COURIER NEWS PAGE TH5EI Grieved Mother Finds Relief In Overseas Jaunts .By BOB THOMAS HOLLYWOOD (AP) — Mrs, Agnes Gotez spent last Christmas in Frankfurt, Germany. She'll probably be in Casablanca this year. She covers a lot of ground for a woman who spent most of her adult years as a housewife. A CHRISTMAS CAROL BY CHARLES DICKENS Three years ago, she \vas a contented home maker in Dnyton, Ohio. Then tragedy struck. Her mother died. Two weeks later ,her newly married daughter. 19, was struck by bulbar polio. Within five days she was dead. It was a rugged blow to lose her mother and her only child within such a brief period. Her life seemed to lose its purpose. Her husband is Col. Joseph Goetz. Air Force officer in charge of supplying entertainment for all the services. He brought her to Hollywood, where he was arranging a star junket to entertain troops in Alaska and to premiere Port of Nation Gets Relief From Cold By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Tlie eastern half of the nation, with the exception of the Northeast, today got a little relief froni the cold weather of the past several days.

"Bill Goetz ino relation), who was head of the studio then, dropped by and suggested thai I go along on the trip as sort of wardrobe mistress for the girls. "At first I didn't think much of the idea. But then I thought it might be good for me. I realized that I had been shunning the company of young people ever since my daughter died. I guess it was a subconscious thing, so I wouldn't remember and be hurt again." She decided ,to go alone. The girls — Ann Blyth, Lori Nelson. Joyce Holden and others — were all her daughter's age, and she enjiyed being with them. She was too- busy taking care of their clothes to revive any memories. Last Christmas, Mrs. Goetz hit the global road again. She went along as manager on one of the many entertainment tours Hollywood sends to American service men everywhere at Christmastime. Her unit was headed by Maxie Rosenbliom a n d went throughout Germany, France, Iceland and the Azores. This Christmas she again manages the Rosenbloom tour and the group is going- to North Afrfca. Cuba. Bermuda and Puerto Rico. Her future trips may take her to more distant places. One of the plans is to accompany a long-hair group of classical artists to India, Pakistan and other places.
