Hollywood Beauty

Luck and Beauty
Hollywood, Calif.—Fortune has smiled on Theona Bryant. When she went to New York to become a model she ran into John Robert Powers as she was going into his agency. He was so impressed with her fresh beauty that he put her right to work without first sending her to a training school.

"What were you wearing? I asked Theona as we lunched at MGM, for whom she will make her screen debit in "The Power and the Prize."

"That's something I'll never forget," she smiled. "It was a simple brown and white striped cotton summer suit. I had on brown and white pumps, a string of pearls and carried a straw bag. Mr. Powers said I had a feeling for clothes, and he put me into high fashion modelling.

"One thing photographers demand is that you make yourself look different. It is so easy to get into a rut, but you will feel differently toward yourself and your friends will give you more attention if you experiment.

"It's said an artist is no better than his tools," Theona continued, "and this certainly applies to make-up. I learned how important it is to have an eyebrow pencil the exact shade of brown which is best for me and to keep it sharp so that I can draw a fine line. I bought a pencil sharpener for two dollars in a hardware store. It's a handy little gadget I'd be lost without, because it sharpens my eyebrow pencil so much better than a razor blade.

"I find by lightly powdering my eyes before making-up keeps my eye shadow from melting or smearing. And powder on your lashes makes them look heavier when you've applied your mascara.

"Another 'tool' no girl should be without is a lipstick brush," Theona announced. "If you have learned to make-up your mouth without one it will seem strange for a while, but there is no doubt about it—you can get a more flattering shape to your mouth when you outline it first with a brush and then fill in.

"I think it's nice to follow the fashion in make-up, and at the moment the high style is toward pale lips, either pink or coral. I don't use garnet or purplish shades," Theona concluded. "Make-up can't be flattering if it is definitely out of date."

I have been wonderfully blessed in being restored to active life after being crippled in nearly every joint in my body and with muscular soreness from head to foot. I had Rheumatoid Arthritis and other forms of Rheumatism, hands deformed and my ankles were set. 

Limited space prohibits telling you more here but if you will write me I will reply at once and tell you how I received this wonderful relief.

was somewhat flatter. The shape was designed to keep the hydrogen from shifting, a noticeable fault in the cylindrical types.

The framework beneath, held to the bag with cord netting in square design, also a Knabenshue innovation, was 38 feet long and consisted of three parallel longitudinal pieces forming a triangle in cross section which came together in a point at each end. These were placed and tied in their proper relative positions by means of wooden struts and piano wire. The wood was spruce with the exception of a few pieces of bamboo. The two-bladed muslin-covered propeller, pusher type, was 10 feet in diameter, blades 229 inches wide at the outer extremity. The rudder at the stern, also muslin and spruce, was 9 feet long and 5 feet wide, attached to the frame and to bamboo strut in the netting. A four-cylinder air-cooled gasoline engine, geared to the shaft by chain and sprocket, was 10 horse power, Usual flight speed was 15 miles an hour.

Steered by Ropes
The navigator sat astride the frame. He steered the craft by ropes and by shifting his own weight toward the nose or rear.

Perhaps the highlight of Knabenshue's week at the Fair of 1906 was the visit to the Governor. 

Either by design or showmanship or by actual emergency the navigator had trouble getting downtown. "Some of the machinery wasn't working right," a reporter stated, "so he determined to land. A rooftop, the Eldridge-Higgins building at Gay and Front St., was a favorable site."

Knabenshue threw out an anchor rope to the crowds on the roof, edged the craft in, made the repairs and took off. "The ship rose easily until high above the building when the steersman turned and sailed to the State House grounds," according to the press.

Knabenshue came in over Bryce Bros. store and landed in the broad walk behind the McKinley monument, according to his flight plan.

The reporter of the day takes up from there.

"I was just passing by and stopped to pay my respects," said Capt. Knabenshue as the Governor greeted him in the executive office shortly before noon Friday (Sept. 7, 1906). The Governor said he was the first caller ever to come by airline. Knabenshue assured the Governor he did not want an office and after a short conversation in which the young aeronaut recounted his experiences, he withdrew and entering his ship again sailed in the direction of the Fair Grounds from which he had come."

ous young woman and walked away.

The woman walked off, picking up a dollar and a quarter. Mrs. Rees later found the other 25-cent piece on her window. 

Mrs. Rees, whose husband is an accountant, said the would-be robber looked "sleepy-eyed" and drew her attention, as she stood in line with five other customers, because of her "long, wavy, dark hair."

Teller Frightened
After pressing the alarm, Mrs. Rees related, "my thought was to get away from there."

"I was frightened," she added. "I thought of my children and what would happen to them if I were shot."

Not until nearly three hours later, when the fugitive drove up to her home, was it known what brought about the robbery attempt.

The bank's alarm, ringing at the Euclid police station, brought Euclid patrolmen Jacob Frank and Carl Shea to the bank in about two minutes.

On a hunch they jotted down the license number of the only car they saw driving away, before going inside to investigate. The car seemed to be speeding away.

The number was traced to the suspect and her home. The arrest was a matter of time, until she came home to her husband and children, who were waiting for her, thinking she had gone on a shopping trip.

Quiet Couple
Neighbors said the couple were stay-at-homes. Millard was seen more frequently than his wife, going to and coming from work at an optical company.

The accused woman, a native of North Carolina, met her husband after his wartime disability when a sister married his brother. Their children were 8, 6, 3 and about 8 months.

She is only five feet tall, weighs but 100 pounds. Her penalty for conviction of attempted bank robbery is up to 20 years in a federal penitentiary.

She said she has been attacked by a motorcycle rider last August after she agreed to go for a ride with him. She and a girl friend met him in a bar where they had gone to hear mountain music, she said.

Fatal Allure
New scourge of Florida's citrus belt, the Mediterranean fruit fly is being lured to a poison-bait death by oil of angelica seed. This oil has been used as a perfume in milady's boudoir, so the fruit fly isn't the first to be attracted to trouble by its motivating aroma.
