Even Judy Uarlanl drew a grass widower in Dave Rose, ex-husband of Martha Rnye; and Gene Tiernoy, in becoming Mrs Olgn Cassini, got the 28-year-old former mate of Merry Fahrney, patent medicine heiress. What with the marriages of Cassini Pat Di Cicco, Frnnchot Tone and iv- tor Mature, the ranks of Hollywood's men-about-town were considerably thinned. Most notable playboys now at large are Errol Flynn fscuar'ated if not quite divorced, from Lili Damih.) and Bruce Cabot, who were usher and best man, respectively, at the Di- Cicco-Gdoria anderbilt, wedding. gThe year was R romantically busy one for the of ten-married Westmmore brothers, a family of studio make-up men. Perc married Mrs. Juliette Novis, Ern married Betty Herron, and Buddy married Rosemary Lane The other Lane sisters also got into the records with a marriage for Lolo and a divorce for Pricilla. Surprise of the year was the marriage of Bette DavJs to Arthur Fransworth, executive of an eastern airplane accessory company. NThey Admit H i There were few formal wedding ceremonies, but there was less shyness among Hollwood people about admitting marriage and divorce plans. Only two secret marriages were dis- coverod-those of Director Gregory T , J a and Mrs> Grace Garland, and Jack Buetel and CCereatha Browning. Hamliffs in divorce cases gave the movie colony few laughs in 1941 Jddest details were those set forth by Sally Payne in divorcing William Te- aak, a gag writer. She said he would- H let her drink milk, eat liver or oysters, part her hair on the left side or register to vote. She charged that ie told her what to wear, how to walk not to talk in front of groups of people because she "never made any sense " and that he objected to her knitting because "he said I always got a stupid expression on my face when I knitted."

Temporary and permanent government buildings are going up all over the place. Standing on the White House lawn, Di Maggio could line a fly to the steel pile that is to be the capital's biggest downtown hotel But none of the face-lifting can compare with that which will grow out of the purchase of 246-year-old Friendship Estate for a $10,000,000 housing development for defense workers For at least 140 years, Friendship has been one of the show places of Washington. It was then that it came into the possession of Georgetown college (now university) and on its broad acres was constructed a monastery for student monks. More than 40 years ago, it was purchased by John R. McLean, the late Washington newspaper publisher, and its 75 acres refurbished. For all of that time it has been one of the social and political centers of Washington, for after the death of the senior McLean it became the home of Evalyn Walsh McLean, owner of the fabled "Hope diamond." The autobiography of the colorful daughter of picturesque old Tom Walsh, gold mining king and one-time senator from Colorado, has made a racy book and much of it is filled with the doings at Friendship. "O mad place, truly!" Mrs. McLean wrote, "—with a monkey in my bathroom, a llama on the lawn, and our corridors shrill with the curses of our parrot (learned from a diplomat). In the stables when my children wished to play at being grownups, they could find there midget horses and the coach, brightly painted, that had once PAGI THKtt belonged. to General Tom Thumb. 3fce cellar was richly stocked with wines and spirits as if that were the first concern of the owners. The kitchen was a place as artful in cuisine as any hostelry." H was (here in the "fabulous 'twtti* lies,' that President Harding cahle with his cronies, Senators Fred Hal*, Davis Elkins and Joseph Freylinghuy- sen, to play golf. H was there that John W. Weeks, Harry Daugherty, and Vice-President Curtis came to ploy poker. The Coolidges also were visitors there. The parade continues even now, for it was there that Senator Robert Reynolds, of North Carolina, married 21 -year-old Evalyn, Mr*. McLean's only daughter. MONEY CAN BUY StJOSEPH GENUINE:. PURE .ASPIRIN (L U. 1113) FRIDAY NIGHT January 16th LEGION HALL Over Re-Employment Office Featuring Arizona Charley and His Buckaroos A BUCK (and tax) Ladies Free Harrison in Hollywood PAUL HARRISON, NHA Service Correspondent Cupid Finally Scores Movie Victory HOLLYWOOD—Thos department's^ bureau of martial statistics and domestic turmoil has just emerged from its cloister with a heartening report on the year 1941. It seems the marriages of Hollywood people outnumbered the divorces 97 to 4G. This is an unprecendented score and must be significant of something, whether a boom in pure sentimentality or a drawing together of mivie folk for comfort anrlsecurity in uncertain times. True, there were a couple of fumbles among the marriages: Moonstruck Jury Canova's vows, exchanged with Private James Ripley in Honolulu, were annuled; and Mary Brain and Jon Whitcomb, who told it to a preacher in May al- ready have recanted to a judge. Those errors, though, are more than balanced on the romantic side by three couples who decided they had been to hasty about divorces in previous years. Thomas Mitchell married his former wife, Anne Brewer Hier; Robert Armstrong remarried Claie Louise Amstrong; and stan. Laurel, apparently as bewildered as his friends by a series om implusive entanglements, persuaded Virginia Ruth Laurel to try it again. Two-Timers .

