Marilyn Monroe Died a Year Ago By BOB THOMAS AP Movie-Television Writer HOLLYWOOD (A?')'— A year agtf" today the news flashed around the world: Marilyn Monroe is dead. Sh e ' had died in a Brentwood bungalow, her lifelong insecurity apparently having driven her to a fatal dose of sedatives. She was 36 and the world's most famous blonde. No. event in recent Hollywood history caused a greater outpouring of words on th e news wires. Now, a year later, she remains in .the public consciousness. Poets wrote odes to tier. Artists have found her tragic figure a subject for paintings. Eassayists have cited her as a symbol of today's bitter search for success. A,.full-length feature composed of scenes irom most of her movies in theaters across the nation. A biographical documentary has played and re-played on television:'Re-releases of her films have had success, especially in Paris. Today's anniversary will find her, crypt at Westwood Memorial Park decorated with floral sprays. Another times there'has been no unusual observance of her passing—except for the six red roses which Joe Dimaggio ordered in perpetiuity. With a year intervening, it might be more possible now to assess the legend that Marilyn left behind. It seems inevitable that she would be a star. Never before had so many rich and diverse elements combined to produce excitement and appeal. Ther e was the saga of her orphan upbringing. The rise from chorus girl to stqr. The aura of romance and the three marriages —tli e ccp, the baseball immortal, the playwright. She had the knack Of attracting headlines without seeming to. I don't believe she ever went aft- •ur publicity; things just seemed 1 to happen to her, and generally tor th e best. The nude calendar, which might have been a disaster for another starlet, was a boon £';r her. Her physical attributes needed no elaboration. A s for her acting skill it was more than sufficient for what she was required to do; she even developed into an accomplished commedienne. She could be delightful company in her moments of elation. Her public face was always with tlie warm moist smile and the dancing eyes. But tiiei-e v ere other time s that cr.'.'.y a few close friends ever saw, when she 'was stricken with doubt and despair. She must have hit oue of those times a year ago. Wirtz Calls in Rail Officials WASHINGON (AP) — Secretary of Labor W. Wilterd Wlrtz called in railroad management and union representatives today in an effort to spark a new round of negotiations on the strike- threatened work rules dispute. With a nationwide rail tieup in prospect Aug. 29 unless Congress acts or a settlement of the four- year-old jobs dilemma is reached, the Labor Department is keeping the heat on the two sides, trying to propel them toward hard bargaining. Wirtz offered suggestions "relative to the key issues" Friday night—there has been no public disclosure of their nature—and he and Asst. Secretary James J. Reynolds conferred last weekend with management and union rep resentatlves. Asked Sunday night if any move toward agreement had developed, Reynolds said "not yet, no," but he added, "A very serious attitude has entered into these sessions." Reynolds said Wirtz' recom mendatiohs should serve as "a framework for useful, hard bar- 'gaining." Tribes in the'interior of Morocco still regard the camera a s an instrument of the devil to seize and imprison men's souls.
