The stormy homelife of the girl | who makes music and the man who makes movies broke up three weeks ago, but they didn’t get around to telling anyone about lt until yes terday. Judy’s agent announced they had separated, but whether a divorce was in the offing he declined to say. The 27-year-old songstress wasn’t talking either. She’s been playing hard to get since last June when she gashed her throat with a drink ing glass in a futile attempt to kill herself. She tried suicide, she said ■later, because she felt her movie career was slipping away from her. But last night Minnelli confirmed the news in two brief sentences: “Yes, we have separated. I have nothing more to say.” It didn’t exactly surprise anyone in Hollywood. Judy has been mak ing the rounds of nightspots for several weeks with ex-producer Sid - • , . , ,„.,..., '§f *A«'t -n*' .W pB mm ■«• S|K" ' "A&* ■.:** JMT £ JmMHBHpHp &JP Pictured Here Are The Modem Facilities Os Champion Milling Co.

C. Lust, estranged husband of actress Lynn Bari, who is seeking a divorce. They have gone together almost nightly. But until now Judy has consistently denied rumors that she and Minnelli were “living together I but leading separate lives.” ‘ [ LIVES WITH DAUGHTER Friends said Judy moved out of l the sprawling pink-stucco mansion j on Sunset Boulevard three weeks! ago. Her four-year-old daughter, Liza, and she are living in a smaller home above the sunset strip. “This never would have happen ed,” one of Judy's pals said, ‘‘lf sh' | hadn’t had one of her old spells; again. She’s been despondent and depressed and we’re very worried about her.” “It’s time the world knew she is a very, very sick girl. She isn’t re sponsible for all the things she does.” This isn’t the first time Miss Gar land walked out on Minnelli. She left him twice before. Later, they said it had all been a mistake. Judy said she was sure She could save the marriage, “Now that I’m well again.” But when her temperament cost her her third movie role and her Mrs. A. White Fetes Liitington Club I The members of the Ace of i I Clubs were guests of Mrs. A. J. j ! W;.ite for the Christmas club par- I ty at her home Wednesday even ing. Holiday decorations of greenery, candles and a beautifully trim med Christmas tree gave the home a festive air for the party. A dessert course, with coffee and salted nuts was served be fore play, and throughout the ev ening cokes, candies, and nuts were served. When scores were added, Mrs. Joel Layton Jr. was awarded club high score prize, and Mrs. Mar nervous disorders returned, their difficulties reappeared Minnelli was sympathetic when Judy tried sui cide, but their rift was well known. Finally the pug-nosed star decid ed to announce to the public her second marriage was on the rocks for good. Her first husband was movie con ductor and composer David Rose, whom she married nine years ago. She was 18 then but already had been a star for years, first as a wide eyed screen moppet and then as a lovely young musical actress. That marriage ended in divorce in 1944. She said then that Rose was sullen, didn’t like her friends and was inconsiderate. A year later, Judy married Minnelli at the home of her mother here. - NOTICE - Sales and Service Representative is Now Located In Your Territory.
