The 1942 earnings reports of leading corporations, now available, show that '•wealth definitely has been drafted, and help to measure the effectiveness of .thatdraft. "....' The Magazine of .Wall Street has ,analyyed statements of 710 manufacturing concerns. These show that dol- lai-'lvolume of gross business lias risen Tl.pev cent above the 1928-29 pre-de- pr.ession peak. But on that vastly expanded volume,, those corporations last year earned 47 per cent smaller' net profits after (axes. Thai is to say, wealth invested in manufacturing has lo produce more I linn thie'e times as much; lo earn a dollar. of net prolil, as it did in 19*28-29. National Industrial Conference Board studies for the first nine, months of I$'i2 show that taxes contributed sub- flanliallj' to this decline in corporate earnings. > - •• '.-:.•/.'"..

There is no complanji about this con- ."(cnptioii of capital, as a war measure.

Profitable Salvage ; Providence, Rhode Island, .is. finding Hiat human salvage pays financial dividends. An experiment in making "un- oniployables" self-supporting returned §7 for every dollar it cost, and has been placed on a permanent basis. { Each "unemployable" is given indi- ^ jfotcnliality tests, followed by }} Tor the type of work for which lie shows- aptitude. Then a job is found ; BfrrrmsviLLE, (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS > for him througH the U. S. Employment Service. Such work has a social value which can not be measured • in dollars and : cents, It has a war value, in helping to satisfy the national need for manpower. And for ?<100 spent in an experimental month, $2720 was saved that otherwise would have been paid to persons for whom jobs were found during that month.

