In Books, Art, Politics Temple Bailey Comes to Town—Lincoln Ellsworth, the Explorer, Is Vice Presi dent of Great Britain Poetry Society. BY ROBERT CRAWFORD IN THE Springtime when all Wash ington is gay and vernal, decked out in foliage of many hues, with flowering trees and shrubbery in bloom and great beds of red, yellow and purple tulips on the White House lawn and In the parks flaunt them selves and nod in the breeze. Temple Bailey comes to town for a breathing spell. She settles herself in some ho tel where she can look out on the trees and green lawns and enjoy her self In the city she loves best, where she spent many happy girlhood days and where many of her dreams came true. The plots of several of her most successful novels were laid here. For the benefit of those devoted young readers of Miss Bailey, let us tell you that she is charming looking. neither short not tall, neither stout nor thin; her hair is dark, arranged softly about her face and her eyes are a greenish blue and full of fun. She Is not temperamental . . . likes golf . . . plays bridge . . . likes people and horses and has but one hobby— writing books—and dreams of a mas terpiece in the offing. It must be added that her mother has always been a kind of inspiration and incentive to her and is her boon companion. Dur ing her father's lifetime she read with him and was allowed to browse through his library at will; it being a fine one, she was reared with a taste for only the best in literature. She Typewrites— With Two Fingers. Most people like to know how their favorite author dies the deed ... for their Information, Miss Bailey says she does it all on the typewriter . . . composes as she goes, makes but few notes, and unravels her plot as she proceeds. She goes to her typewriter after her coffee at nine in the morning and picks away until twelve. Being blessed with deep concentration, she is oblivious to the life going on about her and to interrupt her is not a crime. To find any one in these hectic times so absolutely normal and restful as Miss Bailey, seems a dream in itself. She was born down in Petersburg, Va„ of New England parents and an cestry; her voice is Southern, her pronunciation a bit so, and her man ner wholly of the South. When she comes forward to shake hands the cares and worries of the day just na turally disappear as her infectious smile radiates peace and content ment. She is somewhat wary of news men since an interview she gave up on Nantucket one Summer when she was quite taken in, and still laughs at the joke which was all on her. She tells a funny story on herself with as much gusto as if it were on the other chan. Miss Baiiev Tells With Gusto A Joke on Herself. Coming in from a brisk walk one morning—she is fond of walking, too—she found two young reporters from a Boston paper bent on inter viewing her. Guests were expected shortly and she had very little time. One of the reporters plied questions volubly, principally on the subject of ‘ her reasons for not hating married; while the other seemed to be indus triously taking notes. When she rose to end the interview she told them they must bring the copy for her to blue pencil before it was used. In an hour or two they returned with the copy and she found it quite as it should be—no need of changing. BUt horror of horrors, when the story ap peared there were no sensational headlines, but several most sensa tional cartoons of her, one which pic tured her dressed in mannish clothes with a fedora hat, hands in pockets, striding along and a “keep-your-dis tance look" as she eyed the other sex. As Miss Bailey is extremely feminine lr dress, liking frou-frou ruffles and all those gadgets, it was funny. Said to Be Highe«t Paid Woman Writer. Miss Bailey is said to be the highest paid woman writer in the world for single stories. All her novels are serialized before being printed in book form. There are no strings at . tached to her serials, however, after their appearance in the magazines. It is then entirely with her and her publishers when they shall appear in book form. Her novels have been translated into French, Spanish, Scandinavian and several other lan guages, the terms of which she ar ranges herself. And she will laugh ingly say that this is where her Yan kee forebears come in. She makes a good contract but says she has some times felt she was offered more than she deserved. She also says the plots of her stories are not racks on which to hang isms, or philosophies or social problems, but are to entertain and amuse and put a wholesome taste in ' the reader’s mouth. It really must be true that men and women after work ing hard all day like to relax and get away from the worries and problems • of their own lives. The miner likes to get the sound of the drill out of his ears, and the machinist the whir of the wheels. The demand for Miss Bailey's stor ies among all classes of readers is shown by the difficulty one finds