Plans, Estimates Layouts Free Fit Your Room" MANY BUGS ARE SENT ACTRESS California Tries to Stop Wave of Pests Given Vivien Leigh HpLLYWOOD, ( California agricultural commission appealed Thursday to the postoffice department to censor all mail addressed from Georgia to Miss Vivien (Scarlett O'Hara) Leigh and extract the June bugs there- from while there is yet time. While Field Inspector J. H. Caldwell searched Selznick-Inler- national studios tor June bugs, every mail brought more of the green-shelled crawlers to Miss Leigh. She announced with a trace of a shudder that while she believed the Georgia June bug to be a handsome beast indeed, she hoped her well-wishers from the old south would leave their June bugs to prowl their native heaths To Prove Bugs Exist The British Miss Leigh brought the June bugs crisis to California when she got the job to play the southern Miss O'Hara in the movie, "Gone With the Wind.' She'd hardly signed the contract before she was asking what Miss Margaret Mitchell meant in her over-sized novel when she referred to June bugs. Miss Leigh said she never heard o£ such insects. That seemed to have been a mistake. Patriotic Georgians began mailing June bugs westward, so Miss Leigh could see for herself. They arrived by the dozen, the score and the hundred. Some were alive, with gleams in their eyes; some were squashed in transit. They crawled out of letters and they leered from small boxes. Throws Away Pests It got so that Miss Leigh couldn't look a June bug in the face, not even the super-June bug, stuffed mounted on a pin, labeled and shipped by N. H. Giles, the Atlanta entomologist. She dumped all incoming June bugs, dead, alive, and in between, in the bushes outside her bungalow. That's when G. R. Gorton, deputy agricultural' commissioner, became interested. He said June bugs were against the law. He said they were liable to mow down ;he Selznick bushes and move on [rom there. He said there were few critters as congenially hungry as a Georgia June bug. Phillips Company May Send Geological Equipment to Creston CRESTON. W)--II landowners co-operate sufficiently in granting leases, the Phillips Petroleum company may bring geological survey equipment here and make an examination to determine if there is oil or gas in this vicinity, C. O. Stark, vice president of the company, said Thursday. Test drilling will he attempted if such a survey shows sufficient evidence of oil or gas possibilities, Stark added. He said it would be several weeks before definite plans are made and that any such steps hinged largely on whether lease blocks could be filled in. The Phillips company, headed by Frank Phillips, former Creston resident, has had men here six weeks getting leases on land.
