Marie Dressler Is
Dead At Age Of 62
SANTA BARBARA, Cal., July 28.
- (P)>- Marie Dressler, veteran ac-
tress of the stage and screen, died
today. She was 62 years old.
Miss Dressler succumbed to a long
affliction with cancer, heart trouble,
and uremia.
Death came at 3:25 p.m. for the
self-styled "ugly duckling' who be-
ame a swan of laughter during a
career replete with both hardships
and glory. Under care of two phy-
sicians and several nurses, she died
at the C. K. G. Billings estate to
which she went from Hollywood three
months ago because of a physical
Hope for recovery was abandoned
three weeks ago, despite a store of
vitality that surprised her physicians.
Miss Dressler learned two years
ago she had an incurable ailment, but
took a course of treatments that en-
abled her tfo make two more pictures
at Metro-Godwyn-Mayer studio, Cul-
ver City, by working only a few hours
daily. Finally, she was forced to seek
a long rest.
Soon after Miss Dressler's life was
despaired of, her condition became so
critical that her physician, Dr. Nu-
zum, expressed his belief that she
would not live through the night.
She rallied, however, and though her
death was expected for momentarily
for days thereafter, it finally became
apparent she might live several weeks.

In 36-Hole Final Match
Of Annual Tournament
Woody Malloy won his third city
golf title yesterday on the University
Course, defeating Carol Lovelace, 8
and 7' in the 36-hole final match of
the eighth annual tournament.
Malloy was in no difficulty during
the entire match, taking the lead on,
the second hole with a five to Love-
lace's six after they had halved the
first with par fives.
The Michigan Varsity star was
slightly shaky on the first nine, card-;

of the morning round to take a sub-
par 35 to Lovelace's 37, to finish the
morning round four up.
The match was ended on the 11th{

Malloy sank a 30-foot putt for a birdie

Malloy lost four holes in the entire'

Malloy had the advantage off the?
tee throughout the match, but gained

(Copyright, 1934, by the Associated Press)
VIENNA, July 28. - (R) - Sporadic
fighting continued in several outlying
provinces of Austria today, notably
Carinthia and Styria, but the day
upon which Engelbert Dollfuss was
buried was also the day the Austrian
government could, consider itself in
control of the situation.
It was intimated that 700 had been
killed in the four days of bitter fight-
ing to wrest Austria from the Nazis.
As the slain Chancellor was buried
after an impressive funeral service,
rifles and machine guns -and in
some cases artillery -in the hands
of loyal troops were steadily sup-
pressing the last of the Nazi rebels.
A state of general nervousness. ex-

among the populace, however, mak-

This shooting appeared as the re-

troopers. They started firing after a
guard had shot a boy on a bicycle who
failed to halt upon command.

Developments in the Austrian sit-
Prince von Starhemberg's govern-
ment, appeared to be slowly gaining
control of the Nazi rebellion although
bitter fighting continued between
Nazis and loyal troopers.
Austria buried its slain chancellor
Dolifuss amid ceremonies of state in
a' temporary grave near historic
Schoenbrunn Park, while grief-
stricken thousands looked on. There
were no new disorders.
Italy, with fresh troops in striking
distance of the border, and 48,000
fighting men poised to enter Austria if
necessary, was watchfully waiting the
outcome of events. No troops were
known to have crossed the border.
War Scare Fades
The war scare visibly faded in Lon-
don as government officials left
Whitehall for the week-end express-
ing confidence in the government of
Prince von Starhemberg.
The Hapsburg monarchist element
was reported active in Vienna. They
wished to place Archduke Otto on the
throne. The notion met with insistent
objections from all neighboring quar-
ters. Italy's attitude is flatly against
restoration. To France Hapsburg rule
recalled centuries of past opposition to
French influence in Europe.
Police, raiding the home of Herr
Maier, director of the State School of
Applied Arts in Carinthia, declared
that they had found an incriminating
letter from the Nazi Prince Bernhard
von Sachsen-Meiningen, who was
once jailed by the late Chancellor
Dollfuss, but later escaped.
The police also said that they had
discovered in the school a secret ra-
