steele High School in 1932 and spent the past winter in Miami, Fla., where she made her debut in radio drama and as a continuity writer. Following her return to Dayton this spring she organized the Tower Players— a semi-professional dramatic stock company and now, at WLW, she is launching upon her all consuming ambition for a dramatic career before the microphone.
