SATURDAY, APRIL 7, 1956 BLYTHEVltLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS Bing Crosby's Gal Is Cute, Young, Bright- In. Short, a Real Doll By BOB THOMAS HOLLYWOOD (AP) — Meet Kathy Grant, the light of Bing Crosby's life. It's easy to see why she is Ring's best girl. She is young and beautiful. She is intelligent, can discuss music, books and almost anything. She has a ready laugh and a soft, musical voice. In brief, she's a doll. Will Bing marry Katliy? Sorry— I've got no scoop on that score Bing himself is a great open-field runner through reporters' ques tlons about his marital future And Kathy maintains a discreel silence in matters concerning Croz But she's a willing talker on other matters, and I investigated her budding career. Rarity Kathy is one of those rarities —a beauty contest winner who made the grade in the movies. Born in Houston 24 years ago, she cherished the idea of becoming a movie star when she was a youngster. Her first beauty honors came as "Miss Buccaneer Navy" of Corpus Christ!, which netted her a trip to Mexico City. At 16 she was chosen the Texas rodeo queen of the Houston Fat Stock Show and Exhibition. That was the start of her road to Hollywood. "Roy Rogers was appearing the show," she recalls. "I met him and his manager Art Rush, and they urged me to come to Hollywood." .To Texas U. But they suggested that she finish school first. She went to the University of Texas, meanwhile becoming the golden girl of the Texas baseball league and queen of the Texas Lions. By 1952, she figured she had had. her fill of contests and was ready to storm Hollywood. Within a week after her arrival, she had met Art Rush, been taken to Paramount, tested for "Forever Female" with William Holden and signed by the studio, But she lost the role to Pat Ci'owley. The reason: "I had a Southern drawl you could cut with a knife." She took lessons to soften her Texan tones, meanwhile "working around the camera in six pictures, but never getting a line." During the period she changed her name. She had come to Hollywood with her own handle, Kathryn Grandstaff. Not Bitter "One day an assistant director said, 'Hey, you—I never can remember your name,'" she says. "That was when I decided I'i better get a new one." Paramount dropped her, but shi bears no bitterness—"I never dii anything for them; why shouk they do anything for me?" On good thing came out of her staj at the studio: she met Bing there Never a girl to remain idle Kathryn landed a contract Columbia, meanwhile writing newspaper column for 20 Texas papers and taking courses [JCLA. Last summer she returnee to the University of Texas anc the latest being "Reprisal" with Guy Madison. Talent boss Maxwel Arnow told her she's "on her way"—"and that's high praise for PAGE THREES IT'S HER OWN VIEWPOINT—Mrs. Irene Riebling de Giovanni has found a way to make riei and are painted over a chartreuse background, all of which goes well with the room's carved oak furniture. One of her reasons for painting the mural was that she had hunted in the area for several years. Now that it's slowly developing into a residential district, she thought it would be nice to bring those trees indoors and preserve them.** FOR BALL OR BEACH—Milady goes from ballroom to beach at the drop of a skirt with this ensemble being modeled at Miami Beach, Fla.
