'DON'T MARRY UNTIL YOU JUST CANT HELP1
IT," SAYS FAMED ACTRESS
Seattle, Wash., April 8. Eight
years ago Kathryn Kidder left the J
stage at the height of her fame to
marry Dr. Louis Kaufman Anspacher.
She married him for two reasons
first, because she couldn't help it, and
second, because he was not an actor.
"Usually marrying an actor means
separation," says Miss Kidder. "And
since marrying I have invented a ,
proverb. It is this: 'Never marry
until vou just can't help it.'
"I left the stage -joyfully, looking
forward to a peacVul IFe'of farming,
which I adore. For eight delightful
years I studied seed crtJTo'5nes grew
flowers and vegetablps collected
stray animals and watched them fat

ful life. My husband wrote and lec
tured and experimented on plays, and
before we realized it the New York
theaters were producing his plays and
we were both absorbed and fascin

Dr. Anspacher stood by smiling. "I
do not want people to think I am on
the stage because I think I will ever
be a great actor," he said, "but vau
deville gives me the entire morning to
write and that is more liberty than I
have enjoyed in years. And of course,
where Kathryn is, there is home."
