Los Angeles -- Anita O'Day, who once earned $2,000 a week as a vocalist, is starting on the comeback trail after serving five months in the Women's section at Terminal Island for possession of Heroin. "From now on, I'm flying high and straight," said Anita, shown in action at a night club. This four week stand gives her $200 per week. (1954)
