PAGE TWO THE KALONA NEWS. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA WHO&apos;S HE00S THIS WEEK,,, By Lemuel F. Parton Ivvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv EW YORK.--If a prisoner hadn't jumped out of a two- story window and escaped, 123 years ago, newspapers today wouldn't be front. Biggest Star paging the de- Traced to scription of the 2-Story Leap biggest star in the universe, 3,000 times larger than the sun. They should have named the star Napo- leon, instead of Epsilon Aurigae. His was the touch-off of events ter- restial which finally ranged out 3,000 light years and brought news of the giant star. Chronologically, as the -astronomers would put it, it was like this: Friederich Georg Wilhelm Struve was a studious German youth who wanted to be an astronomer, but lacked opportunity for study. For no apparent reason, a ranging band of Napoleon's scouts seized him and locked him in a prison on the banks of the River Elbe. He timed his high window-dive to the passing of a queer-looking ship, made a long, hazardous swim and was pulled aboard. The ship was homeward bound to Russia. The czar was a patron of astronomy. The young man was encouraged and became not only director of the observatory of the University of Dorpat, but one of the founders of modern astronomy, with Herschel and Bissel. His sons and grandsons became famous astronomers and it is his great-grandson, Dr. Otto Struve, who, with his assistants at Yerkes observatory of the University of Chi- cago at Williams Bay, Wis., discov- ers the facts about Epsilon Aurigae. He is director of the observatory. He arrived here in 1921, after fight- ing with the white armies in Russia and fleeing to Turkey with their col- lapse. He became director of Yerkes observatory five years ago at the age of thirty-four. $ $ $ IN THE, new movie, "Hollywood Hotel, Bennie Goodman, trump- eter and swingster, again demon- strates that he gets all the college trade.

Ex- peditions sent by this department into the far domain of youth say it's that way all over the country, particularly among the collegians. The Dossier says he does it &ith his "gut-bucket, barrel-house, screw-ball and grunt-iron music." Be that as it may, it nets him $100,000 a year. At the age of ten, he was a semi- pro vaudeville musician, earning around $2 a week in Chicago's Ghetto. He was the eighth of eleven children of a tailor who earned $20 a week. He bought a mail order clarinet on the installment plan, and, by the time he was thirteen, was a full-fledged journeyman mu- sician, but still in short pants. He first got out in front in Cali- fornia,  running his first band in 1931. He slumped down to $40 a week in !934, moved in with Billy Rose, hit his stride again, and, via radio, is a recent arrival in the top-money brackets. He is twenty-seven, tall, dark, ath- letic, good-looking, with rimless oc- tagonal glasses, and. the more sav- age his music, the more money he makes. $ $ RANKLIN M0'I GUNTHER, American minister to Rumania, decorously, and quite unofficially, .ha says, challenges the new anti- Scmitism in Ru- Mr. Gunther mania.

He was a guest on a yacht an- chored in Christiania harbor. The harbor master told him that spot had been saved for Kaiser Wil- helm's yacht. There was an argument and the harbor master said Mr. Gmlther had clipped the cap off his head and wouldn't pick it up. It boiled up in- to a big international story, but Mr. Gunther came through it nicely to continue representing his country in l many foreign ports. President Coolidge made him rain. tster to Egypt in 1928. He is a na- tive of New York, fifty-two years old, an alumnus of Harvard. Consolidated:News lSeatures. WNU Service. Collective Bargaining Collective bargaining is a labor union term referring to a method of determining wages, hours and work- ing conditions by direct negotiation between the representatives of a la- bor union and an employer. Instead of acting individually, as in the case of individual bargaining, the em- ployees act as a group in present- ing their demands, appointing repre- sentatives who hold conferences with the representatives of the em- ployers to adjust matters of dispute. The individual employee subordi- nates himself to the common inter- est of his fellows and in return re- ceives benefits which he could not obtain alone. ADRIAN G! VES YOU FA'SH IONS FOR 193B The creator of many styles that later become accepted world modes, Adrian, most famous cinema stylist, pre- sents his 1938 fashion predic- tions in "Mannequin," new picture starring Joan Craw- ford. Among the gowns worn by Miss Crawford are those for which Photographer Hur- rell posed the illustrations shown on this page. Ameri- can women will do well to examine them closely, for 1938 will likely find many of these frills and fancies dis- played in prominent shop windows. Adrian, shown at the right with his drawing board, does not go for ex- tremes, yet insists on origi- nality in his styles. No better evidence of this trait can be found than the attractive Cossack-type hat Miss Craw- ford doffs at the left, made from magenta, green and purple yarn. ::: :::i  . ;:" .::i:i:;::i:!:i:i: :. :,: ::::: !!?iii:iiiii::!)i::iiiiiii)iiiiilili!iliiiiiiiill i!!iiiiiiiiiiiii!i i!iiiiiii FOTO-FEATURE You'd never suspect from the front that the entire back of this jacket is made of new blue-tore tuxedo fox. :'.!: ::::::::::::::::::::::::: .! ::::::::::::::::::::::::::: ::::: :::::::::::::::: .u. k:<:... . .::::::: !:i:i:!:!::i:i:i:::::!:::!::!:i:@@ @. ::iiiiiiiiiii!iiiiiiii::i:i::i::i::i::i@tli :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::, :::::::::::::::::::::::: Periwinkle blue crepe wth nar- row beaded brim offers an interest- ing treatment to this new hat.

CRA WFORD the GLAMOROUS Joan Crawford is an example of what can happen to the girl with talent, ambition, enthusiasm and the confidence to keep on trying in the face of discouragement. She was born in San Antonio, Texas, in 1907, the daughter of a theater manager. At fourteen she was a switchboard operator in Lawton, Okla. Next came a convent at Kansas City, followed by a department store job by day and dancing lessons by night. On her first stage job Joan was stranded 300 miles from home, but that experience gave her courage. An M-G-M talent scout saw her in the Shu bert show "Ira E That it!
