Babson, one of the nation's foremost economists, this week ^ave Courier News readers what appears to be one' of the better remedies 'fo"r"".strik"es"\vhich has been advanced Hiring•"the" long; months of bickering, JMiiterinp, trawling, and in som* 1 Jriaces bloodshed, ! This'turmoil between labo r nml the men with the brains to run the fac- 'tories has come at a time when unity might have put a debt-burdened nation on solid ground with a chance to come out frpm irtider the economic up- tjeavals bi^ight about by the most ex- jpcnsive war the world has known. • Instead, the richest of all nations *is embroiled in unprecedented turmoil -Jwhich endangers the wealth of the Irich aiicLr>6or alike,in a country which ',shquld be producing 'foods and goods for ]}er own people and providing maximum [assistance for the people starving in fother..lands because of a destructive jwttr. f Mr. Babson's cure: He would let ;the...rail .and coal strikes rage un- jchecked- until the voters in the land | get so ,mad that they would put a stop • to them. ' " : ! That is easier said than done, but • experience may demonstrate that it 1 would have been preferable to the .•^mmpeiniig /tactics displayed in high "^government, circles where great men £ai)pare)Hly jverc afraid of stepping on §.he toes ,pf some over-rated labor . i jGoliath who might be felled by a modern David armed with less than a slingshot';' ;,..-• • And of those pampering tactics, Mr. iBabson has this to say'- "The patient '(labor) needs a surgical operation. The [present method of the government putting on hot packs to temporarily re- .HfeA'fc'tlid"'flain''is simply delaying the i'inal solution'." | The finVrsqlutiqn should come from 1 those with level'heads'in'the ranks of ' j organized labor, and it should come ^ quickly for they are in danger of lost ing much which has been rightfully t gained over, a long period. It may be r thijt _th'e'. voters are madder now than Public Be Damned A royally for the union from cool production, demanded by John L. Lewis, Is nothing less than usurpation of the government's powder, taxation. This issue injected by the high potentate of Hie miners is probably the most insidious ol a number of revolutionary proposals set forth by labor unions since the end ol tlic war. It goej far beyond the realm of collective bargain- Ing. It not only constitutes FJI invasion ol property rights but even Infringes upon the functions ol government Itself. '1'hc similarity of royalty extortion to lax collection Is pointed out by none other than Harold Ickes, who by no stretch of the imagination could be labeled an adversary lo iHciicrJ concepts. Ti,c comparison would he less clrlltlni! dirt It, come from other than n staunch New Dealer. This proposal of Mr. Lewis transcends even New Deal fantasies. Mixed up \vith the fundamental danger ol thn )>r<n>o;iUon is nn element o( liyproerlsy that could come only Irom a callous exploiter of both worker and public. Ostensibly the project is for Ihc benefit of the mine workers—to provide hospituUxaUoii awl similar service. Actually it i.s nothing more nor less than a scheme to augment swoolen union war chests for further Inroads on the public purse. Nr.tioivU legislation should be yasseil to proscribe I'.U such proceedings as those pro-posed by Lewis. A more subtle threat to American Institutions Is involved than any that heretofore has been posed by union demand. A grent present danger is that thfi public may -be beguiled Into a false Idea of the situation. There are few Americans who would not be willing to pay a few cents a ton more for their fuel if II meant the saving of thousands of lives as Lewis deceptively alleges. As In the case ol many another bogus philanthropy, the public may fall for llie scheme. The mine operators face more than n collective br.rgnlning issue. They face the re- siXMisibUity of protecting the American public from its own possible gullibility. The fact that mine operators stand to lose nothing in dollars and cents, since this Is one assessment against . operation [hal would be unquestionably passed on to the consumer, should not lessen their moral stamina. It will be to Ihe credit of the industry if those who have the resolution of tlie controversy in their hands stand firm ; for their convict Ions anil"" prefect 'trie ""consuming public fi-om a' clumsily, but cleverly concealed fraud. —MANUFACTURERS RECORD.

While Larry Parks, in Hollywood, and Ills wife, Betty Garretl, in New York, talked about how much they loved ^aeh other over the long- distance telephone, Johnson the heel, listened in on an extension. It was so accidental, too. A Columbia studio press agent spent only call. Lurry almost missed a love seen': with Rita Hayworth while on the phone. Harry Colin, who Is Larry's hoss, paid the bill.

ALL PAUTIES AClKf.KD A press agent figured it would be good idea to let Johnson listen in to one of their long-distance calls. Larry thought it was a good idea, too— the studio would pay for the cull. Ditto Betty. 'Hie call caught Larry in a makeup-chair at the Columbia studio.
