HOLLYWOOD. October 12 (A.P.) It is not the same thing this is Dorothy Tree speaking working for a nebulous career when you do not have to work at all, and working when your work means bread and butter. Miss Tree, a brown-eyed brunette whose looks are striking rather than merely pretty, learned this for hcr self. Dorothy Tree, now a movie actress, left Cornell after two years in college because she was Impatient to be about a career and because "the 10,000 students made me feel," she says, "lost in a crowd." She wished to be a writer, but changed to the stage as her aim. That found little approval at home, where her father, then a wealthy New . York business man, frowned darkly on the idea. Earns Own Way. "So I said I'd earn my own way, and I did make enough, as dramatis counselor in a girls' camp, to take a course in stage producing," she relates. "I didnt know exactly how to go about breaking into the theater. It was Madam Albertl. the dramatic coach, who persuaded me to turn to acting and drop the study of producing. ' , "And then I decided for myself that the way to learn acting was to act. I finally got "walk-on" assisn-ments, such as maids, on the sta?s and I thought I was really working hard for my money. . Situation Changes. "But after father lost his money in the crash, I realized that it was different. "Subconsciously or otherwise. I had been leaning on the support it gave me to know that at home there was financial security. I think I really began to work after that realization that I had to work." This Is Miss Tree's second venture in Hollywood. Her first was ended for the same reason that caused her to quit Cornell that feeing of be ing lost in a crowd. Under Contract. She was under contract to a large studio , where there seemingly were too many girls for one more to get a chance. Here once more, she is no longer "lost in a crowd." She is the only girl under regular contract to Columbia, a smaller studio." Tomorrow and Every Friday Ladies Free GENTLEMEN, 15c Before 9:00 P. M.
