The largest liner in America until
the recent building of the "America"
was not quite the palace of luxury
that it had been while taking vaca-
tioners to Europe.
Everyone was subjected to the in-!
conveniences, even Toscanini and
Helena. Rubenstein and former Am-
bassador Kennedy's children. Such
celebrities, who add interest to every
ccean voyage, made other passengers
who had left homes abroad or had
vacations interrupted realize that
there were, literally and figuratively,
all kinds of people in the same boat.
Celebrities Pep Things Up 4
Toscanini went around being very
silent, but a friend of his wife's, Aus-
trian actress Eleanor Mendelson,
gave many interesting and laudatory
accounts of him. Miss Rubenstein was
quite "the life of the party," and
Miss Kennedy started the soliciting
for a fund for the families of sailors
lost at sea. Everyone did his bit
to make an unusual situation a plea-
sant one, and the only solemn mo-
ments were when everyone crowded
into the smoking room at night to
hear the European and American
Some passengers were leaving their
homeland to seek refuge in an un-
known country-and they were happy
in realizing their good fortune to es-
I cape the war.
For the cruisers who were on their
way to sunny California. a very plea-
,sant winter trip had come to a quick
end. Parties and entertainment for
them had at least started but for
us no formalities were even begun.
How could the program be elaborate
if many of the people had lost their
filled suit eases and trunks in the
scuffle of trains with no set schedule
and cars with no gasoline that existed
after the war had started? How
could it be elaborate if people were
leaving Euroue probably never to see
it again as they left it?
