JThuyaday, October 24, 1986 HOPE, STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS John Barrymore Likes Own Stories Romantic Actor Gets "Kick" Out of Telling i About Self ' ! By ROBBIN COONS * Associated Press Correspondent HOLLYWOOD-As long ns there I.s a John Barryrnore, there will be new John Barrymoro stories. There always have been, nnd the nnecdotcs arising from the most recent journey of the youngest Bnrrymtrc across the front pages only add to the collection. While Elaine Barrie, his 19-year-old protege whose trip across country after her fleeing "Caliban" provided the motivation for a serio-comic front- page melodrama, was left behind in the cast, John waited in Hollywood for .something to turn up, but he did not wait long before heading cast again. Dolores Costcllo, who left their Beverly Hills home with the two children while Jolm was in the east, has said flatly there will be no change in her divorce plans—which leaves John, unless she has a change of heart, dependent entirely on movie prospects for something to do. Stories Started Early "John Bnrrymoro stdrics" began their course almost as soon as John made his world debut—and that was 53 years ago. John himself tells those Barrymore yarns better than anyone else, and delights in injecting n satir- ^yil jibe at himself as he tells them, ••pnc of John's favorite stories con- terns the time he was caught in the San Francisco earthquake and fire of 1906. He had been playing in a theater there, anl the show having closed, he had vone to the opern, in evening clothes, and returned to his quarters at an early hour, shortly before the first earth shock. He rushed out again, .still in full dress, and was roaming the streets 'dressed for the earthquake." Put to Work Despite his garb, lie was set to work by some soldiers at sorting stones. Later, when he wrote Ethel of his experiences, she showed the letter to their uncle, John Drew, who commented: "It took a convul of nature to get him out of bed and the United States army to put him to work." John had quite a stage name before he came to pictures, where he became "the screen's greatest lover," He began making talkies with "General Crack" and in later years he has abandoned the "greatest lover" role for serious characterizations or light comedy. Other stagebrcd actors may have sighed to return to the stage, but not John—"Stage work is too hard for a lazy man—this is the life."

"Tony and Tommy are Inside," said Wataon. "Tony's up at the entrance to the suite, and Tommy la with the manager. The peo- plo'd chocked out Just about 30 minutes before wo got hero. The managoi£aya they seemed to be in a hunty." "I'll bot they were," said Larry. They entered tho lobby and crossed to tho desk, whero Tommy Waters was talking with tho manager, a worried-looking individual in a morning coat. "I hopo you'll be able to conduct your investigation quietly," he said. "It would lie a bad thing for un to have any publicity about this." "Yes, I imagine it would," salt! Larry. "One good way to avoid things like that is to be a little careful about who you rent rooms to." lie- took the key which the manager handed him, glanced at tho number, nald curtly, "You needn't come with us," and led tho other agents to the elevator. Thoy wont up and found Tony LaRocco lounging at tlA apartment entrance. Larry unlocked tho door and they all went inside, closing tho door after thorn. Tho suite consisted of a large, ornately-furnished living room, two bedrooms, an elaborately- tiled bathroom, and a small kit- chonot and dining alcove. Larry looked about him appreciatively. "They did themselves well, these birds," ho said. Tommy Waters nodded. They crossed tho living room and entered tho larger o£ tho bedrooms. It was iu disorder. The twin beds wore unmade, tho drawers ot bureaus and dressing tables stood opon, a tray containing highball glasses wltfc the •dregs still -in- them stood .on a little table botwcen the bods, and A crumpled newspaper lay on tho floor nearby. There was a discarded nocktlo on a dresser, and a crumpled shoot ot wrapping paper beside it. "Nothing much to sec hero," observed Larry. "Let's look farther." The bathroom was similarly disordered. The other bedroom soomed not to have been occupied, and was in apple plo order; but tho dining alcove table still bore plates and cups with the remains of a moal, and empty bottles stood on tho shelves of tuc little kitchcnct. Larry inspected tho alcove table.- "Sot for three," ho Raid. "Looks like supper rather than breakfast. .Well, wo'll soon find out."- T A riOCCO was inspecting the -*- 1 Used glasses nnd empty bottles In the kitehenot. lie looked up to remark, "Some swell prints bore." "Good," Bald Lurry, "G<H 'em." Lnllocco got out the apparatus from the little bag Larry had brought with him and went to work. Lnrry continued Ills Inspection of tho dining alcove, while the other men explored the living room. "This stuff camo from the kitchen downstairs," bo flnid at last. "They didn't prepare it themselves. Lot's got the manager up here." One of the agents reached for tho phono and summoned that Individual. He arrived In a few minutcH. Btill wearing his look of apprehensive and injured innocence. "I want to know when those pcoplo last had nn order from the kitchen," said Larry. "Kind out tor me nnd send up the waiter who served it." Tho tnntmgar bowed nnd left, to return a little lator with a waiter. The waiter explained that ho had served supper for three in Uio npartmeut the night before, at about 3:30. Two men and one woman were in the party; the woman nnd one of this mon were the people who occupied tho suite regularly; the other man was a visitor who frequently camo to the apartment but nover spent the uight there. Larry took out a rogue's gallery picture of Wingy Lewis and handed it to him with a (|ues- tion. The waller looked at it nnd nodded silowly. "I think so," he said. "I can't bo quito niiro. It looks like him, though." "Did you notice his hands?" nskod Larry. Tho waller looked at him, uncomprehending; then a light dawned in his eyes and he nodded. "Yes, yes,"' he said excitedly. "His left hand—he had but four ringers." "That's him," said Larry, slipping tho picture back In hia pocket. Larry bent over tho table. "Come here, Tony," ho said. "Soe if you can get any prints off the silver." He looked up at the waiter