O " I s f '
dies at 86
HOLLYWOOD (AP) Mary Pickfcrd,
who reigned as America's Sweetheart during
the colorful, formative period of American
movies, is dead at 86 after 13 years of
seclusion in her legendary home,. Pickfair.
Her death Tuesday was attributed to a
stroke suffered last Friday.
-The journey to the hospital was one of the
few times Miss Pickford, whose golden curls
" and spunky innocence won her the adulation
of millions, had emerged from the mansion
since she withdrew from public life in 1966.
In 1976, she appeared before cameras at
Pickfair to accept an honorary award in
recognition of her unique contribution to the
film industry and the develipment of film as
an artistic medium from the Academy of
Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, which she
Miss Pickford was perhaps the first great
international screen idol. In an era of such
stars as Greta Garbo and Gloria Swanson,
she was the first to have her name in marquee
lights and command earnings of thousands
of dollars a week. She was box-office gold
for such movies as Pollyanna and Poor Little
The romance of the Pickford name grew
when she married the screen's most dashing
hero, Douglas Fairbanks Sr., in 1920. Even
five years later, 300,000 people went to a
Moscow train station to see them.
The couple overcame the scandal that had
resulted when they divorced their respective
spouses to marry and live at Fairbanks
home above Beverly Hills. At the opulent
estate dubbed Pickfair, dinner was served
from solid gold plates and guests might
include Charles Lindbergh and the Duke
and Duchess-of Alba.

Grauman's Chinese Theater.
She was born Gladys Marie Smith in
Toronto, Canada, April 2, 1893, and made
her stage debut at 5. Her first film was a one

believe students are at a competitive advantage in
the-job market if they know several effective
strategies when they start to look for a job,
according to Jerry Bordeaux of UPS.
The old method of mailing out resumes with
cover letters is not the most effective way to find a
job, and applying for job openings may lead to
competition with dozens of other job seekers,"

hunting will be discussed in the workshop, she
Other workshops in this series deal with resume
