BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.)' COURIER JTEWI PAG1 THREB Holf Sprite, Half Woman Unusual Early Life Is Big Cause Of Mysterious Quality in Audrey (Fourth of Five) By DICK KLEINER NEA Staff Correspondent NEW YORK — (NEA) — Audrey Hepburn's mysterious quality of being simultaneously down-to-earth and out-of- this-world may spring from her curious background. It would be difficult for anyone coining from such a background to be run of the mill. To begin witn, tax.e her parents. Her father was a wealthy Anglo- Irish businessman, J. A. Hepburn- Ruston, with Fascistic tendencies— •he was a member of the notorious British. Blackshirts, led by Sir Os- wajd Mosley. Her mother was the daughter of an important Dutch family—her grandfather. Baron Aernoud van Heemstra. had been governor of the Dutch colony of Surinam, and the family home had been the famous Castle of Doom, where the German Kaiser spent his last days. To complicate this mixture, the marriage was unhappy, and her parents were divorced when she was 10. Even earlier, she had been leading a split life — winters at school in England, summers at her father's estate in Belgium, where she was born. Then ther ewas another complication, the war. It began when she was ip. She had been in England, in comparative safety, but, curiously, her mother took her to the family home in Holland. So. for six years, she lived under the Nazis, and her once-secure life tumbled and she learned the meaning of fear and hunger and other things that had been only words in books. Out of all this came a girl who combines the old-worldliness of her mother's people with the gayety of her father's Irish forebears; a girl who knows how to portray the joys of love and the sorrows of separation; a girl whose eyes mir- row both the happiness and tragedy she has lived through. It is not surprising that such a girl would be an unpredictable medley, and that she is. She can be all things to all people—and, it must be admitted, to a few she is nothing. The turning point in her life j Fayetteville to Get L/m| New Post Office And Court House WASHINGTON (&)— A new poet office and courthouse building appears in the offing for Fayetieville. Ark. The General Services Administration (GSA) has proposed that) the building be constructed under j the new lease-purchase law. j Under this law, originally drafted several years ago by Rep. Trimble (D-Ark), the GSA will contract with private agencies to build office buildings which federal agencies will occupy on a lease basis. After a period of years—during i which rent will be applied as pay- I ment—the government will own the building. Trimble said the Fayetteville building is the only one on the GSA list for Arkansas.
