Marriage Her One Big Mistake By Carlisle Jones (Special Sunday Feature) Looking backward from the security and maturity of her eighteen years Loretta Young finds she would not swap places for anything with the sweet girl graduates of her age, just now going out into the world of experience where she has been for four years. “I don’t envy anybody,” she says. “I’m having too good a time.” Not even the memory of an “impetuous marriage,” now labeled a mistake, ean rob Loretta of the opinion that being a motion picture celebrity is great fun; more fun in fact than being the valedictorian of a high school elass. If there be those who sigh over Loretta’s loss of all the little thrills of young girlhood, they should keep their regrets to themselves; Loretta does not need their sympathy—at least not yet. Loretta Young is known about Hollywood as the girl who grew up overnight. A long-legged, somewhat awkward, gangling girl became an amazingly attractive young woman, looking much older than she really was, almost between weekends. The stories of her “discovery” are essentially true, but it was no surprise discovery. Loretta, then known as Gretchen, was brought up with the idea of spending her life and her talents on stage or sereen. She had been groomed for the part from the age of five. The name Loretta is the byproduct of a publicity department’s search for a name for some other later. now.” “And no regrets for a ‘lost girlhood’ ?” “No. Perhaps I don‘t know what I missed. But anyway I haven’t missed it.” It is probable that three years ago Loretta was not the young sophisticate that she seemed. “T was scared blue for six months,” she confesses, “before I began to get any real fun out of being in pictures. But now, she closed her Avan 7 in thea hast” dramatic pookal ‘it’s glorious.” “Why, I can have love made to me by a different man in every picture, and it doesn’t mean a thing—but it is exciting. Any girl would like that. “And I never get over the thrill of seeing my name in lights. Don’t you think that’s more thrilling than —than graduating or anything like that?” EV es = 1ts182" “Oh let me see. There are a hundred reasons why I am glad I am who I am and that I am having all the fun I am having. I’ve met and worked with so many fascinating people: Lon Chaney, John Barrymore, Richard Barthelmess, Otis Skinner and now Walter Huston in “There’s so mueh fun right ten. It was slapped onto the next newcomer in place of her own and every member of her own family calls her “Loretta” now. By the simple expedient of moving back to her mother’s comfortable but not ostentatious home in Los Angeles, Loretta announced to the world, some months ago, that her marriage to Grant Withers was an experiment which had failed. It was from this home that she eloped twice with Grant once for an airplane trip which ended in marriage in Yuma, Arizona; once, two days later, also with Grant te their Hollywood apartment therel y putting a quietus on her mothers insistence that the marriage be /‘ anulled. Sobered a little but not altogether chastened by this experience, Loretta has resumed her old standing in the household, a household tremendously popular with Hollywood’s young set, due to the presence there of two attractive unmarried sisters, Sally Blane and Polly Ann Young. Now Loretta too, has joined their gayety and is seen occasionally Screen’s best liked love team with various escorts at her old haunts, the Cocoanut Grove, the Roosevelt Blossom Room. It is all very much as it was before that marriage, except that she is facing the publicity which inevitably follows the first move she has made for divorce. Even so, troubles rest lightly on a busy young woman of eighteen. She has an appetite for thrills and she is being well fed. She confessed as much to the interviewer in the living room of her mother’s house, a living room attractive in its simplicity and in the many evidences that it is thoroughly enjoyed. “T’m having more fun than almost anybody else I know,” Loretta deelared. “TI don’t think I envy anyone, even the girls of my own age who. are graduating from high schools and planning for.college. IT get a thrill a minute doing what I am doing—I think anything else would seem very dull now.” In the past three years Loretta has earned more money than many people receive in a lifetime. She has saved some of it. She is, after a fashion, a thrifty young lady, with her family’s advice to guide her, and she says that one of the several reasons for her broken marriage was Grant Withers’ inability to learn the value of money. She said as much before on a few occasions and repeated it now. “Somehow I find no time to worry | Your Nerve,” about -the future, she continued | the a First , FAIRBANKS [TA YOUNG those | blues.

I have money enough of my own to buy what I want and to make sure of future needs. Why should I envy anybody?” asks Loretta.
