Ann Marsters Admits Old Fascination For Undergraduates but Thrill Is Gone

Demure Feature Writer Returns From Hollywood Slurring Actors, Athletes


"I used to go around with Harvard men exclusively and thought they were wonderful then," Ann Marsters stated Saturday evening in an interview. When questioned concerning her present opinion of Crimson undergraduates, she exclaimed, "Oh, I'm still young and silly myself, so I don't mind them."

Without previous experience in journalism, Ann Marsters obtained her job three years ago and became an important personage of the Boston American over night. Her first assignment was to interview Barbara Stanwyck. Since then she has met and written about countless people of note.

Talking quietly and instinctively concealing her little-known but frequently mentioned profile, Miss Marsters demurely told how she had formed her first impression of Harvard men as being unmistakably bored at the dances given by the Cambridge Haskell School, which she attended. Although the Crimson undergraduates take themselves far too seriously, she admitted that on the whole they're no worse than other college boys.

Miss Marster's age must remain a secret. For although she readily admitted it early in the interview, she later asked that it not be printed since it was against the wishes of the Managing Editor, whose office is adjoining Ann's, that the public know that she is 23 years old.

Equally critical of movie stars, Miss Marsters termed them as "talkative . . . not handsome and without glamour." No real man would be a movie actor," she expanded. Of the numerous famous characters of the sports world she has interviewed, Max Baer is tops. But even the popular play-boy prize-fighter comes in for his share of Marsters' abuse as being "dizzy" and "punch-drunk."

Replying to the query how she obtained information for her Primer for Freshmen printed last fall, she said modestly, "Oh, I know quite a few boys."

Although her Primer included considerable material on the inner workings of the University, she expressed complete ignorance of the Parietal ruling and its recent change. She could only say, rules never strengthen morals . . . I've found that one can always get around any rules."
