less than SM.Md. This h the
value pat upon a one-cent
magenta British Guiana stamp
of UN by its owner, Mrs. Pas
cal Costa Seals, wife of the
late M. Hind, who during his
lifetime possessed one of the
most valuable stamp collections
in the world.
The stamp is roughly com
posed from ordinary printers’
type and is the only one of its
kind known to be in existence
at present It was printed in a
newspaper office In George
town, Demerara, as a make
shift until the next steamer
from London could bring fresh
supplies. In 1876 a 14-year-old
schoolboy found this stamp hid
den away in an attic amongst
a bundle of old, forgotten let
ters. Liking its color, he de
cided to add it to his collec
tion. Later he sold it to a
stamp collector for six shill
ings ($1.50).
Some years afterward this
collector sold his entire collec
tion for $625 to Thomas Rld
path, of Liverpool. From that
day on the lone British Guiana
stamp soared in value. Count
Philippe von Ferrari, once re
nowned collector bought It for
$775 from Ridpath. The rarity
of the issue having been es
tablished, Hind was forced to
pay $36,715 in 1922 when the
Ferrari collection was disposed

ROMANCE AGAIN CALLS
FOR HANDSOME STARS
Girls’ Hearts Throb Once More for Valentino Type of Player,
So Studios Are Out for Good-Looking Leading Man
By DAN THOMAS
(NBA Service Staff Correspondent)
Hollywood—The matinee idol is
coming into his own again.
Swinging back toward the pre
talkie conception of male stars,
Hollywood execs are looking for
young men who they believe can
compare favorably with the Ru
dolph Valentinos, John Gilberts and
Ramon Novarros of yesterday.
When the influx of sound caused
a complete upheaval in the movie
industry along about 1928, a death
kneel was rung for the handsome
and romantic screen heroes. At the
same time the public was acclaim
ing the addition of dialogue to pic
tures, it also displayed a definite
taste for new types of leading men.
Two distinct classes of masculine
stars captured the fancy of au
diences almost overnight. One class
Included character actors such as
the late Will Rogers, Wallace Berry,
Lionel Barrymore and Charles
Laughton. The other class included
rugged, two-fisted lovers like Clark
Gable, Jimmy Cagney and Spencer
Tracy.

No More Rough Stuff.
Today, however, American girls
again are yearning lor good looks
and touch ol tenderness In their
screen heroes. Cave man stuff Is out.
That has been proven by the re
awakened Interest In George Brent
and Joel McCrea, both very much
on the handsome side ol the lence,
and the cheers lilted lor such new
comers as Robert Taylor, Fred Mac
Murray, Cesar Romero, Errol Flynn,
Ian Hunter, Warren Hull and Paul
Cavanaugh.
These men are getting the choice
roles these days. Ever since he ap
peared with Garbo In "The Painted
Veil,” George Brent has been In
demand lor highly romantic parts.
Joel McCrea recently staged a
strong comeback In "Barbary Coast”
and went Irom that Into "Splendor,”
with Miriam Hopkins.
Robert Taylor, who besides being
romantically handsome also can
warble a note or two, reached new
heights In “Broadway Melody ol
1936.”

Fred MacMurray came Into the
spcftlight last spring as Claudette
Colbert’s leading man In ‘The
Gilded Lily.” Then he wooed Kath
arine Hepburn In "Alice Adams. And
now he’s back with Miss Colbert In
"The • Bride Comes Home.” Not a
bad record.
Cesar Romero first came into
prominence as a suitor lor Marlene
Dietrich In ‘The Devil Is a Woman,”
and has Jumped from one romantic
role to another ever since.
Tall, slender and extremely hand
some, Errol Flynn Is playing the
swashbucking Captain Blood In the
picture at that title. But studio
executives plan to build him as an
out and out romanticist.
Similar plans also are being
made for Ian Hunter, who recently
played with Bette Davis in "The
Girl From Tenth Avenue,” Warren
Hull who was Margaret Lindsay’s
leading man In "Personal Maid’s
Secret,” and Paul Cavanaugh who
was with Mae West In "doin’ to

country and the people prefer
anud use Ethiopia and it Is al
most Identically that in Amar
hic, their language. Transliter
ated It Is “Ityopya.” The reason
for the preference Is clear.
Ethiopia Is from the Greek,
meaning land of the burnt-face
people and as such was used by
earliest classical Greek writers
to refer to all lands Inhabited
by dark faced or black people.
The Ethiopians are dark
skinned, their complexion rang

On bis deathbed in Decem
ber, 1913, Menelik 11 designat
ed his favorite grandson, LldJ
Yasu, then sixteen years of age
as his successor to the throne
of Ethiopia. Three years later,
because of an attempt on LldJ
Yasu’s part to substitute Islam
for Christianity as' the Ethio
pian State religion, the con
gress of chiefs deposed him. In
his place they chose, as titular
head of the state, Menelik’s el
derly daughter, Zauditu; and
as Prince Regent and heir ap
parent to the throne, the 35
year old Ras Tafari.
Ras Tafari was the son of
Menelik’s cousin, Ras Maccon
en, foremost among the chiefs
supporting Menelik as King of
Kings; and at the death of his
father, succeeded him as gov
ernor of the wealthy coffee
growing province of Harar. The
features of Ras Tafari first ap
peared on the Ethiopian post

on the French State Printing
Works’ productions of Septem
ber 5, 1928. Shortly afterward
five denominations of the lat
ter series were given an over
print to mark his installation
as Negous, or King of Shoa,
on October 7, 1928.
On April 2, 1930, Empress
Zauditu died under suspicious
circumstances. The next day
Ras Tafari was proclaimed Em

November 2, was crowned in

Edna May Oliver and James
Oleason, that inimitable screen
team, mix hilarious comedy with
tense melodrama while solving the
answer to RKO-Radio’s latest mys
tery thriller, "Murder on a Honey

the New Garden theater.
Miss Oliver plays an angular,
snoopy schoolmarm of the 1890 vin
tage who is suspicious that every
death is a murder, while Mr. Glea
son portrays a fast-talking, but
rather obtuse police inspector.
Lola Lane, as an ambitious Holly

Harry Ellerbee are delightful as the
honeymoon couple. George Meek<|*

role and Morgan Wallace is good
