Vernon Scoll Story Taylor's 1 Runs Ow Editors nole: This is (he final dispatch in · a scries of three written by veteran DPI Hollywood correspondent Vcr- non Scott on the Eliabezth Taylor-Eddie Fisher Marital mixup. Today's dispatch deals with the couple's future and the role of Richard Burton. By VERNON SCOTT DPI Hollywood Correspondent HOLLYWOOD (UPD-Elizabct Taylor, 30, is perhaps the weall, iest working girl in the worl today. It is expected she will hav earned $2 million from "Cleopa ra" alone when the movie epi finally is completed. As the wido\ of Mike Todd subsequent show ings of "Around the World in 8 Days" will swell her fortune con siderably. She continues to be in great de mand by producers, insuring he freedom from financial fulmina tions. However, if a royal crest wer designed for Queen Liz the dolla sign would be less approprial than the triangle. For it is he proclivity for three-cornered es capades that has led to Eliza beth's greatest notoriety. The glamour girl's first publi cizcd triangle involved second hus band Michael Wilding, herself anc Todd. Wilding lost. The Debbie-Eddio-Liz contre temps was the. second. This time Debbie Reynolds was the loser. Now Elizabeth's public appear ances with costar Richard Burton have precipitated a third triangle and Eddie is the apparent loser Thus far Liz has managed to escape a winner. But in the event rumors of a Taylor-Burton ro mance arc (rue it is possible the dark haired screen siren may fine herself an also-ran for the firsl lime. Elizabeth, successful and inde pendent, has taken orders from no one since Todd's death. It s i. necessary for her to ask the a-tvice of anyone. She runs her own life. Former Coal Miner -But in the rough-hewn Burton onetime Welsh coal miner, she has met a man ' unlike any she has known before. He is a polishcc actor, sophisticated raconteur, and boon companion. At 36 he is three years older than Eddie Fisher. Unlike the gentle, easy going Fisher, beneath the Welshman's veneer, of charm lies a smoulder- ing spirit who can drink, brawl and wench with the best of 'em. Burton resembles the bombastic Todd in that he runs his own show, gives vent to his temper and has a roaring sense of humor. During World War II he pulled guardhouse duty for smashing every window in his barracks. He has been in more fights than he can count, most of which took place in his hometown, Pont- rhydyfen, Wales. Many of them were with his rough-and-tumble brothers. Though he is considered one o the finest Shakespearean actors in the world, the ruggedly handsome Burton also has starred on Broadway and in Hollywood movies. He married his wife, Sybil, a dozen years ago and they have two daughters, Kate, 4, and Jessica, 2, to whom the actor is devoted. During his sojourns in Hollywood, Burton, who is built more like a fullback than a Shakespearean actor, gained a reputation for cutting a swath through movietown's glamour girls. Romantic rumors connected him with almost all of his leading ladies-- just as they have with Liz. True or ficticious, Burton's am- Biography Talks First Club Duly For New 'Lions' !

