V ^-nw? AUG 18, 1933 Part Can Make Or Break Film Actress Dorothy Burgess Succeeds As Native Girl, Finding It Difficult To Achieve Place Otherwise Hollywood--One pa-t can make or break a star, but mo\ieiand se 1 - dom witnesses the peculiar example ot one. ro'e lifting a. plajer into the limelight so 6ucccssfull that the plaers cart-er Sa a'trost ruined b that success; '·"Dorothy -Burgess., suffered .THE CORPUS CIIRISTI TIMES KILLED BY WHEEL AT AUTO RACE * roar ot speeding race cars, a flash of a wheel unloosed screams from th» ctw\i oi spectators, sma tt\o DaUa a girls were fatallj in jured Both *rs nov, dead The two tfrls, with another s^l and a rnan, \seni to the nisht auto "-aces in Dallas The wheel came off of the speeding car ard ran -wild striking th« heads oi the two sirls Pictured abo\e Mis* Shemlt !·?, died in a ston Ume Visa r c Hasten., 21, lingered, unconscious a *veek before sha succumbed from such an experience, ifost Aspirins actresses .would have, made any sacrifice ; to get a "part, such as that o£ Tonia ih'/'in Old'Arizona," In which Miss Burgess mads her debut nearly five years ago, but, take it from Dorothy herself,'that wasn't such a stroke ot good'fortune; It set her back in at least four years and cost" her approximately ?100,000:in salary. :-: . . -| "I was definitely stamped as a I typo and I practically impossible to. convince directors - I could, do other roles," says Dorothy. "It has been only within the last' fe\v ihonths that I have been . able to climb out of the ruck of native girl parts." ; . ' Her portrayals in such recent pictures as "Hold Tour Man," "It's Great to Be Alive" and "Ladies'Must Live." have served to remove the Tonia stamp and' definitely start Dorothy on the road to regaining her earlier fan favor. It was a peculiar quirk. : of fate, too, that placed Dorothy in the Tonia roll. A niece of Fay Eainter and a relative of the late Dave Montgomery, of Montgomery and. Stone fame, she first came to notice as a ' specially dancer. t Then she drifted into sweet young ingenue roles. She followed Helen Hayes in "Dancing/ Mothers" and then scored her biggest success in "Tho Adorable Liar,'' a play originally intended for Miss Hayes. It was while playing- a. season of summer stock in Rochester, X. Y., that George Cultor, now a motion picture but then a stage' director, decided to experiment with his troupe and cast Miss Burgess as the tempestuous native girl in "Tho Squall." She made such a hit in that rolo that when a Los Angelas producer, brought the ploy to the west coast ho brought Dorothy out to head tho company. V/hcn the man who was to direct "In Old Arizona" sn\y her, Dorothy immediately was engaged for the film. Although Dorothy makea a most convincing screen vamp, like Myrnni Loy uho is quite the opposite away from tho cameras. Sho has a good jcnso of humor nnd jet bl.ick eyes that constantly danco in amusement --somewhat vivid contrasts to her mother, who .was .known, as Grace Bninter on tho stagehand she never has been married.

Courtney, aviation editor of "collier's Weekly, and it involved 10 weeks' flying over European airways, ail the way from tha Atlantic seaboard to tho center of Russia, Courtney's report, published In Collier's, shows the American supremacy from 1-J different angles, some of them rather unique find surprising: I. American commercial air lines flew 'IS million miles last year: nil Europe combined flew less than Uvo- thirds or that total. ''In 1933 tho difference will be much greater, American airwaya reporting in- dlffcrs with different nationalities, j "The.French people remain the least air-minded of Europeans; the- Russians aro tho most air-conscious.' There arc reasons for this beyond the control of ministers; the conservatism, cynicism and frug-allty of the French, the surging- youthfulncss of the no\v order in Russia." 8. Flying is more expensive In Europe than in America. ''Tho price 1 of 535 francs from London to Paris i ia as staggering to a Frenchman as thfl 5 pounds 5 shlUlnga is distressing to a ijiiddle-elass English merchant: To an American tourist, the f'J5 seems worth vrhiic.

Air mall is used on an enormous scale; in America; in Europe it is on a comparatively small sca.lo. "When I visited Lo Bowtjet," Courtney reports^, "a gala celebration was on: the record air mail load in history had been received that day--about SO pounds. It tho average night flyer in America \vero asked to sign for that load ho would craw! disdainfully back into bin warm bed. And that, mind you, was the day's business from all over liurope." 3. Night flying la in Us Infancy ous world conferences. In the United States, concurrently with tho acceptance of air transportation in business life, fares have fallen from sin averano of 12 cents ;v inllo in 1928 to less than seven cents this year. S* · Speeds on commercial routes | arc much faster in America t h r u in Europo. ''You may fly from Ber- llno to Moscow, ono of this European long haulK, In a. Httlo more than 13 | hours.-.

"Europe, on the contrary, is full of prohibited areas. You must follow designated corridors, or tho.chances aro you will bo shot down." "Commercml aviation in America is a husincsa, run on bvislneRn-lilte principles. In Kurope it is f u l l of international politics, suspicions and hostilities.
