AMUSEMENTS AND ARTS HOPES TO HELP CAREERS Garland Won't Keep Her Children From Stage EDITOR'S NOTE - Judy Gar-, land is one of the most frequently witlen-about stars in show busi-i ness. What she herself feels about life in the spotlight is told in the following first-person story, written exclusively for The Associated Press. By JUDY GARLAND Written for The Associated Press I love my career. I want to say this because I'm always being pamtcd a more tragic figure than 1 am. and I get awfully bored with myself as a tragic figure. T wouldn't have been anything but an entertainer. With all the «!•••» iblcs. with the stumbling and falling on thr way. the rewards arc still so great. If you happen to bp a success, you meet writers, politicians, people in the arts. People with stimulating ideas in many places. It's a marvelous opportunity to lead a broad existence. As a performer. I love the en- thusiasm audiences have shown me. You can't, blame me—we all want to prove ourselves, and I've had appreciation shown to me in the most inspiring, spontaneous ways. Now I took at my three fine children and I wonder whether I would want them to be entertainers, too. Applause alone doesn't sustain you at 3 a.m., when you can't sleep. But even if my children understood this, could I stop them in : their choice of career? I don't think there's much I could do—or I would do. I'd be a damned fool ' to discourage them if they wanted badly to be actors. Thoy'vp been around, theater i people all thoir lives, it's inevitable that they'd think of the stage and screen for themselves. If i they're born talented, if they have j the desire to sing and dance and I entertain, it would be most terrible to have that smothered by a ,_.. JAMES MAUREEN k ~~ STEWATT 0 O'HafJA .. .FaBiAN VACATION parent. I would never be a mother who wants to be the star of the family, with no competition from her children. How then could I help them prepare for show business, if they chose to enter it?—as Liza, the eldest, has already. 1 used to think the best thing is to try to keep their lives, up to a certain age. as normal as possible. But how the heck can it be completely normal when they travel all over with me? Yet I believe they have been helped by the security of being with their mother. That i* better than the best boarding school or a home full of servants —and no mother. Finally, it comes down to a .matter of talent. Liza has been j studying ballet since she was a i child and loves it. Last year she i spent the summer season at Hy- ! annis, Mass., as an apprentice in summer slock—painting scenery, | moving props, sweeping the stage, (working hard. She. seems to like | the theater more than movies. | Lorna, who's 9, is the singer of j the family, she has a tefrific voice. Joey—he's only 7 and you can't tell with boys. He might turn out to be an engineer. Right now he's only just finished the first grade of school and he's just a nice fellow. But if they approach acting, I would want them to be aware of the responsibilities of a career and the little hurtful things that can happen. They have to be taught what true professionalism is—good manners at work thinking of other people, your coworkers in a production. There are people who have been acting for years and have never achieved this. I may be many things people disapprove of but I have always tried to be a true professional. i So if they are talented, you I teach them and encourage them ; and give them confidence. If they I and not talented, get them into j another line quick. It's difficult enough when one has talent. When hasn't, it's too heartbreaking.
