Cole didn't start singing pro

The water pump extinguisher is
practical because it is easy to re-j

the pressure is turnished by a

can be carried to the scene of the
fire and the pumping started. The
user can recharge the cylinder
simply by filling it with water.

The most effective of the extin

of soda, the same as that used in
baking, except that it is more re

to clothing or digestion. Packed
under pressure, the chemical
quickly smothers a fire when it is
released from the cylinder.
This exinsuisher still has a
couple of "bugs" in it. The
chemical tends to pack down
in the cylinder and to be af

extinguisher must be vented

overcome these disadvantages,

Kenton studied piano under the
strtet eye of his mother also. After
graduating from high school, he
played in every saloon and music
hall that would listen to him, fin
ally ending up doing radio work.
Here he got the burning de
sire to have his own band. By
this time he had formulated his
own ideas about the way music
should sound but unfortunately
too many people disagreed with
him. He did form his band but
it wasn't until 1941 that he be

turned to presenting his music on
the concert stage rather than on
the dance floor.
Sarah Vauehan is comparatively
new to the music world since her
rise to stardom took place in 1947.
Her home town is Newark, n.j.,
where she began to be noticed as
a soloist in the church choir.
Friends encouraged her to en
ter an amateur contest at Har
lem's Apollo Theater and she
won. She soon appeared at the
' Apollo for a week with the fcan
Hines band and then worKea
with the bands of Billy Eckstine
and Johnny Kirby.
From there she went into the
night club circuits where she was
dubbed "The New Sound." She
has made such records as "Time

"I Cried For You."
