something of a musical prodigy from
the age of 3.
“She started singing and playing
the piano then,” Mrs. Nylen ex
plained, “and a few years later also
was playing the trumpet, French
horn, as well as dancing. She gave
numerous recitals.”
Disavowing any ambitions to at

a soprano, said she will be very
happy if she obtains a radio contract

full skirt, and long, full sleeves tied
at the wrist. She will wear a pic
