.Two Young Film Stars Put
j New Furrows in Brow of Correspondent. » By DALE HARRISON, Associated Press Staff Writer. NEW YORK, October 23 —It. is be ing bruited around town that the art of the interview, once looked upon In this business as highly significant, is ^one with the wind, but we shall see what we shall see. In yesteryear the procedure was to beard some personage in-his den and lead him artfully to commit him self on the sub jects of the day, after which the c o r r e s pondent would retire to his typewriter and, in beautifully turned phrases, give the results to the waiting world. But today we have the movie cocktail party in- j terview. at which some rich em Tyrone Power. pioyer plays host to the ladies and gentlemen of the press with the idea of having said L. and O. meet famous personages in the employ of same, and write glowingly thereof. • Mr. Tyrone Power and Miss Alice Faye, two of the younger geniuses of •* the silver screen, sat with your corre spondent a few hours ago and were in terviewed to the music of clinking ice rubes in fancy tumblers. Your cor respondent, alive to his responsibility to the American public, tried with all ’ hi* might to keep his mind on the con versation, with the following results, if such they may be called: "Miss Faye and Mr. Power, please sit here.” he began, “we are just a news paperman and will not fawn upon you as the other guests are doing. This will be a great relief to you because we know you are simple folk at heart to whom fawning is distasteful.” • Miss Faye Tells All. Miss jraye said. wnen i. nave finished my career in pictures I intend to be a newspaper writer.” "The American public.” said your correspondent warmly, "awaits your literary contributions with uncon cealed impatience.” Mr. Power spoke: "I want to do eomething big—really big—in pictures.” "I am sure the film magnates will rote your work to jdate and give you a chance to do something big,” said the cor respondent. "I have always wanted to write,” interjected Miss Faye, fascinating ly beautiful in foxes and orchids. "Did you see me in-?” be ' gan Mr. Power, obviously anxious not to be side- Aliet r,„. tracked by Miss Faye's literary ambition. "Yes. indeed," broke in the cor respondent. “I have seen you in everything.” This was a falsehood, but the correspondent was not in a mood, unfortunately, to go into this no doubt fascinating phase of the progress of the cinema. “Do you have time to do much reading. Mr. Power?” Tyrone is Amused. * “I manage to do some,” the hand iome youth responded. "For Instance, I was highly amused recently in read ing in one of the magazines a story called 'The Life Story of Tyrone Power.’ ‘ "It was quite an article." Mr. Power j went on. “I am still chuckling over it. Just imagine! The ‘life story'’ of a fellow who is only 23 years old!” He laughed merrily. "The famous ‘Billy the Kid’ had a ** dozen life stories written about him,” the correspondent recalled, “and he was a mere 21 years old w’hen he died.” The correspondent is really very catty at heart. At this point Mr. Power noted that the interviewer was resplendent with a, flower in his lapel, and -said he would like one. “Allow me,” said the correspondent, plucking one from a vase that was directly in front of Mr. Power, “with | the compliments of our host.” The young man took the bloom in : k.1. .a__ J UaM 14- •cvvitomnlathrAlv --—-*- » ; Young Lady Gushes. At (that moment a young lady who had arrived at the table without hav ing been Invited—as this is apparently a free-and-easy country—began to ' gush. "Let me do it, Tyrone,” she cooed. | As she carefully placed the blossom in his buttonhole, she said: "This is j the happiest moment of my life.” (This positively is a verbatim quote.) Mr. Power then felt an urge to smoke. He took a cigarette from the case of the young lady and held it, expectantly in his fingers. The young ! * lady got the idea, found a match, i ■truck it, and the Power cigarette glowed in grateful acknowledgement. Miss Faye, who is mighty pretty, ■aid: "I feel that I should be given ■tronger roles—roles in which I can really act.” "Something really big. Is that it, Miss Faye?” asked the correspondent, Who was beginning to catch on. "That's it; something really big,” • Bhe smiled. (One sort of goes limp under the Faye smile.) "Of course. I shall sing as heretofore, but my big ambition is to really act.” "And be a newspaper writer," added ' the correspondent. "And be a newspaper writer,” echoed Alice hastily. D. C. HEALTH PROJECTS * IN SCHOOLS ANNOUNCED The District Tuberculosis Associa tion will carry on three health projects In the District schools during the com ing year, Mrs. Ernest R. Grant, man aging director of the association, an • nounced yesterday. The three projects involve the tu berculin tests for senior high school ■tudents, a health education institute for administrators and teachers and an essay prize contest for sixth grade pupils during November on "Why I Buy Christmas Seals.” All three have -* been sanctioned by the Board of Edu cation. Funds for the tuberculin tests and for X-ray photographs of the pupils’ chest* will come from the money de rived from sale of Christmas seals, Grant said. Presenting Four More Old Masters For the third week of its art appreciation program, The Star presents the paintings pictured above. Left to right, top, are Breughel's “Peasant Wedding" and Massys’ ”Banker and His Wife," and. below. Holbein's “Anne of Cleves” and Durer's "View of Trent.” They are classics of Northern European art. _•_ Four Masters of 16th Century Provide Art in Star Campaign Works of Holbein, Durer, Massys and Breughel Are Offered as Third Set of Reproductions in Program, FOUR great painters of- the early 16th century—Holbein, Durer, Massys and Breughel—are introduced today to followers of The Star's art appreciation campaign as the movement enters its third week. Presentation of their work as the third set in 48 famous paintings offered by The Star and the National Committee for Art Appreciation gives new impetus to a movement that has met with success on every hand in the Washington Aren. American art as it is today was* shown