Wandering Singer, Author Has Never Owned Store Bought Suit By WILLA GRAY MARTIN New York, April 20 — (/T'j— Woody "tuthric, 30-year old Oklahoma- lorn wandering singer and author if "Bound For Glory," who has ling before thousands at town hall ind Madison Square Garden never las owned a "store-bought" suit. That is, a business suit with trousers and coat matching. This is one of the lesser - known statistical facts about Woody (named for Woodrow Wilson) who las been very much in print since 3ENETIERNEY if LYNN BARI GEORGE MONTGOMERY Starts Wednesday MICKEY EOONEY becomes a one- roqo A. E. F., as i "Bungls" tor Britain! iis hard-fisted autobiography was published. When I brought up the subject of clothes and the man at a parly lis publishers gave him the other day, he recalled that he'd spent a childhood in his older brother's hand-down trousers, graduating into navy wool trousers, a sailor's turtle neck sweater and pea jacket. In special deference to his debut as a writer, he had bought a pair of khaki trousers which he wore with an' open-necked shirt. Standing in the middle of the Iviing room of a fashoinable Madison Avenue apartment, singing ballads he had written for his guitar, he looked like a small and rough edition of Will Rogers. From the same slate as Rogers, he comes honestly by the immortal humorits' nasal drawl — and Woody's hummor, too, is dry and crackly. But the resemblance ends there. Listening to him sing his melancholy songs (and he can make up a ballad as quick as a frog jumps off a log) one can not but wonder what sort of parents and childhood produced this wistful soul. Woody Guthrie grew up in Okemah, Oklahoma, where his father was a smallscale land speculator. The town struck oil and boomed. In Woody's retrospective eyes, the boom-chasers were "rougher than a corn cob, wilder than a woodchuck, hotter than a depot-stove." Woody himself, slight but wiry and curly-haired, became a sort of legent even as a boy when he fought the champion boxers of his county seat. He was always in a fight and some part of him was "puffed up all the time, and the other purls going down." But, though he wus always the winner, he hated the fights and the people who goaded him into them. In the end, he always divided the money thrown at him by the crowd between himself and the boy he'd battered up. This urge for holding his own in physical combat was inherited from his pioneering father. His mother taught him to sing old 'songs, told him stories about each ballad. She was small and had dark hair and was the kind of wo- man who always looked at a pretty thing and wondered, "who had to make it? Who owned it and loved it before'.'" Woody was M when he got a job shining shoes, meeting the night train for a hotel. He was 16 when he first hit the highway and took a trip around the Gulf of Mexico, watering strawberries, picking grapes, helping carpenters and well drillers, cleaning yards, chopping weeds. Homesick, he returned to Okc- mah and lived in a one room shack for which ho paid $25 — in stall- merits. Meanwhile the things that Woody had seen and heard were knocking about in his brain and getting him so excited he felt compelled to tell someone about them. He tried to teach himself to paint, first copying any thing in sight. His uncle taught him to play a guitar, and the boy made his way across the country singing in saloons, auto camps, freight cars, Most of those songs were made up and they all inevitably have a tale of it-needy which we sometime call "hillbilly," sometimes "ballad." The music gave him more release than the painting. "A picture, you paint it once, and it bothers you for 40 years. But with a song, you sing it out, and it soaks in people's ears and they jump up and down and sing it with you, and then you get a job singing it again.' " Crossing the country, Woody never made more than a dollar or two a night. He seemed satisfied to roll up experience in living — carrying with him no clothes and no possessions that couldn't be stuffed under his sweater. A radio station put him on the ah" and he made up new ballads each day as painlessly as an announcer and libbing a "good-morning." He received more than 15,000 letters from sailors, farm families, factory workers and even divorcees up in Reno. But the radio people said his stuff was too specialized and not enough like popular love songs. So he found himself looking around for another job until he reached the Rainbow • Room at Radio City. He was practically accepted there, but a woman walked over and said. "I have it! We can dress him in one of those durlnig clown suits. It will bring out his cjUciintncs." He got out in a hurry — and took his guitar on another trip west. Now he's back in town, singing at Army camps, contributing songs to the Department of Agriculture shows, and getting himself warmed up to write another book. And he may get himself a "store bought" suit any day now. MARMSS EASTER FROCKS For the past two weeks new dresses have been arriving almost daily—Navys, Blacks, Pastel shades, and Prints.
