A't re Ct j, Ad Lose While Strike !s On The fellow who K«« around after the parly and figures out just how much the whole jamboree cost everybody lias ;i rather unpleasant jot), but a necessary oni'. Probably it's a little bit enrly to start doing tlml on this famous Toledo strike. The party isn't entirely over yet; indeed, the neighbors haven't even stopped yelling for the police. But it has gone far enough so that we- cat} get a pretty fair line on the cxjwnsu.s. First of all, Toledo itself has paid plenty .for it. Toledo is out at the pocket for the expenses of police work. A lot of perfectly innocent Toledo citizens saw their windows broken, their homes surrounded by scenes of pitched battle, their rest ruined, and the tenor of their lives disrupted. Some of them got their heads laid open, as well. • • * Then the taxpayers of Ohio have a bill to meet for tKose flOO national guardsmen, those truckloads of tear gas bombs, and so on. The regular workers at the factory where the strike was held are out at the pocket, too. They lost many weeks' wages; their wives and children could probably give you a pretty graphic description of what it lias cost them. Nor have the stockholders in the factory company, gained anything. It cost money to fight that strike. Some of it will l>e paid by the above-mentioned Toledo and Ohio taxpayers; u lot of it will come out of the company treasury. When you finance a strike like this one, you can't pay off with old poker chips. W • • Who, then, won anything out of the strike? The answer is obvious; nobody at all. In plain English, then, this strike, like all strikes, has been a fearfully expensive luxury. Did people know in advance that it was going to be expensive? They did, of course. Then why wasn't some fair settjement agreed on in the tirst place, to save all hands this expense? Because some people got a kick out of being steadfast and unyielding. Because it's easier to say "he damned to you" and fight than it is to make OUT OUR WA\ 7 those compromises which sire essential to industrial peace. because some industrialists ami some labor leaders haven't yet learned that the hardest and most protracted kind of negotiation is cheaper and simpler than a strike. —Bruce C;iHun. Beyond Public Service Once again—and in New York, an usual—we have one of 'those cases in which a public servant in found to have enjoyed an income far greater than the one he has drawn from the pyblic treasury. This time it is a city court justice. During 44 months this ornament lo the bondi drew a salary of $40,030; in the same period he managed to put ?!!(),- 6b'0 in the bank. As a result, the New York Bar Association has brought proceedings to have him removed from office. It is conceivable, of course, that a man in such a position mi^hl l>e entirely innocent. He might have inherited money from a rich uncle; he might have made somu very lucky investments; he might, heaven knows, have held a winning ticket in the Irish sweepstakes. Rut as a general thing, it public servant whose de]H>sils HO greatly cxcral his visible income belongs back in private life, just as quickly as he can be put there. Tying Up Recovery The importance to our national recovery of straightening out the tangle which still enmeshes a great many bank depositors is forcibly illustrated by a recent statement from J. F. T. O'Connor, comptroller of the currency, who reveals that nearly a billion dollars in deposits is still fro/en in closed national banks. This money is tier! lip in 1,520 banks; so far, less than a million of it has been released to depositors. A billion dollars'could buy a lot of goods and hire a lot of men. If some equitable and not-too-expensive way could only be found to release it, the whole recovery program would get an immense stimulus.