in the first set that opened the art project. From there, the color reproductions reverted to the Italian Renaissance and the birth of the “golden age” of painting in Florence, Italy. Now, the third set takes up the work of four other old masters who labored in Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands in the early part of the 16th century' and carried the spirit of the Renaissance into Northern Europe. Throughout the campaign all sets of pictures offered in previous weeks will remain available to those who wish to obtain them, either by mail or at the art booth on the first floor, of The Star Building. The pictures, printed by a new multi-color process, pre released in sets of four each week, at prices within the reach of every one. Organisations Hail Campaign. Not only has the campaign pene trated every walk of life in this terri tory but it has reached all so-called organized life—the churches, public, private and parochial schools, art schools, colleges and universities, clubs, commercial establishments and , parent-teacher associations. The reproductions and the lessons in art appreciation by Dr. Bernard j Myers of New York University that, accompany each set have evoked widespread ccfmmendation for their educational and cultural value, de- j velopment of art appreciation and stimulus to the movement designed ; to direct leisure time of the public at ; large into these fields. j Brief sketches df the paintings of fered during the third week of the campaign follow: . “Anne of Cleves” by Hans Holbein— this portrait so intrigued Henry VIII of England that he decided to make the girl his fourth wife. But he was intensely disappointed when he saw her and soon after the ceremony had the marriage annulled. When she was informed of the King's displeasure she swooned, for she expected to be executed as others of Henry's wives had been. However, Anne managed to escape with her head and was even pensioned, but Hans Holbein, the pop ular portraitist of Henry VIII s court, who had perpetrated the deception, was sharply rebuked. Holbein, most skillful of portrait painters, was also an excellent decorator and draughtsman, painter of frescoes and architect, jewerly designer and book illustrator, besides being a modeler and miniaturist. He ranks with Durer as the greatest of German painters. uaicr vuiui w.t “View of Trent” by Albrecht Durer— this watercolor is typical of Durer’s mastery of that difficult and exacting medium. Durer is Germany’s greatest painter, the first of his race to realize he was living in a new age. When he visited Italy he was amazed and impressed by the great accomplish ments of such masters as Leonardo, Michelangelo and Titian. Through the influence of Durer, the art of Northern Europe, within his own life time. was lifted out of the Middle Ages into the Renaissance. Like Leonardo da Vinci he was a man of universal genius, a goldsmith, an art critic, a writer and a supreme artist. He was undoubtedly the greatest master of the w'oodcut. So famous and so pop ular did Durer’s engravings become that he had to travel again to distant Italy to complain of widespread pla giarism. His sketches of buildings, landscapes, even of an animal or a flow'er, are among the most priceless treasures in the whole history of art. “The Banker and His Wife,” by Quentin Massys—in this picture the artist illustrates the tradition in Flem ish painting known as "the micro scopic point of view.” Detail and more detail, each one rendered per fectly, distinguishes his style. Care fuHy and faithfully, Massys painted each feature of the two faces and lavished no less care upon the tiniest visible object in the room. In his early years, he was a blacksmith and ironworker; then, falling in love with an artist's daughter, he turned to paint ing and became one of the masters of all time Two monarchs, King Philip II and Queen Elizabeth, bid against each other for "The Entombment," but the people of Antwerp refused to let it go. Bidding reached 40.000 florins ($50,000) for this picture Massys had sold for 300 florins. "The Peasant Wedding.” "The Peasant Wedding.” by Pieter Breughel, the Elder—this is a crowded canvas that is full of rustic merri ment. Before the time of Breughel, the subjects of art were limited to religious, historical or mythological subjects, and portraiture of the great or wealthy. Breughel was one of the first to concern himself almost entirely with humble folk. He lived with them, observed them, knew' them. For 400 years after his death he was for gotten, but recently a Breughel vogue has retrieved him from almost com plete oblivion and he is rapidly be coming one of the most popular of the old masters. These four pictures follow the sec* ond set, w'hich includes Da Vinci's immortal "Mona Lisa.” probably the most famous painting in the world; the great Michelangelo’s “Creation of Adam.” Titian's "Duke of Ferrara" and Raphael's “Madonna Tempi.” While the second set was enjoying a record sale last week, the first set continued to win favor with those who entered the campaign during the second week. The first group includes Winslow Homer's "Bahama Tornado,” Thomas Eakins'' "Lady With a Set ter,” Mary Cassatt's "Mother and Child” and Thomas Benton's “Lasso ing Horses.” These works are by modem Americans. Benton is the only living artist among them. PLANE TOUR SUPPORTS TREATIES RATIFICATION “Flying Caravan” of People’s Mandate to Visit Nations Pres . ent at Conference.

Menaced by rats, low-income fami lies of Washington are badly in need of either better building regulations or of a modern Pied Piper of Hamlin. In a radio address yesterday, Mrs. Helen Duey Hoffman, director of the Washington Housing Association, said the lack of regulations forcing land lords to repair fallen plaster was re sponsible for the tenants’ dilemma. "Washington’s housing shortage has made it necessary to rent out many houses that are over 50 per cent dan gerous and should be torn down," Mrs. Hoffman contended. The plague of rats, she said, has resulted from the lack of upkeep of properties by land lords. “Cases of children having been bitten are common," she added. BURNS 19 PARTS AIR?