spcculutivcly. "Do you remember," he naked, "when you laid the places, did you happen to wipe off the silver with a napkin?" The. wititcr looked nt - -him blankly, then shook his head. "Then your prints would probably be on it?" VYes. And also, perhaps, the prints of the bus boy who carries tho silver from the place where it is washed'nnd dried to tho rack from which wo collect it." Larry ttirnod to tho manager. "Find that bun boy and get him up here," be said. "Menn- whllo —" turning back to the waiter as tlio manager left, "let us have your fingerprints, will you?" Grinning broadly, the waiter complied. Tho bun boy, looking vary scared, was brought up a moment Inter, and hia prints likc- wero recorded. An hour later Laity made a final survey of the place, and nodded to the others, "We're through here," he said. Let's go." As they reached (he lobby he Bought out the doorman. "Where do the guest* here usually park their cars?" b<? nuked. The doorman named a commercial garage a block away. Lallocco and Tommy Waters called a cab and wont downtown, while the other three hurried to. the garage. There Larry sought out the manager and produced onco moro his rogues' iallery por^ trait of Wlngy Lewis. The manager studied It thoughtfully, then nodded. "Looks like him," he sold. "What kind of a car did he drive?" "Well, ho came hero with a La. Place sedan," said the manager. "Then about a week or ten days ago he came In with a now one— a big 12-cyllnder Frontenac, dark blue with gold beading and blue wire wheels." Ho stuck bis hcail out of the little wicket in his office, where they wcro talking, and called a colored attendant, "Hoy, Hank! Come hero, will you?" Hank came over; a tall, Intelligent-looking colored man in tan breeches and puttees, a blue shirt opon at the throat Larry immediately asked him about Mr, Lewis's big blue Frontenac: had he ever noticed anything unusual about It? "Nothln' 'ccpt that It was awful heavy," said Hank. "Ah," said Larry softly. "How'd you happen to notice that?" "Well," said Henry, "he brought it In one night nn' told me to change the oil, so I took it up on the third floor and run It on the rack. 'Stead of bavin' pits here we got wooden racks, like—" He gestured with his hands to Illustrate their arrangement of Inclined parallel"™ Us. "I run It up on there, and the first uprlpht on the right- hand rail broke. Didn't break off short—just cracked an' split. I back It off an' had a look at the upright. Good strong piece of wood; I never thought anything loss'n a fiWfton truck would crack it. So I took the car over to the flllin' station on the corner, where they got pits, an' had It done." Beyond that, Hank had noticed nothing. He was dismissed, and Larry turned to the manager and asked him when Lewis had left that morning. "Just about an hour ago," tho manager replied, "Bought 10 gallons of gas and shoved off, with a girl in the front seat beside him and suitcases in the back." After jotting down the license number of the car, and ascertaining that Lewis had neither asked for any road maps nor made any casual remarks that would give any clew as to tho direction he had planned to take. Larry and his men returned to the federal building. Is his office Larry reassembled his staff about him. "Now," he said, "we've got to drift around town and ask ten million questions. Somewhere around Dover there must bo someone who has some sort of notion what part of the country theso people were apt to head for. It's up to us to nnd out—fast." (To Be Continued) Craig Lacks Dash But Gets to Top Career of Army's New Chief of Staff Is Long Administrative One WASHINGTON -(/]>,_ An officer whose long service has been un- j marked by the spectacular, tops off his career bx taking over the highest job in the American army. 1 General Mnlin Craig, semi-bald, GO j years old, who has been chosen as 'army chief of staff, looks and acts like a conservatively dressed and affable executive of any great corporation—and that is just about what he is now to the army of the United States. His main record has been made not at a combat officer but in the important but less colorful tasks of administering the complex affairs of marching men. Executive Jobs His Lot Tho distinguished service medal he has a right to wear—but almost never does—was for exceptionally meritorious servic'e rather than for gallantry in action. Executive jobs—he was chief of staff of the first army crop* in France and later of the army of occupation in Germany—have been his principal lot. Since his West Point days, Craig has been a good average soldier, doing his job, friends say, nnd reaching out for no medals. Old comrades in arms describe him as having an exceptionally good sense of humor and an unusual ability to get things done without too many orders. As a youngster in West Point, Craig was not an exceptional student, a friend of .40 years recalls, but ho was first cadet captain in his senior year, the highest military ranking then available to any cadet. The designation was made, not by fellow classmen who liked the stout young Craig and affectionately called him by a nickname approximating "Tubby," but by the superintendent of the academy, on recommendation of the commandant. The captaincy meant that Craig was regarded as the outstanding all-around soldier in his class. Born in Army Tradition His latest task, as commandant of the army war college here was accomplished With a characteristic lack of fanfare. His duty was to supervise instruction for officers in a sort of post-graduate university of war tactics, but it was regarded by the high command as one of the utmost importance. He was fifth in rank below General Douglas MacArthur, whom he succeeds as chief of staff, when the promotion came. Born in the army tradition—his father was in the service and so is his own son—he has an unusual military adaptability. General Craig was 60 last August and probably will not be able to finish his four year term. Compulsory retirement at 64 would wind up his work some two months before the end of the tour of duty. He appears to be in excellent health. A former footba(l player at West Point, he now plays golf regularly to keep down a slight rotundity that survived his long years as a cavalryman. Tokio Mr. and Mrs. Pierce Hutson of Doyle vislttd the family of their son, Mr. and Mrs. Barney Hutson here Sunday. Mr. and Mrs. A. M.
