PAGE EIGHT BLYTHEVILLE, (ARK.) -COURIER 'NEWS- THURSDAY, APRIL 17, 1941 Hollywood Fashion Plates Golden Gate Fair Site Is Considered Ideal F o r Naval Training SAN FRANCISCO (UP^—Treasure Island, in the middle of San Francisco Bay and the largest man-made island in the \vorld, has been taken over by the navy for the duration of the present national defense emergency. The island was the site of the 1939-1940 Golden Gate international Exposition, but for the next four or five years, at least, it will be used as a seaplane and small craft' training base. Navy officials found the island an .almost ideal location for the purposes for which it is to be used. In 'the first place, it is entireh surrounded with navigable wulei except for the small ramp thai connects it with the San Francisco Bay bridge and which brings it within 10 minutes from the ccntei of the city. Buildings AIT Usable The navy also was able to mil-1 ize 17 of the principal buildings of the exposition and thus save greatly in construction expense, nnd what was even more important, -time. The navy was able to move in immediately and expects to :hnve j its first contingent of 1.000 men in training within a few months. Eventually, it expects to train 5.000 men at, one time there. Of the 17 buildings which the' navy will take over, three are permanent. They are the administration buildings and the two vast hangars of the Pan American Airways. The latter will continue to operate its Far Eastern and Australian Clipper services from their ; permanent base at the south end : of the island, but they have consented to have the hangars usfid as barracks during the navy occupation. The remaining 14 buildings include all the major exhibition structures of the exposition and are of vast proportions. They are not of -permanent construction but; have weathered the three years of their existence so well the navy is confident they can be utilized, with proper re-conditioning, for the four or five years they will be wanted.

The "Ow, naow-" dialect will be ' startling, coming from 'the soft mouth of Miss Bennett, but .she has it down pat. Queenie Leonard, not so long ago :i British musical star whose specialty was raucous Bockney ballads and skits, has been her coach. They worked together for '10 clays before the picture started, then rehearsed on the .set before each scene, slinging '1 sye's" and "Wot's this 'ere's?
