Orville Wright is fortunate in having lived to see how well his dreams of Hying thron-h space far HP in the sky have I,,.,.,, realized. Perhaps he had such a thought in mind yesterday when he attended that dinner given for him by l.ieu- t.i.imtiUUenenil Nathan Twining, commander of the Army I'OIT.- air materiel command at Dayton.

WALTER WINGHELL Coast-To-CoJist (Copyright, 1946. by The Hearst Corporation) DUFFY, THE DtAMOND, THE DEFENSE— Readei's telephone, write and wire —they want more about Duffy, the Goat.... His hoodlum heart would swell with pride, for, as I • have noted, he reveled in publicity.... Ho may still be alive, 1'or .all 1 w. Last time I saw him, though, was rather long ago, when he '.was kno sent 1.0 Joliet for Killing a young pus who w:1Si buying champagne for Frisco Kata, a West Coast ,-nixdam the Goat fancied ...It.

Pleasure— with that ghost skipper? ind made it slick. As was the cus- Lom then ,thod Ivc had second-floor wine-rooms for "ladies." . Shooting a cash customer was not considered proper protocol-in the section of Chicago known as "the levee." The Goat was .shnrply donouneed, especially since he ilred before the chump paid the check. This unethical behavior lost him the sypmpathy of many friends: But Chew-Tobacco Charlie was loyal. • Charlie had been a brilliant lawyer, who wrecked himself with wlilskoy. He got his appellation because, in Harrison Street police station lockup, when a prisoner wouldn't dig up a dime, Charlie took the case for a bite of his plug. Charlie couldn't do much for Duffy on the murder rap, though he almost stayed sober for the trUtl. The Goat had a long record and he got an intermediate sentence up to the limit. Chew-Tobacco Charlie had _ bocn more successful in the case of State vs. Duffy ,whcn the Goat was apprehended on an allegation that he had committed larceny from the person, to wit, he had bitten a diamond out of its setting In the shlrt- studiof a, peasant from Paducah This unusual felony, too. occurred In Duffy &• Leather's grogshop, but in the main reception-room, downstairs, at the bar. As was the custom then, this tourist had a gem of considerable dimensions screwed Into the front of his hard-bailed shirt. Duff .came around t.o the sucker-side of tho mahogany, regaled the stranger with a couple of hilarious jokes, gave him a awig on the house, slapped him on tlie shoulder; bent forward 'as; he'laughed "heartily at; hia own wit. A few Seconds later, glancing In the mirror over the bar, the gentleman from Kentucky ;aaw-' that the diamond waa gone and all that remained of his stud was-a set of twisted and distorted, prongs. : • He set up a ho\Yl. Duffy was njost grieved, went through the motions, of looking all over the floor for;tho missing stone. But the visitor had' a cobd 1 Idea of w,hat had happened. He went to the police and swore: a. warrant, pointed out the Goat, had him arrested. Duffy wns searched but refused'. to talk. To a suggestion that he had swallowed the "ice" and. hq submit to an X-ray, he replied with a demand tat his lawyer be. summoned, Chew-Tobacoo Charlie ar" rived forthwith and.advised him of his Constitutional rights—no X-ray.. as that would be forcing him ' to testify against himself. The' cops wanted to hold Duffy for natui-aj eventualities, but Charlie got a writ of habeas corpus. Ike Roderick >put up the $2,300 bond. Duffy took-'a trip out of town, to Milwaukee, beyond the jurisdiction. • ' ' . He apppearcd promptly on . the date set for trial, some nine days later. Charlie was only half-lit and, for him. an excellent condition. •; The'only witness against his mari was the studless stranger, who told the diamond was in the shirt when he entered DViffy and Leather's. He had been admiring the gltam of his two-ltarat' sparkier in the ' mirror, just before D'ufty hud come .up clase to tell--him 'the' funny story. Charlie asked, the . whncss how many .drinks he had consumed and got an admission of "perhaps a dozen." 