NEW YORK, Feb. 4.--George C. loodwin, assistant curator of mammals at the American Museum of Natural History, admits the ground- log story of weather prognostication has at least partial foundation in fact--or the : law of probability. 'It stands to reason," he said, "that if the day b clear at this season it is also likely to be cold and frostly; and if it Is cold and frosty the snow is likely to endure. 'On the other hand if the groundhog would not be able to sec his shadow the intervening clouds seem to suggest the fact that rain is shortly due and that the snows will be washed away, the ground will be bared and that an early spring is on the way." From there on you can write your own weather ticket, for Mr. Goodwin adds: "It is absolutely immaterial whether he sees his shadow or not." Actress Has Little Privacy, Court Rules In Suit tor Damages By United Press. CLEVELAND, Feb. 4.--Common Pleas Judge Frank J. Merrlck, defining a legal difference between stage folk and "tho meek, plodding stay-at-home citizen," said it's privacy. Because of that difference the judge ruled out the plea of Maxine Martin, New York actress, that the Roxy burlesque theatre of Cleveland invaded her privacy by displaying a full length picture of her in the lobby for advertising purposes. Miss Martin asked $10,000 damages for libel and "invasion of puv- acy," contending the semi-draped picture was used without her consent and that she never played burlesque. The libel claim will be heard later. "The glamor, genuine or artificial, of the thcatucal business removes participants from the realm ot the average citizen," Judge Meirick said. "Actors and actresses seek publicity and often ic".opt various ar.d sundry ways of securing such notoriety as will attract attention to them. They cannot expect to lead quiet, secluded lives." Judge Mcrrick dcclaicd the right of privacy is a new theory, unknown in common law and It does not exist where a person has become prominent or has dedicated his or her life to continued contact with the public.
