And he has quite a widespread reputation as one of thc film colony's bes.t dressed men. But in Hollywood he sands out for still another reason. Here he is known as 'the man who never had a financial loss. And'that is something of a record when you consider thc reverses encountered by most of tho film folk. For years they have been in thc "cnsy come, easy go" class. WhiW their earnings have ben tremendous, much of their money has slipped through their fingersjmuch of it because of bad investments. You seldom hear Mcnjou's name mentioned in association with Hollywood's big moneyed people. But with •ifctolld fortune ostt**ia|c<l -\i\ excess of TOW.000.000, he belongs close to the top of thc list, just thc same. Ordinarily tight-lipped about his financial dealings, thc actor shed considerable light on this side of his life 'Recapture of Aduwa* News Hoax But the governor, as titular head of the party, is presumed to control thc state committee. In fact, it is a tremendous news story when he doesn't so control tho committee. If Governor Futrcll's advisors don't like thc idea of defending thc policy of filling elective offices by appointment they don't for one minute fool the people by calling an election and then limiting the Democratic nominees to the sole choice of the state committee. It is a waste of public funds—calling that farcial election November 5. XXX The Futrell administration—and this writer as n rule has defended the administration—voluntarily made one of its platform planks the elimination of elective-office appointments, which it was claimed had been carried to too great lengths by Governor Parnell. But no sooner docs thc new administration get well entrenched than it falls back on thc political resources utilized by nearly every state machine. I think, in view of thc limited tax funds available these days, it might be possible to defend for thc time being the filling of elective vacancies by open and frank appointments from thc governor's office until the next election date rolls around—but to purport to call an'election, and then limit it to a 1 ; virtual endorsement of an appointment already made, is an indefensible waste of public funds. Having cast thc die for an election, having decided that the state can afford to pay for an election,, the only "honest arid forthftghr'thing for v "GbV- crnor Futrell to do is to override his advisors and declare the election of November 5 to be open to all comers. That's what an election means in this while wttiting to be called for a scone in "The Milky Way."
