WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 8, 1952 ^JHE REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON, ILLINOIS 9 Crook County, Oregon, Is Sick of Political Polls By Aftsociattd Press BALTIMORE — A far-ranging correspondent of Uir Baltimore Sun reports the badgered voters of Crook County in Oregon are sick and tired of having their pulse taken by election pollsters. Polls, they have decided arc a nuisance. So now they won't talk. Crook County has been besieged by pollsters because in every election since 1880 it has voted in favor of the candidate who turned out to be the majority choice of voters throughout the nation. The reaction of Crook Cuunti- ans was reported by Thomas O'Neill said in a dispatch from Salem. Ore., "the people of Crook County population 8.991, registered voters 3,233, have found themselves under the microscope. "A knock at the door or a ring of the telephone became almost in variably the prelude to a single query: 'What presidential candidate will you support?" "A poll-a-day became a problem and irritated Crook Countians began refusing to state a preference, slamming the door on possibly pricesless advance information as to what the nation will do Nov. 4." Crook County gave a majority to President Truman last election while Oregon was going the other way. Heniled For GOP Column O'Neill reported there are other signs Oregon is once more headed for the Republican column. He quoted Mrs. Dolly Fessler, the Democratic chairman in Crook County, as saying she twice appealed to the party leadership for campaign material to use in the county but got no response. Hollywood Bogie Scors Another Oscar' Jinx of Many a Film Career HOLLYWOOD (NEA)—Exclusively Yours: An Academy Award has. jinxed more than one career but Humphrey Bogart has no regrets about the shiny, year-old Oscar standing on a special shelf in his home. "The way to survive un Oscar," Bogie growled, "is never to try and win another one. You've seen what happens to some Oscar winners. They spend the rest of their lives turning down scripts while searching for THE great role to win another one. I hope I'm never even nominated again. It's meat and potato roles for me from now on." A trip to Texas, where he cavorted around with Glenn McCarthy, didn't leave Bogie draped on the ropes in the elbow-bending competition. "I outdrank every Texan I met," he declared. "They dropped around me like flies." * * * * Florence Chadwick conquered the Catalina Island - channel, but the legal seas may engulf her. Movie makers eager for her services are being advised that Katherine Bentley, who wrote the story of her life, "Water is My World," has a 50-per-cent interest in her story for all media. Florence's lawyer says the swimmer is the sole owner. + * * + David Brian was ottered the heavy role with Jimmy Stewart in "Thunder Bay" and roared a mighty "NO, Wants hero parts from now on. WHOA THERE, NELLIE Burlesque bumps are censorable on the screen but film writers play a "let's - get - around - I he-censors" game. Current example: Joyce Holden, as a burlesque tripper in "Night Flower," starts to go into a bump. Then the camera cuts to a bug-eyed male in the audience'just as his head jerks back. * * * * Her co-workers are all admiration for Peggy Lee, who finished "The Jazz Singer" despite, a sudden glandular Illness that would Have floored Miss Average Girl. PeffBy's doctors are deeply concerned about her condition. Now it can be told: During filming of Jennifer Jones' "Ruby Gentry," David O. Selznick, the most tireless mamo writer in Hollywood, *nt a series of typewritten mes sages of "suggestions" to Director King Vidor. Day the film was completed Vidor put all the memos in a neat pile. The stack of memos was thicker than the script of the picture. * • • * Edward G. Robinson is coming out of the shadows as they say In those soap commercials. The screen's "Little Caesar" reports to a major studio again for a Tony Curtis film at U-I with a "Sorrel and Son" theme. * * * * MGM isn't talking about it, but "Mogambo," with Gable and Ava Gardner, is a remake of the Gable- Jean Harlow hit, "Red Rust.". . . Producer Paul Gregory's plans for a stage version of the court martial scene from "The Caine Mutiny" include Dana Andrews for the prize role of the lawyer . . . Jody Lawrence, no longer with the studio, will sue Columbia for failing to give her the star billing provided for by her contract as Mickey Rooney's leading lady in "All Ashore." NO SPRING CHICKEN Unless Henry Fonda changes his mind, another top star will do the film version of "Mr. Roberts." Henry told Josh Logan months ago that he was afraid he wouldn't have the younger-than-springtime look required by the camera for the role of the young naval officer. * * * » Gangsters' new title for Paramount's remake of "Spawn of the North": "What Makes Salmon Run?" * • • * Rosemary Clooney's stll ducking a direct answer to the "Will-you- wed-Jose Ferrer?" riddle, but pals are betting there will be wedding bells early next year . . . Gordon McRae's wife, Sheila, is taking singing lessons from the late Grace Moore's coach, Lillian Goodman... Fox is talking to Jack Haley about a one-picture deal. The film version of "Top Banana?" w * * * "Captain Bligh of Australia" is on MGM's new schedule. Big question: Will Charles Laughton, who once said he would never repeat, the character, change his mind about Bligh? His Captain Kidd with Abbott and Costello is practically the same character. Busy actor department: Ronald Reagan, allergic to moleskin, is acting—and scratching—his way through "Law and Order" at U-I. MISS MINNIE PINNYSQUEEZER— Was a merry old maid.
