      AT 74, SHE'S PROUD SHE'S NEVER BEEN KISSED
      AP Newsfeatures
      HOLLYWOOD-Although she's 74 and has lived most of her life in Hollywood,
      Miss Mary M. Sackett never has been kissed.

      That's not only the claim, but the proud boast of the tiny, vivacious woman
      who is Hollywood's first postmistress. "I'm and old maid and proud of it,"
      Miss Sackett insists. "I've never worn a bit of makeup yet I've had three
      proposals. Men have taken me out, but usually with a chaperon. I wouldn't
      let them kiss me goodnight and to this day no man ever has been allowed to
      put his arm around me."

      Miss Sackett settled in Hollywood with her family in 1888. She was appointed
      postmistress last year. Born on a Kentucky tobacco farm, she never has
      smoked. "Never touched liquor either-or tea or coffee."

      Could some man sweep her off her feet?

      "Not a chance. I'm too set in my ways. I don't want any man cluttering up my
      house."
      [Although she states she was born in Kentucky, the census shows Connecticut.]
