CANADA LEE GETS OUT OF
TIGHT SPOT; SOLD GIFT CAR
WITH BALANCE OF $789.36
..New York, (C) by Delores Cal
vin Canada Lee, the former fight
er, who battles unsuccessfully as
Bigger Thomas in “Native Son”,
won a decision in the courts this
week in which the finance comp
any played the villian.
When “Native Son” was at its
peak, that was when Canada was
making $75 weekly, the original
pdoducers, Bern Bernard and Lion
el Stander gave him a car in lieu
of a raise. The black car had 4
stars brightly painted on thte doors
inscribed, “In recognition of the
I greatest acting performance we
have eved seen.” But Canada did
not like the make of the auto and
sold it, declaring it was free of
mortgages and encumbrances.
But a week later ,the finance
company hipped on Lee with all
four for the balance if $789.36
which the producers forgolt to pay,
Charged with grand larceny, Can
ada made o quick movt and sent
hurriedly for J. J. Levanthal of
Lee asd Levenlthal, the new pro
duceds of the shpw now playing in
Brooklyn. Mr. Leventhal, of
course could not let the star be
held in court, for there Would be
no “Native on,” so he willingly
paid out the balance, but said it
was an advance on Lee's earnings.
Breathing a sigh of relief. Can
ada will now have to think and
think hard how to budget or he’ll
be missing thalt $789.36 very soon.

Keeping cool when the thermome
ter runs its little red tongue up
to the top figures is something that
we all think about a good deal.
How to do It? Well, you’ll feel
cooler if you look cool, and there
are lots of tricks to make you look
as cool as a frosted lemonade!
They’re beauty tricks which start
with soap and water and end with
a final dash of flowery cologne. Just
as sure as you manage to look fresh
and crisp and your best beau tells
you so—well, you’ll feel better right
So, defy old Sol and try a few of
these. First, a warm or lukewarm
tub or shower. If you prefer the
tub, toss in one of the delightful
preparations that turn it into a fra
grant mass of bubbles. It’s fun, and
cooling. Take your time, and relax
every muscle in your body. If
you’re addicted to firm rubbing with
a rough towel in the drying-off
process, give that up for summer
and blot yourself dry as gently as
possible. Next comes the bath pow
der, and If you use a scented one,
choose the same scent as your bath
bubbles and your cologne. You don’t
want to finish up with a mixture
Once you’re In fresh, cool clothes,
do your make-up carefully. Summer
make-up should be lighter than you
may use in the cooler months. Very
little rouge, a deft hand with the
powder, and your gayest lipstick,
applied sparingly. You want to
look as fresh and cool as a flower.
You can help create that illusion
of coolness and freshness through
a more casual hair-do. Wear your
hair a little further off your face,
keep it softly curled, rather than in
a set and formal coiffure. For the
final touch to your hair, wet your
fingers with cologne or toilet water
and push the curls into place,
dampening them very slightly with
the fragrant liquid. A little more
on the back of your neck and on
your wrists, and a dab on your
hanky, and you’re ready to go. Tie
a gay little beau-catcher ribbon in
your hair, and you’re off for fun
Just as sure as you look as cool
as you can, you’ll be a refreshing
sight among your sweltering sisters,
and that’s enough to make you feel
as cool as a cucumber.
There, now, don’t you feel cooler
