March 14, 1941: Some time ago, this column told of the work of Ruby Berkley Goodwin, the Fullerton Negro poetess whose work has attracted national attention. Wendell Malliet & Co., New York, have just announced Mrs. Goodwin's first volume of poetry, "From My Kitchen Window," Lee Shippey says. 

THAT GREAT-WINGED monster, the B-19, is almost finished. I saw it yesterday and it was like seeing a nightmare, according to Tom Treanor.

Ask Paramount why Luise Rainer isn't being tested for Maria in "For Whom the Bell Tolls?" She'd be terrific, Jimmie Fidler says.

Also on the jump: Ruby Berkley Goodwin, former personal secretary to Hattie McDaniel and Ethel Waters, dies in 1961 at the age of 58.

Lee Shippey's opening 'graph reminds me of the posturing of the Tea Partiers. Nothing has changed in 70 years. The further Reicht you go, the more patriotic you proclaim you are.
