2 Port tV SUNDAY, JAN. j. 1946 Log gngtlCg CfttlCg f! Mexican Art World, People Esteem Diego Rivera s Wiie Santa Mom League Sessions Listed Continued from First Pajre Exchange mural as a lady engineer. Frida was born In the famous house- in Coyoacan, Mexico City suburb, in which she now lives. Here, too, she lived between her two marriages to Diego (they were di-vorced for a short time.) In-"this house Trotsky once lived ' as Frida's guest Her mother . wa3 Spanish-Indian and her father a German Jew, a photographer who specialized in colonial architecture. 'House Little Changed , The house today is much the same a3 it was at her birth in 1910, a group" of several houses whose walls go straight up from the sidewalk on a corner. There are Diego's familiar, blue outside wr.lls, and a heavy wooden door leading into an entrance patio. The only recent addition is a thatched hut In the rear patio built by Diego to hold many of his fine pieces of pre-Columbian stone sculpture. Outside of Mexico, Frida's bedroom, where she is forced to spend much of her time in bed, wuld be fantastic. On the walls bang her collection of retablos, the little pictures painted on wood or tin to commemorate a miracle. In the closets hang her collection of Mexican costumes.- On top of her Colonial four-poster bed repose two gigantic figures of men, the kind that are filled with fireworks, strung up over a street and made to explode. Fain and Universal Love lot bed lies generous, kind, good Frida, smiling, warmhearted, projecting through her face, her arms, her being a love for everyone. The years of daily pain which have kept her frequently in bed have taken away none of her rare and wonderful human qualities. In the 10 years of her first marriage " to Diego, Frida pointed only 25 pictures. In 1932, in Detroit, where Diego wa.i making sketches for a murol, Frida had an operation a. the Henry Fordv Hospital. While recuperating she started to paint again, this time on tin. Edward G. Robinson, in the collection hanging in his Beverly Hills home, has a number of these paintings as well as some on canvas. When, after 10 years of married life, Diego suggested that he and Frida be divorced "so she could paint more freely," Frida, heartbroken, lived alone and painted. To quote the critic,- the divorce "seemed to be justified by the work she did." But restlessness finally drove her to New York and thence to San Francisco, where she and Diego remarried in 1940. Andre Breton, in Mexico in 1938, told Frida she was a surrealist painter. But she was quite unacquainted with the European '." surrealists and" didn't see a Dali original, until she went to New York in 1938 for an exhibition of her own paintings. In 1939 Breton showed Frida's paintings in Paris. In parts of the United States her characteristic work is well known. To see Frida's paintings is to see her personal history elaborately and intimately recorded, to understand the pathos of her childless life. Praised by All . To see Frida is to see a beau- tiful woman whose radiant face and outstretched arms express the warmth of a rare personality. To mention her name is to hear over and over again: "Frida is a charming and kind woman, and a fine painter." She never has been known to be other than kind and gen-erous. Everyone who has met ' Frida loves her, admires her, and prays that she may be relieved of her ever-present pain.

BEFORE WE ADJOURN Velada Business and Professional Women's Club did a nice" job again in helping, with good advice, girls about to graduate from Hollywood High School The club has been giving this service for a number of years and last j week's counseling grew put of the request for : it from the girls themselves. Girls of the class were divided into those who will go ' on to college the majority of the class; those who want to marry-at once and start home-making, and those who will go to work and who consider marriage a strong possibility. FOUR COUNSELORS The counselors were Dean Edith Clark of City College, Mrs. Ruth Boynton of U.C.L.A. and Miss Virginia Hage of S.C., wljo divided the first group among them, and Susan Laughlin, personnel assistant at Lockheed Aircraft, who took the latter group. Mrs. Laughlin, mother of two children, who has handled a heavy job all through the war, had a lot to tell those girls, who accepted it with eagerness and appreciation. After watching the Legislature's special session start,. and having attended several political r party meetings during the past week, the writer is . convinced that this is no time for a woman to take her politics casually or lightly. If she does, the serious girls and there are an awful lot of them are going to pick the cherries. r; CONTENTMENT IRKS There . is ; nq resting comfortably on the feeling that "an awful lot of people feel as I do about this, and I find that comforting," as I heard one woman say last week. That sort of contentment may be good for cows, but has no place in . the daily life of a horse with a race to win. You and I may not want the same things made into the laws of this State, but we have equal rights to fight for our convictions and, in case of our failure to fight, we have no reason for hating the other woman if she gets what she wants. Somebody is going to be victorious, you know, and it might just possibly be the person who wants 'the things which are all wrong for your civic philosophy. PRESS PROCEDURE A word to press chairmen: When you are asked for information about your organization and its projects, be prepared to give that information in a short, concise paragraph or two. .Don't dump a lapful of "literature" upon the inquirer and expect her to dig out the facts for herself. She hasn't the time or inclination to do your work. And don't, please, say "literature" when what yo.u mean is "propaganda." There's a heap of difference! B. MW.
