Jeanette MacDonald’s absence from all social activities this summer is explained. She opens with the Chicago Civic Opera Co. in November and she has been studying hard with Lotte Lehman and her teacher of many years, Grace Adele Newell, to prepare herself for her debut. The contract, signed by Maestro Fausto Cleva, calls for three performances – two of “Romeo and Juliet” and one as Marguerite in “Faust” to be sung in French.

Bebe Daniels writes that the theater where she has been playing in “Panama Hattie” in London was hit by a robot bomb. None of the cast was in the theater, thank heaven.

LEO: Stars offer generous scope for both personal and business affairs. Your particular talents and skill favored; also domestic and social obligations.

Dear Martha Foster: Until eight months ago my husband and I were very happy with our two children. Then, one day at a plant party, he playfully kissed his secretary, and she took him seriously. She declared her love for him and there have been kisses and declarations of love at various times since. I learned this through a note I intercepted from her about a month ago.
