BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Sara Sees Error; Now Learns Acting By BOB THOMAS HOLLYWOOD (API — If she had it to do over, Sara Shane would learn how to act first, then become a publicity "star." Sara, who is much more glamorous than her adopted film name would indicate, became a Hollywood figure overnight. Maybe I should say half « figure. Anyway, one morning a movie trade paper featured a pinup pose of her from the waist. An ad in the other trade paper showed her assets from the Sara Shane Only Half a Figure waist down. Put them both together and you got a lovely gal. It caused something of a sensation, which may be testimony on the low state of creative press agemry in Hollywood. The stunt was hailed as the greatest severance play since Orson Welles sawed Hita Hayworth in half during his magic show. Sara had offers from several studios and signed with U-I because it offers the best training for young hopefuls . Sara's .career fizzled out after a year at U-I and she was dropped. "Now I realize my mistake," she says. "I did the whole 'thing backwards. I should have gotten a firm foundation as an actress, and then gone after the publicity buildup. The stunt developed my name to the point where I should have been doing star roles. * But I wasn't ready for them." She has taken steps to remedy that situation. She has been having dramatic lessons five hours a day. six days a week for several months. Now she is up for good roles, and she feels she is ready for them. If she does make the grade, it will be a tribute to her own native determination. She says she has yearned to act since she saw her first movie. A honey tilonde with a cover-girl face and warm blue eyes, she started modeling as a schoolgirl in her home town of St. Louis, cutting classes if necessary. She went to New York and became a Powers girl. But the heat of summer was too much for her. and she decided to try her luck in California.

As any married woman knows, STARR GAZING Whether you detect something missing on this page or not, there is. After writing my 200th story last week, I decided my readers needed a rest and vise versa. I've gotten a lot of pleasure, doing these bits and have made some mighty good friends through this medium. You know the old Indian proverb, "You never know a man until you've walked a mile in his moccasin." I learned an awful lot about human nature through the interviews I made. I'll pass along to you the main thing I learned, and that is, we are all pretty much alike in this old world. We have our ups and downs, our joys and sorrows, just like the little fellow down the street or the tycoon on Wall Street and if it were not for rose-colored glasses life wouldn't be worth living for any of us. I approached a lot of people during this time, that for no certain reason, I had shied away from and when I did muster up the nerve to ask that I be allowed to write them up I found they were not at all like I had pictured them, but were as human as you and I. I believe yi(u will agree with that after having read my stories. Probably you felt the same way toward a person for no certain reason, but changed your mind when you found out they saved old news, paper clippings, just as you do or perhaps the poem that touched them, touched you, their hobbies were along the same line as yours, they like the same food as you do, they had bad breaks in life, probably worse than those you are nursing, but which reminded you of yours. It takes all of these things to qualify in sulnming up human nature and bringing us closer to our fellow man and that was the point I tried to bring out in each story I wrote.
