Anderson Jardine, the “poor man’s parson,” told his Dar- lington congregation at Durham, Eng land, upon his re turn from Chateau de Cande, in Monts, France. There he had married Ed ward, duke of Wind sor, and Mrs. Wallis Warfield, in the re ligious ceremony of the Church of Eng land, despite the dic tum of the church that the history- Duchess of Windsor making couple be denied the rites. Married earlier in the same day in a civil ceremony performed by the mayor of Monts, the Duke and “Wally” left on their honeymoon and are now at Wasserleonburg cas tle in lower Austria. Sixteen principal guests were present in the chateau when Mayor Mercier, pronouncing the English names with difficulty, and speaking in French, performed the civil ceremony and pronounced the duke and Wallis man and wife. Vicar Jardine, who had volunteered his services, recited the solemn reli gious rites as prescribed by the church, the duke placed the ring on the duchess’ fourth finger, and they knelt on white silk cushions while the minister prayed. Through out the entire service the famous organist, Marcel Dupre, played soft ly. The duchess, who cannot be called “her royal highness,” wore a gown of Wallis blue and the corre spondents privileged to be present were agreed that she was a beau tiful, gracious and serene woman. The Chateau de Cande, owned by Mr. and Mrs. Charles Bedaux of New York, was lavishly decorated with flowers. Wedding presents were numerous, of course, and some of the richest were sent by members of the British royal fam ily. Downing Street, determined that the popularity of the former king, heightened by the pathos of his role of “under dog,” should not damage the prestige of the Crown and the church, asked newspapers to clamp down on publicity con cerning the rebel vicar. The post master general ordered all stamps bearing the likeness of Edward de stroyed. Not a foot of the special films or newsreels taken at Monts will be permitted to show in the United Kingdom. Long-Lost Airliner Found on Utah Mountainside ON December 15, 1936, Pilot S. J. Samson, operating a Western Air Express liner from Los Angeles to Salt Lake City, with four passen gers, co - pilot and stewardess aboard, reported by his radio to the caretaker of the airport at Milford, Utah, and asked that his position be checked. His voice was never again heard. Now after nearly six months the wreckage of the air plane has been found high in the Wasatch mountains, 25 miles south east of Salt Lake City and 35 miles off the regular airline course. So shattered was the plane that the largest single piece of debris was a part of a propeller. Bodies of all aboard were buried 25 to 50 feet in the drifts of snow. With a rich jewelry shipment re ported to have been aboard the ship, a guard was placed around the wreckage and given orders to “shoot on sight” until the wreck should be recovered; four souvenir hunters were shot at three times. Ronald Dyche, of the national for est service, who aided in the long search, revealed how close the air travelers came to escaping death. “If they had just been flying 25 feet higher,” he said, “they might have made it over the peak and possibly reached safety.” Four men, natives of the moun tainous region, accidentally discov ered the lost plane; they announced that they would seek to share a sl,- 000 reward posted by Western Air Express. Congress May Be at It Until Winter’s Snow Flies T> EADING the election returns of of an overwhelming Democratic landslide last November, Charles Michelson, publicity director of the Democratic national committee, said: “We will regret this.” The great party majorities in both houses now show signs of splitting into regional and economic blocs, which is exactly what he was afraid of. Biggest wedge in forcing the split among the party ranks was, of course, the President’s bill for the reorganization of the Supreme court. This led a long list of bills, many of them expected to evoke heated con troversies in congress, which threat ened to postpone adjournment to mid - winter. Indeed, it was believed by some that if part of the program were not postponed, this session would run continuously into the next, beginning in January. Besides the Court bill, there are to be acted upon measures for the establishment of wage and hour standards for interstate industries, the curtailment of tax dodging, re organization of the executive branch of the government, helping farm tenants, conservation of soil, water power resources and housing. Congress, Under Pressure, Passes Work Relief Bill Administration leaders, from the President down, “turned the heat” on the rebellious mem bers of the house, and the latter sul lenly gave in and passed the billion and a half dollar work relief bill about as Mr. Roosevelt and Harry Hopkins wanted it. One after an other the restrictive amendments earmarking $505,000,000 of the total for projects of a solid type, flood control and highways, which had been adopted in committee of the whole, were called up again and voted down by substantial majori ties. The final vote by which the measure was sent on to the senate was 323 to 44. Tax-Dodging Investigated by Congressional Body 'T'AX dodging by wealthy men ana women, excoriated by President Roosevelt in a special message, is going to be investigated speedily by a joint committee of congress. The reso lution for the in quiry was intro duced in the senate by Senator Pat Har rison of Mississippi, chairman of the fi nance committee; and in the house by Robert L. Doughton of North Carolina, chairman of the ways and means committee. The in- Sen. Harrison vestigation is designed both to focus public attention on the extent of the alleged tax evasion and to provide congress with information neces sary for the drafting of corrective legislation. Jean Harlow, Blond Actress, Dies at 26 TEAN HARLOW, one of the most •J glamorous characters in life to millions of Americans, died of uremic poisoning in Hollywood. The impetuous actress who started the platinum blonde craze was only twenty - six, but she had known tragedy. Born Harlean Carpentier in Kansas City, she came to the movie capital in 1927. She had been twice divorced and once widowed. Her second husband, Paul Bern, film executive, shot and killed him self two months after their wedding. At the time of her death she was being seen frequently in the com pany of suave William Powell. 