'Charlie waved him off,with "that's all." Duffy" did not take the stand. Charlie argued that, this man, after a dozen drinks of the stuff sold- in Duffy & Leather's, wouldn't know,a diamond from a 'door-knob; that-his-tehtimony was without' oorrdboration; that the 's "partner!'' burden of proof was oin the prosccu- •'' ' ' tion, and it had .ho proof; -that "reasonable doubt" was with the defendant.'All t'his the court acknowledged. Duffy was discharged. he Goat turned triumphantly with his attorney toward the door, !ie said to Charlie: "Dat rube oughta be pinched for perjury." He raised his Itft fist, and, on the pinky setting. "Two karats, he says," blazed a diamond in a. new. shiny sneered Duffy. "Dat jew'ler in Milwaukee says it ain't even one' and two-t'irds!" As we drove past staid'Carnegie Hall, we noticed two , squad-cars, .one at eoch entrance, and we recognized some .plainclothesmen- strolling back and forth. So we.-yot.out to get nosey We- learned 'that Met Op diva Rise Stevens was; doing- the aria from "Samson-and Delilah" on-the stage for the "Carnegie Hull" film. -All doors- 'were rrianne'd—for the lady wore 5250,000 worth of jewels-. . . .They wore' borrowed from Van Cleve- arid ' Arpel, the'Fifth Ave, dealers'. .. .'Lawrence (D'illinger)' Tiernew,. that toughest killer on the screen, was in Lucey's when the two sluggers gave bingo- boss Utlcy the going-over and held movio notables at bny, Tierney was as non-belligerent as a Swedish I Swiss. Truman May Not Need 'To Call Congress Back Spanish "Scotch" Irk* Scotch "Scotch" Makers Pretident Truman Special to Central Press • WASHINGTON—Political observers now are giving odda' that President Truman will not feel forced to call the 79Oi Congress buck iiitp special session, to combat inflation. The president warned when he reluctantly signed the O.J'A- revival bill that he would take such action if the law, as he feared, .failed to curb rising prices. . . Whatever the decontrol board decides to do about restoring c'cll- ings to meats, dairy products and other commodities! it begins to appear to most, observers that runaway inflation has not come. Producers and slaughterers, wholesalers 'and processors are only too anxious to liquidate OPA and get back to normal. They have no desire, generally, to adopt a get-rich-quick policy over a brief span only to find themselves handcuffed by permanent price controls. • . If things should get out of hand before the fall elections, and the administration calls Congress back, the legislators, heeding the angry voice of the voters back home, will not hesitate to enact a law as drastic as the president wants it to be. * • • THE PART THAT ALCOHOL plays in the diplomatic field through its generally wide dispensation at parties and'receptions .is well known. Now that a world shortage is hero. it is playing .another and different role as nations jealously guard .the.good reputti^of their favorite brands, ' ' ' "It: reached the: open recently when the British ambassador to Madrid -filed a- strong protest with the Spanish government for.sell--', irigkas ."Sco.tch''-a whisky made in Spain. Of course, Britain, has.'.used rriueh in her export trade that it was regarded merely as good business to protect the name of "Scotch" as anyone can. :attest who haa-tried some of the substitutes, However, the protest did not sit well with the Spanish, who have! a considerable, pride in some of their own well-known brands. They answered that, since the world is as It Is, you couldn't blame people for knowing what their thirsts demanded and if England couldn't furnish Scotch "Scotch" then Spaniards would slake their- thirsts with their own "Scotch" even if the "Made in Spa.ln"_was'ln diminutive print at tlie bottom of the label. !•.

