LONDON (UPI) — One of Britain’s most successful secret agents during World War II has gone to her grave without revealing the code she used to help downed British airmen in Monte Carlo. Eva Trenchard, who died late last week at the age of 93, saved the lives of 27 British airmen trapped behind German lines while running the Scotch Tea Shoppe in Monte Carlo — located directly across the road from German headquarters. Miss Trenchard, who was one of the war’s unsung heroines, and liked it that way, always refused to reveal her code. "Who knows" she would say, “something similar might be needed again one day.” In commenting on her success, she once said of the Germans, "They thought I was just a harmless Englishwoman stranded behind their lines by Band Leader Guy Lombardo Dead At 75 HOUSTON (UPI) - Bandleader Guy Lombardo was proud of the title his detractors hung on him — "the King of Corn.” "For years I was known as the King of Corn and I treasured the title. Really I j did,” he once told an interviewer. “It meant that I was playing sensible, commercial music." Lombardo, 75, who made his Royal Canadians dance band a New Year's Eve tradition, died Saturday in Methodist Hospital of a lung ailment. His body was scheduled to be returned to New York today A spokesman for Fairchild’s Funeral Home in Garden City, N Y , said viewing hours were set for noon to IO p.m. today and Tuesday. The spokesman said a mass would be said Wednesday morning, but a church had not yet been selected for the service. Burial will be at Pine Lawn Cemetery on Long Island. Saul Richman, a longtime spokesman for the bandleader, said in keeping with the musician’s style, the funeral probably would be conducted without fanfare. "Knowing Guy, I don’t think he would go for such ceremonial activity around it," Richman said. "He would want to go with the quiet beat that has been his life all along." Lebert Lombardo, the band leader’s brother, said in Bedford, N.H., the Guy Lombardo Orchestra would not break up. "There is no question, we'll go on. The show must go on," Lombardo said Saturday. "We ll be known as the Guy Lombardo Orchestra under the direction of Lebert and Victor Lombardo. It is his band ll will always have his name.” At the time of Lombardo’s death, his band was performing in New Hampshire and was playing his theme song, "Auld Lang Syne." His wife of a half-century, Lillibell Lombardo, was at her husband’s bedside when he died, officials said Lombardo was admitted to Methodist Hospital Oct. 27. His condition worsened last Wednesday from serious to critical and he was "critical but stable" until Friday. He had undergone open-heart surgery performed by Dr. Michael E. DeBakey on Sept. 23. He was discharged Oct. 18 and pronounced recovered and in excellent condition A spokesman for DeBakey said the lung ailment, similar to but not quite the same as pneumonia, had nothing to do with the surgery and that further surgery would not have been appropriate. the invasion. Some of my French friends were arrested and shot on the sartie day for helping airmen. The Gestapo never suspected me or even questioned me.” Miss Trenchard hid stranded Britons and took them through the blackout to "safe houses" she rented nearby. The men stayed there until they could be smuggled over the Spanish border. She returned to Britain after the war, living quietly, but was reduced to poverty. The Royal Air Force Escaping Society, which announced her death and said her funeral would be Tuesday, came to her aid and provided an apartment at nominal rent while she lived.
