One prong was a solid rod. The other prong was a half- circle of metal so designed as to snuggle onto the rod. Proper use of the gadget re- quired the use, too. of a kero- sene lamp a not unreason- able requirement for that day. You took the gadget and dropped it down into the chim- ney of the lighted lamp so that the handles held it suspended. After a proper time the gadg- el was removed, handles were pressed to open the prongs, the rod and its companion piece were wiped with a cuptnwel for the removal of collected soot. (This step was really unneces- sary if you happened to have black hair, i The cleaned, opened, still hot gadget was raised carefully to the head. Strands of hair were wrapped by hot fingertips around the rod. The other prong was allowed to come to rest on the locks. Sizzle. Hiss. The hair was curled. Or, more accurately, it was crinkled. For countless years the curl- ing iron, heated over the lamp, did its work for women. Then man, with straight- haired woman at his side, be- gan the climb into the age of electricity. The curling iron, woman de- creed, would grow a cord. It did. It was electrified. May- he it was electrified because the kerosene lamp to heat it had disappeared. But the electric curling iron didn't, at that time, come into its own as you might expect. "Permanent" n v i n g ma- chines did it in. "permanent" as in three or lour months.

(Staff Photo by Henry Wolff Jr.) Rowena Beauty Crowned As Runnels FB Queen By tYNV HEINZERLIMG BERLIN (API East German guards with machine guns shot a young railway policeman at the Communist wall Thursday night as he fled to the West. He man- aged to stagger 15 feet into West Berlin, then collapsed and died. The shooting, second at the wall in six days, climaxed a day of multiple developments. The East German regime named one of its generals to take over in East Berlin from the So iet commandant whose job was abolished by Moscow Wednesday. The obvious Soviet intent is. tc force the Western allies on a course toward dealing wilh the unrecognized East German re- gime. The United States, Britain and France jointly served notice that Russia cannot end four-power rule of, Berlin without their con- sent.

He died as he Was taken to a hospital, i Doctors said he may have been shot after he had reached West Related story, Pg. 2-B Berlin territory. They doubted that he could have made his way through the barbed wire with his wounds. He had his gun with him; it had not been fired. There were unexplained shots across the wall at another point in East Berlin Thursday night. Po- lice said they had heard 30 shots in the Kreuzberg-Treptow district. Later more shots were heard in the same locality, but nothing could be seen from West Berlin. The Wesar slaying occurred in the French sector. Because of the tension gripping Berlin, police and French troops quickly dispersed the crowd that gathered at tht scene on the Western side. Mayor Willy Brandt of West Berlin arrived soon after the shooting and helped to quiet the crowd, it eventually dispersed. Maj. Gen. Helmut Poppe, 35, was named by East Germany to com- mand both army units and border guards in East Berlin.