Chairman Amtrlcon '.,-.'' Economic Poundollon • • . . .' . .•'...-.. ' At debated br v ' . Solomon Barkln ' I ' • Dr. O.' Glenn Saxon • Director of Rftcarch, Textile • I Prafettor oj Eeohumici, IPorkert Union of America \ Yalt Uiilvcnitr MR, BABKIN OPENS: The annual roster of high salaries reflects an exaggerated • premium exacted by business executives through strategic bargaining positions or inside control of the Board ol Directors. Such salaries aren't justified by current wage levels or human needs, nor are they a necessary incentive to good per- forriiancc. Comparable talents and luccesse* in business, public and •cademic life are not so remunerated. Are these men so different from the common lot. that only nn extraordinary financial incentive can assure the application of their talents? The rewards of moderate income and sue- cessful leadership suffice to arouse the most creative application in most walks of life Including business. Many high-salaried executives share in guiding endeavors for which they are nominally, if at all, remunerated. Excessive salaries conflict with the wage practices of some of these very businesses -since they subject the wages of subordinates to the fine- balanced, rational measurements pro vided by job evaluation. No wage curve for job evaluation drawn to encompass a full organization from bottom to top could justify such out• of-line rate* Jui'key men obtain by their control ov«r policy. Such gala- rlei lend themselves to abuse of the administrative trust Executives are known to have shaped corporate fi nancial practice to yield them max imum income rather than the most favorable corporate long-term Interest. Big salaries are morally inexcusable and politically unsound where they stand sharply contrasted with low and inadequate earnings of other workers in the industry, Dr. SAXON CHALLENGES: Mr Barkin seems to be one of those idealists who believe men will work as hard for the benefit of other men and their. families as they will for themselves and their own families. All progress in history came about when the extraordinary worker received extraordinary reward; all benefit. Soviet Russia made no progress until it "discovered" income incentives and the difference between the top and the bottom In Russia U even more than, in the U.S.A. which "discovered" the principle 150 years ago.-Big salaries are established competitively and the notion men will not accept the highest bid for their services i* just silly. ' MB, BARKIN REPLIES: Financial Incentives are not at Issue. The question Is whether extraordinary salaries are necessary. Big salaries don't explain our scientific, cultural and social advances. The discovery of atomic fission wasn't the product of "bik; salaries". Our fighters"made their sacrifices for Idcali^ather than "big .salaries". Dr. Saxon's profession, teaching. Includes some of the greatest contributors to human progress. Do they requir« extraordinary salaries? How many business executives believe the only motive for ac- complishment'Is extraordinary compensation? Big salaries «ren't. established competitively; they are. fixed by management control and frequently by questionable corporate practices. Dr. Saxon should reverse his inquiry and list the impressive number of executives with big ««la- rie« iwho aro not "•'extraordinary worker*". ' " DR. SAXON OPENS; Since the advent of personal income lax, the dollars on the pay check don't IndlcaU the salary—the take-home pay alon§ counts. The executive income may bt in six figures, but taxes take well over 80%. -Why is an executive offered 'a lot of money? Because h«- has proved to the satisfaction of the owners of tbe business that he can find the customers necessary to keep both the tools of production and th« worker fully employed. That is bl« job.. Without customers there would be no business and, .for. the wage- earners, no' jobs. The executive U entitled to, a reward appropriate to the size of the, business and th« number ol workers for whom bt finds employment: If through con- dscatory taxation he isn't offered enough take-home pay to reward him adequately for his services, the owners of some competing buslneo will offer it to him. Barsain-rate executives usually mean lost customer!, loss of tool-use and loss of employment. Here again the wage-e*rner is the heaviest suflcrer. Because the customer always wants a better product, at a cheaper price, he will Me hit right to buy where h« i» satisfied. We need many more ol tho«e executives who ar« worth §UU more money. Labor unions also ne»a good top executives and they h»ve'» system of rewarding .them In mt j'' r instances even more than busmen executives. This Is done by flvlnl them > small salary (taxable) tni» huoc expense account which li not taxable. If business tried thl«, Ui« howl of protest would shake the n«- tion.' . ' : MB!
