Infection Hospitalizes Esther Williams

Esther Williams is in the hospital for treatment of a minor infection and will stay there for the rest of the week, the actress' publicist said Tuesday.
The nature of the infection was not disclosed. The actress, in her mid-80s, is expected to recover fully, spokesman Harlan Boll said.
"She was just up in bed listening to her favorite music," Boll said. "She's doing fine."
Associated Press archives list Williams' birthday as Aug. 8, 1921. Boll said Tuesday that the actress was born Aug. 8, 1922.
Williams was a swimming champion who turned to acting where she was able to use her aquatic skills in such films as "Easy to Wed," "Neptune's Daughter" and "Dangerous When Wet."
She had been scheduled to appear Nov. 2 at a tribute to actress June Allyson but backed out at the request of family members. Elizabeth Taylor will take her place, Boll said.
