Barrymore daughter visits city with acting company

Daughter of the first lady of the stage and niece of Lionel and John Barrymore, the 23-year-old actress came to Lubbock in a popular priced automobile, shared a room, not a suite, with an actress in her company, and with a friendly smile spoke of "earning a living."
