'Ma Kettle' Ends Contract With MGM By BOB THOMAS HOLLYWOOD (ft — Marjorie Main, who is as much a character off the screen as on, may retire from acting. Then again she may not. The veteran actress is coming to the end of her MGM contract March 23, and she confesses. "I'm counting the days." As of March 23, she'll be a free woman. 1 saw her in the gomey dressing room she uses at Universal- International, where she has done a sizable number of losnouts. I asked her how long she had been at MOM, and she guessed around 14 years. She actually came out here in 1938 to recreate her stage role in "The Women." How docs she feel about leaving? "Well, I'm sorry about leaving a lot of good friends at Metro,'" she remarked. ."But I wasn't too happy about the last two pictures I did there. One was 'The Long, Long trailer.' and I had only two tiny scenes in the picture. One of them was cut out." "Then did 'Rose Marie.' They decided that something was needed to relieve the plot so Bert Lahr and I did a musical number. Oh, I mean it was a lot of work. Took Us six weeks in all. And then they threw the number out of the picture because it interfered with the plot!" Miss Main admitted that she waa toying with the idea of retiring. "It might be fun to just do nothing after working all your life." she said. If she did continue pictures, it would merely be one a year, she added.. But she also might return to the stage. Max Gordon has offered her the second company of "Lullaby," which Mary Boland is doing on Broadway. At present she is starring PRESCOTT NEWS Monday February 22 The Women of the Presbyterian Church will meet on Monday afternoon at 1:30 at the church for a World Mission Study, weekend with her grand parents.

He'd never been in 9 pool before. , "They should realize at our age you can't do all this physical stuff, You just don't have the energy that younger people do. We're too old to be running around. Percy's two years older than I am." He's 65. She added that she is constantly amazed at the success of (he "nice and corny" Kettle pictures.
