Bandleader Hits the Top Makes Rainbow Room Within Thirty Months By RAY PEACOCK Wide World Features \Vrlfer NEW YORK-It takes 38 seconds for an elevator to \vhisk you 65 floors up to the Rainbow Room, which is pret- ty snappy time. It took Carmen Cav- nllaro and his orchestra 30 months to make the ascent, but that, friend, is really fast! Thirty months ago the slender, black-haired Carmen had no orchestra at all—just his piano nnd an idea that he could build up a different type of orchestra around that piano. But he never expected to hit the top so soon, and the rarefied nir of the supper club atop Rockefeller Center certainly represents tops, if only in the figurative sense. This brown-eyed. New York-born son of an Italian barber is only 28, and barely escaped being n child prodigy. At three. Cm-men began picking out tunes on a one-octave toy piano, ae- Leads Women Fliers to War Miss Cock ran Is Foremost American Woman Flier By ADELAIDE KERR Wide World Features Writer Jacqueline Cochran will lead the first contingent of American women flying behind the lines in Europe. She will select and head 25 crack women pilots who will ferry combmt planes from British factories to airfields. They will serve with the British 'Air Transport Auxiliary which is not part of the combat forces. As head of a group whose work will mark a new phase in American women's world war service, Miss Cochran is my nomination for the Woman of the Month. This will not be her first wartime wor%. 'Last June Miss Cochran, America's No. 1 woman flyer piloted a Lockheed Hudson Bomber across the North Atlantic to England—the first woman to do such a job. She has long felt that America's women fliers should serve as wartime ferry pilots and thus free men for active service. She will nominate the women pilots, accompany them to Canada for training courses and flight chgcks and (probably late in February) go ahead of them to England. They are considered a first unit and will probably be followed by others. Their job means handling the big Hurricanes and Spitfires—much heavier planes probably than most of them have flown before. About fifty British wom-en pilots are already ferrying such planes. Miss Cochran, now on a recruiting tour., if 10 cities, is interviewing only pilots-who have had at least 300 hours in the air. She spends hours on those interviews; explains blackouts, rations, hard work and long hours. She wants to make it plain that this is no "glamour job" and that once the worn- en have signed for 18 months' service ''they're in the army now." Thoroughly Feminine America's women air ace worki with terrific concentration and drive. Out of flying togs, though, she becomes thoroughly feminine. She is blonde and dark-eyed qnd loves pretty frocks. In private life she is the wife of Floyd Odium, former Wall Street financier who is now advisor to Donald Nelson, Director of the War Production Board. Jackie Coehran's climb from a beauty parlor job to world altitude records is one of the sagas of woman's advance. She was born in Pensacola, Fla., orphaned at four and taken to live with a family in Columbus, Ga. At 11 she was at work in a beauty shop and by the time she had reached her Jeens could set a wave with the best of them. Later she became 3 nurse, worked in the South, then moved on to >Nevy York and back to the beauty business. Nine years ago she learned to fly and got her pilot's license within >a three weeks' vacation. Since then she has chalked up records which have made her tops. In 1938 she won the Bencjix Transcontinental Air Derby and q 512,000 prize against a field of men. More Records. And . . . Right now she holds the international record for 2,000 kilometers, the women's national altitude record, the women's transcontinental record and a flock of others. Three times (1937, '38 and '39) she captured the Clifford Burke Harmon Trophy of the International League of Aviators—aviation's outstanding award. She is president of the Ninety-Nines, an international organization of women pilots. Besides this she runs her own cosmetics manufacturing business and flies all over the country on business trips. Add to that the ownership of u date ranch in California whose house she designed and constructed. At present the Odiums make headquarters in Washington, but in normal times runs both their luxurious New York apartment and their house in Stamford, Conn. She is extremely proud of being a good housekeeper. You might think that simetimes she would grow a little tired. She does. But she has an answer for that too. She keeps an oxygen tank at home, puts on an aviation mask, inhales fur half an hour and emerges "fresh as a daisy." What Would Cows Do For o Fly*$watter? BEGGS, Okla. ~(J?\— When one of hi.s cows, gave birth to a calf without a tail, Cornan Oulbwt, 17-year-old- 4-H flub member, had an idea. > He .suggested to County Agent Sewell G. Skelton that it might be profitable to breed stub-tajled dairy cattle so dairymen could avoid being switched in the face while milking. companying phonograph records. At five he was taking piano lessons. Prefers Clnssicnl Eleven solid years of practice tabbed Carmen for a career in music. But while he plays classical music by preference, the ready money seemed to be in popular music. "I entered Columbio but didn't stay long," he says. "I began playing free lance With several bands, including Vallee's. I got my first break from Al Kabelin (of the Cnsnding Chords). His arrangements were built around me and the piano, the announcements 'featuring Carmen.' "I was doing all right, but about two and a half years ago I formed my own litlte group. Wo opened iit the Hotel Statler in St. Louis," Carmen has been Irt the big league ever since. "It was at the Cnrelton hotel In Washington y/here we really gat aur first recognition," ho snys. "We opened there January 10 a yenr ago nnd played until May." Carmen's piano recordings of popular music are best sellers. He has made four albums (40 sides) of which "Dancing In the Dark" has been the most popular. These are played with a rhythm background—guitnr, bass iirid drums—and ore danceable. The band has grown to nine pieces. Soon lit- plays to expand to 14. His rhythmic, gciu-rnlly sweet. He avoids music, always accenting the piano, is swing. Originally "Carmelo," ho became "Carmen" for brevity's sake. He met his wife, ii blonde, level-headed Baltimore miss, ut n New York dance engagement. Their pretty, five-year-qkl daughter, Dolores, early shows talent as n dancer. But they don't want another Shirley Temple ttround tho premises. Won Many Decoriillons U. S. MnrincH were awarded 1GG8 decorations at the close of World war I and hundreds more after the Armistice. With tire rationing, the old gray man 1 is very likely to be what she used to be.
