Frances Fanner, once glamorous screen actress, was sen- tenced to 180 days in jail today for violation of drunk-driving pro- bation, and in a wild melee as she was taken from court knocked down one officer but was finally subdued by others. "Have you ever had a broken she screamed at a matron as she was-carried to a cell. It was the only hint to the rea- son behind a wild twenty-four hours, marked by a fight in a hotel, which preceded her arrest in a'fashionable Hollywood hotel. Booked at the county jail to start serving her term, Miss Farm- er answered the desk sergeant's request for her occupation-with: "I'm, an actress, hadn't you Then, to reporters, she queried: "The judge sentenced me to 180 days.

Before she was subdued, one husky officer had been floored, the matron and another officer bruised, and the actress herself seized and held while her shoes were removed, to forestall further damage. The "sentence climaxed a career which began in Hollywood six years ago, after the Seattle girl, a university graduate, had made a trip to Russia as reward for win- ning a home-town newspaper's popularity contest. It was no movie glamor girl who faced the bench, however. Her light blue suit was mussed, her blonde hair straggling, her eyes were red. She had spent the night in jail after her arrest in a fashionable Hollywood hotel.
