Actor Louis Calhern Finds Writing Letters To Important People Cure For Boredom By BOB THOMAS Hollywood-(/!')-Are you bored, listless, III at case? Then write a letter, "advises Louis Calhern. But don't write your Aunt Hbr- tcnce or your mother-in-law, the actor adds. Write to the president of U. S. Sieel or the queen of England. ' "It's sort of a hobby of mine," the actor explained. "1 got darted with it when I was touring with plays. 1 was bored with having nothing to do in the evenings, So I .began writing letters. "I happened to own a few shares of : stock.In the Standard OJ1 Company of California, so I wrote the firm a letter, giving a few helpful - hints on how to run the oil business. Oddly enough, I got a reply in the same vein .as riiy letter. That got me started. "1 wrote another oil company, asking If they hud ever heard of a blue-eyed Indian' named Glassy Tongue. 1 told them -this Indian came into my favorite speakeasy back In the 20's, He said he had lots of oil land In Oklahoma and wns'going to mnkc a deal with Standard Oil." But he took such n liking to all of us In the speakeasy thai he let. Us cash in otlr life saving and get In on the deal. I Said 1 hadn't seen him sliicc. . "The company wrote back that It would keep an eye out for any blue-eyed''Indian named Glassy Tongue." far the past few years, Calhern has been penning such letters to corporations and famous person- AB Impertinent* It's ah Impertinence on my part," he admitted, "hut the results, have .been very amusing. Sometimes the companies will answer me with a form letter. But very often the president of the. company will take the trouble to write me." The,fastest results came from a letter to Calhern's boss, Dorc Senary. Calhern wrote the MGM heed about building up his part jn "Mr.l.Corigressrnan/; and Btig-, gtiHed the picture could he Ve- titlcd, using the name of Calhern's character. Five hours later a reply came from Schary. Among other things, the producer said, "our makeup tnon can do wonders with Cnihcrn. They even make him look as young as 82 In 'The Magnificent Yankee." "At present 1 am writing the chairmen of the Democratic and the Republican National Committees/' the actor continued. "I am describing .to them the qualities which the nation will demand in a presidential candidate. In each case, the inevitable choice leads to. Calhern." He'also has written the postmaster general with the news t h a i more people liked iJlnk stamps han purple ones. He urged the printing of more pink stamps. Calhern deplored the current decline In the art of letter writing. "People are too busy watching television end doing other things to wrlie letters any more." he re marked, shaking his .lead.

SimmK, chief of ihr: Agriculture Department'/; Bureau of Animal Industry, s;iicl yesterday the government hsrl found nn evidence that gabotafie was involved in recent outbreaks.of anthrax among livestock. Some of the outbreaks among hogs in Ohio, Indiana and Illinois h»v« been traced to commercial feed given the-animals. The feed' contained bone meal which had been imported from Belgium. This led to rtpcculptlnn, Simms ::sid, that enemy agents might have planted the disease in the Imported bone meal. The Federal Bureau of Investigation, as well as other government agencies, checked the possibility. But nothing has been found to support any such belief. Nevertheless, proposals Ti a v e born advocated by some slate veterinarians ihnt the federal government restrict the importation of bone meal to prevent possible sabotage. Simms said his bureau has not yet been able to ascertain whether the imported bone meal or some domestically-produced -feed was the source of the disease. He said the United .States itself has many sources of anthrax Infection. Soils in wide areas of the country arc infected with the disease spore arid grazing animals often contract the illness if they arc ~not vaccinated. Bones from domestic animals which die of the disease often are processed into meal. If fed to livestock such meal could cause infection. The disease can be spread many other ways--by wild boasts that eat carcasses of animals killed by the disease, for example, and by ^r^s % GALLON Vanilla lei (rum 6k Hollend Bros, letkor Maim Remember! r"' Pick up a handy six-bottle carton of Coke --be ready to serve refreshment to family, hospitality to friends.

And this isn't the firat. time! Just look at Mercury's three-year-in-a-row record: three out of three times winner in its price class; two out of three times Sweepstakes winner against all cars in every class! Look at Lincoln, too. Lincoln won Class G first prize, and provided Mercury's closest competition (or top Sweepstakes honors. The MobllgM Economy Run is open to all cars of every make. Every car is a slock car, selected at. random by the A.A.A. To assure an equal chance for all, regardless of lize and weight, ton-miles-per-gallon performance* determines the winner. A 1962 Mercury Monterey Special Custom Sedan with optional overdrive swept the field with 59.7188 ton-milps-per gallon, averaging 25.4093 miles per gallon. And the engine, that did it is Mercury's famous V-8. The Lincoln Capri Sedan with Hydra-Malic transmission won its class prize with 58.9085 ton-miles-per- gallon, averaging 22.3562 miles per gallon. That's something to think about when you buy a now car. Mercury, which for months has been challenging the industry to mntch it, has now promt its superiority for economy.
