Curtis, Leigh Voted Hollywood's Most Cooperative' by Press<Gals By ROB THOMAS HOLLYWOOD U)—This week the g»ls of the Hollywood press listed their pet loves and hales among the film stars In 1952. That cozy twosome, Janet Leigh »«d Tony Curtis, drew the bouquets u the most co-operative players. The Hollywood Women's Press Club rapped Rita Hayworlh nnrt Mario Lanza as the most uncooperative . ' These annual selections are : •ometlmes confusing to outsiders. The poll does not represent the entire press of Hollywood. Males 'are excluded from voting. The : press club Is composed of many women who have little or no contact with the stars. Many ol Ihe 'members are press agents, who could have an ax to grind. A good section of the club con- sists of fan magazine • writers. Thus, stars who won't submit to the scrutinizing fan mag routine are often chosen for the most uncooperative tag. Let's look nt the "unco-op" winners of the past: Female — Ginger Kogcrs, Jean Arthur, Joan Fontaine, Sonjn He- nfe. Grcer Garson, Ingrlrt Bergman, Jennifer Jones, Rita Hayworth, Hcdy Lntnarr. Olivia do Havillantl, Eslher Williams. Male — Fred Astalre. George Sanders, fcrrol Flynn (twice), Walter Pldgcon, Pred MacMurrny, Prank Sinatra (twice). Gary Cooper, Humphrey Bogarl. Robert Mitchum. > A pretty distinguished llsl, yet7 Most ot (hem arc still thriving In Ihclr chosen profession; so the blast from the.ladles seems not to tfSKKRi&ia^^ ' -' have ruined lliclr careers. All of those on the list are indi vlrtuallsU who have added to th magic of Hollywood. They arc th nonconformists who give film re porters something mcnty lo writ about, Instead of the drab gut about their hobbles and favorll foods. I have found nearly all them good copy, and most of the: friendly and cordial (exception Lamarr) Bui what about the slnrs wh have been paltycaked by the female press? Here they are: Femnle — Belle Davis, Rosalind Russell, Ann Sheridan, Betty Tint- ton, Joon Crawford (twice), Joan Fontaine (she reformed after being on the other list), Dorothy Lamourj... June Haver, LorelU Young, Aune Baxter. Male—Bob Hope (twice), Cary Qrant, Alan Ladd (twice), Gregory Peck (twice). Dana Anrlrews, Glenn Ford, Kirk Douglas. William Holdcn, John Derek. Hate it took a lot of money "Your water system serves you by securing water, by storing water,-by testing nnd purifying water to inake it safe for use and by delivering water into your home or place of business. These things il is able to do because substantial sums of money hav? been expended on equipment nnd installations wbich perform Fortunately, most of us benefit by expenditures made over a period of years, including periods when prices were much lower than (hey arc now.