The studio has plunged mor than $20 million into "Cleopatra. If it fails at the boxoffice, 201 Century-Fox might not surviv the financial disaster. Its moguls remember loo wel .he case History of "Joan o Arc," the picture starring Ingric 3ergman which was releasec shortly afler the Swedish star let ier husband and daughter, fo Italian director Roberto Hosse ini. It was a super-colossal bomb Public reaction to Miss Berg man's private life was credilec riend Brawler lywith providing the tremendoi i boxoffice drought, for "Joan Arc." r "Cleopatra" is scheduled to 1 « completed in June. Hollywood i 1- siders agree that Elizabeth's b lavior and the resultant public! will make the movie one of 111 '" great boxoffice hits of all tim 1 Popularity Will Continue The general feeling, too, is th; ier popularity will continue t burgeon, even should Burton di s solve his marriage to become th man in her life. It has been reported that L and her Welsh costar plan to af ', pear together in another pictui ' within a year. Until then the actress has no c announced whether she will re j main in Rome, retire to the horn she rented in Switzerland (Burto t is a Swiss resident,), or retur s to Hollywood or New York City Eddie, meanwhile, returns t * Hollywood to see his youngster ' and to pick up the threads of hi j career. A close friend said hi , first project would be a new rec ord album. The movie colony believes Ed die's future is less bright than hi wife's. He has never regainec the public esteem he enjoyed dur ing his marriage to Debbie. Twice involved in Liz's trian jles, Eddie has discovered three 'ears make a tremendous dif lerenee. This time he was ex pendable. Planners Consider Zoning, Rio Dell Street Problem A near capacity crowd crammed supervisors' chambers las! night when the Hnmboldl Planning Commission met to consider two hot issues, one al Rio Dell and the other at Arcata. The Rio Dell discussion arose after a letter from Mr. and Mrs. Floyd Coons of Rio Dell was read asking why residents on Rigby Avenue have never been able to get a street fronting their lots. Target for the attack was R. r Spain, land developer who so lots along the street. Home ow ers last night charged that Spa had sold them their lots with th understanding that he would bui streets, but he has never done s One member of the Rio Dell con tigcnt maintained that he was no aware that the home-owners' were responsible for building anc maintaining their own street until lis property was paid for Ma; 28, 1358, and Spain approached lim for a road easement. Spain has told planning commission members that properly owners were informed, before buy- ng their lots, that the road was a private road, but the residenls on Rigby Avenue deny this unanimously. Corra'do Pinochi, commission member, 'suggested that Spain anc the property owners share road building expenses to bring them up to county specifications. This is necessary before the county will accept a road. Marjorie Childs, assistant county attorney, asked why the people should have o pay. "He's the subdivider," she said. Both L. L. Bryan and Pinoch agreed (hat the Department of 3 ublic Works should deal with Spain, and N. J. Lund read a etler written by Harvie Patterson, then road commissioner, to Spain dated 1954 which told him o bring the road to a point where t would be accepted into the coun- y system. Lund explained- to the group, rho said that they had been main- aining the road themselves with ibsnlutely no assistance from Spain, that Spain needs one casement on the end of Rigby for rainage, then he will proceed wilh he work. The county, he said, vill do nolhing until such an case- ncnl is procured. He said thai pain had agreed lo build the trcets in front of unsold lots, bill lat people who had bought prop- rty would he responsible for the rea in front of their homes. He aid that (he tract was not a sub- ivis on, and- people who bought ots on Ihc streets had no guaran- cc of improvement. However, on a motion by Com- nissioner Carl Miller, the board greed lo lake legal action to orcc Spain to bring Ihe road up n county standards. Ernest Bednar, appearing as pokesman for a group of 2(1 clition signers who asked that 'reston Place northeast of Area- a, be zoned single-family rcsi- encc, said that his group wanted rotcclion to avoid confusion such s exists in the lirisack trailer ourl versus Azalea Hill resident ispule. His view was shared by Chuck amsey and Loren Abboll, who olh asked for protection of prop- ·ly values. Opposition was ininiedialc and retentions. Chief among oppo- cnls were persons who desire lo build duplexes for rental units in the area. Evelyn Fielding, a teacher, said she had bought her property with the intention of building rental units to aid her income when she retires. Her stand was supported by Andrew Stewart, who also wants duplexes, Mrs. Joe Gray who owns; six lots, James Williams who owns one, and Estell McDowell who charged that the move was premature and asked that ier considerable holdings be left out. Barney McMann opposed the move because he did not care or additional rcstricitions, and Vern Williams, a chinchilla farmer, asked to remain out of the zone. Bednar said he was sorry to ind so much opposition. He said he did not know what the answer vas, but "at least we made an attempt to solve problems before hey started." Also appearing as a proponent vas L. E. Richter, who said he telieved "we have reached a stalemate." ·Bryan moved that the petition be returned to the signers until a plan satisfactory to more ol he residents could be formed, lis motion was approved unani- moulsy.

However, . there was some dif- erence in opinion on whether the c Ian was necessary at this time, f nd how the plan would be fi- [ anced. t The Arcata Planning Commis- i ion had recommended, with the \ ndorsement of the Arcata Area ' Chamber of Commerce, that the ouncil approve a plan to avai icmselves of the services of the f alifornia Slate Planning Office nd the Federal government to ring in outside professional planers.

Governor Hails Latest Donation Of Redwood Grove SACRAMENTO - The Save (he edwoods League will donate a 6,000 - acre forest to the state for addition to the Humboldt Redwoods State Park, Gov. Brown announced Thursday. The land, part of the Rockefel Ier forest, contains some of the world's tallest trees. The governor called it "one of the world's greatest stands of rees." The land also is needed for work on curbing erosion on Bui Creek Flat belov, where about 700 trees have been destroyed since 1955. "This is a magnificent acquisi- ion," Brown said in a statement. "It represents another important step in the preservation the great redwood forests of Northern California." "Now one can only hope thai the disaster which has threatened the Rockefeller forest for so many ars will not come until we can forest and engineer the lands as to minimize great flooding Bull Creek," Brown said. Newton B. Drury, former state d national park^chief who now leads the Save the Redwoods jeague, raid the land was pur- ased from the Fairhurst Tim- ier Co. of Fortuna, which in turn lurchased 7,400 acres on the Janoe and Bull Creek Watered. For Arcata d Reaction . :an'l measure the benefits of such ( a plan to Arcata in dollars anc :ents. We have to have an ultimate plan," said Falor, a former jlanning commission chairman. Falor said after the meeting liat he felt an outside profession- 1 plan, which under the city's orm of government would be assed on by local officials and itizens, would be more realistic n the long run than if the plan t vere developed by local persons perhaps too close to the forest | o see the trees." , Mayor Dalee Dolson referred the ' Ian to budget sessions to begin x ater this month.