in getting them at the public libraries. A few days ago out of twenty of them in a branch library there was not one to be had. Up in Boston they did not take any particular notice of her be fore she wrote the ‘‘Tin Soldier.” That was in 1919, shortly after which she was invited to become a member of the Authors' Club. And it was this story that France requested to have translated for the war library in Paris. Miss Bailey receives a large fan mall from all sorts and conditions of men and women; some criticizing or com mending her books, others sending manuscript to be read or asking ad vice as to the best way to become writers. Hearing that she is quite do mestic they consult her on household affairs and whether a woman is hap pier married or single—a question she turns over to some married friend. Her Washington Novel. She tells an amusing story of an Incident in her last novel, ' Fair as the Moon,” the scene of which was laid in Washington. One of the things she enjoyed Immensely in days gone by when she lived here was the old ferry boat that plied between the Cap ital and Alexandria. She remembered moonlight rides on it down the river when the old Potomac to her romantic young eyes seemed like the golden stream of life, so she gave the hero of "Fair as the Moon,” a trip down the river on the old boat. The novel had no sooner appeared than she re ceived several letters in her fan mall asking her if she did not know that that old tub had not run in years. Right there she told the world, ro mancing was the privilege of a novel ist—though frankly she did not know the ferry was no more. In "En chanted Ground," which was written in Florida, is a spotted cat—commonly known as a calico cat; Miss Bailey put him quite in the limelight in her story, only to receive letters from pro fessors and students of natural his tory’, telling her that a male cat of that species was never marked in that way, and asking why she called the animal, ‘‘it,” “she" and "he.” all in the same book. She answered, “just a bit of poetic license.” | Thrilled by the Grelt Explorer. What would you do if you saw a conquering hero who had been pro claimed by the whole world for his i deeds of bravery and for his contri butions to science, suddenly appear I right before your eyes and ask you a simple question of direction? Your eyes would certainly open wider. And that is what happened to a young woman in the National Geographic Society not long ago when Mr. Lincoln Ellsworth, back from the South Pole, was in Washington to receive the Hub bard Gold Medal and lecture before the Geographic Society. The young woman had to look twice before she could believe that the un . assuming—all heroes are that way— ; courteous gentleman, rather tall, with ! graying hair, skin tanned by the sea ; ind hardened by the winds of the Ant I arctic, and with interesting blue eyes, was the distinguished explorer In I whose rescue Americans, particularly, | had been so interested. In his delightful book, “Search,” j published in 1932, Mr. Ellsworth speaks ' of the quickening of the blood he re j reived as a boy when he read “Ranch ! Life,” “The Hunting Trail” and other books of the late Theodore Roosevelt and Dr. Fridjhof Nansen’s “Farthest ! North.” He says his boyhood dream was, "Exploration beyond the utter most rim of discovery”—something he has accomplished in his trips to the North and South Poles. By the way, Mme. Slavko Grouitch, who made a wonderful reputation dur ing the World War for her war work in the Central European countries, and whose husband was sometime American Minister to Serbia, was, be fore her marriage, companion to Mr. Ellsworth and his sister, after the j death of their mother. As Mabel Dun lop. she traveled with the two children and devoted herself to their education and training. She speaks of the ex plorer when a small boy of 8 as being like a Peter Pan. fragile, but most energetic and determined. Though Aviator and Explorer, He Likes Poetry. Notwithstanding the medals Mr Ellsworth has received from this and other countries, he has one honor which is very near to his heart—he Is vice president of the Poetry Society of Great Britain. Many of his boyhood dreams—his castles in Spain—have ! been realized, but one of his most | cherished possessions is his chalet in I Sw itzerland, high up on Mount Pila ! tus. which he Inherited from his father. Lansburg Castle is one of the his toric castles of Europe in which men have lived for a thousand years. It is perched high on a butt* which rises up out of the green hills and is reached by a tortuous winding rpafl which passes through tunnels formed by the dense foliage of trees. One crosses a drawbridge to enter the court yard with its green maple and chest nut trees and gorgeously hued gera niums relieving the somberness of the gray battlemented walls. In the cas tle is the wonderful collection of 72 clocks, which were the hobby of the senior Mr. Ellsworth.
