The rainbow called renown eludes most of us. And many | But being better-rounded no longer means a salt-shaker waistline.

Eleanor has 15 operatic roles in her repertoire, spends as long as a year studying and rehearsing a new part before she tries It In public. She shows little of the temperament that Is supposed to be the trademark of the prlma donna, and she Ktlll gets a kid's kick out of her success.