11 Duce Shows von Blomberg His Mediterranean Strength CERTAIN British and Frenchnews papers of late have seen fit to “pooh-pooh” the naval strength of II Duce in the Mediterranean. It is 11 Duce not altogether im possible that this de precation may have made Adolf Hitler a little uneasy about his alliance with the Italians. So Premier Mussolini invited Field Marshal Wer ner von Bomberg down to the blue Southern ocean to see for himself. More than 70 sub- marines were massed as the feature of a mock combat off Naples. The grand fleet of 150 warships sum moned for the maneuvers went through their exercieses at a mini mum speed of 30 miles an hour. The German registered delight continually as II Duce pointed out to him every phase of the sham battle. Italian officers boasted: “On ly Fascist Italy can mobilize so many underwater craft at a mo ment’s notice.” The day before, Galeazzo Ciano, Italy’s foreign minister, had in formed the British ambassador, Sir Eric Drummond, that Italy accept ed in principle all points in the British proposals to assure the safe ty of international naval patrols off Spain. It was understood that the Nazis had tendered the same ap proval. The three main points of the Brit ish proposal were: That both Span ish belligerents be required to give formal solemn assurances that they will respect international patrol ships; that safety zones for patrol ships be established at certain speci fied ports of the two belligerent parties; and that the four naval powers engaged in patrol duties consult each other on measures to be taken if any of their patrol ships should be attacked. The Italians and Nazis wanted the third point to per mit any ship attacked to retaliate at once. But they weren’t insistent. C. I. O. Considers Organization of Civil Service Workers TOHN L. LEWIS, whose Commit tee for Industrial Organization might have been expected to retal iate against the drive recently opened against it by William Green and the American Fed eration of Labcr, admitted that C. I. O. may c-nter the field of civil service. The move, which has been discussed by Lewis and his as sociates for several weeks, would be in direct opposition to two established A. | t,;' ' t ’’ r. John L. Lewis F. of L. unions. The new C. I. O. union would in clude all types of government work ers outside of the military and semi military departments. Its potential membership lies between 2,000,000 and 3,000,000. Meanwhile there was plenty of action elsewhere on the labor front. In Chicago, the Chicago Federation of Labor, an A. F. of L. associate, ousted 27 local unions, comprising a membership of 20,000 to 30,000, charging that they had been active in behalf of C. I. O. Also in Chicago, Mayor Edward J. Kelly ordered the plant of the Republic Steel corporation evacuat ed. The company, in the throes of a C. I. O. strike, was housing non-striking employees in the plant, that their work might continue; such housing of employees is forbid den by city ordinance. It was at the Republic plant that seven strikers were killed and 90 wounded when they attacked police on guard a short time ago. It was reported that two who took part in the strikers’ attack admitted their group had been or ganized on a military basis, and had been drilled in practice for the drive for two days before it was made. In Detroit, the Ford Brotherhood of America, Inc., was organized with a reported 7,000 members signed in two days, as an answer to attempts of C. I. O.’s United Auto mobile Workers’ Union to unionize Ford. Byrd W. Scott, a Ford ma chinist for 20 years, explained: “The F. B. A. was started by myself, John B. McDowell, Benjamin Love and a number of Ford employees who have worked for the company from ten to twenty years. The or ganization was formed because we wanted an independent labor organ ization, not one affiliated with any national union.” New Cabinet Seeks Peace Among Japanese Factions GENERAL HAYASHI’S semimili tary government of Japan was forced to resign by the major politi cal parties, and Emperor Hirohito Prince Konoe summoned Prince Fumimaro Konoe, president of the house of peers, to form a new cabinet. This the prince pro ceeded to do, and he was meeting with almost complete success in finding men who would ac cept office. Tempo rarily he had trouble in getting a finance minister. The new government in cludes representatives of the big Seiyukai and Minseito parties and is considered, therefore, a national coalition cabinet. Presumably it is committed to a large army and navy, a strong foreign policy and drastic administrative reforms. Ten Priests Arrested as Nazis Open Fight on Church TEN Roman Catholic priests were arrested as the dissention between the Nazi government and the church was fanned to a white heat, culminating in several fights in Munich. Priests replied