FRIDAY. MARCH 14, JjJ TATBSVILLE DAILY RECORD SOCIAL levEWM ARE ILWAY8 KBW8 WttBM TttSTt 4f»t»BAlt IN THE RECORD! SOCIETY and CLUB IN THE WOMAN'S WORLD Away back when anyone who dar«d fly an airplane was thought to b« cfiusy, Phoebe Omlle was banutormlne it around the country country in an open cockpit—and lov» Ing H. Today* *he is etill a barnstormer —bat with a distinction. For > Mr*'Omlle MW la the only woman technical WlWior In. the civil aer- onauttea authority. A* their ape- c|il rtpreaehUlilVfe she Is busy these days visiting «ome two hundred hundred airports, selecting those where classes will be held to prepare the Army's fivethousand future pilots. This dark-toalred, boyiah-look- ing aviatrix has an amazing collection collection of experience behind her now dignified- position. When fly- ying movies were first the .rage, 'Mrs. Omlie turned stunt pilot— and with the help of her ace husband, husband, Captain Vernon Omlie, she looped the loop, did parachute- jumping and never eaid "no* to the most dangerous of jobs. Then tiring of the constant hectric work of a stunt pilot, she settled down— and with her husband owned and . operated an airport in Memphis. During the Mississippi flood, the Omles became nationally Jtnown— because they kept the mail going while the rivers rose higher and higher over the flat runways. It was then that Mrs. Omlie did her first night-flying—and that was before the days when radio direc tiori was an ordinary thing. It was about then too that Mrs. Omlie became the first woman ever to get a transport license—the first and just about the last. For women women no longer are entrusted with the regulak-, and heavy, job of getting the transports from coast to coast. Women aviators still come few and far between—and women inventors inventors are as rare as perfect diamonds. diamonds. But last week, in Washington Washington eight patents were issued to women—issued for things as varied varied as a wilt-resisting rose and a Dental Compact. Josephine Brownell, an amateui gardener, in Little Crompton, R. I. got the patent for the rose tha won't fade, run or curl up at the edges—come snow, frost or. rain. Ruth Fickle, an enterprising = rl from Portsmouth, Va., got a >atent for her Dental Compact—a Itlle puree gadget complete with ooth brush, tooth powder and dental floss, all in a container ho rigger than a fountain pelt. And because Ruth McKlnley, of Miami, Florida, likes to walk at night, she got another unusual patent from the government—for a small, ftoe-ifnd-heel light. It's a little reflector arrangement that slips on over your shoes, and when you're walking along the highway t will pick up the headlight of a car and show them that—there you are. Mary Wick. . of Clayton, Ohio, contributed another bit to beauty. Her invention is a small beauty kit ment—and it can be attached' to one arm while you have the other hand free to powder your "nose. Just fun at home for these inventing inventing gals—and maybe money, too. When Gene Tierney arrived back in her home town of New York the other day she had on a white Turban that took the town by storm. Everyone was talking about it—and one big store wanted wanted to copy it. Gene said, sure, without a moment's hesitation— and then got a fit of the giggles. Well, our guess is that you would have too if it had happened happened to you. For when Gene left Hollywood she left hatless—because hatless—because a helf dozen new hats she had ordered didn't arrive before train time. She relaxed with the thought thai, anyhow, she had bought a brand new and very expensive expensive bag—it cost her ISO-dollars—and ISO-dollars—and she decided that it could shed all glamor necessary while she went hatless. But just before she arrived, she got panicky. She decided to do something about things in a hurry—and hurry—and wrapped up the turban out of a white'evening sash. Well, you get the rest—the hat was the hit—nobody noticed the handbag but it makes Gene giggle every time she thinks of it.
