In Books, Art, Politics Dethroned Royalty of Europe Turns to America for Asylum; Democracy Slogan of the Hour By ROBERT CRAWFORD. ' The United States since the 18th century has been the melting pot for the downtrodden of the earth, for the oppressed of every country on the globe and the asylum for dethroned royalty. The latter have added a tone and a piquant tang to the crucible, and all have received the generous hospitality of these democratic shores, but to royalty especially has the glad hand of the socially elect been extended, for the touch of ermine is soft and has always appealed to the leaders of American society who in years of tranquillity spend much of their time and money abroad. In this year of national elections the word “democracy” is italicised and printed in large black letters. Even the latest royal arrivals here talk b great deal about democracy. The sad-faced Empress Zita, consort of the late Emperor Charles of Austro-Hungary, and mother of Archduke Otto, on her arrival in New York a few days ago announced that site was a sincere believer in the future of democracy in Europe. This was a great admission coming as it did from one who during her short reign observed and demanded the most austere court etiquette—in a court noted tor tne observance ot the-i pomp and ceremony of feudal days. Empress Zita Proves Heroine. The Empress, who seems to have won the hearts and admiration of those who have met her, In her exile and poverty showed that su perb fortitude which has made her outstanding as a heroine. Rearing her large family in spartan sim plicity, doing with their assistance the manual work of the household, She has instilled in them that no blesse oblige that is so strongly ex hibited in Archduke Otto. Archduke Otto, claimant to the 1.000-year-old crown of Charlemagne and heir to the Hapsburg dynasty which ruled for 600 years in Aus tria, announced when he came to ; the States for his first visit a few months ago that he had come to study democratic institutions—and he naively remarked that the only place he had found real democracy was in the White House, and the most democratic person he had met was the President of the United States. The gorgeous entertaining of New York society had surprised him a bit, and the dignified sim plicity of the President's life in the Executive Mansion of the richest nation in the world puzzled him. Other Members Of Royalty Arrive. Prince Sixtus of Bourbon-Parma, concert of the fleeing Grand Duchess Charlotte of Luxembourg, whose little country is now occupied by the Hitler armies, is the brother of Empress Zita. He arrived in this country last week with his six chil dren and is the guest of Mr. Joseph Davies, sometime Ambassador to Belgium and Luxembourg, and now a special assistant in the Depart ment of State. The royal prince and his family are occupying the Davies estate on Long Island. Other refugee children of royal blood to arrive about the same time were the little Mountbattens, cousins of the royal family of Great Britain. The British children are guests of the family of Lady Nancy Astor down in Virginia. It was just before the close of the revolution that royalty began com- j ing to America and it is interesting that the first arrival was a future king of England. Prince William Henry, third son of George III, w’ho on the death of George IV became William IV, in 1830. reigning until 1837, when Victoria, great-grand mother of the present ruler, became Queen. Prince William Henry was a gay macaroni and finally had to be confined to his ship until it sailed—he was too democratic. In 1798 the Duke of Kent, fourth son of George III and father of Victoria, stopped off in the new Republic, but was not royally re ceived. A year earlier Louis Philippe of Prance—who, by the wav, is among those present in that delightful movie. ‘‘All This and Heaven Too”—came as an exile to this country and through the hospitality of Gouverneur Morris, who, while Minister to France be came deeply attached to Louis' mother, the Duchess of Orleans, placed several hundred pounds to his credit, thus enabling him to travel through the country. He visited Gen. Washington at Mount Vernon and spent several years at Bardstow’n, Ky., where he taught mathematics, geography and danc ing. He carried with him a pochette, a tiny pocket fiddle which he played for his dancing class. Some of the great-grandmothers of children of the present generation were among his pupils. Prince de Joinville Twice in America. The Prince de Joinville, a son of Louis Philippe, was twice in Amer ica. The last time in 1861 w'hen he served on the staff of Gen. McClel lan during the War Between the States. In passing: It was De Joinville w'hen 23 years old who commanded the frigate La Belle Poule, which brought the remains of Napoleon Bonaparte from St. Helena to France. Only a few weeks ago the man whom his ad mirers call the “Little Corporal," conqueror of France, stood at the tomb of Napoleon. Several Bonapartes came and lived in this country for several years. Among them the Emperor's brother Jo/?ph. once King of Spain, and his youngest brother Jerome, who married the lovely Betsey Pat terson. During the last hundred years America has had many royal visitors, but perhaps there w as none wfho so thoroughly won all hearts as King George VI and Queen Elizabeth of England. They w’ere truly democratic. And now we, too. boast of a charming titled American citizen, Mr. William C. Bullitt, who was made a Knight of the Grape by the wine growers of Southern France. The honor was conferred with royal pomp and state. Miss Hamm Visiting The McKenzies Miss Wilma Hamm, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George E. Hamm of Beaumont, Tex., is visiting Mr. and Mrs. Charles A.

Hollywood Sayg: “FEATURE YOUR BEST FEATURE” Every "overoge" woman has, on occasion, faced herself in her mirror and made disparaging remarks otout the shope of her nose, the size of her eyes, oi her hair's stubborn refusal to curl. She MAY be fishing for compliments — provided the right mole is within hearing distance — but usually she means it. Privately she thinks she's a mess and longingly wishes she looked like Ginger Rogers, Carole Lombard, Iren* Dunne or some other favored Hollywood lovely. At which exoet moment, the favored Hollywood lovely may be storing into HER mirror and regretting the shope of her nose, the size of her eyes, or her hair's refusal to curl. There's no such thing os a perfect beauty, not even in Hollywood. Authority for this icono clastic stotement is Mel Berns, head of the make-up depart ment at RKO Radio Studios Says Mr. Berns: "The so-called 'perfect beauty'—if it did exist—would be in no particu lar demand in H ol I y w o a d. What's wanted is the unusual face that immediately stands out and is remembered. Wise stars—though they may pri vately bemoan their imperfec tions—learn to feature their best feotures—ond often a clever star will feature her most IRREGULAR feature to achieve thot elusive something thof makes her a personality." Among the stars in Holly wood who have featured their most irregular feature are Katharine Hepburn with high cheekbones, Greta Gorbo, whose heavy hair is straight, ond who made the long, straight bob famous. Carole Lombard has a high forehead, hollow cheeks— so she boldly sweeps her hair off her forehead, and occents the hollows. So read your future in the stars. Don't bewail your bod features Capitalize your best ones. Do it right, and your own private world will forget your button nose, pugnacious jaw or long, lean face . . . and procloim you a "perfect beauty."
