Page 7 MELV1N JOHNSON, Inc., Publishers Saturday Morning, October 1, 1933 Cleopatra Called the 'Dark Queen of Egypt 1 There is as much reason for supposing that Cleopatra was a blonde as for supposing that she was a brunette. According to the popular conception, she was a decided brunette, with dark skin, dark eyes and dark hair, and she is frequently referred to as "the dark queen of Egypt." But historical sources supply no evidence as to her actual complexion. It should be borne in mind that Cleopatra was a Greek by ancestry, and Egyptian only by birth. So far as known, observes a writer in the Indianapolis News, she did not have Egyptian blood in her veins. The Ptolemies, it is supposed, remained pure Macedonian Greeks, and their capital, Alexandria, was the center of Greek rather than Egyptian culture. They even dressed as Greeks except on certain ceremonial occasions. Therefore, Cleopatra must be regarded as a Macedonian type, and tiie dark skin and Mack hair of tho native Ecyo- Uan attorcf'no duo as to ner complexion. Many Greeks were dark- complexioned, but among the Macedonians while skin, fair hair and blue eyes were not uncommon, and ono of Cleopatra's ancestors, Ptolemy Philadelphus, is described by Theocritus as having light hair and fair complexion. When an American actress played the role oE Cleopatra in Shakespeare's tragedy she por tiaycd the Egyptian queen with led hair. Shakespeare alluded to Cleopatra as "tawny." Java's Water Kastel Is Reminder of Harem Days It appears that the Water Knstcl, a famous attraction, was designed and built by a Portuguese architect about the year 1758, writes Eleanor N. Knowles, Djocya, (Java), correspondent in the New York Times. It was in use until destroyed by earthquake in 18G7. In its heyday it was complete with beautiful water gates and buildings of plaster and masonry, Portuguese in design, together with a complete subterranean establishment. From the rums as we studied them there seemed to have been passageways bringing a low water level, as in one of the water palaces in use by a Prince of Bali. Because of the high retaining walls, the water could probably be raised to a higher level to keep out intruders. One of the stories of its beginnings was that the water pi election was to keep out invasions of the Sultan of Solo, or S u r k r t r t n , to the south. At the litst hint of invasion the owner would ictirc with his harem to the s u b t c n a n e n n quarters, there to remain u n t i l his f a i t h f u l army had routed the foe Since the Water Kastel v\as constructed a few years a f t e r the territory of Malm-am was chvidod into the states of Jag- J a k a r t a , Surkarta and Mangkoene- goran, and there arc rec- oids that much qiinirclmg existed between the Sullans in the early days, theio is probably some t i u t h to the talc. Diet of African Natives It is said that the men of the Masai tribe in Africa, with a diet including milk and meat--rich in protein, fat and calcium--avcrnfio about 5 inches taller and 23 pounds heavier than the Kikuyu tribe", who are vegetarians and live m".itly on ceteals, roots and legumes. The muscular strength of the Mnsai is said to bo some 50 per cent greater than that of the Kiyuku, while Masai women average 3 inches more in height and 27 pounds more in weight than the Kikuyu women. But children show the most striking contrast. Three-fourths of the Masai t r i b e were "good and very good" in physical development, while in the Kikuvu trrnim IPS; Minn ono-ihird TELETYPEWRI1 AIR CORPS 2,200 Mile Network Liaksd G. H. Q.

Having decided upon a ground plan and designated air bases and facilities, which included a network of Bell System teletypewriter circuits, Maj. Gen. Frank M. Andrews put the Air Corps into nir en masse, various planes taking part from airfields as distant as California, Texas and Louisiana. These planes were laden with more than 3,000 men and three million pounds of Luggage and the spectacular maneuvers employed the most modern equipment and the latest in aerial operations. In all, some 220 planes of many types participated. While tfiese flocks of planes were busily engaged in protecting the American coast from the "enemy," their operations were being coordinated and directed by means of a network of forty-five teletypewriters connected by ritciiits tctalinp approxi- mntcly 2 200 milts. These circuits connected the general headquarters nt Mitchcl Field w.lh Ilia other seventeen air ba.scs alou? the Atlantic coast. The piinL-ipal citcuils linKcil G.II.Q. to the "wins;" commands at Mitchcl Field, Midclletov, n, Pa. and New Haven, Conn. In turn, these were con- nectrtl by other chants to smaller units rsdialitig from the centtal points; switching equipment permitted the entire nctwoik to be hooked together. Under the direction of Lieut. Col. Cctlric W. Lewis, U. S. Army Signal Corps, signal officer of G.H.Q. Air Force, there flowed over thcsa wires "intelligence summaries" -- bulletins put out by headquarters to tell how the "war"' wsa going; orders to scout an aica or attack; weather reports; onlsrs ami reports regarding a stream of supplier feeding into the various air bases; and "PX" icports--the messages scs.t out by an niiport announcing n plane's departure, so that the airport cf rJcEtrnfUion will keep an eye open for it. , Telephone mm did a record job on the pmviFioii and {retaliation of the emergency telephone and teletype equipment, which provided the main communication's link for the various units paiticipating in the air nianeu- vcis. Within one month fiom the receipt of the Army's order, \vhicit included forty-five sending and icccivirig teletypewriters, the system was installed and tested out; about one week later it was in actual service. Duo to their close pioximity to the Army's radio stations, each teletypewriter had to be completely filtered to prevent any interference with tlic indio signals. According to Col. Lewis the teletypewriter system handled nn average of 20,000 words a day and on one day he estimated that it handled 30,000 words. While the results of every phase of the maneuvers will be subjected to a minute scrutiny by the Army high command before any conclusions are arrived at, it is undei stood that the teletypewriters proved extremely adequate as vehicles of communication-no small accomplishment where they had to keep up with tlio operations of planes that hit speeds of more than 250 miles pel hour. \n Tke WEEK'S NEWS WOMAN WINS AIR DERBY -- Pholo ·how* facquellne Cochron pointing number "13" on side ot her plane wbich proved lo be no "jinx" as it won lor her $9.000 First Prize la the National Air Boces held recently.
