IUPJ — Clark Gable, who gels a six-figure alary as a movie heart-breaker, Ilsslosed today thai it was a lucky ear when he cleared more limn 10CO for himself. He said he hadn't made that, nuch in the lust five years. "With everything going up -taxes, xpcnscs r.mi n,y ajjc—I don't ex- wet to make that niu:li again," 10 said.

He undcrslaiuls le's paid StijOOO a week for his I econd post-war picture, "Tile luckstcrs." But he Isn't keeping; "A single man pays out. almost 10 pc.- ccnl of it for taxus right >f tlie bat," he explained. "My igeut gets 10 i>3r cent. My business manager gets 2.1-2 p;r cent. I have 0 pay for a housekeeper and a ccrctary." , He Ilgurcci it out on tlie fca:K 'f his script and came out minus. "That's wny I have to pay a ousiness manager," he grinned. G::blc wanted to make it cle.iv ,hat he wasn't coniplnlning. "I know I'm still a lucky s;ny," ic said. "But people have the vrong k'ei>. i'.bout movie saalnes. 1 hey think anybody who works in 'lailywood is rollini,. in donwii. "That used ;r> be .true. The c-lct- limc stars n>nde their money bo- ore taxes were high and some ol .hem—like Mary Pu-kford an.-l Jharlic Chaplin and- Harold Lloyd — huns on to it. That kind ot Money just isn't around any more.' When "The Hucksters" winds up In three weeks, • Gable said he would get out of Hollywood as fast is he could for fishing and uolt ill iNDrlhcrn 'Michigan ami Cana- ia. He planned to be Bone at least lour months until work stars on Ills next picture. The 40-year-old- star said frankly thai he didn't know how many more pictures there would be after that. "One thousand dollars a year isn't an awful lo'; to save up to retire on," he said, "I don't know what I'm going to do. "They've got n mighly nice place out ul tlie motion picture reliei home i'or old actors. I've been con- Iribu'.ing to'it regularly. You never can tell." and hcnvy-licm-cccl. 'PUT LETTKII ASIDE Not that anyone wants to re- receive letters of faked chccrlul- ness from a friend or relative. But it isn't fake cheerfulness to make letter sound as happy ;is possible by a careful editing of what goes in it. Next time you write n letter. put it aside for a few hours or a Jay. Then read it over and ask yourself this question: "Will this letter make the one io whom 1 •vm writinK wish he could be with me?" If the answer is "No," tear it up, and start over.