First Dolf got loose and scared half a bus-load of convention-bound schoolmarms off the premises. Flooey goes fifteen lunches, good for forty cents average, making six dollars the establishment couldn't afford to lose. When I told Dolf where he got off, he turned sulky on me and crawled into a bush, and wouldn't come out until Old Swoby showed up and took him fishing. Along about five o'clock a load of Florida grapefruit rolled in and Marty Spurgeon, an Ohio boy 1938, that I hadn't seen since climbed down. "Marty," I said, "you're sick." "So what?" he said. "This cargo has to be in Haleigh tonight.' "That's as may be," "Stick out your tongue." I said. He did. It looked like a secondhand mink tippet. I dug out my clinical thermometer and pushed it into his face. "One hundred and four," I said, adding half a degree to impress him. "O. K., Mom," he said. "Trot out the old medicine chest." "Marty," I said. "It's the hospital." Well, he started to beef, and then he started to cough and in a minute he had both hands to his chest, and his eyes got scared. The chills had struck him. It was penumonia, all right. They full tot it heavy, these 24-hour drivers. So I boosted him in and wrapped him up and delivered him at Level-ton Hospital. "Who's going to guarantee his Ml?" the little punk at the desk wanted to know. "I am," I said, and I stuck a fistful of bills under his nose, and the fist. "Satisfactory?" * * * "VT/ELL, I'd done my good deed for the day, and what did I get for it? Trouble. Because if I'd been on the job, maybe I could Jiave headed oil' that mixed party of four. They came in a live- thousand-dollar limousine dragging the flossiest kind of trailer a regular plushcart, and made themselves at home. I didn't like the kind of sounds coming from the outfit. Before looking into it, I made the rounds. Dolf was back in his box, smelling of fish as usual after a spell with his pal, Old Swoby. Doc was inside the stockade checking up on his day's take. Juddy was in Hie Feederia talking with Maurie Sears, who had developed a Tambay habit. A swell-dressed bird was looking under the hood of the high- priced car. He turned around and looked me up and down, and said in a voice to match his dead pan: "Got anything fit to eat?" A blonde floozie with marcelled hair stuck her head out of the trailer. "Hey, Bernie! Ask that fat, gray witch can't we get some service here," she said. "Look," I said. "I'm running this ranch. You aren't our line of trade." "Yeah? I'll take a look after dinner. If we like it we stay." Then he handed me a fishy stare. 'You wouldn't want to start anything in the line of trouble, would you?" Well, I wouldn't. Not with his dnd. I've seen plenty shooting in my day. And I knew this lad was bad. If I'd had a bunch of my truckles there to back me, now, I might have felt different. Bernie and his fiat-faced friend Tick strolled over to where Doc was standing outside his stockade. Bernie said: "We're a coupla young mining men from Broad- , vay and 42nd Street.' Ever hear of Broadway, fella?" "Yes." Doc pointed to his 'keep out' sign. "You'll be wasting your ime," he said. One of the broads in the trailer began to yell for Bernie. Back if her, the other frilla was using anguage like it don't d'o a camp a bit of good. Juddy came out of the Feederia vith Maurie Sears after her. "What awful people, Mom!" she aid. "You're not going to let hem stay, are you?" Maurie Sears said quietly: "May handle this for you, Mrs. Baumer?" "What would you do?" I asked him: sieve before you got near 'em." Doc came out of his stockade and joined us. "Can I be of help?" he said. "Another Christian martyr," I id. "Do you want to qualify for an epitaph?" said. "Haven't you a pistol on the place?" he asked. "I have, but you don't get it. Why, it's a cinch that those two gorillas have got an automatic apiece, and likely or not a tom- my-gun stowed away in the trailer. They'd dot you up like a I sent Nollie to crack up some ice and put it in a pitcher. I carried it over to the plush cart, myself. The two rats got sociable, after a couple of drinks. As soon as I could break away I came back to my gang. "Just what I hoped," I said. "The youngest frilla is country bred. Thai's liable to help." * * * T GOT Dolf out of his box and gave him a little soothing talk. Bernie met me at the door. He took a gander at Dolf, snuggling quiet and peaceful in my arms. "What's that?" he said. "A friend of mine," I said and I set him carefully down on the floor, hoping that he wasn't going to get hurt. His gal let out an awful screech. "It's a skunk!" "Nuts!" Bernie said and made a back-reach. The doll's shriek near tore a hole in the roof. Well, the bullet struck the floor close enough to jar Dolf. He was .ised to polite company; all the fuss and yelling didn't go so good .vith him. Did he knock that bunch for a row of shambles! It was worse than a fire panic. They got stuck in the door, all yowling and clawing like a tangle of cats. . Bernie was waving his gat iround like crazy, until Doc took it away from him and tossed it over the palings. Then Doc held his nose with his left hand and took the gangster's arm with his right, led him out to the road and advised him to keep going. The ape had fallen over the bank, which was all right, and was swimming across the stream. We towed the trailer half a mile downwind and left it in a clearing. The camp wasn't too pleasant that night, on account of the breeze being wrong. "What shall I do with the gun?" Doc asked me. "Keep it," I said. "A tourist camp is no Sunday school. It might come in handy. I'll give I you some lessons." He nodded ! and put it in his pocket. We saw no more of the coupla young mining men from Broadway, but we heard plenty about that night's work. It was a swell ad for the Feederia and it made Dolf the best known character in the county. > (To Be Continued) Styled By "BETTY ROSE" and "MARY LANE" S WING into the SPRING MOOD ... in one of these "Betty Rose," "Mary-Lane" or "Junior-Lane" COATS and SUITS.
