These are some highlights from the News Journal on September 15, 1975:

Nationally

‘Egyptian Ambassador held; PLO demands end to Pact’

MADRID, Spain (AP) — Palestinian guerillas occupied the Egyptian Embassy and the Arab League office in Madrid today and demanded that Egypt denounce its new Sinai agreement with Israel, local news agencies reported.”

“BEIRUT, Lebanon (AP) — Palestinian mediation averted a potentially explosive anti-government strike planned by leftist Moslems today, but Christian-Moslem fighting spread to Beirut. At least 20 more persons were reported killed in machine-gun battles Saturday night and Sunday in the northern city of Tripoli, the hills around it, and several Beirut suburbs. This increased the casualty toll since Sept. 3 to nearly 150 killed and twice that many wounded.”

‘First class mail delivery to improve’

“WASHINGTON (AP) — The Postal Service says that starting next month it will give at least as good service for a 10-cent stamp as it does now for a 13-cent airmail stamp.”

Locally

‘650 attend air show’

“An estimated 650 people attended the air show Sunday at the Clinton Aero Center” plus skydivers from Waynesville. Wilmington residents David Hale and John Pendry demonstrated radio-controlled model airplanes, and local resident Durwood Lewis was the announcer.
