Virginia Hagen


Des Moines Girl Collects Star Signature

This Des Moines girl should be the envy of movie fans and autograph hunters. A part of the regular duties of WAVE Virginia Hagen, aviation machinist's mate, third class, is to get the signature of Lieut. Tyrone Power, former movie star, on a check sheet as he makes a flight at Corpus Christi (Tex.) naval air station.
