LONDON, June 5 <fP)— With dark monihs of mourning behind her, Britain's widowed Queen Mary is beginning to reappear in public. While she has undertaken no official engagements, and is not likely to do this for many months, her tall, black-gowned figure is to be seen at some of the more serious functions of the London season, walking alone in places where the slight, bearded figure of King George formerly was always at her side. Paintings Recall Husband. Paying her customary visit to the Royal Academy of Arts exhibition at Burlington House. Piccadilly, the widowed queen paused long before pictures which for her evoked sad memories. These were the poignantly contrasting paintings of Frank O. Salisbury's "The Heart of Empire"— vast canvas depicting the glittering scene of St. Paul's cathedral when King George celebrated the silver jubilee 'Of his reign a year ago and Frank E. Beresford's picture of Westminster Hall at 12:15 a .m. January 28, this year, when King George lay in stale on the eve of his funeral, with Ills sons keeping a last vigil by his side. Both theso pictures havo been bought by Queen Mary. They probably will hang in the salon at Sandringham House, the Norfolk home where her husband tiled. Edward's Likness Missing. Other pictures of the royal family keenly interested the queen. There were Frederic Whiting's por- trait'of King George riding horseback in Hyde Park; the puke of York painted by Simon Elwes In the purple-lined cloak, high boots and curved saber of a hussars regiment; the family groqp of the Duchess of York and the little Princesses, Elizabeth and Margaret Rose, by Edmond Brock. Smaller pictures o.f the Duchesses of Gloucester and Kpnt an d a bronze bust Pf the Duke o.f York were examined closely, but the queen saw no portrait of her eldest son, Britain's present king. Carries Jting's Gardenias. The galleries were closed to the public at the time of the queen's visit but passers-by who witnessed her arrival noticed that she was wearing a hat different in style from those she has hitherto favored. One expert described it as "black silk with a shallower crown than usual and in shape resembling the neat little turned-up hats which the Duchess of Kent often wears." At one of the stands she was handed two white gardenias of the type the late king always favored for his buttonhole. For the rest of her stay at the show she carried these fragrant blooms in her hand. 'Beast!' Cries Ann Harding to 'erson BELFAST, Ireland, June 5.

FAMED IS DAUGHTER OF HOUSESPEAKER Father and Brother Were Elected to Seinate WASHINGTON, June 5 (AP)— William Brockman Bankhead, elevated to the speakership of the House of Representative? today tp succeed Joseph W. Byrns. hails from the west Alabama "hill country." Born April 12. 1874, near Moscow. Ala,, he was the secpnd son of John Hollis Bankhead and Tal- HiJah,khead. His birthplace was a farm to which his father returned after service as a captain under the confederacy. "Will," as he is known by friends, went to the University of Alabama and played fullback on its first football team. He won the University medal for oratory. His father was well along the legislative path which one day two of his sons were to follow. After finishing at Alabama, Will joined the elder—then a amember of the national house—and entered Georgetown University here to study. He became class president. With a law degree and a lot of ambition, Bankhead set out for New York City to hang out his shingle. He joined up with Tammany Hall. Gopd-looking and conceded to have unusual talent, he all but scrapped his legal training for the stage while in the big 1 city. A theater manager offered him a job and he was about to take it, when his mother frowned. It is said Bankhead vowed then that if any of his own children ever wanted to tread the boards, he would not oppose them, in later years his favorite actress was his daughter, Tallulah, a name passed down from the -tragic heroine of an Indian legend and now known from Hollywood to Broadway and London. There was a special affinity between father and daughter because of his sympathetic support of her stage aspirations and her pride in dad's political achievements. Homesick for the Alabama hills, Bankhead returned from New York .to Huntsville and married Ada Eugenia Selege of Memphis. He met -his first tragedy in the death of his beautiful young wife, who -left him two baby daughters, Tailulah and Eugenia. Ho moved to his mother's hpm.e in Jasner and entered a law partnership with liis brother, the ^res- ant SoiwtoT John H. Bunkliead. Will bqcaini' increasingly active in the ranks of the party. In Hunls- ville h.e had been sent to the state legislature an clserved as city attorney -and circuit solicitor. Later he married Miss Florence McGuire of Jasper. In : 1914 Bankhead entered the congressional race against William B. Oliver, the Alabaman who placed his name before the Democratic caucus of the 74th Congress for floor leader. . "Buck," as Oliver .is Icnown 'to his friends, whipped Will. B,ut'dur- irig'the nex;t two years the Alabama legislature and served as city at- ver's .district and created the seventh. In the following election B.ank- heaci was sent to Washington ar»d is the only representative the seventh evqr had. When Will entered the H^use, his father was in the senate. It was no unusual occurrence fqr the Senate and House gavels to fall with a simultaneous bang, each wielded by a Bankhead, father and sou. In later-years, .after .the death of ;he Senator-father, John R. Bank- lieacl, Jr., succeeded him ift the Senate. ,The brothers have often presided on the same day on either side of-the oapitol in recent months. ,—. .. .HMJ^I.— —. — XOSSE SURPRISES NEQRO BIRMINGHAM, Ala.,.June 5.

STOP-OVER PRIVILEGES Or Write— T. P. General Passeuger Agent Aumrillo, Te RELATIVE OF STEPHEN F.AUSTIN AND EX-SLAVE ARE STILL LIVING FREEPORT, June 5. OT—Henry Austin Perry. 80, and Joe Lee, 83. believed to be the only Texas master and his former slave living, reside a few miles apart in this, Brazoria county. Perry, oldest surviving relative of Stephen F. Austin, lives at Angleton, the county seat, and the okl negro a dozen miles away in a wooded section on the west bank of the Brazos river. 'Lee was given to Perry when the latter was a small boy, by his father for a personal servant. "He picked me," said Joe, "and we were together a lot. I used to saddle his horse for him to go to school and he was always good to me." Perry was born at Peach Point between Frecport and Brazoria in the house once occupied by Stephen F. Austin. James Perry, his grandfather, married Mrs. Emily Bryan, a sister of Austin. Perry's father Joined the Confederate army at the outbreak of the Civil war, leaving the boy and his mother with a number of slaves, including Lee, to work the farm. The negroes, Perry said, remained near their former masters after the war. Lee claims undiluted African descent. "My father." he said, "was caught wild in Africa and brought to Galveston, then sold to Massa Charlie Sayers at Quitana." Joe was born at a plantation near Columbia, one of twin boys. The family was separated when his father, a sister and a brother were sold at Galveston. The sister, once a "water toter," and now nearly 100 years of age, lives near Joe's two-room cabin. In 1900 a storm blew down a house upon his mother-in-law 1 and him and in 1932 another storrn destroyed a second home, but the Red Cross and sale of an oil lease made possible the present cabin on his 16-tacre potato and ribbon cane farm. Asked the age of his present wife, Lee replied, "Well, all I know is that when I was asittin' up with her her father said she was born 'man- cipation year."
