OTHMAN United Press Hollywood Correspondent. HOLLYWOOD, Jan. 10,--Jackio Coogan, who lost his fortune, his job, and his bride, became the original tough luck kid today when sale of the furnishings from his love cottage brought pcihaps a tenth of .their value. Tho 22-year-old Coogmi, who is suing his mother and step-father for an accounting of the S4,000,000 he said he earned ai "the Idd" of the silent movies and whose bride has left him because he couldn't support her, ordered all his magnificent furniture sold to the highest bidder. "A guy has got to cat, hnsn't he?" he asked. When the first session of the sale had ended and perhaps 300 curious people had filed from the garishly lighted Beverly Wllshire art galleries, Auctioneer Benjamin Seewack shook his head. He said Jackie might realize hundreds of dollars--when he should have received thousands. The bidders didn't seem niuch Interested In Jackie's two grand pianos,, oriental rugs, oil paintings, ornately carved furniture, Ivory miniatures and--as Seewnck put it--other articles too numerous to mention. Betty Grablc, Jackie's movie actress bride, was homo with mother. Jackie also was absent ns Seewack sought for bids on some of the most luxurious furnishings movie money ever bought. He called for an initial bid of $2,000 on tho collection of 28 mlnia- tuies by such artists as Cosway, Gainsborough and others--a group said to bo ono of the finest of its kind in tho West--and got an offer of $500. Seewack rejected that and tried to sell the pieces, one by one. He abkcd $100 for the first one and got a S10 offer, which went up dolla by dollar, to S15. Seewnck disgusted ly withdrew the rest of Jackie 1 miniatures. Then he put up the furnishing: A pair of rosewood commode brought $35. A Sheffield silver grav bowl and tray went for $3. A silve Jolly bowl brought S6. One of the pianos went for $151 the other--a $3,000 grand--brough $450. A painting valued by Sccwac nt $2,500 sold for $225. A pin chnise lounge which looked as Betty never evel had sal upon i went for $80. H cost Jnckic $20 A sofn of rust brocndc, with Intricate ly carved walnut frame, broURh $180. The two Cliinn ducks which ha decorated the Coogan-Ornble mantc piece told for $5 each. The gold encrusted service plates, which th Coognns had used nt their frequon dinner parties, sold for $2 each, gold fllngrccd mirror brought $1 And so it went. Seewack said th sale would last for three more day maybe longer unless the bidding be came more tplrlted. Miss Grnble. who earns $500 pc week .-it Paramount Studios, has bee supporting Jnckio almost constanll since their marriage little over n yea ago. She left him last week.