spiritedly to charges of immorality within their ranks—charges made by Min ister of Propaganda Goebbels in re ply to a verbal attack upon the Nazis by Cardinal Mundelein of Chi cago. Hitler, in a speech at Regensburg, declared; “It is not God who di vides us, but human beings. The Almighty has blessed our work; therefore, it cannot be destroyed.” Priests read their congregations the answer they drafted to the immorality charges. It declared that of 25,635 priests in Germany only 58 are involved in immorality charges, or “less than V* of 1 per cent, or one priest in every 500.” John D. Rockefeller Leaves Granddaughter His Estate JOHN D. ROCKEFELLER, who died May 23, left his residuary estate, estimated at $25,000,000 in trust for his granddaughter, Mrs. Margaret Strong De Cuevas, her two young children, Elizabeth and John, and the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research. The will was filed in the Westchester county sur rogate’s court at White Plains, N. Y. Mrs. De Cuevas lives in Lake wood, N. J., and Paris. She mar ried the Marquis George De Cuevas in 1927, and is the daughter of the deceased Bessie Rockefeller Strong, whose husband, Dr. Charles August us Strong, is a former professor of psychology at the University of Chi cago, heavily endowed with Rock efeller money. He now lives in Italy. According to the final codicil, John D. Rockefeller, Jr., falls heir to the personal effects of America’s first billionaire, who wanted to live to be one hundred and missed it by two years, dying at ninety-eight. THE COOLIDGE EXAMINER Beguiling Silks This Summer By CHERIE NICHOLAS YARDS and yards and yards of entrancing silk sheers will go floating and billowing through the evening mode this summer. Airy fairy, vaporous, frothy and trans parent tulles, nets, organzas, chif fons, marquisettes, mousseline de soies and other as filmy fabrics have an importance this season such as they have not achieved in years. The vast yardage that goes into the making of the new romantic full skirted dance frocks is almost un believable. Certain Paris dressmak ers are using as much as forty yards for a single gown—the type (slim bodice and voluminous skirt over stiff petticoats) that "us mod erns” regarded as belonging to quaint century-past scenes, but scarcely expected to see revived in our own day and generation. Yet here they are dancing before your very eyes into the current style pic ture. The skirts of these picturesque gowns vary, from floor-touching to the very new ballerino type. Noth ing in the way of a dance frock so startled the world of fashion this season as the appearance of the waltz frock which Schiaparelli brought forth. Now that we are getting used to the idea, this sou brette silhouette which caused such a sensation at the openings is de veloping into a big vogue among the younger dancing set. The frock centered in the group illustrated plays up the new favorite. It is made of white mousseline de soie exquisitely detailed with tiny tucks on the waist and wee buttons that fasten at the back. Some of the more informal waltz frocks are often of printed silk with perhaps shirred fullness at the waist line like a girdle or with flaring pleats in the peasant skirt. The bodice is neat and slim at the waist COSTUME ACCENTS By CIIEKIE NICHOLAS It’s a daisy, she is a daisy—get ting our pronouns somewhat con fused —but perhaps it would be bet ter to study this picture of a modish young miss and figure it out for yourself. The soft white petals with fluffy yellow gold centers of the most American of flowers, form the crown of a charming hat by Jean King. A rough natural straw braid of circular weave is the brim, and the hat is worn tilted slightly over one eye. A Victorian scroll mono craft pin beautifully wrought in gold, tunes to the glinting gold high lights in the straw of the hat as it clasps a sweetly feminine jabot made of the daintiest of dainty val edging. The secret that the young woman pictured would tell you is that carefully selected flattering ac cessories play a big part in the fine art of dress. Doubles for Evening Detachable sheer silk overskirts in evening costumes sometimes do double duty as evening wraps. Sailor Most Popular The sailor hat is the most popu lar shape in Paris. with demure square neckline in front and cunning short puff sleeves. Not that all party dresses are full skirted, but the fragile sheers and gay silk prints certainly do make up beautifully in full-skirted ver sions. The gown to the right and to the left in the picture demonstrates the effectiveness of sheer material for the evening mode. The lovely sum mery redingote model shows up the exquisiteness of transparent mate rials to a nicety. It is designed of two tones of chiffon—green over yel low, with ties at the neckline and back waistline. A brown orchid cor sage adds the final accent to an artful color study. If there is one type of dress that is running away with the honors more so than the redingote styles it is the bolero costume. Not only are the redingote and the bolero im portant daytime features but they are just as significant throughout the evening mode. Here, to the left in the picture, is a lovely bolero dress for summer night, moonlight dancing under the stars. White silk marquisette is the chosen medium for this pretty ensemble. Large floral appliques on the bolero and the skirt add color glory to the scene. Silk sheers featured for evening gowns are also suggested in dark colors, the latest being bold and glamorous plaid transparencies or stripes if you prefer. Triple sheers are also shown in luscious plain col ors or