Eaton, at 66, now is proposing to extend his broadcasting domain across the Pacific through the purchase, subject to Federal Communications Commission approval, of television station KTRG-TV in Honolulu. As president and sole stockholder of United Broadcasting Company, Eaton has contracted to buy KTRG-TV for jj HATCHET DAY Knitted l I L TOPS I MANY 'ffflllLf' ff l styiis i mrtmmA n TO CHOOSE J I!

Hawaiian Paraaise Park Corporation, present owner of KTRG, applied to the F.C.C. February 3 for transfer of its license, recently renewed for three years, to Friendly Broadcasting Company, another Eaton enterprise to which he transferred United's rights under the purchase agreement. Friendly Broadcasting is licensee of radio station WJMO and WCUY-FM in Cleveland Heights, Ohio, and is the parent company of United Television Company of New Hampshire, licensee of television station WMUR in Manchester, New Hampshire. Other stations controlled by Eaton are WOOK, WOOK-TV, and WFAN-FM in Washington; WBNX, New York; WANT, Richmond, Virginia; WSID and WSID-FM, Baltimore, Maryland; WINX, Rockville, Maryland; and WFAB, Miami, Florida. He holds construction permits for WMET-TV, Baltimore, and WJMY in Allen Park, Michigan. He also is owner of UBC Sales, Incorporated, selling radio and television time. Eaton, a former newspaper reporter and radio news commentator, testified at a hearing last October that he is the active operating head of each of his stations and personally directs programming. In his testimony, Eaton reviewed his life story. The hearing involved his application for renewal of the license of radio station WOOK in Washington. Born in Chicago December 8, 1899, Eaton left the United States at age 7 when his father became chief urologist at the American Hospital in Paris. He returned to the United States to attend Harvard. Although his education was interrupted by an attack of infantile paralysis, he was graduated from Harvard on crutches with the class of 1920. Returning to France, Eaton became a foreign correspondent for a Paris newspaper, Le Journal Des Debats. He also worked for the Westminster Gazette in London, traveled throughout Europe for three years as correspondent for the Matin in Paris, writing articles syndicated in La Nation Beige in Brussels and the London Daily Mail. Later in Paris, Eaton started a weekly tabloid,' L'-Etoile, which became an illustrated supplement to various dailies throughout France. Lar he took over some of the smaller papers unable to pay for the tabloid and by 1938 had became publisher of 26 French newspapers. But Eaton said he had to abandon all his properties and flee to Spain and Portugal in fear of his life when Adolf Hitler's German armies occupied France in 1940. "I thought I would be arrested and shot as an enemy of Hitler," he testified. Hawaiian Science Fair March 10-20 at Village From Portugal, Eaton returned to the United States with his mother, his wife, his son, Pierre, and his dog, arriving in Washington July 25, 1940. Eaton said his mother, who had "limited, but at least enough" investments in tne United States inherited from his father, gave him an $800 car. He traded this, he said, for a lower priced car, borrowed $300 and founded a weekly newspaper in Falls Church, Virginia. His first experience with broadcasting came in late 1940 when he joined the staff of a new Washington radio station, WN1X, as a news commentator. "I found 1 had a great facility for news commentary because of my background and newspaper experience and the fact I spoke several languages and was able to make friends in the various embassies here," Eaton related. Moving to the Mutual Broadcasting System as news commentator, Eaton was on duty December 7, 1941, ad libbing commentary on that network for about an hour after announcement of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. In 1944, Eaton applied to the Communications Commission for a new radio station, WOOK, in Silver Spring, Maryland. After a wartime freeze, the application was granted in 1947. WOOK later was shifted to Washington. In 1948, Eaton purchased WSID in Baltimore and two years later put WANT on the air in Richmond. In 1960, the FCC conducted a field investigation of the operation of Eaton's stations and raised questions concerning the liaison he maintained with his stations to supervise management and operations. After receiving his reply, in which he outlined a schedule of regular visits, the Communications Commission extended the licenses of five stations only 15 months, instead of the usual three years, to give Eaton opportunity to demonstrate the effectiveness of his supervision. Subsequently the licenses were given full renewals. In 1953 Eaton and his wife adopted five European refugee children.