Jimmy Carr was pleading in hashed but'desperate lone. The reporter had run to get his sliid pliofoeraplter who was a few yards up the train'of. sailplanes. In the Interim, lour ''people held strange conference. "Keep mum, Jimmy!" Lorainc asked loftily. "But why? I thought we had an understanding." "We did! Bui—my lord, we—" 1'al spoke up.. "Loniine, please! You mustn't spoil Die show now. For Jimmy's sake. Your own! Any 'hint of pcrsoniil trouble or scandal thai might involve Jimmy— 1 "That's « tact, Indy!" Big Ed Bryan added. "You belter Jet Miss Pal keep right on using your name." The reporter was back. "That's me one. The ta.ll girl. Rusty. In Hie Hying togs." He was speaking rapidly io his photographer, and he tailed louder to Jimmy now. "Okay, Captain? Is she on?" Ed Bryan stepped in once more to help a friend, and save face hero all around. "Sure she's going," Ed boomed, genially. "Name's Lo—uh, name's Mary Smith. S-M-I-T-H, Smith. More woman interest for this sky •(ruin, see? She's gonna ride with Captain Carr in the (owing plane." "Swell! Can I talk lo her now?" Jimmy, suddenly understanding Ed, grabbed Lorainc's arm. "Not lilt'we get back! Come on, Lorainc!" Nobody noticed thai he used her real name, grabbing her and rushing away toward a jeep. In a moment they were riding up to, the tow plane, far ahead. And the officials assumed this was a signal for everybody else to get going. They saw nil pilots sent to their ships, but most interest centered on Pal Friday — alias "Lorainc Stuart, Captain Car'r's fiancee"— as'she got in the last sailplane of all. And then, before anybody quite realized it, the hour was •! o'clock. A signal was given and far ahead Jimmy started rolling. A groat cheev rose .from the 20,000 spectators. Bands blared oui. People were in H frenzy of excitement, and justly so. Slowly, slowly, • the glider train began to snake along the runway. Then all at once it was gathering incredible speed, Pilots waved. The cheering increased. Like some gigantic kite tail, this sky train lifted gracefully off the ground. It was spectacular! Breath-taking! Here indeed was a beautiful maneuver, and hero indeed was a harbinger of things to come. . . •_:.... Back in the tag-end plane, Pat Friday fell a sensation of achievement and power. She was in the big company and yet she was all alone! Many yards ahead of her was the ninlh plane, .flying prettily as its notch in the kite tail. Phoenix was streaming under them now, for Jimmy was circling, far far iihead. As if she didn't know how many, Pat began counting—I, 2, 3, 4, 5, C, 7, 8, 9, and then her own plane. Beautiful craft, all. In'varied colors against the Arizona sky; * * » CUDDENLY Pat was aware of tliat sky. She looked around the horizon. It was stecl-to-azurc- to-lurquoise until it neared Superstition Mountain; there on its horizon lay an -ominous black. This gave Pat a little shuddery feeling, for she remembered the warnings of death up there. Then of course she laughed. • Superstition was just a legend, a name. Jimmy was making a great arc now, leading back toward the cast and that same mountain. To demonstrate what could be done, he made the train form as deep a curve as possible. It brought him almost halt way' around, or so it appeared, and when he began to straighten again he actually managed lo stick out a handkerchief and drop it. 'Yoo lioo, Number 10!" he called vi<-. radio, devilment in his tone. "Oh!" Pat saw the white dot. Then she promptly dipped her plane in return salute. The maneuver sent a wave up the entire line! It could have been scary, and it was to people who just looked on. Playing crack-lhe- wliip this way in the sky was distinctly unconventional! Radios began to. have their fun about ,the hero and the heroine playing games along the sky train. "Okay, back there in Number 10!" Jimmy now radioed. "You're doing swell, Pat." He quite forgot to call her Loraine. "Not doing so bad yourself,- ' Jimmy." "Arc you scared?" "No." • "You're tops, lady! You have • what it i;ikcs to fly these things!" '. That was deserved praise, but ' imtaelful. Beside him, the real Lorame had heard the conversation in her own. c'ai- phones.. : .:' She reached over and Jlipped bolh sets off the air, then snapped al Jimmy direct: "What do you mean?" Jimmy turned to-hcr. ''Hunh?" "Jim' Carr,' if you don t stop laking iovp lo that girl! Lor.nne ' w;is;bi.iing mad :md Jimmy saw jt "I' wasn't mnkinjg love "; 'You cerlainly : were 'and I don't ' like it. She's u contcmphblc li«le sneak, and if you intend lo nmry ' me you might'ps well understand I won't put up with it. Do you ' hear?" '' • . She.saict it, so vehemently, so harshly; so wilfully, that Jimmy. ' only starpd.SThen he concentiafed on handling his plane. A frown had .'darkened him and his lips were tight. So this was his Loraine!,,The i'irl he wan io marry tomorrow noon! . . . She danced well, looked prctly, but—as . a wife? . . . Apprehension began to assail Jimmy. And yet—"I've obligated myself; I'll go through with it!" he.told himself, flying there. Thus matters rested for 10 minutes. It was'just time enough for Lo- raino to'come'to her senses again. In a nervous strain herself, of course, she b;id done Ihe wrong thing. AJK! now she realized it. Contritely; 1 and "a lift desperately, she smiled at him and began talking in a melting lone. "Jimmy, darling,. I didn't mean it. Not that way. I—you do love n\e, and I do" Jimmcc darling apparently didn't want fb'answer. He flipped back to the radio, began speaking to his pilots ; in strictly technical language, • all-for-biisiness , -Jlow. Even Pat, far bchind'him 1 ,- caught . the odd change in his manner and . tone. • •.. • ••;.••.•-•;.• ••/•/ • "•;.', But'neither.'.Pa't inpr. 1 Jimmy', nor:•? any.ot the." others ;,veally had >time-'s to conjecture on personal details'.". Each of the 10 pilots, plus/Jim r "'my towing them, had seen 'that Superstition cloud. It wasn't a mere cloud now. It was a black,boiling monster, stretching around the compass from north to south. And as a harbinger it was already attacking the sky train with driving, •• pelting, hailstones and . sand. (To Be.
