Dec. 4.—For a young woman with a reputation for evasiveness, Paulette Goddard has been doing a lot of straight talking lately.. "Reporters who have been ques-_ tioning her for years' finally got so muddled by her amiable but variable replies they didn't know whether they were writing about Cinderella, Mrs. Charles Chaplin, or the Queen of the Pixies. It seemed nothing could divert Miss Goddarcl's attention from fiction to biography—until along came rhere are people in Hollywood who declare she ,was out here try- no to crash the studios in 1927 and course and coffee were served.

And publicly, she has sent into .superior court here a few bitter details of her early life as arguments against a suit brought by her estranged father for an allowance of $150 a week. These particulars are scanty and still leave many hazy chapters in the story of Marion Levee's 20 years. However, her answer to the demand by Joseph R. Levee reveals she had to go to work at 14 as a model to support.her mother, and that she became a Ziegfeld showgirl at \5. The document also specifically Identifies her as the wife of Chaplin, although the time and place of the ceremony remain as mysterious as ever. MARRIED BY CATALINA MAYOR?

The actress left Mrs - w - c - . c ? rlin is in Memphis had just told her life story, and ihe friend suggested maybe she shouldn't have said so much. "Oh. that's all right." Miss Goddard reassured him. "Not a word of it's true."

And anyway, it wasn't Miss Goddard who started all thi.s. For a long while she held a strained silence and began to talk only when David Selznick's publicists insisted she make some statement about her—if any—marriage. That was when she was appearing in "The Young in Heart." \) So she declared she and Chaplin had been married by the mayor of Catalina Island. There never has been a mayor, or even a justice of the peace, at Catalina. Subsequently the actress has confided that the ceremony took place at Shanghai. Canton and Singapore. Three Long Island towns have been named as her birthplace. Joseph Levee seems to have been the second husband of Alta (or Alice) Goddard. Marion (who became Paulette) was bom June 3, 1911. according to movie directories. Some interviewers have written she grew to adolescence on the luxurious estate of an uncle; others have heard her parents separated early and the girl and her mother spent all their time traveling. Paulette being educated at numerous private schools and convents. Heu statement at court says she had to quit high school at 14 to do modeling, and that she has supported Mrs. Levee since. Most of her biographers have understood that at H she met Florenz ZiegHelri at her uncle's home, that the famed showman offered her a chance in "Rio Rita," and that her mother agreed after much persuasion and on the condition that she would continue her studies with a tutor. Actually, although she may have started with Ziegfeld at 15, she was 17 when he staged "Rio Rita.' Elect Officers Mrs. W. M.
