WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 27, 1954 BLYTHEVTLLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE SEVEN. The Great Mario Man. of Lusty Appetites By BOB THOMAS (Last of Three Articles) HOLLYWOOD (AP) — What kind of a man is Mario Lanza? He is a person of lusty appetites, and not just for food. He works hard, plays hard and sings each song as though it might be his last. His conversation is as forceful as his singing, full of broad Italian gestures and punched across with earthy expressions. In his capacity for enjoyment of human pleasures, he is much like Enrico Caruso, who has been his Idol for most of his 33 years. Having been reared in poverty, Mario enjoys the luxuries that his brilliant voice has provided. He lives In a West Los Angeles mansion that rambles almost endlessly down terrace after terrace. There are seven TV sets, a pond with hundreds of goldfish, a swimming pool that would float a cabin cruiser, a formal garden and a. tennis court. He rents the place for a reported $2,500 a month from silent film star Norman Kerry. Royalties Pay Tab Royalties from phonograph records, which reach astronomical heights, allow the nonworking Lanza to live so lavishly. On the court is a regulation sparring ring, and it is Mario's pride and joy. When he showed me around, he hopped up on the canvas and peppered the punching bag with the skill of a pro. He spoke glowingly of his new friend, Rocky Marciano, who has promised to train in the Lanza ring when he returns here. When Mario goes to Palm Springs, he has the ring col- lapced and sent to Join him at the desert resort. Mario Is intensely loyal. He will recognize someone who gave him • helping hand a decade ago, even though he hadn't seen the person •Ince. H« has a robust sense of humor. His house backs onto the 13th green at the Los Angeles Country Club. When a golfer gets ready for a crucial putt, Mario sometimes •mlt< a booming "Fore" that could possibly be heard on Cata- Itna Island. It's said that the golf- trs are unnerved for days. Conscious of Greatness Mario is conscious of his great voles and speaks of it with almost R. reverence. I have heard him say many times: "It is a gift of God. I cannot take credit for it; It merely passes through me. That's why I must cherish it and give It to others He believes he con sing better than anyone alive, and there are those who will agree with him. One of these is his .vocal coach, Qia- como Spadont, who spent 22 years with the Chicago Opera Company ind has worked with all the great start, beginning with Caruso. A tall, stooping, white-haired man, he sits at the piano long hours whil« Mario sings. Mario said he would sing._for me, and stepped behind a podium next to the piano. "I'm joinj'to sing from 'Otello,'" he explained. "Most people would say I was foolish. Tenors seldom attempt 'Otello' until they are 40 years old, it Is that difficult. I am just 1 baby, but I will sing it. I Marilyn Tells Judge Trouble With Joe Tod ay SANTA MONICA, Calif. (If — •larllyn Monroe is scheduled to ppear in divorce court today to ell what wrecked her nine-month marriage to baseballs' Joe DlMag- ,o.

Miss Henie will bring her revue to Memphis' Ellis Auditorium for.a week's run Nov. 11-n. The revue will show nightly (except Sunday) at 8:30 with matinees scheduled for Sunday Nov. 14 at 1:30 and 5 p. m. will let you Judge." He explained the plot and then sang two arias, with maestro Spadoni offering a falsetto Desemona. It was a performance that would have cost many thousands on TV or in the concert hall, but Mario sang his heart out for an audience of one. He sang with great force and clarity, hitting a high C that seemed to make the windows rattle. As I sat and listened, I again became conscious of how great his gift is. It Is a voice that is heard in a lifetime, maybe in a cen- George Raft Sued For Auto Collision LOS ANGELES MB — Actor George Raft was sued for $10,OOC damages yesterday as a result of a three-automobile Ireeway collision. Miss Virginia Bouldware alleged the actor's car hit the rear of one in which she was riding last Jan. 9. She accused Raft of negligence and said the $10,000 represents medical care and lost earnings.

But Mario showed every sign of having overcome whatever mental troubles he has suffered in the past. I met him when he first came to Hollywood, and he is much the same as he was then — like a highspirited race horse eager to show the world what he could do. It could be that the Mario Lanza story Is really just beginning. WA R N I N C ORDER IN THE CHANCERY COURT, CHICKASAWBA DISTRICT, MISSISSIPPI COUNTY, ARKANSAS Frankie Lloyd Potter, Pltf.
