' i THE TOREADOR IS A IAD Y AND PRETTY By Harold Ratliff, Associated Press Writer "Brick Without Straw" is Lettie Saylor's first IkoIc. fishing, swimming and, hunting, and handles a rifle with skill. An inspirational writer, Mrs. Saylor says that there are days when she cannot write and other days when, "I just must write." She admits she is 40 years old. She has red hair, gray-blue eyes, is five feet five inches in height, and weighs 125 pounds. The characters of her novel, which deals with the "Hill People" their toils, ppoverty, loves and fueds are known to Lettie Saylor personally. She is now working on her sec ond book, which she hopes to. complete this fall. Brownsville, Texas, Sept. 6. The big attraction across the Rio Grande at Matamoros these Sundays is Conchita Cintron, the lady bullfighter. Conchita looks like a college coed, a bare five feet tall, a scant 110 pounds. The stranger i3 apt to feel sorry for her when she steps.into the ring; but before the show is over, he's willing to acknowledge that it's the bull that could use the sympathy. Conchita has flung her red robe high in victory over more than 360 bulls in her Xour years of professional bullfighting. For ill her frail appearance, this pretty brown-haired, brown-eyed girl is one of the fiercest matadors in all Mexico. ' Conehita Is American Citizen Conchita is an American citizen, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Cintron. She was born in Chile and reared in Peru. She started fighting bulls at the age of 15 and is credited with introducing the combination of fighting bulls both on horseback and afoot. She always leaves the horse x ,4 ; 'v: .' ; , ,t J . " "n in w 1 mini for the kill, although placing the "ban-derillas" in the bull's shoulders from the Baddle. This is a beautiful execution, both by Miss Cintron and the horse. Her first horse and many she has owned since then came from Ruiz Tamara, Portu- AP Photo. Conchita Cintron looks like a coed but ehe has killed 360 bulls in her four years as professional matador. Mexicans call her 'Bonila Teruana. guese consul in Peru who conducts a riding school. He taught her most of her tricks. Conchita fights every Sunday, seldom taking a vacation. This has meant more than 180 fights since her first professional appearance July 28, 1939, and she's looking forward to many more before she settles down to marriage and rearing a family. Conchita isn't even engaged and doesn't have any boy friends. She says she hasn't time for them. "I will not marry until I am ready to quit the game," she says, but this is not because she considers bullfighting dangerous. . Her earnings are large. She averages about 10,000 pesos a fight around $2,000 in American money. For instance, somo 4.000 watch her in Matamoros at an average of six pesos a person and Miss Cintron reportedly' gets 40 per rent of the gross gate. She also appears in Mexican motion pictures, having completed one recently in. Mexico City. The girl's skill with a horse is magnificent. Seldom has one of her horses been so much as scratched in a ring. She knows how to make the bulls miss by an eyelash in order to give the crowd a thrill. She trains all her horses, working with them incessantly. One Horse Saved Her Life One horse, "Paladino," saved , her life. The horse slipped and went down. The bull started to charge and the horse raised up and took the animal's mad rush. Miss Cintron resides in Mexico City most of the time because it is a central location . for fights all oer Mexico. Her father, a graduate of the United States Military Academy at West, Point, is a well-known businessman of Peru. Having lived in that country most of her life, it is only natural that Conchita became affectionately known as "Peruana," and is more popularly described in Mexico as "La Bonita ' Feruana." Miss Cintron's grandfather, A. Hyatt Verrill, author, illustrator, naturalist and explorer, is listed in Who's Who. Her mother is a native of New Haven, Conn.

IN A CALIFORNIA PAPER, the Los Angeles Examiner, to be exact, appeared a story by an International News Service staff correspondent (Lee Van Atta) telling of the heroism of Lieut. William Nuckols of Riverside. Calif., whose "gallantry and devotion to duty and to his crew" saved the life of a L'villian, Lieut. Bill Shaw, and his radio man and top turret gunner. Somewhere in New Guinea, Lieutenant Nuckols and Lieutenant Shaw, copilot of the "Widow-Maker," a B-25 bomber, were assigned the objective of a Jap destroyer squadron, "believed to be protecting desperate Japanese efforts to reinforce southern New Britain via landing barges." After the bomber pasted one destroyer with three direct hits in the- face of heavy antiaircraft . fire, eight Nip planes attacked, crippling the B-25. Although handicapped with battered controls, missing ailerons and one half-dead engine, the pilot was able to fly the shin within siuht of its home base. Bill, who has been the Californian's fly ing companion since they went to the South Pacific, adjusted the parachutes on the wounded radio man and gunner, allowing them to land safely. . Then Lieutenant Nuckols "circled the field for Shaw to drop to safety, but he became suspended under the escape hatch. Giving up his own chance to jump, Nuckols stuck at the controls until Shaw was tossed off." . . . "It was too late for Nuckols to get away. He crashed with the ship." A recommendation has been made that the Distinguished Service Cross be awarded posthumously to Lieutenant Nuckols for "extraordinary heroism in action."

Capably edited by John Mapother, a student at the Speed Scientific School, the K.A. News has a staff including Joe Erskine, Tom Johnson, Harold Harned, Harry Mullin and Bob Settle. From the sentiment and appreciation expressed in the . column G.H.Q., we think that the staff's efforts are not in vain, as so many of the brothers now in the service have mentioned the pleasure they derive from the sheet.

Their chance to act as guinea pigs for the- Third Loan came when the War Finance Division decided to try out this loan on themselves before the country wide campaign which starts September 9.
