A Northwestern Universi- i ty chemist said Wednesday the value of all chemicals in the average adult '· human body has risen to ! S3.50. i This represents a 257 per cent increase over the same chemicals' estimated i depression-era value of 98 cents in 1936, s;iid Donald T. Format!, assistant professor of biochemistry in the university's medical school. In percentage terms, I Forman said, the adult j body is composed of: oxy! gen 65 per cent; carbon 18 I per cent; hydrogen 10 per ' cent; nitrogen 3 per cent; calcium 1U per cent; , phosphorus I per cent, ! and other elements, including traces of gold and silver, ]\' 2 per cent. Chorines Kick for Money "We \vere engaged until last week. Then he began teaching me how to drive." Tax Change Aids Film Employes LOS ANGELES -- Elimination of the property tax on film inventories was credited Wednesday with preventing a seasonal layoff of Hollywood movie industry employes. Councilman Paul H. Lamport -- a chief booster of the tax change -read into the ciiy council record a letter from Donald P. Haggerty. business representative of f i l m technicians u n i o n , local GS3. praising removal of ihe "discriminatory" levy. HAGGERTY said Ilia! in the pas! iliere had been a "virtual shutdown" of all local film producing and processing during December. January and February. This is because, up to now. all film inventories on hand were taxed as of the first Monday in March. "A year ago, there were IS movie films and 39 television scries in production for this period with Mule film processing being clone locally." the letter said. "This year. Hollywood- based companies now have 51 movie films and 45 television series or films in production while some of these are being made out of the state or country, almost all of the film processing, titling and editing is being done in Hollywood." * * * * THE UNION said that last year tit this time only 15 per cent of local sound stapes were in use. "This year there is production activity at nearly 50 per cent of them," the letter reported. Attached to the letter was a communication from Howard D. Fabrick. director of industrial relations for Columbia Pictures, reporting a 20 per cent increase in employment over a year ago. I he price .f gals is going up. Is a chorus girl entitled lo S4UO a week? Should a showgirl gel S-150? T h a l 's approximately \vhut the actor's uiikm. the- American Guild of Variety Artist*, is demanding for girls in Las Vegas, threatening a strike if it's not forthcoming. The Vegas beauties now gel $180 a weel; (S50 a week niotv than tin- New York girls who wont on .strike here and closed the Latin Quarter). The Vegas hotels offered them an pi-r ceni package raise which would bring them in S215. The union declined. There'll probably be a compromise with the gals getting S300 a week. My opinion is that if I ever took out a girl making S300 a week, I'd expect her to pick up the check. Can the now dead Latin Quarter, last of the great girlie night clubs, come back to life? . . . E.M. Loew, the Bostonian who let the club close for nonpayment of rent, dreams of i L' u p e n i n g with SI. 000.0(10 he hopes 10 win from thf union in his lawsuit charging an illegal strike.
