fft [if Stars Are essHeffy J It's fhe Influence of Hollywood, Broadway They Say tSf JOHN SELBY Wide World Arts Editor ,NEW YORK — The Metropolitan Opera's female canaries are less hefty „ these days, and the boys nnd girls a'- o lout town have decided on the rea- f $on. It's the influence of Broadway : and Hollywood, they say. In other words, "glamor" has entered the curious yellow brick building at Fortieth and Broadway which -always needs its face washed. Long research into the matter from every cranny of the auditorium, and some backstage, has proved to me that there is less fat per note than there cnee was. But I think the reasons are a little different. The Met, never noted for daring adventures in any department, is merely following the same trend the little stenographers in the subways follow. All \Vcmeu Smaller? The movies had something to do with it. But it is not true that all singers of the past wore circus tents for camisoles And anyway, all women have shrunk since the turn of the ; past wore circus tents for camisoles. And anyway, all women have shrunk since the turn of the century. People compare Lily Pons and Ernestine Schumann-Heink, who used to strain stage and other elevators into the late 'twenties. But Lily, Who makes a fetish of her figure, is a coloratura with a light voice, and Schumann-Heink was c contralto with a beefy voice. And an appetite. There is Rose Stevens nowadays— , probably tops for out and out good I figure and good looks at the Met. Miss Stevens is a mezzo, her voice is not particularly big, and she was born into the midst of the toast-and- orange-juice-for-breakfast era. Helen Jepson is another example often noted. Miss Jepson likes surf fishing and such. She has no excess poundage, but she is no will-o-the- Wisp either. Jar mila Novotna, the handtome Czech soprano, Is one singer who is just naturally thin. j Grace Moore was Hollywoodized, and still she is one of those good, firm figures able to stand against a brisk spring breeze. So is Anna Kaskas and so is Marita Farell, whose Micaela in Carmen is so appealing It Takes Heft But singers with huge, substantial voices simply always have had to carry a certain poundage, or they lose the voice. Kirsten Flagstad, who probably was the Met's No. 1 moneymaker since Caruso, looked well enough from the auditorium, but she was more than merely visible even when looked at sidewise. Helen Traubel, who is succeeding her, is not fat-but she is no tiny tot.

Big voices come from big girls; little voices come from little girls. And when big girls try to make themselves little girls, their voices are likely to crack up. The proof was established more than a century ago. In those days there lived a great contralto who made her , sel falso a soprano. Her name was y., Jvtaria Malibran, and she was probably th all time. - But she weighed only around iuu fl pounds, she would never rest or re* Jax—and she died at 28. She then was famous, but very verv dead. wntora of the North Atlantic rrn I,- , -making -roles in the first A. E. 11:00. ink'. Sermon Knees."

It's a long process to at least partly purify the miiterinl but Paul Highby, a inammalonisl for the Minnesota conservation dcpartihent, vouches for it. Highby says beaver hide thugs who used tu fly their loot into Canadlun channels or even direct to eastern fences have been put out of business because of government restrictions on private flying. Unofficial estimates are that racketeers, concentrating in the norlhlutul woods-lake, ureas, have taken as high as $1.1100.000 Unnually in beaver hides from Minnesota, the nation's lop producer. Besides the big woods fur rackets, recurring .smaller scandals develop over the rich fur trade. Just recently some pelt tags were stolen from tho state game and fish department.

Oil Menaces Bubble Baths America May Have to Get Used to Less Lather Wide World Features SAN FRANCISCO-There will be plenty of soap in wartime America, but you may have to get used to less- later and more scrubbing. There will be soap because an important by-product of its manufacture is glycerine—and glycerine is needed to make gunpowder and lo lubricate the recoil mechanism of the guns themselves. A government supply official has just told tho trade that "we're going to make soap if we have to dump Ihe surplus into the ocean." •' Bi^t -the ,uick lather, the rnild smoothness and such luxurious Institutions as the bubble bath depend upon the tropical coconut.

"There could be a distinct shortage of fats by the end of this year," Railey said. "We've already been required to earmark half our stocks of coconut oil for government use. "Without coconut oil we could still make soap but it would not be as good. The only soap that really lathers in hard water or in cold water is that made of coconut oil." Soaps for laundering and dishwashing would be affected by a coconut oil shortage as well as toilet soaps. Chief sufferer from inferior soaps would be the Middle West. There Ihe water is "hard"—that is, it contains dissolved mineral salts which impede lathering.

HOLLYWOOD - One nf the best inveslnK'tiLs ever made in the modern history of show business—ranking with Clmrlie Chaplin's 50-cent cane, Arthur Mnr.x's $8 hiirp. and Sally Rand's first set of rummuge-.snle fans —is the $3 Alma Ross spent for a hula lesson. For 10 years, from tho time that she herself was 10, Miss Ross studied lap dancing. She learned triples and spins and acrobatics and stair-dancing, bill, all she got out of it w,i.s a hoofing engagement the last time "Show Boat." was filmed. And then .her bit was chopped from the picture. The movie colony seemed to be swarming with lap dancers. Then one day early in I93fi Miss Ross heard about a call for a few Hawaiian dancers for "Hollywood Boulevard." That evening she paid an Hawaiian girl to teach her a hula routine, and the next day .she got a job. Customers Dodged It was no time at all on the set at Paramount thai Alma Ross was discovered to be sensationally assembled by nature for the undulating swish- ings of the grass skirl. Without moving her feet she could flip a hip so far and fast thi't. orchestra members find cabaret customers involuntarily dodged. She was downright gyroscopic defying not only Ihe limitations of anatomy but the laws of gravity. Fascinated persons would tiptoe onto the .sound slage lo stare at Ihe rniddle-swiveled marvel. Long before the picture Was released to a public Iliat founde it pretty dull—there he- ing little of the huluist in the final Mil—Miss Ross was on her way to London to fiance in the revue called "Stop Press." While there, .she also wriggled in a late floor show at Dorchester House, nnd by day ;;lie found time to toss her torso a bit in five English movies. An agent from Canes meanwhile had been silting around patiently with n contract, so, Miss Ross and he rhiiy ward-robe weiffi to the Casino for several weeks: Reluming to Hollywodo, she met Band Leader Louis Prima, whose jive rhythms had nothing in common wilh the island tunes to which she danced. Nevertheless, they were married rv, couple of months later, * Started Ou-n Show For a year, she just traveled with her husband. By this time 'Paramount regretted her capture by foreign agents, and now it offered her a long- term contract. Alma Ross came back'v appeared in a few college pictures, but mostly posed for leg art and oomphy fashions. So she quit, went to New York, nnd produced a new show at the Hurricane Club. Miss Ross is perhaps the firs" American who ever taught Hawaiian' {•iris how to do their own dances— or versions of them anyway. She also mowed the (jrass skirts a bit and introduced the use of luminous paint. ?oon the expected cycle of South Seas movies arrived, and she re'Cl turned to gyrate modestly in all those of Ihe past two years. Oddly, most of them have been Tahitian rather than Hawaiian, such as the current "Tullles of Tahiti." Miss Ross doesn't mind. Siic's still being paid off by thajL lucky ?3 investment. •* Tho plaintiff's attorney asked tin- woman to state her reason for hitting her hu.sband on the head with tho Piano stool. "I couldn't lift the piano, fiopo!" she countered. '* The California fisherman who netted a. 0000-pound shark should be sent out after some submarines.