in exotic prints. Some of the silk marquisettes are flock-dotted or embroidered. Clever and ornate trimmings that accent the width of swirling hem lines include bands of contrasting colors, full stiff ruchings, borders of delicate lace, sprays of natural looking flowers positioned effective ly, also scalloped or picoted edges. © Western Newspaper Union. GRADUATES SHOULD THINK OF GLOVES By CHERIE NICHOLS Gloves have always been a mark of sophistication. If this year’s crop of sweet girl graduates realized that, there would be a rush for the glove counter. Most of the time, we are so concerned over the big items, like the dress, that we forget about the things that go-with. those little tell-tale touches. Most schools require a simple, youthful white dress. The majority of these are the short-sleeved, gar den-party variety. In the prep and high schools, they are almost infor mal evening dresses. Such formal ity with no gloves? Your hands will look much prettier when accepting your diploma if they are well gloved in snow-white glace kid. There is such a variety of little short formal gloves in the shops that you should have fun choosing the pair that particularly suits your dress. And don’t forget gloves for the spring proms. It’s not so much the basic costume as the finishing that makes a well-dressed woman. Gloves are indispensable to even the most divine evening dress. Nude hands are fast fading out of the picture. You must look feminine and romantic these days. And don't you feel a lot more dressed up when you wear gloves? You can indulge your taste for long ones or very short ones as both are correct. Evening Fashions Fashions for evening, in contrast to daytime, are elaborate, very for mal and decollete. Skirts just touch the floor, although you’ll see some of the new ankle-length dance frocks introduced at the Paris midseason openings. Colorful Corset The color contagion has spread to corsets and there is a youthful corselette available in all the better stores which may be ordered dyed in any one of a dozen colors to match your evening gown or your new suit. 'Way Back When By JEIANNE AMERICA’S NO. 1 LOVER WAS AN OIL DRILLER CLARK GABLE was little differ ent from any other small town boy. Born in Cadiz, Ohio, in 1900, and later living in Hopedale, Ohio, population 500, Clark Gable was a regular American boy, fond of the outdoors and all sports. Mother less from the time he was seven months old, he was raised by his grandparents until his father re married. He held a deep love and respect for his stepmother. Like any other normal American boy, Clark Gable was not sure what position he would like to hold in life. He thought for awhile that he might be an architect, and later he studied medicine at night school. Ambitious but poor, he had to work from the time he was seventeen years old, and his jobs were as va ried as his opportunities. He was time-keeper in a rubber factory, call boy in a theater, an oil driller, a telephone linesman, a surveyor’s assistant and a lumberjack. Clark Gable might have been anything but a motion picture actor. He became a star by traveling the hard road of theatrical stock companies and motion picture ex tra, overcoming many disappoint ments, until he reached the pinna cle in ‘‘lt Happened One Night,” which won the Motion Picture award for the best picture of 1934. • • # CARL SANDBURG NEVER WOULD SETTLE DOWN HOW many times have you heard someone say, “I don’t know what to do about that boy of mine; it looks like he never will settle down”? Carl Sandburg was like that. A boy who skipped from job to job, and gave his simple Swedish immigrant parents many a worried hour! He was born in 1878 in Gales burg, 111., of people who were un educated and kindly, simple and poor. Forced by poverty to go to work when he was thirteen, he be gan the seemingly endless series of jobs that gave him such true understanding of the common peo ple. He drove a milk wagon in Gales burg and he blacked boots in a barber shop. If you could have looked into the future and said that some day Carl Sandburg would be a great poet, they would have laughed you out of town! He be came a scene shifter in a cheap theater, a truck handler in a brick yard, and then a turner’s apprentice in a pottery shop. Cheap manual labor, nothing skilled about most of it! He worked as a dish-washer in mid-western hotels, a harvest hand in the Kansas wheat fields, and a carpenter’s helper. He begged meals from house-to-house, in ex change for blackening stoves. Hardly a promising boy! Carl Sandburg was learning the painter’s trade when the Spanish / : \ Afc rap k American war broke out, and he enlisted. A comrade persuaded him to go to Lombard college and he worked his way through as a bell ringer, gym janitor and college cor respondent for the Galesburg Daily Mail. In college his literary ability developed and he became editor of the school publications. After grad uation he supported himself as ad vertising manager of a department store and sales manager of a busi ness machines firm. He entered politics, became a re porter, and in 1917, Carl Sandburg joined the staff of the Chicago Daily News, where his work has been out standing. A rolling stone, a restless jack-of a 11-trades has been Carl Sandburg, but from the time of his literary awakening in college, he has writ ten steadily stories for children, a biography of Lincoln, and hundreds of poems about the mass of people. So, if that boy of yours is rest less, if he skips from place to place, be patient. Carl Sandburg gained fame by knowing many people, many jobs, many problems. —WNU Service.
