That is what (I ( »a!ivfs du-islenwl the queenly UK- ure tiny saw striding over tiie >iil) paths at Havcllo. And a "mysterious tuily" she is ICday in (he Idyll tliat'k br-Jn» played behind the walls of Villa Cimbrone. Were Leopold Slokuw- ski and Greta Garbo married in some obscure European country be fore meeting at Ravello? Some ol their friends think so. On the contrary, there ore rumors that thtv are not yet. married, but will IK Garbo remains mysterious icdav just as .she was when, almost It) year.s ago, slie went across ttie border lo a little Mexican town, ostensibly to marry John Gilbeit ' Exactly what happened there, nobody knows. Nobody but Garbo, that is, for Gilbert is dead. Uut somehow, at the high point of the most-talked 7 or romance of the decade, Garbo drew back, eluded Gilbert, hid out on him, and finally flagged a train and came back to California—alone. Romance Washed Out __.. Less than a month later Gilbut t was married to Ina Claire, Broa-i- V way slagc star. But this was a .short-lived romance. Later rumors persisted in connecting John and Greta, .although this was perhaps grounded as much in wishful thinking on the part of "their public" as in solid fact. It is quite true, however, that Garbo continued to be very fony of Gilbert, and in her infrequent interviews spoke of him in mi, highest terms. More indicative still is Hie /act that when she came to produce Queen Christina, she insisted in Jack Gilbert as her leading man at a time when her own fame and prestige had definitely eclipsed his. From this time on, Garbo retreated more and more into seclusion, and the character of the Sphinx-woman of thc screen was chrystalized. Didn't Like.'fEm Young She was reported as going about freqiieiltjy'-'wlQi Max Ginnpel,' a i Swedish engineer. She met and was ^''ported much interested in Prince Sigurd, son of Crown Piince Guslav of Sweden, but all these rumors were quickly denied. In fact, one interviewer who qtiestioned her about the Prince Sigurd minor quoted her as saying: "I don't play around wiih kids!" , Again she was reported engaged to William Soeren.sen, a Swedish financier, but nothing came of that, either, except a quotation attributed to;Gnrbo that "I nm never going 10 marry!" Fnler IMaruoulian It was after her return that Garbo fans got their biggest romantic thrill after the Gilbert attachment. Observant hotel-keepers during- January of 1934 thought they recognized a queenly figure which swept through various Ari- •/ona towns as being someone other than the "Miss Jones" and "Miss siown" who registered. She was •OURIEft NEWS Will They Accept Wage Cut? IMOtfiamm •- (iccompanied by a man who was '.toon recognized as Reuben Ma- inoiiliaii, Garbo's director at that lime. To Grand Canyon, and through the Arizona mountains went the car carrying the two vacationers, no longer as care-free as they hac! started out. For as identification of both became clear, curiosity dogged their footsteps closely throughout the 'remainder of the expedition. Rumors of an elopement and impending marriage again failed to jell, ficnrge Brent Next \ In fact there is considerable doubt about the degree of romantic attachment between Gaibo and the bespectacled director from Tiflls, Caucasia. Ocorge Brent, her next leading man, became close friends with Sarbo, and there were the usual tomantic rumors. Brent, a gay, ,'rrespressible Irishman with no awe of the Gabo legend, is believed to have done much to produce the change in Garbo that began to be apparent last year—a gayer, more human figure than the cold automaton and recluse. Everyone about the movie lots noticed the change. But in the meantime, a new interest came into Garbo's life. Leopold Stokowski Is not only a great, but an unusual musician. Conductor of the Philadelphia Symphony, he has also been interested in improvements In the recording and broadcasting of music, and in coin- drew Stokowski to it. He was the first conductor of a great sym phony to make a talkie, again re . t was while in Hollywood Hint he t Greta Oarbo.

Late last year Mrs. Stokowski .established residence at Reno, and on Dec. 2 the divorce was granted. . A few days later Garbo sailed for Sweden for the Christmas holidays. In early February Stokowski .sailed for the Mediterranean, but not before both hart denied any romance or any intention to marry, both insisting that [heir careers came first. "We are only friends," said Garbo as lhe Oripshohn sailed. "And nil this gossip is idiotic." "I am noc going to remarry," Stokowski had said after the divorce. "My plans nre for work." Then, in the ancient white- walled villa on the .sunny shore, they met.

They were received jubilantly by the population. The commando of the Austrian Salzburg garrison called on the German commander. General Kribel. and placed the garrison under his ordere so that the garrison was now considered German. Announcement that Adolf Hitler would visit the city aroused the wildest enthusiasm. Huge crowds made pilgrimages lo the suburbs of Wnlsenberg to see the German troops. Civilians and soldiers embraced them, singing German anthems.

Now we have the union, and high hourly \vnge.s. but Ihere Is no work. I ciiii'l sec whore It's gotten me anything." Union Membership Itnlmi'.il There are rumors of re-cslahllsh- ment ol 'an Independent union at Goodyear on thc foundations of the old dismantled "cotnpnny union" which was begun shortly after the World war, but had to he abandoned under present labor laws. An American Labor League local starl- ed late last year at Goodrlcli. The 75,000 members of thc UilWA proudly announced In midsummer 1937, by President S. II. Ualrymplc of the ORWA. have been sadly reduced by the business slump, the loss of 10,000 Jobs in Akron, and corresponding loss of regular dues pay menu. Akron views the present showdown nervously, but almost with relief, it has been coming for so long. Gradually production has been slipping away from this high- wage-rate city to others where the workers earned less. The union, which succeeded in raising hourly rates here to ninong the highest In the country, has generally failed to bring competing cities into line. Showdown Coming The companies have been quick lo seize and hold the advantages of lower wages and absence of labor' union pressure in such cities. •• The events of 1837 .showed lion- big new Industrial unions act while production and prices are constantly rising. The present conferences over the Goodrii-h system are being | watched as a weather-vane lo see ! how they behave under the reverse conditions, curtailed production and a falling price structure.
